Looking for leisure-filled stays in the tropics? Fazenda Recanto Dos Carvalhos, a rural Minas Gerais site 20 minutes' drive from São Lourenço, is a family-friendly spot that fits that description (with some spectacular mountain views thrown in for good measure). Guests at this security-conscious park have access to a spacious leisure area with a swimming pool, sauna and natural waterfall for hours of swimming, soaking and steaming. Elsewhere around the site are a selection of sports facilities including a football field, volleyball court and tennis court, and a games room where the competition can continue over a game of pool or table football. If that's all a bit much, take a rod down to the fishing lake or settle in to the TV room for a telenovela or two. Time to explore? Head into São Lourenço (20 minutes’ drive) for bike hire, hot air balloon rides or coffee plantation tours. Staff on site have the lowdown on these and other activities, so feel free to pick their brains before setting off to make sure you know what you're up to. Come feeding time, a shared kitchen is on hand with barbecue grills, a woodfired stove and dedicated pizza oven. Rather leave the cooking to someone else? Head into São Lourenço for eateries serving tasty local grub.

Local attractions

São Lourenço (20 minutes' drive) is a rather special spot, especially for those seeking mineral cures. The town's 400-square-metre park is home to seven natural springs which, around these parts, are said to have medicinal properties. Guests who emerge reinvigorated from their spa bath can serenely make their way to the skating rink or the town's huge lake with pedal boats and kayaks for hire. Fans of unusual transport will also find plenty of options here: the Teleférico de São Lourenço is a cable car with spectacular vistas (which can also be taken in from the lookout platform), while the retro Trem das Águas (Water Train) runs out of the town’s station and along a scenic stretch of the river Verde down to the nearby town of Soledade de Minas (journey time around two hours). In need for some nature therapy to disconnect from all those cogs and wheels? Hike up the Montanha Sagrada (Sacred Mountain) that overlooks São Lourenço for hilltop views and big, big skies. Travelling with wee ones in tow? Take them down to the Lagoa Seca activity farm (25 minutes) for hands-on lessons about rural life.
