My stay at Hugo and Ana was a blessing. I am very happy to have had this experience. Truly being immersed in their life and feeling very welcome. At times there were some misunderstandings and disagreements about the voluntary work. But Hugo was easy to communicate with about these things and it resolved itself. Happy to share his the home and delicious chocolate, truly made me addicted! Ana made me a very beautiful amanita crochet hat, she is very talented at her work! The place they live is incredibly beautiful, with a view of Paraty from afar, and beautiful cachoeiras nearby. Thank you ❤️

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!

Minha experiência na casa do Hugo foi incrível. Cheguei no primeiro dia já com um problema no joelho, Hugo me deu todo acolhimento e suporte necessário. A casa de vidro proporciona um visual único, perto de cachoeiras belíssimas. Todos se tornaram amigos pra mim, só tenho a agradecer! Tanto para Hugo, quanto para a sua companheira, Ana. Já sinto saudades, principalmente dos a casa. ❤️

Solo puedo agradecer a Hugo por la confianza y oportunidad al abrirme las puertas de su casa permitiendome conocer este hermoso lugar rodeado de una naturaleza exuberante me siento privilegiada en haber podido compartir este tiempo con está linda família, con mates, charlas y ricas comiditas preparadas con amor... me encantó pasar este tiempito con Ana, Sereno y el gordito peludo de Emerson. Só gratidão!!!
