See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Alcino's Pousada

This wonderfully restored 19th century colonial mansion offers ultimate simplicity with all the charm of a boutique hotel.

Situated in the rural town of Lencois, 180 miles west of Salvador, this pousada enjoys the benefits of a town location, but within close proximity of the beautiful mountain scenery of the Chapada Diamantina National Park. It is perfect for those active types, who are able to enjoy hiking and trekking, kayaking, birdwatching, snorkelling and walking. The pousada's guest bedrooms are all different, and furnished with many period photos, antiques and a sizable book collection to peruse, creating a homely and relaxing atmosphere. With excellent and attentive service, this simple but utterly charming pousada, gives a genuine local Brazilian experience, totally different from most other stays.

The real highlight of this place is the sensational Brazilian breakfast, often served by the owner himself, the eponymous Alcino. Led Zepplin's Jimmy Page concurs, writing in the visitors' book 'thank you for a truly gourmet breakfast. I now don't have to eat for the rest of the week.'
