Overview

Sao Vicente de Fora Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroomed apartment, 2 bathrooms, living-room, dining area, sleeps 8

Newly renovated 2 bedroomed apartment in the heart of the old city, between Alfama and the Castelo S. Jorge. The living-room offers great views of Monastery S. Vicente, beyond the lemon trees, while the bedrooms and their balconies look onto a small square with plenty of trees surrounded by beautiful old houses; it’s so peaceful it feels like a village square. Entirely renovated in 2011, the apartment has 2 double bedrooms with furnished balconies, to enjoy the sun; 2 full bathrooms, an open kitchen, dining area and a comfortable living-room. Beautiful old tiles (azulejos) have been used to renovate both bathrooms and the kitchen, and traditional Portuguese fabrics (chitas de Alcobaça) decorate the bedrooms. The style is pleasant and colourful mixing antique pieces and modern furniture. An ideal and picturesque base from which to explore Lisbon with family or friends!

Guestbook comments from the owner

EL APARTAMENTO ESTABA BIEN SITUADO, COMODO Y LIMPIO. IDEAL PARA LO QUE NOSOTROS QUERIAMOS QUE ERA PASAR UNOS DIAS EN FAMILIA EN VEZ DE IR A UN HOTEL. GENIAL PARA RECORRER A PIE LOS PRINCIPALES LUGARES DE LISBOA Y BUENA COMUNICACION CON EL TRANSPORTE PUBLICO.

Superb base to explore lovely Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We agree with the other positive reviews of Isabel's apartment. We could not fault anything. Thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay. We had such fun exploring the atmospheric streets. As the weather was exceptional, we enjoyed a day on the beach at Cascais, easily reached by a pleasant train trip from Cais de Sodre. Another day was spent at Sintra, this time by train from Estacao do Rossio. On our final day, we walked to Santa Apolonia station and from there took a taxi to Parque das Nacoes and visited the amazing Oceanario de Lisboa. There is a lot to see and do at the Parque including cable car rides and if you need a shopping fix, there's a mall. We would love to go back to Lisbon as there is so much to see and do and the choice and quality of restaurants are astounding. Thank you Isabel.

Lovely Lisboa

  • 5 of 5

We agree with the other reviews on this site: comfortable apartment, a good location, between the Alfama and Graça areas, with a beautiful view of Church and former Monastery of São Vicente de Fora (recommended for a visit). There is also a lovely wee garden on the ground floor to look down onto - parakeets, black caps dipping into the Strelitzia (bird of paradise) flowers. Lemon trees in full fruit. Lovely cafés in Graça with a pageant of local life. Fado restaurants in Alfama. We recommend the tile museum - but be careful, the shop shut for two hours at lunchtime. The pastels in Belem are good, and the enoteca in Belem has a modern twist on Portuguese food and staff very knowledgeable about wine and with good English. The lady in the tile shop round the corner to the apt speaks good French.

Love Lisboa!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week in the apartment. It was just as described, well-maintained, clean and a perfect location for exploring the surrounding area of Alfama and beyond, either by walking or taking the tram 28 (5 mins from the door). Isabel greeted us at the flat and was very helpful in suggesting places to visit. Highlights were local bakery round the corner, the miradour at Graca with fantastic views of the castle and Lisboa (5mins away), local fado house with performances on Sunday afternoons, flea market on Sat & Tues (5 mins away), local inexpensive restaurants and supermarket. Would definitely recommend the apartment and we hope to return soon to continue our exploration of Lisboa! Note, square can be noisy at night but double glazing is very effective!

Wonderful Holiday Appartement!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The appartement is situated in a very nice quiet and central area. The view is fantastic. The interior of the apartment was nicely arranged, comfortable and clean. Especially the bathrooms are very nice with antique walls and at the same time with all modern equipment needed.

Our host was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Thank you very much Isabel! We are already looking forward to our next visit.

A wonderful quiet and friendly place in Lisboa

A wonderful quiet and friendly place

We looked for a peaceful and true potoguese location – and we did find it. The owner's description is absolute accurate and Isabel is a very friendly and helpful host, offering a well maintained and charming apartment, clean and modern-typical, as we found. The towers of Sao Vicente said „hello“ to us for breakfast through the kitchen window every morning. Most of all we loved the little square „Santa Marinha“ with his trees in front of the house, surrounded by normal portuguese neighbouhood. It seemed for us as if we were miles away from the stressy touritistic mainroads – although the yellow tram stop was a five minutes walk distance away. Also nearby is the marvellous mirador as well as the lively square („Largho“) de Graca. There we founnd many little shops and typical restaurants of all different kind. We certainly do recommend Isabel's apartment to get in love with Lisboa.

In Lisbon you will enjoy an intense cultural life (museums, architecture, exhibitions, music concerts and little 'fado' houses); a wide variety of restaurants, from the big modern style places on the riverside to the small 'tasca' next door; theatre, cinema (original language with Portuguese subtitles), night-life... The shopping is excellent. twice a week don't miss 'Feira da Ladra' (Lisbon's old flea market) only 2 mn away! Walk around the town centre, take the “eléctrico” (tramway) to Belém to visit the Jerónimos Monastery, or nr 28 across the old city centre,the train to Cascais along the coast to one of the nearby beaches, or the ferry at Praça do Comércio to see Lisbon from across the river. Less than 20km away you will find many beaches: Caparica (south of the Tagus), a 20km continuous stretch of sand, and Guincho (near Cascais), world famous for surfing and wind-surfing. Golf players will find a dozen golf courses within a 30 minute drive, on both sides of the Tagus.
