About This Listing
I'm currently remodeling one double room and very shortly will be able to accommodate 5 people comfortably. Will post photos soon! Ask me for further info. Thanks! :)
Beautiful sunny apartment, for short/medium/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 José Saramago 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 center 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", (more economic 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 6-7€ during the night.
If you arrive in Lisbon by car, there is on-street parking right in front of the apartment, and you can leave your car there for as long as you like, and 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 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
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.
Peaceful and very safe area, with lots of tradicional shops.
Great bus/metro connections. Night bus availble throughout the night, every night.
Please, treat my home as if it was yours; it was made available to you on a basis of total trust and respect... :)
Nous avons passé un super séjour dans l'appartement de Cila, en compagnie de notre fils de 2ans et demi! Spacieux, calme et super bien aménagé.
Vraiment conforme à la description, et les commentaires des autres personnes ayant logés dans cet appartement sont conformes à notre ressenti. Et quelle terrasse, quelle vue ! un véritable bol d'air !
Super moment, nous avons adoré! Cila est une personne très attentionnée!
Cila is a terrific host who will go out of her way to make your experience in her apartment and Lisbon as perfect as possible.Very quick to respond to e-mails,good with directions,and even calling taxis for you.Her apartment is cozy and has a wonderful terrace with great sea and city views all set in an authentic Portuguese neighborhood with few tourists.On the edge of the Alfama neighborhood,it is a 10 minute walk to the subway which effectively takes you all across the city with ease.A bus stop right near the apartment or a short taxi ride to the center of the city.Nearby are a number of small markets and several small restaurants,a large supermarket,and a great flea market twice a week.If you want to be away from the bustle and noise of the city in a quiet and safe setting this is a great option.
wonderful, charming place, perfect to explore this beautiful city.
One of the best host we had. I can highly recommend. Cila was very helpful and gave us very good informations about lissabon, where to go, where to eat ..., etc..
The apartement is like the desciption, better than this, very atmospheric with a great view over lissabon and the tejo.
When ever i will come back to lissabon, i would there once again.
Thank you very much Cila!!!
I spent one month in this wonderful and very cosy apartment where
everything you may need is provided
Its location is great, very close to the center and the main attractions with public transportation available at the feet of the building (Bus)
The view on the river is stunning and the terrace, bathed by the sun, allows you to relax, to sunbath or to take your meal in a very privileged and quiet environment.
But what makes this flat a jewel not to be missed is the warm welcome and care of Cila who is always helpful and available for you while being discret and respecting your privacy.
Cila, thank you so much for your help, advices and friendly care.
This stay in Lisbon has been very nice. Cila is a very nice host, very helpful and she was available during our stay for any help !
The flat is very cool with a nice view of the seaside from the terrasse and well equiped. It is not far from the city center : a day&night bus which is direct to the city center (15 minutes) is in the street. We really felt like home and enjoyed this trip in this nice city !
