Beef & Frog Ground floor apt
About the home
We are the owners and managers of this fantastic central base from which to explore Lisbon city and charge no extras eg cleaning or check-in supplements. Our 1 bed apartment is on the ground floor of our Beef & Frog building, which will give you a chance to experience a taste of what it's like to live in a traditional Portuguese Bairro (we're the next street up from where Fado singer Amália Rodrigues was born), where everyone knows everyone, small family restaurants are the norm, and where little independent shops still exist. We take pride in what we do and look forward to welcoming you to Lisbon should you opt to stay with us. For more information please feel free to contact us and we'll do our best to help. We love living here, "Beef" is English and "Frog" is French, hence our rather unusual name ;-).
Within a 10 minute walking radius, you can enjoy the beautiful views from the "jardim de Torrel", see ducks at park Campo martires da Pátria, go shopping in the baixa, reach Rossio station to take a train to Sintra, or catch the 28 tram for a tour around the city. Within 15 minutes you can be in Bairro Alto renowned for its restaurants and nightlife or be catching a train to Cascais with a choice of beaches on the way.

Please feel free to ask as many questions as you like, and yes we do take PayPal :-). It's generally easier for us to respond by email as we are often out and about, and mobile phone reception is sometimes not the best. We've been living in Lisbon for several years now and love it here, and would like you to make the most of this wonderful city whilst you are on holiday.
We're also committed to donating €5 of every booking to benefit our local area or particular residents as we believe that everyone has the capacity to make a difference.

The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region
Lisbon is an amazing city. Modern areas such as Expo with cutting edge architecture, contrast with centuries old areas like Alfama and the Baixa. The city is filled with museums and churches, small shops that sell almost anything that you can imagine for daily living as well as modern shopping centres where Portuguese and international brands are present.
The magnificent beaches of the Costa Caparica are a short car ride away, and the town beaches along the coast from Lisbon to Cascais are easily accessible by train from Cais do Sodré train station.
The popular towns of Sintra, Óbidos, Mafra, Sesimbra and Setubal are relatively near by and with a fast train you can be in Porto in a little over 3 hours.
The Lisbon / Central Lisbon area
Central Lisbon is a relatively small area that we believe is best discovered on foot, combined with using public transport (a day pass for bus, metro & tram costs around €5) although local taxis are still a cheap option when your feet can't take any more.
A word of caution, those beautiful smooth cobbled pavements that abound in Lisbon can be incredibly slippery, so avoid using shoes with smooth soles.
In terms of activities there is something for everyone, as you can combine visiting museums and historical monuments, with shopping, days on the beach, and nights in bars and discos which only really get going after midnight!
When you want a quick break, pastelarias are everywhere to tempt you with delicious cakes and strong coffees, or just sit with a cold beer or sparkling wine on a terrace and watch the world pass by. A must for us is the short return ferry ride from Cais do Sodre to Cascilhas to get the best view of Lisbon from over the water. We love Lisbon and hope that you will too.

I have recently come back from a 10 night stay in the apartment and cannot recommend it highly enough. Just about everything you can think of is supplied and most importantly spotlessly clean too.... more

Myself and 3 friends stayed at The Beef and Frog apartment earlier this month for our four night break in Lisbon and I cannot recommend this apartment enough. The apartment itself is a great place which met all of our needs and I can honestly say that it is well represented in the advertisement photographs, however it is even nicer in real life.
One concern for us before arriving might have been feeling a little cramped with the four of us in one apartment, however it never felt this way for us at all. It was very clean, modern, comfortable, with plenty of amenities. There were many small touches that Roland and Carlos had put into place which made us feel very welcome, such as info on places to visit, tea, coffee, cheese and even a bottle of wine in the fridge!
The location of the apartment is very central, close to tram stops and the train station which was handy for our day trip to Sintra. Something that really made our stay special was how much Roland and Carlos went out of their way to acquaint us with Lisbon and to help us enjoy our short time there. On arrival, we met Roland who welcomed us before showing us around the area we were staying. We can also thank them both for our experience of some truly scrumptious Portuguese food at a lovely restaurant on our last night which we would never have found if it were not for them!
If I were to return to Lisbon I would definitely return to The Beef and Frog. I would also recommend staying here to anyone visiting Lisbon...the value is incredible for what you get in return! Thank you Roland and Carlos! x

I stayed for 4 nights with three friends. The apartment, with two double beds, was the perfect size for the four of us, in a great location in the city. The apartment was was super clean and... more
