Rio de Janeiro is every man's fantasyland. The fairytale city combines tropical vegetation, beaches carpeted with the girls from Ipanema, and a sultry climate that lures everyone out of their homes on the many balmy evenings.
This book, both a travelogue and a look inside twenty spectacular local homes, presents a stylish overview of the city's history, beaches, nightlife, parties and sensuous Carioca lifestyle.
