Surrounded by forests, the farm is a beautiful, two kilometer long green valley in the mountains west of Salvador de Bahia, secluded from the outside world. If you want to enjoy nature, walks, horse riding (included), bird watching or simply relax in this remote hide out, this is your place. The farmhouse is located 6 km north of the small rural city of Ubaira as a crow flies. After a small pass-over you have a view of this valley which is one farm, completely private, with only the sounds of birds accompanying you. It feels like a small kingdom. The valley consists of eighty hectares of native tropical forest (mata atlantica), hundred hectares of pasture, four hectares of cacao plantations and a central lake of about one hectare. Cows, horses and mules roam the valley, as do turkeys, pea...Surrounded by forests, the farm is a beautiful, two kilometer long green valley in the mountains west of Salvador de Bahia, secluded from the outside world. If you want to enjoy nature, walks, horse riding (included), bird watching or simply relax in this remote hide out, this is your place. The farmhouse is located 6 km north of the small rural city of Ubaira as a crow flies. After a small pass-over you have a view of this valley which is one farm, completely private, with only the sounds of birds accompanying you. It feels like a small kingdom. The valley consists of eighty hectares of native tropical forest (mata atlantica), hundred hectares of pasture, four hectares of cacao plantations and a central lake of about one hectare. Cows, horses and mules roam the valley, as do turkeys, peacocks, geese, ducks and chickens together with an abundance of native bird-life. At an average altitude of 720 meters (ranging from 650 to 850 meters), the climate is temperate tropical with maximum temperatures in summer of 28 degrees and minimum nighttime temperatures in winter of around 12 degrees. The yearly rainfall is about 2000mm and the valley has twelve natural springs and a rivulet that give an abundance of water to the valley. Even during the great Bahian drought of 2011 and 2012 (the worst recorded), most springs kept on producing water. I bought the fazenda in 2008 from an architect who could no longer keep up the property because of health reasons. The day he showed me this beautiful farm, I fell in love and have been ever since. Slowly I improved its dirt road, the two houses on it, built a stone house that has the feel of a medieval place. A friendly team of staff live in the valley and take care of the animals.More
