Origin The Name Arcadia Exists? How We Think How We Act
The old plot of Convento Arcádia
How did Convento Arcádia come to pass?

A German native, Olaf had already studied, worked and lived in a couple of countries when he first came to travel to Brazil. On his second trip to the country, at the turn of the year 2006/2007, he took his first kite lesson in Jericoacoara and continued backpacking downwind with a number of friends, until they arrived in Atins. It took them two days and about R$35 each for the 600km. At the time, Atins had four pousadas to choose from; yet, traveling on a shoestring the crew decided to camp on the beach. A rapid love affair with the village evolved, a plot of land was bought in 2008 and in 2015 Olaf took the big step, to leave his then native London (UK) and a well-paid job behind to move to Brazil, learn Portuguese and to figure out what to do with this stake in paradise. Soon after, in 2016/2017, Convento Arcádia was born as a holiday house and from there, step by step, grew into what it is today.
