  • Description


    It is a rural accommodation meant for those wanting to experience the far rural. We are located 25km away from any little town around the Serra do Mar State Park. Cunha is 20km away, Sao Luiz do Paraitinga is 40km away and Paraty 45km away. There is absolutely no luxury or comfort. The little house accommodates no more than 5 people. It is also possible to camp. Typical little farm kitchen using firewood and toillet outside the house. The area sums up 100.000 sq meters and it's partially a natural forest. Fauna and Flora all around. We do have internet and cell phone signal. We are welcoming people who can help with building, painting, farm maintenance, gardening, hard working, animal treatment, help with guests and doesn't care about mud, snakes, high grass and random weather. It is not easy to reach the place as roads are hard to drive through. Either a 4x4 or a ride from Cunha ou Sao Luiz do Paraitinga will make it! Artisits are welcome too! We are drugs free accommodation.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    the place is really nice if you like farming and being away from the city for awhile. workawayers will have the opportunity to get to know local fauna and flora, local culture and local knowledge. Some families are farming for more than 100 years in the region and workawayers will have the chance to learn from them. We are very close to the 2% of what is left from the Rain Forest Ecosystem. Unique fauna and flora to learn and respect. Regional food, local habits and folklore are also to be experienced.
