About The Owner

I am passionate about travelling, arts and Lisbon. I spent most of my childhood in this typical neighborhood before moving to Barcelona to study graphic design for three years. Our family lived in this beautiful apartment for many years, where we always welcomed those we love. We would like to share its charm, character and history with you. I am looking forward to hosting you in our family house and hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Excellent accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Have used Home Away for more than 10 years, this apartment was one of the best places to stay. Terrific owner, arranged for airport transfer, met us early with warm pastries, checked on us via email during stay. Very central location, large, beautifully decorated space to accommodate everyone, prompt refund of the deposit. Will definitely use again when in Lisbon!

This property is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This property is centrally located to everything we wanted to do in Lisbon. Ines met is as soon as we arrived and showed us around this well appointed and accurately represented apartment. Three couples shared this location comfortably. Everything was perfect! I would definitely recommend this property.

Nice place in the heart of the Fado area.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. It does get a little noisy at night with the people on the street but not bad enough that we couldn't sleep. The house is very large for European standards and is well equipped with everything you need.

Beautiful apartment in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautiful. It is just as the pictures represent. It has old-world charm combined with all the modern amenities The apartment was large enough to accommodate three couples. The bedrooms were relatively spacious and the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were spotless.

The location is perfect. It is immediately adjacent to the Cathedral. There are a number of restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques in the area. A one minute walk gets you to the Cathedral square where you can catch a tram or a bus or hire a tuk-tuk. All of Lisbon is available.

We rented a tuk-tuk to take us to Belem the first afternoon. We were apprehensive at first, but the driver was amazing He gave us a running commentary as we headed to Belem, then stopped at the Monastery to get us our pastis. He stood in line for us (apparently, there is a special line for the drivers). We got his card and the next day we phoned him up and he took us to an out-of-the way restaurant for a great dinner.

Ines was a wonderful host. She was in constant communication with us from the time we booked the condo. On our arrival, she met us at the apartment and showed us how everything worked and gave us some hints on where to eat and where to go. Our stay was only too brief, two days. When I asked her how to book a taxi to get us to the train station, she took it upon herself to book it for us the night before. She even phoned them again in the morning to make sure they were coming.

Everything about our stay was extraordinary. Hopefully, we'll be back in Lisbon soon. If so, we will definitely stay at Ines' condo again.
