Lovely bright clean tastefully decorated apartment and very centrally situated to enjoy Lisbon's delights.

Owners exceptionally helpful and friendly.

We had a wonderful week here in January and had mild weather and lots of sunshine.

We will definitely come back to Lisbon and if possible stay again in this pretty apartment.

We had such a wonderful time staying at Elsa and Rui's house! They were so kind to pick us up from the airport early in the morning and the apartment is beautiful and right in the center of the city. Thank you so much for a perfect stay -- we are already daydreaming about coming back!

cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5

Light and cozy apartment with all necessary facilities and nice views across the rooftops and on Bica funicular. Surprisingly quiet at night considering all nightlife around. Actually, a great location with easy access to most of attractions - a good starting point for exploring the city on foot, but also close to buses and trams, and only a short walk from metro.

The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful - picked us up at the airport, gave some useful hints about transport and restaurants, and always were in touch when we needed help or had questions.

P.S. Pocket wi-fi turn out to be really useful!
