Located in Príncipe Real, a trendy and classy neighborhood, 5 to 10 minutes walking distance from the city’s historical centre, Chiado and Bairro Alto, this is a magnificent apartment, with a private garden and a private pool (with salt and not quimics), for up to 6 guests more 2 extra.
Quintinha Garden has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and an en suite master bedroom. Has large communal areas including a dining room and a living room with plenty of space, furnished with comfortable sofas and a large fireplace that will warm you up, followed by an office with an excellent working desk and a great collection of books for you to explore. The fully equipped kitchen includes 2 independent sinks and a large breakfast table.
The central heating system runs throughout the entire apartment and there is no need for air conditioning due to the thick walls, a perk of XVIII century buildings. The kitchen, dining room and all three bedrooms have windows/doors facing the terrace so there’s plenty of sunshine all day long.
If you are an architecture enthusiast you will enjoy the apartment’s dome shaped ceilings a characteristic of the epoch and tile work a typical trait of Portuguese culture.
The terrace has a great table for meals, and the garden, covered in green grass, has several flowerbeds of flowers and climbers, such as jasmine, rosemary and bougainvillea. There is also a big red pepper tree from where you can pick pepper for cooking. The swimming pool, surrounded by reclining chairs and outdoor sofas is large enough to accommodate all 8 guests for a delightful lunch and day at the pool.
