Hi, my name is João.
I come from Portugal and have been living in Brazil for 3 years.
Since 2013 i have been hosting foreign tourists and students in this 6 bedroom Guesthouse, located in a small favela called Chapéu Mangueira, in Leme (Copacabana).
Here you can find affordable accommodation, in comfort and safety, and also have a fantastic insight into the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, with their lively atmosphere and amzing views.
Chapéu Mangueira is a small community, with only around 3000 people, and it is really safe and friendly. It was one of the first favelas to be pacified, in 2009.
The house has a privileged location, very close to all the facilities of Leme neighborhood and the wonders of Leme beach.
I am more than happy to help my guests get around town and enjoy a truly magnificent time here, and maybe learn a little portuguese. We speak portuguese, english, spanish, french and italian.
Hope to see you soon,
