I'm renting out one nicely sized apartment with lots of light and direct access to a balcony for short vacation stay in the heart of Lisbon. The apartment has one large bedroom with a lovely river/bridge view (25th April bridge), one sunny eating area and a bathroom. It is perfect for two people (max.) sharing the same bed.
It has full cooking facilities, including a gas stove, an electrical oven, a fridge, a microwave oven, a coffee maker, a kettle, a toaster and all the cooking gear you might ever need! Tea and sugar are provided free of charge.
The apartment is very quiet as it is located on a dead-end street. The exception to this is June, when there are popular celebrations in several neighborhoods throughout the city, so expect some street noise during the weekends of June, in particular in the eve of the 13th, when everyone hits the street for sardines, grilled pork and lots of beer! The apartment can be a wonderful point to watch and explore the festivities, if you’re not planning on sleeping early that night! Again – this is only during the month of June, all other times are very quiet!
The apartment has heating and a small fan, wireless high-speed Internet connection, cable tv with plenty of international channels. The bedroom is equipped with a huge (100cm/42in) LCD TV and cd/dvd player and loudspeakers that you can connect directly to your i-device. You will be sleeping on a comfortable futon.
The apartment and building were recently renovated (July 2014) but be mindful that it is an old building (mid 1800s) with all the charm and quirkiness that comes with that :)
Towels and shower gel/shampoo are provided, so no need to bring any of that. There are plenty of Lisbon and Portugal maps and touristic information in the apartment for guests to use.
Warning: this is a 4th floor walk-up, so not fitted for people with mobility impairments! (good workout for those who are not, though! :)
Drop a line if you have any questions! I will be very happy to reply :)
