Superior property in the Bairro Alto section of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

You won't be disappointed with this property. It is in tip top condition and has practically every creature comfort imaginable. As I mentioned to Miguel on checkout, the apartment is decorated as if the owners lived in the apartment themselves. The location is quiet and within 5 minutes walk (slightly hilly) you are in a busy street with shops, restaurants and attractions. Miguel and Fatima were both excellent communicators and very helpful arranging taxis to pick us up at the airport and to take us to the airport at the ridiculous time of 320 AM. Yes, Lisbon is hilly, but it's also charming and very appealing. I recommend staying here if you are a fan of staying in lovely places and getting a sense of a real neighborhood.

Everything the previous reviews have said are true. The location is great. The apartment was home from home, clean and relaxing. Thanks to Fatima and Miguel, we’ve had a great time.

Perfect location for our two week holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean, modern ground floor apartment in the Barrio Alto/Santa Catarina area of Lisbon. The location is outstanding and it was perfect for our family of 3. We walked everywhere, used pubic transportation, and sampled many of the nearby restaurants.

Fatima and Miguel were extremely attentive to any request or question that we had. They even made reservations for us for Christmas dinner at a lovely nearby restaurant before we even arrived. Thank you!

They also reserved a car for us so we could make our 5:00am flight, ugh. We have rented apartments for vacations for 15 years now. What was really nice is that this apartment has a full length mirror..two actually. I know it seems minor, but no previous rentals we’ve had thought to put one in. Made us happy. We didn’t really cook, since I refuse to while on vacation. The kitchen had all modern appliances and a good size refrigerator/freezer.

We will definitely stay there again while visiting Lisbon.

Obrigado, Fatima and Miguel

One of Lisbon’s gems!

  • 5 of 5

We felt fortunate to find this lovely, comfortable apartment in such a great old Lisbon neighborhood. The owners, Fatima and Miguel, were very helpful and even arranged taxis which greatly relieved the stress of getting to and from the airport. Everything you could possibly need is provided and it is conveniently located only minutes away from the famous #28 tram, neighborhood grocers, a bakery, restaurants and little shops. In just four days, we felt like regulars! Lisbon is a beautiful city made even more so by the festive holiday lights and festivities. The comfortable December weather made it a good time to visit, We enthusiastically recommend this great accommodation with our only regret being that we were unable to stay longer. Thank you Fatima and Miguel!

spacious, comfortable, well equipped interesting area of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment. My daughter and I were rattling in it. A family of 5 or even 6 would be very comfortable. Beautifully furnished and well equipped. The wine wall was a bonus and it was great to breakfast on the terrace,even in November. Fatima and Miguel were very helpful from first booking. They arranged taxis to and from airport (excellent value!), Miguel met us on arrival, explained the house technology and gave useful tips on local shopping, restaurants and travel. They followed up a couple of times to check all was well, even offering extra duvets when they thought it got cold (coming from Nottingham, it still felt warm to us.).

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment.

Two words of warning. The local area is steep, with cobbles that can be slippery, so go well shod. Also the lisboa card is not as good value as it can seem from afar. Better to use the local viva viagem card for travel

Just terrific!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfect -- clean, quiet, great location, well equipped. Miguel and Fatima are super hosts and anxious to please. We loved the fact that we could drink their wine (for a small charge) if we did not get out to buy any. We were near public transportation (which is great in Lisbon), and several markets.

We loved this apartment and so will you!
