This apartment is along the prestigious Avenida Atlantica. From the apartment you will see beautiful sunrises and feel cool ocean breezes. From the window you have an expansive and totally unencumbered view of the ocean and beach culture of Rio. The apartment is in the epicenter of the Leme/Copacabana neighborhood. Everything that happens in Rio happens outside our window: parades, marches, half marathons, cycling tours, you name it we see it. We saw the Wold Cup Fanfest, Rolling Stones and Lenny Kravitz concerts, Pope Francis, and the annual New Year's Eve fireworks from our window. The building is on a corner, thus from the spacious living room you have a ocean view from two sides. The living room has air conditioning and new sofas that seat 7 people. 500GB router with Google Mesh ...This apartment is along the prestigious Avenida Atlantica.

About the neighbourhood
The neighborhood is great. It is very safe and much more peaceful and serene than Copacabana. There are some outstanding restaurants in the area and some night life as well. You can rent bikes across the street, play beach soccer (football) or volleyball, rent a paddle board at the other end of the beach, or go for an ocean swim.
Getting around
A couple of blocks away, you can catch buses to any part of Rio day or night. 10 to 15 minute walk is the subway. Taxi stands are a minute away and Uber drives normally reach you within 5 minutes. Very convenient and central location to get you anywhere in the city.
