About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6, priced per room

Mountain resort accommodations are available for World Cup lodging at the Santa Edwiges complex that consists of a main house and nearby suite. Between them, they have a large salon with comfortable sofas, woodstove, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, lovely veranda, wi-fi, and laundry facilities.

Also available for use on the grounds are a ball court, swimming pool, table tennis room, gazebo, beautiful grounds, and parking for two or more cars. The Santa Edwiges complex, located within walking distance of the Serra dos Órgãos National Park, has tropical fauna and flora, including more than twenty fruit-bearing trees. Among them are lime, jack-fruit, persimmon, avocado, plum and mulberry, in addition to banana and cane. Also available nearby are activities such as hiking, horseback riding, mountain climbing, shopping, a world class arts and crafts fair, fine dining, and numerous other historic and artistic pursuits.

The Edwiges complex, located at some 3300 ft MSLs, enjoys mountain breezes and temperatures some 15 deg F lower than the city of Rio. Because of its favorable altitude and climate, it was chosen as the training site for the Brazilian national soccer team, which will be in training in the Bairro of Comary, some 2 miles away, during the Copa do Mundo.

A typical Brazilian breakfast will be provided, and the manager can arrange with locals to provide meals, laundry, guide and taxi service for a negotiable fee. Direct inter-city bus service to Rio is available, and guests could either rent a car or hire a day-long taxi (very economical for 4 riders) for the round trip to the seven games, including the final, that will be held in Maracaná Stadium.
