Coming to Rio can be a very unsettling experience, unless you have a warm welcome. Before I came to Villa Laurinda, I had the unfortunate experience of a very expensive and very unfriendly "4 star" hotel on Ipanema Beach (Praia Ipanema Hotel). At first, Villa Laurinda may be hard to find, precisely because it's off the tourist circuit.... but once you are in this private villa, it becomes home. Santa Teresa is one of the most delicious and exquisite locations of Rio. So, for anybody who wants a very exceptional and intimate experience of living in Rio, and feeling the warmth and hospitality, plus the silence and joy of a relaxing and real holiday, this is a truly secret trove. Please don't spread the word... it's too good to be true.
