We offer you a luxury service giving you the feeling of living in the heart of the historic Lisbon in a quiet and genuine neighborhood enjoying Portuguese hospitality and the authentic city life (Bairro Alto and Chiado).

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 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 (

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 (

In the apartment, you will also find city maps and additional tips regarding the monuments, museums, restaurants, night life, Fado houses, beaches and what’s going on in Lisbon.

Loved, Loved, Loved the apartment. What a fabulous place to stay, the very best I have stayed in, so clean & absolutely everything was so well thought out there was nothing more you could wish for. The decor was outstanding and Miguel who came to the apartment explained everything that we needed and places to go and so friendly. Apartment was spot on for places to go and trams & trains station so near to get to. We travelled everywhere that we wanted to see in 4 days, it was so easy. I would recommend to everyone. Thank you to Fatima & Miguel for letting us share your wonderful home. Would love to visit again.

Clean, comfortable home in hilly, historic neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Fatima and Miguel kindly provided a great introduction to Lisbon and helped with our taxi and flight details. The kitchen is so well equipped and combo clothes washer/dryer was a welcome sight! The apartment is convenient to Chiado Square and the park overlooking the river provided a spot to enjoy lovely sunsets. We ate excellent seafood at Zapata's Restaurant all 3 nights and burned the extra pastry calories climbing the steep hills in this lively working-class neighborhood.

Wonderful hosts. Great location. Beautiful apartment.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment in Lisbon. Fatima and Miguel were wonderful hosts. Super responsive with all of our needs, requests, and questions. Far better than a concierge at a hotel! The neighborhood was quiet but only a very short walk away from beautiful views, great restaurants, and very fun apartments. The apartment itself was historic but updated- very modern and clean with all necessary amenities. We loved the enclosed patios to enjoy the weather without needing to leave the apartment. They were so helpful in acquiring a crib and highchair for our family and letting us in the apartment early. If I had to find a complaint it would be that we could not figure out how to use the washer/ dryer which left us with many damp clothes- although we quickly learned that is true of laundry machines in the country in general. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful Poperty with 5Star Service from Owners

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spotless. Miguel was extremely informative and helpful. The area was safe with very good restaurants within walking distance. Miguel arranged for our pickup and drop off at the airport. The apartment was equipped with everything a traveler could ask for.

The WiFi worked best in the living room. Don't hesitate to book this property. Both the apartment and the owners were wonderful. Thanks Miguel for all of your help. .....Loved our stay in beautiful Lisbon

Just two little hints. The front door key can be tricky at first. Just be patient. Also, if you use the outdoor space, do not close the patio doors all of the way or you may be locked out on the patio.
