Dating from 1835, São Luiz da Boa Sorte Farm is the result of the union of two important properties of the Coffee Cycle, the farms of São Luiz and Boa Sorte which belonged to the brothers Gomes Ribeiro de Avelar.

After a thorough restoration carried out in the 2000s by architects João Reis and Gilmar Peres, the farm today invests in rural tourism. It offers guided visits to its rooms decorated with a collection of furniture from the 18th and 19th centuries.

One of the main attractions of the tour is the prince's room, created to receive the Count D'Eu, Princess Isabel's husband, on his visit to the city of the Barons of Coffee in 1876. Other charms are the priest and the maiden's room, the soiree room, the porch alcove, the equestrian center and centenary palm trees donated by the former Court, adorning the entrance of the headquarters property.
