Itaipava is a calm and tranquil district and a neighbourhood of Petrópolis. Known as winter refuge for many celebrities and high society of Rio de Janeiro, the neighbourhood is home to many country clubs, restaurants with fine cuisine and some of the best nightclubs in the mountainous region.
Numerous gated communities of high standard located in Itaipava, as well as small malls with upscale stores and brands. The district is also famous for hosting a range of rustic hotels with extensive infrastructure, some of which have already been the scene of several novels and Brazilian mini-series.
Itaipava makes for a great weekend getaway in the freshness of the mountains. Here at the Rio Vibe we can highly recommend Pousada Tankamana, not cheap but worth every penny. Stunningly serene, peaceful, a natural pool, wonderful breakfast, even make your own wood fire in your room.
