The Space

This beautiful 1400 sq ft loft is located near the Floresta da Tijuca in Rio de Janeiro.

It boasts 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open kitchen, a large living room/dining room with breathtaking views over the forest and the Pedra da Gavea. Hosts up to 4 people comfortably. It has been recently painted off white throughout the apartment.

There is also a full gym and a 'Hollywood' swimming pool that has endless views to Barra da Tijuca and the beaches below.

Great for families and those that want to experience a different Rio. Writers, artists and photo enthusiasts will be inspired by the beautiful surroundings. Imagine waking up to colourful birds outside your bedroom window and views that go forever.

Hang gliding and paragliding are minutes away.The apartment is 5 minutes from the ramp in Sao Conrado. Depending on the thermals, you can see the sky full of gliders over the Pedra da Gavea. Tandem flights are available and can easily be arranged.

The gardens were inspired by Roberto Burle Marx, the legendary Brazilian landscape artist who created the famous Copacabana sidewalk designs and worked with Oscar Niemeyer. Numerous Brazilian 'novelas' have been filmed here in the gardens.

There is world class biking, hiking and rock climbing right outside your door. The hike up to the Pico da Tijuca is a its right next door!

The original stone house has a beautiful reception area that is perfect for a quiet yoga session.

There is a local bus that will take you to the main road where you can get various buses to get to the beaches or downtown Rio. Taxis are readily available and will pick up. 10 minutes to Barra and 20 minutes to the beaches of Ipanema by car. Easy access to World Cup and Olympic events. There are 2 covered secure parking spots in the building. I also have an old TREK mountain bike that can be used for puttering around the neighbourhood.

This is a place to get away from it all, yet be close to all of what Rio has to offer!

I have travelled a lot and I can truly say that there is nothing like this place any where in the world.

Guest Access

The main house on the property has a fully equipped gym, the key is available from the doorman. There is also a beautiful swimming pool on the property.

The Neighbourhood

If you love nature, and waking up to the sounds of birds, this is the place for you.

Hiking biking hang gliding are all close by. The Floresta da Tijuca is literally right next door.

About Owner

World traveler, mother, photographer, writer.

Why Owner chose Alto da Boa Vista

There is nothing like this property anywhere in Rio de Janeiro. The convenience and space of a house with the amenities of a condominium. The swimming pool has been used many times for filming of Brazilian soap operas. Away from the maddening crowd but a relatively quick taxi trip will get you to the famous beaches of Rio de Janeiro. A perfect getaway from the daily grind, waking up to the sounds of the birds and an amazing view over the mountains.
