About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Come and stay in our spacious apartment in the historic centre of Lisbon which is packed with old charm and has a truly traditional feel.

The space: The 150 sq metre apartment is on the first floor in a traditional, elegantly appointed building (circa 1880), with lift and 3 balconies at the front.

Recently renovated to modern high standards, it has all the comforts to make you feel cosy. It is also packed full of original features - stucco ceilings, original windows, shutters and old Portuguese tiles.

The accommodation: There are 2 double bedrooms, both with double beds. The third bedroom has 1 single bed with an additional pull out single bed ( which is small and would only suit a child or small adult). We have a travel cot for babies. The apartment can sleep a maximum of 6 people (plus potentially 1 baby). There are 2 recently installed bathrooms, living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen, and cool shady courtyard. Furnished in traditional style with antique furniture, Persian carpets, and Portuguese hydraulic mosaic tiles, but with modern touches.

Bedrooms are fully equipped with hotel quality sheets and storage heaters. Ther is gas central heating throughout the property. Fresh towels provided.

Kitchen has gas cooker, electric oven, microwave, nespresso coffee machine, washing machine and dryer. Bathroom 1 has power shower, toilet and sink, bathroom 2 has bath with power shower, sink, bidet and toilet.

The living/dining room has comfy sofas, leather armchair, and dining table seating 6 people. There is satellite TV (with international channels), DVD player and music centre to play your music. The house has broadband wifi.

The place has an incredible feeling of space with 3.5 metre ceilings, but the décor is comfortable and cosy.

Guest access: You rent the entire apartment. Please note: Parking is not easy. There is also a pay car park 1 minutes walk away.

Check in/contact: We live in London so we have someone local (English speaking) to meet you to check in and out, and be on hand locally if there are any problems during your stay.

The neighbourhood: Located in the central area of Santos, known as the design district, it is a fun trendy district surrounded by shops, great restaurants, and museums. Great for wandering around and exploring. The Museum of Art and Antiquities is 4 minutes walk further along our street. We are also a few minutes walk from Cais de Sodre which has many fun bars and clubs. It is also within easy walk of central Lisbon and Belem for tourist attractions, and only 3 minutes walk from the riverfront where you can take a 20 minute train to beaches in Cascais. The street itself is peaceful, safe and quiet. Your neighbours are well heeled Portuguese, many of whom have lived there for decades.

Getting around: Tram number 25 runs at the bottom of our street. It is 10 minutes walk to central Lisbon ( Rossio). The nearest metro station is Cais do Sodre (5 minutes walk), and the nearest rail station is Santos with trains to the beach in Cascais. Taxi rank at the bottom of the street.

This would be the perfect place for groups of friends, couples or small families.

Come and stay in our lovely traditional Lisbon apartment!

PLEASE NOTE: Check in is between 3-10 pm, if you would like to check in after 10pm there is an additional charge of 25 euros payable on arrival.

About Katy Keenan

We are a Brazilian- English couple who live and work in London. We love renovating properties and this was our project a few years ago. Now we use it as a second home, but offer it for holiday rentals when we are not using it.

Why Katy Keenan chose Bairro Alto

This is a very traditional authentic property in a very well established and historically wealthy area of Lisbon. The streets are full of history. The neighborhood was built to house wealthy sea merchants, and our street was originally facing the Tagus. Since then land was reclaimed and we are now a few minutes walk from the water.

Primarily this is our home- rather than a tourist rental. We tried to make it elegant and cosy, really showing off the space. We hope that guests will appreciate the experience of living among local well-heeled Lisbonites in a beautiful and historic area.

Perfect spot to stay in Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful flat, perfectly situated. We stayed here for 5 days, my husband and myself and our 2 adult children. The flat was spotless and easy to access. The two women who maintain the flat were there when we arrived and gave us great tips on where to go in Lisbon and provided us with a map. I can't recommend this flat highly enough. If we are fortunate enough to return to Lisbon we will definitely stay here again. Thanks for making our introduction to Portugal so terrific.

Great location but technically not in Bairro Alto but walkable. Nice apartment. 3 bedrooms was perfect for our family vacation. Food markets and great local restaurants really close. Portugal has the nicest people.

Lovely, Centrally Located apartment in Lisbon

  • 4 of 5

We stayed three nights in this apartment. The apartment is very spacious and centrally located for a visit to Lisbon. The surrounding area has plenty of good restaurants and is near transportation for visiting other areas of the city.

This apartment could best be described as shabby chic. The dining room chairs are in need of replacement or repair as their cracked tops are uncomfortable to sit on. We found the carpets in the very long hallways in need of underpads as they are extremely slippery. It would have been nice to have four matching wine glasses. The second bedroom’s bed is really too small for two people and the single trundle bed is very hard. Otherwise, all was as expected.

We were met by a Iola, a lovely woman who provided us with a wealth of information on Lisbon. The owners, Katy and Richardo were very easy to work with and answered any queries immediately and fully.

Lisbon getaway - trip to Fatima

  • 5 of 5

Arrived late due to airport problems but was met by helpful courteous assistant. Beautiful apartment close to local amenities

Carpets on floor a bit slippy for elderly but lift to 1st floor a real bonus for grandma!

Would definitely stay again.
