We are an Italian/Brazilian couple with two small kids, 6 and 4 y.o. We recently moved to this land to build our dream. Set an ecolodge and dance working space in the wild nature of Brazil.

Updated July 2022

10km away from the centre of Paraty, a world-famous city in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We are an Italian-Brazilian family of four and a year ago we moved from Milan to here, wishing to build an ecolodge in the forest. The property has plenty of resources and we are just starting so there is plenty to do: gardening, planting, and building (working with word and rocks mainly) If you are interested in a jungle immersion write me for more info. We are open to volunteers who desire to share experiences, workforce and life stories, to add up โ˜บ๏ธ

What type of host are you?

What are you looking for help with?
What’s the mission of your community?

Our project is recently born and everything is being developed slowly, as we live and feel this area. We are guided by principles of permaculture, love and respect for all living beings. Volunteers in all signed areas are welcome.

Maybe. We can help with an invitation letter if the candidate has good qualifications.

Portuguese, Italian. Also German and English.


The climate is mainly hot and humid almost all year long. In our land, we have a humid valley and also a drier area from where you see some mountains.

It is a tropical country! Paraty is located in a wonderful bay!

How to get to your site


Easiest and cheapest is to come from Rio or Sรฃo Paulo by bus. We can pick you up in the city. It is a 15 ‘ride by car to our place. 10 km (4 of a white road) we have no transportation available for this last part.

Is there internet access?

Yes, but not very strong.
