About Cristina Abreu

We are lucky to own a collection of nine fabulous villas in Portugal, most of them in Madeira Island, this is our first in Lisbon. Apart from running the houses I am also a writer, publisher and interior designer. We launched the award winning publishing company, Funchal-Publications in 2005 that has several travel books. This complement of books, history & local knowledge is something we like to pass on to our guests, and makes each holiday experience special.

Cristina Abreu purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Cristina Abreu chose Belém

Location, location, location. We fell in love with Belem having seen all of Lisbon, this had the best light and atmosphere. Its the complement of beautiful views, a historic building with a box ceiling and other stunning period features that are unique. The houses dates from the 1830´s but has been fully modernised with all mod-cons but keeping all the architectural features intact. We love that it is high up on the third floor like a princes tower that looks onto the river, museums and pretty houses nearby. Just in front is the Belem Library, we have dozens of nice little shops, restaurants and quirky portuguese places to visit.

What makes this apartment unique

Located by the river, museums, foodie places. The electric tram takes you to Chiado and cais do Sodre. We think the building has enormous charm, once inside the apartment you can relax, enjoy the views, tall ceilings and lots of light from the full length windows and terrace. The interior decoration has focused on a colourful palette, with luxurious fabrics, a nod to Portuguese culture witha bespoke 18th century tile table, custom artwork by Portuguese artists and little details to make your stay as nice as possible.

Awesome location, tastefully decorated.

  • 5 of 5

Great place. Well appointed, relatively quiet for a city flat, great hosts. Even a thoughtful welcome basket. Photos represent the flat well (flat is actually nicer than the photos!). Safe neighborhood. And the water pressure in the shower was amazing. I hope to be able to stay here in the near future! As the host clearly notes, there are stairs to get to the flat. Not a problem for us, but might not work for everyone. Again, though, loved the place! Do your self a favor and stay here!

Charming apartment in a fabulous city!

  • 5 of 5

Location away from the center of the city but easy access by bus or uber. The stairs are steep - no problem for us but could be an issue for some. Overall, apartment was filled with light, clean and very well stocked. Highly recommend!

Beautiful flat, great location, and loved the view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this flat - residential, yet lots to do within walking distance in Belem, and very easy to get around since the tram, the buses and the trains are all so close by and run so frequently. The flat itself is very clean and well-appointed - even a washer / dryer (not very common to have the dryer!). The bedroom is in the back of the flat, so it was very quiet at night. The stairs are a bit steep, but well worth it when you look out the front windows to see the view. There's a small patio - just enough for a table and two chairs - but perfect for having coffee in the morning or wine in the evening. Luisa was very helpful - she met us at the flat, showed us how things worked (and there's a great binder with instructions), and even had a welcome basket of milk, coffee, custard tarts, strawberry jam and wine for us - what a nice treat! There's a small market down the street as well, with very friendly staff.

Thank you so much for sharing this lovely apartment with us.

Lovely apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our 10 day stay in the apartment. It was exactly as advertised. Charmingly decorated, quiet, and comfortable. The apartment location was an easy walk to the center of Belem and short cab ride to the center of Lisbon. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

We love this part of Lisbon, by the river in a central location. Nearby you have several museums and monuments such as Palacio da Ajuda, Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, Torre de Belem, Museu dos Coches, Maat Museum and Centro Cultural de Belem so you are right in the heart of Cultural Lisbon. Delicous food on your doorstep, not only are the to die for Pasteis de Belem on our road and Santini icecream parlour, but we also have great Portuguese restaurants, Thai, Chinese, Italian and much more to make it very difficult to eat at home. A good transport network gets you to all the other places in Lisbon such as Chiado, Alfama, Cais do Sodre and even by ferry to the other side of the river. The train station across the road goes to the beaches of Cascais and Estoril. You can choose between modern buses, traditional trams, tuk tuks or walking as that will get you to most places as well. We love the fabulous light, the river views from the balcony and enjoying a glass of wine looking at the Maat museum and river boats going by. There is a very good reason why the President of Portugal lives a couples of houses down the road in the most important palace in Portugal, as Belem is the most scenic part of Lisbon.
