According to legend, Lisbon was founded by Ulisses. It derives from “Olissipo” a word which in turn has its origin in the Phoenician words “Allis Ubbo”, - “Charming Harbour”.

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to visit Lisbon, with the Tejo River at its heart. Stay in my XIX century apartment, situated in one of the most important districts in this city. Share its history, its heritage, its cultural diversity and most importantly meet the local people – The 'Lisboetas'.

In the “Bairro de Santa Catarina”, you will be able to enjoy the atmosphere experienced by famous figures who lived in this neighbourhood: Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, better known as Marques de Pombal (prime minister during the reign of D. José I); Manuel Maria Barbosa du Bocage, Almeida Garrett, Alexandre Herculano, Camilo Castelo Branco and Ramalho Ortigão (Portugueses Writers of 18th – 20th century).

Prime location:

You will be staying in a quiet area next to one of the neighbourhoods that is most popular with both locals and tourists. The 'Miradouro de Santa Catarina'. Here you will be able to appreciate the stunning view over The Tejo River. Go up or down the hill in the Bica lift, and enjoy the local restaurants, bars and shops. You will be: just a short walk away from the city centre, however, in a calm area where you can rest; 1 minute from the famous Number 28 tram, that connects Campo de Ourique to Martim Moniz (and circles the city); just 10 minutes from the metro and/or the train station that connects Lisbon to both Cascais and Sintra; only 5 minutes away from the meeting place where the Lisboetas (locals) begin the night with a good dinner and later move on to the nearby heart of Lisbon nightlife “The Bairro Alto”.

Furthermore you are just 20 min walk from The Bairro de Alfama, where you can visit the famous “Castle of São Jorge”.

The apartment:

The apartment is set in a 19th century building, which was entirely rebuilt in 2013. The apartment has a sitting room, kitchen, bathroom with double and/or single bed. It has a maximum capacity for 6 adults (2 places on the sofa) and the kitchen is fully equipped (microwave, cooker, oven, washing machine, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, coffee machine, toaster, magic wand, electric kettle…). The bathroom has a shower and hair-dryer. All sheets and towels are provided and are changed every week. The flat has full Internet access, wi-fi, cable television (with International channels) and a dock station.


I want you to feel at home. This apartment was designed and decorated with you in mind.

We sincerely hope you enjoy Lisbon, this wonderful city, to the maximum.

Lisboa - Bairro de Santa Catarina


No Bairro de Santa Catarina, você poderá desfrutar da atmosfera vivida pelos famosos que habitaram nesta freguesia: Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, mais conhecido por Marques de Pombal (primeiro ministro durante o reinado de D. José I); Manuel Maria Barbosa du Bocage, Almeida Garrett, Alexandre Herculano, Camilo Castelo Branco e Ramalho Ortigão (escritores portugueses do século XVIII - XX).

Ficará alojado num bairro tranquilo junto a um dos bairros importantes de Lisboa – Bairro Alto, a uns passos de um dos miradouros mais apreciados pelos Lisboetas e turistas – Miradouro de Santa Catarina – onde poderá apreciar uma vista fantástica sobre o Rio Tejo, descer/subir a colina através do elevador da Bica, cheio de restaures, bares e lojas. Ficará a um passo da agitação da cidade, no entanto, num espaço tranquilo onde poderá descansar.

A um minuto do Eléctrico 28, o famoso eléctrico que liga Campo de Ourique ao Martim Moniz e a 10 minutos do Metro e dos Comboios para Cascais (no Cais do Sodré) e Sintra (Restauradores). Apenas necessita de 5 minutos para estar no ponto de encontro dos lisboetas para começar a noite com um bom jantar e mais tarde estará no coração da noite Lisboeta, o Bairro Alto. Para entrar no bairro de Alfama, de mãos dadas com o Castelo de São Jorge, basta caminhar por 20 minutos.
