Living in São Paulo, or even staying for a while, can leave you with the impression that city life is the only type of life there is. So it's wonderful to discover that somewhere as peaceful, pastoral and utterly relaxing as Pousada Luz e Paz exists just a short drive out of the city. As another reviewer has pointed out, it really does feel like a little piece of heaven as you trundle your way down ever decreasing roads, onto dirt tracks and finally climb up the steep drive towards this perfectly appointed little Shangri-La. Fátima runs the joint, cooking excellent food, conducting some of the meditation classes and even designing the place - and you'll find her a great and accommodating hostess with an excellent command of English (she used to teach it). The views are amazing, the hammocks inviting, the treatments reasonably priced (we only had time for one - the hot tub - which was the equal of anything in SP) and the airy central atrium amply stocked with board games and books for those long, lazy afternoons. We arrived with two out of the four of our family ill, but Fátima and her team soon sorted us out - by the time we had to head back to the city, we felt totally refreshed with our only complaint being that our time there had gone too fast.
NB Children's activities only gets 3 stars because it's not really a children's resort. However, our family was made to feel really welcome and not at all anxious about letting the kids explore and make a little noise.

Massages, and ofuro bathing are good options to help you relax in a dazzling landscape, surrounded by singing birds and soft music.
