Spacious houses with beautiful gardens and without security walls. Sounds like i'm talking about a good suburb in the USA, Canada or Australia, but i'm talking about a residential subdivision in Florianópolis, capital of Santa Catarina, Brazil.

Here is the island of Florianóplis. A is downtown, B is Jurere.

And here is Jurere.

Unofortunately most of brazilians can't have 10% of this quality of life, you need to be a millionaire if you want to live in Jurere. Oh, and Jurere is NOT a gated community and that is the main difference between Jurere and other places like it in Brazil. Anyone can go there but there are a lot of cameras and security guards, it is the most guarded neighborhood of Santa Catarina.

Hope you like it

So, is this your conception of "quality of life?"

I'm sorry for you...

If you are rich. That is not a cheap area. Also it is mainly for visiting the beach, most of the jobs are in Floripa itself.

I am thinking of buying a beach house there though. I love SC.
