Charming and sunny 2-Bedroom flat, with terrace and frontal city-river view, in Bica neighborhood. Ideal for 4 person, but suitable for up to 7. Very convenient location, with all transports, in the heart of the historic center, near Chiado and Bairro Alto.
The flat is a showcase of mixed architecture, resulting from an old style building, reconstructed in the 60's, and recently renovated. It stands out for traditional materials (wooden and ceramic flooring), cozy spaces, large windows, luminosity, and the landscape that enter inside from different angles. The living room and the terrace have, for sure, one of the most attractive views of the city, over Ribeira market area and the Tagus river. This, faced to South, with an excellent Sun exposure.
The number of sleeps is flexible. It's ideal for 4 person, but can be comfortably used by 7. Both bedrooms are equipped with double beds. In the master room, the bed is king size and there is a walk in closet with an extra chair-bed: it's possible to turn it all into a 3 single beds dormitory. In the living room, the sofa can be easily converted in real third couple bed, in a slatted wooden.
What you can expect:
An amazing view. Sunbathing. Comfortable beds. Bed-linen and towels. Kitchen equipped with the essentials for a cooking lover. Free Wi-Fi and Cable TV. Hairdryer. Iron and ironing board.
It's a 3rd floor. No lift, as common in the old city. Regular stairs, easy to climb.
Taking a walk:
Bica is a popular neighborhood, crossed by its historical funicular. It's surrounded by Bairro Alto, Chiado, Santa Catarina, Ribeira/Cais do Sodré, the most vibrant area in Lisbon, plenny of commerce, people and an amazing number of attactions. It's possible to walk to almost everywhere, and this is a interesting starting point to explore the city. Santa Catarina viewpoint is right there (compare with S. Pedro de Alcântara viepoint, not far away). Baixa is 15 minutes walking. For the Castle, it's 30. Curiosly, historical quarters are relatively small, close together and easy to navigate. But, be prepared for an extra effort: Lisbon is literally made by hills.
The area is very central and well connected. There is all kind of transports, practically to everywhere: trams, funiculars, buses, metro (blue and green lines), trains (from Rossio and Cais do Sodré) and even boat for the other river side. From the airport, it’s possible to get to Baixa-Chiado metro station, in 45 minutes. The famous tram 28 cross the main historic neighborhoods, including Bica, towards the Castle. The tram 25 goes to Belém (30 minutes). Sintra is 40 minutes away from Rossio train station. Nearest beaches are spotted along Cais do Sodré railroad (15 to 40 minutes). Surfers should stop in Carcavelos; the romantics, in Estoril or Cascais.
The flat is located in a residential building; please, be silent after 10 PM (including in the terrace).
Rubbish bag: leave it on the street, between 8 and 11 PM (except Sundays).
Smoking: only in the terrace.
Close the terrace door, before going out.

I am happy to write the first review, and I am confident that many great reviews will follow. This is a great apartment in an excellent location. It is simple, elegant, cozy and very functional. Everything on the VRBO website is very accurate. The terrace alone is worth renting this apartment--amazing views. The beds and comforters, comfortable and warm. The location is great! It is walking distance to great areas. We loved taking the tuk-tuks (crazy golf cart- like vehicles) to get to the top of the hills and then work our way down walking. We found our favorite outdoor cafe just down the hill, which included dog Tommy. It was easy to find good restaurants in walking distance. One of the best features is working with Luis, who made staying here the best. He is so easy to work with, attentive to communications, great recommendations, and just a great host. This is my second visit to Lisbon, and I am somewhat of a VRBO addict so between preparing for this trip and the last one, I probably have looked at about every VRBO for Lisbon, and I am so happy I found this one. Thank you, Luis, from Lisa & Kristi
Luis est très accueillant, serviable et d'excellent conseil, il a tout fait pour rendre notre séjour le plus agréable possible et échanger avec nous sur la ville de Lisbonne et ses environs. L'appartement est tres confortable avec une très bonne literie est idéalement situé au cœur de Lisbonne, il correspond parfaitement a la description. La vue est tout simplement magnifique sur le Tage avec une terrasse très sympathique. Une adresse parfaite que je recommanderai sans hésitation et où nous reviendrons avec un très grand plaisir.
Accueil très chaleureux de la part de Luis.
L'appartement est fonctionnel avec les produits de première nécessité (huile d'olive excellente !). Il bénéficie d'une magnifique vue sur le Tage.
Tout est à proximité (centre historique, marché, transports en commun ...).
Le quartier est un peu bruyant le soir, mais sans gêne excessive (double vitrage ...)
Schöne saubere Ferienwohnung, gute Betten, traumhafter Blick, freundlicher Vermieter
Optimale Lage und total interessante Umgebung - und wenn's Zuviel wird ab an einen der vielen Strände.
Für leihautofahrer nur begrenzt gut,
Wegen der engen u steilen Gassen/ Straßen.
Das Appartment perfekt mit guten Vorschlägen für Restaurants.
Das Appartment ist perfekt. Tolle Lage, viele Sehenswürdigkeiten sind fussläufig erreichbar und für den Rest (Belem etc) hat man eine super Anbindung. Luis ist ein toller Gastgeber und kümmert sich um alles. Die Terrasse ist natürlich der absolute Pluspunkt. So etwas findet man selten in Lissabon . Der Ausblick ist überwältigend bei Tag und auch bei Nacht. Restaurants, Supermarkt, Cafes etc in direkter Nähe.
Thank you Luis for a great time and for your help. We enjoyed our stay very much. If we come back to Lisbon we know where to stay !
