It is always a great pleasure to stay in this beautiful property in the heart of Santa Teresa, enhanced by a careful restoration. I remember pleasant moments of tranquility and relaxation, even in the middle of the carnival. Friendly staff.

Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
