Castelo Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Centrally located apartment near Castelo sao Jorge
The apartment is where we go and relax and enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle in the heart of the old city.
Easy access to the airport by taxi or public transport allows a quick and simple arrival allowing you to really enjoy a weekend break.
Having been recently renovated and with a terrace for BBQ it is really set up for enjoying the home after a tiring day exploring.
Otherwise the local amenities such as restaurants and bars mean that every mood is catered for. The city has a great night life, many within walking distance.
Our charming building probably built in the nineteenth century, was restored in 2007 -2008 and is one of the many picturesque streets outside the Castle S. Jorge.
The flat has a maximum capacity of 2 people adults and a child (infant 0-3 years old ) .
The apartment has internet access, TV and a lovely view of the street from the French doors at the front of the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Our stay in the apartment offered by Isabel and Mark was one of the most successful holidays we have had in recent years. First, the information we got earlier from Isabel were extremely comprehensive and take into account all of our expectations. Secondly, part of Lisbon in which it is located apartment (district Mouraria, literally at the foot of the castle Castelo Sao Jorge) is not so loud and full of tourists as neighboring Alfama, while lying next to the city center - Rossio - and very close to two metro stations (Martim Moniz Square and Rossio Station). The streets (and ubiquitous stairs) Mouraria are full of charming small restaurants and bars (some of them are very exotic - such as one offering dishes from Sao Tome, second from Mozambique, and a third of Pakistani Punjab), tiny squares and historic houses, as well as - which is very important - smiling people who greet strangers kindly, and if you are eager to help. The apartment itself is well equipped (especially the kitchen area), and can it really feel like home. It should be noted that the street where the apartment (Rua das Farinhas) is - as in the very center of Lisbon - relatively quiet. Car traffic on it one way, and the bedroom is from the yard (actually podwóreczka, because it is tiny). We highly recommend stopping by the apartment Isabel and Mark and - hopefully that will happen - we will use it again with their hospitality.
Isabel is from Portugal and Mark is originally from Australia but the both of us live in Oxford in the UK. We travel to the Lisbon and stay apartment often to enjoy the city.
Mark wanted to have an apartment right in the centre of the old town where we could enjoy the full Portuguese lifestyle of the old city. Easy trip from the airport on the metro and within walking distance of bars, restaurants and coffee shops.
So close to the centre of the city, we love to go and enjoy exploring the streets: everytime we go we find something we didnt know existed! Last visit we decided to become experts at presunto!
