“We spent almost ten days in Lisbon, which could have not been easier. The home of Nuno and Joana's family was a welcoming place with everything we needed. The apartment was nice and comfortable with a lovely balcony and a perfect location. The neighbourhood was calm and safe. Our favourite place to go was "A Padaria Portuguesa", which is just across the srteet and offers the best breakfast. The communication with the family was easy and active. We are really grateful for this exchange and the experience!”
