Le Gite is a beautiful place to stay if you want to 'get away from it all' for a few days - highly recommended!
I travelled by local bus from nearby Parati and walked up the (steep!) hill to the Gite. The friendly welcome from Olivier, his wife and their dog, Naomi was much appreciated!
I stayed in 'Suite 1' which had a beautiful balcony view into the rainforest, and the sound of the waterfall below added to the natural feel of the setting. The room was fairly small, but clean and nicely decorated.
There isn't much to do here, but that's the main attraction! Long walks in the forest, the pool, the waterfall, the sauna, amazing views... simple but pleasurable activities.
The food at the restaurant wasn't cheap, but the quality and taste more than compensated for the high price. The breakfast included with the room was excellent - lovely fresh produce and generous portions.
From the friendly e-mails when booking the Gite, all throughout my stay, and to Olivier kindly giving me a lift back into Parati at the end of my visit, my stay here was (unfortunately brief) but very enjoyable.
If you're visiting the beautiful town of Parati you should definitely set aside the time for a couple of nights here as a very pleasant contrast. Swap the sea and old architecture for some time in the rainforest!
