About the Area
The house is situated in a quiet uphill cul-de-sac in a quiet neighbourhood of Niteroi. Bus stops that will take you down into Niteroi and beyond to Rio are within walking distance, though it may take you longer to walk UP to the house than DOWN to the bus-stops!!
Well under an hour by taxi to and from the airport unless you happen to travel in the "rush" hour. Great ferry ride over to Rio and then a short walk to the metro and mostly a short ride to Rio`s tourist hot spots if that is where you are headed.
Easy reach of Rio's key tourist attractions but Niteroi also has its own views to enjoy and we know where the best restaurants are for you to sample excellent Brazilian cuisine. Or you can order pizzas, or even sushi, to eat in at home easily too! And you can enjoy your own BBQs on our extensive terrace if you lets us know that is what you want to do.
