Ever wish you had friends in another country who had an apartment available for when you came to visit? Well, this is as close as one could hope for; Ana and Pierre, the owners of the apartment, made our trip special with their thoughtfulness.
Pierre was there to welcome us when we arrived. He explained everything we needed to know about the apartment and castle area. The apartment had been prepared with food; including a fresh loaf of bread, butter, a jar of pear jam, cheese, ham, jars of yogurt, and a bottle of local wine. The apartment had everything we needed so it was a home away from home.
Our hosts also provided us with recommendations on restaurants, shops, and sights which were all great local resources and not “tourist traps”. One of the restaurants up at the castle which had been recommended was truly a highlight of our entire trip.
We had a lovely week in Lisbon and enjoyed our stay at this charming little apartment within the castle walls.
The flat is located within the Castle walls, adjoining the museum, making it a perfect base for seeing Lisbon. The Alfama neighborhood beyond Castello is close by, as is public transportation -- especially the famed 28E tram. The flat contains all furnishings we could have hoped for, with a large supermarket a 5 to 10 minute walk away. The owner is friendly, helpful, and generous.
It would be hard to ask for more from an apartment. Located within spitting distance of the Castle, with all the amenities you might reasonably expect. Piere and Ana made excellent hosts, with an ample list of recomendations, wonderful map, and delicious yoghurt. Even in the heat and madness of mass tourism, the apartment was delightfully quiet and comparatively cool.
The coffee shop next door is also thoroughly recomended, very friendly staff and delicius food.
Located at the top of the hill just outside the walls of the Castelo Sao Jorge. Simply amazing location literally footsteps from the entrance of the Castle. Our hosts, Anna and Pierre were beyond gracious providing us with not only the particulars of the town, but also with wine, butter, fresh bread, yogurt and jamon upon our arrival.
The apartment was tiny but well-appointed and perfect for the 2 of us, including a coffee shop right next door and beautiful walks through the cobblestone streets.
We will be back!
We were so happy with our choice to book here. Ana and Pierre were incredibly accommodating and friendly. They made you feel like you were a welcome guest in their home! The apartment was perfectly located and everything we needed for our four days in Lisbon. The decor, and special touches she had available for us were great. Tons of recommendations for all different tastes! We’ll plan to come back again for sure!
