In the month of the World Cup, all eyes will be on Brazil, particularly Rio de Janeiro - the Marvellous City. Although many hotels are fully booked, Villa 174 still has some availability. 

Located in Santa Teresa, Villa 174 has only 4 suites, each representing an aspect of Brazil: from the mighty Amazon Rainforest to its many examples of art deco decor. 

What with sunbathing by the pool and enjoying the great service, you’re unlikely to want to hit the streets and experience World Cup fever firsthand. But if you want to keep up with it, no problem! Just ask the parrot Nino about the games he’s been watching.   He’ll have all the scores on the tip of his tongue.
