A special note from your host:
In 2007 looking for a place to buy, I found "the house", at the time it was the studio of a sculptor and originally a coach house from a building, facing the main street on the way up to Saint George's castle. The coach house from the 18th century was completely abandoned, but the decision to rebuilt it was taken due to its beauty.
During two years the designers carefully brought the building up to the most modern standards without destroying the ancient brick ceilings, stone sinks and arched doorways, mixing it all up with contemporary furniture, lovely fabrics and pastel colors, giving a particularly restful feeling to the atmosphere. And the apartment was open to the public in 2012.
It was a" journey" for us to rebuilt the place for you, we hope you enjoy your stay in Lisbon and in the house, as much as we enjoyed our "journey".

Comment: We were so thrilled with our accommodation it was everything and more. What was advertised was delivered and to our great joy breakfast was included with lovely surprises left each day in a linen bag, (croissants and sour dough) and ham and cheese, yoghurt and fruit. We were spoilt with washing done and servicing each day which also was unexpected. Our host is also a guide of Lisbon (soon to retire) and this gave us a huge advantage to discover more in Lisbon. Certainly would recommend to anyone who wants to be part of the old town and experience true hospitality.
About the Neighbourhood
Your Lisbon home is located in between the old
Lisbon historic village and the commercial downtown area, perfect walking distance to both! (Your host will provide you an area map). Directly in front of the house is the old
Roman theatre (worth a visit), the river Tagus on
your right hand side and straight up the hill is the cities most famous attraction the 16thC Sao Jorge Castelo
breathtaking views of the city. From here go down to Alfama
district, the most typical Lisbon neighbourhood, a colorful and cobblestone labyrinthine of alleyways, typical bars to have a 'Ginginha' - a local cherry liquor - and listen to 'Fado' songs playing in one of many restaurants or bars. We recommedn enjoying a drink at sunset at Portas do Sol before diner in one of many lively restaurants near your home. From your home you can also reach easily shopping areas 'Rossio' and 'Baixa-Chiado'.

- Feira da Ladra - weekend flea market, passing the national Pantheon building along the way (climb to the top for amazing city views) 15mins - MAP
- Pois Cafe - our fave little cafe in Lisbon, lined with bookshelves, in a converted old stone factory building, delicious, friendly and good value, 5mins - MAP
