Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

This apartment in Lisbon boasts views over the quiet, rustic street below, where you can buy fresh, local fare to enjoy on the terrace. This locality gives you the opportunity to experience a typical Portugese neighbourhood and engage with people who have lived in this historic area for generations, and the trendy new arrivals drawn to the area by the government-sponsored urban renewal.

Despite its Lisbon Old Town location, Lusitania One is firmly in the 21st century with WiFi internet access and more mod cons; technology fiends need fear not!
There's no need to hire a car as LusitaniaOne Apartmen is easily reached from the airport by either taxi or public transport. The city's Metro system makes getting around a doddle (the nearest Metro station is just a stone's throw from the apartment).

The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region
Whether beach bunny, or city slicker you could do far worse than choose to rent an apartment in the Costa de Lisboa region. Forming Portugal's south-western coast, the area is blessed with temperate winters and summers that aren't overbearingly hot.
Some 15km from Lisbon, you'll find the coastal resort of Estoril (a perfect day trip for those renting apartments in Lisbon). As well as golden sands, Estoril is home to a casino, remains of Roman mansions and a motorsports circuit (the Estoril Circuit). Talk about ticking all the boxes!
If you need to take things down a gear or two, head out to Sintra. Here you'll discover 19th century Romantic architecture, manor houses, a ruined monastery and royal retreats. Why not take a horse-drawn carriage ride? If you need to stretch your legs, try the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, which includes the Sintra Mountains and lush, wooded areas.
A little further afield lies the Mafra Palace and Convent, an awe-inspiring pile of bricks to say the least. This Baroque and Neoclassical complex is one of the largest 18th century buildings in Europe and is in danger of dwarfing the town!
These are but some of the attractions the Costa de Lisboa has on offer. Beach, mountains, history, architecture and modern day fun. Who could ask for more?
And then, of course, there's the city of Lisbon itself...
Lusitania One is nestled in the heart of Lisbon's Old Town. The ideal spot for soaking up Lisbon life, the apartment is just a hop, skip and a jump from the Praça da Figueira square, where you can enjoy a spot of people watching from a cafe terrace. This is where you'll find the nearest Metro station, too.
If a spot of fine architecture floats your boat, you're in luck. Just a five minute walk from the apartment is the Castelo São Jorge. This imposing, Moorish castle overlooks the city from its hilltop vantage point. And don't miss the São Cristóvão Church and the ruins of the Carmo Convent, which was destroyed in the 1755 earthquake in Lisbon.
If Lisbon's hills get a bit too much, hop aboard the Santa Justa Elevador. This lift connects some of the upper and lower streets of the city. There are also funicular railways to give you a leg up.
Take your seat on a Lisbon river cruise along the mighty river Tagus, or join a walking tour. You can always go it alone and wander through the city's cobbled streets on foot, discovering all its hidden corners at your own pace. You can also hire bikes if you prefer life on two wheels.
Once the sun goes down, Lisbon comes into its own. It's just a short walk to the Bairro Alto, the city's cultural and bohemian hub. If you've packed your dancing shoes, there are plenty of bars and discos open well into the morning. Be sure to experience Fado, Portugal's traditional folk music, at one of the local establishments. For something more sedate, there are restaurants to cater to all tastes.
Family-friendly activities include the Lisbon Oceanarium, city zoo, countless parks and gardens, swings, slides and more in the Monsanto forest, the planetarium and museums galore.
Portugal is renowned for its golf courses, and Lisbon is no exception. Perfect that swing and tee off at one of the courses around the city and nearby.
