About this listing
At the heart of Lisbon's most vibrant neighbourhood - Bairro Alto - you will be able to enjoy the cosmopolitan face of this beautiful and hip city, while you will be embedded in a time travel through tradition and heritage, all on walking distance.
Discover Lisbon from this spacious and sunny apartment in the traditional and popular Bairro Alto neighbourhood.
On the 4th floor of a charming hundred year old building it offers all the commodities in the city's best location, surrounded by many touristic attractions and with the best transport facilities, providing an easy access to Sintra and Cascais or the beaches in the neighboring coast lines. The epicenter of fun!
Down the street you get to Largo Camoes and Chiado, there you have access to the subway and the traditional trams, or you can enjoy charming cafes, sunny esplanades and the central shopping streets that extend to Rua Augusta in a pleasant walk.
The riverside at Cais do Sodre or Praça do Comercio (one of the most iconic squares in the city facing the river) is a short 15 minutes away on foot.
The traditional Trams at Bica or Gloria, viewpoints like Sao Pedro de Alcantara or Santa Catarina, Principe Real square, the Botanical Garden and Natural History Museum, the main theater D. Maria II at Rossio, the opera S. Carlos and the modern art Museum in Chiado are within a 10 minutes reach, walking through cheerful streets and amazing sights.
Right at the door step you can find Fado houses, typical restaurants, small designer and artist's shops and the main nightlife spots (that won't bother your sleep as you close the window).
All is close, and you can view the river from our balconies so you can also enjoy the great light filling the comfortable living room and relax.
IDEAL FOR ONE PERSON OR A YOUNG COUPLE:
The apartment features a living room with TV, the main bedroom with a queen size bed, a second room that can also accommodate guests in a bed sofa or be used as a dinning area, a bathroom with bathtub and a big window, and a kitchen/eating area fully equipped. All bed linen and towels are provided.
The first and most important house rule is that our guests should feel at home and regard the apartment as theirs.
To fully appreciate the apartment don't hesitate to ask me any questions. I always try to provide the maximum comfort to my guests and I wish them to feel as I do when I'm enjoying my home.
I provide all towells and linen.
The kitchen is equiped with everything we feel needed to cook, bake and enjoy a nice meal. There is no microwave hoven (we don't like them....).
A few basic rules:
. it is important to lock the apartment door whenever you leave, it is not a dangerous area but it feels nice to be safe
. I always open the windows in the morning, it is great to fill the apartment with warm sun and fresh air. But if you are returning in the night it is better to close the windows before dark to keep the warm inside
. After a shower, it's great to open the bathroom windows to let the humid air out
. When you finish your holidays and leave the apartment, I appreciate that the rubbish is taken to the green bin at the buildings door
It is ok to smoke in the apartment but preferrably not in the bedroom. There's several windows and 2 living rooms where you can enjoy a cigarrete.
The best experience is to return home knowing that my guests had a great time in my city and enjoyed staying in my apartment. Welcome and thanks!!
