A delightful pousada and working coffee plantation set in stunning countryside with far reaching views to the blue mountains. Accommodation is in single story, 4 roomed bungalows, each room with its own entrance, private shower/WC and fridge. Views from the bungalow look out across the valley and can be enjoyed while relaxing on the terrace from the hammock provided.
An excellent breakfast is included and is taken overlooking the natural spring -water pool. Full board is available if required and the pousada provides home-cooked local food all organically grown on the farm usually a robust lunch and soup in the evening. However, the local village of Sant Antoni da Leche is only 10 minutes drive away and there is an excellent restaurant there which serves traditional Mineras food.
The owners are keen to show guests round the farm and visitors can either take a leisurely stroll or horse-back ride round the estate and also see the coffee roasting operation.
I found this pousada via Alison McGowan's excellent website www.hiddenpousadasbrazil.com without which I would have been lost. Her advice has been invaluable on this trip.
