My penthouse in Rio's beach haven of Ipanema is my personal favourite! I am,together with my staff, 100% committed to providing you with the best travel experience possible.
Alastair G. purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Alastair G. chose Zona Sul
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.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! 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 vigorous intellectual history involving great writers and architects.
What makes this Apartment unique
Space, and a tremendous feeling of privacy floating above Ipanema in your own private world. Apart from great style,I think to have the rare combination of 2 entirely different outdoor spaces on separate floors together with contrasting and amazing views, coupled with the location so close to Posto 9 on the beach.All this and being a penthouse awash with natural light allows for an ambiance that is truly special!!

Positioned in a calm,residential street canopied with tropical trees adorned with orchids, this is referred to by locals as the 'noble' area of Ipanema. Being to the left of Rua Vinicius de Morais this is seen to be the safest and the most desirable prime area within Ipanema, not being in the 'shadow' of any favela.Known as the 'Beverly Hills of Rio' due to the many telenovela stars who live here. Tom Jobim wrote the classic 'The Girl From Ipanema' song while living in this street in 1962(a plaque commemorates this at no.107). You are exactly parallel to and just 4 blocks from the legendary Post 9 on the beach. 2 blocks from the exciting shopping opportunities on the main thoroughfare of Rua Visc. de Piraja, and just 3 blocks from the Lagoa. Although taxis are plentiful and inexpensive, being so well located means you can walk to all the local culinary,cultural and nightlife attractions Ipanema is so famous for.You are assigned 2 parking spaces within the building which is useful if you hire a car or have Brazilian friends visiting.
