Why Alexandre W. Reboucas chose Central São Paulo State

Mountaintop location (altitude 4,500 ft) with spectacular sunrise-to-sunset views plus rolling hills, forests and ponds. Over a mile of “environmental” rachao driveway has been constructed, drainage is excellent, water is abundant (we just completed a new artesian well which is rated at 600gph of pure water), the sewage system works well, plus we have good wifi and steady mains electricity. When the owners and guests are not in residence, the property is regularly rented for weekends and holidays to an upmarket clientele, which pays for staff and upkeep. Recently a Toyota commercial was filmed on the property. It has also been a cover story in two national lifestyle magazines. Apart from being strategically located between SP and Rio, the property is only 25 miles from the world-class tropical beaches of Paraty, which also has excellent shops, restaurants and nightlife. About four miles of the connecting road is currently, well, bumpy, but within a year or two it will be paved. Closer by, there are perhaps four good restaurants in and around Cunha, the nearest town, which is about 10 miles away. It has a hospital, pharmacies and shops that are rather basic but it is a charming place in a thriving, secure area dominated by agriculture and artisanal ceramics. As for climate, there is abundant sunshine all year round with an average of about 80F and low humidity on summer days and 65F on summer nights; 65 to 70F and low humidity on winter days and 30F to 50F on winter nights — so lots of opportunities to use the property's NINE fireplaces and wood stoves!The manager, Assis, is truly superb and will likely want to continue. There is a nice, competent maid, Edina, who can also cook. For special occasions, several capable local chefs are happy to come and prepare meals.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Mountaintop location (altitude 4,500 ft) with spectacular sunrise-to-sunset views plus rolling hills, forests and ponds. In all, about 55 acres. Two-and-a-half hours by excellent roads from Guarulhos Airport; three from Sao Paulo, four from Rio. Flat space for helicopters. High quality main house of 3,600sf with fine public rooms and three comfortable bedrooms suites, two of them with Jacuzzi tubs. Excellent guest cottage of about 700sf with three nice bedrooms, two baths and living room. Cottage of about 800sf with two rustic chic bedroom suites and a secondary kitchen, which is useful for large-scale entertaining.

Hidden car park — so the place’s amazing peace is not disturbed — for up to 20 cars. Barbecue house (about 350sf) with large built-in BBQ, traditional pizza oven, table seating for up to 14, large wood-burning sauna, toilet, shower.Gazebo measuring maybe 300sf with enormous granite fireplace and bar. It can be used for dancing, as a stage for performances, or even an altar … a few couples have been married there! Pretty, simple cottage (800sf) with three bedrooms, one bathroom, kitchen, dining room and living room for overflow guests. Enormous stone-built swimming pool which appears to be a little lake but has all the necessary equipment plus built-in hydromassage spa and firepit and two ipe decks jutting into the water. Excellent recently-built manager’s house and large storage shed. Top-quality stables for up to 20 horses (2,200sf), general farm building with offices (800sf) and cowshed (400sf). All principal accommodations and social areas were built or renovated in the last seven years using only the finest materials and fittings. A maintenance programme is in place to keep the property in pristine condition. There is an organic kitchen garden supplying more than adequate quantities of fresh vegetables and herbs; also, an organic orchard with a wide variety of seasonal fruits. Most important, there has been careful attention to infrastructure.

Cada vez melhor

  • 5 of 5

Estivemos pela 2ª vez no Serra da Estrela e, por incrível que pareça, o lugar ainda nos surpreende pela sua beleza, cuidado e perfeição nos detalhes.

A ajuda da Suraia nos detalhes da reserva, o carinho e pro-atividade do Assis do início ao fim da nossa estadia e a presença da Rosangela e da Rose fazem a diferença.

O lugar é impecável. Limpo, cheiroso, organizado, tudo à disposição. :)

Obrigada Charles e Suraia por abrirem as portas de sua propriedade para nós! Grande abraço.

Camyla & William

Um pedacinho do céu

  • 5 of 5

Se existe um pedaço do céu na Terra, este é o lugar!

A propriedade é linda e bem cuidada, a residencia é bem espaçosa e aconchegante, os quartos são bons e confortáveis, a cozinha bem equipada e com eletros e louças de primeira, os banheiros grandes e limpos , a área de churrasqueira ótima com um visual lindo.

Poderia passar dias falando deste lugar, que ainda não teria como descrever toda a sua beleza, conta ainda com uma equipe gentil e pronta a atender suas necessidades.

O proprietário é uma pessoa boa de negocio, atencioso e preocupado com o bem estar de todos.

SUPER RECOMENDO!!!!!

Agradeço a vc Alexandre por dividir este lugar lindo comigo e minha família, espero voltar em breve!!!! Minha Família amou o lugar e suas belezas !!!! Obrigada de coração por nos proporcionar este Final de semana maravilhoso que será guardado em nossas lembranças e corações .

Abraço da Família Mota Ferreira da Silva - Lorena SP Guarulhos SP Angra dos Reis RJ

Maravilhoso

  • 5 of 5

Tivemos uma experiência em família excelente na casa. É totalmente equipada, tudo moderno, de ótima qualidade e funcionando perfeitamente. Tem muitas opções de lazer, o ofuro, a churrasqueira, cavalos, sauna, lareira, fogueira, fogão a lenha, Horta... Conseguimos aproveitar tudo muito bem.

O visual da casa supera as expectativas, é lindo. Em todos os cantos tem-se uma vista incrível. Não consigo pensar em uma reclamação.

O caseiro Assis é ótimo, muito prestativo e simpático, sempre presente quando precisamos.

Com chuva, sol, frio, a casa é nota 10.

Obrigado Alexandre pela excelente casa e nos responder prontamente as dúvidas antes da viagem.
