About the property

Six suites. Up to 16 people are accommodated. Several leisure options.


Leaning over an extensive lawn, the landscaped garden design is a charm with Orchids, Bromeliads and many birds. The Casa de Cima plateau has a breathtaking view of the Forest of its property and the Serra dos Órgãos.

Constructed of solid clay brick, wooden pillars and steel beams, has all the floors of the rooms and rooms in mahogany, except the upper suite whose floor is covered by carpet.

It is composed of 6 suites and generous living room that has a decoration that mixes old objects, rustic furniture made of demolition wood, baccarat crystal chandelier, killins carpets and indian duhies, among others. The Room Theater follows the same line of decoration and features large LCD TV, DVD, Video tape and Sky. The light and the green invade the house in every room, through glass windows and a large skylight in the room that is pierced by the chimney of the fireplace.

Doors and windows open or run, integrate or isolate environments, according to the will of their guests.

On the front porch, on the coldest days, large doors of iron and glass, embedded in the walls, close transforming the space into a winter garden.

The kitchen is an invitation to the party for those who love to cook. For them, another large door, made of wood, hides completely integrating the dining room making the guest, chef, enjoy the company of others. If this is not the case, the door to the kitchen will remain closed, isolating our Chef in the preparation of his treats.

On the second floor there is an office / reading room with a computer plugged into the internet and a small library with various titles and the Dona de Casa suite.

Annex the main house, it has an edicule with barbecue, pizza oven, table / bench for eight people, steam room, shower and one of the 6 suites. Access to it is done by a wooden walkway. Translucent cover prevents people from getting wet on rainy days.

Excelente - Casa e Recepção

  • 5 of 5

Concordamos com tudo que está escrito no último comentário !

Passamos um final de semana ótimo em família. A casa é super aconchegante, de bom gosto e funcional.

A equipe da casa, o Carlos (caseiro), Daniela e a Tati, foram ótimos, simpáticos e prestativos. Carlos nos ajudou nas compras e a Daniela com o menu, e na cozinha com a ajuda da Tati.

Sem dúvida voltaremos em outra oportunidade !

Obrigada !

Excelente casa e recepção!!!

  • 5 of 5

Acabamos de voltar de um final de semana com toda a família na casa. Já queremos voltar!

Casa muito aconchegante e super bem decorada, quartos ótimos, espaço externo muito agradável!

A recepção do Carlos (o encarregado) e a comida da Denise são nota 1000! Sempre disponíveis, atenciosos, sempre com um sorriso no rosto!

Vale ida com familia, com grupo de amigos, crianças... uma delícia! Feliz em saber que em 15 dias estaremos de volta com outro grupo! Certamente viremos mais vezes!!!

E para a mulherada que enlouquece com uma feirinha, rola uma caminha básica à pé até a feirinha de Itaipava e fazer umas comprinhas por preços ótimos!

Ah, alguma pessoas me perguntaram se dar para ouvir o barulho da estrada da casa: só dá pra ouvir da piscina e do quarto que fica do lado de fora, quando estão todos em silencio, ou seja, nada que atrapalhe a paz do lugar!

Aluguei a casa para um fds em família , só tenho a agradecer pelas fotos fidedignas pois fechei sem ter nenhuma indicação além da pesquisa pelo site . Foi tudo maravilhoso! Tudo em perfeito estado e limpeza. Aproveito para reforçar que os funcionários da casa são ótimos . Simpáticos , organziados e muito prestativos. Os três ( Carlos , Denise e Fabricia ) merecem também 5 estrelas ! Voltaremos em breve ! Vale muito a pena !!

A Casa de Cima

  • 5 of 5

Nada melhor que a temporada que passei na Casa de Cima. Ambiente super acolhedor, linda casa cercada de verde, excelente serviço, muita paz e tranquilidade, mas pertinho de todo "buchicho" de Itaipava e da Feirinha. Vou voltar! Com certeza!
