The Space

A nice and contemporary 2-bedroom apartment (duplex) in the heart of Lisbon, located in a quiet area of Bairro Alto, away from the noise. We are convinced that for someone that is visiting Lisbon, Bairro Alto (a quiet location like ours) & Chiado are the best locations to stay at.

Bairro Alto is a historic district (one of the oldest ones, from around the 16th century) right in the center of Lisbon. It is the heart of Lisbon's youth culture and nightlife, where you can find over 100 restaurants and bars, and trendy shops. Dozens of Fado (the traditional portuguese type of music) singing clubs animate the area. During the daytime, Bairro Alto is a traditional district where older people shop for groceries, and the younger generations visit art galleries like Zé dos Bois, bookshops like Ler Devagar or arty gift shops like Hold Me.

The apartment is in a walking distance of most attractions (see photos) and it is close to public transportation (subway, tram, bus, Ferry, and train to Sintra and Cascais/Beach). You can walk to Chiado, Baixa and Principe Real (adjacent districts) where a lot of attractions are located. The apartment has air conditioning in the living room and in the master bedroom and 2 heaters. Satellite TV and Internet are provided. A crib/baby bed can be provided upon request.

Note: Ladies, leave your stilettos at home and pack your walking shoes because this beautiful historic area is paved with cobblestones, that wind up and down Lisbon's seven hills. It's an enchanting city to explore by foot.

* HOW TO GET TO THE APARTMENT:
Lisbon airport is just 15 minutes away. A taxi from the airport should cost no more than 15 euros. If you want a hassle-free experience or if there are four of you, I would recommend a transfer service that has a fixed cost of 30EUR for all passengers plus luggage. The driver will be waiting for you holding a sign with your name and will drop you off right in front of the apartment. For more information, please contact us.

If you arrive during business hours and you don't plan going directly to the apartment please let me know so ahead of time, so that we can schedule a checkin time. Please let us know ahead of time how you're planing going to the apartment and SMS/text me once you leave the airport. Thank you.

* ACCESSIBILITY:
The apartment is on the 2nd floor located in an old traditional area of central Lisbon, where the buildings don't have elevators and therefore is not suitable for wheelchair users or guests with mobility problems.

  • This is a gorgeous apartment. Fling open the balcony windows for a spectacular vista of the Basillica as well as a private outlook on Lisbon's best cultural and bohemian locale, Barro Alto with its blend of ageing taverns, designer bars, fado houses and restaurants. The cats on the opposite roof were our particular favourites and we loved watching the daily lives of our neighbours too. Nuno himself meets you and has a specially prepared and truly useful personal guide to his beloved city. Its surprisingly peaceful too, as it is tucked in a little residential corner but the metro, tram 28, serious wine tasting and a plethora of joyous life is just around that corner. Totally safe and friendly - we came with our kids - it is a fantastic place; though maybe not for those with big feet or a fear of steep staircases.

  • AS LONG AS YOU ARE WILLING TO CLIMB THREE STEEP FLIGHTS OF STAIRS TO THE MASTER BEDROOM, this unit is perfect and Nuno is a very personable host. The location is the historic city works well, the apartment is fully stocked , and there are wonderful places nearby to eat. Our last night we splurged and went to Machado Fodo; perfect.! We bought seafood to cook in the apartment from the store attached to SeeMe; perfect as was the night we had their seafood risotto.

  • We had a great stay in Lissabon. The appartment lays very beautiful in the old town and is a good place to start a good Lissabon discovery.
    The appartment was very nice and a pleasure to come home to after a good walk.
    I could easily and pleasantly recommend the appartment and Nuno as host.
    And getting from and to the airport was a breeze with the pick up service that Nuno arranged and the helpful and punctual cab driver.

    thx for sharing your appartment

  • Nuno´s place in Bairro Alto was just perfect for our 6 days stay in Lisbon. We mainly went out of town during the day for golf but the traffic was never a problem. The evenings in Bairro Alto is very vibrant. Very cool bar culture and good restaurants just up the street from the appartment. The appartment is fully equipped for most needs and provided a very good platform for our stay. I will recommend the place.

  • We spent 4 nights in Nuno's lovely apartment. The apartment is great, looks exactly as it does in the pictures. The location was perfect, on a quiet street in a really central location. Note that the stairs up to and in the apartment are quite steep so may not be suitable for everyone.
    Nuno organised a driver to meet us at the airport which worked out really well. Nuno met us at the apartment and gave us some great advice for our stay. He was very helpful, responded to text messages straight away and booked taxis to take us back to the airport.
    I would definitely recommend staying in this apartment.

  • Hemos estado en el apartamento y nuestra estadía ha sido súper espectacular.
    El lugar está muy cómodo , tiene todo lo que puedas necesitar tanto histórico como para tus necesidades alimentarias es decir restaurantes, minimarket, panaderías y cuestiones .
    Con respecto a la visita de la ciudad el bus turístico pasa a 3cuadras y la estación Rossio está a unos 10 minutos andando.
    Las fotografías le hacen honor al apartamento.Impecable.

  • From January 15th to 20th 2014 I stayed with a friend in Nunos Apartment: Perfect location to explore Lisboa. Great apartment, nice furniture and perfect equipment for a relaxed visit in this town.
    The shower bathroom could not be better. Everything was perfect. From the very first contact - Nuno answerd faster as I can write back ;-) - up to our arrival: Perfect, perfect, perfect....
    You get what you see on the pictures. Bairro Alto in my eyes is the best area in Lissabon to stay. Perfect connection to the tram and Metro. Just a few meters to walk. To reach the apartment from the airport via Metro is very, very easy. You have a supermarket just arround the corner. A lot of restaurants in Bairro Alto. I highly recommend Nuno and his apartment. Was a nice experience. Thanks Nuno!
