Lovely area and we'll equiped apartment

  • 4 of 5

Our host, Nuno, was very helpful. The apartment is quite old, not large but well equiped and in one of the most pleasant parts of Lisbon. Be prepared for some noise at night - refuse collections etc and some steep stairs but this is normal for the older apartments and streets. Overall we were very happy with our stay

The absolute best!

  • 5 of 5

What a treat it was to spend four nights in this lovely spot. After a prolonged arrival process at the airport, followed by our taxi depositing us on the wrong street, Nuno walked us through how to find the apartment over the phone, and when we finally arrived he had a bottle of Port and custard tarts waiting for us. The apartment was very clean, spacious, and in an ideal location. Nuno provided a binder of information on Lisbon sights, local restaurants, and other useful info, of which we made good use. Overall we could not have asked for a better place to stay. I highly recommend staying here. If we ever return to Lisbon we will be back at your apartment, Nuno! Thank you so much!

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad that we picked this property to stay in. It was very comfortable, well maintained and we didn't want to leave! We felt like locals, and enjoyed the varied restaurants and coffee shops in the area. Nuno, the owner was so helpful and welcoming and even gave me balloons for my birthday. He couldn't have been nicer. We are already planning our next trip there. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
