About the property

Portugal, Lisbon & Costa de Lisboa, Lisbon Holiday apartments

BALCONY WITH RIVER VIEW; ELEVATOR; CREDIT CARD AND PAYPAL; BROADBAND WIRELESS NET, TV HD, DVD,CD; MORE THAN 300 TV CHANNELS (TV: FULL COVER OF ENGLISH, SPANISH, GERMAN AND SPANISH LEAGUES, FORMULA 1, PGA AND EUROPEAN TOUR GOLF TOURNAMENTS, TENNIS, ETC), OIL HEATERS; MASSAGE ON DEMAND, TOURS INSIDE OR OUTSIDE LISBON ON DEMAND (CASCAIS;SINTRA;EVORA); YAMAHA ACOUSTIC GRAND PIANO WITH SILENT SYSTEM; ELECTRIC GUITAR WITH AMP; BODYBOARD EQUIPMENT; PLAYSTATION 3 (FIFA 14; UNCHARTED 3; DIRT 3; ETC). Space, light, all in the heart of the Lisbon historical centre. Wander through the streets, take the the famous number 28 tram (stop at apartment door) to discover Alfama and the Castle, return back by the Tagus riverside and go out choosing dozens of restaurants and cafes with terrace in Chiado where traditional, modern and trendy shops mix up. You'll experiment living in a 19th century Lisbon style building with its high ceilings (4m), wooden floor, large windows that invite the golden Lisbon light. You will love to walk around, but all means of public transport are just around the corner, 5 minutes away: Take the boat to cross the River or the train to Estoril/Cascais (30m).

clean, contemporary, art and music

  • 5 of 5

I loved this apartment, clean, contemporary, art and music are a strong feature, a really cool pad, with loads of space, great wifi and TV, excellent bathroom and large kitchen, with good quality beds. The hosting was exceptional, gold stars all round, really helpful, giving lots of advice and answers to questions via email. You will be 30 minutes walk and train ride from glorious clean beaches and only 20 minutes pleasant stroll from the centre. Good shops close to the apartment and good bus links. Tram 28 runs past the apartment and the bedrooms over look the main street, so you will be aware of this authentic sound of Lisbon which was a back ground noise I became used to and enjoyed. This is a great place to stay all round

What a great apartment, stylish and in a great location with friendly and informative owners, thanks Miguel and Joana. The instruments are a great touch. We stayed as a family of 4 with 2 teenagers, there was lots of entertainment in the apartment for the teenagers. It's a 10 minute walk to get to the west side of the old city but The number 28 tram goes right past the entrance if you want to take it. Lots of good local restaurants that are really good value and very welcoming. A great place to stay and a wonderful city.

Great apartment in a terrific location

  • 5 of 5

Loved this apartment. Very spacious with a great balcony. Had everything we needed. It was in a superb location. We walked everywhere and it was very central. The tram stop was outside the apartment if needed. Joana was a delight to deal with and very friendly and an ideal host. My husband loved the musical instruments especially the piano. We went as a couple but this flat would be totally ideal for a family. It felt really welcoming. We had an early flight when we left and Joana organised a taxi for us which was very helpful. Would definitely recommend this charming and delightful accommodation.

Elegance, Comfort, A Real Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth year spending several months in Lisbon in this fantastic apartment. It is very large and beautifully decorated, with lots of art on the walls. The living room is full of instruments, including a grand piano, and the kitchen is very well equipped. The location is perfect, within walking distance of so many sites, yet a bit outside the hustle and bustle. Supermarkets and restaurants are nearby. I feel safe in this neighborhood. Our hosts, Joana and Miguel, are very welcoming and go out of their way to make sure our needs are accommodated. This is truly a wonderful home away from home for us.
