Had a wonderful weekend at the Fazenda. Beautiful surroundings. Really enjoyed the birds. One improvement would have been if the library had stocked a bird identification book as coming from the UK I was unable to identify any! The 'dawn chorus' was worth waking up at 5 am for. The staff were very kind and helpful. An understanding of Portuguese... More

Catuçaba is where you go if you want disconnect from the bustle of São Paulo (there is no TV or wifi) and connect with nature. The rooms are super comfortable (from the bed linen to the bed and bathrooms), the organic food (sourced from the farm) a delight and the atmosphere of the fazenda is magical. The main house dates...

Catuçaba farm is much more than a hotel, is a philosophy in action. The original colonial house with imperial palm trees, limonge porcelain, soft lightning, impecable decoration, sweet welcoming service, charming rooms, flufly beds and soft sheets, organic food, sunset with whool blankets, site specific pieces of land art, pic nics by the lake... Everything is absolutely warm and ellegant.... More

I didn't really understand the concept of the hotel when I booked the trip. It is counter intuitive to understand that "luxury is simplicity" (as they repeatedly state in their web site) when you are paying the equivalent of a nice 5 star Manhattan hotel to go to a farm in the interior of São Paulo. The lunch menu, which... More

I was in desperate need of the country, rest and a huge desire to horseback ride. This trip to Catuçaba delivered this and so much more. It came full of surprises! From full moon night horseback riding to sunset watching from the top of the highest hills. We arrived by horse and there prepared for us were blankets, pillows wine... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at the hotel! The place is spectacular, especially if you have little kids. Our 20 months old daughter loved the animals on the farm and the big space to run. She didnt get bored a sec! The staff is amazingly friendly and the main house absolutely beautiful. Breakfast was excellent, lunch and dinner were good.... More

The intention of the trip was to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and the place was perfect. Pros: 1) very beautiful area, 2) excellent service, 3) amazing food, specially the barbecue on Saturday night (and you can eat as much as you want), 4) several options for activities (go to the sunset by horse, it's really nice... Very beautiful and you... More

Wonderful experience. Everything was perfect, the room was a peaceful retreat, food was great and very healthy, done with the crops of the place, activities were great...

The area and landscape is indeed incredible, with majestic views of Vale do Paraiba. Still, from the moment we set foot on the property, I felt there was something that did not quite match the internet descriptions, even though I was not then yet able to point out what was it exactly that made me feel immediately uncomfortable. I could... More

I have travelled to Brazil a number of times on business, but this was the first time my wife and 7 year old son joined. We splurged on the "real Brazil" package with 4 days at Picinguaba and then 2 at Fazenda Catacuba. Although a bit pricey, both were spectacular - great food, friendly helpful people, lots to do, particulary... More
