Exceptional, beautiful and spatious apartment. Great location. Was perfect for 8 people (3 couples, two children). In two of the bedrooms there's some trafic noise (the trams especially), but after all the apartment is in the center of a big city. We had wonderful time!

An amazing antique apartment in the midst of a small beautiful city palace furnished to feel like you are a guest in the historic home of a civilized and cultured aristocrat providing wonderful space, comfortable bedrooms, a living room you won't want to leave and a welcoming kitchen. After two weeks here you want to stay to forever. For a glimpse of -- and experience of -- what living inside the wonderful small palaces of Lisbon feels like, this is the place to stay. A really comfortable environment that retains the look and feel of the 18th century !
