My stay at Quinta do Alto was a very enjoyable experience. The rooms were everything they needed to be and everything was at a level of quality you should be able to expect from a hotel/b&b.

I wasn't overwhelmed by the amount of choice regarding the breakfast, but there was enough of it and the products were all fresh and delicious.

They also offer meals during the other times of the day and what we had was of great quality.

Now, the location. The place is located between petropolis and theresopolis and both places are about half an hour away. The poussada is located near the top of a mountain and the view if beautiful, especially when lying near the swimming pool. Being so high however, means it was kind of hard to reach the first time though, but that problem dissapears quickly. Don't expect to reach this car without a car though, so foreigners should absolutely have a rental car if they want to stay here.

Finally, the host. The fact that i will spend a paragraph writing about him should say enough, i guess. He was very helpful and was part of the reason i was so fond of this place. He would always strike up a conversation and was a very good french speaker (i can't judge his english though).

I highly recommend the poussada if you want a calm stay near petro- and theresopolis.

This place is unbelievable. Fernando, Valeria y Maria make you feel instantly relaxed and like at home. Great taste in the architecture and interior decoration. My room had a jacuzzi tub and a walking closet! The room was impeccable. The view from the suite and dinning room is aerial and panoramic over the mountains and valley. Very clear skies at night and total silence.
Fernando's cocktails and Valeria and Maria food excellent and a different home made cake every breakfast.
A place to remember and go back!

High upon a tall hill, overlooking a quiet and verdant valley, stands this small, intimate, and luxurious pousada. The room was very large, the bathroom appeared new, the jetted tub was wonderful---- and the bed and linens were top-flight. After a day hike and a quiet night's sleep, the delicious and huge breakfast was very welcome. That it is served before a wall of glass overlooking the beautiful valley is an additional delight. The pool and social areas similarly are superb.

The staff and owner were attentive, discrete, friendly, and knowledgeable about the area.

Altogether a perfect experience and an unsurpassed destination in this area.

This guesthouse is well indicated, coming from Itaipava. We had some trouble entering the address in our GPS, using Itaipava. You will probably have to use Petropolis as city, even though Petropolis actually is more than 30 minutes away. It is located in a guarded condominium site. It is situated quite high and the access and drive way can be quite steep, but all are well paved. The elevation make sure you have a great view of the valley. We were warmly welcomed by Maria, who took good care of us. There are a view cats around and two friendly (but a little scared) dogs. The house is well designed and has lots of space. There is a lovely terrace by the pool and also the inside eating area has great views. We were in the Loft room, which to our surprise wasn't higher up, but one floor down. It constists of a living room, kitchen and bedroom. It has a fire place which was nice because the weather was a little chilly, especially at night.
We stayed on a Monday and were the only guests. The Pousada also offers dinner service. There is a good and varied menu, but Fernando (the owner) and his staff are excellent cooks so any suggestion he makes is good. We had a power cut due to the rains but there is emergency lightning and the bistro was lighted with candles. It didn't interrupt or influence our night. The wifi is free and good everywhere.
Fernando is an excellent host who speaks French, also, and his staff are friendly and very welcoming. We had an excellent stay here.
