Our beautiful apartment is situated in the heart of Lapa/ Santos, it's a very bright apartment and has been totally renovated. It is on the 1st floor of what was once one house. The living room is at the front of the apartment as you can see from the photos, it has an exquisite ceiling and doors open onto a small dining area. It has 2 double bedrooms, one of which was the old chapel of the house a bathroom with a spacious shower and a fully equipped fitted kitchen that includes a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge,freezer oven, hob, microwave, coffee machine. A rear balcony overlooks a private garden belonging to the apartment below. The apartment has electric heating and freestanding fans for the summer months also internet, cable tv and a music centre.
The apartment is in the embassy area of Lisbon and although it is quite near to the centre it is also quiet at night so you can get a good night sleep before exploring the city.
It's is close to the Basilica and Jardim da Estrella (10 minutes walk) but also close to the River.
There are lots of restaurants ( from cheap tascas to more upmarket and everything in-between), the same goes for the bars,there are little shops, supermarkets and a newsagents. Everything you could possibly need is close by. We are also very close to the National Museum of Ancient Art ( Museu Nacional da Arte Antiga) ,among the paintings you can see a wonderful Heironymus Bosch tryptic, the Museum has a beautiful garden overlooking the river where you can have coffee and a superb chocolate and walnut gooey cake). Close by is also the Museum of Marionettes ( Museu da Marioneta) .
We have owned the apartment for 8 years and we absolutely love it, we have been living on the Algarve for over 30 years and whenever we can we like to use it ourselves. There is so much we still need to explore, it's a fascinating city and we feel extremely honored to own this gorgeous apartment in this very special neighborhood..
Because of it's location you can just about walk anywhere but you also have the choice of buses trams and taxis that you can catch from the bottom of the road. We are also very near the train station of Santos where you can take a train along the coast up to Cascais ( It's a beautiful ride).

Wonderful apartment and perfect location!
My sister and I spent our first week in Europe mainly on the train so by the time we arrived in Lisbon we were ready to relax and this apartment is the perfect place to do it! Beautiful, restful rooms, quiet neighborhood, and within walking distance of lots to see and do. We will definitely stay again if we go back, and recommend the property to friends/family. Clive's paintings are beautiful!
Elegant Architectural Gem
We had a delightful experience on our Lisbon stay. The is on the first upper floor, mid block on one of the many hills of Lisbon. It is in a neighborhood know for the many embassies and official residences, so the area is a delightful mix of homes and fine restaurants. This apartment is lovingly equipped with not only the usual needs, but beautiful local artwork of the surroundings. The ceilings are all unique, high and a beautiful addition to the apartments charm. The interior has great light, both overlooking the street with french balcony doors, and the rear yard which has a connecting terrace. The two bedrooms, one bath, and roomy kitchen and living spaces provide both comfort and privacy. Both the neighborhood and the apartment is a gem.
Thank you for your review, we are very happy that you had such a good experience.
You are welcome to return any time. Best wishes Clive and Linda.
Very clean , felt like home instantly!
The apartment is set up to accommodate all your needs. We felt very cozy and safe. The neighbourhood and transportion runs frequently and we had no problems getting around. Except if a car parks close to the tram rails, then you are delayed till owner either moves the car or police tow it. Susana was there to greet us upon arrival and went through all the details. We really enjoyed our time there and will return next year! Cheers
Great Lisbon Apartment
Nice, clean, well-appointed apartment
We loved the apartment. Beautiful and comfortable surroundings. It was very nice to come back here at the end of a busy day. It was wonderful to be able to make coffee, make meals etc. I would highly recommend this apartment. The owners and caretakers were very helpful and answered all of our questions in a timely manner.
Nice Quiet Neighborhood
The apartment is wonderful. It makes you feel like you are in a time long ago. The beautiful ceilings, the arched windows with the original glass and folding shutters. The pictures on VRBO are accurate. Clive''s art work is fabulous. Be prepared to walked several blocks to the closet bus station then good luck determining the routes. Susana gave us excellent information on the area.
