We visited the Fazenda with a large group of friends all whom had children.

This Fazenda is an old coffee farm which has been restored beautifully. You can sleep over, or just do a day trip. The main building is full of history and artefacts and there are sofas everywhere to relax in and absorb the atmosphere.

The Fazenda offer a 2 hour tour in the morning starting with a small breakfast and coffee. Whilst the tour is on there is a 'kids club' so the adults can concentrate on the tour. The tour is animated with guides dressing up in traditional clothes, small theatre and a quick dance lesson. After the tour there is a good lunch offering hot and cold food.

There is also a small farm, lake, walks, gardens and horses

We loved it and the kids loved it !

I am writing this review for non-Brazilians, but hotel fazendas are a very Brazilian experience! You stay at a place that is generally remote, you eat all of your meals there, and they provide all of the entertainment. The price is generally high, but everything except drinks is included. This hotel fazenda is located only 2 hours outside of Rio (probably about 3-4 hours from São Paulo - but I'm not sure about that). You'll need a car to get there. We've been to fancy hotel fazendas that have many more activities, but this was a really great blend of history, family friendly activities, and a beautiful place to relax and soak up the atmosphere. It is in an old coffee plantation - and they have restored many parts of the slave quarters and also the "big house" and mill. The buildings are impressive (though the hotel rooms are very basic in furnishings), and there are very nice and comfortable common areas. We went with a large group of 8 families, and there was plenty of... More

“We stayed in Casa Grande 2 - the Getúlio Vargas suite. It's spacious but a little oddly laid out. The view from there is amazing. Some rooms in the hotel are huge and others are more cramped - so check carefully when you reserve. Many rooms will work for families.”
