The space

Built before the turn of the century, this fully-renovated historical landmark mansion located in the artistic Santa Teresa neighborhood offers a variety of rooms suited for the traveler seeking an authentic Carioca experience!


GREAT LOCATION
This colonial mansion is located close to the heart of the city and walking distance to bus lines and the Gloria metro station for convenient access to all the major tourist hotspots of Rio. Public transportation can be accessed nearly 24hrs a day.

Ipanema and Copacabana beaches are only 15 minutes away by taxi, and can be easily reached via public transportation as well. Lapa, the famous bohemian nightlife scene, is only a 15min walk away. Some of the most famous sights in Rio are only minutes away from the house - the art collector Raimundo Otoni Castro May's Chácara do Céu mansion, Parque das Ruinas, Lapa's nightlife, and Chilean-born artist Jorge Selarón's famous tiled steps.

Supermarkets, coffee shops and lounges are all located nearby as well as a healthy combination of fine dining and budget friendly restaurants. There is also a well-regarded farmer's market every Sunday at the bottom of the hill and offers some of the freshest fruits and vegetables in the city!

Santos Dumont Airport for domestic flights is only 10 min away by taxi, where there is a direct bus link to the Galeao International Airport.
