Central 3-storey penthouse w/small poll, nice view of the Christ -close to all tourist attractions

Introducing

We are a family of four. My husband and I are in our late forties, José is a TV Sports Journalist and I work as a Translator. We love Arts, Sports and Cultural and Outdoor/Nature Activities in general. We have two children, our surfer boy is 18 and is starting Law School and our girl is 11 and more art oriented and urban, so we are open to all kinds of destinations. My husband and I always loved travelling and now we enjoy it even more with our kids The kids are well behaved and used to travelling the world with us. We had very nice exchanges with San Diego, New York, London, Cape Town and Paris (3 times). We are in a very central location in Rio. Basically every tourist attraction is within 10 minutes from our apartment. Looking towards the end of our street you will see the Sugar Loaf. It is a quiet residential area, the apartment complex is very safe, we have two 24X7 onsite concierge. The area is central, but surrounded by a nice green mountain (no shantytowns around). It is easily located both to the beach (one metro stations to Copacabana and three to Ipanema) and to the night life and musical scene of Rio (Lapa). The subway is two blocks from our street; there are bakeries, pharmacies, supermarkets, restaurants and a large shopping mall within a couple of blocks.
