Fazenda Brazil, São Luiz do Paraitinga, Brazil
Located on the edge of the Atlantic Rainforest on a coffee farm high in the coastal mountains, Fazenda Brazil brings together the history, culture, and beauty of the country in one small hotel. The main house is a traditional 1850′s colonial estate, while guests stay in 5 small villas around the property for a more exclusive experience. Each villa has its own aesthetic and charm.
As Fazenda Brazil is a working farm (Fazenda refers to the coffee plantations that spread across the interior of Brazil in the second half of the 19th century), meals are a large part of guest experience. The hotel prepares traditional meals from organic produce grown right in the backyard. You can enjoy fresh milk, cheese, and fruit pies for breakfast while the evening brings organic caipirinha – the national drink of Brazil – before dinner.
Guests have the choice between staying in a double/twin room or suite in the main building, or in one of 5 private villas on the property. See Notes in Info/Rates section for specific details.
There is no TV, cell phone service, or internet access at Fazenda Brazil, ensuring total tranquility. No wonder the hotel is often used as a residency setting for international artists! However, the area offers plenty of activites and no 2 days are alike at Fazenda Brazil. Choose from hiking, rafting, horse back riding, fishing, swimming, or just relaxing on the farm.
