2 Townhouses, Lisbon Center: Great Views, Plenty of Space

Bedrooms 5
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

Two beautifully restored 19th-century townhouses, Casa Villa Serra & Casa Joaquuina are on a quiet, private street above Lisbon's Praca dos Restauradores... just 8 minutes walk to the Rossio, the city's main plaza, with easy access to every possible point of interest.

Casa Joaquina has been our family's gathering place for years: the open living area, big downstairs game room (complete with pool/air hockey table), rooftop terrace and ample kitchen mean that you never feel crowed--even when travelling with a group. At the same time, Casa Villa Serra’s multi-level design provides privacy for couples or extended families traveling together. And the views from the living room and terrace at Casa Villa Serra are truely fantastic.

Whether your group is family, friends, or a mix of the two, Casa Joaquina and Casa Villa Serra have something for everyone, with enough space to keep the peace.

Despite interior stairs at both houses, child safety gates can be provided to make them suitable for toddlers and young children.

It's time: bring your group to Lisbon!

About The Owner

In June 2001, we kissed Seattle good-bye and moved to our family's ancestral Portugal to work with Habitat for Humanity/Portugal. Soon afterward, in an attempt to protect ourselves from the crashing dollar, we diversified into Euro-zone real estate... and we couldn't be more pleased with the result: sharing our love of the Portuguese people and culture with guests from around the world has been a delight. We now have five historically-protected homes in our little medieval neighborhood... right in the middle of town, yet oh-so-quiet and charming! (Just 3 - 8 minutes from Lisbon's main plaza, the Rossio.) Walk everywhere from here; or stay home and relax on your sunny terrace. Many thanks to all our guests for the support and encouragement. We look forward to seeing you again someday soon. Until then, Godspeed.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2009

Why The Owner chose Lisbon

Our Lisbon homes are located in an historic area, protected by the Portuguese government because of its unique value; the exteriors look just as they did in the 19th century, with even the paint color regulated to ensure authenticity. Most of the buildings in our Historic Preservation neighborhood were built in the 1500-1800s and all our properties retain their old-world flavor. Nowhere in this neighborhood will you find McVillas with plate-glass windows... instead, prepare to step back in time.

What makes this villa unique

These two townhouses face each other across a quiet street to provide the perfect mix of privacy and togetherness. Casa Villa Serra has the amazing views, Casa Joaquina has the comfortable, open living spaces where everyone can gather.
