Private Rooms Help! A private room is a room that is not shared with other people from the property – in other words, you book and pay for all the beds in the room. If you are traveling alone, for example, but want to book a double room, you must pay for two people in order to book the whole room.

About Villa Leonor

Perched between a mango grove and a small banana and bamboo plantation off a cobbled street in the Santa Teresa district of Rio de Janeiro, Villa Leonor is a rural paradise in the heart of the cidade maravilhosa.

Stroll up Corcovado by day through the Tijuca national park to the Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer statue). Catch the famous yellow tram from the top of the street over the Arcos de Lapa. While away the evening in our outdoor lounge with views across the glittering metropolis. Roll down a hundred yards by night into the wild samba houses of Lapa or, for a truly authentic experience, Santa Teresa’s own Escola de Samba (Samba School).

Accommodation Information

All our rooms are private with ensuite bathrooms. The standard rooms can accommodate 2, 3 or 4 people. We also have an apartment that sleeps up to 6. Some rooms have their own kitchens - the others enjoy use of a separate shared guest kitchen.

Wireless internet is available free of charge.

Breakfast (included in the price) is served in a beautiful outdoor lounge where you can sunbathe, spot monkeys raiding the trees for mangoes or relax over a Caipirinha or two in the evening.

Location Information

Santa Teresa is teeming with bars and galleries. And we’re just a 10 minute walk from Lapa, the heart of Rio’s nightlife. Then there are two bus stops, 1 and 5 minutes’ walk away, between them offering direct routes to just about every part of the city worth visiting. There are three supermarkets within 5 minutes’ walk. 24 hour reception / security and bilingual staff to help you get around.
