Just an unforgettable experience !
The farm is simply a unique place not only by the beautiful landscape but also for the host you can meet !
The breakfast and the lunch are cook by Virginie (it's was so good...). They gave us food for diner that you could prepare in the open kitchen ! ( if you want extra you can pick banana, star food, avocados, coconut... directly from the trees). Basically, we worked the morning and we had the afternoon completly free. You can go in Bacaxa, Saquarema pretty easily by bus.
Thank you so much for everything, I highly recommend this place !
(See you soon!)

Really nice girls outside of the civilization (even thought you easily get to the next city with the bus).

We basically worked in the morning, before the heat, and have the afternoon totally free. We had to maintain the place, a bit of gardening and mostly building and restore. But I guess it depends on the season.
The food is homemade and cooked with love. Plus, we could pick what is in the sitio (like bananas or coconuts).

You can go fearless. Thanx! :)

Experiência incrível, Cati-Porã é cheio de amor, Virgine e Lucianas são pessoas incríveis, cheias de histoórias e conhecimentos para compartilhar. O trabalho é pesado, mas gratificante ver o que somos capazes de aprender, fazer e contruir com as próprias mãos.
