About
Description
With one of the most beautiful views of Rio de Janeiro, Villa Rio makes a striking statement. It is located in a prestigious address on top of Joa's cliffs, from where one can admire the beautiful ocean More and mountains of Rio. Villa Rio achieves a harmony with nature palpable to all who stay there. Villa Rio has been recently built in accordance with the owners' commitment to environmental sustainability. It has a contemporary style, highlighting the beauty and uniqueness of local materials and Brazilian architecture. Decorated by the owners, who carefully designed the furniture and chose the objects, the extensive use of vintage wood and local stone provides a luxurious variety of textures for eye and touch alike. Sensitive site planning and native landscaping were given paramount importance when constructing this distinctive Brazilian house. The space has its own identity, intimacy and a personalized service, making the guests feel at home. From all the ambiences guests can admire the breathtaking sea view. The infinity pool blends itself with the gorgeous landscape and creates a unique postcard of Rio. All bedrooms overlook the ocean down below and from the bathrooms guests can take their shower contemplating the spectacular view. Breakfast is homemade and products are carefully selected from local producers. Villa Rio is steps away from Joatinga Beach, a paradise for surfers and nature lovers, and a short distance by taxi from Leblon and Ipanema. Less
