The Space

A cozy and fully equipped 3 pieces flat in Lapa district, a quite and peaceful residential area just out of the touristic areas as Bairro Alto, Chiado, Santos and Madragoa (Popular fado district) but in a walking distance to all of them.

Near Estrela Basilica and Garden, it is ideally placed to get to the most typical tramways - the 28 - that takes you around the city and directly to Bairro Alto, Chiado, Baixa, Castle, Graça, Alfama.

Estrela Garden is a very nice place to relax, walking, eating near the small lake or to go to the playground with the children. If you'll be there in summer, it's even nicer.

The apartment is fully equipped flat with all you need for a perfect and truly Portuguese experience. You have washing and laundry machine, microwave, books, music, films, internet, cable TV and touristic guides to help you to have a fantastic time in Lisbon.

Lapa is a traditional residential and posh district up the hill where you have nice views over the Tagus river. You have some very nice hidden spots such as the restaurant/bar Clube dos Jornalistas, traditional grosserie Mimosa da Lapa, Fado restaurants Guarda-Mor and Sr. Vinho, Ancient Art Museum, Bar le Chat, etc

As far as public transportation goes, the Tram 28 goes straight to the more touristy central areas, and it runs on the Calçada da Estrela. It passes by very frequently, around every ten minutes.

The closest metro stop is Rato, and it's around 10 minutes far. There are many buses running on Av. Infante Santo and Av. Alvares Cabral, which would get you out to Belem, to the new Museum of the Oriente, to Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, CCB, Pastéis de Belém, Torre de Belém , etc

  • Had a great stay in Lapa. Lisbon is a great city! The apartment is beautiful, everything you could need. The chicken shop across the road is awesome and there is a great bakery/cafe underneath the apartment. Lapa is a little bit of a walk out of the city centre but we loved it because it meant that it was quiet and residential instead of touristy.

  • Thanks a lot Catarina! It was fun to stay at your lovely appartment! Everything worked well and we didnt even have to change a fuse. The neighborhood was nice and not too noisy for family holiday. The Cafe downstairs (and 10m left) was good and so friendly and The Park Estrella had a good playground to hang around.

    The appartment had good facilitys: Well working kitchen with new oven/stove for us modern day kids who don't know how to use gas ones, Enough warm water even to take a bath, not too soft bed and working internet. The appartment was on the second floor so there was not that much to klimb to. We recommend this appartment to everyone.

  • Catarina is very pleasant person and helpful. We like Catarina's cozy apartment. It is very nice, comfortable, light and clean. Everything we need was there. There is a supermarket not far from her house. Every morning near her house old man sold fresh fruits by low price :) there are several really good restaurants in the area: for example 'Clube de jornalistas'. Also it was important for us-high speed wifi. So we recommend Catarina's apartment for staying in Lisbon!

  • Buenas viajeros! Para los que queráis descubrir Lisboa el apartamento de Catarina es un sitio estupendo! Estuvimos dos amigos y yo cómodamente instalados durante cinco días y nos sentimos como en nuestra casa desde el primer momento. Es muy acogedor y confortable! La luz es sensacional, las camas cómodas y amplias... El barrio también nos gustó mucho por la tranquilidad, y el transporte para ir al centro está muy cerca. Gracias Catarina por esta bonita experiencia!

  • Super-nice, clean and cozy place was the best opportunity to spend a week in Lisbon. Many thanks for a amazing time, wonderful hospitality, flexible check-in and a special one for the help with forgotten staff. It was the best experience. Hope to see you again!

  • Surprisingly comfortable, beautiful and authentically designed apartment. Catarina is interior designer and this is visible in every corner of the flat. Btw, this is the flat Catarina is normally living in. She waited for us with the keys although we came around midnight. We had a friendly coffee, the day after, where we found out a lot about Lisbon and moving around.

    Lapa is a nice district, around 15 min walking to Lisbon downtown Baixa Ciudad. The flat has a nice stereo (Dolby :-)) which can help you relax after a long sightseeing walk. There is a free parking in the whole neighborhood.

    We would definitely recommend this flat, and will book it next time we visit Lisbon.

  • Staying at Catarina's place a wonderful experience. We stayed there for 5 nights and had all the comforts of a home; everything one could ever need. The neighborhood is great too, very quite and well connected with other parts of the city.
    Above all, Catarina was very very nice, helpful and she made us feel welcomed. I strongly recommend this apartment for anyone who is looking for a great, clean, comfortable place to stay in.If up to me,i would definitely book again,when i return to Lisbon!

    PS: We loved the music and the modest surround sound system, which were the perfect way to relax after ,all day long city tours.

    Hello Denis,

    It was a real pleasure to welcome you my home!
    You were the first people from Albania I've met and I am very well impressed by the way you've treated my apartment.
    Everything was in perfect conditions.
    Thanks for everything and come back whenever you want.

I'm a traveller lover and curious about other cultures and ways of living. I use to work on advertising and branding and a few years ago I just decided to build my own brand in the home staging business. I'm now transforming houses in loving homes to make people feel more comfortable and happy at home. My business partners and me have refurbished and redesigned several holiday houses for private clients and we’re now taking care and run different nice houses in a few places around Portugal – Lisbon, Ericeira, Óbidos, Porto Covo…. I like design, photography, relaxing in the beach, drinking coffee, lounging in a terrace with a good view and welcome and make good suggestions about Portugal best treasures! Gosto de praia, viajar, fotografar, beber café, passar uma tarde na esplanada, desportos radicais, aventuras e grandes desafios! Não gosto da palavra Não, de injustiças, pessoas falsas ou desonestas. Também não simpatizo com artrópodes e outros pequenos animais. Adoro conhecer pessoas, sítios e descobrir coisas novas. Gosto de arte, cinema, música e pessoas interessantes. Gosto de viver feliz!
