The 18th century colonial-style main house officially became a hotel in 1932, when it was first registered as a family inn. However, Admiral José de Siqueira Villa Forte and his wife, Dona Dalila, had been regularly receiving family friends as guests and charging them to cover their costs as early as 1918. To this day the property is managed by their descendants.
Remnants from the time of the coffee barons are all still there: the large main house, the old mill, the train station. The slaves quarters, although preserved, are open to guests at Farm Hotel Villa Forte. Same as with many other farms after the coffee economy collapsed, the old Paraíba Valley property has been turned into an inn and now has become a tourist attraction.
The farm hotel is located in Engenheiro Passos, within the Resende district, in the southernmost mountain region of the state of Rio de Janeiro.
