Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and is on the Atlantic coast. It lies on the steep hills on the north bank of the river Tagus (Rio Tejo). Its proximity to the coast makes it an ideal choice for both sightseeing and sunbathing.
There are many wonderful areas outside Lisbon that are easy to get to and make a lovely day trip, such as Estoril and Cascais, Costa de Caparica including Arrabida and Setubal, Sintra and Mafra and the wine area of Colares.

Fiona's apartment offers space and homeliness for Lisbon visitors who want to stay just outside the touristy areas - close enough to public transport and far enough to feel like a local! Due to wet weather we could not make use of the garden but this would be a definite bonus on a hot summers night. Our 5-year old had a great time watching the world go by from the balcony and the kids' bunker bed is a definite winner! In all good value for your money.
So pleased you enjoyed your time in Lisbon. Next time I hope you get a bit more sun to enjoy the garden. June is a great time with all the parties of Santo Antonio. Thanks again.

From the outside the building looks like many others in Graça area, but once inside you realise why the flat is so highly rated. There are nice views from the balconies at the front of the building but what really makes the flat special is the 'secret' garden leading off the kitchen/breakfast room at the back. From here there are wonderful views over the Tage and the sorrounding rooftops. The garden is ideal for snacks/meals or even for just dozing ih the hamac! The flat is also very well-equipped and clean. I really can't imagine anything better.
We already knew Lisbon quite well and didn't really need help, but Fiona's neighbour downstairs is on hand for advice if need be.
Although the actual building has a lift it's half-way up a steep street so is perhaps not very adapted for the elderly or those with walking diffiuclties. However it's easy to find a taxi. Ohterwise the metro or bus/tramway is about a ten minute walk .
There are lots of little shops and typical cafés and bars to discover in this less tourisity areas. All in all, a great find
I'm so glad you enjoyed your holiday. You're making me have "saudades" talking about the garden and the hammock.

The apartment is an excellent starting point to discover Lisbon. The apartment is quiet, comfortable and the large garden/terrace has a great view on the river, and is a great place to read, dine and wine. The location is perfect for those who (like us) do not like a poshy neighborhood or who prefer to stay outside areas which are tourist traps. Area is a local community, with many small shops. Transport (metro, tram, etc.) is nearby. Taxi's (cheap in Lisbon) are always around and available. Some historical districts are within walking distance. One point of attention. This part of Lisbon is hilly and the apartment is on very steep road.
Thank you very much. So glad you enjoyed your stay.
