The Experience

No SitiOm vivemos em comunidade e temos como missão preservar a Mata Atlântica por meio da reconexão do ser humano com a natureza, da convivência em comunidade e da economia cooperativa, formando uma sociedade equânime, ecológica e pacífica. Nossa sede é um Casarão Colonial de 1790 e estamos cercados pela Mata Atlântica. A vida aqui é simples, um convite à reconexão com os ciclos naturais e a convivência harmoniosa uns com os outros.

There's a really welcoming atmosphere at Sitcom, and its a very nice place to spend a while! I was treated very well by Bel, Leo and Caue. I don't speak Portuguese, which made it a bit more difficult at times, but Isabel speaks English, and I could speak Spanish to Caue who speaks 'Porteñol'!. The food's very tasty and the yoga classes are really great.
Thank you very much for having me!
