                                                        We spent 3 nights in Joao's apartment. It was clean and comfortable and in a fantastic location in an historic part of hilly Lisbon. We loved wandering the narrow cobble-stoned streets, trying out the local restaurants and just listening to the conversations of the local residents poking their heads out of their windows to chat.

                                                        Five stars doesn't begin to describe how pleased we were in staying at this wonderful place. If I could give twenty stars i would. Everything was perfect, as were the wonderful people we met on this trip. The property owners were so nice and helpful, their property so clean and well cared for, that i cannot imagine staying anywhere else should i return. I highly recommend anyone going to Lisbon to stay here. Absolutely beautiful.
