The space
This lovely 2-bedroom duplex in the fascinating neighborhood of Vidigal has a mind-blowing view of the Rio coastline and islands, Leblon/Ipanema, and even the Corcovado. Come wake up to the sun, sea, and mountains with a view that you can only get from Vidigal!

This is a third-floor walk-up, with an old-fashioned spiral staicase from the kitchen/living/dining rooms up to the bedrooms and bathroom. With both rooms and the large and comfortable sofa bed, this place can accommodate up to four people.

Vidigal is a unique neighborhood; formerly an upscale suburb of Ipanema/Leblon, the favela slowly crept down from up on the hill over many years, making the area a lively mix of middle- and lower-class citizens with very good building stock. Recently, however, the Rio police have completely pacified the neighborhood and cleared out all traces of criminal influence, and the hill is experiencing a wonderful renewal.

A short walk to the bottom of the hill provides access to busses and cheaper, private minibus service to most parts of the city. Fifteen minutes on foot brings you to Leblon, or simply enjoy the secluded "Sheraton Beach" just around the corner.

Also, don't forget to take the chance to enjoy the regionally famous Feijoada, a decadent traditional Saturday lunch of pork cooked with black beans, with lots of soul-food side dishes. You'll need a nap when you're done!

Guest access
There is a nice area in the front of the building Pedra Bonita and also in the back of the reception. There you can see the beautiful view of the sea.

Other things to note
Please don't smoke in the bedrooms.
Smoking is allowed in the living room with windows wide open.
No pets but we can talk about it, if it's a special case.

If you like hiking, you have to get on this track to the top of "Dois Irmãos" hill, one of Rio's most beautiful view. It's not difficult and not a long way up there.

Se você gosta de trilhas, o Vidigal é o lugar certo para se hospedar. Um das vistas mais espetaculares do Rio está na trilha ao topo do "Dois Irmãos", aquela montanha que parece inacessível que você avista da praia do arpoador, ipanema e leblon não é tão dificil de acessar quanto parece. Ficando no bairro do Vidigal você já tem acesso a trilha com muito mais facilidade e mesmo sem guia, perguntado aos simpáticos moradores da comunidade você cherá ao topo com facilidade.
