This is a modern and cozy apartment, full of character and light, set on the first floor (Drto) of an ancient typical Lisbon building in the trendy and vibrant Bairro Alto, known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center. This apartment is part of a group of 7 apartments that we have in this building.
The apartment has one bedroom with a double bed, and a double sofa bed in the living room, a nice bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, ready to cook home made meals. Towels and linens at your disposal are included in the price and satelite Tv and wireless internet as well.
To set forth on a discovery of Lisbon, there is no better place to begin: the tram a few steps away, international brand shops at Chiado and the more daring fashions in Bairro Alto, where you also have the trendiest restaurants of Lisbon. Bica neighbourhood, close by, is becoming a night haven for artists and intellectuals. But this does not destroy the calm and charm of Rua das Chagas. For theatre and opera lovers there are three theatre houses at a five minute distance, S. Carlos, S. Luiz and Trindade Theatres.
Chiado is where Lisbon's history and urbanity meet. This tourist area of the capital begins at the Brasileira café, on Rua Garrett. Opened in 1905. It´s one of Lisbon's postcards. On the side walk café you will find the different urban tribes and a statue of poet Fernando Pessoa, who offers his lap for tourist photos.
Next to it, two churches remind the vanished towers of Santa Catarina Gate. The Church of Loreto, built in 1528 by Italians living in Lisbon, was partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, but later rebuilt and one of the places to visit on Chiado. The Church of Encarnação, inaugurated in 1708, was also hit in 1755 and rebuilt later. But Chiado has more than just two churches to see.
Luís de Camões square, which any Lisboner will call Largo Camões, is not just a passing place. Sit on the steps of the poet's monument and enjoy the bustle that Chiado has.
But do not leave Chiado without inquiring about the theatres. São Luiz Municipal Theatre was one of Lisbon's first cinemas. Today it is a municipal theatre with a rich and varied programming. Also glimpse the Teatro Trindade and the S. Carlos Opera House.
This is one of the city´s best shopping areas. You will find international brand shops (Hermès and Hugo Boss, for example) and great Portuguese designers like José António Tenente (Tv. Carmo, 8) StoryTailors (Cç. Do Ferragial, 8) or Atelier Alves/Gonçalves (Tv. Guilherme Cossul, 16).
It is not difficult to come across public figures, mainly artists. There are several art schools in the area, like the Fine Arts Faculty. Even if you are not an expert, venture into the Chiado Museum - National Museum of Contemporary Art (Rua Serpa Pinto, 4) besides well-cared exhibitions, it has a pleasant patio to have lunch or simply sip a coffee. There is also a big offer for meals: Café Royale, New Wok and Kaffee Hause are excellent choices.
Walk the streets with care, the movement on the sidewalks is always heavy and the trams are constantly passing.
You are in Lisbon. And Lisbon never stops
Ana was very nice and all communication was fast and efficient. The location is great if you like being in the middle of all the bars and restaurants and the apartment had everything that we needed.
Acceuilli par Ana à l'heure convenue et les explications pour rejoindre l'appart étaient parfaites. L'appartement est très spacieux et idéalement placés ans une ruelle au calme dans le quartier de bairro alto qui lui est très animé le soir.
Vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés.
Margarida´s flat was really nice and cozy. Functional and clean. Very well situated in the Bairro Alto.
The neighbourhood is very animated and has plenty of bars and restaurants. It is indeed the place to be in Lisbon. Of course, you must know that on weekends nightlife lasts until very late, so if your are planning on having a deep sleep forget this neighbourhood !
We spent a really nice time in Lisbon (despite the rainy days ..!! ) can´t wait to return !
L'appartement est idéal pour un petit week end et trés bien équipé (exemple : séche cheveux, fer à repasser,...). Propre et fonctionnel.
Bien que nous soyons arrivé un peu tard notre hôte nous attendait et à quand même pris le temps de nous donner quelques explications sur le quartier et les visites à faire, c'était vraiement trés sympa. Nous n'avons eu aucun probléme pour la joindre aussi bien pour l'organisation du voyage que lors de notre arrivée.
L'emplacement est idéale pour visiter Lisbonne à côté du tram 28, de la gare pour prendre le tram direction Belem,... c'est parfait.
Il est également situé dans un quartier trés animé le soir, nous étions proche des bars et des restaurants pour rentrer le soir aprés c'est bien appréciable. Le revers est donc que le voisinage peut être parfois bruyant la nuit mais on ne peut pas tout avoir.
Si nous devions retourner à Lisbonne je relouerais sans hésiter cet appartement que je conseille fortement.
Alles genau so wie angegeben. Einfach, sauber, sehr hell und freundlich. Für zwei Personen die richtige Größe. Super zentrale Lage und trotzdem auch am WE (bei geschlossenen Fenstern) keine Probleme zum Schlafen. Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis.
- Everything as described. Simple, clean, bright and friendly apt. Right size for 2 persons. Very central and still no problems with noises on the weekend (with closed windows). highly recommended! very warm welcome and caring - especially given the fact that we arrived very delayed! Thanks a lot Ana!
The apartment is very very nice!!! I loved to stay there, we were two people and it was the perfect apartment for a weekend together! So, central, clean and very new. Also, it was really easy to communicate and I could leave my baggage longer without any problem. Thank you so much! :)
Absolutely lovely apartment!! Exactly as on the pictures. When we arrived Ana was there to show us the apartment and gave us the key. The location is perfect and in a lovely neighborhood (in the evening party area, but quiet enough to have a good night sleep!). It was the first time in Lisboa and I highly recommend the apartment! Perfect place to stay! We really enjoyed it!
A beautiful apartment in a fantastic, central location on the crest of Barrio Alto. Very clean too. The entire process from booking to arrival was smooth. Sara also gave us some A+ food and drink recommendations. It was a true pleasure to explore Lisbon from here.
We had a very nice in Lisboa last week end, the flat was great and really clean, the area surrounding the flat was perfect to go out and enjoy the restaurants and bars of the city
Thanks also for letting us stay after the check out time
Nous avons passé une très belle semaine. L'appartement est très bien situé pour découvrir la ville. Il est très confortable et joli. La chambre est ample. Tout s'est déroulé simplement, sans encombres du début jusqu'à la fin. Parfait pour un couple.
