About the property

This recently restored apartment (2011) is located on a quiet and peaceful spot of the historical Castelo district, in the midst of an effervescent cultural life and several beautiful churches that can be found throughout the neighbourhood.

It has 4 bedrooms, a living room, a bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen with a marquise as a dining area and a wonderful terrace to relax and enjoy some stunning views of the city's geographical beauty. The apartment has plenty of windows, making it very bright and sunny, and offers free WIFI connection and Cable TV.

All this, just a few metres away from the city centre, and close to various transportation access points, such as the Metro Underground (Rossio, Martim Moniz), City Buses (737) and the notorious (28E, 12E) Tram.

Resting at the top of Lisbon's most famous hill, it hovers right above the mysterious and labyrinthic alleyways of the ancient neighbourhoods of Alfama and Mouraria, birthplace of fado.

An adventure waiting around every corner.

"Me and my friends had an amazing stay in Bernardo''s beautiful apartment! The location was perfect and so was the view- we almost didn''t want to leave the flat to explore Lisbon because we enjoyed sitting on the balcony and looking over the roof tops so much. The interiors of the flat are very nice as well and Bernardo was a great host. I would fully recommend this flat!"

Wohnung mit Weitblick

  • 5 of 5

wer im Stadtkern und trotzdem ruhig wohnen möchte, der ist hier genau richtig. Nach einem langen Tag in den vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten der Stadt hat man auch noch den Komfort mit Fahrstühlen wieder in die Höhe zu fahren und so wieder die Stadt mit Abstand zu betrachten. Einfach traumhaft.

Nur Bernardo sind wir leider nicht begegnet, na vielleicht beim nächsten Mal, ganz sicher nochmal Lissabon

Nous sommes 4 amies, nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour à Lisbonne et cet appartement y est pour quelque chose! Nous mettons en avant la gentillesse de Bernardo et sa maman pour nous accueillir et même nous "assister" durant notre séjour! L'appartement était conforme à l'annonce, beaucoup d'informations qui nous ont permis de mieux apprécier notre séjour! C'était parfait...une adresse à retenir!

Sehr schöne Wohnung mit grandiosem Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber, sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, komfortabel, mit äußerst bequemen Betten, und einem super Ausblick. Das ganze Haus ist sehr gepflegt.

Bernardo Trancoso hat uns sehr nett empfangen und uns gute Tips gegeben und war auch sonst äußerst zuvorkommend.

In unmittelbarer Nähe findet man gute, landestypische Restaurants, Z.B..

aus dem Haus kommend links, am Ende links den Hügel hoch zum Aussichtspunkt an der Kirche.

Von der Unterkunft aus lässt sich die Stadt prima erkunden, zu Fuß über Treppen, mit Aufzügen, mit der Tram oder auch mal mit dem Taxi.

Wir haben einen sehr guten Eindruck von Lissabon und seinen Einwohnern mit nach Hause genommen und kommen gerne wieder.
