We are a sitio (farm) located in the wild near the town of Glorinha. We've been here for 13 years and we had a lot of people and a lot of changes, but always focusing on preserving the nature and tranquility of people around us. The farm doesn't actually fall into the definition of a farm, it is more of a natural reserve. We have a beautiful pousada (rural hotel) , a camping site with all commodities, beautiful trails to explore, points to experience beautiful sunsets and sunrises, twenty hectares of forest and beautiful cachoeras (waterfalls).
About what we do --- We host people all over the year and make seasonal events which include yoga retreats, language immersions, bird sightings, trails into the forest, kids camps and we make events during traditional holidays (new years, christmas, etc) with a non-traditional and new approach.
