10 of the coolest party villas

10 of the coolest party villas

1 of 10 1/10

Le Magnifique

Rio de Janeiro

The pad: Sleeps 10 in five bedrooms.

The location: Joá, Rio’s smartest suburb, home to Joatinga, the city’s most exclusive beach.

The party hotspots: The Baretto-Londra Bar at the Fasano hotel for pre-nightclub cocktails on Ipanema. Follow up with dancing at VIP dance club Miroir for an international line-up and top Brazilian DJs.

The wow factor: You’re in a five-storey, glass-walled villa with eye-popping views of the deep blue South Atlantic.

The lowdown: Poised on the edge of a mountain, with a winding stone path and living wall of tropical plants, this place feels like a jungle paradise. There’s a secluded spa pool the size of a swimming pool, a waterfall and an expansive terrace. Inside there are soaring wooden ceilings, designer lighting, polished concrete floors and décor in a palette of muted silver and browns. Restored by a Canadian fashion designer, this place is achingly cool but still homely, furnished with the kind of detailing often missing from rental villas. Relax in the giant modern Chesterfield in front of a log-stacked, riveted steel fireplace. Or fire up the barbecue and open the bar. Your guests won’t want to leave any time soon.

How to visit: Combine a stay with seven days discovering Brazil on a superyacht.

From $5,000 per day
