Modern Bairro Alto Apartment
- SQM 72
The Modern Bairro Alto Apartment is a third-floor (no lift) bright, stylish property in the famous Bairro Alto district of central Lisbon, and has 2 double bedrooms to accommodate up to 4 guests. The modern, funky decor of this property uses light colors and combines splendidly with the natural light that comes streaming in through the windows in all rooms. The owner's good taste is shown through the accommodation's original and fashionable decor, bringing together different styles and historical periods.
You enter directly into the living room, which contains a mirrored wall on one side giving the living and dining areas a spacious feel, and setting the standard for the decor throughout. Here we can find a comfortable sofa and wicker armchair, dining table and chairs, flatscreen TV and wireless Internet, and the inimitable decor, all bathed in plentiful natural light from the windows which give on to the street below. The striped wall opposite the mirrors and the restored chandelier provide original touches and a colorful style.
There are two bedrooms in this property, each containing a comfortable double bed with quality mattress, bedside tables and reading lamps. Both are well lit with exterior windows, and charmingly decorated.
The kitchen is clean, modern and fully-equipped with all the necessary appliances for a wonderful self-catering stay. It has a lively color scheme, with a delicate china cabinet painted violet, lovely antique stools dressed in acid-treated glass, and a large blackboard to write down your favorite recipes. There is a door which opens out onto a small balcony with a potted plant. The bathroom is also bright and cheerful and includes new fittings and a full bathtub.
The Bairro Luz apartment occupies the third floor (no elevator) of a typical Bairro Alto building located in a small, quiet street of this famous central Lisbon neighborhood.
This is where Lisbon's nightlife is concentrated, since the area is made up of a grid of small, cobbled streets, crisscrossing each other and full of local bars, traditional Fado restaurants, traditional taverns, and excellent restaurants. The streets are particularly lively at night, but the Bairro Luz apartment is tucked away on a small street just far enough away from the action to provide a peaceful night's sleep for the guests staying here.
This entire district is very central, and it is a very good base to visit the rest of the city, with easy access to the Baixa downtown area, the designer shops of Chiado, or the old town Alfama area. Nearby, the São Pedro de Alcântara viewpoint and gardens, seen in the photos above, provide wonderful views of Lisbon's rooftops and across the city to the Castle and the River Tagus.
From this property, it is a quick and easy 10-minute walk to the central Rossio square, where visitors can take the train to Sintra and beyond, or the Metro to other parts of Lisbon.
