Description
Welcome to Lisbon!!!

Nestled against the walls of Castelo São Jorge (castle) in the center of Lisbon, this charming apartment enjoys an exceptional location in the old part of town and stunning views over the Baixa (center), river and Ponte 25 de Abril (bridge).

The castle, Sé (cathedral) and legendary 28 tram are just 3 minutes walk away and the Baixa with its shops, Metro, monuments and museums can be reached by foot within 5-7 minutes, making the apartment the perfect base for sightseeing, eating out or simply relaxing on the roof terrace under the castle walls. Despite its central location it is well away from the noise and bustle of downtown Lisbon on account of its position on top of the hill which also ensures cool evening breezes and breathtaking sunsets.

The apartment is on the 3rd floor (no lift/elevator)of a 18th century palace built by Conde (Count) de Penafiel, the royal postmaster, and the building still displays his coat of arms carved in stone. Laid out on two floors, it consists of a living room, study, hall/dining area, ample bathroom and kitchen with original 18th century hand-painted tiles and stone fireplace surround, roof terrace and two double bedrooms.

It should be noted that the bedrooms are under the eaves of the building and therefore standing height is limited (although the 6 foot owner has lived there happily for many years)and the stairs leading to the bedrooms have limited handrail protection making the flat unsuitable for disabled people or young children.

The owners, who still use the apartment as their home, provide local information about to getting around, where to eat and what to see.

We would be glad to welcome you at my place soon!

Wir haben uns in der liebevoll und gemütlich eingerichteten Wohnung sehr wohl gefühlt. Einige Sitzmöbel sind schon etwas durchgesessen, aber die Betten waren prima.Da die Wohnung an einer größeren Straße liegt muss man allerdings mit nächtlichem Lärm durch Fahrzeuge rechnen. Die Wohnung liegt im obersten 5.Stockwerk, dh. es sind täglich viele Stufen zu schaffen. Der Vermieter Roberto hat uns am ersten Tag sehr viele wertvolle Tipps gegeben und da die Wohnung so zentral liegt, kann alles gut zu Fuß erreicht werden.Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit.

Excellent ! L'accueil d' Alexandra a été super. Avant l'arrivée un petit échange pour convenir de l'heure du rendez vous très précis. A l'arrivée de précieux conseils de visites et un appartement très propre tout à fait concordant à la description.
Au départ un au revoir bien agréable qui donne envie de recommander ++ cette hôtesse et son appartement pour 2 personnes bien situé au coeur de Lisbonne.

Alexandra was so nice to me upon arrival, she didn't looked in any hurry and had plenty of time for me to chat and give all explanations about the apartment and Lisbon. It was my 5th or 6th visit and wanted to experience alternative ways of getting to know this lovely capital of my beloved Portugal. She understood and provided perfect tips to find the strangest ideas I had about architecture.

The apartment is clean and well equipped. Maybe because I am used to small places I found it specially cosy. The colours are very joyful and thanks to the double windows with special treatment for noise, nothing to worry about the street being noisy at night (I saw them in the pictures and this made me think that Alexandra takes care of the details).

Location is PER-FECT if you look for a perfect blend of authenticity and touristy action.

Only thing is noise of strong hitting from teh other side of the wall in the morning around 9-10:00h but that's a good time to wake up anyway. And maybe they were ocasional works and I got the bad luck.

Thank you Alexandra, you are class!

We enjoyed our holiday apartment in 5 days. It feels great in the entertainment district of Lisbon. Close to many restaurants. For breakfast we were able to visit several places excellent. Public transport (tram, metro) within walking distance, as well as the tourist coach. The center could we call easy.

Good basic facilities in the apartment, no WIFI. Furthermore, a bit stuffy: In an open window were noisy (Saturday night to 4 hours, the nightlife on), and a closed window I got some claustrophobic tendencies.
