Olá, moro aqui mesmo no Rio, sou Advogado e professor de português para estrangeiros .
Very much enjoyed our stay in Floresta Country Club. The flat exceeded our expections, it was bigger than we expected (although it might get a bit cramped with more than 2 adults), was very clean, nice bathroom, good hot shower, bottled drinking water provided, basic kitchen but adequate for our needs, fridge had a small but effective freezer compartment.
The grounds of the country club are very pleasant, there is a very nice large pool area with attached restaurant ( restaurant only open weekends and holidays) technically for club members and paying customers but we used it often and were never bothered. Very secure guarded gate. Lovely trails to walk through the forest.
The flat was 15mins walk downhill to supermarket, laundry, restaurants, bars, shops etc although a taxi back is definitely recommended as it's a steep climb. There are also many buses that go to central rio and Copacabana etc from nearby.
Guilherme was an excellent host, despite his limited English he went out of his way to provide us with a netbook and wifi during our stay, he answered any questions and gave us lots of information about take-aways and taxis etc. Would definitely recommend!
Thanks Guilherme :)
Ótimo lugar, atendeu nossas espectativas, o anfitrião também nos ajudou muito, recomendo a todos.
This apartment on the 12th floor within central Rio, was ideal for the hosting of our Carnival experiance. despite being in a slightly dangerouse area, ther was security + we were a stone throw from the metro rail station and could access the surrounds of Rio within minutes.
Our host Jaime and Guilherme were very kind and answered all our questions. It was great to have tohe use of the apartment and all its facilities such as
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to actually live Rio.

Fue una muy buena estancia en el apartamento, las personas con las que compartimos el departamento eran muy amables (ilse, jaime y bruno). Nos ayudaron mucho para ubicarnos en rio. El metro esta a 2 cuadras y se llega a todos los lugares turísticos.
