View over Santa Teresa

We are 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.


Mingle with the eccentric residents and enjoy the Bohemian flavour and authentic, non-touristy experience.  Within 5 minutes walk from our house you'll find a great variety of restaurants, bars, music, cultural centers and museums.


We are well served by local buses and taxis, and the nearest Metro is Gloria station.


The main sights of Rio are only a short taxi ride away:


Sugar Loaf and Christ Statue - 15 minutes (20 Reais)

Copacabana - 20 minutes (25 Reais)

Ipanema 35 minutes (30 Reais)

Lapa for nightlife and Samba music - 10 minutes (10-15 Reais)
