About our home

We offer a large and beautiful colonial house in the historical center of Paraty. The house has just been completely restored and belongs to the preserved historical houses of the town. Downstairs we have two bedrooms with double beds and bathroom, and upstair there is one big room with seven beds and sepatare shower, wc and sink. There is one living room, one study (with a sofa where 2 people can sleep), and a large kitchen where all the family can cook and eat together. It also has a pateo inside with many tropical plants and a confortable sitting area that is perfect for enjoying a caipirinha in the afternoon. It's a very big house, with wooden floor, a stone wall, and elegant tropical colonial decoration. We have a part time maid who cooks very well and can help you to buy the food and fresh fish. The best fish and fruit markets are right around the corner.


More about us

  1. We are Giselle and Alex, a married couple in the middle fifties with three teenagers (19,18 and 15). We are both professionals (psychologist and engineer) and enjoy travelling when able to get away. We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to try what sounds a great way to see another country as a resident - and allow someone to see ours. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in Brazil.

It is a beautiful colonial town, considered a National Historical Monument by UNESCO and preserves until today its countless natural and architectural charms. When walking through the historical Center of Paraty, free of cars , you will travel back in time, where walking has to be done in a leisurely pace due to the irregular rounded cobblestone pavement of its streets. Its area comprises the National Park of Bocaina, the Environmental Protection Area of Cairuçu, where the village of Trindade is located , a place of rare beauty, the Park Reserve of Joatinga; it also has limits with the State Park of Serra do Mar.
