Hi, we are Katharina, Luciano and our 7 year old son Nilo- a german-brazilian family. We built the guest house in a paradisiacal environment in Paraty.
It is an eco guesthouse and a place of nature, plantation, arts, music and meetings. Characterized by a peaceful, artistic and familiar atmosphere. The location consists of three independent and private chalets for renting. We receive lots of guest from all over the world.
At the moment we are finishing the construcion of the “house of arts” with hall for workshops (dancing, music and arts).
We are artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, social and cultural workers, gardeners, nature lovers, writers, creative and adventurous people dedicated to living an active and free live close to nature and arts. We are a friendly, fun, open minded, responsible and confident family happy to share our piece of paradise with you!!

Normally we would have lunch together with the volunteers. Breakfast and dinner the volunteers prepare by themselves. We offer you all the food for preperation!
