Description(Reference number: 76215)
With books, board games, a film library, darts and even mini-golf, you certainly won’t be bored at this classic Lisbon home. A beautiful back garden filled with plants, birds and fish makes for the perfect entertaining spot – throw dinner on the grill or pass time idly on the outdoor sofa with some Vinho Verde in hand. The older architecture of the building gives the home plenty of character – we love the high ceilings with plaster moldings, massive working fireplace, and marble floors. There’s an understated elegance to the home and a comfortable, lived-in family vibe, all while preserving the feeling that this stay is entirely unique. You’ll be steps from one of the most magical lookout points in the city – Senhora de Monte – and surrounded by the district of Graça. It has the local atmosphere of an old neighbourhood – full of shops, butchers, restaurants and cafes, while still being central to the sights of the city. Hop on the legendary yellow tram 28, which passes 100 metres in front of the home, and ride it to the top of Lisbon’s hills to admire the city’s architectural treasures. You’re only a twelve-minute walk from the beautiful buildings and streets of Alfama, where Lisbon’s charm is sure to take hold of you.
