Overview

About the property

Spacious cozy apartment with 3 bedrooms (sleeps 6) and 2 bathrooms.

Located in the historical and charming borough of Santos, between Lapa and Madragoa, this fully equipped 3-bedroom apartment (Which accommodates up to 6) has the perfect features for a dream holiday in Europe's current trendiest city.

In the morning it looks like you wake up between the beginning of the last century, Eca de Queiroz inside an 'novel, and you are about to meet one of his characters. Then, late night this neighborhood gets Transformed into of one of the best areas of night life full of young people. Between lunch and dinner time, its an exciting discovery of culture, food and history, 5 minutes away from Portugal's most important museum (National Museum of Ancient Art), churches, palaces, wondering through the narrow streets, there are incredible little restaurants and shops to discover. (In international retail chains here!)

The 4-window L-shaped living room has a beautiful space and luminosity, a quite corner to read and relax and a spacious dining area. You might love the unique library in the other side and explore the random book off the shelf you never Discovered before! With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms marbled (one en suite) and a fully equipped kitchen make up the rest of the lovely ground-floor apartment facing an eighteenth century church and a hundred steps away from the train que runs along the beautiful, sunny English Riviera (ca 25 km up to Cascais). Well served by public transports, access to Lisbon's downtown Both and to the touristic Belem area (not to miss the Coaches Museum) is very straightforward. The bakery, the wine shop, the shoemaker and the local groceries are few minutes away, as well as some of the best shops design. And on top of it all, enjoy the only short-let tailormade in the whole of Portugal!

Do you like Fado? We can suggest some of the best traditional gigs right around the corner. Would you like to try English food? We can help you find the best restaurants - traditional or elegant, it is your call - or if you really want something special, we can even cook you a meal English at home!

Do you like playing cards? We can find you good partners for that. Do you like to lie or to walk on the beach? Well, there are plenty of Them no further than 30 km away. Do you like wine? Wine tastings and visits to wineries Internationally famous can be arranged for you.

Basically, a holiday in Lisbon is the best way to enjoy European sophistication and the provincial flavor of old times Portugal

Cosy, comfy , friendly but loud all night long on Friday and Saturday.

  • 4 of 5

I would without a doubt stay here any day of the week but Friday and Saturday due to the weekend partying. Maria was very welcoming and informative. The apartment was cosy, clean and near sights, transportation and restaurants.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We (a group of 5 adults) stayed at The House of Books for a week over the year's end and loved everything about it. The apartment is extremely comfortable, beautifully maintained and very well equipped in every way (kitchen, linens, entertainments...). The location is great. There are a number of key bus and tram lines very close by, as well as a good variety of small shops and a couple of good museums; it is a 10 – 15 minute walk to the wonderful Mercado Ribeira, and there are several other very good restaurants and bars closer still. Baixa (downtown) is less than 15 minutes by bus, or a pleasant half hour walk through interesting neighbourhoods. Add to this a manager and owner who are extremely pleasant, helpful and responsive, and you have an ideal home base for a Lisbon visit.

Loved the rooms are flat super clean. Loved the host who was so charming and flexible. We all had a wonderful time. Will definitely come back and recommend to friends. Thank you for all the hints.

capodanno a lisbona

  • 5 of 5

Casa molto confortevole e ben organizzata. la padrona di casa è molto disponibile. Eravamo 3 coppie per il capodanno e ci siamo trovati molto bene. A parte la difficoltà iniziale per orientarci e arrivare all'appartamento, poi non ci sono stati piu' problemi, infatti ci sono parecchi autobus e tram in zona che prendevamo con disinvoltura come se fossimo sempre stati li. l'unica cosa non ci sono tanti market vicinissimi, comunque alla fine abbiamo risolto lo stesso

Bella casa in ottima posizione

  • 4 of 5

La" casa dei libri " è molto accogliente con reali spazi per 4/5 persone. Perfettamente attrezzata e ben arredata .

La zona è comoda, ben servita dai mezzi pubblici ma anche buona partenza per muoversi a piedi verso i vari quartieri storici della città. La signora Maria Ana molto puntuale e simpatica.

Siamo stati molto bene e ci torneremmo volentieri.
