La Maison Rio de Janeiro (Gávea), Brazil

“Tranquil boutique retreat set in a lovely hillside mansion. Stunning views from the private terraces of equally stunning travel-inspired rooms. A fantastic pool with flamboyant cocktails to get you in the mood for the nightlife in nearby Ipanema. Stylish, romantic, unique.”

Photo of La Maison

“In Alto Gavea, somewhat off the beaten track and yet just ten minutes north of Ipanema Beach, this recently renovated, balconied colonial-style mansion clings to the side of one of Rio’s lush hills, with sumptuous views of the lagoon, the Tijuca rainforest and Christ the Redeemer statue from all around the house. The interior is an artistic evocation, inspired ‘by dreams and travel’ with five individually themed rooms recalling America, India, Asia and the Old Continent (The Tiffany Room has the biggest terrace and the The Recamier Room has the best view). Don't expect TVs and a minibars (although wi-fi is available throughout); do expect wonderful views from the pool and stylish living spaces, plus a warm welcome and practical help and advice from Jacques, the French owner. ”

“La Maison is an exceptional guesthouse run by a French passionate about Brazil. In a refined and exceptional environment in Rio, "La Maison" offers a brand new lodging experience in a calm area, just a few minutes from the beach. Offering a refuge perfectly suited to those who are seeking exclusiveness and charm, "La Maison" is also a showroom where artistic style exercise is displayed through a decoration inspired by dreams and travels.”
