Where is it?
This is one of the most coveted locations in all of Rio de Janeiro.
It is 200 meters away from Ipanema's famous beach at 'Posto 9', which boasts powdery sand, so fine that it squeaks as you walk through it, surf-friendly waves, dedicated walking and bicycle paths (bicycles readily available for rental), and one of the world's most magnificent beach views. On Sundays and holidays, traffic is blocked off along the external lane of Avenida Vieira Souto, to which Cariocas flock to walk, run, skate, or bike with magnificent views all around and the fresh breeze entering from the sea.
The apartment building is at mid-block, facing Ipanema's Praça de General Osório. This small park is an attraction on its own, with its Sunday Hippie Fair, where artisans set up stands to sell all manner of Brazilian crafts, and its Tuesday fresh food fair, where you will see and can taste a panoply of tropical fruits, as well as vegetables and meats, including the participation of numerous fish mongers, from whom you can purchase the delectable bounties of Rio de Janeiro's rich fishing waters.
Additionally, the square is Ipanema's principal transportation hub, with a metro station 150 meters from our front door and buses departing to all parts of the city. The Metro is well-patrolled and very safe. The bus system is for the more adventurous. We are happy to provide greater insights and information.
In addition to the food fair in the square, there are 3 grocery stores within 160 meters of the building, numerous restaurants ringing three sides of the square, as well as several juice bars, where you can order a sandwich and a tropical fruit juice, in addition to the famous açaí fruit pulp.
The immediate area of the apartment also boasts a small concentration of art galleries. Plenty of shopping: clothing, gifts, jewelry, and other is available within a kilometer of our building, toward and beyond Praça Nossa Senhora da Paz, also in Ipanema. Two women's salons, a barbershop, an excellent yoga studio, and an top notch dentist (hope you do not need him) in a commercial building on same block as ours. Dry cleaning and laundry service available within 100 meters, if you do not want the trouble of doing your own!
