About the neighbourhood
Our retreat Bela Natureza is situated in a secure condominium inside the rural community of Coqueiro de Arembepe, rich in lush greenery, flowing with meandering riverside vegetation, and home to wild birds and small monkeys.

In Coqueiro, less than a five minute walk away, you can find small shops with beverages, fruit and vegetables, fresh bread, eggs, milk, and all basic necessities.
Across the road is the charming fishing village of Arembepe with a historic background, beaches offering bathing and surfing, and plenty of traditional local cuisine. Around the main square, you can find food stands, hidden bars, supermarkets, pharmacies, gyms, cash machin...
