About Ceu da Silva Zacharias

In 1991 began a very happy Portuguese-German relationship, during the three years of training as travel agents in Berlin. Upon successful completion followed several years of valuable experience in specialty tour operators in Berlin and Lisbon. Eight years later, we accepted the offer of our Lisbon friend to buy his apartment in Lapa. After completion of the renovation and personalised furnishing, we spent the winter months in Lisbon regularly with our little daughter. During this time we dealt a lot with the restoration of antiques, historic elements of the building and design objects.

Many friends and guests visited our apartment and thus soon enough we thought of an extension. In 2005 we were able to acquire the old town house in São Vicente / Alfama from our former pharmacist Mr. Pereira, who gave up his business due to his old age. Again we restored lavishly for two years and established four new apartments. The success was overwhelming and we made our own passion as our main profession. Since January 2007, we have been offering our guests many lovingly restored and furnished apartments with fantastic resonance. Our entire, highly motivated team in Berlin and Lisbon is the guarantee for a successful holiday for you. All apartments are carefully chosen and only when everything is one hundred percent right, new apartments are created on our site. All photos and descriptions are provided exclusively by us. From the day our idea began until this day, a lot has changed and we are proud that in 2013 already seventeen Portuguese families were able to stay. This is sustained and fair tourism for us.

Ceu da Silva Zacharias purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Ceu da Silva Zacharias chose Lisbon

Lisbon is our passion. Over 20 years ago we fell in love with this fascinating and unique city. We are glad that we can share this passion with our guests through our excellent apartments. Alexander von Humboldt once referred to Lisbon as the most beautiful city in the world next to Naples and Salzburg. We agree with it without any hesitation.

What makes this apartment unique

This year, we are pleased to offer you new, beautiful and carefully chosen apartments in Lisbon. We furnish most of the apartments personally, with all our long-term experience. The close cooperation with all property owners, many are already our good friends, makes a lot of fun. Our passion is, dear guests, to discover the pleasures for you in this fascinating city in a Lisbon old town house.

Sao Vincente 1

  • 4 of 5

We spent two weeks at the second floor town home apartment. It was very comfortable. The staff were very responsive, and the check in and out were hassle free. We found this apartment a very good deal for the reasonable price. It was close to many nice cafes and markets in the neighborhood, and really gave the feeling of living like a local. The 28 tram stop was nearby. It's a short walk down to the waterfront, but a rather challenging hike back up the hill. Take the tram or a taxi, they are cheap!

We made meals regularly in the kitchen, and it was suffienctly equipped.

Lisbon is lovely!

Preiswerte, sehr zentral gelegene Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Zutreffende Beschreibung. Kleine, aber für zwei Personen völlig ausreichende Unterkunft; sehr sauber und gut ausgestattet. Handtücher könnten bei einem Aufenthalt von 9 Tagen einmal getauscht werden (wäre sicher gemacht worden, wenn wir gefragt hätten!). Guter Kontakt im Vorfeld mit sehr guter Information zur Anreise. In jedem Fall empfehlenswert. Durch die zentrale Lage kann man sich sehr gut selbst versorgen und viele Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuss erreichen; den Rest problemlos mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln. Besonders zu empfehlen ist die Straßenbahn der Linie 28, die ca. 300m von der Unterkunft entfernt hält.

Owner's Response: Ja, sehr gerne hätten wir bei einer kurzen Nachfrage sofort die Handtücher getauscht. Der Arbeitsraum unseres Teams, gleichzeitig der Treffpunkt für unsere Gäste, liegt nur wenige Schritte von der schönen Wohnung und unserem Altstadthaus in Sao Vicente / Alfama entfernt. Gerne stehen wir Ihnen jederzeit zur Verfügung, wenn Sie wieder einmal Sehnsucht haben, das wunderschöne Lissabon zu besuchen.

Guten Tag,

Ganz herzlichen Dank für das Vermitteln der Wohnung. Wir

sind begeistert von Ihrer Webseite, dem Reservationsprozess, der Wohnungsübergabe (Telefon und Übergabe von Frau Adalia), der wunderschön gelegenen Wohnung (die Fotos auf ihrer Webseite entsprechen der Wirklichkeit) und der hervorragenden Ausstattung (Toilettenpapier, Putzmittel, Flüssigseife etc...) und der unkomplizierten Wohnungsabgabe. Ein überaus positives Erlebnis und wir freuen uns bereits jetzt auf einen nächsten Aufenthalt in Lissabon, natürlich in der gleichen Wohnung.

Mit freundlichen Grüssen

The most beautiful tourist attractions in Lisbon's historic town centre, can be found very near to our wonderful Sao Vicente old town house. A traditional bakery and small shops are located opposite our town house in Sao Vicente / Alfama. On top of our old town apartments in Sao Vicente / Alfama invites you to wonder at a fantastic view point with a small cafe and panoramic view over Lisbon. A few steps down the road, lies the significant Renaissance monastery Sao Vicente. Very close by begins the traditional flea market Feira da Ladra begins with a historic market hall and a market for local organic produce. In the lower section of the market is the largest sacred building in Lisbon, the baroque Cathedral Santa Engracia. The old tram lines 12 + 28 offer the most beautiful city tour to the Old town district of Bairro Alto. A bus stop is located opposite to the church of Sao Vicente, 50 m down our old town house.
