We were welcomed by Pedro when we arrived, he treated us to local pastry and wine. The apartment is beautifully decorated and clean. It is within walking distance of Barrio Alto. The apartment did get stuffy at night but we were able to leave the bedroom window open to allow a flow of air in and still feel safe. The outdoor area is perfect for having breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening. The area and apartment is very peaceful. Pedro lives in the apartment above and was nearby if we needed anything. Be careful in the shower as its possible to cause a flood by over flowing! Apart from this we would definitely stay again!

This ground floor apartment is a strange mix. Recently refurbished the fixtures and fittings are in good order. There were only two of us and so we only used one of the two bedrooms available.
Fortunately the weather was kind for us and we were able to eat outside in the mornings and evenings. The dining room, as well as the outside area is accessed through one of the bedrooms. The dining area had a strange smell in it and we did not use it at all whilst we were there. The toilet/ shower room is very small. The wash basin is so small that it was difficult to wash your face from it. There is no air conditioning. The apartment is on the ground floor with steel shutters to the outside of the two windows so you do not get any view at all and if you want privacy you will need to keep the shutters closed.
Be warned!! There are ants in this apartment which you will find in the kitchen and living area.
There are a couple of restaurants near by, and a mini supermarket. Be prepared to walk a lot from this apartment or make use of the excellent public transport every time you want to go into Lisbon town. You will need to be fairly fit if you choose to walsk as it is very hilly in this area which is why I would not recommend it for anyone who is unfit, or has mobility issues.
