Location: Solar da Ponte is located in the historic town of Tiradentes – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a magnificent colonial town in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Tiradentes is an enchanting village of leafy squares, baroque churches and cobbled streets. Set against the Sao Jose mountains, it’s utterly picturesque.
How to get here: Fly to Belo Horizonte (CNF) and take a 3,5 hour road transfer to Tiradentes.
Structure: Solar da Ponte is a colonial-style manor house with 18 rooms, all elegantly furnished with antiques, local artworks and fresh flowers. The afternoon teas are a highlight, whilst its gardens with orchids growing in the trees and visiting marmosets never let you forget where you are.
Why staying here: Solar da Ponte is one of the best places to stay in Tiradentes. The hotel does not accept 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.
