We stayed in a two bed cottage off from the main building. We were surrounded by living vibrant nature. They have a small arboretum with trees identified by labels identifying them. The breakfast was bountiful with several kinds of tropical fruit, pastries, granola. The sounds were those of a tropical jungle, though it was located on the end of the...

Our room was large and clean with a very nice bathroom. The breakfast was extensive and varied. Madame Helena was very warm and welcoming, guiding us to bus stops, restaurants, etc. The residential neighborhood was quiet and peaceful, a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city. A special attraction were the house and gardens. The house was...

My 12 year old daughter and I stayed here during the Olympics. Helena and Diogo are gracious, kind, and helpful hosts. They gave us advice and directions during our stay. Breakfast was delightful in their stately home with big windows and gorgeous views. Cosme Velho is a neighborhood up the hill from the Corcovado / Christ Redeemer train station. We...

The approach road is narrow and up a steep hill, but the experience of staying in this family run enterprise is more than worth the effort by car, taxi or on foot of getting there. The attractive and beautifully furnished house, set dramatically amidst delightful terraced gardens into the side of the Corcovado Mountain, on which stands the iconic statue...

We spent 11 nights at Casa Caminho do Corcovado. We stayed in the Toucan Room. From the moment Diogo greeted us at the airport, to the farewell from Helena the morning we departed, the warmth and hospitality of this mother/son team supported us throughout our entire stay. The historic home has much character and charm and is well maintained. The...

Beautiful house located right next to Corcovado feet With 4.500 square meters of green area, the house is placed in the Cosme Velho area one of the most charming neighborhoods in the city, famous by many of the illustrious inhabitants and for the cultural and historical memoirs. The house Caminho do Corcovado is located inside of the Tijuca park reserve having the Corcovado train passing literally by its door. The house was constructed in 1906, since than it had many illustrious residents, including the proper construction engineer of the railroad of the Corcovado, and still keeps the characteristics of the beginning of the last century. For nature lovers its 4500 square meters receives frequent visits of many species of monkeys and toucans, Brazil's typical wild life residents. The Bed and breakfast contains 2 large rooms with air conditioner, TV, ceiling fan, closets and a decoration of very refined taste, it counts with a delicious breakfast and with an area for barbecue and several other personalized services in accordance with the taste of our guests, the calm and the tranquility is undeniable and it all sits right at the south zone of Rio De Janeiro, 10 minutes from the lagoon and the botanical garden and 15 minutes from Copacabana an Ipanema area by car and 25 minutes by bus. The House Caminho do Corcovado is perfect for those who want to enjoy the very best that Rio de Janeiro has to offer. Important: This is an unusual house in an urban forest, so the buses do not pass on your door. But they are not far - just 50 feet below. Because it is situated on a little hill, which gives a beautiful view, has some stairs, so therefore not the proper place for disabled people or people with limited mobility. ... more   less
