The apartment is situated in the historical neighborhood of Santa Catarina bearing a unique charm famous for its Palaces, Churches and its scenic belvedere also know by “Adamastor” the Sea Monster.
Situated in a quiet street, however within a walking distance from theaters, museums restaurants, coffees and its famous esplanades, viewpoints, shopping and commercial centers, services and many other attractions, the apartment is very near from the trendy Bairro Alto and the chic Chiado, which for many are considered the most emblematic and central locations in Lisbon.
Within 5 minutes walking, you will be in the heart of the night life neighborhood – Bairro Alto – where you can find both traditional and more sophisticated restaurants, outdoor cafes, bars, second hand clothing, record shops, book stores and art galleries (further details on its more than 250+ commerce shops, restaurants, bars, discotheques, art galleries and museums could be seen at www.ilovebairroalto.com). A bit further you are at the center of the chic Chiado (wealthiest area in Lisbon).
Close to all types of transportation, from the apartment you can easily reach the famous tram 28 that would take you to all the important sites such as Basílica da Estrela, Palácio de São Bento (parliament), Praça do Comércio (largest square in Europe) and up to the Castelo de São Jorge (St. George’s Castle) or just connect you with the underground station at Baixa Chiado. Glória, Bica and Santa Justa Elevators are also on a walking distance, so you don´t need a car to make your way in Lisbon.
Rossio station is also within a close distance, where you can catch the train until last stop at Sintra classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sintra).
Situated just a few blocks away from the apartment towards the river, you will find Cais do Sodré station, from where you can take the ferry to cross the Tagus river to Cacilhas for the shrine of Christ King or the trains to Estoril famous for its casino, the Palace Hotel where James Bond Movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1969 was taped with its finest beaches or until the last stop to Cascais which was former fishing village that gained fame as a resort for Portugal's royal family in the late 19th century and early 20th century and that during the World War II has became home to many of the exiled wealthy families of Europe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cascais).

Excellent Apartment with helpful hosts
Good helpful hosts, with good communication and advice. The apartments was as lovely as the pictures. Enjoyable trip, would stay here again.
Darn near "Perfect"
My husband and I had a wonderful time at Fatima and Miguel's retreat. The bed was comfortable and the entire unit was very clean. There was a wall of wine for us to choose from, provided by our hosts at a very reasonable 7 Euro per bottle. While we did not take advantage of them, it was nice to know that if we wanted wine and didn't want to go out to get it, it was right there.
We originally had booked for four of us, but the other couple's plans changed. As a result there was plenty of room for the two of us. There would have been sufficient room for the four of us as well.
The backyard patio was very nice, unfortunately the weather and our schedule didn't allow us to make the best use of it.
The area is wonderful, full of charm and the unit was in a good location. Close to all we wanted.
Miguel offered us suggestions of where to eat and where to go. All appreciated.
We will certainly consider staying here again should we return to Lisbon.
Thank you Fatima and Miguel for helping make our travels memorable.
Clean, comfortable, great location.
Miguel was there to greet us . He responded to our emails immediately and made sure our stay was comfortable. The apartment was fully equipped and more.
He treated us to an Easter cake tradition which was delicious.
We would highly recommend and hope to return soon.
Thanks Miguel and Fatima.
This was an awesome apartment for our 7 day stay in Lisbon. Located in the old town near excellent restaurants, markets and the train station to Sintra (a must for visitors). We were just two but a larger group could easily stay (2 bedrooms and 2 baths). Fatima and Miguel were great hosts.

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.
Superior property in the Bairro Alto section of Lisbon
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.
