Additional Location Information
Leblon and Ipanema share the same beach, like Leme and Copacabana. The border is a shallow canal and park known as Jardim de Ala (Allah's Gardens). Leblon is one of the best areas to stay or live in Rio. Schools, movie theaters and theaters, nightclubs, concert halls, and some of Rio's best restaurants and bars are among the attractions.
Leblon has a romantic history. It was an area area of difficult access, and it was once used as a hiding place for runaway slaves. The land originally belonged to Frenchman Charles Le Blond, who owned a fishing company named Aliança. He sold the land to Portuguese José de Seixas Magalhães.
Leblon started to grow with Ipanema, when a streetcar line connected them to the rest of the city. Leblon was at the end of the line, and it grew at a somewhat slower pace. Even though it's very cosmopolitan today, it still retains a small town charm with neighborhood shops that have been around for generations.
Upper Leblon (Alto Leblon) is almost strictly residential. This hilly area on the West side of Leblon is a favorite spot for Rio's rich and famous. There are many houses, mansions and posh apartments. It starts on the left lane of Av. Visconde de Albuquerque and goes uphill. Some streets are still cobblestone. There is a curious paper-thin building looming over Alto Leblon than can be easily spotted from the beach. According to a dweller you can actually feel the building sway when there is a strong wind...
Lower Leblon (Baixo Leblon) is the bohemian side of the neighborhood, and it ruled nightlife in the 70's and 80's. A stop for a pizza or beer was almost mandatory after a night of fun - some restaurants and bars remain open until past 4 a.m. This area starts at Cazuza Square and includes streets Dias Ferreira and the beginning of Ataulfo de Paiva. Though landmark nightspots like Real Astoria and Diagonal are no longer around, it is still a good bet for after-hours. The area surrounding Clipper, a bar further along Av. Ataulfo de Paiva, is also very popular. It has lately become a sort of a meeting spot where the young celebrate major soccer games.
Leblon Beach went "under renovations" in the early 90's. The eroded sand strip became too narrow, and part of it was reclaimed. Now it is as wide as Ipanema. The water is still not suitable for swimming after it rains, though. There is a famous baby-boomer spot across from Rua Venâncio Flores. This is where young Leblon mothers and their babies get their daily dose of tropical sun, early in the morning.
Main street Ataulfo de Paiva was recently refurbished with project Rio Cidade. Like in Ipanema the street lights, signs and even public phones are unique. Many corners gained charming wooden seats. Stop and sit for a while to watch the pedestrians passing by, and maybe you will understand why Cariocas have a permanent love affair with Leblon.

What Past Guests Are Saying
staying in rio
very nice apartment very nice concierge service, a little bit overpriced but nice
France Nice Paris
Wonderful-Merveilleux-Très bien situé- Spacieux-
Merveilleux à beaucoup de point de vue , le Transfert ponctuel, l'accueil de Selva irréprochable , La rapidité et l'efficacité avec laquelle le problème de connexion Internet Wi-fi a été réglé.
l'appartement en lui-même avec un superbe living de belles chambres,2 belles cuisines, une belle terrasse. Seule la micro piscine nous a semblé un peu décevante.
Un petit bémol pour la femme de ménage qui bien que présente de façon journalière,n'est pas d'une bien grande efficacité...à surveiller !
Nous recommanderons cet appartement et nous recommanderons Rio exclusive.
Bravo et merci Didier-Pierre Moëc, Christophe Perdriau et leurs 3 amis

Stunning apartment, stunning view
We loved this apartment. It was a few steps away from Leblon beach and the view of the beach was gorgeous. The doorman staff was cordial and helpful (although we didn't like the fact that we couldn't self park, but that the staff keep the keys to the car because it's such a tiny garage that they need to constantly play musical chairs with the cars). The apartment is also really close to some of Leblon's best restaurants, so we enjoyed that. The apartment's decor is very modern, almost minimalist. The lady who came to clean it was very nice and helped us with our groceries one day. What we didn't like it was the fact the water filter was broken so we had to buy water and lug it back by the gallon. The pool was also not very clean and the guy who came to clean it took a few days to actually come by, so by the time he did come, it was our last day in the apartment, so we really didn't enjoy it that much, which was a shame. The other minus is the fact they didn't have a hair dryer, nor a regular coffee machine (they had one of those special espresso ones, but no capsules for us to use). Another minues is that the stone surface of the living room and hallways was a dust trap and since my 10 month old came along the trip her clothes were literally black after crawling for a little bit. But we would totally rent it again.
only the best of Rio !
Pas le moindre souci durant le séjour. L'appartement est très bien situé, à deux pas de la plage, spacieux , clean.
Le staff est très disponible et chaleureux ... . très cool
No worry during my stay. The appartment is well located, ywo blocks away from the beach, clean, roomy.
The staff is very helpful and frienly.. So cool !
Top Lux with style, perfect location
Great view to beach on the one side and mountains on the other. Perfect location in exclusive (and safe) neighborhood, across the street from Ipanema/Leblon beach, next to great restaurants and nightlife (try Sushi Leblon and Black for a drink). The apartment is huge, modern, stylish. Fabiana, the maid (she came every day to fetch breakfast, beds, clean) is very nice and helpful. Negative points: pool is not very large, no parties allowed.
