The Graça district is full of local character and offers visitors an authentic flavour of the real Lisboa. You're never too far away from an authentic pasteleria (cake shop) or restaurante. It perches on the hillside to the northeast of the city, and offers some of the most panoramic views over Lisbon.
There are two main spots to take in the vista: Miradouro da Graça, and Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte, both within easy walking distance of the apartment. Miradouro da Graçais close to the thirteenth century Graça church, with a splendid terrace and open-air cafe which is open late into the evening in summer months. The Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte offers equally stunning views and is the highest point in the city.
Graça also plays home to one of the oldest flea markets in Lisbon, Feira da Ladra, which takes place every Tuesdays and Saturdays at campo Santa Clara, and is just a 10 minute walk from the holiday apartment.
The district is served by elétrico 28, a vintage yellow tram which is almost a tourist attraction in its own right!The tram #28 route takes in many of Lisbon's tourist sites and connects the apartment withSão Jorge castle, the Miradouro Portas do Sol and the Alfama, Mouraria, Bairro Alto districts.
• We'd like you to enjoy your stay and invite you treat our apartment as your home away from home. Equally, we ask you to treat the apartment with the respect you would show your own home.
• Keys to be picked up at the apartment, unless otherwise arranged.
• Please also be respectful of our neighbours and keep all noise to a minimum at night.

Estuvimos muy a gusto en la casa Turquesa. Preciosa y cómoda, con estancias amplias y mucha tranquilidad. Muy amables los anfitriones. Muchas gracias!
This apartment is exactly as they describe it! I went there together with 5 friends and the apartment was specious enough. We had everything we needed to have. The beautiful decoration and art make you really feel at home.
When we arrived, it was Tanias brother who welcomed us. He was very friendly and told us everything we needed to know. The last day of our trip, Tania came to meet us and ask whether we were happy with our stay. She's a very nice person.
The apartment is situated in a nice neighbourhood. It's not very touristic, so there isn't too much noise, and is near a metro station. It's easy to get to the centre of Lisbon. We also decided to take the metro from the airport to the apartment and it took us less than 30 min.
Thanks again to Tania and her brother for the lovely stay!
What a beautiful place! Apartment is beautiful and in very nice neighborhood. Tania was a wonderful host. I am highly recommending this place.
a great place for exploring Lisbon. The apartment is roomy and comfortable and well-located, just outside the touristy parts. Tania, our host, was very friendly and communcative. A certain recommendation.
Dear Casper -
thank you so much for your kind words and for saying that staying at the Turquoise House is "a certain recommendation". The privileged location "just outside of the touristy parts", yet walking distance, gives the quietness and authentic flavor to our guest's experience and we're happy that you've experienced that.
We look forward to having you anytime soon.

Dear Natasha -
so many thanks for your excellent review and we're truly happy you've made the most out of your stay at the Turquoise House in Lisbon.
The Turquoise House is a very special apartment, with very special quests and I do hope that when you next visit Lisbon you will visit us once again.
Accoglienza meravigliosa in una casa speciale specchio di una città variopinta e bellissima come Lisbona. Tutto è stato, se possibile, addirittura più bello di quanto avevamo immaginato dalle foto quando abbiamo scelto di soggiornare presso questa casa. Tania, la nostra ospite, si è presa cura di noi con cura ed affetto accogliendoci puntuale al nostro arrivo e salutandoci sorridente alla nostra partenza. La casa è davvero incredibile, calda ed accogliente, ti fa sentire a tuo agio e, perché no, addirittura un po' Portoghese. Tutto funziona ed è al posto giusto. Il quartiere poi è caratteristico e davvero comodo al centro ed ai servizi, dai mezzi di trasporto ai supermercati. Impossibile davvero chiedere di più. Grazie Nuno e Tania per averci fatto sentire a casa nostra.
Carissima Julia -
Con molto molto piacere abbiamo letto la tua bellissima recensione e te ne siamo davvero grati! Abbiamo un bellissimo ricordo di voi e sopratutto del vostro piccolino Angelo (che salutiamo tanto!!)
Grazie mille per tutto, vi aspettiamo di nuovo!! Sarà il caso di organizzare per il prossimo anno, vero??
Un caro saluto a tutta la famiglia!
Quel séjour !!!! Tout d'abord, MERCI à Tania pour son chaleureux accueil !! Disponible et sympathique, elle a été très agréable!
Comble de bonheur de trouver à l'identique que présenté sur les photos du site un appartement spacieux, agréable et chaleureux !
De plus, même si nous ne sommes restés que 3 jours, nous avons été surpris de trouver tout ce qu'il fallait pour se préparer un petit plat : barbecue, huile, vinaigre, café, sel, poivre et j'en passe ... probablement laissé par d'anciens locataires !
Aucune hésitations à avoir !!! Vous pouvez le louer les yeux fermés !!!
Merci beaucoup Nuno pour ce chaleureux endroit !!
A très bientôt j'espère !!
Virginie et ses amis !
