The small state of Alagoas boasts arguably the most pristine coastline of all Brazil, with endless miles of empty beaches. Picturesque drives north of the state capital, the only signs of civilisation are sleepy fishing villages. The sea here is warm and crystal clear and the reefs form many natural swimming pools of turquoise for you to enjoy as the tide goes out. Alternatively, you can simply lrelax with a drink on the paradisiacal beach just a few yards away from your private villa. This is where you can truly kick back, relax and enjoy the easy-going, Brazilian pace of life
The luxury boutique hotel contains only nine villas spaced out in landscaped gardens, you stay in our favourite, just a few paces from the beach with views from the breezy veranda right out to sea. When it comes to getting away from it all on an deserted Brazilian beach whilst enjoying modern comforts then this hotel is the dream location. For a rustic beach villa it is rather well equipped with DVD player, surround sound, Jacuzzi and high cotton count linen on your king size bed. The restaurant is excellent and breakfast is a special treat. Nothing is too much for the friendly staff here who will deliver meals to your room and refreshing drinks to your chosen spot on the beach.
Next, you move inland to the beautiful Brazilian interior and the state of Minas Gerais. Your expansive hacienda is set in an incredible Brazilian landscape of mountains, waterfalls and forests for you to explore and has an endless list of activities for you to partake in, including fly-fishing, horse riding, mountaineering, hiking and canoeing. It is an all-inclusive arrangement (though don’t let that term throw you off) the few lucky guests receive three delicious home cooked meals every day and are free to take from the kitchen & larder as they please, all food and drink including beer and spirits are included in the rate. This is getting away from it all par excellence!
The Fazenda or farmhouse has a grand dining room, a library to unwind in and tables for cards after dinner. The 5 bedroom suites are 500 sq. Ft upwards and have large, comfortable beds, linen sheets, slate and marble bathrooms from the region and are individually decorated, each with its own unique, secluded outdoor area. A focal point to the property is the covered outdoor sitting room, with an array of tropical plants and water features, that leads on to a vast slate lined swimming pool fed with running spring water. Beneath is a private underground cinema and beyond is a croquet lawn set in a beautiful ten-acre garden full of mature fruit and nut trees, whilst set to the side of the Fazenda are the large and well equipped stables, home to local Criollo horses.
A superb breakfast is presented on the large veranda each morning, from which you watch parakeets fluttering around the orange trees that produced the juice you are drinking. The estate produces its own organic food, estate-bottled honey, sugar, jams, hot pepper sauce etc. Lunch can be enjoyed relaxing by the pool; however, you may prefer to pick a secluded spot on the estate (perhaps a tranquil waterfall or stream) for a picnic; appearing by horseback at the time you specify, staff will lay out an abundant spread of roast meats, breads, fresh salads, ice cold drinks and silver utensils for you to enjoy at your leisure. Dinner is served in the dining room and is always a merry occasion, whole sizzling roasts are standard fare, showing the owner’s passion for excellence in this most idyllic and remote location.
