The Space

Beautiful sunny apartment, for daily/short/long let. You will enjoy lots of natural light, a memorable sunrise and sunset, and total privacy... The apartment is fully furnished, and I'll supply all the fresh linen and towels. There is Wi-Fi throughout the apartment, as well as a cable TV connection with plenty of series and films, all in their original languages. Kitchen fully equipped.

My apartment is on the top floor of a 3-floor building and has a charming, peaceful terrace overlooking the Tagus River. It is a beautiful, safe area, in the antique part of Lisbon, near the Castle, Alfama and Graça. You can walk to Museu do Fado (our national song and UNESCO heritage], visit our beloved 400-year-old flea market, the Miradouro da Graça, the National Pantheon, the Fernando Pessoa Foundation (our Literature Nobel Prize), and much more... all within a short walking distance.

To get to the apartment, there is a very convenient Metro connection from the airport to Santa Apolónia station; then it's just a 5mn ride on the bus or taxi up the hill. If you feel fit, you can even walk up, but it's steep (hence the great view!) :)

Also available in the apartment, to be borrowed: great books in English, German, French, Italian, etc., maps of the city, great tips about where to go and what to do...

Lisbon is a paradise for walkers, and for people who enjoy lively, old streets, belvederes, a perfect fusion of modern and genuine old heritage. Just like Rome, it is set on 7 hills and they all have interesting different cultural aspects and history.

There are buses and a Metro which is 3 stations away from the famous Bairro Alto and Chiado, the shopping city centre where you can find all the glamorous brands, and also lots of trendy bars and elegant restaurants. If you prefer, you will also find bohemian bars and the famous "Tascas", (cheap restaurants) with great food and atmosphere... You'll get there in 10/15mn. You can even walk there!

From the lively city center, we have a night bus that stops only a few meters from my apartment, very safe and the same price as the day line (1,80€). Short ride, 10 minutes or less. A taxi ride from the bar area to the apartment costs around 6€ during the night.

If you arrive in Lisbon by car, there is great on-street parking right in front of the apartment, and you can leave your car there for as long as you like, all for free!

This is going to be a trip to remember, full of great memories to keep and cherish! Portuguese people are very welcoming and when you smile and are polite, they will go out of their way for you! :)

Guest Access

Guest will have access to everything inside the apartment, all the equipment is in full working order, you can use the LCD TV, watch videos, read books and magazines, and enjoy a fast internet service.

Interaction with Guests

Within my possibilities, I'll be there to welcome you, give you the keys, and explain everything... after that, you'll have total privacy. I'll be available to answer all your questions, by mail or phone... if necessary, I'll go to the apartment to sort out something by your request.

  • Great experience in that appartment. Clean, comfy , huge. ¨Perfect to enjoy the city at a bus ride away.

  • Cila is probably the nicest host I've met through Airbnb! Her answers were always quick, and she went out of her way to make sure we had a great stay.

    The apartment is as pictured and features everything you'll need. The view from the bedroom terrace is really relaxing, you'll never want to leave it! Having to climb three flights of stairs after a long day of wandering in the city can sometimes be challenging but believe me, it is worth it!
    The neighborhood is quiet, there is a bus stop right behind the corner, the supermarket is within walking distance, and there are at least 3 pastelarias in the street.

    I definitely recommend staying there!

  • Très joli appartement en duplex avec une jolie petite terrasse pour le petit déjeuner ou pour l'apéro après une journée de marche et de découverte dans Lisbonne. Cila est très disponible et gentille ; l'appartement bien situé (bus juste à côté, on rejoint vraiment très vite le coeur de la ville) et bien équipé. merci Cila !

  • Ein wunderschönes Appartement, die Aussicht von der Terrasse ist fantastisch! Die Lage ist sehr gut, in einem ruhigen Wohnquartier - und doch zentrumsnah. Cila ist eine wunderbare Gasteberin. Gerne auf ein nächstes mal!

  • Cila is a very friendly host, and the appartement ist great. We enjoyed the stay there

  • We can happily confirm that all the previous, positive feedback is completely correct. Cila is a really friendly, helpful hostess. Here place is basic, romantic and has a great view. We especially loved the breakfast on the sunny balcony in the morning! The only minus is the hard bed.. It made sleeping a little uncomfortable in our opinion. But for the rest everything was perfect and we would definitely recommend it to our friends.

  • The apartment was great, and the view amazing! The neighbourhood was relaxed and quiet, yet nearby a metrostation. Drink coffee and eat sweet things at the bakery around the corner ;) Cila was a great hostess, she even picked us up when we arrived, and called us a cab when we left, so nice! We cannot think of a better stay and introduction to the city Lisbon.

  • Cila is very attentive and friendly.
    The apartment, a duplex, is very bright on the 2nd floor with a balcony surrounded by plants where we had our breakfasts with stunning views over the Tagus river.
    Located at 3 bus stations from Apollonia station, a transport node, the city center and the airport are not far away.
    We highly recommend this vacation in this beautiful port city.

  • Great apartment, great terrace, just a couple of minutes from the city centre in a nice neighbourhood... Great week in Lisbon.

    April 2014
  • This apartment experience is all one would hope for to enjoy and experience Lisbon. It is spacious and well arranged, and in a safe and quiet neighborhood. It is a calm and quiet place with a second level that leads to a large terrace overlooking the Tagus River.

    The kitchen is generously equipped for any level of cooking and the fireplace and library of hundreds of books are a special treat. Transportation and markets of all kinds are minutes away on foot.

    Cila is a marvelous host who blends privacy with attention to the guests needs. Without hesitation we recommend this property for your future visit to Lisbon.
