Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, living room, dining room, 1 full bathroom, kitchen, sleeps up to 2

In the center of town, close to the Parliament, a short walking distance to Chiado and Bairro Alto, with their nightlife, shops, museums and theatres, and on the route of tram 28, the most scenic tram in Lisbon...

The building underwent full renovation in 2004 and the project was awarded the second prize in an yearly competition that appraises the reconstruction of old town buildings throughout Portugal. Its major source of beauty are the glazed tiles (azulejos), dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, which are different from floor to floor, thus rendering each apartment unique.

Why Ana Cardoso chose Lisbon

I saw the glazed tiles and the wooden floors and that was it -- decision taken! Also, I had attended school very close by, so everything felt like home.

Excellent Apartment

The apartment is centrally located , spacious and authentically renovated to modern day standards whilst retaining an "old" feel.

We were warmly welcomed by Helena and given a comprehensive tour of the apartment .

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lisbon and highly recommend this delightful apartment.

Thankyou Ana and Helena

A memorable stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Anna's apartment four nights and could not have been more satisfied. First, my communications with Anna were always replied to in timely fashion. The directions for the train from the airport to the apartment good not have been easier. While Anna was not available at the time of my check in, Helena was there to meet me at the door and go over the basic and answer all of my questions. Not only that but since I had an early flight she also arraigned a taxi to pick me up on the morning of my departure. As for the apartment, it was just as it looks in the photos. A beautiful spotless place to call home for four nights located in the middle of everything. The Famous #28 trolley passes right by the front door and a great way to see part of the city landscape. When going to other parts of town the walk to make connections is no more than twenty minutes including the #15E trolley to the Monastery of Jeronimos or the Rossio Train Station to Sintra. As for the neighborhood itself there are so may options for dinning, coffee and entertainment. It proved to be the perfect place to stay for the perfect vacation!

Charming and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Great location, within walking distance to many of the areas highlights. If walking hills and cobblestone is an issue you can easily catch tram 28. Just make sure you take the time to figure out what direction you are going ☺️ The owners are helpful beyond expectation, even reserved a cab for us when I inquired how to call one. The property is beautiful and the bakery across the street is great! I would return.

Beautiful apartment, central location, above-and beyond hospitality

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was obviously renovated by someone with a great artistic flair and a respect for the unique Portuguese aesthetic. The street at times can be a bit chaotic , with narrow sidewalks and traffic, but the apartment is an oasis of calm. So many small details were thought of - guide books and fiction, arranged according to language,, a large music collection, laundry and instructions on hanging clothes on the outdoor line, a bottle of wine, etc. Helena was extremely attentive and available. She recommended a great affordable nearby restaurant, called for a cab, and simply had a friendly, engaged manner. A great place!

Five to ten minutes walking distance you'll find bohemian Bairro Alto, with its nightlife and alternative shops. A couple of steps further you're in Chiado, a more sophisticated district, with old-style cafes, theaters, and renowned shops.

Head in that same direction strolling along the narrow streets closer to the river and you can enjoy nice views of Lisbon and the river from Miradouro (Belvedere) Santa Catarina.

Walking a few minutes the opposite direction as you leave the apartment, you find S. Bento street with its antique shops and the national parliament. Santos, labeled the 'design district' for its cluster of shops dedicated to design, is 2,000 feet (600m) away.

Principe Real, with the botanic garden, several gay bars and clubs, interior design shops, and more antique shops, is located 2,000 feet (600m) from the apartment.

To go to Alfama and the castle or the flea market on a Saturday or Tuesday morning, catch tram 28 (for 1 mile, 1.6 km) (the stop heading in that direction is located on the street behind the building).

At the nearby Santos station you can take the train to visit Estoril and Cascais or enjoy their beach (30 minute train ride).

The Marina Doca Alcantara is 1.7 miles (2.7 km) away, with a direct 2 minute train connection to Santos station (which is less than 10 minutes walking from the apartment).

Lisbon synagogue is 1 mile (1.6 km) away.

Cafés, pastry shops, small groceries, restaurants, and old-fashioned shops go without mentioning, as there are so many of them all around...
