“One of the best places I've ever stayed”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

My stay in Rio was made even more fabulous by the Almirante Villa. A beautiful house renovated with taste that is certainly one of the most charming and delightful places I've ever been. The staff is really nice and helpful. Wonderful view!

Full agreement with the other reviewers. This is a very special place. Eric is a French man with excellent customer service indeed !
We had a great time in his little palace, and there is nothing else to say than look at the photos and you will be enchanted by this magnificent B&B. O.K. it is indeed a little difficult to find - but write Eric an email and he will send you instructions that surely brings you there easily. I hope we can return to Rio one day and book again with him.
