My girlfriend and me stayed at Elmiro and Sergio' s place only for one night but it was one of the most pleasant stays in Brazil. The house is gorgously restored and very artistically furnitured! It's something really special. As for the neighbourhood, for me, Santa Teresa is the best place to stay in Rio.You can have drinks, party and... More

We enjoyed our stay in Rio immensely, not only because of the city but especially because of the wonderful accommodation and the incredible hospitality that we found in Miro's and Sergio's home. The house with the backyard and gardens is the most wonderful and relaxing place you can imagine. Miro and Sergio spend so much attention to details in decorating... More

Stayed at Canto da Carambola for 7 days during the World Cup with three other friends - we loved it! We stayed in a room accommodating four people. The room was spacious, comfortable and oozing with character (just like the rest of the B&B!). The facilities were extremely clean and the shower was hot with good water pressure. Our room... More

There is something poetic about sitting in my beautiful room at Canto da Carambola, this last evening of my second stay here. I look outside my window in wonderment at the ease with which the colours of the house, the finely crafted aesthetics combining the most beautiful plants, found-objects given second leases to life in the most creative ways, and...

Was here alone and a bit disorientated due to the fact that it was my first time in Rio and that in that occasion was travelling as a lone girl. Miro and Sergio's place was exactly the location I could feel as if I was home, and even better due to the charming artistic and vintage decorations and the luxurious... More

I stayed at Miro and Sergio's place for 3 nights and it was perfect! The house is beautifully decorated with art (some of it made by Sergio!) and retro artifacts, it's all just very very pretty!

Staying in Santa Teresa

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
