Eco-accomodation in a natural park: Hidden away in the Environmental Conservation Area of Rio Capivara, close to the charming little beach town of Arembepe, Sítio Folha d'Água is a natural sanctuary perfect for those seeking inner peace and wellness. The tranquil environment lends itself to the process of healing and well-being. Visitors will also have the unique opportunity to observe the behavior and if it would please you, interact with a very friendly and funny dog-pack. Visitors should like dogs and not be afraid of them.

The Sítio offers the rental of two little ecological earth lodges (single room with loft bed and private bathroom), constructed in a traditional native indian style with thatched roofs, but equipped with modern facilities and internet access, making it suitable for those seeking a rustic retreat or wishing to engage in creative pursuits such as taking a sabbatical, writing or painting. Also, guests can choose to stay in a private chalet with a verandah in the midst of nature.

Additional paid options available:

Organic breakfast, airport transfers, guided tours to Salvador or the beaches, laundry, participation in healing sessions and creative workshops.

Or you can simply rest, reflect and meditate, be alone or in a group. The Sítio facilitates connections with nature, making it also suitable for groups and organizations to arrange workshops, symposiums, research projects and meditation retreats.

The North East Brazil region

Bahia is one of the most interesting and historically rich states in Brazil, with a very unique culture influenced by African traditions, and is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and natural landscapes in the world.


The surroundings include the charming fishing town of Arembepe, which has an historical background and beaches offering bathing and surfing as well as other attractions, and the more rural surroundings in which the property is situated (a very small rural community with a small supermaket for basic provisions and some little stores only 500 meters away, lots of nice greenery, riverside vegetation, wild birds, monkeys, etc.).

We can arrange tours with a licensed tour guide to the historic city of Salvador da Bahia, as well as many places of interest further up the coast such as Praia do Forte, Imbassai, Mangue Seco. If you prefer, it is also possible to make these journeys by a rented car or by bus.

The city of Salvador boasts museums, shops, parks, movie theaters, concert halls, open air concerts and performances, etc. If you want to get to know the city of Salvador, this is absolutely possible while you are staying at the Sítio, because it is easy to make a day-trip.

Around Arembepe itself, however, the most popular entertainment is going to the beach (including surfing). There also are some groups active: music, women´s samba-group, capoeira, etc. Excursions can be arranged at a reasonable cost, such as kayaking on the Capivara River, which meanders through the grasslands of the Rio Capivara Environmental Preservation Area, and deep-sea fishing, etc.

Further afield are a number of other interesting beaches, rivers, and natural reserves, which can be accessed from the Sitio. Also, we do have partnerships with several other social and environmental projects in the area, which you are welcome to visit.

"A natural environment that's perfect for unwinding."

During our stay, Sitio Folha d'Agua felt like our magical home away from home. As city dwellers, my partner and I were yearning to reconnect with nature and feel more balanced. Our time at the … More

"Lovely Rustic Space in a Peaceful Natural Reserve"

I had a lovely stay at Sitio Folha da Agua. It is located on a natural reserve, so there are all kinds of animals about---tiny adorable monkeys swinging from the trees, great big frogs, hundreds of ty… More

Dear Gavi, Thank you so much for your review! We appreciate you taking the time to review as well as your feedback. One note re: our friendly pack of dogs, we would like to make it clear that the dogs live and play in a separate, private area. If guests are interested, they're welcome to observe the behavior of the dogs as well as interact with them. However, this is only if the guests wish to spend time / interact with the dogs (as you were invited to the private area to do so). We wish you the best and hope you will visit again in the future!
