Welcome to Cerro Bellavista - the most authentic and central area of Valparaiso. Our loft is in the centre of the hill, with breathtaking views where you feel like floating over the roofs of Valparaiso. The loft is a cosy studio apartment, with two terraces, overlooking the Pacific and Bay of Valparaiso and this dazzling city, which became part of the UNESCO world heritage in 2003.
The studio has a comfortable bed-sitting room with a writing desk overlooking the sea, a neat kitchen area with a galley table, a tiled bath, enough closet space - and those two terraces. One terrace is on the roof and provides a birdseye view of Valparaiso, the other is at the entrance to the apartment with a sofa and a table to have your morning coffee and a cosy hammock to end a day smoothly with a glas of wine. The terrace at the entrance is partially roofed to protect from the sun.
The studio is unique! For its beautiful views, its finishing of recycled Oregon pine doors and woodwork and the terraces that let you live half in, half out - and float above a city that is both lovely and slightly mad. The sun makes it bright and luminous, with the terraces it stays airy in summer.
Everything you will need for your stay is provided: dishes, cutlery, cooking utensiles, linen and towels. You have an own laundry machine. The studio is on the 3rd floor of a house built earthquake safe in 2005 with an inner patio. You reach the apartment by stairs and have access to FREE WIFI in the studio and on the terraces.
You will adore the neighbourhood of Cerro Bellavista! We live here since 2013 and fell completely in love with our barrio. It is home of many artists and writers but kept its authentic charm. You will immediatly feel like part of the community rather than like a short term visitor to this town.
Located on a hill above city centre, the house is close enough to downtown but also far enough away to provide a nice and quiet space where to escape. Access is on foot - a mere 250 steps up a staircase - or by collective taxi from the Plaza Ecuador below - or by funicular railway, the one called Espiritu Santo.
Cerro Bellavista neighbourhood also includes the mayor sights of Valparaiso: La Sebastiana, the home of Pablo Neruda and now a museum and community centre, just up the street and the Museo Cielo Abierto, Valpos first grafitti hotspot in the early 1990s. The area is also more and more becoming an alternative option for going out at night with some of towns best restaurants, little cafes and handicraft shops. However, it is also a plain old residential neighbourhood and not overrun by tourists like Cerro Alegre or Cerro Concepcion.
You will be welcomed us, Cornelia and Johannes. We own the house since 2014 and invite you to a beer in our German restaurant (200 meters from the house uphill) for getting started and give you first orientation and some insiders about Valpo.
