Studio | sleeps 2
Between Principe Real and Santos, a brand new apartment in a XVIIth century Palace. A few steps away from the São Bento Palace, the Portuguese Parliament House, between Santos and Bairro Alto, both major nightlife spots in Lisbon, and behind the frontage of a noble XVIIth century house, is hiding a well designed condominium of luxury studios.
If you chose the Flor da Murta apartment, you'll stay at a cosy and elegant studio, well located in the heart of the historical city, just take tram 28 passing by your windows and go uphill to the nearby Bairro Alto.
The Flor da Murta apartment is part of a condominium entirely rebuilt which kept the elegant façade of an ancient Palace of the historical centre, a place known as the residence of a courtesan of King D. João V. But from the building entrance onwards, everything is completely modern, with the ultimate XXIst century comfort.

Enjoy the calm of this residential area, at a walking distance of the typical and popular streets of Madragoa. You will both appreciate the charm of the cobbled streets of Santos and the immediate proximity of all the centres of interest of the Portuguese capital city. The Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga (National Museum of Ancient Art) is only a few hundred meters away and you are 6 stops by tram or bus away to Praça do Comercio, five minute walk to the river front. Santos is the new « Design » district of the city and is known for its multi-personality environments where in the same day you can be at the park, visit an Art Gallery, enjoy a nice meal by the river and dance all night in one of the many bars and night-clubs. Here the charming yellow tramways N°25 are still circulating. Many restaurants, cafés and Portuguese shops around and you can even experiment the Market of Ribeira a few minutes away, and buy there fresh fish debarked from Setubal or gorgeous fruits and vegetables.
