Finding an authentic place to stay with our family during holidays, is one of my top priority since some time. After we got kids, we hardly ever choose hotels, as they give us sort of claustrophobic feeling and are such a unpersonal place to stay. I always spend a lot of time searching for the best possible accommodation within our budget. Airbnb is a platform that I’m starting my searching path. If you are lucky, you can find treasures, like the one I’m showing you today. This Saõ Paulo villa is created by an architect Paulo and hidden in a very nice residential area of the city. Worth the walk around too!
I’m not going to show you a lot, as I think it is a house with a soul and the pictures can’t do its justices….. Paulo rebuilt two old buildings, connecting them with a charming patio and a large kitchen on the ground floor. I really like the combination of the raw concrete, the unpolished large wood elements with greenery sort of over growing it all. The outside jungle is present inside thanks to using large glass panels, and this creates such a unique feeling when you are around. The villa is decorated with plenty of objects and furniture which we absolutely love, and we felt so well and comfortable, as it was almost our house….well, we could keep dreaming, right?
If you ever going to visit Saõ Paulo, you can find the villa here: Airbnb - Villa Sau Paulo
please send greetings to Paulo from us. Obrigado! one day we will be back!
