Rent my 3 bed ApartmentSouth Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The apartment is light and airy, decorated with simplicity and taste. It has 2 spacious bedrooms, one of them equipped with air-conditioning and both of them with ceiling fans. It has a winter garden overlooking Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer, which we can appreciate lying in a hammock. There is also a living room with cable TV and Wi-Fi.. The apartment is well ventilated and accommodates four people comfortably (one bedroom has a double bed, the other has 2 single beds). Exceptionally, we can arrange for extra guests (specially for families).
The apartment is located in Praça São Salvador, which has a lively social and artistic life, with jam sessions (“rodas”) of choro, samba and blues. On weekend mornings, art and antique fairs take place. The square is located between the districts of Laranjeiras and Flamengo - residential areas, with varied stores, several restaurants, services, cinemas etc. at walking distance. The apartment is two blocks away from Praia do Flamengo e Aterro (Parque) do Flamengo : the park is much used for leisure activities, hiking, picnics, sports, or just some coconut water. There is also a bike path connecting the park to the beaches of Botafogo, Urca (where Sugar Loaf is) and Copacabana. It is also close of two stations of Bike Rio (www.movesamba.com.br/bikerio/), a practical and cheap bicycle rental system than the locals use intensively for tours and transportation. We are two blocks from Largo do Machado Metro station, which binds to most of the tourist attractions of Rio (twenty minutes by subway to Maracanã, 3 stations away from Copacabana, 5 stations to Ipanema, 3 stations to Lapa, traditional bohemian neighborhood in downtown Rio). There are also bus lines, one, 2 and 3 blocks away, and a taxi rank right on the corner.
