My husband chooses this place for our honeymoon. It was a total surprise and an enormous delight for me. I wish we can be there back soon!!! We totally loved this place.
We took a plane from Brasilia to Rio, and then we came by car to Lima Duarte. From there we got some dirt roads so I think off roads could do better. Anyway, it's real a short way. You enter the complex crossing a low water. We were welcomed with juices and by a formidably nice hostests.
The main building is a house in the style of the classical farmhouses of Brazil. There were a chill in the air, so the fireplace was on. Everyone wearing horse boots (yuppi!). Our room, the last one of the house, was huge, with an extremely beautifull bathtub in the center of the room and very large accommodations, the best pillows, linens, shampoos and etc. I can say for sure that in this place everything is thought twice to make you feel good and welcome. They offer robes, warm up your bed while you're gone with small sacks of seeds, put whine in your room in the night. Everything. Just to be perfect.
The food is marvelous too. A lot of seasonal fruit, all from the regional farmers and a lot of the food is from even the farm itself. The breakfast is amazing as the lunch, but, the supper is to eat on your knees! In one of the days, the even took us to a full dinner near a waterfall!
There's a lot to do. Horse riding, Walks, visiting, observe the wildlife, visit waterfalls, swim, massage, alternative therapy and a very nice ofuro and sauna, from where you can see the stars. And also the park, that you can't miss...
I can say I highly recommend this romantic place to couples and people that want to know more about brazilian nature. It's a unique experience.
