Paraty house description

Three hours away from Rio de Janeiro and four hours from Sao Paulo airport. Splendid house, featured in leading architectural magazines and book (Dream Houses) for its style and charm, located on one of the 65 enchanting islands of Paraty Bay. Fifteen minutes away from Paraty, a heritage site where Nature and Culture meet the sea. Paraty is also famous for its history and crafts. Local traditions are displayed in events and festivals all year around, the most famous being FLIP (Paraty International Literary Festival). Paraty historic center is full of boutiques where unique clothes, jewelry and accessories can be found. Local food is a must. Original recipes include seafood and tropical fruits. On Araujo island the local tour provides an encounter with tropical plants and beaches, snack bars and small restaurants. Local people are friendly. English is spoken by the younger ones who are available to guide tours or share information and tales about the island and its people. Araujo island is the only one having a transportation service to mainland, a health center and a library. For guests who prefer to relax, the house has a private beach and is also special for its décor featuring artwork from all over the world. Ample and comfortable rooms, all with magnificent views, especially at sunrise, starry nights and full moon make the stay unforgettable. So do the meals prepared by the house cook. They include fish and seafood dishes with local fruit sauces, heart of palm and cheese pies, crab cakes, squids `a doré and creative appetizers. Boat rides to other islands, most of which contain safe swimming niches, scuba diving sites, delightful bars/restaurants and tracking opportunities even to clear waterfalls. For guests coming during the Winter season, a cosy fireplace and comfortable living room allow people to enjoy different forms of entertainment. Included in the rent are guardian/boatman, boat (8 people) and housekeeper/cook. English/French/Spanish information is available as needed.
