The Space

Our large, charming home is perfectly placed just 20 meters from both the main shopping street and from Paraty's historical town centre, with it's restaurants, art galleries, bars, and frequent cultural events. It's also only a 5 minute walk from the bus station - where we will be happy to meet you, and help carry your bags here.

Your private room has direct access to a large balcony via the tall, wooden shutters - perfect for keeping the room nice and dark at night, for a good night's sleep.

It The house has two bathrooms (with hot shower) - yours is just down the corridor. You will be sharing it with a maximum of one other person.

We set up the kitchen and the table, all ready for you, and you are free to help yourself to fruit, cereals, bread, spreads, eggs, cheese, milk, yogurt, coffee, tea and sugar, and to cook if you want to. As you are on holiday, please leave the clearing up to us! You are also very welcome to let us know in advance of any special dietary requests.

You also are free to use all the communal areas of the flat:

- living room with television and DVD collection

- large kitchen/dining room
(we only provide breakfast, but you are free to use the kitchen for other, seld-catered meals, as well as its equipment and its cooking essentials - oils, butter, spices, salt).

- Roof. Access if from the kitchen, perfect for topping up your tan, or checking out the great view of the town and mountains.

As an optional extra while you're here, why not pamper yourself - Talluana is a professional holistic massage therapist, trained in India and London, with professional experience in London and Paraty where she works at the local spa; she has a variety of treatments available at the best price in town - from R$60 for an hour's treatment.

There is WiFi available but it is not very reliable - you should be able to check emails, book your next place to stay etc., at some point, but it comes and goes and is not available all over the apparment. However, there is a really nice hostel round the corner with WiFi (which also does great drinks and hosts regulalr live music) plus there is a cheap internet cafe next door.

The flat has outdoor areas (the roof and the balcony) so smokers are welcome to use these, just not inside please.

When Paraty hosts big events, prices go up - it's just the way things work here, so please consult the calendar to check the pricing for the time you want. It also contains some information about what's going on: music festivals from jazz and blues to latin, literature, arts and crafts, dance, traditional religious processions....and of course cachaca!

We now have a new member of the house - Berimbeu, an adorable kitten (for now). He is very cheeky and playful and causes no problems unless you suffer from cat allergies - which is why I have put this information up

We are not a couple, just good friends who run this place together. Therefore please do not be surprised if it is just one of us hosting you. We might both be there, but often one or the other of us is away.

We also have a lodger, Alessandro. He is a friend, and may also be able to help you with some interesting trips around the area, as he is a (very good!) local guide :)

In general, if you have any wishes regarding your stay we, will do our best to make it special for you!

Interaction with Guests

There will always be time for some useful information about things to do, getting around, which tour operators are good, etc.

As for more soaical interaction, it depends. Talluana works, but will usually be around in the morning time, and often brekafasts with the guests. Im general it will depend on how busy she is and also, of course, how much you, the guests, want to interact. Often, if time and work allow it, going out for meal or a drink or interacting in general is fun, but of course it is never a problem if guests prefer to explore the town on their own, or like their privacy in general. We are pretty felxible.

  • I had an amazing time in Paraty thanks to Talluana and Piers!
    The room is cosy and very clean, the house is warm and simple, very well located. I felt like at home, very pleasant.

    I will definitely come back to your place!

  • We had a really nice stay at Talluana's house.
    It was definitely what I would call an Air Bnb experience, and we spent a really good time in Parati, even if the wheather was not so good.
    We had everything we could expect, the room was fine, close to the historic center (5 min by walk), and the little cat Berimbeu was just so cute (and a bit nasty...).
    Even if Talluana was working, she did her utmost to make herself available for us, and brought us to really nice places in Parati for eating and drinking, with local people and live music... Just so cool!
    This will remain one of the best memories of our trip in Brasil.
    Piers was not present in Parati, but we also had the opportunity to meet him in Rio later on, and he was also really nice and showed us some faces of Rio we would have never known without him.
    Thanks again to both of you.

  • We arrived late in Parati, still Talluana managed to pick us upfrom the busstation. She led us to her nice cosy flat only 5 mins away and really close to the historic center. We fellt right at home because of the warm welcome we got from her and some of her friends. The room was as advertised, clean and with access to the balcony ( with a hammock - Yeah!). We didn't get to check out the roof, 'cause the weather was unfortunatly not for sunbathing. The breakfast was great, cereals, coffee, butter, cheese, jam and fresh breadrolls everyday.
    If you want to stay close to the historic center this is a place i would definitly recommend (allthogh i like my showers with a bit more waterpressure).
    Talluana is a lovely host and the housecat is just adorable.
    If you are allergic to cats pick another place 'caus e Barimbeau, the cat, likes to cuddle and get up close :-)

  • A perfect location, in a beautiful place. Talluana and Berimbau were wonderful hosts. She provided a complete and spectacular breakfast everyday and a lot of great conversation. We also had the pleasure of going to one of her favorite restaurants with her for an unforgettable meal, one of the best we had during our stay in Brazil. Highly recommended.

  • Talluana was a great host, made us feel welcome and told us good places to go out. She had great recommendations on what shouldn't be missed in Paraty. Room was good, bed was comfy and breakfast was ready when we woke up. She also has a super cute kitty that loves to play. Thanks for a great weekend :)

We are friends who came to travelling to Brazil and ended up running a Bed and Breakfast together! It´s in Paraty, right in the historic centre of this wonderful town. We are not a couple, and if you come and stay it might be just one of us hosting you as we both like to travel and sometimes need to for work. But both of us can help you with information about the town and things to do, and we both enjoy hosting! We have been on Airbnb for a while now and have both been guests and hosts, and really like the whole system, site, and opportunities for great places to stay (and people to meet) that it gives, Talluana is a practising holistic therapist (speciality - ayurveda) and can offer massages in the comfort of the B and B´s treatment room. Piers is from England, and Talluana is from Brazil.
