Client comments and reviews
The fazenda was a great place to end and the staff could not have made us more welcome. We only had two nights but would have loved an extra one, giving us more time to walk up into the hills and to the waterfall. - JH (June 2013)
We had a lovely relaxing stay here, we rode to the highest point of the farm and the views were just magnificent. The food is delicious and the staff very friendly. Our little boy enjoyed it all especially sitting on the tractors and chasing the goats. - RR (May 2012)
