We got a great introduction from Jorge. So we went to the circus restaurant and our days started very great ! I would recoment this appartment to friends. It was very clean and enough space. We had a nice fado evening at Sr Fado, a family served very nice food in their restaurant and sang also the fado, the doughter Nadia and her mother. The father played the guiter. Very nice

Susana and Julien were very helpful and responsive throughout - nothing but positive experiences!
