The space

Beautiful 19th century house with a view of the city. 16-square-meter room with double bed. Terrace with jacuzzi and sauna. internet access. Price includes (URL HIDDEN) pets. Owned by gay man with teenage adopted son. Portuguese, English, Spanish and German spoken.

The district of Santa Teresa started next to a convent on Morro do Desterro, Rio de Janeiro, in the 18th century.
Located high on a hill, surrounded by other hills like the one featuring the
famous Christ's statue, bordering the biggest urban forest of the world, the area enjoys cooler, fresher air than most of Rio, and it offers an oasis of peace and quiet just inside Rio.

Set on a hillside in the center of the city, it seems to have stopped in time maintaining, as it has for decades, preserved features of Old Rio and a bit of history in each corner.

Writers and artists have always been seduced by the district’s call to internal life and to its architectural and cultural treasures, visible to the eye and cherished by the heart. A symbol of counterculture and of the art shown in its many studios and ateliers, any artistic expression finds its home in Santa, as its admirers prefer to call it. Everything that exists in Santa Teresa and that is known about it is also part of the history of Rio. To the visitor, however, it seems like a place apart with its own characteristics.

The narrow and winding streets with the old tramcars, the last to be found in the whole of Brazil, are one more singular attraction. The charming vehicles, which date from the 19th century, were moved by animal traction at first and later by electricity. Survivors of romantic times, they are now protected as historical heritage and still go along perfectly preserved tracks taking visitors to a re-reading of the past.

Better still, all this tranquility is 5 minutes from Lapa, the bohemian neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro.

Angelo is a wonderful host, and his home is special. We felt welcomed as soon as we arrived. The views are spectacular, the bed very comfortable, and the hammock relaxing. This was our first trip to Rio, and we'll back here when we return.
