In a trendy old historic mansion in Corrêas, 15 minutes from downtown Petrópolis, the Casa Marambaia boutique hotel recently opened its doors to bring glamour to the Serra Fluminense.
The emblematic mansion was built in 1947 among the mountains of the Serra dos Órgãos mountain range, at Marambaia Farm, and has always aroused much curiosity. If until then only a few guests had the privilege of passing through the sumptuous gates, now all you need to do is make a reservation in one of the 8 accommodations of Casa Marambaia to discover its secrets.
Elegance and sophistication are not lacking in the interior design project signed by the architecture firm Projeto Mix and curated by Claudia Aguiar, from Maria Maria. They managed to preserve the aura of the property frequented by Rio’s high society and by many celebrities. From the entrance hall, where a grand staircase leads to the upper floor, preciosities are revealed to the most attentive eye, such as 18th century mirrors, French bronze chandeliers, and a beautiful desk that belonged to Olavo Bilac.
Meanwhile, outside, the green of the Atlantic Forest blends into the gardens designed by Burle Marx, where a couple of black swans swim in the small pond surrounded by lavender beds. A true movie set.
But the biggest star of Casa Marambaia comes out of the kitchen where super chef Roland Villard together with David Mansaud sign the entire gastronomic concept from the brioches that arrive still warm at the gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner table, in addition to the Tea Time and Happy Hour menus.
With this peaceful, sophisticated and glamorous mood I wish you all a wonderful week.
XoXo and see you next Tuesday.
