Founded in an 1850′s coffee depot and lodge, the building remains intact and preserved from the days when the Viscount of Mau had its steel beams ordered from London and assembled in Praa Afonso Viseu, where, still surrounded by the great mansions of the age, the house served as a meeting ground for coffee farmers and traders. Adorned by the natural beauty of Tijuca Forest, the point rapidly grew in popularity. Today, at the entrance of Tijuca Forests National Park, the house has been refurbished to the most modern of standards. With its comfortable and acclimatized rooms the house once again comes alive to host your every desire.
