Overview

About the property

A fully modernised patio apartment in traditional building in Graça, Lisbon

To be in Graça, close to the Alfama and the centre of Lisbon is where you will find local life. It's not a touristy area, but somewhere for authentic Fado, friendly folk and a peaceful start to your adventure in Lisbon.

This is a newlyy modernised apartment on the first floor, large, light and airy, with a fully equipped kitchen, large dining and sitting area and two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. There is a rear patio for relaxing in the summer shade or winter sun. The apartment has been refitted with brand new equipment, and polished wooden floors throughout.

Good WIFI. A new hotspot WiFi for 2018 is now operating.

The gardens in front have recently been redesigned, and provide roadside parking. Parking is a mix of pay parking 9.00-19.00, some free parking and a public car park nearby.

If you like YOGA, there are sessions nearby.

Please check under NOTES in the payment section that I charge a late arrival fee of 25.00 euros for arrivals after 21.00. This is paid on your arrival and is not included in the final feels to HomeAway to avoid it being added to your service fees payment to HomeAway.

Why Allyson Roberts chose Graça

A lovely traditional building with its old charm, in the heart of Graça and notable for its 19th century blue tiles on the frontage. The apartment has a small patio at the back and tiny balcony at the front.

This is a unique, local area with all amenities and restaurants, including childrens' playground nearby. There is a quiet park at the front of the building, just down from the local art gallery. On-road pay parking at the front, car park 5 minutes walk and a mix of pay and non-pay parking nearby. The apartment is on the first floor and is fully modernised with new comfort! Hot spot WiFi as of 2018. Not to be missed.

What makes this apartment unique

All the equipment and furnishings are new, and the whole apartment has been transformed into a large, light and airy space. You will be walking into a new home, yours to enjoy for your stay. Imagine sitting either in the secluded patio, taking your breakfast or evening drink, or joining the small street cafes on the road at the front.

wonderful spot to feel like a Lisbonite!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, together with a friend, spent eight nights in this Graca apartment in late Apr/early May. It was perfect for our wishes--to be close to all that Lisbon has to offer and also to live briefly in a neighborhood. The cafes, restaurants, and shops were convenient and inviting. Although we spent a lot of time touring around the city, we usually spent evenings in the neighborhood, and we saw Lisbon life at its best. We ate breakfast in the apartment and did not cook but found the kitchen well furnished. Except that I was on vacation, I was even tempted to do laundry in the very nice washing machine.

The famous #28 tram, which has more than one route so plan carefully, is out front. The "tourist" 28 tram is nearby. Depending on one's stamina, the city is very walkable from this location in Graca but public trans--tram, bus, and metro--is close by.

The apartment is ideal for 2-3 adults, or 2 adults and 2 children. Others have commented on the smaller bathroom; we found it very usable, and the larger bathroom is quite capacious for Europe. A sweet patio is off the second bedroom, suitable for breakfast or any meal, drinks in the evening. Climb one flight of steps from the street to reach the first floor.

And, we are happy to report that wifi works well! No worries.

This is a charming apartment and desirable location. We hope to return and know that others will enjoy as well this beautiful apartment in a blue-tiled building. The host, Allyson, is most gracious and welcoming.

Owner's Response: The apartment can host 4 adults, as the single bed in one of the bedrooms extends into a comfortable double bed. On your visit it was set up for 3 guests. I am so glad you found things to your liking.

Our stay in the Apartment was very agreeable, and Allyson was very kind!

The apartment is well furnished, the only thing that requires, some pots more in the kitchen.

Thank you Allison, Good-bye .....see you next time!!

Convenient city location

  • 3 of 5

The Graca neighborhood is great. It is area where residents of Lisbon actually live. It is a lively place with many cafes and shops in the immediate area.

The E28 tram is right outside the door which is a asset and a liability. It is an asset because it makes transport so easy. It is a liability because the tram (which is about 10 feet from the front door) runs about every 20 minutes all day and somewhat less frequently at night. This is a sunny apartment but not a quiet apartment.

As for the apartment itself, the second bathroom is extraodinarily small. The toilet is usable, the shower is a tight squeeze but usable, the sink is a joke. It measures approximately 7 inches by 12 inches. You can wash your hands but forget about washing your face or brushing your teeth.

Turning around in this bathroom is a challenge.

Other than that, the apartment is clean and well appointed. It could use a hairdryer and it certainly should come with more than one key.

Try the Marisquera downstairs at number 25, or any along Rua da Graça. Many more at the end of Rua da Graça near the square, Largo de Graça.

Indian

Said to be the first Indian restaurant in Lisbon. Needs to be confirmed!

On Rua de Monte. Turn right out of front door, take 2nd turning right up small side street and it is on the right.

Wine Bar

Great salads and homemade tortilla. A good place to snack. Rua da Senhora da Monte. This is on the way to a beautiful look out over the city, Miradoura da Senhora do Monte. Well worth a visit. Turn right of of front dorr adn 1st road on right.

Fado bar

Fabulous! If you happen to be there at the right time, Tasca do Jaime. You will encounter a real local flavour. The bar is tiny, the wine is great and the Fado happens, with respect and a degree of reverence. Way off the tourist track! Almost opposite turning into Rua da Sra. Do Monte. Saturday around 17.00.

Takeaway

Grilled meat and crisps. 50 metres right out of front door.

Good cafés, including Café Portuguesa on Rua de Graça.

BEST PLACE IN LISBON

Miradouro-da-Graça

This is on your doorstep, well more or less! At Largo da Graça (turn right from door and walk to end of Rua da Graça, around passed the large Cathedral on the right) a wonderful esplanade, looking across all of Lisbon from where you can watch the sun go down, with a glass of Portuguese wine

LATE ARRIVALS and DEPARTURE TIME
- Arrivals after 21.00 pay a late arrival fee of 25.00 on arrival. This is not included in your Homeawy service fees, as it is a personal requirement on my part. This also means it is not increasing your service fees to HomeAway.
- The City Tax is also a payment on arrival, which I submit to Lisbon Town Hall.
- Please expect to leave before 11.00 a.m. I can usually be flexible, so let's manage it on an individual basis.
