About the property

Ideal For A Family Who Wants To Discover Lisbon. Located 200m to Subway and Tram

To see my kind of service, I have reviews from my other apartment listed here (427830)

This is a very nice and elegant apartment, from the 70's, entirely renovated in 2014, 3rd floor with lift, in a historical neighborhood. Well furnished, a balcony with a great view to old Lisbon. Everything you need for a holiday in Portugal's capital.

Located half way between 2 hills, this house offers a wonderful view of Lisbon and extraordinary sunsets. Filled with light, it's the ideal place to enjoy a comfortable evening. Planted between Graça and Mouraria and with transports just 2 minutes away, it's the ideal spot to visit our city.

From here you can walk practically everywhere or easily access transports to visit our city, be it to visit Sintra, enjoy a sightseeing spot 200 meters away or even enjoy a wonderful meal in one of the typical restaurants.

If you decide to stay in and enjoy the sunset, you can browse the web, read a book at the veranda, see a TV series or just listen to some music.

With the famous tramway 28 (stop 300 meters from the apartment) you can reach the Castle, Alfama,Sé, Miradouro St. Luzia, or the tramway 12 that goes also to the Castle 50 meters from the apartment.

By subway you can reach the trains to: Sintra, Cascais, Expo, Porto, Fátima and much more.

Walking distance to Rossio, Restauradores, Chiado.

The apartment has:

- a big living/dinning room

- free mobile wi-fi

- LCD flat screen, A/C, Cable TV

- Free internet, music player/CD player.

- 2 Bedroom, Kitchen/Living room and WC.

About Nuno Catarino

I was born in this apartement and lived here 30 years with my family. I know very well the neighborhood and neighbors as well as the surrounding space. Now I want you to enjoy the same experience and get new wonderful memories in a traditional Lisbon neighborhood (Mouraria), birthplace of the fado.

Why Nuno Catarino chose Lisbon City

My renovated parents house needs life and new memories.

What makes this apartment unique

The only building with elevator in the area, and a great host ;-)

Great communication with owners, the apartment is really clean and well maintained with everything you need for your stay. Great views and location - Mouraria is a really interesting area. It's a short and easy downhill walk to the metro.

A fabulous stay, extremely gracious host!

  • 5 of 5

We actually stayed here June 2015, but I am just now submitting my review. Nuno helped us on our first trip to Europe and made it VERY memorable! We traveled with our then 14, 9 and 2 year old. Immediately upon arrival he helped us get situated and took us to his favorite restaurant just a few steps away from the apartment. I never had such great food! He spent time with us allowing us to feel so welcomed, we cant thank you enough! The apartment was perfectly situated for great walking and adventures to great restaurants, festivals, local flea markets. It had everything. Nuno and this apartment and Lisbon was definitely a highlight of our 6 week trip. You cant go wrong trusting in Nuno to help you have a fabulous vacation. Thank you!

Well eqipped apartment in central location. Owners very friendly & helpful.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very comfortable, clean & tidy. Very well equipped with lots of little extras. There was a welcome pack with a few essential provisions which was a nice touch & even included a bottle of wine. Airport transfers - another extra which was appreciated. The owners were very hospitable & provided lots of advise /recommendations to make the most of our stay in Lisbon. Centrally located & within walking distance to many of the tourist sites. Lisbon itself is hilly but has accessible transport links. we would definitely recommend this apartment.

Loved Lisbon lots to see & do & everyone was really friendly.

Lovely, great location and a nice apartment - good size and there were five of us.

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend Nuno's place if you want to experience the real Lisbon. The apartment is situated in Mouraria which is a 'stone's throw' away from the famous castle in the old town. Lots of local people and character, nothing touristy about this area which is exactly what we were looking for. Despite this it's very central and we walked everywhere - Lidl, the centre, to the underground etc. Nuno had organised our pick-up from the airport which went without a hitch and had kindly got some supplies in for us as it was 10pm when we arrived. The apartment was spotlessly clean and as I said, a good size. Honestly couldn't recommend this highly enough. We had a terrific week.

Good location for most things

  • 5 of 5

It is a lovely apartment with everything you need with the added advantage of a lift as it is on the 3rd floor. We were there for 4 nights and managed to do most things including getting the train to Sintra which we highly recommend and you really need a whole day there as we only went for half a day but did not have time to visit everything. Nuno's brother met us at the apartment and was very nice as well as helpful. You are walking distance of the castle, the main squares and the river but you do need trainers or similar as cobbled streets and uneven paths. We really enjoyed our stay in Lisbon so many thanks.

Best welcome EVER to any holiday home rented :)

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful week in Lisbon and loved the apartment we stayed in too. We have stayed in many a place but i have to say this was the best welcome we have received ever!!! We were met at the Airport for our transfer arranged by Nuno and then met at the apartment by his brother Rui, who ran us through all the details and gave us tips on places to go, shops to buy food nearby and their favourite local restaurant. It felt like we were met by very old friends and family. The apartment was lovely and very spacious, with french doors from each room opens onto the balcony for us to be able to enjoy the cool breeze and breath taking views over Lisbon. There was everything we needed including Wifi which meant we were able to contact Rui or Nuno at any point who always responded immediately. We were a family of four and our children aged 15 and 13 loved the apartment. Our daughter slept on the Sofa bed which was perfect for her. We walked everywhere as it is so centrally located and a 5 minute walk takes you to the number 28 Tram which circles the city or a 2 minute walk to the number 12 tram, which takes to the Castle, though its only a 10 minute walk by foot. Lisbon is a truly beautiful city and we can't wait to go back and discover more of the city and enjoy our lovely time in the apartment, which really did feel like home.

Thank you from the Lofts
