About this listing
My apartment is well laid out and well appointed. Located an easy walk to the Restaurants, Bars, Shops, Markets and the Beach in Setúbal.
Relax on my balcony and take in the activities of the interesting city of Setúbal. Cook Sardines or "Porco Preto" on the built in BBQ. Check out my herb garden and flowers. All this on the 7th ( top ) floor.
The Apartment faces south and looks out over the Arrabida National park to the right, the city of Setúbal to the left, out over the harbour and estuary to the Troia Peninsular with its sandy beaches.
Setúbal is a working city with very few tourists. The Old Town with pavement restaurants is close leading to the Avenida Luisa Tody, the very large covered market, the fishing port and the small lanes of downtown shops. Further on the horizon are the power station, paper mill & shipyards. There are regular festivities in the city square, cafes, bars, restaurants and nightclubs. The nearest beach is a 15 minute walk. There are many other beaches and rocky coves all along the Arrabida National park and across the harbour on the Troia Peninsula, my favourite destination being Portinho.
The apartment has 2 bedrooms on the north side with views across the rooftops to the hills beyond, A bathroom with bath, separate shower, basin, toilet & bidet. The dining room / sitting room has a large balcony and faces south with long views across the city, Sado Estuary ( pronounced Saadoo ), Troia Peninsular and the Arrabida hills. The kitchen has all modern conveniences and equally good views. There is an entrance hall with a coat and shoe cupboard and a large store cupboard.
Local shops are within easy walking distance including a very good "Fruiteria" which also has most other things for a good meal aswell.
A 15 minute walk down the hill takes you to the Old Town with small shops, bars and restaurants. A little further on the "Luisa Todi" are some more sophisticated restaurants including my favourites...
Champanheria... A Brazilian tapas and gourmet restaurant.
Baluartes... A good fish restaurant with many other traditional dishes.
Duartes dos Frango... a very good value primarily chicken restaurant, but good lamb & fish too.
The fishing harbour is not far from here and the area is full of nightclubs after dark.
More to come with my next edit... Rory
