The Space


Welcome to Avenida Apartment & Terrace, a charming, confortable 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 street, 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 busiest Avenue, with its high-end stores, restaurants, antique shops, theaters and bars.

  • Tiago was away when we visited so he organised for a friend of his to welcome us. It was in a lovely neighbourhood, about a 20 minute walk from the sea and many popular Lisbon attractions. The apartment was delightful, with everything we needed, as well as a beautiful sunny terrace where we had drinks in the early evening watching the view over Lisbon in the sun.

  • Tiago's apartment is absolutely lovely. We didn't have the chance to meet Tiago as he was on vacation, but his communication before our arrival was perfect and his friend, Sonia, was very very sweet and talked us through everything when we arrived. We had a wonderful stay... the only complaint being that we wished we were there for longer than three days :)

    If you are looking for a perfect vacation apartment in Lisbon, look no further!

  • Merci à Tiago et à Sonia pour le gentil accueil et les conseils avisés. L'appartement est super bien situé et il est très agréable de s'y reposer entre deux visites. Les pièces sont baignées de lumière durant la journée et tout est prévu pour que l'on s'y sente comme chez soi.

  • Ce bel appartement répondait parfaitement à mes attentes. Il est très lumineux, spacieux et calme, on s'y sent vraiment comme chez soi. La terrasse est vraiment agréable, c'est sans doute le principal atout de cet appartement ! Je remercie Tiago pour ses conseils précieux et sa disponibilité.

  • Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour à Lisbonne dans cet appartement lumineux et très agréable! Bien placé, il permet de visiter la ville et ses collines à pied. La terrasse offre une vue panoramique incroyable sur les toits et les ruelles escarpées. Sonia, l'amie de Tiago, nous a accueillis avec beaucoup de gentillesse et nous recommandons vivement cette location pour un voyage romantique à Lisbonne.

    We highly recommend this place !

  • Thank you for this great apartment for our much needed holiday! The location was perfect and we picked out a little route into the Barrio Alto without too many steps! The terrace was fantastic for having a few beers in the evening and taking in the incredible views down the river. The welcome by Sonia was great and we will be recommending the apartment to friends and hope to return ourselves. Lisbon is such a great city!

  • Tiago and his mother were very helpful during our trip to Lisbon, stocking the apartment with essentials, and offering advice on where to go when asked. The apartment was wonderful- an evening dinner on the balcony makes a great alternative to an expensive night out. This place is probably best suited to young couples. The area was very useful for access to the city centre, and was close to a metro station, allowing easy access to the city. The streets surrounding the apartment were quiet and dark at night, so made us a little apprehensive on the first night, but we never saw any sign of trouble.

Copywriter at JWT
I was born and raised in good old Lisbon. Advertising creative at JWT Lisbon, love surfing, yoga, wines (yes, i know this last two don't match, but...) food and writing. 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? My own "Sideways", 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 Mentawais 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 being safe, confortable and feeling welcome 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!
