Villa Santa Teresa is located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Outside, a swimming pool, the tropical gardens, and the panorama on the sugar loaf will delight you.

Alex is a great host and is willing to help in anyway he can to make your stay better. The villa’s location is busy but not excessively so and walkable. Be ready for a workout if you decide to take a scenic walk in the area, it’s hilly.
