  • Strikingly beautiful, beautiful Lake Park. A pity that the maintenance of the House seemed to be pretty precarious and was completely closed to visitation. Could also post signs with historical information, vegetation, etc. Despite the beautiful gardens, the structure appears to be abandoned.

Where to stay in Sao Jose Dos Campos

The vast majority of accommodations in Sao Jose dos Campos are concentrated around the city center, as well as its surrounding inner neighborhoods, including Vila Sanches and Jardim Matarazzo. Catering mainly to the businesspeople who make up the majority of visitors to the city, many of the chain hotels fall into the mid-range and high-end categories, often with excellent facilities but not much character. You can find some smaller inns and guesthouses, which are more suitable for budget travelers, scattered around the inner city. For close proximity to a spacious park, look for accommodations around Jardim Bela Vista.
