Description

The Space

Sao Luis in Northeast Brazil, capital of Maranhao State, was the only Brazilian city founded by the French in 1612. Situated on an island with kilometres of fine beaches. It is already a growing Brazilian vacation spot due to its proud colonial history, UNESCO World Heritage status and proximity to unique national parks.

Our beautifully renovated relaxing colonial house complete with swimming pool and all modern amenities is located in Sao Luis, MA on a quiet and safe side street in the heart of the historical Reviver centre in Praia Grande, with its colonial charm and folkloric tradition. My house is not a hotel, or a pousada but instead welcoming home from home accommodation.

The house is 600 square meters and has 8 bed rooms, 3 bath rooms, an open kitchen with a fridge, stove etc., a living room, a big dining room, and a huge veranda.

You will be within less than 3mins walking distance of nice restaurants, daily live music like Samba, MPB, Tambor di Crioula and Reggae or one of the many festivals such as Bumba Meu Boi which is only found in the North/North East of Brazil. It is a 10 min. bus/taxi ride to city beaches such Ponta D'Areia, Ponta do Farol, São Marcos, Olho d’Água & Calhau. There is a great carnival in February, Tambor de Mina after Easter, Forro, MPB, Crioula and the famous Bumba Meu Boi cow festival in June, it is attractive year round for tropical holidays

We are also the closest city to the small town of Barrerinhas, the access point to the 1550 km² unique white powder sand dunes hills and freshwater oasis of Lençóis Maranhenses National Park with nearby coastal villages with activities such as kite surfing, wind surfing. Maranhao also has Brazil's newest national park Chapada das Mesas which has stunning waterfalls perfect for hiking, climbing and swimming and table top mountains.

People are very friendly towards the few tourists and unlike many Brasilian cities, here you will find an authentic and unforgettable experience off the beaten track.
