Overview

About the property

The Bica Attic is a bright, sunny apartment in Lisbon District São Paulo. It meets all the conditions that can be put to amenities and comforts of a modern home. And, differently than you might expect from an attic, it is very pleasant temperature thanks to a completely overhauled roof insulation. The apartment is located in the heart of Lisbon, "Bica", a historic district on the southern slopes of Lisbon towards Tejo. She is ideally suited for 1 or 2 couples, but is also well equipped child-friendly (2 double beds, 1 Snap-bed, cot available).

Bica is a picturesque district in the half of the roads are stairs - so hilly it is here. Through the center, the Rua da Bica Duarte Belo cuts, on a ropes drawn tram, a "Elevador" Cais Sodré at the foot up to the Bairro Alto (above) runs. This Elevador operates since 1892 and is classified in the meantime, as a historical object.

In Bica you are virtually "in the midst". Up where Calhariz the party mile Bairro Alto Bica and Sao Paulo separates, one encounters a busy life. Also you will find there plenty of shopping opportunities for everything you need to live.

In Bica you are virtually "in the midst". Up where Calhariz the party mile Bairro Alto Bica and Sao Paulo separates, one encounters a busy life. Also you will find there plenty of shopping opportunities for everything you need to live. Turning to the other hand down, we come to Cais Sodre, the station of the "Linha de Cascais" that, a kind of light rail along the Tagus river goes to the flows in Cascais, the last stop in the open sea.

From the apartment is about 50m upwards until Calhariz. Then right down leads in 2 mins to Largo Camões and in another minute, across the square as early as Café Brasileira in Chiado. Camões (pronounced Kameusch) and Chiado are certainly two names that you should remember, because everyone knows them in Lisbon, and in addition, they are popular meeting places.

Always the legendary tram No 28 along the narrow streets of old Lisbon through to the parliament building in São Bento Turning to the Calhariz arrived but left, as you pass through. And who is there still adventurous and on foot, you can walk on to the cathedral in Estrela. A coffee or tea and one or the other piece "Pasteis" but definitely recommended.

Adorable Property in Prime Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Bica attic apartment. The hosts were extremely responsive before and during our stay, and the location provided a great spot from which to see, experience and explore the city! Additionally the apartment was clean and comfortably furnished! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your property!

Loved it! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great spot from which to explore Lisbon... The view on the photo is really the street you see looking down from the windows! Very fascinating. It was a "party week" in Lisbon but despite the crowds below, the attic apartment is well insulated, and we heard almost nothing. Great hosts, they even welcomed us with a great bottle of wine!

Appartement de charme

  • 4 of 5

L'appartement tout blanc situé dans les combles est un peu biscornu, partiellement mansardé, mais très agréable, très propre et plein de charme et de recoins, avec une petite vue sur le Tage par dessus les toits. Pas de fausse note dans la déco. Accueil chaleureux. Il est bien situé, dans une rue calme, proche du métro, du tram, du Mercado da Ribeira, du café A Brasileira... Le matériel de cuisine est un peu juste mais il suffit de demander, idem pour le chauffage d'appoint. Un micro ondes serait le bienvenu. Bref, une adresse que nous recommandons. Le prix affiché est pour 2 personnes, au delà il y a un supplément par personne.

himmlischer Altbau - wunderschön restauriert

  • 5 of 5

Charakterstarke, frisch restaurierte und helle Wohnung unter den Dächern der Altstadt. Morgens Kaffee durch das Fensterchen über dem Esstisch mit Blick auf den Tejo. Geschmackvoll und liebevoll-sachlich eingerichtete Küche und Bad. Und vom Vermieter zum Empfang noch leckere Marmelade und Kräuter dazu. Entspannung pur nach Durchwanderungen von Lissabon.

Wunderbar!
