About José Luís Azevedo

I was born in 1972 and I am a designer.

I live in the apartment across the one I am renting. I was in charge of both apartments’ full renovation. I love the old quarters of Lisbon and their historic buildings. I always wanted to live in this part of town.

I love meeting people from abroad and I deal with my guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between.

I try to be as helpful as I can in order to make you feel truly at home.

José Luís Azevedo purchased this apartment in 2008

Why José Luís Azevedo chose Santos-o-Velho

I specially picked this neighborhood to live in, because it’s undergoing an interesting transformation - from heavy industry and naval related commerce and services to becoming “Lisbon’s Design District” – with shops, universities, studios and company’s connected to design and architecture moving in.

Another great advantage of this neighborhood is that you can walk to all the busiest areas in downtown and you have all main transports and station near bye to take you everywhere else (including the beach). There are also all sorts of restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, etc. all around. Also, in the center, it is still one of the few areas where you can find a place to park. Two blocks away, there are two public parkings for your car.

This is an area that is still not too touristic and feels truly Lisboan without being excessively “popular.”

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment has a great vibe. It's airy and full of sunlight all year round. It's in a high floor, so you have more privacy, security, sunlight and less impact from the street.

The building is original from the XVIIIth century, right after the great earthquake of Lisbon which took place in 1755. It was built in a typical 'Pombalino' style, a type of construction and architecture that are protected by law and candidate to UNESCO's World Heritage Patrimony classification. The building is mainly assembled with wooden beams, in a “cage” like structure inspired in naval construction from the period. A type of construction quite advanced for its time and considered to be the first anti-earthquake type of construction in the world. It is flexible, but it doesn’t break.

The renovation of the building and the apartment took in consideration this historical heritage. However, you will find a modern apartment with sound proofing on the ceilings and windows and all you should expect from a modern home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Eine schöne Ferienwohnung im Stadtteil Santos-o-Velho im Zentrum Lissabons

Die Ferienwohnung liegt in der vierten Etage eines stilvoll renovierten Hauses in der Rua da Boavista 120.

Wir, zwei Ehepaare, waren im März 2013 für drei Tage in der Wohnung und haben uns dort sehr wohlgeführt. Der Empfang durch den Vermieter, Herrn José Luís Azevedo war ausgesprochen freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung besitzt zwei geräumige Schlafzimmer, ein Badezimmer, eine separate Essküche und ein sehr einladend eingerichtetes, großes Wohnzimmer sowie einen kleineren Abstellraum. Gut geeignet ist die Wohnung für zwei bis vier Personen. Die Wohnung ist sehr sonnig, ruhig, vollständig geschmackvoll renoviert mit Liebe zum Detail. Sie bietet kostenloses Wireless-Internet und Kabel-TV (80 internationale Sender).



Von der Wohnung aus ist das Zentrum von Lissabon gut zu Fuß zu erreichen, man kann natürlich auch die historischen Straßenbahnen nehmen, die durch die Rua da BoaVista zockeln. In der Nähe befinden sich einige gute und reelle Restaurants, Herr Azevedo berät hierzu seine Gäste gerne.



Hier noch eine kleine Besonderheit des Hauses : unten im Hausflur befindet sich neben dem Treppenhaus eine kleine Schusterwerkstatt, wo ein älterer, freundlicher Herr beim Licht einer kleinen Lampe Schuhe repariert. Er hatte gut zu tun.



Wenn wir noch einmal zu viert nach Lissabon reisen sollten, würden wir diese Wohnung wieder gerne mieten.

living amongst the nicest people in the world

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I just came back from a wonderful 10-day vacation in Portugal and Spain. We opted for an apartment in lieu of a hotel. I am glad we did! The people in Portugal were the nicest and the most genuinly friendly people I have ever met. Our host was definitely one of them. Our fantastic host, Jose Luis greeted us with open arms and heart. He helped us plan our trip, recommended places for us to eat, as well as simply chatting with us, making us truly feel at home. The apartment was super clean and tidy and contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to feel like they live amongst friends.

Owner's Response: Hello A., Thank you very much for your comment. It was a pleasure receiving you as guests in my apartment. I am glad you enjoyed your stay here as well as the city and the people of Lisbon. I also enjoyed very much meeting you and your sister. Maybe we'll meet again someday. Either here in Lisbon or in Brooklyn NY ; ) Best regards, JL

Great Apartment and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the the apartment in Feburary for 7 nights.

We found the apartment to be just as the photos indicated. The place was very comfortable, clean, and also very well naturally lit with lots of sunlight in the bedrooms and the main living area.

The kitchen was equipped with all of the required pots, pans, utensils, plates glasses, etc to make any kind of meal you wanted. We used it each day for a nice hot, cooked breakfast to start our days. The market is close by as well which made things even easier!

All in all, I would reccomend the apartment ot anybody wanting a reasonably priced unit with a great location while visiting the great city of Lisbon!

Thanks Jose!!

Jättefin lägenhet med perfekt läge

  • 5 of 5

Vi var 5 svenska kvinnor som bodde i lägenheten 6 nätter. Den är perfekt för fyra personer (om man två och två delar två breda sängar) men det gick jättebra att vara fem också, då bäddsoffan i vardagsrummet fungerar bra som säng! Fräsch och snygg lägenhet! José var hjälpsam och trevlig och bor i lägenheten bredvid. Lagom gångavstånd ner till stan. Nära också upp till Bairro Alto, man kan ta spårvagnslinbana upp om man vill. Mycket nära en moderniserad saluhall där man både kan handla och också äta på olika typer av restauranger! Vi kan verkligen rekommendera denna lägenhet!

Thank you José for a good stay in Lisboa! We enjoyed the flat very much and gives it and you our best recommendations! Greetings from Agneta

Excellent location: excellent apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Having been to Lisbon for a few days in February....we HAD to return!

The apartment was great...everything you needed and in such a great location: easy access to public transport and all the 'sights', although by walking around the city you soon get your bearings and find lots of little gems.

We are looking forward to coming back soon.

Very nice and well located apartment!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Lisboa in this very well located apartment. It is a very spacious and clean place exactly like in the pictures. We enjoyed living like locals. Thank you to José-Luis who gave us a lot of advices and tips. It was easy to booked, to get to and to leave it. We recommend to rent this apartment, just get ready to climb some stairs at the end of the day :)
