Back again for another great week in Sta Caterina

  • 5 of 5

The flat has a lovely outlook and ambience and so convenient for the surrounding areas. Luisa met us on our arrival and reminded us of the facilities. We did have some poor weather this time but the flat was cozy with the radiators. There are several Lisbon guides and books in many languages to read.

Food shops are on Calcada da Combro - a short walk up past the Miradouro, The Frutas shop just past the funicular, stocks much more than just fruit -milk cheese bread (cheaper than Mercado). Pasteleria is on the corner to Calcada perfect Pastel de Nato .

There's a quick way down to the Cais de Sodre (main station for Cascais and Estoril and metro Green line) it's easier than walking to Baixa-Chiado metro. You can visit the market with food centre down there very easily. Try the small local cafe at the bottom of the Travessa Alcaide street for lunch (spot the chalk board if they are open) can be very busy with local trade

The View Tells The Story...

  • 5 of 5

...Beyond amazing... this clean, comfortable apartment in the the hub of Barro Alto is great for 2 people. The view from the 3rd floor apartment took our breath away! We are in our 60's and way out of shape...but once we got our luggage up the 4 flights of stairs (ugh!)... we were on our way to a great "work out" week. Everything you need is walkable, and Taxi's were honest and generally speaking, under 10 euros to get anywhere. We felt very safe, and found the hosts and "locals" very helpful. The kitchen is basically equiped with salt, pepper, olive oil, tea etc. (Ask Jorge how to use the stove top). Shower is modern (bring soap & shampoo),bed is firm and comfortable. Bring electic converters if needed... but most of all bring yourselves to this wonderful, magical city and this lovely apartment in paradise.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful apartment at the end of October. It exceeded our expectations in every way and was in a perfect location, being a close walk to all the restaurants and bars. The apartment is very quiet at night and provided a peaceful haven after exploring bustling Lisbon on foot. The view from the balcony is spectacular!

Jorge, Francoise and Luisa were a pleasure to deal with from the time of booking through to the day we left.

I would definately recommend this apartment to friends and family looking for a quiet, attractive apartment in the heart of Lisbon.

Fabulous apartment with awesome views over the city

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect apartment for our first visit to Lisbon. It didn't take long for us to find our way around, we were perfectly placed for local transport but spent most of our time exploring on foot. The apartment was comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay, and it made a real difference to have a shower that actually worked properly! Both Luisa, who welcomed us on our arrival, and Francoise who came to say goodbye, were lovely generous people and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this for your first, and subsquent visits!

Fantastic introduction to Lisboa!

  • 5 of 5

There is simply no downside to this beautiful apartment. The location, view, amenities, decor, and general hospitality of the hosts were superb. Though the weather was hot on several days of our stay, we remained very comfortable. The large windows/doors provided us not only spectacular views, but also access to the continuous river/bay breezes.

The location could not have been more centrally located. We were a 5-minute walk to the metro and an easy walk to the water and to other neighborhoods. Bookstores (a great one right around the corner), cafes, restaurants, and shops were all within short reach.

Thanks to Jorge and Françoise for providing a wealth of material on the area (and the library!) and for being so easy to communicate with. Though we unfortunately did not get to meet them, we were very well taken care of by Luisa.

We highly recommend this property and should we ever make it back to Lisbon, hope to stay there again.

Couchers de soleil et vue sur Lisbonne magnifiques!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été charmés par Lisbonne et ses environs. Nous avons particulièrement aimé notre visite à Belem au musée des cochers et au Mosteiro dos Jeronimos. Sintra est également à ne pas manquer ainsi que le Palacio Nacional da Pena. Nous avons adoré notre excursion «Arrabida wine tour», au cours de laquelle nous avons fait 2 dégustations de vin.

L'appartement est fort bien situé dans le quartier animé Bairro Alto. Nous avons beaucoup marché et pris les trams pour visiter les quartiers environnants. Merci aux propriétaires et à Luisa pour son accueil chaleureux!
