We love it here, you will too!
Welcome to our peaceful refuge!
How we think and feel
Based on a lasting love for the marvelous village of Atins, its nature and people, the Convento first came to the fore in 2016 as a holiday house. We now extended our services and continue to transform the large terrain into a beautiful garden in which our guests will find a tranquil, relaxing and personal experience of a home away from home. We think long term, our emphasis is on attending families and Kite or Yoga groups and creating long lasting relationships with our clients to welcome them back many times in the future.
In doing so we concern ourselves with reducing our impact on nature and the ecosystem of the Lençóis Maranhenses to the best of our abilities as well as promoting and supporting the overall sustainable development of the local community and economy.
