My husband and I have both travelled individually and separately around the world for work and play. Of all of the places that we have stayed, this spot impressed and exceeded all of our expectations.
The home is gorgeous (we loved the bungalow!) and Elana is so helpful in providing information about Rio and all that the city has to offer (and how to navigate well) The history and care put into the restored engineers home is the crown of staying at this place, on top of the great location near the Christ the Redeemer train, historical neighborhoods and buses to the beach or city center. The breakfast was delicious and the evenings comfortable and quiet. It is an off the beaten Rio track delight.
We then spent the week down at the beach and really are so happy to have had time at Casa Caminho do Corcovodo. If you want a unique perspective on the city with local history and flavor, not to mention incredible care for your stay by Diogo and Elena, this is the respite you are looking for on your visit!! Just be sure to motivate yourself I get out and about from this idyllic gem and into the bustling city!!More
