This beautiful boutique property is one of the best hotels in Paraty, exuding colonial charm with spacious suites overlooking a verdant garden and outdoor pool.

With an ideal location on Brazil's Costa Verde close to the centre of town, Posada Literaria is a restored colonial mansion, taking its name from Paraty's annual literary festival in July. The pousada has a select range of spacious guest rooms, suites and villas, combining traditional and modern styles with colourful décor, luxurious bedding, wooden flooring, rugs, bathrooms with robes and Natura amenities, air-con, TV and Wifi.

The inn has a large library befitting its literary heritage, as well as an attractive swimming pool with sunloungers, spa and gym. The popular farm-to-table restaurant Quintal das Letras offers a range of local Caiçara cuisine using mainly organic ingredients. You're also perfectly positioned to explore this UNESCO World Heritage town on foot and sample its many excellent restaurants.
