About Ana Sofia Fernandes

The Vila Garden Guesthouse was born from a dream of a portuguese couple. Passionate about travelling and hospitality, the two young entrepreneurs seeked create a guesthouse and their dream came true.

We are a family business, with a genuine and a very much portuguese service. We know that every guest is unique and with different preferences. Having this is thought in mind, we gathered the best team. Filled with energy and lots of sympathy, our employees will become your best allies to discover Lisbon.


Dear Guests, I'm Sofia and i'm graduate in Marketing and Management, but after 8 years in a dull and sad office position, I decided to change my life and dedicate myself to the thing I love most: working daily with people.

I have always lived in Lisbon and I simply love this city. I love how fast you can get from the airport to Downtown. I love to get lost in the little and picturesque streets of Alfama and the Castle and to discover new restaurants and places to visit.

But above all I love to share these discoveries with other people. Dare yourself to explore Lisbon and count on me to help you discovering the biggest secrets of our city.


Hello everyone! I am Márcio and I can literally tell you that I was born in the hospitality business. In the first years of my childhood I lived with my parents in a little guest house managed by them and since an early age I got used to the frenzy environment of running a hotel business.

When I had to choose my degree there was no doubts: I wanted Hotel Management. However, since the first internship I realized that managing a large hotel was not what I was looking for. I enjoy a personal and closest contact with the guests, to have time to share tips about the city and to be able to help each guest in an unique way. It was at that moment that we had the opportunity to open our own guest house. We decided to open it in the very same neighbourhood where we still live after so many years and where we know ever

Why Ana Sofia Fernandes chose São Jorge de Arroios

We are 5 minutes away from the center, have the most amazing staff, and our building is clean, somewhat quiet and private. Vibrant atmosphere, which is an influence of this trendy, cosmopolitan city itself, we have all kinds of public services and shops nearby, and our facility is opened 24 hours a day!

Wonderful stay in Lisbon

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay here, everything was very clean and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Loved the 24hr guest service. The only downside was the lack of common space in the apartment if you are staying with multiple people and the lack of space to store your clothing while there. It was fine for the three nights but any longer and I would want a dresser to store clothing so we aren’t living out of suitcases.

Thank you for making our stay enjoyable!

This was indeed a gem steps away from the heart of Lisbon

  • 4 of 5

Great apartment on the fourth floor. We actually stayed here twice during our stay in Portugal. The first time we stayed in apartment 1 which was just awesome and a nice fit for our family of 4. The second time we checked in, the receptionist checked us into the wrong apartment (apartment 2) because she had given our apartment to someone else 😡.

Apartment 2 was not so great. First off it was small for us and the layout was just off. This review would have been a 5 if not for that little snafu. That being said, my review will be based on apartment 1.

Apartment one was a great fit for our family. Nice layout and tastefully furnished. The only drawback was that it was on the fourth floor with no elevator and those stairs were a killer. Everything was nice and clean, we even had maid service. Definitely money well spent. Thank you.
