On Sundays, there is a bike lane connecting Avenida Indianópolis ( one parallel to Av. Ceci, where I am located) to Ibirapuera Park, Villa Lobos Park, Avenida Paulista and downtown. It's a great opportunity for you to get to know the city ( I can provide you info on how to rent bikes).
There's a direct bus from home to Congonhas Airport, taxis are also very easy to catch. If you are coming from the International Airport, I will be glad to give you options to reach the apartment according to your budget ( the international airport is located 25 km from the city).
It takes about 25 minutes from the flat to Avenida Paulista ( the heart of the city) by subway. Every guest receives a FGP "Fabi's Guest Package" which includes: Subway map, city map, neighborhood map with local businesses and a TIME OUT Magazine - São Paulo edition - in English.
Every Thursday there's a a big farmer's market right in front of the building. You will have by your door fresh vegetables, fruits and local delicacies. Tip: bargaining is mandatory and expected in a Brazilian farmer's market.
The building has doormen 24/7 and surveillance cameras. It's pretty safe!

A nossa estadia na casa da Fabi foi excelente! O prédio é perto do aeroporto de Congonhas e perto da São Paulo Expo (centro Imigrantes), onde nós fomos. Também é perto da estação de Metro São Lucas e andei de metrô para ir a Avenida Paulista. Tem uma padaria muito boa a dois quarteirões e um mercado grande a mais ou menos 3 quarteirões, o que nos ajudou muito. A Fabi e o marido são pessoas muito gentis e nos sentimos em casa! Os porteiros do predio tambem nos trataram muito bem. Somente achei que a rua e as adjacentes não tem muito movimento de pedestres, tem muito carro circulando, mas muito pouco pedestre. Fora isso foi tudo excelente!
Nossa estadia foi ótima. O apartamento é muito agradável, confortável e com uma bela decoração. Os funcionários são gentís e atenciosos. Ficamos muito satisfeitos. Agradeçemos à Fabi também pela atenção e gentileza.
Fabi's apartment is very clean and stylish. Lots of neat art work! Its within walking distance to markets and restaurants. She was very helpful in giving us information on how to get around. Highly recommended and in a safe environment.
Fabi and her apartment were amazing! I've stayed at a few airbnb reservations before, but none as welcoming and helpful as Fabi. She even had a welcome package complete with candy and crackers waiting for us at her apartment. The apartment is in a nice, safe part of Sao Paulo with a short taxi ride ($10 reails) to the metro. During the day you can definitely walk the 15 minutes without feeling uneasy.
The apartment feels like home. Very beautifully decorated. Very very clean and accomodating. And her building doormen were incredibly helpful and nice.
Fabi always kept in touch and wrote detailed emails of instructions every step of the way, as well.
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND FABI! Thanks again for our great stay :)
I am a first time airbnb user and Fabi was my first host. I cannot begin to explain how absolutely incredible she is. We traveled to Sao Paulo during the World Cup and from day one she was there to help answer my questions. Although we never met in person, because she was working out of the country, she was always there via email and airbnb to help us. The doormen at her apartment complex and Paula, the taxi driver, were also very friendly and trustworthy. I would highly recommend her place again. It's just as advertised; beautiful and the area is safe. Obrigato, Fabi!
El apartamento fue un lugar muy cálido, bonito, en un barrio muy exclusivo y tranquilo.
FABI siempre dispuesta a ayudar en todo a nosotros. Las personas del edificio muy buenos, muy amables.
la verdad mi familia y yo no tenemos palabras para agradecer a FABI y a JOSE PABLO. Excelentes personas.
Everything was great. Fabi gave me all the help and informations I needed. Nice area, safe and quiet. Thanks for having me I will be back.
I am a photographer based in São Paulo, one of the most exciting mega cities in world. I love to meet new people, and I believe everybody has something interesting to teach me.
I've been traveling around the world for many years and I can blend pretty well wherever I am placed.
I am very social but I deeply appreciate my moments of silence and introspection.
