|Address||Rua da Graça, 1170-170 Lisbon, Portugal|
|Response time||A few hours|
It was restored combining architectural tradition and contemporary design. It has 1 bedroom, living room, bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen.
From the windows, the two small balconies and the skylight windows you can see the sky, the rooftops and the lively and wonderful neighbourhood, full of small hidden backyards and gardens.
Graça is located on the highest of the famous seven hills of Lisbon, right next to Alfama and São Jorge's castle. It’s known for its Vilas - meaning clusters of small residential buildings - whose unique architectural features are a subject of study and curiosity all over the world.
The most legendary tram of Lisbon - number 28 - that goes through major city traditional neighbourhoods passes directly in front of the building. The stop is 30 seconds away. Less than a 5 minute walk, are two of the most famous and beautiful panoramic views of Lisbon: Senhora do Monte and Miradouro da Graça breath-taking viewpoints. In a 10 minute walk you will find 'Feira da Ladra' the most typical and genuine (flea) market of the city.
The apartment – with free WIFI internet - has a comfortable and relaxing leaving room (with a futon bed) and an even more peaceful bedroom with a double bed. It is perfect for two people. A third person would have to sleep in the living room, unless it's a child. In that case we could provide a comfortable single mattress.
The kitchen is fully equipped: with a fridge, stove, oven, microwave, washing machine, coffee maker, electric water boiler, toaster and all the necessary cooking utensils. There is also a hair drier and an ironing table.
Like most of the historic constructions in Lisbon, this building was projected long before elevators were invented. The apartment is located on the 4th floor of the building and has a mansard roof.
It is ideally situated Graça’s main street, within a 10 minute walking distance from the metro station of Anjos, a 20 minute walk from the main International railway station Santa Apolónia and a 15 min drive from the airport. If you have never been to Lisbon, you must bear in mind that this city is full of charming but nonetheless challenging hills.
The street and the neighbourhood are full of small traditional shops, bakeries, supermarkets, pharmacies, ATMs, all sorts of restaurants and outdoor cafes, and services you may need for an unforgettable stay in one of the most beautiful and charismatic cities you will ever see.
In case you are travelling by car or if you are planning to rent one:
This apartment is located in one of the few neighbourhoods in Lisbon - if not the only one in central Lisbon - where one can still park a car without paying.
(Please remember to ask that if you decide to choose to stay in a different part of the city.)
In general, parking is not very easy in Graça, but fortunately for me who lived in this apartment for almost 10 years in that area of the neighbourhood it is possible to park without difficulty, even right in front of the building.
From the apartment you can walk almost anywhere, or get the 28 tram to other parts of the city.
If you like walking (up and down the hills…), I would strongly recommend that you leave the car behind and save it for the longer journeys like Sintra, Arrábida or Cascais.
A damage/reservation deposit of €150 is required. This must be received in cash in the arrival day. The deposit is not applied toward rent; however, it is fully refundable in the last day during check out.
The apartment will be clean at the arrival date and will be equipped with a complete set of sheets and towels per person. At the check out day, you must leave the house in acceptable cleaning conditions. The proprietary has the right to charge an extra cleaning fee, in case the apartment is not in proper conditions.
You must be aware that this rental is only temporary and for the purpose of holidays.
You cannot sub-rent the house to any other person and must do everything under your power to prevent any risk of robbery, fire, water flood, damages to neighbours and damages to any furniture or belongings in the apartment as well as to the apartment itself.
You cannot occupy the apartment with more people than the ones agreed. Pets will not be allowed without previous consent.
Smoking is allowed.
Silence must be respected from 10 pm until 9 am: please avoid parties, loud music or any kind of situations that might disturb the harmony among neighbours.
The renter is responsible for any consequence that might occur of the use of the apartment including responsibility for any damage, fire, robbery or any criminal activity.
This will be your home for a few days. Just take good care of it, and all will be perfect.

We had an absolute fabulous stay in Sofia's appartment which is located in the center of Graca. The perfect location for trips around Lisbon. Sofia's friend Joana gave us a lift from the Metro station to the appartment and while driving to the appartment showed us around the area. What a wonderful service! The appartment was perfectly clean. Joana gave us lots of advices on where to go for sightseeing, shopping and to the beach. She also recommended some very good restaurants to us. Sofia and Joana were the perfect hosts and we shall come back. A big thanks to both of them.
we had a wonderful late-summer week in sofia's appartment in graça, although we didn't met her, but a friend of her did a great job in showing us the area around the appartment and showed all the features in the appartment. it's uncomplicated furnished but with style and an eye of details - even the music cds were chosen. we can recommend the appartment to anyone who loves this city, it's sound (of course of the tram 28) and its vivid nightlife. thank you for the yummie bottle of wine and all the other stuff - i'm quite sure that we will return one time :-)
If you want the PERFECT stay in Lisboa, you need to stay in this appartment. Sofia is the best host we ever had. The appartment is great, on top of one of the 7 hills. We enjoyed our stay. Sofia you're so kind to everybody. We received a lot of nice tips, and even in our next city we received e-mails of you. Thank you so much for everything!
You should definitely book this place! The appartment has a great location, is very stylishly decorated and has everything you might need. Sofia was incredibly nice and went out of her way to make sure we had a great time. She made us feel so welcome by getting in touch with us before we arrived and by emailing us some very good tips during our stay. Coming home to this place and having such a great host was a really nice bonus to this great city!
Wonderfull apartement in the heart of Graca.
Close to nice cafes, restaurants, shops and two wonderful viewing platforms.
Very nice host which gave us very good insider tips.
Hope to come back to this wonderful place.
Sofia was an excellent host: she looked for a place to park our car, she prepared a map (made by herself) explaining which were the most interesting places in Graça and Lisboa (her restaurant-suggestions were great), she took lots of time to explain all the stuff about trams, etc. Briefly, we had a very warm reception. :D
The apartment is exactly as it is described in the website: comfortable, really sunny, fully-equipped and close to Alfama and São Jorge's castle.
We would recommend without doubt this apartment to anyone.
A beautiful, unpretetious apartment in a great neighbourhood! We had everything we need there, including coffee in the mornings. In adition our host gave us a lot of useful recomendations and advices! thank you sofia!
Great place to stay! Sofia's welcome was very warm. She had great tips about the neighbourhood. Visiting Lisboa by tram (jump on line 28 just in front of the apartment!), metro or by feet was very easy. We definitely will come back.
Erg sfeervol appartement op de 4e verdieping in Graza. Leuke buurt met winkels en restaurants. Hartelijke ontvangst door vriendin van Sofia. Sofia heeft in verschillende aardige mails goede tips gegeven en had in het appartement een plattegrond van Graza uitgeprint met aanbevelingen van leuke restaurants, winkels etc.
Heeft ons goed geholpen bij ons bezoek aan Lissabon. Zeker een aanrader dit appartement.
Sapevo sarebbe stato un bel viaggio ma è stato veramente unico. Sofia - la proprietaria di questo spettacolo di appartamento nel quartiere Graça - è una persona speciale, gente come lei fa bene al mondo e resuscita quella bella parola che è "ospitalità". Lisbona non credo abbia bisogno di una mia recensione; una città spettacolare, magica e imperfetta - molto vicina alla mia Napoli, nella luce e nella malinconia che ti lascia quando parti. Se non fosse così lontana ci tornerei nei week-end, quando si ha bisogno di scappare per sentirsi comunque a casa.
