Rio De Janeiro has recently been voted in a top travel survey the best Global Destination. Also it has the highest visitor satisfaction rating (92%) of any where in the world! Rio (a city that,even within Brazil, is the most 'Brazilian' of cities) is also a very culturally rich society with a strong theater tradition,great modern artists,the center of the telenovela and media industries,an extraordinary and diverse musical heritage and a strong intellectual history involving great writers and architects.It is also fascinating to observe the vast changes Rio is currently undergoing.The speed and scale in urban regeneration is unprecedented among any major world city in modern times.
Ipanema is almost like a small kingdom set apart.The timeless life style associated with such easy access to such an extraordinary beach is very seductive.Now safer than ever,quite simply Ipanema is in a class of it's own.It's where Brazil looks for new trends and is a show place for the nation.It is classic,eternal Rio and the energy is palpable. It is the Rio of your dreams!Tom Jobim wrote "The Girl from Ipanema" while living in this street in 1962 (a plaque commemorates this at no. 107). Although taxis are plentiful and inexpensive being so well located means you can walk to all the restaurants, sights and nightlife for which Ipanema is so famous. Positioned in a calm, residential street canopied with trees adorned with orchids, this duplex penthouse is located in an exclusive area referred to by locals as the "noble" area of Ipanema. Being to the left of Rua Vininius de Morais this is seen to be the safest part of Ipanema, not being in the "shadow" of any favela.Also it has a calmer aspect than the edgier,more commercial eastern borders of Ipanema around General Osorio Square/metro.There are also 2 secured parking spaces within the building available to you which is useful if you rent a car or have Brazilian friends visiting by car.
