Altar is an experience that starts from a principle: using technology to disconnect from your phone and commune with yourself, with those you love and with the nature around you.

At the foot of Mantiqueira, in the encounter between design and nature, our house has a solar energy system, its own waste treatment and built with reforestation wood to reduce its impact on nature.

The space
The @ altar.brproject started with a houseboat, Altar:Água, but the idea has always been more ambitious than just a house: building a decentralized hotel, in the most incredible places in Brazil, using the technology of building sustainable houses and completely connected with nature.


After setting up one of the most amazing homes in the world available through @airbnb (their word), we had the second-disc syndrome: how would we overcome, or at least equate, the experience of a houseboat?


How about a house with a private freshwater beach, an hour and a half from São Paulo and a few hundred meters from our first house, in the most beautiful dam in São Paulo? We were born in the water, and we can't get away from the water.

Altar: Prainha is minimalist and welcoming, almost entirely made of glass, it is an invitation to enjoy time with those we love, in front of a fireplace or contemplating stars. It's equipped with a movie screen and projector, and its furniture curatorship carries Westwing's signature, making the setting even more special and inspiring. The bedding is Trousseau, the Zissou bed and the lighting project is by Guilherme Wentz of Wentz Design. In short: the house is worthy of a 5 star hotel!

We offer a curatorship of “moments”: boating, walking or horseback riding, discovering the best of local cuisine, or, if you prefer, total isolation. We disconnect you so that you, surrounded by nature, can reconnect with what - and what - really matters.

---------------
Access :

The house is less than two hours from São Paulo: Fernão Dias Highway, small dirt road and private parking.

Throughout the journey, we teach our guests to use the house and let them stay in our residence, so that they can be 100% free of external contact, if they so choose.

---------------
To sleep :
Accommodates even a small family: we have a bedroom with queen bed and a single bed built into the wall of the hallway that leads to the living room, which during the day is completely invisible.

All the linen in the house is from Trousseau,

---------------
Entertainment:

- High-fidelity sound system with turntables and wi-fi
- Video projector with internal screen resolution 4K of 150 inches, which can also be used on the outside wall of the house, such as outdoor cinema
- Fire Pit
- Kayak

---------------

Kitchen with basic items: pots and pans, stove, two small refrigerators with freezer, microwave. We don't have an oven.

For meals, we have 3 options:

1- We believe that the Altar experience exists so that you can, in addition to disconnecting, rediscover the pleasure of doing some things with your own hands. We encourage you to take the ingredients you love the most and cook as our kitchen is well-equipped.

2- You can also discover one of the restaurants of the region: the French restaurant, excellent address on the way to the arrival, before leaving Fernão Dias. It is open from Wednesday to Sunday, and Capril do Bosque, a charming place and gastronomy based on artisanal goat cheeses, which is a 25-minute drive away. Open Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

- 15 minutes walk from the house the hostel Varanda do Sol makes basic dishes (Saturday and Sunday)

- in the city of Joanópolis, about 30 minutes away, there are places that are open every day.

Amenities

We provide natural, biodegradable soaps and shampoo compatible with our water treatment system. Our partner, Aho Aloe, is a brand of organic and ethical products based on Aloe vera, whose plantations are on the banks of the same dam.

Sou publicitário e antropólogo... Meus pequenos Sofi, Joaquim e minha esposa amamos nos aventurar pelas belezas desse mundo e já passamos (com e sem as crianças) pelos confins do Brasil e mundo. A gente acredita que viajar nos dá a chance de nos conectarmos de verdade (e sem fio)...
