A museum: watch out! Everything is beautiful and fragile
You can cross the street and walk around the lake, walk two blocks to wonderful restaurants, the beautiful gardens of Parque Lage and the Botanical gardens. Lots of supermarkets, and special bread and delicatessen shops. Trees all over the neighborhood!
If you love the movies, you have art movie theaters in a 10 min drive, and commercial movie theaters 5 min by car, or 20 min walk.
But if your passion is the beach, you can choose to walk around the lake to Leblon, or Ipanema, or have an easy bike tour: You get one near the house and leave it there in another point. Very pleasant ! This is a place for people that like art, elegance and comfortable living.
