“ideal apartment in great location” We had a fantastic time in Rita and Miguel's flat. It had everything we needed and was in a great location. It was clean and tidy. Rita and Miguel were great hosts and their handmade guide to Lisbon proved very useful. I would definitely recommend their place!
“excellent and quiet apartment with greta view on the river Taag in non-tourist area; ideal to discover Lisbon” 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.
“Fabulously located, attractive apartment with a lovely helpful owner!” We loved staying in Aida’s apartment. It’s spacious, immaculate, modern, bright and attractive and was a lovely place for the family to chill out when we weren’t sightseeing. We thought we would only be ‘crashing out’ there, but it was better than the photos online (the kitchen was a particularly nice surprise!). So we spent more time there than planned, bringing back takeaways from local restaurants and even cooking simple meals as there were good shops nearby.
We felt very lucky to find somewhere so centrally located and yet so quiet- the best of both worlds. It’s in a virtually silent, tiny back street and it’s hard to believe that it’s situated right behind the famous #28 tram route and part of the fun Barrio Alto area full of buzzing fado clubs and restaurants. In one direction we were minutes walk from one of the beautiful miradours where we could peacefully breakfast at its typical café while overlooking sensational views. In another direction, we could walk into the buzzing centre of town in a few minutes and start sightseeing or window shopping straight away.
Not only was it a lovely, well-located apartment, but Aida was terrifically helpful- from sending us a message beforehand to print for our taxi driver to effortlessly find his way, to warmly greeting us on our arrival and giving us lots of ideas of how to live like Lisboans for a week (providing cheap mobile phones for each of us and getting us started with travelcards, for example) Our children can find all this info a big drag, but they fell in love with Aida! She made sure we really would call her if we needed help, day or night, but there was no need. So apart from a quick call to us checking we were ok after a bad storm, she didn’t reappear until our last day to organise our taxi and help us on our way. The perfect hostess!
