Superior Apartments – 2 bedrooms

Triple: 1 room with attached bathroom, but that bathroom can be used (from another door entrance) by a 3rd person who will be using living room to sleep. So this is basically an apartment to be used or by friends or the same family - for instance a couple with a son/daughter or those who do not mind sharing bathroom facilities in such a way.

Quadruple: Normally have 2 rooms and 2 private bathrooms, but it may happen to have only one bathroom for 4 people (rare). So this is a good option for 2 couples or 2 pair of friends or even randomly chosen people who don´t mind to share facilities in such way since the price is inviting.

Superior Villas – 3 or 4 rooms

Quintuple: 2 rooms and 2 bathrooms - the 5th person will be sleeping in the living room and using the same bathroom as the 2 people in the room with 2 beds - the other bathroom being private.

Sextuple: 3 rooms and 3 bathrooms; or 3 rooms and 2 bathrooms.

The best places will be occupied by those who book first, of course.

In all cases of shared apartments maximun per room are 2 persons.

By way of further explanation: If someone chooses to stay in an apartment of 3 rooms he will be sharing it with another 5 persons - in every room there will be 2 persons. Or 3 rooms with 2 persons in each makes 6 persons. Prices becomes less and less as the number of rooms becames higher as you can see above.
Or in other words, if you choose to stay in a Superior Villa with 3 rooms you will be paying $499 for all the week (accommodation and meals) along with attendance at the complete program and will be in a room with one other person only but sharing facilities - kitchen, sitting room, terrace (sometimes pond) etc. with another 5 people.
Groups of friends or families may book the larger accommodation (but will have to pay for all the beds even if not all are used), or a place can be allocated for individuals, or couples, to share with others at random. If you prefer to find others to share with subscribe to the ivu-brazil list (see: ) as there could be others looking for room-mates.
