About our home

The history of our house takes us back to the year 1755, when occurred the great earthquake that destroyed most of Lisbon. Having survived this disaster, and after being renewed in 2005, our house now shows old lines that marked the great mansions of yesteryear, such as high ceilings and paintings on the walls and ceilings. A true historic home preserved in a unique way in the Lisbon of these days, an also unique center of culture.

It has 3 bedrooms, two with single beds (about 20 square meters each) that share a bathroom, but each with an extra bed if necessary, and a suite equipped with a bathtub and a shower. It has a spacious kitchen that opens onto the balcony, as well as the room. The balcony has a wonderful view over the city and the Tejo river. The house also has a library with books on various themes and a gym with some machines, some of which were moved to other rooms of the house in order to be more easily accessible. The living room is quite large (50 square meters) and has three large windows overlooking the river, so that lovers can enjoy the view both inside as outside.

The downtown Lisbon has a wide variety of events, always with great entertainment. Historically, the Castelo de São Jorge is located just 2 minutes from the house, as well as Lisbon Cathedral and the Roman ruins. To eat, to the end of the street there is a restaurant that does not want to miss the Santa Rita (traditional Portuguese food). If you're willing to walk a little more, the terraces in the Commerce Square are also a good place for lovers of tapas and a good place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the river. Another place that does not want to miss is the Chapitô, a small bar in the castle hill (just 1 minute from home) with a very relaxed and fun environment. The Liberty Avenue is the perfect place for those who like to shop. Stores like Prada or Gucci fill the avenue of life, giving it a glamorous environment (5 min from home). For those who prefer a wider variety of items, the Chiado Warehouses provide all kinds of articles, and Brasileira coffee (just 1 minute away from the warehouses) is a spot that did not want to miss, since it portrays the environment of the nineteenth century lived in most of cafes in Lisbon at the time.

Unfortunately we are not currently available for trading more than a week, but we would like to keep in touch even after the end of this different experience!
