Great stay in apartment full of character in excellent location

5 of 5
The property was located in a quiet side street very near to Bairro Alto and very convenient for all our needs as a family of 4. The owners were extremely helpful before and during our stay and arranged for a taxi driver to meet us from Lisbon Airport where we were dropping off our hire car. Soon after we arrived , Miguel came over to meet us and answer any questions we had and to ensure we knew where and what all the facilities were. He also filled us in on some nearby restaurants and places of interest and how best to travel around. The rooms were very well furnished and stylish and the whole apartment was surprisingly spacious and deceptive from the front door as there was plenty of room with an added extension at the back. We spent most of our days out and about once we had breakfast but enjoyed coming back to our own place in the middle of this wonderful city. This was our first time in Lisbon having spent a couple of times before in the Algarve which we also loved and hope to come back to both again very soon. If we do I would probably start in Lisbon next time and then move to the Algarve to rest the body from all those trips up and down the hills of Lisbon! But all worth it in the end. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days and nights in Lisbon and can recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay with character and convenience. Many thanks and regards to Miguel and Fatima. Victor and family . Dublin

Great apartment in the middle of Bairro Alto

5 of 5
Property was very well kept and in great condition. Apartment was large enough for 6 people to stay very comfortably. Bakeries, supermarket and other amenities were within a 2-4 minutes walking distance. I would highly recommend this property to anyone interested in exploring Lisbon and being within a 15 minute walking from most major attractions. Thanks Henrique!
