About José Luís Azevedo

I was born in 1972 and I am a designer.

I live in the apartment across the one I am renting. I was in charge of both apartments’ full renovation. I love the old quarters of Lisbon and their historic buildings. I always wanted to live in this part of town.

I love meeting people from abroad and I deal with my guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between.

I try to be as helpful as I can in order to make you feel truly at home.

José Luís Azevedo purchased this apartment in 2008

Why José Luís Azevedo chose Lisbon City

I specially picked this neighborhood to live in, because it’s undergoing an interesting transformation - from heavy industry and naval related commerce and services to becoming “Lisbon’s Hip District” .

Another great advantage of this neighborhood is that you can walk to all the busiest areas in downtown and you have all main transports and station near bye to take you everywhere else (including the beach). There are also all sorts of restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, etc. all around. Also, in the center, it is still one of the few areas where you can find a place to park. Two blocks away, there are two public parkings for your car.

This is an area that is still not too touristic and feels truly Lisboan without being excessively “popular.”

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment has a great vibe. It's airy and full of sunlight all year round. It's in a high floor, so you have more privacy, security, sunlight and less impact from the street.

The building is original from the XVIIIth century, right after the great earthquake of Lisbon which took place in 1755. It was built in a typical 'Pombalino' style, a type of construction and architecture that are protected by law and candidate to UNESCO's World Heritage Patrimony classification. The building is mainly assembled with wooden beams, in a “cage” like structure inspired in naval construction from the period. A type of construction quite advanced for its time and considered to be the first anti-earthquake type of construction in the world. It is flexible, but it doesn’t break.

The renovation of the building and the apartment took in consideration this historical heritage. However, you will find a modern apartment with sound proofing on the ceilings and windows and all you should expect from a modern home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Eine schöne Ferienwohnung im Stadtteil Santos-o-Velho im Zentrum Lissabons

Die Ferienwohnung liegt in der vierten Etage eines stilvoll renovierten Hauses in der Rua da Boavista 120.

Wir, zwei Ehepaare, waren im März 2013 für drei Tage in der Wohnung und haben uns dort sehr wohlgeführt. Der Empfang durch den Vermieter, Herrn José Luís Azevedo war ausgesprochen freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung besitzt zwei geräumige Schlafzimmer, ein Badezimmer, eine separate Essküche und ein sehr einladend eingerichtetes, großes Wohnzimmer sowie einen kleineren Abstellraum. Gut geeignet ist die Wohnung für zwei bis vier Personen. Die Wohnung ist sehr sonnig, ruhig, vollständig geschmackvoll renoviert mit Liebe zum Detail. Sie bietet kostenloses Wireless-Internet und Kabel-TV (80 internationale Sender).



Von der Wohnung aus ist das Zentrum von Lissabon gut zu Fuß zu erreichen, man kann natürlich auch die historischen Straßenbahnen nehmen, die durch die Rua da BoaVista zockeln. In der Nähe befinden sich einige gute und reelle Restaurants, Herr Azevedo berät hierzu seine Gäste gerne.



Hier noch eine kleine Besonderheit des Hauses : unten im Hausflur befindet sich neben dem Treppenhaus eine kleine Schusterwerkstatt, wo ein älterer, freundlicher Herr beim Licht einer kleinen Lampe Schuhe repariert. Er hatte gut zu tun.



Wenn wir noch einmal zu viert nach Lissabon reisen sollten, würden wir diese Wohnung wieder gerne mieten.

living amongst the nicest people in the world

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I just came back from a wonderful 10-day vacation in Portugal and Spain. We opted for an apartment in lieu of a hotel. I am glad we did! The people in Portugal were the nicest and the most genuinly friendly people I have ever met. Our host was definitely one of them. Our fantastic host, Jose Luis greeted us with open arms and heart. He helped us plan our trip, recommended places for us to eat, as well as simply chatting with us, making us truly feel at home. The apartment was super clean and tidy and contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to feel like they live amongst friends.

Darling apartment, fantastic location and the owner José is a delight!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more perfect location, apartment and welcome while in Lisbon. José is the perfect host and our week stay was amazing. The sunlight in the apartment was so lovely and made it even more cozy. Perfect location and the neighborhood is full of adorable restaurants and shops. Lisbon is such a great city. We were also close to one of the rail stations so we took a day trip on Christmas to the beach. I highly recommend this apartment to stay in when you go to Lisbon.

Great apartment and amazing host!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a great place to stay to explore Lisbon. Near local restaurants, local transportation and the waterfront, it is neat, quiet, well equipped and perfect for two couples. 4th floor walk up, beds are comfortable, the kitchen cozy and the living room comfortable. Our host was wonderful, he asked us about our interests and then gave recommendations about where and how to explore in Liston in fluent English. We explored museums, gardens, castles and restaurants. Be sure to ask Jose about the market and the restaurants and shops there. He gave us great advice about transportation options from the airport and was super helpful in many ways, helping us recover a lost item after we had left the city. We would love to come back and would definitely stay at this terrific apartment again.

Wonderful Apartment, Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped. It is within easy walking distance of most of the major sights and is easy to reach from the airport by metro. The apartment also has modern noise reducing windows and interior shutters, so sleeping in is not a problem. The apartment is on the upper floor which also makes it bright and airy and allows for a great view from the windows. José, the owner, could not have been more helpful and he even checked on me during the days I was there to see if I needed anything and if everything was okay. I very much enjoyed my stay at the apartment and I hope to return in the near future. Thank you, Josè, for being such a gracious host.

Perfect location for stay in Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice, clean and well-kept. We stayed there with two kids and had more than enough space.

The description is absolutely fitting.

It is very well situated, public transportation is very close and you can also walk the short distance to restaurants, shops, bars etc. in Bairro Alto.

For people who are sensitive to noise it might be too loud on weekend nights, as bars are nearby. But you can either live directly downtown or somewhere outside and quiet. For us and our kids it was not a negative issue.

José was a very nice host, he gave us a lot of tips what to do and where to go to in Lisbon. He was always open for questions and was very helpful.

We would definitely reccommend it to friends and relatives (and already have) and would stay there again.
