The Space

This traditional 2 bedroom apartment lies in the quiet residential area of Catete/Gloria, in one of the oldest parts of Rio de Janiero, with wonderful views across the city to the Christ. It is very close to public transport to the City Centre via the Metro and bus, so is well placed for events like Carnaval, conferences, and tourism. It is surrounded by old-style private houses, quiet cobbled streets, and small bars, and sits on a small hill with a colonial era church on top – the street has been used by Brazilian TV companies as a location for historical dramas. The house is close to Flamengo beach (15 minutes walk). 5 minutes walk to the Metro (Catete/Gloria), halfway between the city centre and the beach areas of Ipanema, Botafogo and Copacabana. Taxis from the Metro take only 5 minutes to the house. The cultural quarter of Lapa is a few minutes walk away, with its famous bars, music clubs (samba, forro, choro, jazz etc), restaurants, antique shops and nightlife. It is close to a wide range of shops and malls, cafes, banks, museums etc. In many ways, this quiet area has all the charm of the more famous Santa Teresa, but is much closer to city centre transport and shopping, as well as the beach areas.

The accommodation is on the first floor, with communal entrance hall and stairs leading up the apartment entrance, and a living/ dining room, two large bedrooms, large shower bathroom, and a good-sized kitchen with gas cooker and fridge freezer. The bedrooms overlook the city with views across to the famous Cristo on the hill above Copcabana. Secure entrance from the street, free parking on the street.
