You can find the oasis of the villa tucked away in the midst of an abundant private Atlantic rainforest reserve, with natural pools and waterfalls only a short walk away. Yet, the property is perfectly placed to explore the picturesque beaches of the Litoral Norte that stretch between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Great surf beaches are within a few minutes and the beautiful colonial port of Paraty is about a 50 minute drive.

While the villa is without wonderfully located for exploring this stunning section of the Brazilian coast, guests can be forgiven for being struck down by fits of inactivity and suffer from a lack of motivation to actually leave the property. It’s elevated position in the foothills of the Serra do Mar National Park mean that gentle breezes sweep through the house and its verandas, tugging gently at the hammocks. The large pool is surrounded by sentinel Royal Palms and the resulting calm and peace make days ripe for a few caipirinhas and long lunch in the shade.

This majestic, colonial-style house offers ample space to comfortably host up to 10 guests. Its four large bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and provide breath-taking views of the gardens and verandas of the Fazenda. A large living room offers generous couch space and high-quality powered speakers. Here, guests can unwind, choosing from an abundant selection of books, or play table games antique foosball with family and friends.

As with all large homes, the well-stocked kitchen is a focal point and meals are a vital part of any stay. Guides to local markets, the best places to source fish and seafood and organic food providers are offered to guests. Bountiful land surrounding the villa reaps homegrown organic fruit and vegetables, which are happily shared with guests.

There is a vast pool space and veranda, with a backdrop of verdant tropical rainforest and peppered with couches and hammocks. With a barbeque provided, guests can convivially relax together and dine al-fresco. When the evening is turning to night, the fire-pit draws everyone together.

To soothe your soul, the property’s lush grounds include several trails and remarkably close access to celestial natural pools and waterfalls. In the clean, fresh forest air, guests can hike, cool off, bird watch and meditate, whilst taking in the untouched natural surroundings.

Getting to the beaches of the Litoral Norte and out towards Paraty is easy thanks to the villa’s great location. Just 10 minutes by car and you reach the heart of Ubatuba, famed for its natural beauty, surfing, and fish restaurants. A coastal highway nearby to the house gives quick access to 84 beaches that can be sampled on day trips and we can help you with tips on where to eat, drink, chartering a boat for the day or hiring a guide.

Daily maid service and pool and garden maintenance are taken care of by the couple who live on the property and a very good local cook can be contracted as required.
