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!

Great one month's stay

  • 4 of 5

Our one month's stay was a very rewarding experience. We recommend this situation, location and city to any and all (with one restriction, one needs to be able to climb stairs and manage the hilly and cobbled terrain of Lisbon proper, it would be rough on baby stroller's and wheel chairs) The flat was well appointed with all that we needed for our comfort and daily explorations into the city and beyond. The location turned out to be very workable for us, groceries, wine shops, public transport, museums, restaurants, banks, parks and nightlife are all within easy reach.

Our hosts were very enjoyable, reliable and helpful when needed.Ciao. Ramon F.

This Place Has it All

  • 5 of 5

1. View (overlooking the rooftops of Lisbon)

2. Neighborhood (Chiado is old, hip, but non-touristy, accessible to everything)

3. Accommodation (Apartment is clean, comfortable, well-appointed)

4. Owner (Jorge lives right upstairs, and is entirely friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to help)

5. Country (Portugal is interesting, beautiful, safe, and reasonable)

We were here for the week of Christmas, and had a time that was as memorable as it was enjoyable. Certainly much of of the credit belongs to Lisbon, a city that hasn't been spoiled by its own success, but a big thank-you goes to Jorge & Francoise and his apartment, comfortable and well-located in a historic neighborhood that is convenient to everything-- the market, the train station, and shopping. we can't imagine a more perfect base for visiting Lisboa.

Great view

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment that is well equipped for our 6 days in Lisbon. Luisa met us with the keys and answered some questions we had. Close walk to restaurants and shops. Jorge even touched base with us via e-mail, even though he was out of town, to see how we were making out.

Comfortable stay in the heart of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 12 night stay in this wonderful apartment, located in the heart of the Santa Catarina area of Lisbon. Although one must climb 3 flights of stairs before reaching the apartment (no elevator), you are rewarded with a very clean, well equipped, tastefully decorated, modern apartment that has beautiful sunset views! Apartment is close to transportation, within walking distance to major attractions and close to many family owned restaurants. Jorge, the owner is very responsive to emails and stopped by to introduce himself once I arrived. My friends rented another 1 bedroom apartment 5 mins. away but wished they had found this place first as they loved the peacefulness and views this apartment offered! Highly recommend this place!!
