Located in the center of Culture Carioca, space is a beautiful Atelier Varandão-rustic style with panoramic views of the Arcos da Lapa, Carmelite Convent, Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro and Guanabara Bay.
With access from the staircase tile Selaron, one of the main sights of the city, the visitor arrives at the Lapa district, the main center of bohemian Rio, which has many traditional pubs, concert halls, cinemas, theaters, cultural centers, etc.. A place of many blends music, cuisine and cultures where people around the world add their expressions of diversity of Brazilian culture.
In Santa Teresa, the city's most charming neighborhood, for the visitor walks in the architectures of the old houses in the sights of northern areas south of Rio de Janeiro, in the studios of local artists and learn about cultural centers, restaurants and coffee houses. The neighborhood also has direct access to the Christ the Redeemer, Tijuca Forest and Painswick.
And for those who want to visit the beaches of the south zone of Rio are just 20 minutes of walking, with bus and subway options.
The space-Varandão Workshop provides Internet, private bathrooms and has over four environments: bedroom, sitting room, breakfast room and zen. It offers breakfast and a menu of songs on vinyl - national and international. Family environment. Excellent for couples or group of friends wishing to enjoy the best of the city and relax!
Ricardo's Varandão is perfectly located, has a stunning view, and the interior décor is beautiful. He and his family are very helpful and hospitable. I highly recommend Santa Teresa in general and this place in special.
My second time in this apartment, now 5 days, again one of the best places I´ve rented, really great host Ricardo and Rachel !!!
Experience something different !
Aw man this apartment is nice!
Very good view. Very good fresh breeze of air which is much needed. Super location in the desirable Santa Teresa district and right nearby the pulsating Lapa area. The walk up the famous staircase is an exercise but it is pretty. Internet was a bit unstable, but it does work which is great. Filtered water from the tab - nice! Record collection and turntable in the room, very very nice - there is a decent collection of MPB records and some rock and pop classics too. Ricardo lives next door and is very helpful and open and speaks English. Go up the hill to the corner shop for pizzas and beer and cozy times.
The terrace is beautiful, great views over Rio. Only a few minutes walk from the Selaron steps, and walk up the hill to Santa Teresa. It's obvious that Ricardo has put a lot of thought into making the Veranda very homely, and it's full of nice little touches that give it charm. Ricardo himself was very friendly and helpful also. I'd definitely recommend this place for a romantic few nights away with the missus.
The coolest place I ever lived on a Holiday! Fantastic wiev over Rio. Downstairs, the Lapa stairs and the charming area below, uphill, Santa Thereza, with nice, pittoresk restaurant. The appartment, perfectly spotted to avoid the heat, perfectly decorate with fantastic Feng shui. The landlord, Ricardo, really cool and easy to agree with.
This is a beautiful place on the rooftop with great views over Rio and located near the famous stairs of Lapa with walking distance to the restaurants up in Santa Teresa. Ricardo is also very helpful, the only problem we had was a very wifi connection throughout our stay.
We had a very good experience at the atelier, with Ricardo as host. The view is to die for, but it gets a bit noisy soince there are no windows on one side. We recomend it to persons who have no problem with the climb up there (10 min. upwards), and who do not want to do too advanced cooking because the kitchen is a little poor.
Amazing chill out location in the center of Lapa, perfect to enjoy the authentic life of Rio. Easy and nice contact with Ricardo. Experience to recommend.
La terrasse est vraiment géniale et très ventilée, la vue est superbe et l'endroit est très bien décoré. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'endroit, un peu bruyant le week-end (vendredi et samedi) mais normal nous sommes aux abords de la LAPA. Il faut juste prendre des boules quies. On a vraiment eu besoin de rien dans cet endroit, tout est mis à disposition et les hôtes sont vraiment très discrets et très sympas! Je recommande cet endroit pour les gens qui veulent être prêt des quartiers du Centre, Lapa, Santa Teresa, etc… L'accès aux moyens de communications est également très facile.
This place is absolutely incredible!! We loved staying here and Ricardo was really helpful. The only problem is that it's so nice you almost don't want to leave it and actually explore the city...
Lapa is also a great area and it is great being so close to it.
