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.

Lovely B&B with friendly, helpful hosts and excellent breakfast! We stayed during the week leading up to Rio Carnival and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Caminho do Corcovado. On arrival, as the only guests, we were upgraded to the bungalow - tucked in to jungle on the hillside. We loved the rustic setting and the proximity to nature (having seen hummingbirds, monkeys and lizards, among others). The B&B is located up quite a steep hill and a little way from most of the central attractions, however it is in a nice, quiet neighborhood in which you feel perfectly safe walking around at night. It is also right next to the train station for visiting Christ the Redeemer, so there are plenty of taxis nearby during the day. Helena and Diogo were incredibly welcoming hosts and could not have been more attentive. We loved the varied breakfasts (especially the amazing fresh juices!) and also took advantage of the airport transfers and their City Tour, where we visited several significant landmarks and viewpoints, about which Diogo was very knowledgeable. Should we return to Rio, we would certainly consider staying here again :)

As a family of 4 we stayed in the bungalow in the grounds of the property. This gave us some privacy and independence, whilst having the benefits that come with a guest house. The owners Helena and Diogo could not have been more helpful. From recommendations of where to visit, ordering airport taxis and translating for us, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was exceptional and we all looked forward to it every morning. Our children loved the fresh fruit, scrambled eggs and cakes. The location of the property is fabulous to see the local wildlife of Tijuca Forest. During our stay we saw monkeys in the garden most days, toucans visited the trees and humming birds flew amongst the flowers. We would recommend the guest house to all.

Dear Nick and Sam, You are very special guests. We'll never forget you and your children. It was 14 happy days and we miss it already. This morning the monkeys came looking for Hanna. I think they will miss you too. We wish very much to see you again someday. All the best and thank you for everything. Fondly, Helena & Diogo

Casa Caminho do Corcovado is simply the ideal base for exploring Rio de Janeiro. Incredible location in the jungle in the middle of the city of Rio at the foot of the steep Corcovado mountain. Walking distance to Corcovado train station. From the moment Diogo picked us up in the airport, we felt as friends with this caring and helpful host, always at our disposal with inspiring suggestions for our planning, directing us to the cozy places and restaurants in the neighborhood with local dishes. The excellent breakfast is served in the old atmospheric 19th century style house with view over the Cosme Velho valley. As we were the only guests, we were upgraded to the chalet in the jungle - pure magic. It was hard to say goodbye after four nights at Casa Caminho Corcovado - too short a stay - definitely a place we would look forward to return to. Access through steep and narrow streets in a quiet and safe area of Rio...

We had a lovely vacation in Rio and Casa Caminho do Corcovado. The B&B is in a nice and green location with a lovely view. Helena and Diego were ever so helpfull, we could not have asked for more. They gave us many good tips what to do and where to visit. They speak excellent english which for us was important. The Corcovado station is near by, as well as a great vegetarian restaurant Prana. There are busses going from near by, and a taxi station also.

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 city as you begin going up Corcovado's (Christ the Redeemer) mountain.
