The apartment is situated in the historical neighborhood of Santa Catarina bearing a unique charm famous for its Palaces, Churches and its scenic belvedere also know by “Adamastor” the Sea Monster.

Situated in a quiet street, however within a walking distance from theaters, museums restaurants, coffees and its famous esplanades, viewpoints, shopping and commercial centers, services and many other attractions, the apartment is very near from the trendy Bairro Alto and the chic Chiado, which for many are considered the most emblematic and central locations in Lisbon.

Within 5 minutes walking, you will be in the heart of the night life neighborhood – Bairro Alto – where you can find both traditional and more sophisticated restaurants, outdoor cafes, bars, second hand clothing, record shops, book stores and art galleries (further details on its more than 250+ commerce shops, restaurants, bars, discotheques, art galleries and museums could be seen at www.ilovebairroalto.com). A bit further you are at the center of the chic Chiado (wealthiest area in Lisbon).

Close to all types of transportation, from the apartment you can easily reach the famous tram 28 that would take you to all the important sites such as Basílica da Estrela, Palácio de São Bento (parliament), Praça do Comércio (largest square in Europe) and up to the Castelo de São Jorge (St. George’s Castle) or just connect you with the underground station at Baixa Chiado. Glória, Bica and Santa Justa Elevators are also on a walking distance, so you don´t need a car to make your way in Lisbon.

Rossio station is also within a close distance, where you can catch the train until last stop at Sintra classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sintra).

Situated just a few blocks away from the apartment towards the river, you will find Cais do Sodré station, from where you can take the ferry to cross the Tagus river to Cacilhas for the shrine of Christ King or the trains to Estoril famous for its casino, the Palace Hotel where James Bond Movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1969 was taped with its finest beaches or until the last stop to Cascais which was former fishing village that gained fame as a resort for Portugal's royal family in the late 19th century and early 20th century and that during the World War II has became home to many of the exiled wealthy families of Europe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cascais).

Great stay in apartment full of character in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The property was located in a quiet side street very near to Bairro Alto and very convenient for all our needs as a family of 4. The owners were extremely helpful before and during our stay and arranged for a taxi driver to meet us from Lisbon Airport where we were dropping off our hire car. Soon after we arrived , Miguel came over to meet us and answer any questions we had and to ensure we knew where and what all the facilities were. He also filled us in on some nearby restaurants and places of interest and how best to travel around. The rooms were very well furnished and stylish and the whole apartment was surprisingly spacious and deceptive from the front door as there was plenty of room with an added extension at the back.

We spent most of our days out and about once we had breakfast but enjoyed coming back to our own place in the middle of this wonderful city. This was our first time in Lisbon having spent a couple of times before in the Algarve which we also loved and hope to come back to both again very soon. If we do I would probably start in Lisbon next time and then move to the Algarve to rest the body from all those trips up and down the hills of Lisbon! But all worth it in the end. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days and nights in Lisbon and can recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay with character and convenience. Many thanks and regards to Miguel and Fatima. Victor and family . Dublin

Fantastic apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable apartment, in a great location. We were warmly greeted by Fatima's father when we arrived, in the taxi that Fatima had arranged to pick us up at the airport. The apartment was very clean and roomy, and the outdoor space is a real bonus.

Very close to shops, restaurants and a variety of public transport.

Don't be afraid to use the many varieties of public transport as they are plentiful and cheap. All the locals we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Sintra is a must by train. Carcavelos is a busy seaside resort, with Estoril just as nice, but quieter and ideal for families.

Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Paul, Ruth, Bill and Kathryn.

Perfect location to stay in Lisbon!

  • 5 of 5

This home is lovely, suitable for a family of 4, and in an ideal location. It's a perfect home base for seeing all the sites in and around Lisbon. Minutes walk to shops, and more restaurants than you can imagine. We walked everywhere including to the train for a day trip to the coastal towns, and the "other train station" for a 40 mins trip to Sintra, a spot not to be missed! The owners are gracious, thinking about all the extras one might need, including free international calls during the evening and early AM hours. They helped us with finding the garage parking and transporting our luggage to and from the apartment. We wish we were still in Lisbon, staying at this terrific apartment, and enjoying this lively and fun city. We will be back and certainly hope we can once again stay here.

Delightful & Charming

  • 5 of 5

First of all thank you so much for all of your help while we visited and stayed in your lovely home. The apartment was well situated in a beautiful neighborhood with amazing restaurants. Many sights were easily accessed by walking and the tour bus stops close by. Your home is so charming and cozy. We had an amazing time and would hope to come back and visit sometime soon. The owner was always accessible to us and willing to be of assistance. The apartment offered everything possible and was clean and beautiful. I give this place an A++

A Traveller’s delight!

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes apartments’ web pictures are so flattering that the reality can disappoint.... but not here! It is a beautifully appointed, modern apartment (decorated by Fatima!) in the cobble stoned, traffic -controlled area of the old city. The apartment was spacious with a large and private back garden patio. Best of all it was close to buses, trains, trams, the funicular and the Metro as well as a great variety of restaurants. Miguel was a most informative, sensitive and efficient host who did all he could to ensure our visit was thoroughly enjoyable.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Fatima's and Miguel's apartment. They are superb communicators, very welcoming and couldn't be more helpful; the apartment is very comfortable and well equipped, and it is in a fantastic neighbourhood.
