A charmingly rustic 5 bedroom country home in the heart of the Atlantic Rain Forest, natural habitat for some 300 species, orchids and a great variety of birds and fauna, located inside the 'Três Picos' state park, itself one of the last primeval rain forest covered areas in the state of Rio de Janeiro. (22°24'21.00'S 42°25'43.00'W)
Overall, 3 hours away from central Rio: just over an hour's drive (traffic permitting) from Rio's international airport takes us to the edge of the park where the road climbs for half an hour to an altitude of 1000 meters and there we travel through the forest for another 40 minutes over a dirt road to A Estalagem (The Lodge), a 3 acre property with a fully equipped professional kitchen, large living room with a fireplace and 5 bedrooms.
We have our own spice patch, local organic vegetables and freshwater stream straight from the mountain! If you are bird watcher, hiker, nature walker, want to swim in the river, or just want to read books, listen to music and relax, this is the place!
We include fresh linen and towels and full use of the kitchen facilities, as well as a house keeper for daily help with cleaning. We have a barbecue, a small swimming pool and there is a river crossing the property where you can have a dip!
Optional activities that can be booked: Rafting, tree canopying, mountain biking, yoga, music, and culinary workshops.
Booking is a minimum of 2 nights and our maximum capacity is 10 people (5 double beds).
