Artistic house in the heart of Vila Madalena! The nicest district in SP! All the clubs, bars and trendy points in the city are a 10 minutes (maximum) walk from here. Incredible opportunity!
The house is huge (it has three floors, a big loft and wild garden), as a terrific view of Sao Paulo, is less than a 10 min walk from the Vila Madalena subway station, and a short walk to all the Vila Madalena bars, art galleries and night life. the place has one Queen size bed, an additional Queen size mattress and also has 2 very comfortable couches to sleep on. In total it comfortably fits 2 couples + 2 singles = 6 people. :)

ECOLOGICAL, GREEN, SAFE AND QUITE:
You will have the entire second floor to yourself, with a fantastic view of Sao Paulo and complete privacy. The house is ecologically correct and was build intelligently:
- The entire house is very well illuminated, with natural ventilation.
- The rooms don't get too hot, nor too cold, as their roof have a 50cm garden layer to insulate (no Air Conditioning needed).
- The house has hot and cold water everywhere and is 100% solar powered.
- The house is extremely safe, with an electric fence, camera system and alarm.
- The house is surprisingly quite for an urban context as it is facing out of São Paulo.
- There are many parks nearby to take a walk or meditate.
- Since you are on the third floor, you'll have the best view of Sao Paulo, but also have to be prepared to take a few extra stairs... :)
- IMPORTANT: the house does not have handicapped access.

This place was build by an artist, who likes nature, the great view and the carefully chosen location. You will have complete privacy, the place is very quite and ideal for creative work.

The neighborhood

Vila Madalena is without any doubts the best neighborhood in São Paulo. It reflects Brazil's way of enjoying life. It is full of cultural events and sparkles with bohemian nightlife.

SURROUNDED BY RESTAURANTS AND BARS:
The house is very central, close to the Vila Madalena Subway station, next to many bus stations and surrounded by many taxi stands. There are local bakeries, coffee shops, bars, restaurants, all walking distance, most of them considered the best of Brazil! My favorite is Chez Vivi (very fancy and a bit expensive, but perfect to take your loved one for a special occasion) and 101 Cervejas Nacionais (where you will be find most Brazilian beers and many international brands for an accessible price and long explanations by the owner). Both are half a block from the house. Don't forget to visit the most bohemian bar (Mercearia Sao Pedro), which is two blocks away. If you alone, just grab a beer, stand on the side walk and start talking to any stranger. Most people speak English. If you walk further downhill, you'll get the super-crowded and crazy Vila Madalena crowds (about 3-4 blocks down), where you also find excellent restaurants! For vegetarians, you have a ver economic place 1min away (Restaurante Cereal Brasil) and a very economic bakery with great breakfasts (Padaria Rodesia), both on Rua Rodesia. The bakery also delivers food, including readymade meals. Vila Madalena for more info.

(Wikipedia description of the neighborhood):
Vila Madalena is a upper middle class neighborhood of the Pinheiros district in the western part of the city of São Paulo, Brazil. The neighborhood is known for its bustling nightlife, and its history as a center of São Paulo bohemian culture and art. The neighborhood is filled with dozens of art galleries and studios, an eclectic mix of restaurants and bars and also boasts a series of impressive graffiti-covered streets and alleys.

Omid was fantastic to work with. He is very responsive. The neighborhood is great. Very clean and safe; metro accessible by foot; close to grocery store; and close to tons of restaurants, bars, and shops, including a Nike store. He has a manager that was awesome. Greeted us right when we arrived and helped us get a taxi when we left. The only downside was that it was a little bit loud at night...but we went to bed relatively early.

Response from Omid:
I've found out what the noise was: they were delivering construction material at night to a construction in progress next door. We all hope that they complete construction soon. :) This neighborhood is actually very quite for being in the center of São Paulo, especially within Vila Madalena.

The apartment has amazing views and has everything you could possibly need. Omid was flexible on arrival and departure and the housekeeper is really helpful. It's a great spot for seeing the cool stuff in Vila Madelana, and a short walk to the tube for the rest of the city.

Independent Filmmaker and Music Producer. My house is stylish, with a rustic feel and high-tech. I live in Vila Madalena, which is by far the best area in São Paulo. From here I can walk to the subway and all arts and entertainment venues. A must for visitors. :)
