The Experience

Olá, viajantes! Um paraíso no meio da natureza, temperado com muita música e brownies. A ideia da participação dos voluntários é após um café da manhã, para participar das diversas funções para poder manter a estrutura do espaço, seja na horta, jardim, arrumação e limpeza. Também pode ser para ficar atento ao carro... funções normalmente domésticas, assim como outras intervenções possíveis. Vem nos ajudar!

Hugo & Ana are a lovely couple who will welcome you & make you feel at home. The house is still on renovation so some things are unfinished or missing like windows & furniture. It's located 10km from Paraty in the middle of the beautiful nature & some waterfalls. My tasks were mostly cleaning, cooking & taking care of the garden. I did 3 professional Thai massages as well as good will. I didn't have 2 days off but it was ok for me. Their English is limited. I would suggest to bring mangos, avocados, papayas, gloves & repellent. If you love dairy, sugar & desserts, this is the place for you!

O Hugo é querido e atencioso. O Sereno, seu filho é uma gracinha, cheio de vida e amor… As tarefas são bastante tranquilas e variam entre fazer entrega dos a casa na cidade/deveres de casa/cuidados com a horta. Com horários flexíveis. Houve uma falha em nossa comunicação em relação as refeições, por isso sugiro que alinhe antecipadamente isso. Vale lembrar que a paisagem da sua casa é linda, mas para chegar até lá é preciso fazer uma trilha com bastante subida ou pagar por um transporte. A cidade de Paraty oferece bons acessos de transportes públicos para as praias…

Eu precisei antecipar minha partida da casa de Hugo pois tive dificuldade para me adaptar a localização e rotina da casa. É uma casa de madeira e vidro simples e linda! No alto da montanha, com cachoeira no quintal e água da nascente nas torneiras... Quando não falta água! A casa não possui caixa d'água então rola bastante estresse quando chove e os canos entopem pois falta água até para beber. A nascente fica numa distância razoável porém com trilha de difícil acesso. O mercado mais próximo fica numa distância de 3km. A casa também não possui lavanderia, apenas uma torneira em uma banheira.

Genial experiencia, Hugo me enseñó varias cosas relacionadas a la cocina, es una gran persona...su comprimiso cómo papá con el pequeño Sereno deja mucho para admirar y aprender de ello, los la casa que hace te dejan sin palabras jaja son irresistibles. Si hablamos del lugar podemos usar la palabra surreal. la panorámica de esa casa es una motivación para despertarse todos los días y agradecer por dónde estás. lamento porque desafortunadamente no pudimos coincidir mucho para compartir más momentos ya que yo tenía cosas personales para hacer en paralelo al voluntariado. Solo agradecer 🙌🏻
