Property description

The 16.000 m² land is localized at the seashore of Araujo Island. The house is surrounded by original rainforest and faces the beautiful “Baía da Ilha Grande” (Great Island Bay) with its breathtaking views, the sunrise and the moonrise. Whoever appreciates the nature, silence, beauty and contemplation is right for this house.
In 64m² there are two double bedrooms (one can be rearranged to a two-bed single room); one living room with dinner table integrated to the kitchen; one bathroom; and a terrace where people can enjoy the ocean and garden. The house water is drinkable and comes from the island rising water.
There is a support boat (for 4 people) to transport people between the island and continent. Bigger boats can anchor on a 40 meters away from the deck float.
The rent includes the services of a housekeeper-cooky who can arrange to get seafood from the local fishermen. A sailor man will be available for any needs referring to the boat.
Salvador Moreira, one of the most beautiful beaches around, is only 100m away from the house and can be reached through a pleasant walk within the rainforest. Another possible tour is to walk around the island to see beaches, animals and rainforest vegetation, having the possibility to stop by a couple of bars and restaurants.
The Araújo island is 5 minutes away from the continent (Praia Grande) and 20 minutes away from Paraty (by boat). It is the second biggest Island of the bay and it is 95% covered by the rainforest. At the southern side there is a community of approximately 480 people, most of them are fishermen.
Paraty is a colonial city surrounded by the sea, rivers and mountains. The 17th century Portuguese architecture is still preserved in the historical center, where churches, local handicraft and nice restaurants can be visited. Paraty hosts a literary fair every July, the FLIP (Paraty’s International Literary Fair) is Paraty’s most important cultural event.
Other attractions:
February – Carnamar
May – Festa do Divino (Divine’s Party)
June – Festival do Camarão (Shrimp festival)
July – Procissão de barcos da Festa de São Pedro (Saint Peter’s festival ‘s boat procession) – at Araújo Island
