The South East Brazil region

The Atlantic Forest, in Minas Gerais. Well known for the delicious food, and spring water, not forgetting the highest quality air .


Set in the valleys of the Serra Mantiqueira"s. The name Mantiqueira derives from a Tupi word meaning "mountains that cry", denoting the large number of springs and streams found there.

The name shows the range's great importance as a source of drinking water, and the waters supply a great number of important cities in the southeast of Brazil.

234km from Rio De Janeiro, 290km from Sao Paulo, 418km from Belo Horizonte.

A 30min drive to Pico das Agulhas Negras is the 6th highest mountain in Brazil, standing at 2,791.55 mts above sea level, making it the 2nd highest peak of Brazilian Highland.

The resort is 9km from the town of Itamonte, (4km off road) and sits by Rio Capivari, with many small waterfalls. The area is full of wildlife, especially birds.

"Beautiful place of retreat"

I stayed for one week at the Arte Villa in both the main house and at Chalet Luz. I got some of the best sleep of my trip here. The property sits above a river so at night I was lulled to sleep by the flowing water and nature outside. This is a peaceful place of retreat that has been lovingly constructed by owners Claire and Satjan. I came on my own but it would be an excellent choice for groups and families as the main house is spacious and there's a new barn onsite for yoga, workshops, etc. Most of my meals were foraged from the organic garden. There is also beautiful nature to explore in this area. I went hiking one day in the national park which is about an hour away. The hosts found a local guide who picked me up and dropped me off at Arte Villa. I highly recommend doing this during your stay.
