About the property

Fully equipped 2 bedroom with 2 bathroom and a large terrace in St. Catherine

This charming and exclusive fully equipped two bedroom apartment each one with its private bathroom has also a separate dining and living rooms. In addition, it offers you a fantastic 25 sqm terrace for outdoor meals allowing you to get some sun or enjoy a refreshing shower on the warmer days.

We offer you a luxury service giving you the feeling of living in the heart of the historic Lisbon in a quiet and genuine neighborhood enjoying Portuguese hospitality and the authentic city life (Bairro Alto and Chiado).

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).

In the apartment, you will also find city maps and additional tips regarding the monuments, museums, restaurants, night life, Fado houses, beaches and what’s going on in Lisbon.

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this apartment and found it suited us very well. The owner met us on arrival and showed us all the features of the apartment as well as pointing out points of interest on a local map, all of which was very helpful. The owners also arranged for a taxi for us to and from the airport which was very helpful for us. We enjoyed staying in one of the old parts of the city and found the city an easy place to find our way around. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a lovely place to stay in Lisbon.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, charming and spacious apartment in good location. Fatima arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport and was very responsive to our questions prior to arrival. The heat was somewhat irregular as rooms with units were fine (living room and bedrooms) but other areas slightly cooler in the month of December.

Loved Lisbon!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I loved how central and well equipped this beautiful and spacious apartment was. Miguel and Fatima were full of helpful information regarding shopping nearby and wonderful restaurants within walking distance! They also assisted with arrangements for our pick up by cab from the airport. We had a fabulous time exploring the historic sites. Lisbon is an amazing city and we hope to return one day! Obrigado!

Christmas Break 8-11th Dec.

  • 5 of 5

What a great find! Four of us spent three nights in this lovely spacious appartment for our annual Christmas break. We were met at the apartment by Fatima and Miguel who were lovely. They gave us lots of tips about Lisbon, restaurants, sight seeing etc. They organised airport taxis for us too.

The appartment was beautiful, tastefully furnished, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The beds and pillows were so comfortable. The variety of wines on display in the kitchen could be purchased at a very reasonable price. The website photos are a true likeness.

The appartment was well positioned, close to restaurants, shops and places of interest,trams etc. At the top of the road opposite there is a great viewing area overlooking the river where we sat in the sun having coffee. The Christmas trees and lights in the squares and centre streets were so lovely as were the Christmas markets. We weren't sure what to expect here at Christmas but we're very pleased. Although hilly, Lisbon is a great place to visit.

I would highly recommend the appartment for anyone planning to visit Lisbon.

Enjoy.

  • 5 of 5

If you are searching this property you will be pleased by the reviews to date. Without repeating what others have already stated there is little I can add, the description and superlatives used are accurate and well founded. Our hosts were extremely helpful and kind in making the holiday a truly relaxing experience. The holiday rates number 2 on our list of worldwide hols only beaten by our wedding holiday to Barbados. You will love this place and the people. Enjoy!
