Portuguese, currently living between Barcelona and Lisbon. I'm a cultural manager and i've been working for a decade in theatre, dance and music events production.
Xana's place is perfectly located in Lisbon's center, close to Castelo Sao jorge, Mouraria, Alfama and just a few minutes walking to Baixa and Chiado. The apartment is very clean, the double bed is very confortable and from the kitchen you can see the "25 de abril" bridge and the "Cristo Rei".
Xana is a lovely and interesting person, she knows a lot about Lisbon and the best places where you should go.
It was a perfect stay, thanks a lot Xana.
It was a very pleasant stay at the apartment. It is perfectly located-you can reach the centre easily by foot, metro near by, supermarket just at the corner, nice restaurants and bars are around, .. Everything was fine, contact with host and meeting at the flat was very easy and well organized. We enjoyed staying there- I definitely recommend it and would chose it again if I'll come back to Lisbon one day. Thanks Xana!
We had a great time staying in the apartment of Xana.
A very warm welcome by her friend Carina made us feel at home right away. Very good location and I thought it was beautiful to watch the river while making breakfast. There is a supermarket next to the apartment and it's very close to public transport. Before coming to Lisbon, Xana emaild me a map with a lot of places to go to (restaurants, bars but also shops, public transport etc). Very kind and handy.
We stayed there for almost two weeks and the apartment was perfect for that.
Xanas apartment is a very nice place with all you need for a comfy stay. It is very well situated near all the main atractions and center of lisbon.
It was such a great stay. The apartement is located perfectly in the citiy center, but also calm. Just 5 Minutes walk to the Castle or downtown to the shopping malls and all the resaturants.
The supermarket is just down the stairs in front of the house.
We've been provided with everything we needed! The bed is comfortable and everything was clean, just as shown in the pictures.
Unfortunately we didn't get to know Xana, but her friend Carina cared about us very well and showed us the whole apartement at our arrival.
We absolutely recommend to stay in this apartement and hope we'll be back some day! :)
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Xana! Son appartement est idéalement placé, tout peut se faire à pied, et tout ce dont on a besoin à proximité.
L'intérieur est très chouette, avec du cachet et une belle cuisine donnant sur un beau figuier, même si la plomberie est parfois un peu fatiguée, Carina est là pour nous aider!
En définitive, un lieu très portugais, on s'y sent très bien malgré les petits défauts!
Ps: pour s'y rendre, l'entrée de la "travessa" se situe dans la continuité de la "largo"
The apartment is greatly located - you can see the bridge and the Christ statue from the window. It's just 5-10 minutes walk to the Castle as well as to Rossio. Me and my friend adored the apartment itself - it's very cosy, spacious and just nice to be in. The only thing was the problem with hot water: it's tricky to "get" it in the bathroom and it doesn't last long. Despite this, our stay at Xana's apartment was truly pleasant, we enjoyed it a lot.
La estancia ha sido muy agradable, la casa es muy acogedora y Xana es muy amable.
We spent one week in the Xana's flat for our holidays and everything was perfect! The flat is very well located close to the castle. The flat in itself is well arranged and really warm : we felt very comfortable and relax, all we wanted!
Xana's place was delightful. It was relaxing and comfortable and close to the center of town, the castelo and an easy walk to the terrific restaurants in the Bairro Alto. I particularly appreciated the annotated (website hidden) map with her apartment, the nearest ATM and perfect local places to shop and eat. Since she was put of town, she arranged her friend Rui to meet me, show me the apartment and help me with any issues. Thank You Xana and Rui and I hope to be back in Lisbon again!
Xana is a dear friend of mine, since way back! We met in college and have remained friends ever since.
Her apartment in Lisbon is the sweetest thing - a great location in the heart of downtown Lisbon and decorated with impeccable taste!
The beach house in Baleal is a great family vacation option.
Although she’s currently living in Barcelona, I know she’ll be a great host, making sure the place will be clean and tidy for you. She’s a traveler herself, and knows the importance of having a clean and safe place to get to at the end of the day.
She'll make a great guest as well, respectful and friendly.
