Comfortable light-and-bright apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two children loved our 1 month stay in this apartment. It worked out really well for our longer stay -- it had the amenities we needed and was in a perfect location. Cafes, parks, beautiful views and interesting sites were all within a short walk from the apartment. The high ceilings and windows make this apartment feel spacious and bright -- a perfect place to relax and feel at home. We would love to come back and stay again in Lisbon, and would highly recommend this apartment.

5/5 pour Cool Chic Lisbonne où nous avons fait , moi et mon amie, un séjour de trois jours.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié cet appartement. Il est très agréable à vivre, très clair, décoré avec goût, bien équipé et très silencieux. Les chambres sont confortables. Le quartier est aussi agréable avec des jardins tout près. Aucun problème pour les transports ( un arrêt de bus à deux pas qui mène à la station Rato).Le propriétaire nous attendait et nous a accueillies très aimablement. Des petits " pastels de nata" nous ont été offerts. Dans les rues voisines il y a de nombreux petits restaurants. A noter une excellente pizzeria et un excellent glacier !Nous reviendrons avec plaisir dans cet appartement.

Sehr schönes Appartment in toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben das Appartment als 5-köpfige Familie für unsere Lissabon Reise gebucht. Es ist neu renoviert und liebevoll eingerichtet und liegt im 2. Obergeschoss eines typischen Lisabonner Wohnhauses aus dem 19. Jahrhundert. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Die Lage: Es liegt westlich des Stadtzentrums auf einem der Hügel Lissabons. Die nächste Metrostation (Rato) und die bekannte historische Strassenbahn (Linie 28) liegen ca. 10 Gehminuten entfernt. Eine Buslinie (773) fährt unmittelbahr am Appartment los. Aber selbst das Stadtzentrum kann man gut zu Fuss erreichen (wennman nicht völlig fußfaul ist).

Es gibt einen kleinen Supermarkt und einige nette Cafés und Restaurants in der Nähe. Besonders zu empfehlen: Carlos Restaurant.

Der Kontakt zum Vermieter (Jorge) war sehr angenehm. Er spricht gut Englisch und hat uns einige gute Tipps gegeben.

Insgesamt: Sehr zu empfehlen!
