Description of surroundings: After a full day of touring Rio’s sights, or enjoying the local beaches – a short taxi ride, or a 15 min climb up a short, almost forgotten stretch of cobblestoned road from Botafogo beach, will bring you back to your hideaway escape in our comfortable home surrounded by remnants of Atlantic forest. Escape the city heat with a dip in our pool shaded by Eucalyptus and Quaresma trees. Being a little higher up, we enjoy refreshing breezes when the heat in Rio becomes too much for some. Here you may truly relax and do as your heart desires.
