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.

Please feel free to contact us through the Airbnb message system. We’re looking forward to meet you.

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.
