Located in beautiful Ponta Negra, the Pousada Italia is a rustic, yet elegant beach property that features a lush courtyard with a pool. Natal's best stretch of bars and clubs is also just 1 block away.
Ponta Negra sits 12 km (7.5 mi) south of the city center, but it's where travelers and locals gather for the best beaches and surfing. The Ponta Negra beach is just an 8-minute walk from the property. Walk 1 km (.6 mi) along the coast to the end of the beach for fantastic views of Morro do Careca, the largest sand dune in the city. Ponta Negra's main thoroughfare is the bustling Avenida Engenheiro Roberto Freire, a 5-minute walk away. Here you'll find plenty of restaurants and shopping. A 20-minute taxi ride will get you into downtown Natal, where most of the city's museums and theaters are located. At night shrimp and seafood lovers flock to Camarones, an elegant restaurant featuring a large dining room that overlooks the ocean. Afterwards you can grab a drink at one of the many bars and clubs that line Rua Dr. Manoel Arauju in the Alto de Ponto do Negra district, just 1 block from this accommodation. Find a tropical outdoor bar and order-up a refreshing Caipirinha -Brazil's national cocktail.
With Natal's year-round tropical weather, the Pousada Italia is designed with the outdoors in mind. The pousada's outdoor pool and lounge area are situated in the picturesque grassy courtyard, lusciously landscaped with palm trees and surrounded by the pousada's white stucco walls. Grill some fresh seafood for an authentic dinner, then challenge a friend to a game of billiards.
After a night on the town, walk back to a brightly decorated room or suite, each with climate control. Many rooms have large sliding glass doors that let in plenty of sunlight and open to the pool and verdant courtyard. Watch satellite channels on the TV and stay connected with complimentary wireless Internet access and the 24-hour business center. All rooms include private bathrooms, a mini-bar with a refrigerator and a safe. The property provides guests with a complimentary daily breakfast buffet from 7:30 AM to 10:30am, served in the breakfast area.
