HOuse belonged to my grandfather and then to my father, who you see in the picture. We are three brothers who own it. I take care of it dearly.

RAFAEL VIDAL purchased this house in 1954

Great House

  • 5 of 5

It was a great house, the porch was a great spot to sit and enjoy the sun! The owner is extremely helpful...he made sure that we had everything we needed and didn't hesitate to assist with any questions prior to getting to Rio and while we were in Rio. We were there during the world cup which was very hectic so it was nice to go to this awesome home and relax to get away from it all. I would recommend this house for anyone.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have Mrs. Mayer and her family at our home. We appreciate the nice review and strive to make it even better in the future! And yes: one of the best features of our home is to be in the best area of Rio and still be able to get out of the crowd and be in green and peace in 10 minutes!
