  • An unmissable place to visit, the inconvenience is the time that only opens after 12:00. Could open earlier to tourists.

  • It was closed for a few years to restore, but soon reopened, is beautiful and very well organized, the tour is excellent and brings an overview of coffee society of Vale do Paraiba. Worth visiting and knowing all the stories including your wife's owner.

  • Visit very productive, with lots of information about the history of coffee in Brazil. Highlighted by Mrs Eyebright, way ahead of your time in the 19th century. The House has points being restored, but it's worth it anyway. Impeccable gardens, with a forest of bamboos and references to slave labor. I would just like to work more days, even on holidays, opportunity to meet tourists more the history of Brazil and Brooms.

  • Amazing place, with a lot of history about the golden period of the city of Vassouras, with emphasis on the family Teixeira Leite. The mediation team is very well prepared, with knowledge and courtesy. The surroundings of the House is surrounded by nature, where we can walk with tranquillity. Ivy's House is being restored partially. I hope there are more events at this location so nice, dedicated to culture and leisure.

  • An incredible experience, with qualified guides and with many facts about the imperial era. The house belonged to an important historical character, Eufrasia, being also a high point for couples, because of the beauty of the garden and the "tunnel of love".
