10/10 Exceptional

My stay at Pousada Zefa in Vargem Grande turned out to be one of the most memorable I had ever. It is in a quit neighbourhood with a handful of little restaurants and close to a national park and within ½ hour driving some very beautul beaches. However, the best was the fantastic host, Dani and the relaxed house with paintings, antiques and Miles Davies ... :-) Rarely have I felt more at home! Thanks Dani!
