Sip a refreshing glass of the natural spring water, then take a dip in the secluded natural pool at this nature-inspired, architectural masterpiece in the forest's heart. Pick bananas, look for monkeys and watch blue butterflies fluttering by too.

Paraty, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Arca house is located inside our ecological sanctuary called Aldeia Rizoma in the middle of the Atlantic Forest, at the border of Bocaina National Park, one of the most biodiverse ecosystem on the planet.

One hundred meters from the entrance gate of the property, there’s a local restaurant called Barão—a simple place, but very authentic, with delicious food.

Local community of neighbors in that region live in harmony with nature and are our dear friends.
