Good place not too far from Lisbon
While this apartment is not in Lisbon, it is less than 30 minutes away from Lisbon city center (by public bus). And, it is within walking distance to the Belem tower and the Jeronimos monastery. Even that Belen receives a lot of visitors, the apartment is a few blocks away of the crowds which is really good. Public transportation is great, you have a lot of options and if you are lucky you might ride an old style street car. My son loved ridding the old style but most of the time you get the regular more modern type or buses. I would suggest getting a daily pass or tourist card.
There are a few coffee shops nearby, our favorite was Versailles which is a couple of blocks away, the pasteis de nata are amazing. There are also good restaurants nearby, Rui de Pregos is really good.
As said, it is really close to Belem attractions. Please note that the tower and the monastery are close on Mondays. Going to Sintra is quite easy, you could either take a taxi (for about 20 euros one way) or take the train (11 euros one way for our family of four). If you go to Sintra, I would suggest arriving as early as you can, it gets very, very busy.
There are parking spaces very close to the apartment and once we arrived we didn't use our car until we left, as mentioned public transportation is great.
The apartment is in a closed street with other similar apartments.... not all of them are as a well maintained as the apartment we stayed and the street is not as charming as I would have expected but it is a good place. I felt safe and secured at all times. Filipa is a great host, both check-in and check-out were very easy. My only regret is not staying more days in Lisbon/Belem.
Great host, very responsive. Interesting character property
The host was very accommodating and responsive. The property is as described, cozy and with a quirky character. Make sure that you are aware that this property location as it is not near to the city centre, however it was in an excellent location if you need to get to the Lisbon Congress Centre.
Great location; filled with charm
Such a lovely place! Hundreds of years old in the Belem area of Lisbon. Many great places to eat within walking distance. Our hostess, Filipa, was a gem. Helpful, personable, responsive. Such a joy to have stayed here.
Nice place to stay when you like to live in a Portugese surrounding
Hello, we enjoyed our stay last week. We are familiar with life in Portugal and visited Lissabon many times. The house is situated in a nice spot in the middle of what seems a street with small houses. But once you are inside the house it is comfotable, clean and has all the facilities. So, if you want to experience Portugese life, give it a try. And thanks to Filippa, the owner of the house, who is very professional in what she is doing.

Cute, clean, convenient
What a lovely, charming home in Lisbon! We loved the pretty little street with its cats and dogs. It was within comfortable waking distance of the sites we wanted to see in Belem. Filipa was friendly and helpful. All in all a great place to stay!
It was really a pleasure to host such a lovely couple!
