A short climb up an almost forgotten stretch of cobbled road from Botafogo beach leads to the rustic hideaway escape Veleiro. The colonial style house consists of three simple, comfy rooms, with an extra guest able to be accommodated for a small surcharge (R$90). A dip in the pool or a hang in the hammock under the eucalyptus and mango trees, and the city suddenly seems a very long way away indeed.
