Welcome to the Turquoise House, a 2014 TripAdvisor WINNER. This apartment in the centre of Lisbon offers a luxurious and authentic retreat, and our guests say this apartment offers great value for such comfortable and spacious accommodation.

The Space

If you're looking for a luxurious and central base from which to explore Lisbon's many delights, this charming and comfortable 3 bedroom apartment can't be beaten.

Located in one of Lisbon's oldest barrios, the Graça district, this spacious holiday apartment has generously-sized rooms, elegant period details, high ceilings and plenty of light.
The apartment can sleep up to 6 people very comfortably and is the ideal holiday rental for a family or group of friends travelling together. It also enjoys a great central location, giving you easy to access to Lisbon's transport network and main tourist attractions (more details below!), as well as offering free wifi and a full range of local services on your doorstep.

The self-catering apartment boasts:

•Master bedroom (25sqm) with double bed, air conditioning, TV and balcony
•Second double room (20sqm), TV, air conditioning
•Additional lounge (18sqm) with air conditioning which can be used as a third double room thanks to its comfortable double sofa bed
•Wifi throughout the holiday apartment - provided free of charge
•Great communal space(35sqm) - easily big enough for 6: including TV room/ lounge and dining room
•A well-equipped kitchen, which has everything you might need: small breakfast bar, fridge, freezer, oven, stove, dishwasher, washing machine, crockery and cutlery.
•Conservatory/ enclosed balcony area. It has a small table with a couple of chairs where our guests seem to gravitate to: it is a great place to sit and enjoy a drink.
•The apartment also has a small outdoor terrace with portable barbeque and table and chairs. Ideal for grilling a couple of sardines or simply chilling out.

This space and comfort gives the holiday let the feel of a luxury hotel while providing all the benefits and amenities of self-catering accommodation.

The apartment is professionally cleaned using non-toxic eco-friendly products. Linens and towels are provided. There is an optional supplementary linen charge of €50 for stays longer than a week.

Our comfortable apartment is a great place to stay if you fancy a Lisbon city break , but you are also close to great beaches and some of Portugal's most picturesque locations if you are willing to travel a little further afield.

Please ask if you want further information about any facilities or travel arrangements - we are happy to offer advice.

The Neighborhood

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.

  • 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 !

  • It was a pleasure to stay at the Turquoise House. The appartment is just as pictured, very well equipped and beautiful & we three loved the terrace - a real pleasure in the morning, during daytime & at night. the appartment is also perfectly located - very close to a lot of main attractions of beautiful Lisboa - we had a lot of nice city walks with priceless impressions. Thank you Nuno & Tania for your prompt attention, kindness & hospitality. We were three persons & the appartment was just great as it provided a lot of space for each of us. We loved the stay & hope to be back as soon as possible since we are in love with beautiful Portugal & Lisboa. If you are looking for a unique, central but also quiet appartment with welcoming people this is the place to be!

  • Lovely base for our stay - 5 mins to a metro, tram 28 runs by very close, range of local shops nearby etc. Large apartment - comfortable for 4 people. Tania, our contact whilst in Lisbon, was very attentive - dropped off fresh linen, booked us taxis to airport and basically helped us when we needed it. Recommended and would stay again.

  • We stayed an Nuno's apartment four days. First of all - hospitality - despite Nuno currently lives in London we felt his care all the time (all those emails with questions "are you ok there, do you need something else" etc :)

    His partner hostess Tania was also very helpfull and responsive. Check in and check out was quite flexible. Also such simple things as welcome drink (botle of nice red wine) and snacks makes really good impression!

    Apartment itself is just fabulous! It's not an average apartment for rent. This is the real house with it's history - you can see it in every detail. Nuno has made all decorations himself and it looks just amazing! We are really impressed! Thank you for everithing, Nuno and Tania!

  • A very spacious old-style-Lisbon apartment with patio. Comfortable for 4 people at least. Excellent hosts that were waiting for us untill midnight. A welcoming bottle of fine wine. Everything was good. Recommended!
