About Isabel Garcia
I am a plastic artist in the area of painting and sculpture. I'm married to a plastic artist. We were born in Lisbon and studied at the School of Fine Arts in Lisbon.
Isabel Garcia purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why Isabel Garcia chose Estrela
I have 3 children who live and work abroad. I bought this apartment to welcome them when they come to Portugal. I live in Lisbon very close to this apartment so I can move on foot.
What makes this Apartment unique
I fell in love with this apartment because it was very close to my family home. It is located in an old quarter of Lisbon, within a closed condominium, with all security. The garage enchanted me. It is very useful. It is near the garden of the Palace of Necessities, which functions as Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It has on the street several restaurants of Portuguese food with great quality and low price.

Great host, apartment and location
The apartment was perfect for our stay in Lisbon. Secure, ground floor, modern apartment with garage included. Everything needed for a home away from home was provided. Close to a variety of transport options, mini marts, cafes and bars.
Most importantly, Isobel is a gracious host who provided lots of information on local amenities and did everything to ensure we enjoyed our stay.
Lindo y cómodo
Isabel y bruno tienen un departamento lindo y comodo. Tiene todo lo necesario para unas vacaciones geniales.
Gracias Ana! puedes venir siempre que lo quieras!
I recently brought my mom to Portugal for the first time to see the villages where her parents were born (Northern Portugal). We made this apartment in Lisbon our base location for 12 days. Isabel was very friendly and hospitable throughout our stay. After arranging a meet time she gave us a walk through of the apartment and a tour of the complex. She has everything you'll need including maps of local stores and points of interest. The apartment is clean and well organized. My mom is older and was concerned about our safety in a foreign country. The apartment is very safe with a security gate and apartment manager on-site to greet everyone that enters the complex on weekdays when the gate remains open. The kitchen and pantry are well stocked with all the supplies you'll need to cook and there are plenty of linens, towels and blankets. There was even a parking spot in the garage for our rental car. The apartment is a little too far from downtown to walk (for my mom anyways) but uber is inexpensive in Lisbon and there never seemed to be a shortage of cars available within the neighborhood. We ventured out of Lisbon often, from the apartment the freeway was close by and easily accessed. There was ample space for two people in the apartment which has a large private bathroom. Although it's designed like a studio, the kitchen/laundry are in a room separate from the main living area. If we ever came back I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!!!!
I was very pleased to meet these two charming ladies, very polite and nice. They left the apartment incredibly neat and clean. I hope you return soon, I will be happy to have you in my apartment again. Thank you Christi and Adelina!

El apartamento es estupendo y está muy bien equipado y decorado
La experiencia ha sido muy satisfactoria, si volvemos a Lisboa repetiremos sin duda. Además, viajamos con un bebé de 10 meses y el apartamento estaba perfectamente preparado con todo lo necesario para que nuestra estancia con el bebé fuera muy cómoda.
Eu, meu marido e minha filha ficamos hospedados 12 dias nesse apartamento maravilhoso, muito melhor do que nas fotos....com certeza voltaremos....moraria sem problema nenhum lá...fomos muito bem recepcionados por Bruno, filho da proprietária, super atencioso, em todo tempo que precisamos.
Foi uma estadia incrível...super recomendo esse apartamento.
