Location: La Ferme de Georges is located in the charming village of Atins in the state of Maranhao, Brazil. The hotel is on the other side of the village when coming from the river, at the very edge of the natural park of Lençóis Maranhenses.
How to get here: There are two options:
Fly to Sao Luis (SLZ). Here you have to take a land transfer till Barreirinhas, and then a boat transfer on Rio Preguicas till Cabure, followed by another boat crossing to Atins. Distances are long and an overnight in Barreirinhas would be needed to break the journey.
Fly to Jijoca (JJD) or to Fortaleza (FOR). Coming from the other side takes a longer time and also requires at least one overnight in Parnaiba or Barra Grande, to break the journey. Then you would continue by road to Tutoia and Cabure, followed by a boat crossing to Atins.
Structure: La Ferme de Georges is a luxury hotel that has only seven beautifully designed chalets that can accommodate up to four guests which comes perfectly in hand for families travelling with children. The chalets are placed on the hills with great views. From the bungalow’s tower, you can watch the sunset over the sea and sand dunes whilst enjoying a view of the constellation of the Southern Cross. A generator allows a luxury to deal with potential power cuts as Atins is quite remote and these things happen here.
