A secret about this house:

It was built by a Frenchman in 1840, Antoine Pavret, who came at the time from Lyon, the city of the current owner. A mere coincidence! 15 years ago, 9 large rooms were attached to the original structure, built with old material from other farms in Minas Gerais. A stone sculptor from São João del Rey designed the beautiful granite fountain. Each piece of the farm and each piece of furniture have their story contributing to a subtle balance, full of meaning and beauty. When not rented, this house is the main residence of the owners.

“To experience Pousada Picinguaba and Fazenda Catuçaba is to rediscover a deep sense of harmony. In excellence, discretion and simplicity, sheltered from the tumult of hurried and noisy people, the team of the two houses shares the best: a journey in a primary forest classified as a Unesco bio-sphere of humanity to reach a waterfall, with attention paid to the beauty of bio-diversity; a precise and attentive cuisine based on organic products, fruits and seeds from the Mata Atlantica; discussions by the fireside in an Amazonian house for the defense of the sacred places of the native Indians… the Pousada Picinguaba and the Fazenda Catuçaba are not hotels, they are a unique experience in the world to find what is essential...”

“This stay in Catuçaba and Picinguaba was a small miracle: first finding us all together in these magical places, then getting to know you and Bianca and appreciating the in-depth work you are both doing there. The vibrations that I was able to feel particularly in Catuçaba reveal a very strong and spiritually charged place. I regretted not having more time to deepen our research!”

Françoise and François L (France)6 dias em Picinguaba, 5 dias em Catuçaba

“It was 5 days in the midst of exuberant nature, of the heat of the fire on cold and clear nights, of the art that perfectly integrated into the spaces and landscape, of the warmth of the delicious food and the people who took such good care of us. Days of light, days of peace, days of love. Spending my 50 years celebration at Fazenda Catuçaba with my family and dear friends was everything I imagined and much more. Memories that will stay in my heart forever.”
