Our student and guesthouse situated above the Gávea Golf Club a few yards only from the beach of São Conrado in Rio de Janeiro Brazil, has the peaceful atmosphere of a farm although only at a short distance from any major points of touristic attraction and sport locations by any of the round of the clock available means of public transportation …

With the “Pedra da Gávea” rock dominating the guesthouse (a major starting point for  paragliding and delta wings free flying), the view on the subtropical forest “Mata Atlántica” of the ecological reserve of the Tijuca National Park is just breathtaking …

During the university semester “Casa São Conrado” is the home of master and doctorate students of the PUC University (Pontifical Catholic University of Rio), the majority of them foreigners from all nations of the world and an ideal place for studying.

During the university recess however, we are delighted to accommodate visitors from other Brazilian states and foreign countries for which natural and peaceful surroundings are  important at the place they chose to stay: the tourist finds here a propitious atmosphere for regeneration close to the appealing tropical beat of the “marvelous city” !

Contrary to hotels or bed and breakfast “Casa São Conrado” offers all what is needed to feel at home: free use of the kitchen, refrigerator and shelves of the pantry to prepare own meals using fresh vegetables and exotic fruits available in nearby stores and street markets. Just like the student-guests of the house do, you are entitled to the unrestricted use of the appliances and commodities of the house: dish washer, washing machine, microwave oven, Wi-Fi internet, swimming pool etc… A laundry service is available as an option but like any other private house, there is no bar or restaurant and the kitchen closes at night to preserve the tranquility of the guests.

There is a supermarket around the corner, taxis and omnibuses … and of course also the São Conrado Beach at a walking distance down the street …
