About this listing

The space

This is a Spanish colonial house located within the Historical Distric of the City of Petropolis, with total privacy, amid a beautiful green area, and ten minutes walk from the commercial center. In perfect conditions, the residence is extremely comfortable and sunny and has large and flowery gardens, a swimming-pool, and a lot of security and tranquility. It is ideal for people aiming to do business, tourism, study or simply seeking harmony and inner peace.

The city is located approximately 50 minutes by car from the city of Rio de Janeiro and the access to public transportation to the bus station is very easy. Five minutes walk from a sports center with weight-lifting equipments, swimming pool, tennis courts (indoor and closed), sauna, and other activities.

The remarkable Imperial City of Petrópolis offers gastronomic, cultural and historical tourism and is considered a fundamental landmark of the Brazilian late Empire and of the Early Republic in Brazil. The city also portrays the immigration process in the country and celebrates its German and Italian colonization with traditional festivals that take place in June and September. Also in June, the annual winter festivals bring cultural attractions from all over the world to entertain citizens and tourists. The town also offers beautiful natural landscapes and plenty attractions for eco-tourism and sports, hiking, climbing, horseback riding and a famous golf field.

The adventure of discovering the roots of Brazil remains incomplete without a close look to Petrópolis. Its beautiful residences surrounding the former summer retreat of the Emperor Dom Pedro II - now the Imperial Museum - all located within the natural wonders of the Brazilian Atlantic forest, makes the city an icon of the Brazilian heritage.

Independent apartment, with nearly 90 m², that includes a large living-room, two big bedrooms (2 single beds in the first one and the other with a double bed), Cable TV, Wireless internet, bathroom, kitchen and shared laundry.

Ficamos muito contentes de ver nossos hospedes a vontade e se sentindo na propria casa. Quando recebemos um hospede entregamos tudo na mais perfeita ordem e condicoes de higiene. Fornecemos apenas o primeiro papel higienico e o primeiro sabonete. Nao fornecemos cafe da manha e nao temos servico de limpeza.
Recomendamos o cuidado de nao colocar toalhas molhadas sobre moveis ou janelas. De preferencia utilizar o varal que disponibilizamos de chao ou de pendurar na lavanderia. Pedimos todo o cuidado ao entrar e ao sair deixando sempre portas e janelas trancadas . O portao de entrada da casa deve ser verificado se ficou realmente fechado para seguranca de todos.

She was very welcoming..and gave us very helpful information about taxis, buses, etc..The garden is very nice and the historical area of Petropolis is enchnting...We had a very good time at the Imperial museum and Santos Dumont's house. The restaurants at Solar do Império and at Pousada da Alcobaça are fantastic. Transportation by bus to Rio is affordable and easy (took us 45 minutes) and were able to go see the Olympic games in Rio..

Myriam, her family and her house are the definition of a warm and welcoming Brazilian home. I could not have asked for a better place to stay, physically and spiritually. Physically - The house is in the Historical Center of Petropolis, which makes the main historical spots reachable by foot and transportation for other places very easy. The house is also a beautiful and peaceful place. Myriam also works for the preservation of the city's heritage, so she is a great person to guide you and share her knowledge about the city. Spiritually - Myriam and her family also have a background in art and theatre, and share a variety of interesting books about art, travel, philosophy, and as many different subjects you can imagine! Most importantly, Myriam's house is a place you feel at home very quickly because her house is full of love.

Myriam's house is centrally located, very convenient for walking around the historical centre of Petrópolis. The house is beautiful and the gardens are gorgeous, as is the view we had from the independent apartment where we stayed, which is right beside the generously sized swimming pool. The interior has vintage and charming decor, and a huge living room. Myriam was really helpful and attentive and equally gave us enough privacy to enjoy our stay. Our family was delighted, we really recommend this house.

Myriam's property was as lovely as the photos show it to be. In fact, there are a number of small apartments there, a nice pool, and an outdoor kitchen and barbeque area for all to use. The apartment where we stayed is charming and very, very clean. Two nice bedrooms and a spacious living room worked very well for our adult daughter, my husband and I. Myriam was very welcoming and a great hostess. While she says her English is not very good, we had no trouble communicating everything.

Myriam's house is a wonderful gem in Petropolis' historic district. It's an easy walk to sights in town such as the Crystal palace and the Imperialist Museum. It's really close to the Bohemia brewery, which I'd highly recommend both for the tour and for the restaurant. The place itself is broken up into a few apartments, and the one we stayed in was over the garage. It had a nice dated feel, though there were a couple leaks with the heavy rains that came through, no big deal. The nicest piece is definitely the great big living room which is ideal for drinking some "chopp" (beer) while chatting. We also opted to purchase breakfast and had it out here, which was nice with the morning light. Myriam also has some artwork she has done here which really gives the place a nice feel. The only downside was that the noise from the road was surprisingly loud, and when a truck rolls by on the road the windows shake a bit, which is odd considering how far back it is set from the road. The grounds of the property are beautiful, including the garden which you can take the steps up to behind the house where there are banana and avocado trees. The best piece of the place though is certainly the pool with beautiful tile work around, lounge chairs, and even some hammocks. When we got sun, it was a joy to go for a swim in the pool and hang out poolside after. Myriam was quite helpful with getting us set up and taking care of our few requests, even lending us an iron. We would definitely come back and stay at her house again if we were to return to Petropolis some day.

The private aparment was gorgeous and we had a fantastic stay. It is the private annexe of a lovely colonial house 10 minutes walk (5 from the Crystal Palace) from the historical attractions of Petropolis. The apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped. There is a lovely shared pool with ample outdoor space to relax when the weather is warm. There was space to park a car within the property.The local bar served amazing picanha and there was a well stocked shop both 2 minutes walk from the house. The host was very helpful and incredibly welcoming to us. I would highly recommend this apartment.

Sou carioca e tenho dois filhos nascidos em Petrópolis, onde moro há mais de 30 anos. Escolhi esta cidade, reconhecida internacionalmente por sua beleza, onde sou muito feliz. Petrópolis é herança do Brasil Imperial e da Primeira República: através de suas construções e monumentos conta nossa história no século XIX. Há anos trabalho pela sua preservação.

Como presidente da AMA CENTRO-HISTÓRICO, uma ONG criada para proteção deste patrimônio, pude expressar o amor que tenho pela cidade com ações que representaram importantes melhorias para o seu ambiente. Uma das mais importantes foi a conquista de um parque ecológico em pleno centro-histórico. Além desta, vários projetos renderam boas conquistas ao longo de 23 anos de luta.

Amar e cuidar de minha família, preservar e promover os valores culturais e o meio ambiente desta cidade tem sido minha missão de vida. Missão que se ampliou quando transformei minha casa tombada, num espaço para receber pessoas de todos os lugares do mundo que aqui chegam justamente para contemplar este belo patrimônio.
