The Apartment is set at Calçada do Castelo Picão in the Madragoa quarter, an old and typical working class neighboorhood where fishermens and the fishwives used to live. There´s a Lisbon icon called "varina" that has its origin here, which gives the name to this apartment and is the fishwive with a basket full of fish on her head proclaiming sayings to sell the fish! Here we can find typical portuguese tascas to eat, but very close from here in Santos district we have two of the most emblematic nightlife places in Lisbon: Avenida 24 de Julho and Santos. Also in Janelas Verdes street we can find one of the most important museums in Lisbon: The Museum of Ancient Art. Just a few steps from the apartment crossing the charming Largo do Chafariz e das Janelas Verdes square, you will find this magnificent museum considered to be beyond any doubt the richest and most beautiful in Lisbon with important art collections from the 12th to the 19th century including collections of painting, sculpture, drawings and decorative arts, mostly European and Oriental, and also representing the relationships established between Europe and East following the voyages of discovery began in the fifteenth century that Portugal was a pioneer nation. Next to the museum a peaceful belvedere with insights and viewpoint to the river, Lisbon’s harbour and the 25th April Bridge. Here we highly recommend the ”le chat” cafe esplanade next to this gazebo, one of the best esplanades for sure in Lisbon with stunning views and a modern design.
Going eastwards trough the Janelas Verdes street you find yourself in Santos, the design district and also where we can find the hottest nightspots in Lisbon such as Kapital, Kremlin, or Plateau discothèques among others. Crossing the railway line and already by the riverside you will find open spaces, bicycle and race lanes, the Port of Lisbon and even day and night bars with the best terraces of Lisbon on the Tejo waterfront, as is the case of the Meninos do Rio. On the opposite side and climbing the Lisbon's typical streets from the apartment and heading north, we will find Lapa, a charming and aristocratic neighbourhood. Little by little we perceive the change: from popular, working-class streets with a Renaissance feel down below, we now stroll through the diplomatic and aristocratic air of the Lapa district where large single family mansions, small palaces and gardens surrounded by embassies were built. This must be the "safest area in Lisbon for sure!
The area is well served and connected with public transportation: the bus 727 takes you to the city centre in just 15 minutes and the trains in Santos can take you to Belém, or even outside Lisbon to Estoril and Cascais.
However we are quite flexible to let you in earlier or checking you out later depending on the apartment´s occupancy! We can confirm you all these arrangements the day before you arrive.
Late Check in: Check in after 22:00 has a 20 EUR fee.
An Amount of €150 for stays under 15 days, and €300 for stays of 15 days or more will be asked to you as a guarantee for damages. This amount is to be paid when checking in, in cash and should be refunded to you when checking out.
This procedure may be substituted by the details of the credit card with witch the reservation was made.
The apartment will be ready and cleaned for you before your arrival. Fresh towels and sheets are also provided and all is included in the total price.
el apartamento es precioso, está muy céntrico. Ideal para gente que le guste las zonas bohemias. la atención de Jorge fue correcta y muy amable.
Not bad at all but not that special either. Pretty close to what we could expect from the information given on the web when we booked. Not impressive in any way and rather narrow, with really bad storage for clothes and shoes. Nice with elevator when coming home after a long walk.
Good reception of the caretaker and (as it later turned out) a good location in Lisbon for tourists as us. Quiet and good neighborhood and (given the city's size and complex road network) quite close to most things that you want to see.
Next door to a small but very good neighborhood store, that had most of needed food, fruit and household goods and whose owner spoke a little English. Very friendly!
Some poor maintenance of the apartment though, such as broken lights i.e. House caretaker saw this at the presentation but just shrugged and didn't bother to come back with new lights or to fix it.
It can well be Wimdu again if we are going to Lisbon, but a little doubtful if we take the same apartment in that case. If so it would be because of the location in the city and the pleasant storekeeper.
The apartment was very good for our stay - big rooms and nice outdoor terrace at the back. It is well equipped and fairly quiet for the location. Jorge´s colleague met us when we arrived.
Wonderful apartment with Lisbon's greatest view. I would definitely recommend this apartment. The bed was though not good.
top apartment, clean, nice furnished, communication / key transfer worked great => we can recommend the apartment located in BICA to every lisbon tourist!!!
The apartment was well situated in the Bairro alta area. But the on the website pictures are nicer than in real life.
The chairs were loose and the table was defect. There was no tableclothe and a painting was leaning on the sofa. The pillows was smaller than showed in the picture. There were missing proper kitchen knifes.
The kitchen and the bathroom was good.
We had a stay with three People and we enjoyed a lot. The flat was absolutely great, clean, quiet and nevertheless central. The correspondence was trouble free. We have even got 2 Keys and there was a Hairdryer actually. Next time we would like book it again. Big thank you!
An excellent location to enjoy Lisboa. right in the middle of the centre. restaurants nearby. The apartment has all the necessary facilities. 2 large double bed bedrooms, bathroom, a living and kitchen. nice view over the town.
Very central placed in town, close to tramp 25/28 and Metro blue line at Bica-Chindao. Magnificent view over the town and the river Tejo. Quiet neighbourhood, with supermarket and other stores/eating places within 5 minutes walk.
Large light and well equipped - and clean appartment.
We give our warmest recommodation!
