About the Graça District

The Graça district is full of local character and offers visitors an authentic flavour of the real Lisboa. You're never too far away from an authentic pasteleria (cake shop) or restaurant. It perches on the hillside to the northeast of the city, and offers some of the most panoramic views over Lisbon.

There are two main spots to take in the vista: Miradouro da Graça, and Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte, both within easy walking distance of the apartment. Miradouro da Graçais close to the thirteenth century Graça church, with a splendid terrace and open-air cafe which is open late into the evening in summer months. The Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte offers equally stunning views and is the highest point in the city.

Graça also plays home to one of the oldest flea markets in Lisbon, Feira da Ladra, which takes place every Tuesdays and Saturdays at campo Santa Clara, and is just a 10 minute walk from the holiday apartment.

The district is served by elétrico 28, a vintage yellow tram which is almost a tourist attraction in its own right!The tram #28 route takes in many of Lisbon's tourist sites and connects the apartment withSão Jorge castle, the Miradouro Portas do Soland the Alfama, Mouraria, Bairro Alto districts.

About Lisbon

Lisbon is a big city, but is easy to get around. The great location of this apartment is ideal for seeing Lisbon's sights, thanks to the great transport connections.

As well having Tram #28 on the doorstep, the apartment is less than 5 minutes walk from the nearest metro stop: Anjos.

Rossio Central Square is a ten minute metro journey away and, from there,you can walk to the Castle of St. Jorge in under 10 minutes, or onto the atmospheric and Moorish-influenced Alfama neighborhood. Chiado and Barrio Alto are around 2kms away, around a ten-minute metro journey.

Barrio Alto offers some of the best nightlife in Europe - and has an eclectic and lively mix of restaurants, bars and clubs.

Don't miss visiting Torre de Belém on the banks of the River Tagus. The tower is one of the 'seven wonders of Portugal' and a UNESCO world heritage site, thanks to the significant role it played in Portuguese maritime history during the Age of Discoveries. Whilst there, you can also visit the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, which also stands on the shore at Belem, and is also a UNESCO world heritage site.

Further Afield

Take a day trip to the Palácio Nacional da Pena. It stands on the top of a hill above the town of Sintra, and on a clear day it can be easily seen from Lisbon and much of its metropolitan area. It is one of the major examples of 19th-century Romanticism in the world, a national monument and UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the apartment, take the metro from Anjos to Rossio ,then take the train from there to Sintra train station.

Alternatively, the beaches at Estoril and Cascais are easily reachable by train (trains leave Cais do Sodre station every 30 minutes and journey time is around 30-45 minutes).

"Lovely stay in blue :-)"

We were three persons in this apartment, and from start to end Nuno and Tania (owner and his partner/coworker?) take really good care of you. We received emails and info upfront, Tania waited with the key on our arrival and helped with any question we had. The apartment is exactly like on the pictures, and it is easy to move around (the tram 28 is just 2 walking min away).
You will have enough towels at your disposal, and the wifi is great. Great value for money.
Good place if you travel with family or friends and if you want to stay in an apartment.

One suggestion for the owner should he change the furniture any time soon: My husband is quite tall, so a bigger bed (1.80m broad) would be great for the master bedroom :-)

"This place was amazing"

Traveling to Lisbon each year is a great pleasure for me and my family, after staying at several apartments, I have to say this one was much more enjoyable than any of the others. The apartment has all the comforts of home, is spacious, and has a very relaxing atmosphere. We were very happy to have free unlimited WIFI and satellite TV for the children and were very happy that the apartment was cleaned with nontoxic cleaning products. My husband's favorite place was on the balcony where we both really enjoyed having our morning coffee, which we bought only a few doors down from the apartment. Having a large family of six, means needing a lot of space and this apartment provided us with just that, three bedrooms, one bath, a large living area, and a dining room that the whole family could enjoy. We did not feel like we were cramped into a small hotel room and the children had freedom to move about. The apartment was well maintained, very clean, and unlike expensive hotels there were no plain white walls, this apartment was decorated beautifully. Being just a ten minute ride from the city was one of the things we loved about the apartment. We felt that we were in a safe neighborhood and the roads were quiet, the apartment was very peaceful. We loved that the apartment is located close to Tram #28, and it is such a short ride to all the places we wanted to go. We enjoyed several of the museums along with a trip to the beach. Lisbon has amazing sites, beautiful scenery, and the architecture is lovely. There are also many wonderful places to eat that are located near the apartment, but our favorite was the hidden treasure at the end of the Tram#28 ride. The food in Lisbon is always amazing and one of the reasons we love Lisbon so much. When you stay at this apartment you really get to see what Lisbon is like, you don't feel like a tourist out site seeing, you feel like this is your home and you are part of Lisbon. This year was more enjoyable for us than any other year and it is simply because we chose to stay in this beautiful apartment. It is our hope to book this apartment every year because; it really did feel like our home away from home. I would recommend anyone going to Lisbon stay in this apartment, it was an amazing experience and the owners are wonderful. The house rules are simple and renting this apartment will complete your stay in Lisbon. Tania and Nuno provide great hosting services, always checking in to see if there is anything you need. The only thing about our trip that we did not enjoy was having to leave this beautiful apartment in such a wonderful city. We cannot wait to return next year and cannot say enough about how wonderful this apartment was and how wonderful Tania and Nuno were.

Dear Brandi -

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience at the Turquoise House with the TripAdvisor and Holidaylettings communities. It means so much to us, especially after knowing that you've visited Lisbon so many times before and you considered your stay at the Turquoise House as the best one so far. We're thrilled!

It was such a pleasure to welcome you and we can't wait to do it again.

Don't leave it too long!

Kindest regards
Turquoise House

Dear Geert -

Many thanks for taking the time to review your holiday at the Turquoise House. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and we really appreciate your kind words, particularly regarding the quality of the accommodation.

I also appreciate your feedback regarding the neighborhood whilst at the same time we feel very sorry that you didn't have the chance to experience some of the best traditional restaurants, coffee shops and bars we do have at walking distance from the apartment (without thinking too much, there's at least 6 places we'd highly recommend which can be reached in no more than 5 minutes walking). Next time we'll make sure we'll give you this insider tips.

I hope that you will be travelling to Lisbon again soon and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Kind regards,
Turquoise House

I'd say that most likely either you didn't take the right transportation or you faced some issues with transports being on time.
