About our home

Exchanges for 2020 already fixed.

Our home is a 140 square meters apartment 10 minutes away from Lisbon center. It is a duplex apartment, cosy and well furnished.

In the ground floor we have the sitting and dinning room together, the very small kitchen, a bedroom with a balcony and a small wc. In this floor there is a terrace.
In the first floor there is a small office, a wc and three bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has a balcony where you can hear the birds.

In August the weather is hot and sunny. In Summer we usually take our meals outside in the terrace.

There are plants, films, books and games.

More about us

  1. We are a married couple - Nuno and Joana, both 52 years old. We have two adult daughters and a teenager son. Nuno is engineer and Joana is psychologist.
    Inês is twenty five and is taking a PhD in Stockolm. Catarina is twenty four , has a master in Finances and works for a bank. João is sixteen.
    We have made ten home exchanges - Tarragona, Quimper, Marseille, Brighton, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Dublin, French Alpes, Doenrade (The Netherlands) and Pécs (Hungary ). The last three exchanges with the Lisbon flat, the previous exchanges with a villa not available anymore.
    Since 2020 we are open to exchanges with Alenquer' farm.

  2. We are an easy-going family, we love to travel, sports and contact with nature. We love places full of history.
    In the summer hollidays we usually travel together or just four of us travel. In the summer Ines or Catarina may travel with their boyfriends during a week of the time exchange. So we may travel four, five or six.

  3. We really love to live in Lisbon and feel happy to share that with you. Alenquer is a good choice if you like nature and silence.
    We expect you feel at home and take care of our house as your own. We will take care of yours the same way.
    We have a very calm cat, Nokinhas, who could stay in the house with you if you agree or stay with other persons. We also have another cat, Alex, but as he is very active he will stay with our family.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

The house is situated close to Lisbon center, a city with a special light and full of history, charm and surprises.

In our district (Telheiras) you have some good restaurants and lots of nice cafes, post, supermarkets, groceries, shops, newspapers agents, cinemas, theatres, hospitals and medical services, parks and all the facilities you could need. The metro station is in a walking distance of 5 minutes. There is a cyclovia passing nearby. You can easily cycle to Lisbon center. Or by bus if you prefer. There are electrical bycicles that you can use all around the city 5 minutes away (you just need to install an app and pay a small fee).
There are several schools around, gardens, a nice library. University Stadium park is in a walking distance of 10 minutes. There you can run, play tennis, swim. Monsanto natural park, the Lisbon major park is 10 minutes away by car. There are several natural parks and gardens very close to the house.
It is possible to play tennis and many other sports in the neighborhood. There is a biological market in saturdays mornings in the square in front of the house.
Telheiras has often been considered one of the best neighbourhoods to live in Lisbon.

You have different beautiful beaches 25 minutes - 1 hour away depending on the traffic. Some beaches are situated in the Lisbon margin of the river Tagus and others in the other margin.
