Over the city
Lisbon is Portugal’s capital and the hub of a multifaceted area that appeals to different tastes and senses.
In a city that has been influenced by many different far-off cultures over time, there is still a village feel in each historic neighbourhood. Stroll through the Pombaline grid of streets in the Baixa district that opens on to the Tagus in Praça do Comércio, then follow the river to discover some of the city’s most beautiful parts: the monumental area of Belém with its World Heritage monuments, the mediaeval quarters and the latest contemporary leisure spaces, such as the Parque das Nações.
If you continue to the mouth of the river, you’ll understand why we say that Lisbon is the centre of a vast resort. Along the coastal road you’ll find beaches and beach resorts that combine villas and hotels from the beginning of the 20th century with marinas, terraces and excellent golf courses. Further along the coast you’ll come across world-renowned surfing beaches, but also the palaces scattered across the cultural landscape of Sintra, a World Heritage Site.
The wide variety of landscapes and heritage is always close by, whether to the north or south of the capital. With beaches, natural parks, cultural routes and accommodation for all tastes, it is hard to escape the Lisbon region on a visit to Portugal.
In the heart of Alfama
The property has jaw-dropping river views, located on a tranquil square in the heart of Alfama – Lisbon’s oldest historic neighbourhood – by the Santa Luzia Belvedere, with its romantic terrace offering sweeping views of Alfama’s houses, churches and the Tagus River.
The São Jorge Castle is literally around the corner from the property, as are most of Lisbon’s sought-after landmarks, including the São Vicente de Fora Church and the National Pantheon, where the Feira da Ladra or Flea Market is hosted every week on Tuesday and Saturday, all of which are no more than a 2-minute stroll from the apartment.
Reachable by car, but in a restricted area to residents only, which gives the property a high level of privacy.
The apartment comprises a generous living room with three windows (all with river views), open-plan kitchen which is fully-fitted with all the appliances, guest bathroom and suite with an en-suite (2nd) bathroom. Both bathrooms have walk-in showers and walls lined with exotic marbles. The already incredibly bright apartment has 3 skylights in the roof, which afford the apartment even more natural light.
