About Marta M. Gomes

I was born in 1970 and I am a designer.

I live in Campo de Ourique. I did the apartments’ full renovation. I love historic buildings.

I have lived all my life in the neighborhood, just 5 years ago I moved to Campo de Ourique

I love meeting people from abroad and I deal with my guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and all the help that guests might need.

I try to help, in order to make you feel truly at home.

Why Marta M. Gomes chose Lisbon City

Because I know very well the neighborhood, and I fell in love with the house and the wonderful view of the river and city.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment has a great view over the city and the river. It's full of sunlight all year round.

The building is original from the XVIIIth century, right after the great earthquake of Lisbon which took place in 1755. It was built in a typical 'Pombalino' style, a type of construction and architecture that are protected by law and candidate to UNESCO's World Heritage Patrimony classification. The building is mainly assembled with wooden beams, in a “cage” like structure inspired in naval construction from the period. A type of construction quite advanced for its time and considered to be the first anti-earthquake type of construction in the world. It is flexible, but it doesn’t break.

The renovation of the building and the apartment took in consideration this historical heritage. However, you will find a modern apartment .

The apartment door is 15mts away from the 28 Route Tram stop / 10 min from the Estrela garden, the place to rest at the end of the day while lying on the grass and sunbathing with your children enjoying the playground / 2 min from the Basilica / 5 min from the Parliament / 5 min from The Amalia Museum (Fado) / 10 min from the green area of Tapada das Necessidades and also from one of the most emblematic and charming neighborhoods of Lisbon - Campo de Ourique, where you will find several other points of interest among the house of Fernando Pessoa (Portuguese writer), Prazeres Cemetery and Campo de Ourique Market.

Cosy,comfortable and great view.

  • 4 of 5

This top floor apartment has plenty of charm.The lengthy climb up to a somewhat curious small front door leaves one expecting a warm welcome from a Hobbit.Upon entry however the warm wooden floors and welcoming yellow walls instantly make you feel at ease .This is an old property but in age only.

Tastefully decorated with prints ,lamps and nic naks,you can kick off your shoes from your strolling around Lisbon and sit on a sofa with a view to dream along too.

Our five night stay in February started with two and a half days solid rain but with warm radiators,wi-fi and television and an ever changing weather system from the patio windows our family felt completely at home.When the sun did appear the images from sitting on the terrace spun on forever.The Tagus river,ship movements,trams peeping in and out of view,forever something to gaze upon.

The apartment has a small kitchen but well stocked. Turn around from the toast popping in the morning to look at the view from the kitchen patio doors and you realise that all you need is here and all there is to view and experience just a few steps from the front door.

Unbelievable View - Perfect Place to stay - Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

Marta (the owner) has really created something very special. It was our first trip to Portugal and what a fantastic way to start the trip. We spent every sunset on the balcony overlooking the river and the lights of the city. It was special. The location really could not have been better and the neighborhood is really nice. The inside of the apartment had everything and more that you would need. And Marta is a wonderful host. She made a special effort to give us a lot of very helpful information about the area and Lisbon in general. If we could give our review more than 5 stars, we would. Thank you so much Marta for making our stay in Lisbon so fantastic. We love your apartment and would love to stay there again in the very near future.

Traumhafter Blick!

  • 4 of 5

Der Blick vom Balkon auf den Tejo und die Brücke ist sehr schön. Die Wohnung ist schön eingerichtet - man muss aber ab und zu den Kopf einziehen, da die Höhe der Eingagnstür im 4. Stock ohne Fahrstuhl und die Türen zum Balkon sehr niedrig sind. Der Blick macht das aber alles wett. Die Vermieterin Marta ist sehr nett und gibt gute Tipps für Lisabon. Als Mietwagen sollte ein kleines Modell gewählt werden - das macht die Parkplatzsuche leichter. Wir kommen sicher wieder.

Great area to visit the city rested and / or for fun at night! Close to small restaurants and an excellent cuisine Portuguese fado house.

The neighbourhood of Estrela embodies the true spirit of Lisbon, where ancient traditions live together with ways of life young and modern.
