This is a luxury house in Rio de Janeiro, perfect for couple in honeymoon, corporate events and marriage parties. There are some things that stir up the stomach butterflies. Falling in love is the most obvious (and amazing) of them, traveling to a wonderful place is another, and staying at this place — preferably accompanied with your significant other — can get them going in an intense and unforgettable way. Located on the giant rock that is the Joatinga neighborhood, known for its concentration of the city’s most luxurious mansions, this place is the perfect setting for upscale and romantic vacations in Rio de Janeiro. With seven suites divided by colors and decorated in way that express the various sides of its owner, the Frenchman François-Xavier Dussol, the mansion has a cinematic vista of the Atlantic Ocean and features two pools. One of them is an infinity pool, which has been featured in fashion shoots and stylish weddings.
The mansion also has a few standout pieces, such as the grandiose crystal chandelier designed by Philippe Starck in the center of the living room, colored marble in the bathrooms that match the exclusive decorations in each suite, and a mix of the past and present that brings sacred Brazilian designers together alongside international pieces and rare finds from specialty fairs and antique shops.
The mansion’s mood is relaxed, and encourages guests to feel as comfortable here as they would at a close friend’s house. One of the best moments of the day is the homemade breakfast, served on the common balcony with an ocean view or on some of the room’s verandas. The boutique hotel features special meals created by the chef Pascal Joly, whose resume includes stints at Relais Plaza in Paris and Paillard in New York. Around the area, guests can explore Joatinga beach — popular with artists who want peace and quiet — and the luxury Fashion Mall shopping center. There’s also the option of signing up for a gastronomy tour around Leblon, a neighborhood that holds a concentration of excellent Carioca restaurants.
