Nestled amongst rolling hills between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Fazenda Catuçaba is the perfect rural hideaway. The historical town of São Luiz do Paraitinga is just 30 minutes away, it makes the perfect ‘getaway from it all’ property and fits in perfectly on a holiday in Brazil mixing cities and beach.

Catuçaba functions today as an organic farm and 450 hectare coffee plantation (fazenda means farm in Portuguese). Situated close to the Mata Atlantica rainforest, a UNESCO world heritage site and a beautiful ecosystem, this farm has an idyllic area surrounding it. The local area has been incorporated into the design and décor of the fazenda at every opportunity. The house was originally built in 1850, but today’s design dates back to the 1940’s and uses local, precious wood.

The property has 10 double ensuite rooms or 5 villas that can be hired. The focus is very much on simple elegance and total peace and harmony and as such there is no internet access, no mobile signal and no TV’s to be found in any room. However, the finishing touches are what make this hotel so special. There are many works of art, produced by the various artists in residence who regularly come to stay at the fazenda for peace and inspiration.

The 10 ensuite classic rooms are equipped with king size beds, Egyptian cotton bed linen, black stone baths and fireplaces. If more privacy is required, there are various options of villas ranging from the ‘master’, through rustic to ‘designer’. Many are original buildings from the 1800s, some facing the lake which is suitable for swimming in, or with waterfalls nearby.

The hotel is set up to cater to all tastes, whether you want to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity or you are looking for something more adventurous. The many different activities in the area such as trekking, horse riding, rafting and bird watching mean you will never be short of things to do. What better way to relax than with a cocktail in hand, watching the sun set over the rolling hills?

Fazenda Catucaba is perfect for couples on honeymoon or families looking to get away from it all whilst on holiday in Brazil.
