I'm a singer, composer and musicologist. I lived ten years in Europe (Netherlands, France and Italy). I do shows, I translate books and courses related to music.
Ligiana was very helpful in making arrangements for her friend to help us into her apartment since she was out of town. We arrived in the daytime, so it was more comfortable getting situated in the neighborhood. The apartment was clean and cozy and there's a spacious living room. My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights and the bed was slightly small (and quite firm), but we are fairly tall people, so that made a difference. There's a quaint little backyard, which we didn't get to take much advantage of because we found our meals at cafes and restaurants, etc., which there are plenty of in the surrounding blocks.
This is definitely a very great apartment which we enjoyed a lot for many hours during our stay - Sao Paulo welcomed us with a lots of rain:-( The area is safe and many shops, restaurants and everything else is minutes to walk or a short taxi ride away. Taxi stop is 50m from the apartment and there were always some. To the next metro station are buses to shorten the 10 minutes walk. Metro definitely useful for longer rides as traffic is crazy.
Ligiana's apartment is the place where you must stay when in SP. It is perfect! I recommend.
Great experience!! I recommend
