Quinta das Videiras is a quirky and utterly charming little boutique hotel in the lively little lakeside resort of Lagoa on Santa Catarina Island. The main building is a converted 19th
century residence with 11 romantic suites decorated and furnished with antiques, ornaments and works of arts recalling the age of Portuguese colonisation. You’ll also find items from further afield: the reception area and restaurant feature vivid coloured glass imported from Thailand.
Each room has rustic tiled floors, some have French windows. All are provided with the amenities you might need: cable TV, air-conditioning, free Wifi and a large bathroom.
There’s a lovely pool area with sun loungers, at one end of which is a spa offering massages. On a fine day you can take breakfast in the flowery garden. Service is friendly and helpful.
