Close to all amenities including local restaurants serving food as diverse as Nepalese, steakhouse, Indian and traditional Lisboa at very reasonable prices. The area is served by local markets and you can buy anything from a couple of oranges to a full weeks shopping at the local Lidl. The big bonus is that the location is on the famed Tram 28 route .. no need to Q at the terminus. The owner met us on the day and explained the facilities. Cable TV is supplied with a large variety of multi lingual channels ... the wi fi is excellent and we did not lose signal at any time. We would freely recommend to anyone
