About Nuno Catarino

I was born in this apartement and lived here 30 years with my family. I know very well the neighborhood and neighbors as well as the surrounding space. Now I want you to enjoy the same experience and get new wonderful memories in a traditional Lisbon neighborhood (Mouraria), birthplace of the fado.

Why Nuno Catarino chose Gra‡a

My renovated parents house needs life and new memories.

What makes this apartment unique

The only building with elevator in the area, and a great host ;-)

In the heart of Alfama, this is the perfect apartment to base yourself to see beautiful Lisbon.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Nuno and Rui for making our Lisbon stay so wonderful. From the moment we got to Lisbon we were treated like royalty with a name placard awaiting us at the train station, to an Uber already booked, followed by a separate welcoming party at the apartment. We were warmly received with lots of information and even some welcoming treats.

The apartment is a beautifully modernised large place with all the modern conveniences needed for a very comfortable stay in the heart of the Alfama district. It even includes a large balcony to watch sunsets and watch the world go by. This is the perfect place to see a world class city and its surrounds.

A perfect place to stay in Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying at this apartment. It is well equipped, in very good shape and clean and the location is perfect for exploring Lisbon by foot, tram, metro and buses. Also the Rossio train station is within walking distance so a day trip to Sintra (and some other places) is easily made.

Many other of the Lisbon attractions are within walking distance as well but this city has heaps of steep streets why walking can be a challenge and more so if the weather is hot. But this is the same for all locations and not specific for this apartment.

The owners arranged transportation to/from the airport and were very kind and helpful with any questions as well. Upon arrival there were a number of complimentary food items available which was very nice. Internet worked well and there was even a portable router/hotspot to take out.

The aircondition unit is located in the livingroom so cooling for the bedrooms could be improved. During our visit the nights and mornings were much cooler which helped but for us who are used to a much cooler climate the temperature was OK but not quite comfortable during a couple of warmer nights. A fan to bring in the colder air would have solved this but we did not think of asking if any was available.

If we ever return to Lisbon we would absolutely consider booking this apartment again.

Great flat in traditional Lisbon area within walking distance of bus, tram, metro and local eateries

  • 4 of 5

We were very grateful for the airport collection and return. We arrived before the flat was avilable but the owner's brother met us, took us around the area a little and treated us to coffee before returning us to the flat about an hour later- a lovely welcome.

Be prepared for lots of walking on steep roads, many cobbled, and use your maps, to avoid getting lost! It took us a while to get our bearings!

We were glad the flat was well located for walking to tourist sites or getting local transport. We were able to walk to many of them. Good to be away from international hotels and close to more traditional ways of life yet close enough to the heart of the city.

Everything you need is provided in the flat which was clean and had handy guide books. There is a small supermarket not far away and also tiny local stores selling basic foodstuff but it's better to go to the supermarket if you can as some of the fresh produce wasn't so fresh! Enjoy your holiday here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Maggie, but I don't understand the 4 stars classification... Tell me what's missing for a 5 stars review? I would love to know, to be able to satisfy my next guests. Let me clarify, you had a early (10am) arrive at Lisbon, my brother was there to pick you up, to give us time time to clean the apartment (the other guest's leave the apartment at 9am) he take you to see the neighborhood surroundings and drink a coffee, nearby 1pm the apartment was available for you, you don't need to wait for 3pm, wine, fresh bread, cheese and custards was on the table waiting for you. Everything at home was provide, towels, amenities, strong hair dryer, cloths, iron, I think nothing missing, for your convenience I provide you a router mobile and like these you be able to have access to the Internet outside and explore the city. Sorry, but I don't know what I need to do to give you a better and comfortable experience...

Was even more than perfect. The home is everything that is posted. Beds were so comfy.

  • 5 of 5

Nuno and his brother Rui have made our visit to Lisbon most enjoyable. Thank you RUI FOR ALL YOUR HELP with restuarant suggestions tours and also having wifi with us all the time was wonderful. I would go to bed and wake up and marvel at the view. Being so close to downtown was a plus the walk was worth it. Watching Tram 12 making its way

Up the street and the traffic jam of cars going down. Was such an experience. No honking patience of everyone guidance of people on the street to become the traffic cops so the tram could get up the hill. The Flat had ample supplies and if any thing was needed Rui was always in contact with us.

After 3 days I felt I had lived here forever. I only hope I may come back. I would strongly recommend this beautiful flat to all.

Mostly good but quite hot

  • 3 of 5

Great place but only air conditioning in the living room which was not convenient for sleeping at night as rooms were hot and quite noisy outside when you open windows. Also, even though it says free transfers to and from airport, that is not the case, they only paid for one. Owners were quite responsive before we booked and during the stay but had to be prompted numerous times in between the booking and the stay. Good location, about 10 min walk from martim moniz subway

Great place at the heart of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four and we loved this place. We used it for two weeks as our home in Lisbon. The owner is very welcoming and every thing you need to feel like a lisboan is there. The view from the balcony is just really nice and the stair way, next to the apartment building, brings you directly to Graca district after a climb of 227 steps. The view from up there on the old city is simply breathtaking.
