Property description

This apartment is simple, tasty and rich in attributes. We call it the Fearless Frango.

We have 2 other apartments:
1) 1 bedroom in Bica (sleeps 4) close to Cais Sodre: http://www.homeaway.co.uk/p872619
2) Studio apartment (sleeps 2) close to Cais Sodre : http://www.vrbo.com/723396

On the second floor of small building (well over a century old) in the colourful, comfortable, chaotic, central Alfama district of Lisbon; a full renovation and modernisation of the apartment was completed in December 2013.

What’s on the menu of this establishment then?

2 bedrooms: the main bedroom is located at the back of the building and has a double glazed window. This means peace and a restful night’s sleep whilst still being able to step into the thick of the cool/earthy/traditional/reinvented/energetic/yet relaxed landscape as you exit the green street door downstairs. Whisper quiet airconditioning allows more control over the thermal and sonic environment. The bed is a double one and there’s a wardrobe too.

The second bedroom is a compact inner room. It has indirect light as well as ventilation from a high-mounted sliding window. It also has its own dedicated climate control unit. There is a “step-in” type closet which has a lot of storage space and can double as a little dressing room. Equipped with a full sized double bed. Remember, although small, it is private and fully functional as a second bedroom. Allocate it to the couple that didn’t help with the travel arrangements or cover their share of the food and wine bills. We painted it in a rich mossy green on the outside to create the impression that the room was a kind of cube within the greater apartment volume: hope you notice it.

The lounge is made by the high shuttered double doors that open onto the thin stone “Pombalesque” balcony. Not big enough to put a chair on but ok to stand at the railing, vinho verde in hand looking regally down on the people current on Rua dos Remédios below. Plenty of light and air can make its way inside. The doors are double glazed so shutting them cuts out the street noise. Shut out all the light and any stray decibels with the heavy vintage wood shutters.

Doubling as the dining area this room has a large dining table: good for eating, good for the laptops.

Did I mention that the floors are all pristine pine planks? They are, except for the tiles kitchen and bathroom.

Fast, unlimited wifi internet and over 100 channels of IP TV on a 32? flat screen TV come as standard.

There is also a telephone from which you can make local and international calls. We keep it topped up with units so you will be able to at least make a few free calls home.

Let’s move into the kitchen. Beautiful and functional. Green and grey ceramics interspersed with hand-made Sintra azulejos on the walls. Granite tops from the Alentejo region across the Tagus River. Integrated German Teka appliances: washing machine, dishwasher and large fridge freezer.

The modern bathroom has been designed to cater for those who enjoy bathing as well as a good hard shower. The bath is small but functional and the water pressure is good for those who prefer to shower (the shower is over the bath).

Stay at the Frango. A bit of luxury in the chaotic, colourful neighbourhood that is Alfama.

Alfama is an old part of Lisbon known for its mazes of narrow cobbled streets crammed with small apartment buildings, façades flying washlines of laundry, whose ground floors frequently house grocery stores, cafés and restaurants.

The Fado museum is a few minutes walk away, the famous church of Sao Vincente de Fora, and lots of Fado restaurants - in fact there's one right opposite our apartment called Sr Fado.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: We are South African and own a holiday rentals business in Cape Town which has been operating for the last 12 years. Our company here is called Rentals Cape Town.com and we've recently launched our global brand Accommodation Daddy .Com.

Why São Vicente de Fora, Lisbon, Portugal:
We love Lisboa and wanted to own property in one of the most scenic and oldest parts of Lisbon. We've just renovated our apartment and equipped it with all the things we like in a home. And we do like our luxuries so you're bound to be comfortable in our Frango. We also like the fact that there is a small Pingo Doce down the road for groceries and a larger state-of-the-art one in Rua Madaleina which is about a 20 minute walk away.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Central, close to 2 metros (Terreiro do Paco & Santa Apolonia), listen to Fado at night for free, the beautiful Lisbon Street lamp hanging opposite our balcony, walk to Santa Appolonia to Pingo Doce and suddenly find you have a few thousand new neighbours in the form of 3 cruise ships lined up along the wharf. Lots of view points to take your vinho verde and some glasses - Portas do Sol, Castello Sao Jorge, park above the Panteo Nationale..the list is endless.
