For the traveller or family looking for a unique Brazilian experience – for total relaxation, great walking and riding in spectacular surroundings, or a small private venue – Fazenda Catuçaba offers all this with the benefits of amazing, home grown food, including their own coffee and cachaça. Nothing here – no TV or internet – disturbs nature’s peace..

Fazenda Catuçaba is situated within a rural location amongst the rolling hills. The location is around half an hour from the historic town of São Luiz do Paraitinga, an hour and a half away from Picinguaba and two and a half hours from São Paulo. “We believe in a seamless integration with nature and the natural environment, in the genuinely transformative power of community living, and in the importance of coexistence between nature and modern society.” – Fazenda Catuçaba

The property’s 450 hectares (1,100 acres) feature an operational organic farm, rivers, lakes and expansive views from the mountaintops. The main house, the 1850s casarão, is the hotel’s centre piece and contains one of the ‘classic’ rooms. The property also includes a further seven classic rooms and two suites which are avalible within three hill-top houses. There are also two casas de campo/traditional farmhouses located away from the main house. The Casa da Cachoeira is located 100m fromw the farm next o a waterfall and has two rooms and a large terrace. The Casa do Lago was built in the 1840’s and refurbished to modern standards whilst preserving its old transitional style opposite a large lake and again further away from the farm and therefore more private.
