                          Introduction to Sítio do Cervo

Living room, main house
A thirteen hectare (130,000 sq m) secluded estate, entirely surrounded by lush rainforest, Sítio do Cervo offers a unique opportunity to experience the vibrant nature of Brazil's Atlantic Forest in complete peace, comfort and security. A six-bedroom, air-conditioned house with stunning views in all directions is offered for fully-serviced rental. Within two hours of São Paulo city, the sítio includes wireless internet access, satellite TV with international channels, swimming pool, fishing lake, forest trails and large, covered barbecue area. For birdwatching enthusiasts, guides can be recommended to help observe some of the 200+ bird species identified at the property - and for the more casual nature-lover, feeders bring a breath-taking variety of brightly-coloured tanagers, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, toucans, parakeets and many other species close to the living areas of the sítio.

The mezzanine
The sítio is ideal for large family groups, honeymoon couples or colleagues based in Brazil looking for time out of the city in an exceptional location. We make your life as easy as possible during your stay: you bring the ingredients (based on a recommended shopping list), our skilled local staff will cook delicious meals, supplemented by home-grown produce including manioc, daily free-range eggs, home-reared chicken cooked on a wood stove, bananas and assorted fruit and vegetables. Leaving you time to relax, swim, read or listen to music in the 10-metre high living room with log fireplace, comfortable sofas and mezzanine with panoramic forest views.
The dining room overlooking bird-feeding area
Rentals at Sítio do Cervo are tailored to the individual needs of visitors. For larger groups, accommodation can be expanded to include the three-bedroomed guest house, a self-catering unit far enough from the main house to offer complete privacy. For smaller groups, requiring only one or two bedrooms, prices are adjusted accordingly. Contact us with your particular requirements, and the period you wish to stay, and we will send a price quotation.
