Lisbon apartment description

The Castelo (castle) apartment is a one bedroom apartment in an 18th century building, near the top of the hill in the oldest neighborhood of Lisbon. A few steps away is Castelo Sao Jorge, with its terrace and walls nestled on the highest point of the hill, affording a 360 degree view of Lisbon, the magnificent river Tagus, and the other 6 hills undulating across the city. Down the hill is the majestic main cathedral Se, built in 1050. The cathedral’s tower can be seen from the balcony of the apartment, along with a partial view of the river. The modern 75m2 (800ft2) apartment is filled with natural light, coming through 5 double glass windows/ doors leading to the 2 balconies. It retains traditional Portuguese character throughout. Amenities include security camera, central audio system, hydro message shower cabin, wireless internet, granite and marble bathroom and kitchen. Upon arrival at the apartment, you will be greeted by a local who can provide help 24/7.

During the day, the castle is a popular attraction. At sunset, the neighborhood reverts to a peaceful tranquility, brimming with historical elegance, perfect for romantic strolls on narrow winding cobblestone streets. (Some guests have recommended turning off all the lights in the apartment at night, and opening all the shutters, to bathe in the amber glow from the street lamps, the sparkling lights from the rustic buildings, and the silvery gleam of the moon). Enjoy relaxed dinners at nearby family run restaurants, and drinks at hilltop cafes overlooking the city and its sparkling lights. Or, visit Resto do Chapito, down the block, a restaurant, cafe and bar, with a terrace famed for its spectacular view of the city and the river. And for a relaxing time, visit the top-ranked wine bar around the corner of the building, where the owner will explain to you about all the wine regions in Portugal.

The apartment is easy to reach by mini bus, tram or taxi from other downtown locations. The bus stop is 10m (30ft) from the apartment (frequency: 15 minutes), and the whimsical tram station is a 3 minute walk. Access to other neighborhoods by foot is quick: Baixa (at the bottom of the hill) in 5-10 minutes, Chiado in 15 minutes, and a major subway station in 10-15 minutes. (A guide to finding short cuts for walking is offered in the welcome book.) Car rental is absolutely not needed in Lisbon. The international airport is approximately 15 minutes away by taxi (12 to 20 euros).
