Apartment with balcony in Estrela heart & unique chance to see the river view
June is Lisbon's month, did you know?
Welcome to Estrela Home in 28 tram Route!
Why this apartment?
Located in Estrela-Lapa one of the most charming neighborhoods of Lisbon, and recently designated as the Design district, this apartment is not only the perfect setting to explore the city center, but also here you'll find the peace you'll need to rest after a night out ;-)
Here you will find a very well equipped apartment with a large living room, perfect for enjoying great home cooked meals with fresh products from traditional local shops and with the option of buying bio products: vegetables, fruits and bread.
The kitchen is very well equipped with all the necessary appliances, plus with the present disposition of the space you can easily prepare a meal and chat while enjoying a glass of wine.
The apartment has two beedrooms with two large closets. One has a double bed and the other has two single beds with the option to place them together as the bedside is common for both beds.
The bathroom is also very well equipped with hair dryer, shaving mirror and bath and hand towels. You can expect to find a bathtub and some consumable hygiene stock.
This flat is children’s friendly and is a great place for families of 4 or five as the fifth is also possible to host (with an extra cost).
We can also provide a baby travel bed and linens, as well as a “marsupial” if you wish to go around the city with your baby. There will be available in the flat a football to play in the Estrela garden and some toddlers books and toys.
The apartment door is 5mts away from the 28 Route Tram stop / 2 min from the Estrela garden, the place to rest at the end of the day while lying on the grass and sunbathing with your children enjoying the playground / 2 min from the Basilica / 5 min from the Parliament / 5 min from The Amalia Museum (Fado) / 10 min from the green area of Tapada das Necessidades and also from one of the most emblematic and charming neighborhoods of Lisbon - Campo de Ourique, where you will find several other points of interest among the house of Fernando Pessoa (Portuguese writer), Prazeres Cemetery and Campo de Ourique Market.
From Estrela and if you are a fan of walking you can easily go to Amoreiras towers that became a Lisbon's icon with it's bold Architecture. If you are not afraid of heights, you can go to the top and enjoy the 360 panoramic view of Lisbon and the Tagus river. From here you can also visit the Lisbon's Aqueduct, built in the 16th century or go to Rato square and follow to Principe Real neighboorhood where you can visit the marvellous viewpoint of São Pedro de Alcântara. From here you can follow to Chiado and Downtown.
After you get to know Lisbon and it's charming streets and colorful buildings we will be very happy to take you on an unique experience that will allow you to see the other side of Lisbon and make you understand why after months in sea, Portuguese sailors desired with such a passion to return to Lisbon. We'll take you sailing across the river, from Belém tower to the National Pantheon on our boat! This will, for sure, give you memories to cherish for a lifetime! If you wish to sail into Cascais, this is also a great bet! You'll love it Let's go! (not included)

About Maria Pinto
I'm a retired chemistry teacher living in Estrela for almost 40 years. This is one of the best places to live in Lisbon or for a short stay as it's right in the heart of the city. Today, I spend my time traveling and taking care of my dog, also retired from chasing other dogs and pigeons ;-) in Estrela garden, as she is a Labrador with 14 years old! I love to travel and meet new people and cultures. Me and my daughter Joana, pay special attention to all of our guests and provide all information or support you might need, so that you can enjoy Lisbon&Tagus river, cause they are really a "one of a kind" duet!
Maria Pinto purchased this Apartment in 1978
Why Maria Pinto chose Lapa
If you want to feel what a "lisboeta" (a local habitant of Lisbon) feels like, this is the place to stay. Here you'll wake up in the morning and listen to the sound of 28 Tram in the street. You can also enjoy breakfast on the balcony and walk into the Estrela Garden to get some coffe while enjoing the pleasure of walking bare feet in the grass! During summer months you can also have the lucky to enjoy a Jazz festival (MEO Out Jazz) that takes place in Estrela garden and brings a very ecletical and young audience. There is no better place to feel like home!

Best hosts !
We were in Lisboa for 3 days and stayed at Joana and Maria's place. Simply wonderful. The appartement was perfect for the four of us. Well furnished, well equiped, very very clean, beddings were extremely confortable and neet, we had access to this nice balcony to have our coffee in the morning. Our hosts were fantastik. But the best of all is for sure the location. This place is walking distance of everything; wether you want to explore the old neighborhood of Alfama or dine and dance in Bairro Alto it is very easy and accessable. Our experience was WOW and as I speak for myself I know for sure that when I go back to Lisboa (cause I will), I, for sure, will rent again this appartment. Loved it! thank's again Joana and Maria !

Thank you for choosing us to be your hostesses in this little corner of Lisbon, our apartment Estrela Home. Let us share with you that after your stay we became to realize that more than receiving new people, from other countries in a foreign city, we were trying to give them, or to give you, something that is precious and priceless… happiness! We are grateful for the opportunity that you gave. Thank you for being happy! We will be waiting to see your smile a next time :-))

The place is very good.
Me and my family stay in this beautiful apartment for 4 days when we travel to Portugal, place was really nice and everything we need was there. Close to everything. Beds was so comfortable. But what was most important that owner and her daughter met us inside, show and explain where to go and where to eat, what to see, and give us a bottle of wine as a gift. Very nice and lovely people, Thank you very much for your hospitality.
Just arrived home after 5 nights at Maria & Joanna’s beautiful home. Beautifully furnished, very clean with comfortable beds.
