About Filipe Rodrigues

I´m an architect working and living in Lisbon. I love Lisbon!

Filipe Rodrigues purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Filipe Rodrigues chose Graca

This apartment use to be where I live when I was studing architecture. After this, the apartment was my architecture studio. Now I share it with people that want to meet Lisbon just as it is. In the neighborhood of Graça you can have the real feeling of Lisbon, not only because of the place it self but also because of the people.

What makes this apartment unique

Taste of Lisbon in Graça: views, local attractions, people and walking distance to main attractions of Lisbon. If you come with children and want to have a break in Lisbon there is a friendly neighbour (M. Inês) that can take care of them just as she does with her grand children.

Guestbook comments from the owner

J'ai aimé l'espace (trés belle hauteur sous plafond supérieure à 3 voire 4 mètres). L'appartement est trés design avec une jolie déco épurée ponctuée de beaux objets pour certains trés joliment récupérés, les luminaires en particulier, spectaculaires. A tel point que j'ai pris des photos pour m'en inspirer pour ma propre déco ! Nous n'avons pas eu trop chaud grâce au ventilateur surpuissant et au fait que l'appartement est traversant et permet de créer un courant d'air grâce aussi aux fenétres oscillo-battantes. Le clou du spectacle c'est la véranda avec une vue panoramique sur Lisbonne, suffisemment grande pour y déjeuner, avec un peu de verdure et du basilic frais, indispensable pour la salade de tomates. Il est aussi trés bien situé car on descend au centre à pied en 10 minutes. Tous les commerces sont au bout de la rue avec station de taxi et arrêt de bus et de tramway (le fameux 28E). Le quartier est trés sympa, bien portugais.

Clean Apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at Filipe's apartment and were very happy with our decision to stay there. The pictures are bang on and the place feels clean and brand new.

The location was ideal, you're a 5-10 minute walk to Alfalma, less than a 15 minute walk to the main train station for a day trip to Sintra and just steps away from the best view in the city at Miradouro da Senhora do Monte.

We didn't get a chance to meet Filipe but he was readily available on the phone or via email if we needed him. We were lucky enough however to meet his cleaning woman, whose name I have unfortunately forgotten. She doesn't speak a lick of english but could be the friendliest person in the world.

We had a great time.

Comfort with an expansive view

  • 5 of 5

We spent four weeks in Filipe's delightful apartment in Graca. The photos are right on. Though we thought the view more spectacular in person. Graca is up the hill from Alfama on one side and down to the city center on the other. You can be winding your way through Alfama's alleyways in ten minutes. The famous No. 28 tram stops at the end of the street.

The apartment was a comfortable and welcome retreat after hours of exploring on foot. Lisbon is compact so walking everywhere is both efficient and easy. Though be prepared for the hills with good shoes.

The kitchen is efficient, the bathroom even has a view, and the bed is more than adequate.

Filipe will provide a list of places to see and set up a taxi for return to the airport. We loved our stay in Lisbon.

Stunning oasis in this beautiful city!

  • 5 of 5

Filipe was incredibly helpful in the lead up to staying at the beautiful 1-bedroom apartment on this ridge that overlooks the city with views to the river. He sent us recommendations of places to see, eat at, experience to help us with our planning. The apartment itself surpassed photos and our expectations. We loved sitting in the conservatory in the sunshine sipping wine and gazing at the view. The bed was comfortable with 3 long refreshing nights of sleep to testify to that. The living area and kitchen are spacious and open plan with plenty of room for relaxing and preparing your own meals.

We also got more than our daily allowance for exercise as we decided to walk everywhere. Each time we went down to Alfama or to the waterfront we had to remind ourselves that we had a 20 minute walk back up the hill. One morning we did catch the #28 tram which is nearby and goes to all the places we wanted to visit. We just enjoyed making the most of the outdoors and weather whilst we were there. There is also easy access for grocery shopping - we went to the supermarket for staples, a local butcher for our meat and a local deli for baked goods. Utter bliss.

Fantastic apartment and lovely owner!

  • 5 of 5

We can't rate our stay highly enough! My fiancee and I absolutely loved the apartment - the stylish decor, incredible views of Lisbon and ideal location being just a few of the things we loved about it! The owner, Filipe is a real gentleman, he went out of his way to help us before our arrival, offering advice on where to go, places to see, his advice was invaluable. He also called us the morning we were leaving to congratulate us on our engagement and to help us arrange a taxi to the airport, we were just sorry that we didn't get to meet him in person as he was so friendly and had actually asked us to his office for coffee! We discovered that Filipe studied architecture in Lisbon and actually lived in the apartment while studying and you can tell, the contemporary style is infused with traditional furniture and lighting, it's really homely and very cool. The facilities are great and there is more than enough space for two or four people. The apartment is less than a ten minute walk from a main street with a supermarket, loads of shops, the old cobbled streets and trams. You can catch a taxi for less than 5 Euros from the newer part of town where all of the fancy shops are and the view of the city at night from the apartment has to be one of the best in Lisbon. We really fell in love with Lisbon and the apartment and highly recommend it, if you're wondering whether or not to book this apartment I would advise to get it booked now, don's miss out! Thanks again Filipe, we hope to visit Lisbon again and maybe catch up next time! Much love, Michael & Rinki x

Amazing vacation rental in Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We had a most excellent stay in the LiSBON Art apartment! Felipe, the owner, was so very friendly with us and most hospitable. He gave us great tips for where to shop and what to do while in Lisbon for our two week stay. The apartment itself is a work of art - most inspiringly decorated and very spacious, offering a unique experience in color, design, and space. Fantastic! We enjoyed every minute we were there, especially the fabulous sunsets and views over Lisbon. We very much enjoyed our experience in this fabulous vacation suite in the welcoming Portugese neighborhood of Graca. Thank you Felipe!

Perfect Location to Explore Old Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

Great location for walking all of Old Lisbon. If required, cable car and taxis are easily available too. The view is spectacular from the well maintained, well decorated and very comfortable apartment. The apartment is just one street below the highest point in Lisbon. Filipe gave us lots of information on things to do and see and how to get there. We loved experiencing Lisbon by immersing ourselves with the locals instead of staying in a hotel with all the tourists.

We would not recommend renting a car. We tried that because we were going to drive out into the countryside. Old Lisbon is very hard to drive with the narrow hilly streets and one way traffic. Train transportation to Sintra is a much better idea.

You would not be disappointed as this apartment is a perfect home away from home and the neighbourhood seemed to welcome us.

Located between the most famous sights of the city this apartment is a real screen over Lisbon and the Tagus river. Situated in the old town centre in the quiet area of 'Graça', it´s just 150 meters from the 'Senhora do Monte' (city´s highest Belverdere), 300m from the tram stop (famous 'Electrico 28') which provides a historical walk through the hills of Lisbon and 400m from the subway station. The popular neighbourhood of 'Graça' is two steps from the famous market 'Feira da Ladra', the 'São Jorge' Castle, the Monastery of 'São Vincente' and the 'Baixa Pombalina'. 'Graça' is known for its people, by the succession of viewpoints over the city and river, terraces, narrow streets, stairs, shops, traditional restaurants and 'Fado' houses ... If you prefer the comfort of the apartment you will find the 'Forno do Tijolo' market 's within 200m to prepare meals with fresh products from the region.
