O Veleiro Bed and Breakfast Information

Description

O Veleiro B&B is a small Bed and Breakfast or 'Cama e Café' in a large private home. We were Brazil's first official B&B opened in 1999 and are located on a quiet forested hillside above Botafogo - neighbor to Copacabana - in the heart of Rio’s touristic Zona Sul (south zone). Walking distance from Sugar Loaf or the Christ Statue train, or just minutes by public transport, taxi or Uber from Copacabana/ Ipanema beaches. We offer a welcome alternative to hotel accommodation in Rio de Janeiro. O Veleiro Bed and Breakfast is the perfect base for you to enjoy your dream vacation. Surrounded by remnants of Brazilian Atlantic forest, you will wake to the chatter of wild parrots, toucans and monkeys and views of the Tijuca National Park towering above us. You might feel like you're somewhere out in the countryside, yet you’re right here in the heart of Rio! Just minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of a major south american city waiting to be explored! Share ideas for your day’s adventures with other guests over breakfast around our big family table. We’ll offer you some of our personalized tips! One of your hosts is a registered guide with Brazil's ministry of Tourism since 1999 so if interested, you can also arrange private tours of the city and surrounding areas with us.
