“Great place to stay - so close to the Casa. Amazing views, excellent help along the way. Highly recommend!”
R.S. (Airbnb, October 2018)
“This is a wonderful and healing place to stay very close to the Casa. It was a bit tricky figuring out meals as when you are at a pousada you just show up to eat! And you will spend more money than staying in a pousada. I did miss the ease of having our meals ready for us. But, given that, we were so grateful that we ended up staying here. The balcony and hammocks were divine. The privacy and space were much appreciated. And when we had questions they were answered in a timely fashion. It is clean and surrounded by beauty. Nothing compares to the view from the balcony. I would highly recommend this place. And we will definitely try to stay there on our next trip.”
Response from Klaus& Gundi:
Indeed, Alegria can hardly be compared to a pousada. It is a high-end apartment with a full kitchen and many amenities one would not find in an inexpensive pousada, such as superb views, spaciousness, privacy, quietude, comfort, even air conditioning, and much more. There are restaurants and posadas and hotels within just a few hundred yards from Alegria where one can go for sit-down or take-out lunch and dinner at very reasonable pricing (Hotel San Raphael, Hotel Brasil, Pousada Luz Divina, Pousada Caminho Encantado, Alquimia, Frutti's, Pizzeria Sao Joao, and many others).

"It was such great pleasure and joy to have stayed here at this apartment. It deepened my experiences at the Casa [de Dom Inacio]. It was a real retreat. The peacefulness and closeness to nature made it possible. The ever-changing weather I could witness from here, from a shelter, reflected back to how life is: misty, cloudy, sunny, rainy, humid, green. Full of life you sit here and look upon how thing can and do change just in one day ..."

"Many thanks for our perfect 2-week refuge ... peaceful and spectacular vistas. Special Thanks to Brunna [our local apartment manager]"
M. & G., Australia (January 2017)
"Wir möchten uns ganz herzlich für dieses Apartement als Rückzugsort und Heim bedanken. Die Sonnenuntergänge in der Casa [de Dom Inacio] und die zauberhaften Sonnenaufgänge auf dem Balkon [von Alegria] werden uns fehlen. Dieser Ort is magisch und sehr kraftvoll. Wir werden bestimmt wieder nach Abadiania kommen und anderen Bekannten und Freunden diesen wunderschönen Ort empfehlen. DANKESCHÖN!"

“It was a wonderful stay in this beautiful house!
Thanks a lot for your hospitality”

“We stayed at "Alegria" for almost 1 month. I'm soooo happy my husband found it via AIRBNB. It has an amazing location! Literally the nearest place to Casa. Plus it is so peaceful and quiet. You are away from the pousadas (small Abadiania hotels) and all the people. Check the view! It is fantastic indeed. If you want, you can cook for yourself like we did or you can eat at any pousada. To sum up: in our opinion it is the BEST option to live in Abadiania. Do not hesitate to rent it. ”

"Das ist ein Platz zur Erholung! Wir hatten einen wundervollen und erholsamen Aufenthalt. Die Uneinsichtigkeit, die Ruhe und der weite Ausblick machen das Apartment einzigartig. Dieser Ort war fuer unser Leben sehr bereichernd."
H. & G. L. (January, 2016)
"Vim com minha esposa e minhas duas filhas. Alegria se apresentou para nos como um espaco onde pudemos nos unir mais como familia, pois sua paz, seu ambiente nos deram um conforto especial.
Esperamos voltar mais vezes."
C.L. - Sao Paulo (December 2015)
Thank you so much, Alegria!
We had a wonderful time during our two weeks' stay in Abadiania.
The perfect place to enjoy life in a free, silent, and peaceful atmosphere, where all senses and energies could evolve, making it easy for us to feel gratefulness -- together with our deep experiences at the Casa de Dom Inacio .
Thanks also to our housekeepers (Anne and Rex, our apartment managers) -- they gave us a warm welcome and all necessary help.
The wide view and the sunrises are just overwhelming. Definitely we will recommend to other people this lovely oasis of well-being to spend a marvelous time!
M. & H., Waldenburg, Switzerland (July 2015)
Thank you for the beautiful apartment which was our home for 4 weeks. We have traveled all over the world and rented houses and apartments but never felt so good and relaxed as at "Alegria." It was a blessing to stay at this place with the amazing views.
We've met two wonderful people, Anne and Rex (our apartment managers) who were giving us support and very good information. We are really blessed!
Thanks again, S. & C., Amsterdam, Netherlands (June/July 2015)
Danke vielmals ...
Die Wohnung hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Alles war da -- und wenn doch etwas fehlte, waren Rex und Anne da.
Noch einmal herzlichen Dank an Euch vier für den sehr angenehmen Aufenthalt. Ich habe Euch und die Wohnung weiterempfohlen und werde das auch in Zunkunft tun.
P.S. : "Alegria" = Freude in Spanisch undPortugiesisch -- ein echtes Programm!
N.A. und I.H., Schöneck, Germany (Juni 2015)
... Before another day goes by, I wanted to say thank you. Your apartment is beautiful, and so peaceful and serene it added a whole new dimension to my stay at the Casa. The views from the terrace are stunning and I got up at 5 am happily every morning just to see the new day break. [The housekeepers] are delightful and welcoming. Thank you for making this special place available! ...
Warm regards, S.B., Miami Beach, FL (April 2014)

... Alegria has been the perfect place for my 7th journey to the Casa. Peaceful, private, perfect. A place that facilitates introspection and healing. A place where love can grow. I enjoyed watching the sunrises and watching the birds gliding gracefully through the sky -- a reminder of how we can move through life as we learn life's lessons. Enjoyed being on the lanai under the stars and moon and feeling the cool breeze blow on my face as I slept. ALL A REMINDER OF HOW BLESSED WE ARE...
With love, M.S.M., Hawaii (September 2014)
... We had a marvelous stay here at the beautiful and serene Alegria! We feel the "Light an Love" in every moment as we embarked on yet another journey of healing here in Abadiania. Words can't fully express how restful and wonderful our visit was ...
Liebe and Light, R. & O. W., Irvine, CA (May 2014)
... Was für eine gesegnete Zeit hier! Das Wort "Entspannung" hat für uns eine völlig neue Bedeutung bekommen, und das wunderbare Alegria-Apartment hat einen wesentlichen Anteil daran. Allein der spektakuläre Blick in die weite, unverbaute Savannenlandschaft weitet schon das Herz! Dazu die wunderbare Stille. Wenn man nach dem Getümmel in der Casa das Tor zur Anlage hier durchschreitet, hat man das Gefühl eine Idzlle zu betreten. Ein perfekter Ort zur Erholung und zur Enfaltung der tiefen Prozesse, die in der Casa angestoßen werden ...
J. & A., Potsdam, Germany (May 2014)
... Alegria was the perfect respite and thoughtful destination, as we begin our journey of faith, healing, and love. My wife and I are both creative in our work and in life, and you've brought a whole new level of meaning to that pursuit and to our lives here at the Casa.
With love, S. & M. W. (April 2014)
... Wir haben die Ruhe und den genialen Blick sehr genossen … Bin jeden Morgen aufgestanden um den Sonnenaufgang auf der Terrasse live zu erleben.
Die Casa Energie ist im Apartment fast genauso stark spürbar wie im Casa Garten!
Tolles Apartment, ruhig, mit tollem Blick und guter Energie ...
J.B., Germany (April 2014)
.... Danke sagen für die schöne Zeit im Appartment ALEGRIA. Der Prozess und die permanente Erneuerung an Körper, Geist und Seele werden weitergehen ...
Alles Liebe und Gute -- A.W., Switzerland (March 2014)
"Alegria is the perfect place -- a heaven in which to feel held and safe during the process of assimilation of the unfathomable gifts of the highly energized location. We love the simplicity, comfort, and above all the magnificent location and views of the infinite, fertile, luscious hills and valleys!"
Muito obrigado -- R.& A, California, USA (February 2014)
"The best location I had ever been in Abadiania. I marveled every day looking at the landscape. It's an inspiration for silence and meditation."
