Our farm hotel is situated only 80 km east of Rio de Janeiro and 8 km from the beaches of Saquarema.

Our farm hotel is situated in an idyllic landscape. The lake region - Região dos Lagos - Costa do Sol is known all over Brasil for its beautiful landscape and endless sandy beaches as well as for its large lagoons.
Our farm is a former fruit plantation of 10 hectares surrounded by other plantations and farms that breed cows and horses.
The hotel lies at the foot of woody hills, offering beautiful vistas over lush, tropical vegetation - ideal for relaxing holidays and leisure activities. Despite the quiet location there are excellent connections to Rio and to the sea as well as to the small city of Bacaxá 4 km away. Here you can find a variety of shopping possibilities, a weekly market, drugstores, hospital, pharmacies, post office, banks, restaurants and bars.
