Highs & Lows

  • Flavia and Kevin (the apartments’ hosts) are two of the most sincere and friendly people I have ever had the pleasure to meet.

  • The absolute serenity. I was surprised that such a busy street could be home to five peaceful apartments.

  • Breakfast to your door in an authentic market bag was divine. Bread, fruit, yoghurt, pastries, juice, milk. Yes.

  • CasaCau offers the freedom to live like a local.

  • There’s no lift, so if stairs aren’t your thing...be warned.
