About the property

Enjoy true Brazilian hospitality at a family farm retreat, nestled in a lush mountain valley, hours from Rio. The centerpiece of this stunning rustic getaway, is a 100 year-old main farmhouse with 6 bedrooms, a lounging room with circular fireplace, and a dining room adjoining a wood-stove country kitchen where delicious regional meals are served. The house is surrounded by vast stretches of grassland and forests, crossed by a pure-water stream and natural swimming pool. There are three additional chalets with eight rooms; access to a bath house with sauna and showers, jacuzzi, and lounge with a bar. On the grounds, an outdoor barbecue and a large bamboo gazebo ideal for relaxation, meditation and games.

Amazing stay! Wonderful place to rest with friends

  • 5 of 5

Me and my friends enjoyed a Wonderful weekend at this farm.

Everybody got crazy about the place and the views.

The staff were very kind and all the place was clean and organized. Also we could share a good breakfast together!

I'm sure that I'll come back in the future, as well as everyone that went with me!

Juan was very kind and took off all my doubts.

We had nothing to complain!

Não existe lugar igual! Mágico!

  • 5 of 5

Não existe nada igual! Já viajei muito, mas esse lugar é incrível! A fazenda antiga mas super conservada. O rio que passa na propriedade é perfeito para banho, para crianças e adultos. Tem uma sauna que fica na beira do rio que combina perfeitamente com a água gelada. Um lugar para voltar muitas vezes! Mágico! Lareira! Fogueira! Uma delícia!

Nota 8

  • 4 of 5

As instalações são boa e confortáveis, porém sendo um imóvel antigo carece atualmente de uma melhor conservação (o piso em alguns cômodos, por exemplo da suíte do porão).

Estava bem arrumado e limpo.

O proprietário é extremamente gentil e prestou todas as informações solicitadas. Superou as expectativas.

Gostaria tb de mais algumas cadeiras na mesa da sala de jantar.
