Welcome to Avenida Apartment & Terrace, a charming, comfortable apartment with a 360º river and city view rooftop terrace. Strategically located at the centre of Lisbon's centre it's only a few steps from glamorous Avenida da Liberdade and walking distance from the city's most popular areas, like Baixa, Chiado, Bairro Alto, Príncipe Real, Castelo and Marquês de Pombal. The subway station “Avenida” is right around the corner, as are the main bus-lines and Rossio train station.
The apartment is set on a 1940's building, which was entirely rebuilt in 2005. It's the perfect choice for those who prefer staying in a quiet area, but still only a few meters away from this vibrant city's epicenter. It's completely furnitured, with abundant light and very good vibes. It has an exclusive access to a terrace, with a 360º river and city view, that features a wooden deck and outdoor shower. It's like your own private urban beach, where you can have an unforgettable breakfast while enjoying a bit of sunshine or a sunset drink looking at the river.
The neighbourhood, typically “lisboeta”, is very quiet and safe. In the next door gardens, sparrows and blackbirds sing all day. But if you wake-up thinking you're somewhere in the countryside, well think again, you're only 80 meters away from Lisbon's coolest Avenue, with its high-end stores, restaurants, antique shops, theaters and bars.

Interaction with guests
No door codes or keys at the corner restaurant. I believe that a personal welcome is the best way to introduce you to Lisbon. So, i will be welcoming you at the apartment and will be glad to answer all your questions and provide you with all the information that you need for a perfect stay.
If i'm out of town or working at the time you arrive, someone of trust will do that for me. But i will be always available by phone/email or even in person, whenever you need.
Other things to note
Please note that the apartment is on a 3rd floor and the building has no lift. Also, the access to the terrace is made with a retractable ladder. I DO NOT recommend staying here if you have any mobility difficulties or don't want to face the stairs.

Make sure you always turn off the the air conditioner and/or the room heater before you leave the apartment for your daily tours. It's an absurd energy and money waste. It will cool down or get warm really fast once you return and turn it on again.
When entering or leaving the building shut the door gently. Your neighbors will thank you.
Please don't smoke inside the apartment. If you really, really need to smoke do it by the window or on the terrace. Never, but never throw cigarette butts trough the window.
Use the terrace wisely. Avoid any behaviour that can put you at risk. Beware of any objects left on the wall, such as bottles or glasses. Remember they can be blown away by accident or by the wind, seriously injuring someone down on the street. For the same reason, please put the chairs, parasol and cushions back in the box after using.
Loosing the key implies the payment of 20€.
Check in and check out are flexible, according to your and previous/next guests convenience. After your reservation is confirmed, please provide me with your flight numbers and estimated arrival/departure times.
I was born and raised in good old Lisbon.
Father of a young kid and advertising creative at JWT Lisbon, love surfing, wine,football, food and writing. Even published a book about Lisbon's "tascas" (the old and popular traditional restaurants). Also teach Creativity in a local University.
Every saved penny is invested on travelling. The chronicles i wrote on some of this trips were published in portuguese magazines, newspapers and websites.
Some unforgettable trips? Driving through the winemaking towns of the argentinian Andes, two weeks camping on the Libyan Saahara, the fascinating Iran, a three week boat surftrip in the Mentawaii islands and - last but not least - driving a truck from Lisbon to Guinea-Bissau (Western Africa).
Travelling so much, i know exactly the importance of feeling safe and comfortable when we're away from home. More then the sites i visited, i will always remember the people i met and how they were kind enough to introduce me to their countries and cultures.
It's my obligation to return all this.
Welcome to Lisbon and Portugal, and enjoy my apartment where i'm sure you'll feel at home!
