Location: This enchanting Rio de Janeiro penthouse for rent is located in Urca, the safest neighborhood of the city, and one of the most beautiful. This oceanfront district is home to one of the symbols of Rio, the outstanding Sugarloaf, that literally shades the terrace of this ravishing apartment. Also the second symbol of the city, the Corcovado Christ, dominating the bay of Urca, is clearly visible from the top terrace of the apartment. At a few steps from the penthouse you have two beaches: the beach of Urca and the tiny “Praia Vermelha”, maybe the most charming beach of Rio. Near the apartment you will also find a supermarket Zona Sul, ATMs and good restaurants. Copacabana is less than 10 minutes by car, and Ipanema about 15. The penthouse is on the third floor of a building with elevator and 24h doorman security.
Interiors & Style: The apartment, just restored, is on two levels. On the lower floor is a nice living room furnished with a sofa, a traditional wooden library and antique prints on the walls (this area can be completely closed and used as a double bedroom). Close to the living room there is the dining room, with a round table with chairs and a wide window overlooking the nice buildings in front of the apartment. The kitchen is well equipped, with fridge, freezer, oven, washing machine, blender, coffee machine and iron and board. On the same floor is the sleeping area, with a double and a single room, and a bathroom. A spiral staircase connects the living room to the attic floor. This floor is the true highlight of the apartment: the Sugarloaf mountain is the breathtaking background to a second ravishing living room, extremely bright, with a large sofa and cable TV. Covered with tropical trees, the Pão de Açucar is also a nature reserve, so from this living room all you hear is the chirping of birds. On the same floor there is also a bathroom with shower.
