Castelo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom Apartment, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4, in Historical District, Free Internet

The Castelo (castle) apartment is a one bedroom apartment in an 18th century building, near the top of the hill in the oldest neighborhood of Lisbon. A few steps away is Castelo Sao Jorge, with its terrace and walls nestled on the highest point of the hill, affording a 360 degree view of Lisbon, the magnificent river Tagus, and the other 6 hills undulating across the city. Down the hill is the majestic main cathedral Se, built in 1050. The cathedral’s tower can be seen from the balcony of the apartment, along with a partial view of the river. The modern 75m2 (800ft2) apartment is filled with natural light, coming through 5 double glass windows/ doors leading to the 2 balconies. It retains traditional Portuguese character throughout. Amenities include security camera, central audio system, hydro message shower cabin, wireless internet, granite and marble bathroom and kitchen. Upon arrival at the apartment, you will be greeted by a local who can provide help 24/7.

During the day, the castle is a popular attraction. At sunset, the neighborhood reverts to a peaceful tranquility, brimming with historical elegance, perfect for romantic strolls on narrow winding cobblestone streets. (Some guests have recommended turning off all the lights in the apartment at night, and opening all the shutters, to bathe in the amber glow from the street lamps, the sparkling lights from the rustic buildings, and the silvery gleam of the moon). Enjoy relaxed dinners at nearby family run restaurants, and drinks at hilltop cafes overlooking the city and its sparkling lights. Or, visit Resto do Chapito, down the block, a restaurant, cafe and bar, with a terrace famed for its spectacular view of the city and the river. And for a relaxing time, visit the top-ranked wine bar around the corner of the building, where the owner will explain to you about all the wine regions in Portugal.

The apartment is easy to reach by mini bus, tram or taxi from other downtown locations. The bus stop is 10m (30ft) from the apartment (frequency: 15 minutes), and the whimsical tram station is a 3 minute walk. Access to other neighborhoods by foot is quick: Baixa (at the bottom of the hill) in 5-10 minutes, Chiado in 15 minutes, and a major subway station in 10-15 minutes. (A guide to finding short cuts for walking is offered in the welcome book.) Car rental is absolutely not needed in Lisbon. The international airport is approximately 15 minutes away by taxi (12 to 20 euros).

Note: The building where the apartment is located was inhabited by Viscount Sao Bartolomeu in the 19th century. There were unconfirmed documents indicating that the site used to house a small castle (palacetta) of queen Dona Leonor in the 15th century.

What a Wonderful Place to Stay in Lisbon

The apartment was so lovely it was hard for us to leave each morning, and we were delighted to return each evening. The location is perfect, it is so charming yet so modern and well appointed. The owner, Joe, was beyond helpful with emails on where to go, how to get there, where to eat, etc. His property manager made check-in a breeze. We loved Lisbon and would return in a heartbeat, but would insist on staying at our apartment beneath the Castle..

We had an amazing time at the apartment and in Lisbon. It is a great city and so easy to get around whether you are walking or using the various modes of transport. The apartment is in a perfect location and is quite lovely.It has a great kitchen and bath and the bed is extremely comfortable . After a busy day of site-seeing it is so nice to return there,open all the windows, turn off the lights and take in the night glow from the street lamps, while sipping a cold glass of great wine. Heaven. Joe sent a wealth of information covering transport, day trips, site-seeing and where to eat. We hope to return to Lisbon and would look no further than this apartment. It is perfect, perfect, perfect. Thanks Joe for everything, you made this a memorable first time trip to Lisbon.

Beyond expectations

My husband and I had a wonderful experience in this apartment. It is located in the Alfama right next to the caste which is one of the main sights in Lisbon. The apartment is in an old building completely renovated inside and modernized. It is tastefully decorated and so very comfortable. It is beautiful. We loved it and so did the people who used before as we could read in the guest book.The attention we received from the owner goes well beyond what we have received in other places and we do travel regularly. Before our arrival we received pages of info on what to do as we landed, where to get a mobile phone, a taxi,where to eat and what to do, etc...We were overwhelmed. You are welcome buy an English speaking person who explains the workings of the place and leaves an phone number where you can get help 24 hours a day. It could not be better

We could not recommend it more highly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a wonderful feedback and I am glad that you had a great stay. A little note about our location, the castle and its surrounding area, including ours, is known as Castelo or the Castle area. Alfama is 10 minutes on the other side, down the hill.

A beautiful place in a beautiful city

My husband and I loved this apartment and this city. The Castelo apartment is beautifully appointed and well located, but its charm lies in its personality and the
unique way it is integrated into its neighborhood and into greater Lisbon. We truly felt as if we were a part of the local neighborhood. Amenities such as a washer and dryer, gorgeous balconies, and air conditioner were complemented by a frequent local bus, excellent restaurants, and generous, friendly neighbors. We can't wait to return.

Beautiful apartment in ideal location

We had a wonderful time in Lisbon and loved this beautiful apartment - the pictures really don't do it justice - lovely wood and marble features throughout. We loved that it was a corner apartment with good views and we loved opening the windows and enjoying the breeze. The location is ideal to historical sites like the castle and roman ruins and all the shops and cafes of old town Lisbon. We look forward to staying there and visting Lisbon again one day. All of owners notes, lists, suggestions and information was invaluable.
