About Filipe Rodrigues

I´m an architect working and living in Lisbon. I love Lisbon!

Filipe Rodrigues purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Filipe Rodrigues chose Lisbon City

This apartment use to be where I live when I was studing architecture. After this, the apartment was my architecture studio. Now I share it with people that want to meet Lisbon just as it is. In the neighborhood of Graça you can have the real feeling of Lisbon, not only because of the place it self but also because of the people.

What makes this apartment unique

Taste of Lisbon in Graça: views, local attractions, people and walking distance to main attractions of Lisbon. If you come with children and want to have a break in Lisbon there is a friendly neighbour (M. Inês) that can take care of them just as she does with her grand children.

Guestbook comments from the owner

J'ai aimé l'espace (trés belle hauteur sous plafond supérieure à 3 voire 4 mètres). L'appartement est trés design avec une jolie déco épurée ponctuée de beaux objets pour certains trés joliment récupérés, les luminaires en particulier, spectaculaires. A tel point que j'ai pris des photos pour m'en inspirer pour ma propre déco ! Nous n'avons pas eu trop chaud grâce au ventilateur surpuissant et au fait que l'appartement est traversant et permet de créer un courant d'air grâce aussi aux fenétres oscillo-battantes. Le clou du spectacle c'est la véranda avec une vue panoramique sur Lisbonne, suffisemment grande pour y déjeuner, avec un peu de verdure et du basilic frais, indispensable pour la salade de tomates. Il est aussi trés bien situé car on descend au centre à pied en 10 minutes. Tous les commerces sont au bout de la rue avec station de taxi et arrêt de bus et de tramway (le fameux 28E). Le quartier est trés sympa, bien portugais.

Good location and quiet area

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was well furnished, a bit on the funky side but very comfortable, it had everything we needed. It is close to public transport, grocery, restaurants, and for walkers it's a good easy walk to downtown. Filipe was very accommodating even when we missed our flight and arrived 8 hours later. We would definately return.

Beautiful Apartment, Great Location & Great Value

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly has we envisioned from the pictures – lovely. It stayed cool during the days and its position on the hill allowed for a very comfortable breeze at night. Phillipe was excellent at communicating before, during (if needed) and after the trip – to ensure all were satisfied. The amenities and location were both stellar. This is not a criticism but future renters should note that whereas there are many fantastic sites, views, shops and restaurants all around the apartment - which should be explored - it will require a short (and very cheap) cab or trolley ride to get to most other neighborhoods, including the popular Principe Real and Barrio Alto (unless you’re a power walker or runner.) This was NOT a problem for us but if you haven’t been to Lisbon before and are only looking at a flat map, it won’t necessarily indicate that the city is not as manageable on foot as one might think, given the many hills and hot weather. Staying outside of the busier neighborhoods was what we wanted, as it forced us to explore a much worthy area of the city that otherwise we might not have. Again, we loved everything about the apartment, its location, and the communication that went into our stay. This great value helped make for a great trip.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Felipe's apartment was perfect for our family of three. It is beautifully furnished and decorated. It's high above the city and close to wonderful scenic views. We walked to many of the sites we wanted to visit and took taxis or tuk-tuks coming back at night. There is a colorful mural on the side of the building and we enjoyed seeing it from various places around the city. The apartment is about two blocks from a street that has lots of shops, some restaurants and a trolley stop. Felipe emailed us a list of recommended cafes and restaurants. It was our first visit to Lisboa and we loved the city and the apartment. We would definitely stay there again.

Clean, Spacious, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Yes, the picture that you see actually is the view out your back window. The apartment is very spacious with room for everything. The location is ideal. It is easy to get to everywhere in Lisbon. We mostly took public transportation, although because taxis were so inexpensive we took more than normal. The apartment is located in a wonderful neighborhood without many tourists. There were great restaurants and services close by so your could have spent the entire time there rather than explore the rest of Lisbon.

Felipe, the owner was very accommodating. While he did not meet us at the apartment...his fabulous housekeeper did....he called a couple of times to see if there was anything that we needed to make our stay better. He even gave us some hits about Porto as we traveled on. I would definitely recommend this to others and would stay there again should I get back to Portugal.

Spacious, comfortable, beautifully designed apartment with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was a pleasure -- fabulous views from the indoor terrace and bedroom, a well appointed bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen. The layout was artistically designed, plenty of light. The location was great, was not touristy, felt like we were living there, not just visiting. The apartment was conveniently located, close to markets, restaurants, metro, and tram. A short metro ride from just about everything.

Filipe, the owner, could not have been warmer or more welcoming. (And the cleaning woman who met us at the apartment was sweet and helpful). Filipe oriented us to the neighborhood and gave us wonderful suggestions about things to see and do. Although the weather was often rainy and chilly (uncharacteristic of Lisbon for April), we still managed to have a good time. Some of the highlights: The Gulbenkian Museum, the Bernardo Collection at the modern museum of the Centro Culturel, a day trip to Sintra by train (including a visit to the Palaccio Pena), a ride on Tram 28 all over the city, and buying "natas" at the Pastel de Belem (the bakery best known for these wonderful, custard-filled pastries), a visit to the Denegro Chocolate Store in Rato. (These chocolates are made there in the store and the flavors and fillings are like nothing you will taste anywhere else), and going to the Clube de Fado to hear Fado music-- unique to Portugal and not to be missed. Taxis are cheap and easy to get everywhere, and the metro is easy as well.

Filipe was kind enough to arrange a cab to take us from the apartment to the airport at the end of our stay. He went above and beyond to make us feel at home and taken care of. It was a pleasure to meet Filipe as much as it was a pleasure to visit Lisbon.

Beautiful apartment & excellent location: would stay again!

  • 4 of 5

The listing description was accurate and we were pleased with the property and location- we would recommend it to friends and family. If we visit Lisbon again we would stay in this apartment again. Although we did not meet the owner he was easy to contact and very helpful over the phone.

The apartment is on a quiet road near excellent transport links to the city centre, such as a taxi rank (it cost approximately 5 euros to reach Baixa!) and 28 tram stop. There are also a variety of restaurants, bakeries and shops at the end of the road where we bought groceries.

The apartment itself is beautifully decorated, furnished and lit. It also felt very private and safe, with secure windows and doors. It has modern amenities and was spotlessly clean. The TV and wifi worked well. There are incredible views of Lisbon, both from the apartment's large back window, and from the street.

The only minor issues were that there was no way to attach the shower head to the wall in the bathroom. Also, noise from the shared stairwell travelled far at night, which may be disturbing to people sleeping on the sofa bed.

Located between the most famous sights of the city this apartment is a real screen over Lisbon and the Tagus river. Situated in the old town centre in the quiet area of 'Graça', it´s just 150 meters from the 'Senhora do Monte' (city´s highest Belverdere), 300m from the tram stop (famous 'Electrico 28') which provides a historical walk through the hills of Lisbon and 400m from the subway station. The popular neighbourhood of 'Graça' is two steps from the famous market 'Feira da Ladra', the 'São Jorge' Castle, the Monastery of 'São Vincente' and the 'Baixa Pombalina'. 'Graça' is known for its people, by the succession of viewpoints over the city and river, terraces, narrow streets, stairs, shops, traditional restaurants and 'Fado' houses ... If you prefer the comfort of the apartment you will find the 'Forno do Tijolo' market 's within 200m to prepare meals with fresh products from the region.
