About Maria Cristina Vidal

My name is Maria Cristina Vidal, i was born in Lisbon and i love my city, where i studied History and Arts History, where i have some of my best friends and family. Nowadays , i live outside, at 25mn away.

Lisbon has an active lifestyle, but also light, cool, with many cultural offers and where we can be easily talking or take a walk with friends, near by the river or at any of the many nice city gardens.

The Expo area, the new orient zone, is perfect for all the open air activities, shopping, movies, and visits to the thematic pavillions, as the one of Knowlwdge and Science, and the great Oceanary, with some of the best aquatic world specimens.

Also by the rivershore, at 200mts straight away from the apartment, we can find all kind of activities, since nautic, at the Nautic Club in Belém, the sail boat trips, fishing, bycicles renting, segways, tuktuks, walks, horse cars, river cruises, to the pleasure of enjoying a relaxing sunset, in one of the many splanades across the city, listening any world music, or a good fado , our national song, in one of the tipic fado 'houses', or at the Fado Museum, where we can also have dinner, listening some of our best interpreters.

Lisbon has a very rich cultural and architecture patrinomy,showing traces still from it's greek foundation, also from all the different and many civilazations that cross this land and left their marks, till its most glorious epoch, when Portugal open its frontiers and made a vast empire, in the five continents.

Despite all the big natural catastrophies, the city reborned from the ashes, keeping many of the traces from the earlier civilazations.

Despite the fantastic and well preserved historic center, Lisbon is also a very modern and vibrant capital, with all the newest technologies, cultural life and health centers offers.

Maria Cristina Vidal purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Maria Cristina Vidal chose Bairro Alto

It's one of the most pleasent location of historical center, also near by the new hit night life fashion areas,(Pink Street, Docas, Cais do Sodré). It has also all the convenient stores aside, and the Chiado and Bairro Alto at 10/15mn. walking distance. The river shore is also at 200 mts away.

What makes this apartment unique

The building is an original prototype of the 'gaiola pombalina', a building technic appeared at the XVIII century, before the big earthquake in 1755, that destroied the most part of the city.

It has a lobby in stone, is spacious, with high ceilings, big door/windows with balconies, two original XVII century tail walls,wooden floors, and all the rest of materials are also original, even the glasses, hand made done.

Excellent apartment to stay in Lisbon!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was spacious, clean and central to all Lisbon has to offer. I highly recommend it. We were a party of 9 and had plenty of space. Maria Cristina was an excellent hostess. She made herself available if you had questions and gave excellent ideas of where and what to do while in Portugal. We loved our stay here and will definitely be back again!

A delightful home in a vibrant neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

Maria Cristina's apartment really is perfect for a larger group (we were 8) - very comfortable, cosy and home-like in feeling. It's in a great neighbourhood, full of cafes, local family run restaurants and quirky little shops. Maria herself was incredibly thoughtful - leaving a birthday cake (it was a trip to celebrate a big birthday), along with delicious croissants and bread for breakfast, wine and other essentials. We shall definitely be returning!

Amazing apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lisbon is wonderful;

But if the living conditions are not good, the vacation can be ruined;

the apartment is great; the rooms are bright, the kitchen is well-equipped and the bathrooms are cleaned;

everything looks like in photos; warm colors, neat furnishings; in the refrigerator we found everything for breakfast;

Maria Vidal is a great host; welcomed us, explained the places we had to visit, arranged the return to the airport.

Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
