About the property

4 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps a maximum of 6


Beautiful, full of light and very spacious apartment in the historical centre of Lisbon.

The flat in located inside a closed villa (with 2 gates), and has a private garden (a luxury in the middle of the city ) with grass, fruit trees , BBQ and garden furniture where you can seat by the end of the day with a glass of wine feeling everywhere but in the middle of a capital. Since the gate in the garden can be locked this is the perfect space for small children to play, although there is a nice playground nearby.

The apartment is located in 'old Lisbon' and literally 5 min walk away from Alfama , the castle of San Jorge and the famous flea market 'Feira da Ladra. Also only 10 min walking distance from the National Pantheon of Santa Engracia and Lisboa's cathedral

Graca (where we are) is an area with a bohemian but also very family-orientated atmosphere that, like most of Lisbon, is very safe and in the summer you can see children up to midnight

4 bedrooms, 1 large living room, kitchen and bathroom. Kitchen fully equipped, towels and linen included. Wireless.

5-10 minutes walking distance from shops, supermarkets, restaurants and services such as banks and public transport - 28 tram, buses and taxis , etc

IF YOU DO NOT INFORM US IN ADVANCE, we cannot guarantee to have someone available, and you might have to stay somewhere else in your first night.

What makes this apartment unique

A private garden, the luminosity from the big windows with unrestricted views together with the large size of this apartment makes this apartment unique in this part of town.

The historical centre is a great place to stay because you can walk to many amazing monuments and places and ben downtown. There are many apartments in the old part of town but none have this perfect combination of features.

There are always birds singing in the morning making breakfast outside a great way to start the day (especially as the sun rises on the side of the garden ).

Perfect flat in perfect area of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We (two parents and 5 children) had a wonderful stay in this very charming flat. The view is fantastic and we enjoyed the garden very much. Also, the neighbourhood is great with lots of small restaurants, shops, cafes etc. All practical arrangements with the owner went smoothly, and there were even helpfull "assistants" next door who kindly ordered taxis etc for us. Within easy walking distance (10-15 minutes) to "down-town" Lisbon, and trams just around the corner.

Highly recommended for everybody who loves Lisbon.

A wonderful place to stay to explore Lisbon.

  • 3 of 5

My family of 5 adults stayed at this lovely apartment for 2 weeks. It is very well located close to the castle and other attractions. from here we were able to visit all the sights and many restaurants in Lisbon. It has a lovely quiet and secluded garden filled with figs, that we had for our breakfast. We were able to spend many evenings sipping wine and the local cherry Brandy at the local view point, a place where others climbed up hill to go, for us a 2 minutes level walk!

The views from the main bedroom and lounge were stunning and gave us spectacular sunsets to watch. The tram ( no28), is also a level walk away. This was very useful when after a long days sightseeing we returned home. There are plenty of local cafes and a couple of supermarkets with fresh produce and cakes and pastries to enjoy.

Catarina and her family were very helpful during our stay when we needed them. We would recommend Lisbon and its rich culture, as a great place for weekend or like us an extended holiday with time to fully explore all it has to offer. If we ever go back, I would not hesitate to return to this lovely flat.

Spacious, charming flat in beautiful area of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

Catarina´s apartment is spacious, charming, with tasteful traditional furniture and a nice little garden. It is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Lisbon. The communication was easy, and the information given to us a few days before our stay contained all relevant details. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Highly recommendable.

Excellent location, excellent owner, ecxellent communication

  • 5 of 5

I could write kilometers of praising for this vacation rental and its owner - but instead I will only say this: our group of three adults (with pretty long history of travelling together all over the world) has decided to come again next summer - and we made our booking for 2017 about two days after we had returned (better safe than sorry policy) from this great place. Thank you Brian - you saved our vacations at the point where it seemed totally ruined by a terrible rental we had to run away from right after we got there. It was well, well worth it to drive hundreds of kilometers alongside the Spanish coast to escape from hell and get to your lovely paradise! See you in August 2017!

Car: not necessary

Located right in the historical centre of Lisboa, in the bohemian area of Graca this flat (within a villa so also very quiet) is literally 5 minutes walking distance from Alfama, 3 min from the castle of San Jorge or the famous flea market Feira da Ladra and right next to a variety of outside cafes and the best Lisbon's belvedere (see photos).

Because it's located in the south of the city you can get to the beach in 30 minutes by car or 45 using public transport. and you can walk to the shopping district - Baixa - in half a hour. Graca is from where the famous tram number 28 leaves

Despite its central location, and since it's inside a closed patio/villa, the apartment is quiet and safe for children
