You will be accommodated in our home at the original plantation house. It is a large and comfortable house built in the early 1940s with bricks and roof tiles handmade with local clay. It has a stone foundation, handmade windows and tongue and groove wooden floors. Its thick masonry walls, wide veranda and high ceilings help to keep the house comfortably cool. This Brazilian colonial style house with a wrap around veranda is set up high and overlooks pastures and farm buildings.
We take our meal preparation very seriously. All our meals are prepared right here in our kitchen and served family style in our dinng room. Most of our breakfast foods are made right here on the farm: homemade breads and rolls, jams, honey, yogurt, cheese, milk, fresh eggs and of course our own coffee, roasted and brewed on the farm. We have no set time for breakfast… you may wander in anytime between 7:00 AM and lunch. Brazilians still eat their largest and most elaborate meal at this time of the day. We always serve rice and beans, the Brazilian staple, well seasoned with onions and garlic and olive oil. To accompany them, we have a meat dish, beef, roast pork or lamb or Tilapia from our ponds. We serve cooked vegetables and yucca (manioc) from our organic garden or buy from local growers and always have a green salad. You will have a chance to try feijoada (Brazil’s famous black bean stew). We serve an elaborate Churrasco ( the Brazilian barbeque which is now becoming famous in most large cities around the world) with lots of different meats and fried manioc. We make a spicy Tilapia moqueca in a clay pot, the recipe borrowed from Brazil’s northeast. MEETINGS… Possible upon request
We have a swimming pool off the side porch, a billard table, a ping pong table and television (DirecTV). Fishing is a popular pastime as well. Kayaks and Boats are also available. Everybody visits our waterfall after a half mile hike in the forest and the most adventurous even go under.
Kids Love it Here. They experience the natural world in a natural way. The chickens and turkeys lay eggs. Eggs hatch! Milk comes from a cow or a goat not a from a jug. They can even help milk the cows. Baby lambs or goats are always around and often drink from bottles. We have ponies to ride, small friendly donkeys too, and a pony cart. Older kids can ride the big horses if they like and go kayaking in the river, exploring in the woods, and fishing in the ponds. Share a week here with your kids. It’s a vacation they will always remember.
In the North Pioneer Region of ParanÃ¡, on the edge of the Mata Atlantica.
