Great check-in experience
100% of recent guests gave the check-in process a 5-star rating.
A charmingly rustic 5 bedroom country home in the heart of the Atlantic Rainforest, natural habitat for some 300 species, a great variety of birds and fauna, located inside the "Três Picos" state park, less than 3 hours from Rio de Janeiro.
The perfect place to get away from it all, fully equipped for your comfort - complete kitchen, fireplace, barbecue, small pool and we include bed linen and towels. There is also a river - crystal clear waters - crossing the property where you can have a dip!

The space
A charmingly rustic 5 bedroom country home in the heart of the Atlantic Rain Forest, natural habitat for some 300 orchid species, and a great variety of birds and fauna, located inside the "Três Picos" state park, itself one of the last primeval rain forest covered areas in the state of Rio de Janeiro.

Just over an hour's drive (traffic permitting) from Rio's international airport takes us to the edge of the park where the road climbs for half an hour to an altitude of 1000 meters and there we travel through the forest for another 40 minutes over a dirt road to A Estalagem (The Lodge), a 3 acre river front property with a fully equipped professional kitchen, large living room with a fireplace, library and gaming room and 5 bedrooms, either en suite or shared bathrooms. We have our own spice patch, local organic vegetables and freshwater stream. If you are a bird watcher, hiker, nature walker, want to swim in the rivers, or just want to read books, listen to music and relax, this is the place!

Being the perfect getaway, there is no mobile telephone coverage but we do have a landline. There is satellite internet installed but its use is limited and not 100% reliable.

We include fresh linen and towels and full use of the kitchen facilities, as well as an optional house keeper for daily cleaning.

Other things to note
As permanent inhabitants at the property we have Zé, the cat, and several chickens and roosters. All happy and roaming free :) For this reason, we don't accept other pets.
