About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Covered parking. Independent water supply (well). Internet connection and/or maid service available on request.

Approx. 1.5 hectare (3.7 acre) property has mature fruit trees, yielding (depending on season & rainfall) cashew fruit as well as coconuts, pinha, mangoes (varieties), lime, cajarana, acerola and tamarinds (2 types).

Property maintained by local caretaker.

Miles of open sand beach and shallow waters devoid of predators, riptides or pollution. Agreeable climate with near permanent ocean breeze. Fresh fish and, depending on season and availability, crab, shrimp or lobster can be had locally. A restaurant opens across the village street on the weekends and a couple of bars operate when fishermen cash in their catch or local weekenders from town come to visit. The caretaker runs a tenda with necessities. Assembly of God has Sunday evening service. .

For those seeking a well-appointed, spacious house, accessible, but semi-remote, in a paradisaical ambiance, this is the ticket. The property has a rural setting, not for the city party crowd.

The nearest town (Areia Branca) is approx. 20 minutes away. There one finds restaurants, a market, LAN houses ( fast internet), banks, clinic, Catholic mass, supermarkets, pharmacies and the ferry across the Mossoro river estuary.

You should contact the owner to ascertain that this house is suitable for your family or group. Additional details, directions and procedures are well laid out and will be provided upon commitment.

Internet service is available at different speeds. The service runs monthly, A neighborhood woman is available on as-needed basis to cook, clean and/or wash. The cost can be negotiated on a pro-rate linked to the minimum wage. We can set up either or both services prior to arrival.

Why Fred Bellermann chose Areia Branca

Fell in love with Brazil, that region (sertão), its people and that village decades ago. Have been improving the lot all these years and now the house is finished. A shame to leave it empty most of the year.

What makes this villa unique

This is the kind of place people dream about., Seemingly endless white beaches, quiet, exotic, friendly locals, and all with the comforts of a well thought out, large home. Once you sit on the front porch or recline in the hammock under the large cashew overlooking the ocean, you will never want to go home again.
