Solar da Ponte

Tiradentes | Brazil

An exceptional rustic pousada located in the heart of the delightful historic village of Tiradentes in Minas Gerais. It is family-run, comfortable, tastefully decorated bedrooms, delicious Brazilian breakfast and English afternoon tea

Solar da Ponte is located in the historic town of Tiradentes – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a magnificent colonial town in Minas Gerais. Tiradentes is an enchanting village of leafy squares, Baroque churches and cobbled streets. Set against the Sao Jose mountains, it’s utterly picturesque.

Solar da Ponte is run by its owners, English nature-lover John Parsons and his Brazilian historian wife Ana Maria, that throughout Brazil any talk of Tiradentes will invariably include the Parsons and their charming traditional country pousada.

This colonial-style manor house with its 18 rooms, all elegantly furnished with antiques, local artworks and fresh flowers, has been nurtured over the last 30 years to become the very best of its kind. It’s deeply civilized: afternoon teas are a highlight, whilst its gardens with orchids growing in the trees and visiting marmosets never let you forget where you are. 

No children under the age of 8.

Take a stroll around the historic centre of the town and admire the local artworks on display and the variety of handicrafts. The native tropical forests are stunning, and the imposing Sao Jose Mountain Range, now an ecological reserve, creates an awe-inspiring backdrop. Excursions to the countryside, visits to fazendas and preservation areas, on foot, horse-back, by 4×4 or bicycle can all be arranged.
