Overview

About the property

Behind the waterfront district of Santos, are the narrow streets of the tiny and picturesque Madragoa, which, together with Alfama, was home to Lisbon's fishwives and fishing community. Right in the middle of this quaint neighborhood is where we are - in the very old Travessa das Inglesinhas. Today Madragoa it's known for its traditional taverns, "petiscos" (tapas) restaurants, for its many tiled façades and all the charme of a traditional Lisbon “bairro”.

Santos, its more mundane neighbor, is known for its design shops, design and architecture schools, and for bars and clubs that attract college students and teenagers. The area is famous for its nightlife and bohemian atmosphere but it's also a neighborhood of grand mansions, just like the residential Lapa district up the hill. It was here that many aristocrats and noble families lived in the 18th century.

The apartment retain all the charm of a pre-earthquake Lisbon typical building. This fully-furnished tourist apartment is very tastefully decorated, with simplicity and practicality in mind. Located in a quiet and familiar environment, 2 minutes walk from Santos square, the riverfront, Sao Bento Palace (portuguese parliament), 5 minutes walk from the Estrela Basilica and 15 minutes walk from Bairro Alto and Chiado. A perfect area for your holidays ins Lisbon

The are is also very well served by several public transports and, therefor, you can go anywhere in Lisbon with ease - tram, bus and train from Cascais line. If you want to use your own car, parking is not subject to parking meter in the surrounding streets and there is a large underground parking lot in Santos, just 150 meters away.

About André Ancião

I'm passionate about Portugal, the portuguese culture and history. There's nothing that I like better that to show, and help, visitors to know Portugal, Lisbon, our culture and the portuguese way of seeing life.

André Ancião purchased this apartment in 2015

What makes this apartment unique

You can reach almost anywhere in Lisbon with ease due to the many forms of public transport available in the area. We are midway between two main attraction points in Lisbon: Alfama and Belém. At night it's a quiet neighborhood and perfect to rest after a long day walking around the city.

beautiful little flat in a perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

This little flat was perfect for our week long stay in Lisbon. Besides being very beautifully decorated - original tiles, tasteful decorations, IKEA minimalism - the flat is wonderfully well equipped. (hairdryer, micro wave + proper cooker, iron, shampoo, soap, even tea, coffee and biscuits).

The location is perfect. Right in the heart of old Lisbon - local shops, cafes and a great supermarket all on your doorstep (although some steepish climbs involved). And on top of all this the owner Andre' clearly cares about his guests. Not only a warm welcome, a lovely clean, well equipped flat but lots of information and advice and you felt that, were you to have a problem, he would be happy to hep you. And the bottle of wine in the fridge was a wonderful (and up until now) unheard of gesture from an owner!

I'd recommend this place to any couple who want a relaxing stay in an old part of Lisbon. It's walkable to the central city but the number 25 tram is only 5 minutes walk away in one direction ...number 28 in another. perfect!

André and Paula were excellent hosts!

  • 5 of 5

André and Paula were excellent hosts. The flat is beautiful, well equipped and super cosy. We loved being a part of Lisbon where you could experience living as a local. We went to the Mercado da Ribeira and nearby Pingo Doce to cook an excellent meal, all thanks to the flat's close proximity to the market and kitchen which had everything we needed! We got tricked by the taxi driver but luckily prior to our arrival André already mentioned there's a possibility they would overcharge tourists so we knew what the maximum price would be. André came to the rescue as we were negotiating with the driver, so thank you for saving us! Overall a really great experience and we were sad to leave but hope to come back again soon to this beautiful flat!
