It was perfect for our needs - large for 2 people with what we needed to be a base to explore the capital. It's well located for public transport and the major sites we wanted to see. We could walk into town to explore but there were plenty of buses and trams to get back at the end of the day. The flat was clean and well supplied (we needed to iron shirts for a wedding for example). It was quiet but had good amenities nearby such as a 2 mini markets and a nice cafe over the road. Maria in the ground floor flat couldn't have been more helpful - she was brilliant with our questions about the city and the minor queries we had about the flat. Very good value for money for a couple and we would also use it for visiting with a friend. Had we stayed for longer we would have felt comfortable having people over to the apartment for dinner or drinks - it felt homely rather than just somewhere you slept.

On arrival Margarita showed us round and made it easy to settle in. The living/dining room was huge and well decorated and the kitchen meant we could enjoy a few meals in. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also a good size but the main highlight was over Lisbon and the 25 de Abril bridge from the bedrooms/balcony which was stunning. We would love to go back and would recommend the place to anyone looking to visit Lisbon.

She had thought of everything! The house itself is beautiful and has everything you could ever need. It's absolutely perfect.
