Fodor's Review

A visit to this impeccably restored 1930s fazenda is like stepping back in time to the golden age of the cacao boom. The cocoa plantation hosts daily experiences where visitors learn how cacao is cultivated and processed during a dynamic and interactive tour that includes exploring the grounds, sampling fresh cacao, and a hands-on demo in the chocolate factory. The four-hour tour includes transport from Itacaré. Don't miss staying for a delicious farmhouse-style lunch at the villa's historical pousada and restaurant, where you can also stay overnight in one of the nine rooms (starting from R$495 for two, including breakfast and dinner). Visits can also be arranged via Vila Rosa's chocolate store on Rua Pituba in the center of Itacaré
