This luxury apartment is strategically located in the Heart of Lisbon City Centre, just 150 meters from 'Avenida da Liberdade', which is considered to be one of the most elegant place in Lisbon. This boulevard, built in the 19th century in the style of the Champs-Elysees in Paris, is the main avenue of the city. It links the famous Marquês de Pombal Square to the Restauradores Square (Lisbon's historic centre). The avenue is also the site of the city's many 5* hotels and designer outlets including Hugo Boss, Armani, Hermés & Louis Vuitton.

2 Bedroom fully air-conditioned apartment (1st floor) with WiFi Internet and Cable TV is fully refurbished to a high standard.

New colours and modern furnishings combine romantic charm with sleek modern touches. High ceilings, original wood floors, french doors and large windows, blend with tasteful decor and original design, to give this self-catering apartment a charm all of its own in the heart of Lisbon City Centre.

The luxury apartment is flooded with very bright natural sunlight all day long (a big plus in Lisbon city centre) as well as quite (double glazing). It offers luxury & comforts to visiting business and leisure travellers. Complementary airport transfers from & to Lisbon airport.

There are many attractions such as Museums, Theatres, Palaces, Churches, Restaurants, Cafes (Hard Rock Cafe) and the Tagus River, all 5-10 min walk away.

DOWNTOWN LISBON - BAXIA : Is the heart of the city. It is the main shopping and banking district that stretches from the riverfront to the Avenida da Liberdade, with streets named according to the shopkeepers and craftsmen who traded in the area. Most attractions can be easily reached on foot. Metro, buses, trams and taxis at the door and trains to Sintra and Cascais at short walking distances

Baixa because it oozes life, its old world charm mixing easily with today’s action. Rua Augusta is the main tourist street and here alongside the Art Nouveau store fronts, grizzled old locals read the papers hung at corner kiosks and tourists settle in at premium-rate pavement cafés watching a parade of buskers, street artists and the ubiquitous Peruvian pan pipers.

The Baixa’s central square, Rossio, provides some of the best free entertainment in the city. All of Lisbon’s masses seem to drift across Rossio’s undulating mosaic paving at some time. Stop for a coffee and watch the passing scene.

The Baixa up to the Marquês do Pombal square show you a different Lisbon, with theatres, train stations, cafés and large squares to walk around. Head towards Belém to see the majestic Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, the famous Torre de Belém and the many museums around it. Don’t forget to try out the famous Pastéis de Belém.

There is also direct access to the Lisbon airport from this area by AEROBUS (to Libon Airport)

There are hundreds of places to see in Lisbon. Some are deceptively well hidden in between the narrow streets of the city, so the best for you to do is venture out and discover them! Filled with an ancient history and a contemporary lifestyle, Lisbon perfectly combines the old and the new.

Down through Chiado and Bairro Alto, find some of the most trendy bars and restaurants in Lisbon. During the day, the streets are filled with lively crowds travelling to the modern art museums, the high street shops, the local galleries, the cafés or the local gourmet grocery store.

Downtown - Sights to Watch: The area's top three sights are undoubtedly Comercio Square, Rossio Square, and the Santa Justa Elevator. Don’t miss any of these. Don't forget to look down at the cobbled mosaic pavements as you walk down Avenida da Liberdade, past Restauradores, Rossio, and into Rua Augusta.

The nondescript facade of the 'Casa do Alentejo' restaurant in Rua das Portas de Santo Antao hides a most beautiful Moorish interior. The price of the meal (reasonably high, but the food is excellent) is justified by the surroundings. Take a walk down Rua Augusta, the city's main shopping street but you will find that most goods can be found cheaper elsewhere. Stop and look at Sao Domingos Church, to the right of the National Theatre.

Lisbon famous landmark São Jorge Castle is less than 15 min walk from the apartment.

A great central location for exploring Lisbon

  • 4 of 5

Don''t be dismayed by the entrance and stairwell. The flat is renovated, bright, airy and very comfortable. Beds were great, kitchen had all the necessary gadgets ( a two cup french press would be welcome ) and enough space to enjoy and relax. Lots of little markets nearby for food/beverages and very close to some fabulous restaurants. Jun picked us up at the airport and dropped us off at end of our stay - very helpful. This is a short, but steep climb up from the Libertad and close to higher end shopping. Bairra Alto a 15 minute walk ( everywhere in this city is up and down !).

Nice apartment but difficult location for drivers or people with disabilities

  • 3 of 5

We recently stayed in Lisbon for five nights in this apartments. Although the apartment itself was nice and clean,it was difficult to get to if you are driving to Lisbon. You have to park in a public lot about three hundred meters away up the hill, and then bring your luggage down the hill. The entrance to the apartment is disappointing but once you are inside its not bad. If you have any walking disabilities this apartment is not for you since you have to walk up one flight and there is no elevator, plus the street in front is a steep hill.

Lovely inside

  • 3 of 5

This was a charming little flat with a few small issues. There were some hidden cleaning fees that I didn't know about until the day before we arrived, but it was understandable. The power would get blown out occasionally if it was too taxed, so no dish washer and clothing at the same time. But there were climate controllers in every room, which made the place perfect for Goldilocks and each of her bear friends. The owner is very eager to please his guests which lead to us having to check out early because of when their flights arrived. And parking was not actually provided with the flat and we would occasionally have to walk five minutes up the hill to a local park where we would leave the car.

This apartment had a lot of pros and cons. It was nice for a short holiday but I wouldn't visit it again.

Yes Definately Location Location

  • 4 of 5

We went to Lisbon for a short break to celebrate a 50th. The apartment is truly what it says, location. 15 mins walk to all major tourist sights, lots of shops and restaurants. Apartment is very cosy and very much "home from home" . Very clean and décor excellent. Beds very comfy and thick towels very nice touch. We felt very safe, 4 ladies walking back at night was no problem. Lots of taxis around if needed but we travelled on trams. Belem well worth a visit. Nearby Nepalese restaurant well worth a visit, delicious!

The bonus was the complimentary airport transfers, no need to wait for taxis or buses. Also, the complimentary pass to Holmes Place for spa was well worth a visit on this girly weekend!

Would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family an would also go back.

Everything was excellent

  • 5 of 5

Every detail matched the description. If You want to discover Lisbon, just rent this apartment!

Our practical tips (2 adults with 3 and 1 year old kids):

- Get Via Viagem public transport card and charge money to it. The card is valid in metro, bus, tram, some trains, ferry, elevators and santa justa lift. Don't buy expensive tourist cards. Charge cards next to the elevador da Gloria. Cash only. You can try also ticket machines at metro stations, but we always got "operation cancelled" with both Visa and MC.

- Usually the second or third ATM gave us money, don't know why. Be patient!

- Also use taxis! A ride from the apartment to Castelo San Jorge cost 4.25, to Belem 7.50, to Cristo Rei 12.50 and from Pingo Doce supermarket near Rossio station 2.90!

- If You are travelling with kids and need a doctor, use hospital Luz (blue metro line / Luz). Cash only or some insurance cards, no credit cards.

- Every restaurant will pack you dinner for take-away. We often had our evening supper home because of our small kids. Elevador do Lavra operates from the "restaurant alley" up very close to the apartment.

- There is a children's playground less than 100 meters from the apartment. Up the hill 30 m, turn right and you are there!

- You can have your breakfast in the cafe across the street. Coffee only 60 cents.

- In the kiosk 50 m downhill you'll find milk, water, beer and wine.

- Very big shopping mall Colombo next to metro station Luz (blue line). Also large Fun Center at the top floor. Other mall Vasco da Gama next the metro station Oriente (red line).

- If you are a member of Regus business world and need to work a little bit (or print boarding passes), there is an office just in the corner of Avenida Liberdade and Rua das Pretas.

- Eyewitness travel guide Lisbon (available in different languages) is great.

Excellent Base for Visiting Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week at this lovely apartment in Lisbon. The apartment is on a steep hill five minutes walk (down hill) to Avenide Liberade but we found that taxis were inexpensive and used to get a taxi home in the evening after we had done our shopping (euro5 from main railway station where there is a good Pingo Doce supermarket).

The apartment does not look much from the outside but the inside more than makes up for this as it has been renovated to the highest standards and is very comfortable with all equipment being of the highest quality. The beds are very comfortable and there is constant hot water it is also very clean.

Being met at the airport by Antonio was most welcoming and he was very kindly drove around trying to find a shop where we could by some milk which was not easy at 9pm on a Sunday but he found some where and as we were not returning to the airport at the end of our week he agreed to take us to the car hire office.

The transport system in Lisbon is excellent and very inexpensive- buy a 24 hour pass and you will get your money back with one ride on an elevator.Also don't miss the World famous pastry shop in Belem even if you have to wait for a table.

There was a problem with the light in the entrance to the building which did make the stairs dangerous at night as you could not see a thing and nothing was done about it during our stay and it would have been nice if some milk could have been provided for late night arrivals as had Antonio not been able to find a shop open it would have meant we would not have been able to have a drink when we arrived and we would have had to walk either up or down the steep hill in the morning as the supermarkets are either at the top or bottom of the hill that the apartment is half way up.

We did however have a great week in Lisbon and we will return again and would not hesitate to book this aprtment again in the future

Location! Location! Location!

Baixa, or downtown Lisbon, is the heart of the city. It is the main shopping and banking district that stretches from the riverfront to the Avenida da Liberdade, with streets named according to the shopkeepers and craftsmen who traded in the area.

It was completely rebuilt after the Great Earthquake of 1755 with streets flanked by uniform, neoclassical buildings. This was Europe's first great example of neoclassical design and urban planning, and one of the finest European architectural achievements of the age.

It remains an imposing district, with elegant squares, pedestrianized streets, cafes, and shops. Old tramcars, street performers, tiled Art Deco shopfronts, elaborately decorated pastry shops and street vendors.

Other Activities: Museums, Theaters, Castles

Golf: Lisbon, situated on the north banks of the River Tagus, the charm of Lisbon exists in its strong links to the past. Its renovated palaces, magnificent churches and an impressive castle mirror the city's rich cultural heritage. Its eclectic blend of neighborhoods, culture and architecture distinguish this capital city uniquely from the other European capitals and make it a truly fascinating and comprehensive city to visit.

A city set on seven hills, as the legend tells, with its cobble-stoned pavements and narrow streets full of Art Nouveau cafés promises a lot to discover. Most popular spots in Lisbon are; located around Rossio and Praça do Comércio, Baixa; situated on the hill around St. George’s Castle, Alfama and Mouraria; and set on Tagus River, Belém.

Lisbon also hosts a great number of remarkable museums of ancient and modern art, some of which are Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, National Museum of Contemporary Art, National Coach Museum, Berardo Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art and Carmo Archaeological Museum. But, Lisbon isn't all culture and history; Bairro Alto is the center of nightlife with various restaurants and bars where melancholic traditional Portuguese music, Fado, can also be listened.

When tired of sight-seeing, shopping in Lisbon will take all your tiredness away! The biggest shopping mall in Iberian Peninsula, Centro Commercial Colombo, will offer you innumerous options. For those who prefer to shop in local markets, there is a fascinating flea market at the Campo de Santa Clara.

The best way to discover Lisbon is to get lost in its narrow streets and up and down roads! Every narrow street will tell you a different story and every story will reach to your heart easily!
