Vila do Junco

Santo Amaro | Brazil

A rustic eco-pousada, located in Santo Amaro, one of the gateways to Lençois Maranhenses National Park in Brazil. Immerse in the tranquility and charm of a slow life!

Vila Junco is located in the rustic village of Santo Amaro, 2km from Lençóis Maranhenses National Park. Here you will find comfort in a spacious oasis surrounded by nature. The location of the pousada is between the park and the city center, 5-10 min walk to markets, pharmacies, restaurants and bars. 

The suites have independent access through the garden, a balcony, a minibar and wi-fi connection. The suites have permanent cross ventilation, taking advantage of the wind to maintain a pleasant temperature, so there is no air-conditioning. Breakfast is served from 8 am to 9 am.

The pousada was build from ecological materials, sorted from the surrounding region.

Santo Amaro is a small heaven in the heart of Lençois Maranhenses National Park surrounded by natural beauty. The village is around 4.5 h drive from São Luís and about 2.5 h drive from Barreirinhas, arguable in the best place on the Route of Emotions, as the dunes and the lagoons are within a walking distance from the village.
