Overview

Photos and Description of this Santa Catarina holiday house

Charming antique thematic house for up to 15 people

Portuguese Soul is a unique place located in historical Lisbon, ideal for families or group of friends. It is a completely renovated house, a showroom of our history, tradition and heritage.

This antique charming building is located in the heart of the city, in Santa Catarina. It comprises 3 apartments rented all together and is prepared for up to 15 guests. No elevator.

This is a thematic house. The Portuguese Discoveries floor has a double bedroom, a living room (with a double sofa bed and a single bed), a kitchen and one bathroom. The Poets floor has a double bedroom, a living room (with double sofa bed), a kitchen and one bathroom. The Fado Music floor has three double bedrooms (28 Tram, Portuguese Embroidery and Tiles rooms), a kitchen and two bathrooms.

Staying here is like going back in time.

At the Portuguese Soul house, you will be immersed in an antique environment with its paintings, frescos, wooden ceilings, vintage furniture, handmade traditional tiles and embroidery. There are more than 10 crystal chandeliers to "brighten" your stay. It offers portuguese beautiful tableware and high quality bed linen.

With a perfect location in the historic center of Lisbon, you will be at a walking distance from many typical neighbourhoods such as Chiado, Principe Real, Baixa and Bairro Alto; close to the apartments, there are Fado houses, bars, restaurants, monuments, churches, plazas and incredible sceneries that will captivate you, like Miradouro of Santa Catarina (2 min. walk). “Elevador da Bica,” a yellow funicular that chugges down the hill towards the river is a must visit (5 min. walk). The 28 tram stop is right at your doorstep. It will take you over Lisbon’s 7 hills whenever you please.

We love to use recycled antique furniture and Portuguese artcraft, we have a passion for paintings and small details. The result are perfect places for nourishing your mind and soul!

We hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we have enjoyed bringing it to life.

Amazing house and location!

  • 5 of 5

9 of us stayed in this beautiful,individually designed house for 3 nights. We rented the whole house and were not disappointed. Every room is immaculate with everything you could need. The location is wonderful - quiet but cloase to everthing you would want to see day and night. Noobai bar and amazing look out at Santa Catarina just round the corner. The owners/designers met us on arrival and could not have been more helpful. We had th best weekend - dont hesitate - book and go. I would go back in an instant !!

Very, very nice house !

  • 5 of 5

Le logement est idéalement bien situé: au centre de la ville , proche du métro, des commerces et pourtant il n'y a pas de nuisance sonore car le quartier est très calme.

La maison est très bien équipée, rien ne manque et la décoration est de très bon goût: sobre, typique, jolies couleurs, beau mobilier. Les lits sont très confortables. Les salles de bain sont très jolies et fonctionnelles (l'eau est bien chaude !) Il y a de la vaisselle en suffisance, lave-vaisselle, lave-linge, micro-ondes, etc....La propreté est irréprochable !

La maison est divisée en 3 petits appartements indépendants.

Cette maison convient parfaitement pour un groupe (nous étions 9, 4 couples + 1 single) et il y avait encore de la place...(14-15 personnes en comptant les divans-lits)

Seul tout petit bémol: deux chambres doubles ne sont déparées que par une paroi vitrée et un rideau en dentelle...pas terrible pour l'intimité de deux couples :) mais pas embêtant pour une famille avec enfants...

Je recommande chaudement cette très jolie maison où je reviendrai bien volontiers !

Amazing stay in historical Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay,in this beautiful property ,it really is in the middle of historic Lisbon. It is located near Chiado area, but also by other neighbourhoods such as Principe Real, Baixa and Bairro Alto; all of them, within walking distance. Close to the apartments, are Fado houses, bars, restaurants, monuments, churches, plazas and incredible buildings.

You can walk everywhere although metro/trams are also nearby. The owners were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, I had mentioned my daughter loved the famous Portuguese custard tarts and as it was her birthday they brought some in, so we could have them with our cup of tea on arrival. We visited Sintra which was beautiful but unfortunately we could not stay long enough to visit the Palace and Castle so will definitely be back. I thoroughly recommend this property if you want to stay in Lisbon.

Superb acomodation and location!!

  • 5 of 5

5* We booked this accommodation for 9 of us for a celebratory weekend away. Ana made the booking very easy and answered any questions that we had beforehand, meeting us at the apartments upon arrival.

Very clean, exemplary attention to detail, and a great location for what we required. We would definitely recommend this as a place to stay!! Also if transfers and any activities are required (we booked two Tuk-Tuk's for 2.5 hours which picked us up and dropped us off from the apartments), then speak to Jorge at www.portugal4fun.com as it all helped to make a memorable weekend.

Thanks again Ana :o)

Charming place in great strategic Location!

  • 4 of 5

These are two beautiful apartments (right next to each other) in a rypical old building of Lisbon (3 Levels), furnished with great creativity and charme... You find them in the lively Santa Catarina, in the best shopping area and in convenient walking distance to the Train Station Cais do Sodre and the river Tejo, Alfama, the rekaxing parc Estrela and Most other sites. The apartments are equipped with a great coffeemachine and all that's needed for cooking (exceot oven). We had wonderful meals around the Table of apt 4...(with 7 People))..Mouraria Santa Catarina is right around the corner, great place for a sun downer. The owner Ana Nunes was very welcoming and kind and took care of all questions right away. We felt like real Lisboetas right away there! Would love to come back to this cool place in this wonderful city!

During your stay, you will be able to experience the real taste of Lisbon as a true local. Not only will you be located near the classy Chiado area, but also by other typical neighbourhoods such as Principe Real, Baixa and Bairro Alto; all of them, within walking distance.

Close to the house, the Fado houses, bars, restaurants, monuments, churches, plazas and incredible sceneries will captivate you.

Only at 2 min. walk, you will find yourself at the Miradouro of Santa Catarina, one of the most famous in Lisbon for its stone figure of Adamastor, a mythical sea monster from the epic poem "Os Lusíadas"; all this with a scenic look over the Tagus River.

Another possibility at a 5 min. walk is taking the lively “Elevador da Bica,” a yellow funicular chugging down the hill towards the river.

The 28 tram stop is right at your doorstep. It will take you over Lisbon’s 7 hills whenever you please.

The subway station Baixa/Chiado is at a 10 min. walk (to go to the airport) and the train station is at 15 (to go to Belém, Estoril and Cascais).

Taxis are also widely available.
