This charming and exclusive fully equipped two bedroom apartment each one with its private bathroom has also a separate dining and living rooms. In addition, it offers you a fantastic 25 sqm terrace for outdoor meals allowing you to get some sun or enjoy a refreshing shower on the warmer days.

We offer you a luxury service giving you the feeling of living in the heart of the historic Lisbon in a quiet and genuine neighborhood enjoying Portuguese hospitality and the authentic city life (Bairro Alto and Chiado).

The apartment is situated in the historical neighborhood of Santa Catarina bearing a unique charm famous for its Palaces, Churches and its scenic belvedere also know by “Adamastor” the Sea Monster.

Situated in a quiet street, however within a walking distance from theaters, museums restaurants, coffees and its famous esplanades, viewpoints, shopping and commercial centers, services and many other attractions, the apartment is very near from the trendy Bairro Alto and the chic Chiado, which for many are considered the most emblematic and central locations in Lisbon.

Within 5 minutes walking, you will be in the heart of the night life neighborhood – Bairro Alto – where you can find both traditional and more sophisticated restaurants, outdoor cafes, bars, second hand clothing, record shops, book stores and art galleries (further details on its more than 250+ commerce shops, restaurants, bars, discotheques, art galleries and museums could be seen at www.ilovebairroalto.com). A bit further you are at the center of the chic Chiado (wealthiest area in Lisbon).

Close to all types of transportation, from the apartment you can easily reach the famous tram 28 that would take you to all the important sites such as Basílica da Estrela, Palácio de São Bento (parliament), Praça do Comércio (largest square in Europe) and up to the Castelo de São Jorge (St. George’s Castle) or just connect you with the underground station at Baixa Chiado. Glória, Bica and Santa Justa Elevators are also on a walking distance, so you don´t need a car to make your way in Lisbon.

Rossio station is also within a close distance, where you can catch the train until last stop at Sintra classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sintra).

Situated just a few blocks away from the apartment towards the river, you will find Cais do Sodré station, from where you can take the ferry to cross the Tagus river to Cacilhas for the shrine of Christ King or the trains to Estoril famous for its casino, the Palace Hotel where James Bond Movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1969 was taped with its finest beaches or until the last stop to Cascais which was former fishing village that gained fame as a resort for Portugal's royal family in the late 19th century and early 20th century and that during the World War II has became home to many of the exiled wealthy families of Europe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cascais).

In the apartment, you will also find city maps and additional tips regarding the monuments, museums, restaurants, night life, Fado houses, beaches and what’s going on in Lisbon.

Beautiful appartment

  • 5 of 5

Exceptionall clean and charming apartment conveniently situated for exploring Lisbon. Had a great time exploring the city, took the train to Sintra, would recommend once there to take hop on hop off bus we didn't realise it was spread over such a large area. Also took train to Cascais was nice to get out of city for day. Thank you so much Fatima and Miguel both very friendly and helpful

Great condo in a good location.

  • 4 of 5

Loved Lisbon! Great owners who gave us a condo tour and tips for the surrounding area. No stairs to get to the condo. Good internet service and free calls back to the US after 9 pm Lisbon time. Has a washing machine but no dryer. Nice patio but we rarely used it as we were out all day. The condo was clean and well cared for. They had free umbrellas to use, which came in handy one day. Overall, I would recommend this condo and Lisbon in general!

Holiday in Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

It was a lovely apartment in a really good position. Nothing was too much for Fatima & Miguel. They made us feel very welcome. We would recommend their apartment to anyone. Plenty of very good eating places around and a really good one across the road. Very convenient.

Comfortable and pleasant apartment with lots of little extras

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 3 nights. Apartment was clean and bright and tastefully decorated with lots of little extras that made it feel like home......such as the welcome drinks. The owners were lovely....helpful in every way. The apartment was only a short walk though hilly walk from the attractions of the city and because it is in the old town only certain cars (taxis and householders) are allowed there...so it was relatively quite for a city location.

Perfect location for a Lisbon holiday

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well located in an older quarter of Lisbon.Facilities are as advertised and provide for a very comfortable stay.Shopping and restaurants are within walking distance.

We were very satisfied with our choice of an apartment for a 2 week stay.Plus we had very helpful and obliging hosts who ensured we were OK including organising taxis to and from the airport.Definitely 5 star.

Upscale and lovely.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister and I recently returned from a great week in Lisbon at this wonderful apartment. We arrived from Porto by train at Santa Appolonia station from which it was a 7 euro cab fare to the apartment for 3 persons with luggage. We were met by the owner, Miguel, a very nice person who speaks perfect English and who showed us around and gave us all pertinent information regarding the apartment and surrounding area. The home itself is fabulous! It is very spacious, immaculately clean, beautifully furnished and decorated. The bedrooms are large with comfortable beds and each very private. The two bathrooms are modern with nice showers. The kitchen is also modern and well equipped with all necessities to prepare full meals which you can either eat in the lovely dining room or the outdoor patio. The living room is spacious and comfortable with a television that has several English channels. There is a nice grocery store within a ten minute walk. It is in a great location in the old town from which you are able to walk to so many points of interest.

We travel quite a lot always renting apartments and consider this home to be one of the very best.

We loved Lisbon and hated to leave but when it came time Miguel arranged for a cab to pick us up at 3:30 A.M. to take us to the airport. 16.50 euros for three persons with luggage. What a bargain as well as a relief to have that taken care of for us.

Lisbon is a wonderful city with lots to see and do. If you have time take a day trip to the lovely hilltop town of Sintra by train. It is very easy and inexpensive, less than 5 euros round trip if you are over 65 (not much more otherwise).

Needless to say, we loved this apartment and highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates a lovely, quality home at a very reasonable price.

Thank you Miguel and Fátima.
