Wow - what a great find! Villa Laurinda was the last stop on our tour of South America and it was the icing on the cake. We loved Rio and especially loved this elegant B&B with its really comfortable bed and generous breakfast. A great deal in what must surely be Rio's best location. We recommend it!

Staying at Villa Laurinda in Santa Teresa was a whole new experience though, which I am glad I have tried! The place is magnificent, a hidden treasure up in the hill, away from all the madness of Rio's (too...

I could not have chosen a better place to stay in Rio! Santa Teresa is the most charming area I have been in the city. And Villa Laurinda surprised me with its grandiosity – a gorgeous old mansion with a large garden – yet with a feeling of warmth and coziness. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful!

I loved to stay at Villa Laurinda. The place is amazing, a really beautiful house up on the green hill of Santa Teresa with a very helpful and kind staff that offers good advice and the best hidden tips in town. The price is very fair for the great service that this B&B offers. I certainly recommend Villa Laurinda.
