The atelier was built as an artist's studio, in an open loft style, light and airy.
It is nestled in amongst the trees at eye level with the birds

It is truly a magnificent stand and i feel very proud to show it to guests as it looks so much more beautiful than in the photos.
Guests have told me about the magic of the lake at night especially during a full moon when it becomes like a mirror reflected right back into the atelier.
For nature lovers, it is truly paradise.

The space
The atelier is a newly converted artists workshop. It is loft style, one large space with high ceilings. It has incredible views over the lake and surrounding hills.

It is situated inside a closed private condominium. The condominium is fenced and has a security gate. We have never had any problems of any sort.

The atelier is light and airy and very comfortable. As it is at the top of the hill a natural breeze blows through the place and a ceiling fan provides air circulation as well.
There is a large airconditioning unit for the very hot days that we have been having lately.
There is a small kitchenette in the atelier and a larger outdoor kitchen on the lower level if the guests want to entertain people. The BBQ area is by the pool.
It should be noted that if you have problems with going up and down stairs then the atelier is not a good choice because there is a climb of stairs to get to the top and the great view. Also if you are squeamish about the occasional bug or the sound of monkeys on the roof then again not a good choice. We are in the jungle and it is a natural environment so you will on occasion see a trail of ants, hear the sounds of nature and wonder what is playing on the roof.
All you need to do is to let me know if there is something bothering you and If I can do something about it I will.
Our neighborhood is a gentle mix of old families with money with amazing lakeside estates, International newcomers such as ourselves and simple living locals. But it seems to work and this mix prevents the neighborhood from becoming too ritzy.
The Canto is mostly residential but there are a few good restaurants and shops sprinkled throughout certain segments of the long road that hugs the lake. Within walking distance we have several good pizzerias and a bistro. Basilico pizzeria is famous for having the best pizza on the island and I agree. It is obvious that it is a cut above the rest, also in price.
There is a marina situated 5 minutes away from the house and we have a 7 person Evolve launcher docked (URL HIDDEN) is available with a captain for hire. Day trips from this side of the lake to the other are one of the most fun things to do on the island. This would include swimming and bbqs on the deserted nearby beaches that are only accessible by the water. There are some good water side restaurants also to be visited by boat.
Our daughters are learning the watersports, right there in front of my house!
We are conveniently situated for the nightlife in lagoa, of which there is plenty.
There are an abundance of restaurants, bars, shops and cafes in Lagoa, a 5 minute drive or a 20 minute walk away.
If you want to take the bus there is a bus stop at the bottom of the hill by the gate that will take you straight to a main terminal a few minutes away. From here you can get buses all over the island.
The nearest beach of Campeche which is natural and clean and gorgeous is a 10-15 minute drive from the house. The surfing and windsurfing is optimum there.

Should you ever want to leave the compound, there is lots to do in the area.

I am truly a cosmopolitan person having been born of Scottish parents in South Africa. This set me up for a life of living abroad although I have also done my time in both Scotland (Aberdeen) and England, (London). I lived in New York during the 80's and 90's. I am a visual artist and chef de cuisine by profession. I hosted a number one rated cooking show on the Discovery Channel for a number of years, called Epicurious. I also spent 15 years cooking for the stars and supermodels of the New York Scene. I miss the international travel but my life is very settled now and I am content with that. It has been a project of 9 years now, renovating the three houses and the property ..This project will never end as there is always something new to aim for. We are always refining the details and making sure things are comfortable for guests. I am a passionate gardener, that is the most British thing about me. I live in the Hideaway Hill condominium as does a caretaker. We have found that to be the safest and most professional thing to do to keep order and make sure that the security is in place at all times. Guests have their privacy but we like to keep an eye on things and to be there should something go wrong. You will see me around the garden, weeding, planting, shaping, clearing. It is my favorite thing to do. The property is 4,250,.00 square metres, with big trees and lots of plants so I have a lot to do, always. I am an intensely creative person and always on the go. I like people but also like getting on with my work. I love entertaining, cooking and providing a wonderful ambience for people getting together. Brazil is a great place to live. It brings out the child in us. Much more leeway to play and enjoy life. However, you will no doubt be here in the summer months and there is less play and more work for me a this time. I have to keep the garden weeded and watered and I really enjoy doing that as the night closes in. I have a maid who comes once a week and a gardener who comes and cuts the grass and does some of the weeding. I recommend you do the housekeeping yourself but if you would like maid service during your stay, please let me know and I will see what i can do. If partying in a loud and rambunctious manner, then this house and garden will not suit you or us. i do take on catered events but they happen in a controlled manner. I do not want people staying here who want to bring a lot of friends and hang out by the pool with loud music, it is really not our style. We allow churrasco and to stay at the pool area until 10.00pm with music, after that you need to be in your house if you want music or shouting to be part of your festivities. i also discourage working girls from booking as it is a family condominium, not a place to entertain a string of male friends.

  • Rodrigo

During your stay

I live on the property as that is the safest and best thing to do for all involved.
Sometimes I will be present, sometimes I will be nearby depending on whether or not my main house is also rented. But in general I am around the property a lot.
I also have a man called Rodrigo living on the property who caretakes the place. His apartment is under the atelier and having him in residence means that if there is a problem and for sure things happen, things break down suddenly, then he is here to fix it same day.
Please be poilte and greet Rodrigo, he is an incredibly honest and good person and a genius at fixing things so please treat him well as we all depend on him.
