Lovely, 2 BR with Sugar Loaf view
- Smoking Allowed
A stylish and spacious 2-bedroom apartment in a modern building situated on a quiet cobblestone street in the historic neighbourhood of Catete. The apartment is on the 6th floor, -effectively the 8th as there are two parking levels- and is at the front of the building, facing Guanabara bay. The building has a manned reception from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. The well-laid out accomodation comprises two double bedrooms (one with en-suite bathroom) two balconies, a guest bathroom, a living room with dining area and a spacious and well-equipped kitchen with adjacent utility (URL HIDDEN) apartment is bright, well-ventilated and only gets morning sun, always a plus in a tropical climate. It is situated about 150 metres up a hill and benefits from cooling sea breezes even on the hottest of summer days when the temperature can reach 40°c. Catete is one of several middle-class neighbourhoods which flank Guanabara bay to the south of the city centre. It´s a vibrant and safe area, extremely popular with Brazilian tourists who take advantage of the wide variety of accommodation for all budgets. As well as offering a more authentic Rio experience than the better known (and more expensive) areas of Copacabana and Ipanema, Catete´s central location makes it an ideal base to explore Rio. With two Metrô stations within a ten minute walk of the apartment it´s easy to get around - the city centre, Copacabana and Ipanema can all reached within 20 minutes on the Metrô, whilst the nightlife of Lapa is a 10 minute taxi ride away. Closer to hand, within a 15 minute walk of the apartment, is the magnificent Parque do Flamengo, easily the largest park in the densely populated Zona Sul.The park extends for 7 kms along the bayside and includes a 1km beach with the Sugar Loaf mountain as a backdrop. The park is the perfect spot for walking, jogging, cycling and sunbathing although the bay is not currently recommended for bathing due to high pollution levels. Within easy walking district of the apartment, in Catete and the neighbouring Largo do Machado, there are numerous shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and banks. The local bakery/self-service restaurant and greengrocers/general store are located at the foot of the hill, about 150 metres away. The apartment is also available for monthly rental for a minimum period of 3 months.
