is one of the few places to stay in Rio where you can relax in a magnificent
colonial, tropical setting and yet be right next to the best nightlife
and activities this marvellous city offers.
Set in Santa Teresa, a quaint cobbled street in the old part of the
city, Casa MangoMango offers easy access both to beaches, forest and
city. The house is on the hundred-year old tram route and only a ten
minutes walk from the city centre.
The house itself is a huge colonial mansion, guarded by two magnificent
bi-centenarian mango trees. Hence the name, Casa MangoMango! Resplendent
with original features, the house has been restored and decorated
in funky, upbeat designs to cater for every taste. And outside, in
the vast and lovely, tropical gardens, there’s a cool pool too!
Built in 1906 by the family of Julia Lopes, a Brazilian novelist,
journalist, playwright, and lecturer, the house hosted many a sarau
for the literati of the early 20th century. Today we try to keep her
spirit alive by inviting local artists to display their work and having
local musicians play on our music nights. Our musical and artistic
events may well be some of your best holiday memories in Brazil.
