This large charming 1st floor apartment is right in the heart of Old Lisbon near the bottom of the hill at the top of which is situated St George's Castle. With 110 sq. metres of indoor space and 3 bedrooms, our apartment compares favourably with competing smaller rental apartments. In addition the apartment itself has a garden at the rear containing orange and lemon trees and a superb view of the city of Lisbon. It is ideal for slow summer lunches or cool evening dinners. It is a 10 min walk to the castle, but only a 3 minute walk down to the Rossio, considered the centre of the Baixa or Downtown Lisbon. Located in Mouraria, the old Moorish quarter of 12th century Lisbon, the area is quiet and has a village feel to it. The underground, Martim Moniz, and the trams (famous 28 tram passes close by) and buses are only 2 minutes from the house in the Largo de Martim Moniz. All facilities are within walking distance.
The flat has not been rented for a few years while Lisbon Council bureaucracy and consequent renovation occurred. We took this opportunity to carry out a complete makeover of the flat.
A guest book is available to all our guests. Prospective guests should read the reviews on the Homeaway web site that have been written over the several years that we have rented the flat.
Our English-speaking Portuguese friend Paula lives in the same building and is on hand to greet you or assist with any doubts you may have. Her husband, Paulo, can collect or take guests to the airport for 15 euros, if he's available.
A welcoming basket, including wine, is always left for your first relaxing moments in the garden.
