Our cottage is situated in the highlands on a beautiful smallholding, surrounded by Atlantic rainforest and our own small banana and shadow coffee plantations, on the side of a little green valley. Two bedrooms, one open kitchen with dining room, one bathroom and a terrace with place for three hammocks. Some times the small monkeys make visits to the fruit trees around the house. We have avocado, jackfruit, lemon, oranges and others. Adjoined to the cottage, there's another part of the house with more five beds, a bathroom and two charming half rounded rooms, with many windows, plaesant for studies and relaxing. This is rented aside from the cottage. From the terrace is a view over the valley. Four friendly neighbours on 200-400 meters of distance, two peasant families and two academics. Ten minutes walk from a waterfall, 20 min from the village and the bus, and 30 min from the Ecolodge Sempre Verde, where you can rent horses or other eco-tourism services. The cottage is perfect for writers, photographers, poets, artists, painters, families, meditation, bird-watching, walking, jogging, handicraft. There is an other building close to the house, semi-opened, suited for activities as work-shops, training, dancing, yoga etc.The cottage has solar energy and a windmill that pumps water. There is a garden where you can plant vegetables. Two cats and a dog take care outdoors. Our very nice employee works in the plantations some hours per day, and can help you with almost anything you need. You can rent the cottage for several months or just weeks.
