Happy Guests

We loved our time at the house once again. Harry, Adriana and Luis were incredibly helpful during our time there and really helped to make it a very relaxing break!
Your house and the location are lovely and we all enjoyed our stay. You are very lucky to have such people as Harry, Adriana and Luis helping you, as they sure do look after your guests very well.
We had a wonderful time. Thank you! What an amazing place. Adriana and Harry were brilliant and we didn’t want to leave. Thanks for all your help in the lead up to our holiday and for letting us share your wonderful house.
From the moment we were met by Harry we loved the house and it was perfect for a few days relaxation. Waking up and opening the shutters to that view is paradise and then you realise the house is all yours – loved it!

Historic Center

Designated a National Heritage Site in 1966 and UNESCO nominated, Paraty’s pedestrianised historic centre is easily explored on foot. The 18th Century buildings – built during Brazil’s gold rush – range from simple fishermen’s cottages to baroque churches, and the wonderful backdrop of rugged, jungle-clad mountains makes simply wandering around a real pleasure. Most shops and galleries in the historic center stay open until well after dark, when restaurants fill with the sound of live music and sidewalk tables and chairs are hotly contested on balmy evenings.


Wild Food Walks

Explore the Atlantic Rainforest on this fascinating Wild Food Walk with leading Brazilian forager, Jorge Ferreira.  A passionate mushroom hunter and experienced collector of wild plants, Jorge will share with you some of his vast knowledge of amazing local plants – their scientific and popular names, their nutritional qualities and medicinal characteristics and where you are likely to find them. After you meet the guides, there is a short bus journey (20 minutes) up into the rainforest covered mountains behind Paraty. The wild food walk takes place on the Gold Trail, the paved road built by African slaves in the 18th century to bring gold out of the Brazilian interior and onto ships bound for Portugal.


Yoga with Oseias

Just as the knowledge of Yoga is vast and deep, so are its benefits.

The practice of Yoga benefits the body, mind and spirit. While some of these benefits can be expressed in words, others are beyond description and can only be experienced.

Oseias ‘Rama Shankar’ is young teacher of Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga formed at Sri Sri School of Yoga in India and he got his knowledge by his master HH Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, an spiritual and humanitarian leader , founder of Art of Living foundation.
