About Madalena Zaki

Portuguese, born in Lisbon, I find life here very diverse. Lisbon enchants me; the light, the sea and the beach. The cultural events are multiple and with an enormous quality.

Madalena Zaki purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Madalena Zaki chose Lisbon District

Lisbon is a historic capital, a cosmopolitan with character and charm out of the ordinary, where 800 years of diverse cultural influences mingle with the latest trends and current lifestyles, creating truly spectacular contrasts. Along the Tagus, Bethlehem is the Lisbon neighborhood more representative of the Portuguese Discoveries. The big step of Portuguese expansion was achieved in 1498 when Vasco da Gama (Mosteiro dos Jeronimos) discovered the sea route to India. So it was the beginning of the Golden Age of Lisbon, characterized by the Manueline style, created by the monarch of the time, Dom Manuel I and decorated marine motifs. Lisbon has grown throughout the centuries and changed naturally. At the beginning of the Age of Discoveries, Lisbon was expanded, becoming an important center for trade in jewelry and spices (Commerce Square). Later, when the city was destroyed by the Earthquake of 1755, the Marquis of Pombal (tomb in the church's Memorial) was responsible for the rebuilding; creating the 'Pombaline' neighborhood trader that still retains much of its original layout. At this time the King has changed his residence to the Ajuda Palace, which is located in a side street to the apartment. The light in Bethlehem is incredible, as indeed in most of the city, because the Portuguese pavement. This is a Lisbon area where many people spend their leisure time: dining and sunbathing, resting or playing sports or cultural activities. Although Bethlehem has a lot of visiting, the apartment is located in a quiet residential area. In front of the building there is a free park to park the car.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has beautiful views over the Tagus in a key area in the history of Portuguese maritime discoveries. Near the center of Lisbon, and with great transport links, the apartment is located in a residential area calm. Also close to beaches and places where you can soak up the sun or taste a coffee, a glass of wine, fish or 'pastel de nata'. Tropical garden next door.

The apartment is very pleasant and comfortable, well decorated and well equipped , and quiet! Madalena was a wonderful host, answering quickly and reliably my emails and questions.

Loved this Belém Apartment... A Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I happen to live near Lisbon, but I was looking for a place to host some friends visiting Portugal for a week that would be much closer to the city center as well as central to some of the towns we would be visiting like Cascais and Sintra. Belém was the ideal location! I choose the apartment because it looked newly renovated, clean, and tastefully furnished from the pictures. It turned out to be all that and more. One does have to go up 2 flights of stairs, which didn't bother us a bit, and one is greeted by a very cozy and clean apartment with new kitchen appliances and everything one would need for a small group of travelers. We did have a car, and parking in front of the building was never a problem. Madelena was an absolute joy to meet, and super helpful in making sure our stay was perfect... Obrigado por tudo, Madalena!!

Downtown Lisbon is about 10min by tram/eléctrico (15E) ...and there is also a bus stops right around the corner from the apartment. Both Sintra and Cascais are about 25 min away by car. (unless you take the longer, scenic coastal road) Finally, the small town of Belém itself is beautiful with so much to see and do... it was less than a 7min walk down the hill to the town center. The town is a perfect home base to visit sites in and around Lisbon in my opinion, and I would highly recommend this very clean Belém apartment with views of the Tejo river!

Sehr empfehlenswert und volle Punktzahl

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren über Weihnachten 2016 bei Madalena Zaki und Familie zu Gast und können es nur weiterempfehlen.

Wir wurden sehr freundlich von Tomas Zaki empfangen, welcher uns alles zeigte und erklärte. Als Gastgeschenk standen Wein, Kekse und Schokolade bereit. Die Ferienwohnung liegt im Stadtteil Belem mit einem herrlichen Ausblick auf den Tejo. Obwohl die Wohnung sehr zentral liegt (zu den ÖPNV waren es nur ca. 500 m), war es doch sehr ruhig. Die Wohnung liegt in einem schönen, gepflegten Haus und verfügt über ein Wohn/Esszimmer, sowie über 2 Schlafzimmer. Die Wohnung ist sehr gut und vor allem liebevoll ausgestattet . Die Betten waren sehr bequem und alles was man für den täglichen Gebrauch benötigte war in umfangreicher Anzahl und Qualität vorhanden. Sehr hilfreich war auch eine Mappe, welche Busfahrpläne, Ausflugstipps und weitere Informationen beinhaltete.

Hervorheben möchten wir aber noch, dass es sich bei der Fewo-Vermieter Familie Zaki um sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Menschen handelt und wir Interessenten diese Ferienwohnung nur ans Herz legen können.
