This Brazilian Villa is a Dream Stay

High on a hilltop in Rio de Janeiro’s lush Santa Teresa neighborhood between the city’s center and the sandy beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, Chez Georges is a showcase of transcontinental modernism housed in an impressive work of Brazilian Brutalism by the nationally renowned architect Wladimir Alves de Souza. Boasting a private, seven-suite villa and a separate two-bedroom studio, the property is set on the edge of a protected forest within a lofty and secluded location.
