The Space

The flat is located in the Bairro of Santa Catarina, in the historical centre of Lisbon. The flat is in the 4th floor of a 18th century building with marble and wood staircases, and 19th century tiles in the walls. It has a magnificent solar exposition and an incredible almost 360º view over the hills and the Tagus River. The building and the flat has been recently renovated (April 2008). In the renovation, carefully done under the supervision of an architect, the apartment was entirely reconstructed, from the roof structure to the pavement, guaranteeing absolute safeness, light and thermal comfort. All materials used in the construction are 100% natural/ ecological: wooden structure and pavement; wood-fibbers panels for roof insulation; and traditional lime mortar in walls. All together they greatly enhance the quality of the inner environment, guaranteeing you the difference in your stay. Despite the big remodelling, the spirit of the traditional Pombaline architecture remains intact in such elements as the fireplace, the tiled walls and the staircase structure.

  • Where to start the praise! Staying in Pedro’s beautiful renovated apartment in arguably the best neighborhood in Lisbon was brilliant. The apartment is as perfect as described and after waking on our first morning to the views over Lisbon from every direction really set the scene for an amazing experience. We had grand intentions of traveling out of town etc but ended up spending time in Santa Catarina and its surrounding wonderful neighborhoods and literally ate our way around this amazing city discovering incredible Portuguese wines and the friendly people of Lisbon. We fell in love with Lisbon and Pedro’s apartment. Now for the host. You read reviews and the nice comments about the hosts, blah, blah. But after re checking through Pedro’s reviews and having met and got to know him over our week I can say that every one who stays here has been touched by his passion for hosting travellers from around the world. Making you feel a home and cared for. He is very professional in his running of his apartments. His genuine concern for our stay and his recommendations for where to eat, the wine and culture of a city that he is passionate about is priceless. I hope others travellling to Lisbon also have the wonderful experience of this apartment and Pedro. So don’t delay book it before for regret it. Brad & Debra

  • We had a fantastic stay in Santa Catarina. We were welcomed with a great bottle of wine and spent a good 30 mins chatting about all of the best places to sample some authentic Portuguese food - Patio 13! The apartment was very clean and exactly how the pictures describe while Pedro has done a fantastic job of renovating the build. Very tasteful while staying true to the historical nature of the building. The apartment has stunning views on all sides across the city and down to the river - I don't think I've seen a shower with a better view!!

    The location is perfect for seeing Bairro Alto as well as the tourist spots with the main square just a 10 min walk away. We had a good work out hiking up the hill everyday but there is the tram just a few metres away for those less inclined to walk.

    All in all it was a fantastic trip with a great apartment and excellent host. we couldn't ask for more!!

  • Pedro could not have been more friendly, kind and helpful. From welcoming us into the apartment to sending us off in a taxi on our way back to the airport, he's been a great host to us.

  • Excellente expérience de bout en bout. Sans doute le meilleur rapport qualité prix de l'ensemble de ma vie lorsqu'il s'est agi de Réserver un hotel / un gite / une maison d'hôte.
    Excellente communication de Pedro avant et pendant le séjour, acceuil personnalisé et surtout un appartement niveau 4/5 etoile pour le prix d'un 3, avec une déco qui tape dans le mille. Pedro vous donne les conseils sur demande, sa proximité (il habite au 1er étage) est super pratique. Je garde le silence sur la (bonne) "surprise" qui vous attend quand vous prendrez votre douche. Quartier central, touristique mais appartement tranquille. le matin, vous pouvez démarrer tranquillement avec un brunch dans l'appartement, ou un petit déj dans un café de la rue à coté, puis démarrer vos visites touristiques à pied. Le charme de l'appartement, sa situation exceptionnelle vous feront y revenir pour vous y reposer ou prendre un verre avant de ressortir le soir. A côté de l'appartement je conseille le restaurant Pharmacia, dont le cadre est au top, comme sa cuisine et le bar lounge Numba. Seul warning sur Lisbonne : il faut des bonnes chaussures de marches, les pavés sont glissants et les rues tortueuses metteront à mal vos derbies et vos talons hauts !

  • We had a really awesome stay in pedro's appartment. The appartment is a dream and look like all the pictures on this site! The shower and the view were the best we had in years. Everything is really clean and the appartment is more than full equipped. Pedro is a really nice and gentle host. He is really helpfull and polite. We felt ourself welcome from the moment we booked. The appartment is nearby all the tourist spots and nearby the river and trainstation. We felt sorry to leave the appartment after 4 great days. We will definitely come back! Thanks for everything!

  • After staying at Pedro's loft were are absolutely spoiled for other Air BnB hosts :)
    The flat is chich, light, clean and airy, and the bed was just perfect!

    We enjoyed the very central location, and the stunning views from the apartment and the very nearby and cool small park and cafes with amazing views and a cool and relaxed vibe.

    Pedro was very accommodating, helping is with everything from A-Z in order for us to have the best possible stay.

    This is def. a place we will stay again when visiting Lisboa, and will be recommending to our friends and family.
