Quinta das Videiras
Qunita das Videiras is an enchanting boutique hotel just steps from the shops and restaurants of lakeside Lagoa, Santa Catarina Island.
Quinta das Videiras is a quirky and utterly charming little boutique hotel in the lively little lakeside resort of Lagoa on Santa Catarina Island. The main building is a converted 19th century residence with 11 romantic suites decorated and furnished with antiques, ornaments and works of arts recalling the age of Portuguese colonisation. You’ll also find items from further afield: the reception area and restaurant feature vivid coloured glass imported from Thailand.
Each room has rustic tiled floors, some have French windows. All are provided with the amenities you might need: cable TV, air-conditioning, free Wifi and a large bathroom.
There’s a lovely pool area with sun loungers, at one end of which is a spa offering massages. On a fine day you can take breakfast in the flowery garden. Service is friendly and helpful.
What our clients say
Most Memorable Moment: Spotting 7 Jaguars in Refugio Caiman and Iguacu Falls. I also had my photo taken with Ronaldinho on Copacabana Beach. Ha!BW, London
Highlights?: Getting wet at Iguazu on the boat trip. Cooking in Stella's home on Flavours of Bahia tour.JM, Glasgow
The Iguazu falls were amazing. Brazilia was also a real experience and is undersold - it is a really singular place to visit - the parliament and other buildings are free to visit if you time it right. Rio was Rio and not to be missed all the highlights are highlights and will never forget visiting Christ the Redemptor on a steaming hot day. Christmas on Copacabana should be experienced by everyone - forget the turkey in the cold- this is how to live!AB, Reading
Highlight?: Diversity of wildlife in Brazil. The Iguacu Falls. Swimming in the Rio Negro. Seeing a Sloth. The whole journey was a trip of a lifetime.JW, Isle of Islay
Highlight: Walking on the trails through the rainforest on Ilha Grande.CB, Leeds
The whole trip was memorable because it was one fantastic adventure in four parts . We absolutely loved the stays in the Amazon & the Pantanal and felt exhilarated from the visits. We saw & experienced great things and have so many lovely memories.GHS, Iver
