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.

Great Apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was ideally located, very comfortable, tastefully decorated, lots of space, spotless....and as it's described "charming and chic"! Had all cooking utensils available. Had some trouble with the washing machine not going to dry cycle, but used the method of the culture and hung our clothes to dry on the terrace! Miguel was soooo helpful and responsive to questions, for local recommendations , etc....even offering to take our clothes overnight to have them laundered! Beds were very comfortable. We would highly recommend this apartment for an enjoyable and comfortable stay!

Upscale and lovely.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister and I recently returned from a great week in Lisbon at this wonderful apartment. We arrived from Porto by train at Santa Appolonia station from which it was a 7 euro cab fare to the apartment for 3 persons with luggage. We were met by the owner, Miguel, a very nice person who speaks perfect English and who showed us around and gave us all pertinent information regarding the apartment and surrounding area. The home itself is fabulous! It is very spacious, immaculately clean, beautifully furnished and decorated. The bedrooms are large with comfortable beds and each very private. The two bathrooms are modern with nice showers. The kitchen is also modern and well equipped with all necessities to prepare full meals which you can either eat in the lovely dining room or the outdoor patio. The living room is spacious and comfortable with a television that has several English channels. There is a nice grocery store within a ten minute walk. It is in a great location in the old town from which you are able to walk to so many points of interest.

We travel quite a lot always renting apartments and consider this home to be one of the very best.

We loved Lisbon and hated to leave but when it came time Miguel arranged for a cab to pick us up at 3:30 A.M. to take us to the airport. 16.50 euros for three persons with luggage. What a bargain as well as a relief to have that taken care of for us.

Lisbon is a wonderful city with lots to see and do. If you have time take a day trip to the lovely hilltop town of Sintra by train. It is very easy and inexpensive, less than 5 euros round trip if you are over 65 (not much more otherwise).

Needless to say, we loved this apartment and highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates a lovely, quality home at a very reasonable price.

Thank you Miguel and Fátima.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was everything and more than we hoped. It is beautifully designed and well looked after with a huge terrace. My daughter and I loved the area, true Lisbon. A little cobbled street leading right to Caterina and minutes walking to nearly everything else. Bars, restaurants, bakeries, churches, museums, galleries - I could go on. Thank you Miguel, the perfect host. We will be back.

Very coveniently located

  • 5 of 5

Miguel and Fatima were very friendly and helpful.

The apartment is close to restaurants and bars, but the kitchen is well equipped. The wine available for purchase is a nice touch and means you don't have to worry about picking any up while out.

The apartment is cool on a warm day, comfortable and surprisingly quiet for a central area.

Strongly recommended.

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.
