The Villa is one of the only B&B in all of Rio de Janeiro from which you can enjoy a true bohemian neighborhood, the chic beaches of the south, the bustling city center, the infamous viewpoints, and the non stop nightlife - all from the luxury of a private home surrounded by a tropical garden. The newly renovated home was built in 1932 and is located on a residential street in the heart of Santa Teresa, considered by many to be the most charming cultural and historical neighborhood in Rio.
This Superior Room is a breezy corner room with a balcony and a private bathroom, located just outside the room. It has herringbone hard wood floors and is tastefully furnished with Brazilian antiques from the period of the home. There is a hammock on the center of the room from which you can gaze out onto the lush garden or through the balcony doors to the spectacular views of Sugar loaf, Guanabara Bay, Niteroi and Corcovado.
