Christmas is already happening in Gramado and Canela (nov/2014). Come and see by yourself. Unforgetable!
Have all resources at hand. Easy access to Gramado (7 km) by car or even by bus (every 15 minutes at the bus station, easy to walk there).
The neighborhood is totally familiar, like a small city in the woods. You can listen to the birds every morning and have a resting good time here.
Tehre is an efficient taxi service in Canela, as well as bus to Gramado (15 minutes) and Porto Alegre (2 hours).
