Alison's pousada review
Ponta da Piteira wasn't on my visiting list because I didn't know it existed before my trip, but what a treat! A real hidden pousada with only 3 enormous chalet-type suites, all with spectacular views over the lagoons of Ibiraquera and the beach beyond.
This is a boutique pousada hotel par excellence. All the suites are beautifully designed using reclaimed wood and bricks allegedly crafted by slaves in the 19th century. They are also incredibly comfortable offering super king-sized beds with beautiful bed linen, minibar, jacuzzi, SKY TV, and a whole range of DVDs if you don't want to go out.
In the shared areas of the pousada there are 2 pools, one for swimming laps, the other heated when necessary just for lounging; inside a gourmet restaurant with open kitchen and a small seating area where breakfast is served.
This is a perfect place for couples- as personal and at the same time as private as you could want. Just don't think of sitting in owner Henri's chair, which is even labelled with his name. Some things are sacred!
Ponta da Piteira is situated up in the hills above the Praia de Ibiraquera, the next beach south after Praia do Rosa and Praia da Luz. From the dirt road which leads you up to the pousada you might think you are totally cut off here, but wi-fi works and it is actually only a 5 minute walk down to the lagoon where the pousada keeps kayaks ready to take you across to the beach.
Come by car if you want to go out in the evenings or explore the surrounding area; otherwise you won't need or want one. Ponta da Piteira is a special place just for the 2 of you, a place where you can chill completely looking out at the amazing views, in peace, comfort and privacy.
