AIRBNB Photo Verified!
Experience the special light in Lisbon by staying high in the sky in noble 'Principe Real', one of Lisbon's finest neighborhoods. You will literally have the city at your feet with a view to the Tejo (river Tagus) to kill for. In all, the Lisbon Sky Loft has 7 windows with 7 different views. Mind you, to have this view, you have to walk up 4 floors.
The sunny, fully decorated loft has everything you need to make it your home away from home: air-conditioning/heating, a mobile phone, a fully equipped kitchen etc.**
The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed (1.60 x 2.00) and a walk-in closet en suite. The 2nd bedroom has 2 single bed that can be converted into a king-sized bed (1.80 x 2.00).
For your convenience there is a both a fully equipped bathroom and a 'social toilet' as we say in Portugal, so no queues ;)
Every Saturday there is a farmers' market in nearby Principe Real square where you can shop for organic food, while the neighbourhood is dotted with traditional green grocers, pastry shops and small supermarkets for your daily needs.
From fancy dining to fashionable clothes, from imaginative haircuts to handmade soap, Principe Real has it all. Even the beach is only a short train or ferry/bus ride away, as you are near all modes of public transport (metro (8 mins blue and green lines and 9 mins yellow line), tram (tram 28, 4 mins), bus (neighbourhood bus 2 mins, city network buses 5 mins), train and ferry (Cais de Sodré, 10 minutes). The taxi stand is a 5 minute walk, or you can stop a taxi in the street.
There are many galleries, museums, and 'miradouros' (= picturesque viewpoints) around. For example there is the miradouro the São Pedro de Alcântara up the road (7 minute walk) and the Adamastor with the Noobai café down the road, a 7 minute walk away.
Upon arrival you will find the kitchen stocked with coffee, tea, drinks, cheese, butter, bread, fruit etc. for your first breakfast.
For a longer stay, the rate is different. A cleaning service can be arranged.
If you wish to stay for less than 5 nights, we can discuss it.
The main thing is that we do our utmost for you to have a memorable stay in Lisbon!

Interaction with Guests
Upon arrival I show the guests around the loft and tell them the ins and outs. If so desired, I give them tips where to procure food locally and what are great places for having a drink, strolling, and eating.
I live around the corner and love my neighbourhood because it has a lot of quaint little corners to be discovered, many shops and is well endowed in the public transport department.
Most of all: many things are at walking distance.
If a guest comes by car, there is a public parking around the corner for the reasonable fee of €12.40 per 24 hours.
Guests are expected to treat the loft as if it were their own.
No smoking is allowed inside the loft.
We just hope you will truly and fully enjoy your stay.
Lisbon was great but what made our visit even better was this wonderful loft and amazing hosts. Yve welcomed us with a smile when we arrived, showed us the apartment and neighborhood and made the first evening unforgettable. yve had also arranged a simple yet sophisticated breakfast for the first morning. The loft is designed in good taste and has the most amazing view. Its fully equipped and it has everything u need, especially if u like to cook. The neighborhood is lively and full of bars and restaurants but the apartment is quiet and relaxed. Yve and Mario are warm, open minded and educated couple and we feel happy to have had the opportunity to get to know them. B&E
We had a fantastic stay at Yve's apartment. It had everything we needed (including beach towels), was very clean and the view is unbeatable! And kudos to Yve as well, who was a great host and always easy to reach. Highly recommended!
Place came as pictured. One of the best stays I've had. Host was excellent with communication. Apartment was overstocked with everything you could ever need. The apartment was incredibly clean, well furnished, and comfortable.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Lisbonne dans l'appartement d'(website hidden) est tout simplement parfait car très bien équipé:on s y sent vite comme chez soi.Yve est très disponible en cas de besoin et est très accueillante.L'appartement est situé dans un calme à proximité de tout.Nous y retournerons certainement .
Great host, we were greeted on arrival by Ives, the owner. She was already in the apartment waiting for us. She gave us a full tour of the facilities including instructions on how to operate the appliances and instructions on how to use the internet. The apartment is a dream. It feels like your home away from your real home It has two bedrooms with the capacity to fit one to 5 people. It has a fully equipped kitchen including a dishwasher and it has a washer machine. It is located in a quiet street between Barrio Alto and Principe Real. We walked every where. The views from the apartment are amazing from the 4th floor. We will stay there again next time we visit Lisbon. Alex
I totally fell in love with the appartment! It's situated in a perfect location (very near to lively Bairro Alto, where you have all the nice bars and arty stuff) but is in a very quiet and nice living area. Everything is in walking disance. You have a very nice view, since it is the highest building in this area. Go there and you won't regret. Plus: yve is a very warm hearted and open minded host. She will answer all your questions and give you good tips for daytrips.
We had a great stay at yve's wonderful loft for almost 1 week. The apartment looks exactly the same as on the pics. We really liked all the nice details in this fully equiped apartment - but the best thing is the amazing view over the trejo. It was overwhelming. For anybody who want to vsisit lisbon i can recommend 100% this loft.
Yve as the host was very polite, helpful and willing to show us some of the nicest insider hot spots in lisbon. We really preciaded that. Thanks for this nice time - see you soon
