THERE ARE STILL SOME PARADISES ON EARTH!
Here is one of them!
A unique opportunity for those who want to invest and/or live and run a business in a
lush ecological reserve.
Become a guardian of a 12 acre property with a preserved Cerrado (Brazilian Savanna) in the Pireneus Sierra, in the heart of Brazil.
100 miles from Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, 7 miles from the charming, historical and touristic town of Pirenopolis (a Brazilian Historic and Cultural Heritage), and one mile from the Pireneus State Park.
The Pireneus Sierra is second highest mountain in the State of Goias, a great destination for ecotourism, cycling trails, climbing mountains, and contemplative walks.
It is an area of exuberant beauty, rich biodiversity, a cradle for pure water springs, rivers, waterfalls galore, beautiful views and preserved Cerrado. It is a continental watershed for some of the most important water basins in South America, such as the Amazon and the Platina Water Basin (runs to the south of Brazil, to Paraguai and Uruguai).
THE CARAÍVAS PROJECT
40 years ago a dream was born:
As the young recently graduated Brazilian/American architect and educator Jeanne Marie White visited this area and found this jewel, had a inner call to buy, recover and preserve this paradise of 170 acres.
In 2019, this property has been certified as
RPPN - Private Natural Heritage Property for its environmental preservation, biodiversity and important location.
THE ECOVILLA CARAÍVAS
In 2004, the Caraivas Ecovillage, a Retreat Center and Bed & Breakfast, was designed and built, with sustainable architectural solutions that respect the preservation of the cerrado, to receive visitors and participants for ecotourism, courses, yoga and meditation retreats, cycling and environmental education about the Cerrado.
Today it offers:
Nine charming and cozy cottages w/ private kitchens, utensils and appliances, that accommodate up to 25 people.
Recreation area with a community hall and kitchen, bathroom, swimming pool, sauna, therapeutic tubs, a massage tent by the crystalline stream.
Service area contains a laundry room, furniture storage room, and tools shed.
Infrastructure: Electricity and water systems (a waterwheel, set by the river shores, supplies water to fill two water tanks with a capacity for 15,000 liters from where the water is distributed to all property), fiber optics internet, road, gate, fences and trails.
We receive about 4000 people per year.
We have had wonderful experiences!
Come and continue this beautiful life preservation project for healing, self knowledge, rest and discoveries.
Or create your own life project!
