This luxurious two storey cottage (approx 85 sq m / 915 sq ft) is located within a 5 minute walk of the bars and restaurants in the Bairro Alto and less than a 10 minute walk to the shops, cafés and Metro station in Chiado.
It's an ideal base for exploring the city with a stop for Lisbon's historic trams close by and, if you want to go to the beach, Cais do Sodré railway station is 15 minutes walk away including a ride down the famous 'Elevador da Bica'.
Despite the central location, the cottage is at the end of a terrace on a quiet street and backs on to the Geological Museum so you can enjoy the best of Lisbon but relax and sleep well when you want to.

Avenida da Liberdade - Lisbon's main Avenue. Shopping and cafés

Basilica da Estrela - Lisbon's most impressive church and nearby gardens

"Beautiful and great location"
Strengths: - Beautifully furnished and very spacious house. - Super convenient location so close to Barrio Alto - Very good suggestions provided by the owners - Very good quality-price ratio Only improvement area: - Slightly cold and humid - felt especially in the blankets on our day of arrival, probably for having been washed recently

"A charming modern conversion of an old dwelling in central 'old Lisbon'."
A surprising stylish and modern conversion of a tiny 18thC dwelling (behind a large church), where the raised marble-floored entrance and reception space leads down to a cool, excavated basement containing bedrooms and bathroom. The effect is fresh, tasteful, modern and airy. With a little careful mapping - never be without a good street map in Lisbon! - it's easy to stroll uphill or downhill to nearby bus, tram and Metro stops, though the main central-city areas can in fact be reached quite easily on foot. There are many small shops and restaurants close by, with the night-life of the Bairro Alto just a 10-minute walk away. By day the street is very quiet (by Lisbon standards), but a garbage collection depot across the street - an odd addition to this rather genteel neighbourhood - can spring noisily to life in the early hours: visitors may want to pack a good pair of ear-plugs! But this is a minor criticism of a clean, well-run and convenient base-camp in a charming, old-fashioned setting.

- réservation rapide et facile et contact cordial et prévenant avec Justo et Simon dès le début - accueil chaleureux et prévenant de Justo à notre arrivée qui nous attendait et a pris le temps de nous prodiguer des conseils qui ont facilité notre séjour - appartement confortable, très propre et décoré avec goût. Idéalement situé à proximité des commerces, dans un quartier résidentiel très calme à moins de 10 minutes à pied de la station de métro Baixa-Chiado et des principaux sites touristiques du cente-ville - plein de petites attentions qui font la différence : une bouteille de Vinho Verde nous attendait au réfrigérateur et un taxi nous a été réservé pour le jour du départ... - enfin, rapport qualité / prix imbattable comparé à un hôtel (350 € pour 4 nuits) ! Un grand merci à vous deux et Bravo !

"Excellent location and hosting"
Stayed at this lovely apartment in July. It had everything that I needed and was within a short walk to some great restaurants and bars, which was really buzzing. The weather was fantastic and in apartment was cool. when I come back to Lisbon, will definitely stay here again. Next time I wanna come with family, because there enough space for 4 persons and really good located. Thank you Justo very much!

"Lovely little house and great for a family"
We stayed for a week in this cottage near Principe Real. The location is great for those who want to be able to walk around in old Lisbon. Its very near Bairro Alto and Rato is a bit further. Lots of eateries, everyone we tried was good. Some were very small and local but very welcoming and provided pleasant traditional Portuguese food. The pastries are second to none. Justo welcomed us and gave us useful information about places to go and getting around and about. This was very helpful. The accommodation is well equipped and compact and we felt if anything was needed all we had to do was contact Justo. My sons were very impressed with the marble flooring, the decorative tiling and chandeliers. It felt like a real break from our usual surroundings. Bellem is worth a day out and also lots of good art museums in Lisbon. All the ones we visited had an English translation of the exhibit which was great.
Thanks so much! Glad you and your family enjoyed and felt comfortable. Best wishes.

"Great value, terrific apartment for family"
We visited Lisbon in mid June with the family (2 kids 14 and 12). The apartment is very nice: very comfortable double bed and 2 single beds in a separate bedroom; new well equipped kitchen; washing machine; good WiFi; comfortable lounge; good air conditioning. Could not fault the apartment and Justo was great to deal with and very helpful with information and advice. The location is a 5-7 minute walk up hill to the Bairro Alto area which has many restaurants and bars in narrow streets (prepare for the salty food!). The apartment is in a pleasant street near a museum. You can easily walk 5 minutes to the famous tram. 10 minutes and you get to the metro. You can also walk to the main train station in about 15 minutes- which is handy for Sintra. We also walked to the tram for Belem. Having said that we often paid 5-6 euro to get a taxi back to the apartment because of the hills. We thought 340 Euro for 4 night for 4 people was remarkable value. Why would you stay in a hotel box when you can enjoy this lovely apartment? There were plenty of small shops nearby to get breakfast stuff and a supermarket about 7 minutes walk. Would not hesitate to recommend.

"Wonderful stay for a family"
What is different about the place is that it’s like home – the owner has taken care of everything to make your stay cozy and convenient. The place is situated in a safe, central location on a quiet street. The apartment is well maintained and the beds are comfortable. It has no terrace or a view, but we did not consider that a problem as we were out most of the time. I would recommend this apartment.

"Good location and clean and comfortable accommodation"
I stayed with two friends at Lisbon Cottage and we felt the accommodation was very well presented, extremely clean and tidy and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of hot water and the beds were comfortable with good pillows and lots of blankets etc to suit any individual. The property is well placed for visiting the city as a whole and is in a quiet location. It is near to the old quarter of the Biarro Alto and within easy walking distance of the city centre shops and public transport. We were met by the owner late in the evening due to our flight times and he was very helpful and informative. We enjoyed our stay very much.
