You can see the sun rise in the morning and the glorious pink light in the evening when the sun sets. Juliette was the perfect host- lively, fun and knowledgeable and at the end of the phone or email if you needed her . There were tips and maps in the apartment, all the furniture, bedding and towels were of good quality and decorated to a high standard-everything you needed was there, including washing up liquid, hand soap, condiments, water, bin bags etc etc. it was exactly as pictured and described. So often one arrives and has to start shopping for the basics because there is nothing - not here !! The apartment is on the 3rd floor with no lift but is worth it for the views alone.- the bus stop to central Lisbon at Cais do Sodre is one street away, 2 supermarkets, cafes and restaurants, fruit shop , butchers ,bakers for the delicious Pastel da Nata ,hairdressers , taxi rank and the local market are all in the same street. Belem is only a 10 minute walk away downhill for the Jeronimos Monastery and the town and the Ajuda Palace and gardens is 10 minutes uphill. We spent a lovely 9 days here and could have spent 9 more easily. It was an absolute pleasure to stay here.

The apartment is basic but very clean and had everything we needed as a family of 4. The location is excellent, with close proximity to public transport links and supermarkets and great restaurants nearby. We would definitely stay here again.
