Located in the heart of Rio’s charming historic quarter Santa Teresa. Often referred to as the “Montmartre of Rio”, Santa Teresa is a mix of cobblestone streets, colonial houses and panoramic views.
This little house is set among large tropical gardens where small monkeys, humming birds, and toucans make their home among the fruit trees and many rare plants and flowers.
The governor of Rio de Janeiro used to live in this charming house which has been transformed into a small pousada of five bedrooms, including a separate house, a bungalow and a swimming pool. The bungalow and the villa are at the top of the garden. Privacy is assured as the guests have their own entrance and keys.
Just 5 minutes walk from the house you can enjoy a plethora of bars and restaurants, cultural centres and museums. And Rio’s main attractions are a short taxi ride away. The nearest Metro is Gloria station.
The owners are a family of expats who will go out of their way to make sure you make the most of the city!
