Eco-accomodation in a natural park, Sítio Folha d´Água: 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. Perfect place for people interested in surfing. 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.

Important observation for whomsoever wishes to stay at the Sítio: we have a gentle and playful group of dogs “of undefined breed” and dogs trained for therapy, who are a part of this natural paradise. At times they bark, at times they sing serenades, at times they love nothing more than an exchange of affectionate greetings. Thus, the guest must like dogs and be able to appreciate their possible company.

The sounds of nature are enchanting: the wind in the treetops, the birds, the various animals from the environmental preservation area, occasional cicada concerts or the sudden surprise of an owl singing at night.

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.


Organic breakfast, airport transfers, guided tours to Salvador or the beaches, laundry, participation in healing and creative workshops and therapeutic sessions on our healing space, as Reiki, therapeutic massages and hot stones, chromotherapie, acupuncture, multidimensional cellular therapy, etc.

About this location

The State of Bahia 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 village 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. In Arembepe it is possible to rent bikes or rent-a-car.

It is very easy to go to Salvador by bus or by car. 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). But you have to take care, because over the entire coast of northeast region of Brazil, including Bahia, there can be dangerous currents (riptides). Ask for further information, where to swim. 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.

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!
