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!

It's a perfect home base for seeing all the sites in and around Lisbon. Minutes walk to shops, and more restaurants than you can imagine. We walked everywhere including to the train for a day trip to the coastal towns, and the "other train station" for a 40 mins trip to Sintra, a spot not to be missed! The owners are gracious, thinking about all the extras one might need, including free international calls during the evening and early AM hours. They helped us with finding the garage parking and transporting our luggage to and from the apartment. We wish we were still in Lisbon, staying at this terrific apartment, and enjoying this lively and fun city. We will be back and certainly hope we can once again stay here.
