Fazenda Catuçaba is a country getaway situated on a remote coffee plantation surrounded by hills, rivers, mountains and lakes for hiking, birding, horseback riding, fishing, canoeing and swimming. The lack of televisions and Internet access makes it a truly idyllic retreat. There is an operational organic farm on site which yields produce such as coffee, fruits, vegetables, cheeses and meat, all of which are served in the restaurant.
For accommodation there are various rooms, suites and villas. The deluxe rooms and suites are housed in modern buildings and come with Egyptian linen, fireplaces, en-suite black-stone bathtubs, and seating areas. Deluxe villas have living rooms, two bedrooms and private terraces. Rustic villas are basic converted farmhouses with comfortable mattresses and bedding, some with electricity and some without.
Communal areas include living rooms and a library in the main farmhouse building. Staff can arrange any of the numerous outdoor activities on offer in the surrounding area, from rainforest walks to paragliding to white water rafting, as well as tours to the nearby villages.

The farm is located in the hills about ten miles away from the colonial mountain town of São Luiz do Paraitinga, and about a two-hour drive from São Paulo. Rio de Janeiro is about four hours away. The nearest airport is Taubaté, which is 40 miles away.
Food & Beverage
The farm restaurant serves a daily complimentary buffet breakfast as well as traditional lunch and dinner offerings made from the farm's own organic produce, including fruit pies, cheeses, meat dishes, freshly baked bread, and duck stuffed with manioc. Cocktails such as caïpirinhas with cachaça made from the farm's sugar cane are available in the evenings.
How To Get There
Heading out of São Paulo, take SP-070 and drive for eighty-five miles until you get to Taubaté. Then take the exit to SP-060 and head east on this road through the town until you see signs for the exit to SP-125. Take the exit and at the roundabout, take the second exit. Drive along the SP-125 for about thirty miles until you get to a split in the road. Take the eastern split labelled Estr. Mun. SP-125-Catuçaba, rather than the southern one. Drive for just over eleven miles until you reach the farm.
