THE LIVING AREAS

Framed in floor-to ceiling doors that lead out to the swimming pool and gardens, our open plan living areas are timeless, elegant and full of sunlight. Family antiques blend with contemporary Carioca design pieces to create intimate corners for relaxing, characterized by the individuality and comfort of a private home.

While a home-made breakfast is served at the communal table in our dining room, guests can curl up with a book on one of the over-sized sofas, pour themselves a drink from the honesty bar, or enjoy pre-dinner cocktails in the Library Room, where a fire is lit on cooler nights.
