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.

Very stylish apartment
The apartment is very stylish with probably the best shower we’ve had on Holiday. Lots of nice personal touches in the apartment. Louisa who met us on our arrival was lovely and showed us how things worked. The apartment is ideally situated for the attractions of Belem of which there are many. You need the tram or bus to reach the other parts of Lisbon, but the stops are right outside the apartment. Some great restaurants and cafes within 10 minutes walk. The apartment is up three flights of very steep stairs so it may be a problem for some guests.
The apartment is very comfortable and clean. Luisa was friendly and attentive. We liked our stay here. Accomodation between the old city center and the beaches is very convenient. Belem is charming and historical district with with interesting places to visit and great restaurants recommended by Cristina. Also I I enjoyed a morning jog on the gorgeous waterfront. We will be back next year!
A wonderful apartment in Belem - and the best HomeAway property we have stayed in
We loved everything about this flat - beautifully decorated, very clean, perfectly equipped and in a very nice area. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Lisbon and will recommend to others too. Many thanks Julie and David
Great apartment in the perfect location
Super cute place perfect for our family of three. The decor is lovely and the location is terrific in the heart of Belém near the water and the Maat Museum (one of my top ten museum visits of all time). Very comfortable, with air conditioning that worked perfectly when the heat wave settled in. Highly recommend!
Awesome location, tastefully decorated.
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!
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!
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.
