The staff at breakfast and others were also lovely. Thank you all for a lovely stay. The... More

This is a great place to stay just a short walk from Santa Teresa, which is a vibrant street with great places up eat and soak up the bohemian vibe. The people who run the villa are great. There was a problem settling our bill but the people were very trustworthy to leave our details to pay the next day.... More

This is a lovely B+B. Clayton was there to greet us and his English is very good! We had the room for 3 people with private bath and it was quite roomy. The beds were kind of hard (hubby like that) and the bathroom was large and nicely upgraded! There are no toiletries so bring your own. No Tv...don't need... More

Villa Laurinda is a beautyful old house in the heart of Santa Teresa, a charmant area in the old Rio full of nice restaurants and shops. Our stay was perfect, thanks to the manager Clayton and the wonderful breakfast prepared by Claudia, a smiling lady of the staff. The room was very elegant and confortable

It's a beautiful B&B. Damien, Cleiton and other people working in Villa Laurinda are all fantastic, always ready to help you. The breakfast served on the nice terrace is fresh and rich. Moreover the woman (i don't remember the name!) who prepared breakfast is very kind and friendly. Thank you.
