Overview

Santa Catarina Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Fully equipped 2 bedroom with 2 bathroom and a large terrace in St. Catherine

This charming and exclusive fully equipped two bedroom apartment each one with its private bathroom has also a separate dining and living rooms. In addition, it offers you a fantastic 25 sqm terrace for outdoor meals allowing you to get some sun or enjoy a refreshing shower on the warmer days.

We offer you a luxury service giving you the feeling of living in the heart of the historic Lisbon in a quiet and genuine neighborhood enjoying Portuguese hospitality and the authentic city life (Bairro Alto and Chiado).

The apartment is situated in the historical neighborhood of Santa Catarina bearing a unique charm famous for its Palaces, Churches and its scenic belvedere also know by “Adamastor” the Sea Monster.

Situated in a quiet street, however within a walking distance from theaters, museums restaurants, coffees and its famous esplanades, viewpoints, shopping and commercial centers, services and many other attractions, the apartment is very near from the trendy Bairro Alto and the chic Chiado, which for many are considered the most emblematic and central locations in Lisbon.

Within 5 minutes walking, you will be in the heart of the night life neighborhood – Bairro Alto – where you can find both traditional and more sophisticated restaurants, outdoor cafes, bars, second hand clothing, record shops, book stores and art galleries (further details on its more than 250+ commerce shops, restaurants, bars, discotheques, art galleries and museums could be seen at www.ilovebairroalto.com). A bit further you are at the center of the chic Chiado (wealthiest area in Lisbon).

Close to all types of transportation, from the apartment you can easily reach the famous tram 28 that would take you to all the important sites such as Basílica da Estrela, Palácio de São Bento (parliament), Praça do Comércio (largest square in Europe) and up to the Castelo de São Jorge (St. George’s Castle) or just connect you with the underground station at Baixa Chiado. Glória, Bica and Santa Justa Elevators are also on a walking distance, so you don´t need a car to make your way in Lisbon.

Rossio station is also within a close distance, where you can catch the train until last stop at Sintra classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sintra).

Situated just a few blocks away from the apartment towards the river, you will find Cais do Sodré station, from where you can take the ferry to cross the Tagus river to Cacilhas for the shrine of Christ King or the trains to Estoril famous for its casino, the Palace Hotel where James Bond Movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1969 was taped with its finest beaches or until the last stop to Cascais which was former fishing village that gained fame as a resort for Portugal's royal family in the late 19th century and early 20th century and that during the World War II has became home to many of the exiled wealthy families of Europe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cascais).

In the apartment, you will also find city maps and additional tips regarding the monuments, museums, restaurants, night life, Fado houses, beaches and what’s going on in Lisbon.

The Perfect Place to Fall in Love with Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment in a unique location- becoming somewhat more gentrified- it still retains an air of authenticity and old world charm. Close to Barrio Alto, it is near a beautiful viewpoint, across from the Pharmacy Museum. The apartment is excellently appointed-and the patio is the perfect place to while away a summer's evening. Perhaps the best feature is the wonderful hospitality from Fatima and Miguel, who were so generous and conscientious in their attention to detail and our every need. They made us feel so welcome in their city, and clearly have such a love for where they live that it is infectious. It is a bit of a climb to get to and from the apartment, however the taxis are inexpensive and can drop you very near the location.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely. Once we learned how to unlock the door everything went very smoothly. The location was perfect for walking to sights and restaurants. We really enjoyed our evening wine in the enclosed patio area. Miguel made us feel very welcome. We really appreciated the taxi from the airport and to our car rental company. Thank you for making the arrangements.

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in Lisbon was ideal because it was central to the major districts of Bairro Alto and Chiado that we found fascinating.

It was safe, clean, comfortable and very home like with all the amenities that we needed as advertised.

After our days of sight-seeing, shopping and experiencing culinary restaurants and bars this apartment was a haven where we relaxed for our next day's adventure.

We would certainly return to Lisbon and definitely stay here again.

The owners Fatima and Miguel were very welcoming, informative and kept in contact with us which made our stay in Portugal more enjoyable.

A beautiful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

I can only echo all of the positive comments of the previous reviews. My wife and I spent five nights in Fatima's beauiful apartment at the end of our trip, and we couldn't have chosen a more comfortable and convenient spot to finish. Fatima was great with pre-arrival communications, and husband Miguel met us on arrival, and gave us a thorough introduction to both the apartment and Lisbon. There is everything you could need, and more, at the apartment, and it has a very comfortble, homey feel to it. Prior to booking, I debated about whether to stay in the Baixa core, or up in the Bairro Alto, where this apartment is located. After wandering in the Baixa one evening, I was glad I chose the Alto! So many restaurants and bars, and so much more to do at night. I'd book this place without a doubt if I ever return to Lisbon!

Lovely in Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment in a great location. The owners are very responsive and easy to deal with. The apartment is nicely furnished and everything works very well. The apartment is very clean, the wifi works very well and the kitchen is reasonably stocked - excellent coffee machine and a wall of wine to choose from. All of the appliances work well (washer/dryer, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, air conditioner/heater, tv). The back patio is a great place to enjoy some rest and wine. The owners have thoughtfully provided good tourist information and are personally very informative. Check in and check out were good. We enjoyed the restaurant across the street and indeed many of the restaurants in the neighbourhood. I stayed here a month and would stay again. Highly recommended.
