Lovely apartment in a residential location, very comfortable with good transport links to city.
Maria's apartment is lovely. It is very homely and comfortable with wooden floors and modern furniture. The 4 bedrooms gave us plenty of space. The beds are comfortable and have cotton bedding. The apartment was very clean, well furnished and equipped. The two bathrooms were a bonus. The air conditioning was great but we didn't need it all the time despite the heat outside because the apartment remained fairly cool, particularly when the shutters are closed. The WiFi and satellite TV channels were very useful. The area is a very nice, quiet, residential area with a variety of small shops and cafes close by. The supermarket in the shopping centre a few metres up the road was very well stocked and the Italian ice cream shop is a 'must visit' place as the locals queue down the street for this ice cream!! The metro is a short walk from the apartment and it is only a few stops in to the city. (If you go to the end of the green line, the above ground trains that go along the coast, depart from the same station.) Maria speaks several languages and has very good English. She met us at the apartment to check in and was very helpful. Maria's apartment would suit families and adults who prefer to be away from the tourist crowds and noise but near enough to travel into Lisbon city centre for sight seeing or transport connections. It is on the second floor and there is no lift which would be a problem for anyone with mobility issues but it was fine for us. We loved our stay at Maria's apartment and hope to come back sometime.
