    Description

    I have lived in Brazil for more than 20 years and I continue to enjoy this country very much, both the beach and the interior. Books are important companions, besides painting, hiking, animals. Our house in the country is a place where I can return again and again. This place of retreat, far from the traffic and the commotion of civilization, I would like to share with other people.

    In the Mantiqueira Mountains at an altitude of 1700 m,
    between Camanducaia and Gonçalves, the fresh air is guaranteed.
    On clear nights the sky is very star filled.
    The house is located in a region focused on ecotourism, organic agriculture and sustainability.

    There are some trails that leave directly from the house.
    In the wider neighborhood you can meet interesting people.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You will be in a very quiet, secluded place. There is no public transportation. The nearest small town is 7km away and the nearest bigger town is about 25 km away. ( earth road). However, there are people in the neighborhood that you can go with, though you will have to be somewhat felxible. If you need a lot of contact, it is not the right place for you. But if you want to retreat a bit, love nature and animals it is the right place.

    Since we live in a house with solar energy, we have no refrigerator, no washing machine and everyone contributes to be sparing with the available energy.
