This lovely studio is ideally situated on a nice tree-lined street that connects the districts of Copacabana and Ipanema, two of Rio's best neighbourhoods, and with everything you might need within walking distance ! Located on the 7th and last floor (elevator goes up to the 6th), with a partial view of the sea and overlooking a garden, the flat is very bright, airy and tranquil (sounds of waves and birds singing instead of cars buzzing, and maybe you'll even see some small monkeys hopping among the trees!... ) The building is well maintained and very safe, equipped with security cameras, and has a team of smiling and helpful porters 24hrs a day.

Located on the 7th and last floor (elevator goes up to the 6th), with a partial view of the sea and overlooking a garden, the flat is very bright, airy and tranquil (sounds of waves and birds singing instead of cars buzzing, and maybe you'll even see some small monkeys hopping among the trees!... ) The building is well maintained and very safe, equipped with security cameras, and has a team of smiling and helpful porters 24hrs a day. You can also enjoy the building's lovely, peaceful green courtyard, rarely used by other residents. Recently renovated, this studio has a small but well equipped kitchen (with a 2-burners steel gas hob, fridge, microwave, small electric oven, coffee maker, toaster, juicer, cookware and all basic kitchen utensils and cutlery ; a bathroom with shower / WC / hair dryer and toiletries. The atmosphere is cosy, tastefully decorated, with air conditioning, two ceiling fans, cable TV 32'', high speed Internet, Wi-Fi, telephone (with free calls to local landlines). Equipped with a comfortable double bed and a couch with pull-out bed, it is an ideal flat for a couple but can accommodate up to 4 persons. Sheets and towels (high quality, all pure cotton) provided, as well as beach towels and ironing equipment. The neighbourhood is fantastic : a few steps gets you to the beautiful Ipanema beach (Posto 8) on one side, a 6-8 min walk gets you to the most picturesque part of Copacabana beach (Posto 6) on the other side. And the area has many transportation facilities (buses, taxis, bike rental, subway is 8 minutes far), as well as supermarkets, drugstores, laundries, banks, shops, and a large variety of cafés and restaurants. The owners speak fluent English, French, Spanish and some Italian (besides Portuguese, of course), and try to adjust, as much as possible, guests' arrival and departure times in a flexible manner. Living quite near the studio, we deal with our guests directly (key exchanges, showing how the house ''works'', trying to respond to their needs the most we can - with no agents in between!..) and even if we also like to give them the privacy they require we are always glad to answer any questions they might have and help them in getting the best out of their stay in Rio. We also welcome our guests in a flexible manner, fitting in with their arrival and departure times as much as possible. Let yourself be seduced by this charming and very pleasant studio, an ideal place for a great stay in Rio ! About the NEIGHBOURHOOD : - If you turn left from our building, a short walk gets you to the beautiful Ipanema beach, bordered by the Arpoador rocks at one end, and by Leblon beach on the other, with the towering twin peaks of Morro Dois Irmãos (Two Brothers hills) framing the beach scene in a spectacular way. Arpoador is one of the main surfing spots of the city and it's rocks are lined with walking trails, which afford some stunning views over Rio´s coastline. It is also considered to be one of the best places in town to admire the sunset over Rio's sea and gorgeous mountains. Right in front of Arpoador Beach, you will find Parque Garota de Ipanema (Girl from Ipanema Park), a nice green space viewing the sea, which has a playground area for children, gym equipments and a bike path leading to the Copacabana Fort. -If you turn right from our building, a 6-8 min walk gets you to the most picturesque part of Copacabana Beach, Posto 6, with its shadowy trees and a small fishing market (“Colônia dos Pescadores”) where fishermen sell their daily catch directly from colourful wooden boats. Posto 6 is a very pleasant place where the sea is rather calm most of the time, which makes it a favourite for families with small children as well as for those wanting to practice stand-up paddle. Right next to it stands the Copacabana Fort, which is not only worthwhile visiting but also a beautiful and peaceful place to admire the sea while sipping a drink or having a meal in one of its two good café-restaurants. Actually, Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon beaches are segmented every few hundred yards by “Postos” (life guard stations) that range from 1 to 12 (1 to 6 in Copacabana, 7 to 12 in Ipanema-Leblon). These Postos are the most common landmarks on the beach, providing showers and toilets, and serve as a meeting place for locals and tourists. All along these two beaches, you will find plenty of gym equipments and sports activities such as football, volley ball, foot-volley, beach tennis, stand-up paddle, wind surf, kite-surf, etc. Rio's beachfronts are also lined with many kiosks that range from simple ones serving fresh coconut water, beverages and snacks to more chic ones and even Champagne bars… These are great places to lounge and just watch the world go by… ———————————EN FRANÇAIS Charmant studio, idéalement situé entre les quartiers de Copacabana et Ipanema, deux des meilleurs quartiers de Rio. Entièrement rénové, il est à la fois très lumineux et silencieux, avec vue partielle sur la mer et vue sur jardin (sans bruits de voitures donc, mais plutôt ceux des vagues et des chants d'oiseaux ; et, peut-être même, que vous verrez des petits singes sautillant sur les arbres !…). Il se trouve au 7ème et dernier étage (ascenseur jusqu'au 6ème) d'un immeuble très bien tenu et sécurisé, avec de serviables et sympathiques gardiens présents 24h/24h. Vous pourrez aussi profiter de son très joli et agréable jardin, rarement utilisé par les autres résidents. Ce studio est doté de tout le confort pour un séjour réussi : une petite cuisine indépendante (avec frigobar, four à microondes, petit four électrique, une plaque à gaz 2 feux, cafetière, grille-pains, et tous les ustensiles de base et couverts) ; une salle de bains avec douche/WC, sèche-cheveux, produits de toilette. L'ambiance est « cosy », décoré avec soin, équipé d'air conditionné, deux ventilateurs de plafond, TV à câble 32', Internet haut débit, Wi-Fi, un téléphone fixe (avec appels gratuits vers les téléphones fixes locaux). Doté d'un confortable lit double et d'un canapé avec lit gigogne, il est idéal pour un couple mais peut accueillir jusqu'à 4 personnes. Draps et serviettes de toilette (en pur coton) fournis, ainsi que du matériel de repassage et des produits d'entretien. La localisation est superbe : vous serez à quelques pas de la plage de Ipanema (Posto 8) d'un côté, 6-8 minutes à pied de la partie la plus pittoresque de la plage de Copacabana (Posto 6) de l'autre. Situé dans une zone très bien desservie par les transports en commun (arrêts de bus, stations de taxi, location de vélos, le métro est à 8 min au plus), vous y trouverez aussi tous les commerces de proximité (supermarché, pharmacie, banques, laveries, boutiques, restaurants, etc.). Les propriétaires parlent couramment français, anglais, et espagnol (et se débrouillent assez bien en italien…) Habitant relativement près du studio, nous tenons à accueillir nos hôtes nous-mêmes (pour leur donner les clefs, leur montrer le “mode d'emploi” de la maison, répondre à leurs questions - sans agents au milieu!...) et, tout en respectant la privacité dont ils ont sûrement besoin, nous sommes toujours heureux de pouvoir les aider à profiter au maximum de leur séjour à Rio. Aussi, nous essayons d'être, dans la mesure du possible, très souples quant aux heures d'arrivée et de départ de nos hôtes, si le calendrier nous le permet (tout dépend, bien évidemment, de l'heure d'arrivée et de départ des hôtes précédents et suivants). Laissez-vous séduire par ce studio de charme, très agréable à vivre et idéal pour passer un séjour exceptionnel à Rio, en couple ou entre amis. LE QUARTIER La localisation est superbe : - En sortant de l'immeuble à gauche, quelques pas vous conduisent à la belle plage de Ipanema ('Posto 8'), bordée par les rochers d'Arpoador d'un côte, et par la plage de Leblon de l'autre, avec le Morro Dois Irmãos (les “Deux Frères”) clôturant le paysage de façon spectaculaire. Arpoador est une plage très recherchée par les surfeurs et de petits sentiers serpentent les rochers d'où l'on peut apprécier la vue sur les côtes de Copacabana et de Ipanema. C'est aussi le meilleur endroit pour admirer (et applaudir !) le coucher du soleil. Juste devant la plage d'Arpoador se trouve le Parc Garota de Ipanema, un agréable espace vert surplombant la mer et doté d'un playground pour enfants, d'équipements de gym et d'une voie cycliste allant jusqu'au Fort de Copacabana. - En sortant de l'immeuble à droite, en 6-8 minutes à pied vous serez à l'extrême sud de la plage de Copacabana (''Posto 6''), qui est sa partie la plus pittoresque, avec des petits bateaux de pêcheurs tout en couleurs stationnés sous les arbres et un vivant marché aux poissons tous les matins. Posto 6 est aussi un endroit très agréable et paisible, où la mer est plutôt calme, ce qui rend cette partie de la plage très recherchée par les familles avec des enfants et par les pratiquants de stand-up paddle. Juste à côté du marché aux poissons, se trouve le Fort de Copacabana qui non seulement mérite une visite, comme c'est un endroit privilégié pour admirer la mer tout en sirotant un apéritif ou en mangeant dans l'un de ses deux bons cafés-restaurants. En fait, les plages de Copacabana, Ipanema et Leblon sont balisées par les ''Postos'' (de 1 à 6 à Copacabana, de 7 à 12 à Ipanema-Leblon), où se trouvent les maitre-nageurs qui surveillent la baignade, des toilettes et des douches. Notez que tout au long de ces plages, vous trouverez (le jour comme la nuit !) des équipements pour faire de la gym ainsi que toute sorte d'activités sportives (football, volley ball, foot-volley, tennis de plage, windsurf, kitesurf, etc.) Vous y trouverez aussi une grande variété de kiosques, allant du plus simple, qui vend de l'eau de coco fraiche, boissons et snacks, au plus sophistiqués (repas, vins, champagnes...) du côté de Copacabana.More
