The house is closed, under reconstruction, but even in the guest house - 500m before the villa - no one told us... I was very disappointed after 4 km walking up in the forest, 36 Celsius and in a sudden storm!

Niemeyer is already for 8 decades a living monument of contemporary architecture. His personal family house dates from the early fifties and shows clearly his love for curves and the female body.

Casa das Canoas is marvelous, even more so at night. We attended a gala event as a trip celebration prepared by the group we were guests with. In this regards, the site itself was amazing. Whatever catering and food service they hired was also spectacular. The area is wonderful at night and seeing the different areas and architectural lines filled... More

There was no one around, the pool was filled but very green water and leaves, as if it had been unattended for a long time. We poked around from a... More

Please note that the web address linked to this landmark is wrong - it goes to another "Casa das Canoas" in Rio - but not the one designed by Oscar Niemeyer. I have not visited the Casa das Canoas but would love to one day. (to tripadvisor - feel free to delete my review as I have not been there)

This was the first thing I visited when discovering Rio de Janeiro. And it was absolutely the right choice. Niemeyer is already for 8 decades a living monument of contemporary architecture. His personal family house dates from the early fifties and shows clearly his love for curves and the female body. It's located in the middle of a vast domain... More
