Engrossed for years in the corporate world’s chaotic lifestyle, Ciro and Ana Calfat decided to take another direction to their lives. After years of researching and studying, they’ve found the ideal location for this change. In 2005, they’ve created Barra do Bié, a safe heaven with 58,000 m² (over 36,000 square miles) in the mist of the mountain range Serra do Mar and surrounded by the river Ribeirão do Sertão, where they greet their guests personally on arrival and offer an experience of nature contemplation and rest. There, the third host is Bié, the couple’s friendly golden retriever, who may gallantly take guests around the garden and trails.



The six cottages in Barra do Bié celebrate the mountain spirit, with rustic furniture and patchwork quilts on the beds. During the winter, sleep can become even better with comfy thermal sheets. Blankets made of locally produced wool complete the perfect setting for watching the mist over the mountains. The romantic atmosphere doesn’t go away during the summer, when the sun is warm and invites you to wake up early and take a dip into the inn’s swimming pool.

There is no rush at Barra do Bié. Ever. Breakfast starts at 9am and goes up to 2pm. Bread, cake and jam are served fresh from the inn’s kitchen, where the priority always goes to local products. Passionate about cooking, Ana and her team prepare the dishes served during lunch and dinner, when booked in advance. Their main inspiration are the mountains of Serra do Mar. Lamb, pine seeds and shiitake, all produced in Cunha, are served for the guests relishing. As well as the meals, all the beer and pinga (Brazilian liquor distilled from sugar cane) served there are craft products.
