The Casa do Castelo apartment has a 50m2 surface in the ground floor of a small old-time building. It is a completely renovated flat where you can comfortably stay with family or friends up to 4 people.
To access your apartment you'll have to go up to the narrow streets of the Castelo district. It is located in a quiet area during night but a pretty busy place during day, that's only because you're staying next to the most visited monument of Lisbon.
It's like staying in a small village where all the neighbors know each other and the doors are always open. Don't strange if you start hear some Fado, the Portuguese traditional music. In the surrounding area you'll find lots of places where you can enter and get astonished by the sound of it.
You'll also have during your stay a dossier with a lot of suggestions of places to visit, museums, restaurants and terraces to relax.

Siamo stati quattro giorni in questo appartamento nei pressi del castello, carino, pulito, molto silenzioso, proprietari gentilissimi.
Collegata al centro da un bus molto frequente e puntuale e da un elevador che scende nel quartiere Baxia.

Amazing location to spend a break in a beautiful city.
The flat is compact & well equipped- Rui & Sonia were extremely accommodating to our needs for a travel cot. The info pack was also extremely useful.
probably best suited to those without young children as the walk down to the main centre square can be tiring for them on the hills and cobbled streets

"Wonderful local location."
We greatly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean and remodeled with IKEA kitchen and furnishings. It was small for our 3 week stay, but perfect size for a shorter visit. Some construction noise, but that is hard to avoid in a city and may be complete by now. The location is on the hill by St George Castle in a quiet local neighborhood that we enjoyed walking around. A small market and restaurant around the corner for convenience. Also we stopped almost daily at Pingo Doce grocery store for fresh bread and fruit on way back from sightseeing. The store's building has a free elevator to take you up most the hill. Overall, my husband and I very much enjoyed our stay and appreciated Rui's assistance with getting settled into the apartment and Lisboa. We recommend his apartment for those that prefer a quiet, local and wonderful experience.

"Great location - tiny studio"
Rui & Sónia were very helpful and the studio had everything we needed. It is small though, it would be tight for 4 people to stay in! The bathroom is tiny. Having said that, for the two of us it was great! There is a nice little supermarket within easy walking distance to buy food.
