The house is new built entirely of adobe bricks, its bright with nice views of the countryside. A fully equipped kitchen is available for you to prepare breakfast. The house is to European standards both in decor and comfort. Our house is solar powered. Wifi is good. The water for both the showers and drinking come from a natural crystal well. Private Bathroom.
Casa Evoque, was completed in February 2017, it has been a labour of love to complete this dream . I wanted to live softly with nature, we built the house, with great care for the surrounding trees, keeping as many of them as possible, this provides shaded areas amongst the many trees.
We called the house Casa Evoque, it evokes a sense of magic of tranquility of a deep connection with nature. Living this way without the dependency on energy and water from the city, is completely empowering!
Inside I wanted to provide a calm and spacious environment, choosing neutral colours and floors, I do hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.
As our home is completely solar powered, we have plenty of plugs and sockets for you to charge your mobile phones and computers LED lights provide very good lighting in the evening. But remember to switch lights off when not needed to conserve power.
Guests will have their own key to enter their room, which has its own private en-suite bathroom and toilet. Guests can access the lounge and kitchen for Breakfast, and the varanda. Guests will also be provided with a side door key to access the house.
I am a chef and will often be found in my restaurant, Aldeia on the main street of Alto Paraiso Av. Ary Valadão Filho, I offer an eclectic variety of food from around the World. I would be glad to share a coffee with you and chat when i am around.
If i am not around Ana, our housekeeper will welcome you on your arrival. If I am not in Alto then Flora, my good friend will be living at the house and will host your stay.
Casa Evoque is a sanctuary of rest and relaxation, it is not on main electric power. when there are power cuts in the city, we still have electric ! we discourage very loud music but welcome singing, dancing and instruments. Birds of every kind and sometimes even deer and armadillos and monkeys love to visit our garden, you must always remember where you are Casa Evoque amongst nature, so keep doors closed when you are not in the room.
Sometimes the internet goes off for short periods, this happens to the whole town, so be patient, however our internet is good enough to watch movies and use all your usual applications.
