Unique Favela Stay with Ocean View - Pedrinha

House, Private room - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

ID 95210

Description

Set dramatically on the steep hills above the ocean, Vidigal is one of the most scenic and lively favelas in Rio de Janeiro. With the bustling beaches of Leblon, Ipanema and Sao Conrado at its vicinity it's in the midst of Rios unique beach scene. Many local cultural initiatives have emerged recently, organizing samba concerts, parties, open air cinemas, sport events and theater plays, adding to the vibrant cultural life in the community. Supermarkets and ATMs are also available. As part of the favela pacification plan of the Federal Government of Rio de Janeiro, criminal elements were driven out of the neighborhood and a police post established in the favela a few years ago, ensuring the safety of residents and visitors.

With poverty remaining a key problem, we continue our work to improve the possibilities to escape poverty by providing educational services to the local population. Since its foundation in 2003 our local, charitable and independent non-governmental organization trains children and young adults at no cost in a wide range of subjects (e.g. language, mathematical and computer skills, professional training, sports, etc.) and provides counseling services to their families at our school.

We invite tourists, which are interested in getting to know the daily life in a favela, to stay with us in our small, comfortable and safe guest house. All the earnings of our guest house are used directly for funding our programs and services, supporting the local community in its fight against poverty.

Our house is on a peaceful and quite street not too far up the hill - with the next beach only a 300m walk away!

Located right above our school, we offer three basic but comfortable rooms, each equipped with a private bathroom (hot water available) and a great view of the ocean and the city.

Our room “Pedrinha” has a breathtaking view of the ocean, the rainforest, the favela and the city. It is equipped with a bunk bed accommodating 2 persons, a private bathroom and air conditioning.

Our newly remodeled roof top terrace offers a 360° view of the surrounding area and is a favorite place to hang-out. Guests can also use the common kitchen, equipped with a fridge and gas stove. In case you want to do your laundry, we also provide a place to manually wash clothes and a drying area. Free WIFI Internet is available as well.

The shared facilities are also used by some of our volunteers from all over the world while supporting us in providing our services to the local community.

We will provide you with bed linen and towels, and will take care of cleaning your room and the shared facilities. We are also happy to help you with information concerning the life in the Vidigal and Rio de Janeiro. If you want, you can also take part in our Capoeira classes twice a week for free. In case you are interested in learning Portuguese we can organize private lessons at our guest house for you. On demand we can also set up a tour through the favela of Vidigal and a hiking trip to Dos Irmaos, one of the most spectacular panoramic view points of Rio de Janeiro. We can also connect you to with other tours in Rio de Janeiro and the region. If required, we can arrange for you being picked-up at the airport on arrival and your laundry being cleaned.

In any case you will get the unique chance to get to know the life in a favela and the work of our organization from the inside!
