As Tom Daley prepares for his 10m Olympic dive on Friday, he can rest up at the striking mansion in Parque Lage.
Team GB can treat it as a home from home with friends and family during the Rio Games. Framed by botanical gardens, the house sits beneath the Christ the Redeemer statue.
English landscape architect John Tyndale designed the grounds in 1840. In the Twenties, industrialist Henrique Lage lived there with his opera singer wife, Gabriella Besanzoni.
The house has been transformed for the Games by London-based Innovision into “British House” with UK brands including DFS, and bespoke pieces from Deptford textile studio Insley & Nash.
