In the heart of Brazil’s nature and culture, Fazenda Catucaba is a peaceful 450-hectare old coffee farm in the mountains, close to the sea, bordering a Unesco natural reserve. More than a luxury hotel it is a family home, genuine, simple, elegant and exclusive with great tasty healthy food from our organic farm!

There are very few places in the world that I have stayed and relaxed and unwound without self doubt and continuous judgement; I am spoilt for choice and I am always searching. Fazenda Catuçaba is one such place, run by the enigmatic and far sighted generous Emanuel and his beautiful, sharp and attentive partner Bianca. This corner of the world offers a connection to nature without pretence or unnecessary modern so called "essentials". Eating home grown food, drinking delicious wine, swimming in a murky cool lake watching dragon flies mating, leaping off a long well sprung diving board or riding kindly horses guided by the gorgeous Juliana, this beautiful verdant haven of relaxation is where you ought to go if you desire peace and quiet.Turn off your phone.Leave your laptop at home. Join in, kick back, make new friends and fantasise about all the things you would really like to do with your life. Dont hesitate ... go.

Organic and sustainable concept with great food from own farm, attentive and great staff. Beautiful landscape and space for horse rides and walks. In today's hectic and fast world it was good to get away from mobil phone signal and internet. 3 nights there was a recharge for body and soul. Workshop with artist was great for the kids.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast. This place is an absolute gem for all those who want to truly slow down, deeply connect with nature and themselves... Slowing down at fazenda Catuçaba for me really meant deepening my connection to the animals on the land: dogs, peacocks, horses, ducks, eagles, and and and... Living in harmony with the land in a design and boutique hotel environment is a truly unique understanding of permaculture and I hope it gains many followers - Manu and his family are refreshingly real hosts with deep ties to the local community and the land.

We stayed here with a group from Backroads for 2 nights. This place was lovely; the décor, the food, the staff. Went for a gorgeous hike, followed by a horseback ride, then lounged in the hammocks. I could have stayed much longer.

Arriving at this Fazenda is no easy feat, but once you get there you are transported. The grounds, the farmhouse and rooms are absolutely stunning.The room had a large, extremely comfortable bed with a big bathroom and a small desk. It was the perfect oasis after a long day of hiking. Keep in mind there is no air-conditioning so it was a bit hot durning the day. The food was outstanding, every single meal. I am a vegetarian and had more then enough at each meal. Each night and morning we sat at the most beautifully set tables- everything looked out of a magazine. Our first night we had wine on the terrance with a fire and a lovely man playing guitar- it was magical. I was here with a group, which made all the planning very easy for me. I could see that it would be hard to get here (its remote and at the end of a very bumpy road). If you are looking to get away from the busy city and stay at a truly beautiful location in Brazil-look no further. This place is something very special.
