Lisbonne, Grande Lisboa, Aire métropolitaine de Lisbonne, Portugal
Situated in the southern part of the Principe Real district in Lisbon , this charming apartment with terrace occupies the top floor of a typical, elegant Lisbon building.
In the entrance, a large glass door lets you discover a room bathed in natural light, which is composed of three living areas. On the right, a cozy lounge and its decorative library, facing the fireplace in the center, a more intimate place and on the other end of the room, a dining room.
High windows illuminate the carved ceilings. They open onto the long balcony from where you can admire the columns of the Palácio de São Bento, a Benedictine monastery built in the XIVth century, which houses the Portuguese Assembly.
Both bedrooms are located in the quiet courtyard. The bedroom with silver coloring enjoys a bathroom and a private dressing room; the beige bedroom is modular and can accommodate a couple or children. Both cherish a particular and refined decoration.
The private terrace is the privileged place of the apartment. Partially sheltered by a glass canopy, flowered and picturesque, it will allow you to luxuriate in the sunshine and fresh air of the city in the early morning or contemplate the starry evening sky.
The bedding & washrooms
This charming apartment with terrace in Lisbon has:
1 master bedroom with a double bed (160 x 200), its bathroom and adjoining dressing room;
1 bedroom with 2 modular single beds (2 x 80 x 200 or 160 x 200);

This charming apartment with terrace in Lisbon is located at the intersection of the street São Bento and the street Calçada da Estrela, known for its Basilica.
The Basílica da Estrela, whose official name is the Basilica do Coração de Jesus is a former Carmelite convent. Queen Maria I of Portugal built it in the late XVIIIth century in homage to the birth of her son, José, Prince and heir of Brazil.
In a Neoclassical Baroque style, Rococo, its impressive dome is open to the public and offers stunning views of the city.
The Street São Bento, known for its antique shops, was the residence of the famous Fado singer Amália Rodrigues. Known as the most reputable artist from this genre, to better grasp and understand this melancholic Portuguese music, you can visit the house museum that honors her: Fundação Amália Rodrigues Casa Museu.
To have a traditional breakfast near the apartment, we recommend the typical Quiosque de São Bento. Strolling down along the beautiful tree-lined avenue Dom Carlos I, you will find the Café Republica, a casual place, visited by politicians and artists of the neighborhood.
If you ask Lisbon natives for the best place to eat good meat, there is a great chance that they will respond “the traditional Café São Bento or the upscale restaurant XL”.
Other desires? The Italian Dolce Vita is found at Il Matriciano, and even more original yet, the Kampai restaurant which is a mixture of Japanese cuisine and Portuguese ingredients of the island of the Azores.
At the very end of the day, we suggest the excellent cocktails on the terrace of the Parkbar. You will be captivated by the views of the Tagus River.
