Our art guesthouse

The Exchange

Hi my name is Monica. I´m living with my son Breno in Rio de Janeiro. We are living on a beautiful island, her name is "Ilha Gigoia". The island is placed in Barra in the south of Rio. From here you need 20 minutes with the metro to arrive in the city. And you need only 3 minutes by walk to the bus- and metro station. The beach from Barra is 15 minutes away by walk.
