The space

Welcome to Lisbon!
Located in Santa Catarina, in Lisbon's historic center, this charming and comfortable apartment in a building of the eighteenth century, is located by the known Chiado and Bairro Alto neighborhoods.
The perfect location to experience the city.


The APARTMENT
This old house was recently renovated and decorated preserving the original plan.The high ceilings and the eighteenth century Portuguese tiles are seamlessly combined with modern and very comfortable decor. Two large windows in the living room (from where you can see the river) let in the famous Lisbon light.

The apartment comprises a bright living room, a double room, a kitchen and a small bathroom.
The kitchen is fully equipped including washing machine, microwave, coffee maker and kettle.
Bathroom is a small but a functional one, with shower (not bath tube).
The living room is equipped with a double sofa bed that fits extra 2 persons.
Still for top comfort, the house is best fitted for up to 3 adults or a couple with 2 children.

The apartment is on the 3rd floor of an antique (and restored) traditional building in the historic center. As most buildings in the historic center, this one has no lift and therefore is not suitable for guests with mobility problems.
This eighteenth century building was completely renovated in 2007 and awarded a prize for its historic facade.


THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOOD
The apartment is 2 minutes walking from Bairro Alto and 5 minutes walking from Chiado.
The Bairro Alto is a picturesque old quarter and well known for its nightlife and unavoidable trendy and vintage shops.
Chiado is one of the most emblematic and traditional neighborhoods of Lisbon.

In this area you can find almost everything, any time of the day: be it a lazy brunch, great cheep restaurants, fado houses, grocery stores, supermarkets, art galleries, bookstores, theatre, trendy shops and with modern design souvenir shops to bring your friends and family.
Not to miss: the apartment is just 2 minutes walking from the Adamastor terrace, which is a privileged place to see the sunset and the river Tagus.


ACCESS
The apartment location is excellent:
. the famous tram No. 28 is almost at the doorstep; the tram stop is just 3 minutes walk. Tram 28 goes through most of the major tourist sites: Graça, Alfama, Baixa, São Jorge Castle ...,.
. 5 minutes walk from the subway;
. 10/15 minutes walk to the train station bound for the beach / Cascais or Belém;
. 15/20 minute walk to the train station bound for Sintra - this fairy tail village is UNESCO World Heritage Site;

Basically, this is a very central area with easy access to various transportation networks, either walking or by tram. Best of all, in a very quiet street where you can relax to the sound of birds.
And if you are a walker, you can leave home and easily discover Lisbon walking to some of the best tourist spots (Principe Real – 10/15 minutes, Rossio – 10/15 minutes, Baixa Pombalina – 10/15 minutes, Saint Jorge Castle – around 30 minutes, Alfama – around 30 minutes,..). No need to take the Tram nº 28.

Alexandre's place was perfect for our trip to Lisbon. The place was exactly as advertised, and was in an incredible location, close to many great restaurants and some very cool hangouts. I would highly recommend Alexandre's place to anyone staying in Lisbon, and I would absolutely stay there again.

Lovely appartement located in the heart of the city life! Very easy and quick walk to Bairro Alto, Bica and Chiado areas (for sardines and beers at night), wonderful view at the end of the street. Appart design and well equiped (just think to take shower bath and shampoo). Carolina was very easy to reach, wait us to meet in the apartment in our arrival and gave us a lot of useful tips! Strongly recommended.

Alex and Carolina, were super friendly and made our stay as easy as possible. They have great local suggestions and were easy to get hold of if we needed anything. The apartment is gorgeous! And we loved the local bread and cheese Carolina left for us, delicious! Didn't want to leave!

A perfect stay in Lisbon! We loved being so central yet just out of the way, tucked on a lovely street. The apartment is comfortable and well decorated. Alex and Carolina are great hosts--communicative and so hospitable. They provided helpful info as we we were arriving by train and checked in with us during our stay. Highly recommend!

A fantastic three day trip to Lisbon in May 2017. The location of the flat is fantastic and meant we walked everywhere. Alex and Carolina are brilliant hosts and made our trip a breeze. We even had birthday surprises on arrival! It is a lovely quiet area of a bustling part of Lisbon so is unique in its centrality but residential feel. We loved the location of the city centre and restaurants, the flat is a perfect size for two people. Thank you guys!

I´m a photographer based in Lisbon. Most of my work is on Travel and Interiors.
For three years I was writing about Lisbon for an online travel magazine (Planet Eye), sharing the best places on my city. Now I get to share directly to my guests...
I believe Lisbon is one of the best cities to live in. Lisbon is splendorous... We have a long history that greatly enriched our culture. We have great beaches in and around Lisbon. We also have Sintra and so much more.
Besides all that, I love living just outside Lisbon, by the sea.
