Pousada Literaria

The Pousada Literaria is located in the historical centre of Paraty, 300 metres from the port. The Pousada is in a fully restored colonial house, furnished to a very high standard with 23 spacious rooms and suites.

Pousada Literaria has a tropical garden and outdoor pool as well as a spa with treatment rooms and fitness area. Meals are served in the Quintal das Letras restaurant or at the pool side bar for more casual dining. Pousada Literaria also has a library that boasts over 3000 books and movies and the hotel is the official host for FLIP’s international literary festival.


Pousada Literaria is in the colonial town of Paraty, just 300 metres from the harbour front. It is a four hour drive along the Costa Verde coast from both Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.
