Lisbon has been the capital of Portugal since the 12th century. It has a long history that can be experienced in the old neighborhoods, which may be visited by foot or tram. The Atlantic climate offers wonderful conditions to travel all year round. The main feature of Pena is that it is a plateau, from which two main slopes descend, facing Martin Moniz and Avenida da Liberdade. It begins at the north-east of Rossio and extends to Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, commonly known by Campo de Santana. The streets on the two slopes are twisting and irregular, leading to many beautiful alleys and side streets.
Being one of the oldest districts in Lisbon, one is overwhelmed by the diversity of its buildings, constructed in accordance with the successive types of architecture through centuries. Wrought iron balconies from the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries can be seen everywhere. In constant dialogue with the wrought iron are the glazed tiles of the façades - a style reportedly brought from Brazil after the 16th century.
It is very close to the famous Bairro Alto, a nightlife area, which can be reached after walking down Rossio or by taking the Elevador do Lavra, the oldest funicular in Lisbon. This 120 year old elevator goes every 15 minutes down to Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, the location of many excellent fish restaurants as recommended by many city guides.

Reviews for this host's other properties
The Appartment was nice and clean.
Communication with Ana was perfect and fast.
The Appartment is located very central near Bairro Alto and everything can be reached very fast by foot.
Beautiful location in an atmospheric buurt.Ligt high. View over Lisbon's beautiful. Fine reception by Joanna who immediately gives lots of tips.
Apartment is ready for a facelift, we had a leak (and just a lot of rain this weekend) and that was not nice. We did get the opportunity to choose another option but we stayed because we did not want to pack our stuff. Again Made big bucket underneath. Large windows did not open, was caught, many small bathroom mildew. So consider carefully take everything in hand (brushing, dyeing, and that which is to make even the broken power cords broken) would make this a prime location.
greetings Ilse and Wim
Prachtige locatie in een sfeervolle buurt.Ligt hoog. Uitzicht over Lissabon is prachtig. Fijne ontvangst door Joanna die meteen heel veel tips geeft.
Appartement is wel toe aan een opknapbeurt, we hadden een lekkage (en net veel regen dit weekend) en dat was niet fijn. We kregen wel de mogelijkheid om voor een andere optie te kiezen maar we zijn gebleven omdat we geen zin hadden om onze spullen weer op te pakken. Grote emmer eronder gedaan. Grote raam ging niet open, zat vastgeklemd, badkamertje veel schimmelplekken. Dus alles weer eens grondig onder handen nemen (poetsen, verven en dat wat kapot is maken, ook de kapotte elektriciteit-snoeren) zou deze locatie weer tot een toplocatie maken.
groeten Ilse en Wim
5 stars out of 5.
Everything as described and wonderfully reliable hosts made this a memorable stay. Big like. Next time Lisboa we will be around again.
The apartment is in an ideal location, close to all-you-can-need local groceries and spot on restaurants, where we could feel the spirit of the old Lisbon. Well equipped, although we lacked some small details like dishwasher tablets ;-) It is on the steep hill, so getting up and down twice a day was a bit exhausting (esp. that we were with small children), so may be a minus, unless keeping fit is your priority. The kids got used to in the end, too :)
Nevertheless if we vistited Lisbon again, we would definately come back there.
Thanks for a warm welcome to Joanna!
Very pleasant welcome and easy communication with the person in charge. That was a pleasure. Thank you
We enjoyed the apartment very much and right in the center of Lisbon. The welcome by Sara was nice, efficient and friendly. The contacts we had before about time of arrival and directions was good. This apartment is worth to come again.
Place actually superb - an unforgettable view over Lisbon with one of the highest vantage points in the city. The host very helpful and responsive. Very nice, clean and neat live with equipped kitchen if someone wants to prepare dinner on the terrace overlooking the lying at the foot of the city. I would definitely recommend.

Miejsce faktycznie rewelacyjne - niezapomniany widok na Lizbonę z jednego z najwyższych punktów widokowych w tym mieście. Gospodarz bardzo pomocny i elastyczny. Bardzo miłe, czyste i zgrabne mieszkanko z wyposażoną kuchnią jeśli ktoś ma ochotę na przygotowanie kolacji na tarasie z widokiem na leżące u stóp miasto. Zdecydowanie polecam.

Very welcoming, accommodating and seamless availability to answer all our questions. It was a pleasure to travel through this organization!
However, the apartment has some imperfections that we do not detect in the photos. But the breathtaking views of Lisbon and the convenient location could only contribute to our stay very pleasant.
Très bon accueil, arrangeant et disponibilités sans faille pour répondre à toutes nos questions. Ce fut un plaisir de voyager via cet organisme!
Cependant, l'appartement présente quelques imperfections qu'on ne décèle pas sur les photos. Mais la vue imprenable sur Lisbonne et son emplacement pratique n'ont pu que contribuer à notre séjour fort agréable.
Clean, comfortable & very bright 3-room apartment in a very central and very quiet location. Small kitchen with two hotplates, kettle & microwave but no oven. At the next opportunity I get happy again from here.
Saubere, bequeme & sehr helle 3-Zimmer-Wohnung an sehr zentraler und auch sehr ruhiger Lage. Kleine Küche mit zwei Herdplatten, Wasserkocher & Mikrowelle aber ohne Backofen. Bei nächster Gelegenheit steige ich gerne wieder hier ab.
Great apartment east of the Fresh rua. Really lovely and decor that makes you feel at home. The treatment of the person who welcomed us was excellent and even helped me a lot in solving a loss of keys. A place to come highly recommended. By faulted, just needs to be overlooking the Tagus! Thanks for everything, it was a great weekend!
Estupendo apartamento este de la rua Fresca. Realmente encantador y una decoración que te hace sentir como en tu casa. El trato de la persona que nos acogió fue excelente e incluso me ayudaron muchísimo en solventar una pérdida de llaves. Un sitio para volver, muy recomendable. Por poner una pega, sólo le falta tener vistas al Tajo! Gracias por todo, ha sido un fin de semana magnífico!
