La Maison a Rio
In the suburb of Gavea (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
A beautiful and stylish house on the side of the hill, overlooking a wealthy suburb of Rio, and with a fine view of Corcovado statue. It is just 10 minutes by taxi up from Ipanema and is owned and managed by a charming Frenchman.
There are just five bedrooms in this hotel, and each is decorated differently, and very eclectically. There is a small pool and lovely terrace in the garden, candle-lit as dusk falls. Food is delicious, and there is much attention to detail.
A charming boutique hotel, which would be very interesting for a visitor who has been to Rio before, and who would be keen to experience life away from the beach and traditional tourist zones.
