About our home

Very charming apartment in the historical heart of Lisbon, on the third floor of a traditional tiled building right next to the Parliament (São Bento district). This is a non-smoking one bedroom apartment which is perfect for people but can also accommodate up to 4, with the sofa-bed in the living room. Please note that there is no lift.

The house perfectly blends centrality and relaxation, with its sunny balcony overlooking the river Tagus and the neighbours' gardens. The famed tram 28 stops a few metres from its doorstep, plenty of buses serve the area, and not only a train station but also three metro stations are very close by. The location is perfect to explore all the most interesting spots of Lisbon, including Chiado, Baixa, Cais do Sodré, Castelo, and even Belém.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

The São Bento area is one of the best-preserved distorical districts of Lisbon. It lies close the the Tejo river and within walking distance of most of the attractions of the city. It is well served by public transport, including the famed tram 28 (which stops meters away from our doorstep), metro (with 3 stations within a 10 minute walk), bus (to the entire city, including Belém), and train (the nearby Santos station connects to the Cascais line). Portugal's main museum, the Museum of Ancient Art, is in the neighbourhood, as is the National Parliament.

In the last few years, São Bento has become decidedly hip and has seen an enormous renovation. It is filled with cafés and restaurants (old and new), shops and galleries. In São Bento and in the adjoining areas of Baixa, Chiado, Cais do Sodré, Madragoa and Príncipe Real, there is no shortage of things to do.

Buzzy restaurants
The area has great restaurants serving Portuguese food (for instance, Taberna Ideal, Café de São Bento, Frade dos Mares) and international cuisines (such as Cantinho da Paz for Goan food, Tambarina for Cape Verdean dishes, or Café Tehran for Iranian food).
Cool bars
From here, all the cool bars of Bairro Alto, Cais do Sodré and Santos are within walking distance.
Cozy cafés
Some of my favourite cafés in the neighbourhood include Pão de Canela, Boutik, Café Boavida and Hello Kristof.
Retail therapy
São Bento is the hotspot for antiques in the city, and nearby Santos is seen as the design district.
Bit of culture
Museu de Arte Antiga, Portugal's most important museum.
Walks in the park
Cozy Praça das Flores and charming Jardim da Estrela are close by.
Spot of exercise
Go for a jog or a ride along the banks of the Tejo river.
Day tripping
From São Bento, it is easy to travel to Cascais, Sintra and the riverine beaches; to Sintra and its enchanted hills; and Lisbon's main train station of Santa Apolónia (for connections to the rest of the country) is not far.
