The total area of the property is 89 acres (about 36 hectares). It has 3,000 metres of unpaved roads and paths starting from the weir beside the pond, small areas of secondary forest, fields and fine views from the highest spot at an altitude of about 1,400 metres. An orchard, chicken coop, apiary and kitchen garden help assure excellent cuisine.
All the water used by Pousada dos Anjos is mineral water from the Cubatão aquifer, drawn from a 186-metre well drilled into granite bedrock. Water quality is certified by Hidrolabor. The chalet on stilts (Palafita) is supplied by water from a conventional well. An old water wheel pumps water from the pond to irrigate the gardens and pasture. The highest building has a lightning conductor.
All chalets and suites have solar water heaters and heat insulation. Some have cable TV with DVD player. The mountain air is always cool and there is no need for air conditioning.
The electricity supply is 110V, three-phase, with new internal wiring and circuit breakers of first-class material. All chalets and suites have one 220V outlet.
There is no antenna coverage for conventional cellular phones but the hotel has a fixed cellular system (Ruralcel) for emergencies. Internal communications are via two-way radio (walkie-talkie).
The hotel has its own laundry, carpentry shop and computer system for routine services, with technical assistance provided by outside specialists for planning and appliance maintenance.
A small analogue photographic darkroom is available to develop and print black-and-white photographs. The hotel has a good digital workstation for internal use.
There is a compost heap for organic waste, which is mixed with cattle dung and processed by California redworm (Eisenia foetida). The compost is used as manure for the orchard and gardens. Night soil is treated by ecological septic tanks, enabling water reuse without environmental damage.
