About the property

Cosy atmosphere in harmony with nature.

The chalets are located in an ecological and preserved area in the middle of the forest.

In front of the chalet there is a tiny waterfall and from the chalet you can appreciate a beautiful view of the Lagoon.

It is a calm and cozy place with privacy, perfect for people who like to be surrounded by nature.

We have two hosting options: The first one is ideal for a couple and another one for a small family. Both loft style with kitchen to prepare simple meals.

The spreads between the chalets, are in size, location within the grounds and building. Ask us about rates for Family Chalet. For Couple Chalet rates are described in the "Rates" menu of this website.

The Chalet family corresponds to double the building area. It is about 100 square meters; It is further away from the main house; It was built with demolition wood, with a fully ecological proposal.

The sanitation system is ecological. The water used in the property comes from the land itself. The flora and fauna are preserved to the maximum with a minimum of intervention. The waste generated goes to a compost (organic waste) and recycling (clean garbage).

In front of the chalets, there is a waterfall that is within the property and a beautiful view of the lake can be admired.

It is a calm, quiet place with privacy, perfect for people who like to be close to nature

You will enjoy a great time watching the animals in their natural habitats; monkeys, lizards and many species of birds such as: woodpeckers; hummingbirds, owls, toucans among others can be seen in this area.

To relax and feel refreshed, there is a heated wooden hot tub with chromotherapy which is hidden inside the forest for our guest to enjoy.

The guests can explore the area on a little adventure, paddling in kayaks that are available, adventuring on track to Costa da Lagoa, making a nice walk (2,5Km) to Centrinho da Lagoa.

Why Andréa Neves chose Canto dos Araçás

Living in such a special place like this when I retired, I wondered: What will I do now to continue working and keeping in touch with "people"? How can I live in such a beautiful place and not share it with a larger number of people? It was with these two questions that I began to think about the construction of the chalets.

I have always been passionate about sports, Yoga and nature. So life brought me to this beautiful place and here I am able to share a little bit of my lifestyle with the guests.

What makes this chalet unique

We are right in front of the lagoon, with the woods around. It is a calm and cozy place with privacy, and yet so close to the beaches and trade in general ... This is all good!

Wonderful relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We visited Florianopolis in July 2015 after a week in Rio de Janeiro, and couldn't have been happier that we chose this location to stay. The chalet is as advertised, very clean, comfortable and private. The 'little downtown' is a walkable distance. We would usually walk there and taxi back. This is a great location if visiting Florianopolis and you are looking for a relaxing location. It is very near to a nice hiking trail to some of the fishing villages along the lake. Andréa is a wonderful host with great advice on some of the authentic places to see. Highly recommend.

Un lugar especial!

  • 5 of 5

Imposible describir la armonia y paz que sentimos al estar en este lugar, cómodo, aislado pero cercano de lo necesario, pleno de vida alrededor, una vegetación exuberante y cada detalle del entorno asi cómo la casa misma, son únicos.

Fuimos atendidos por su dueña en forma esplendida y cariñosa, valoramos cada detalle que hizo inolvidable nuestra estadía. Faltan estrellas para calificar este lugar tan especial.

Recomendable en todos sentidos a quienes buscan una estadia de descanso y armonía, un lugar especial para el amor!

A place of natures tranquility!

  • 5 of 5


We stayed at this cosy chalet for 10 days in jan/feb, and we really enjoyed it. The chalet was very clean and everything worked, and the surrounding nature is beautiful with a little stream just outside to take a dip in, and you can go for cool hikes along the lakeside.

Andrea (the owner) is very friendly and helpful, and she even came with homebaked bread and fruitcake, her dog was a friendly companion too. Thanks for the visit Andrea :)

We would gladly recommend this chalet to other people that likes to live close to the nature :) We would like to come back again next time we visit Floripa.

Chalet in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was the best part of our entire two week trip to Brazil, the chalet. It is on the best side of the island near the lagoa and close to everything. The views from the chalet are spectacular and you are living in a little jungle. The waterfall beneath the chalet is soothing at night and lulls you to sleep. The chalet never gets too hot or too cold it was perfect for the time of year we were there. Andrea is a great host and keeps the chalet very clean and also is green. The chalet is great for a couple and very romantic. This is by far one of the best places I have stayed in during my travels around the world. Comfortable, beautiful and unique to the island. There are a lot of hotels in Floripa but this experience will last you a lifetime.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is great! It's a little place in the trees filled of details that make you feel at home. But the best of it is the surrounding nature: a little waterfall, the wind blowing the trees, the sounds and views. Also, the people you meet. Andrea, the owner, is very friendly; a great person. There, my wife and I had the best vacation of our lives. We can't wait to get back there again!
