Sete Colinas Apartment
- SQM 60
The name of the Sete Colinas Apartment means « seven hills » to evoke the geographic characteristics of Lisbon, our only twist to the truth is that you can only see five hills from the balcony of the flat. Now you understood that this holiday accommodation with 60sqm is very sunny and bright as situated on the 4rth floor of a historic typical building of the 19th century (no elevator!). Having just been fully remodeled, it kept the ancient floors, ceilings and the old fireplace in the kitchen, but now offers most high level and modern comfort with its two colorful bedrooms with views. Here 4 people can have a very pleasant stay because each bedroom has a double bed. The main living room opens towards a balcony surrounding the apartment and has been designed and furnished to provide you with rest after your long walks in the streets of Lisbon. The bathroom is simple but efficient and has been completely remodeled. You have wifi connection throughout and cable tv to relax and keep in touch with the news back home. Finally, in the Sete Colinas Apartment there is a true fully equipped kitchen should you want to prepare your own dishes. An ideal place for an unforgettable stay with views.
The quarter of the Pena which comprises the Sant’Ana hill is one of the oldest historical districts in Lisbon. In 1580 died here the famous poet Luis de Camões, author of « Os Lusiadas » and in 1920 was born in the same place Amalia Rodrigues, the well-known Portuguese fadista. The area owes even more history, in this very building where the accommodation is, lived Antero de Quental who had had an extensive letter exchange with the famous writer Eça de Queiroz for years. This quiet neighborhood has still many XVIIIth et XIXth century palaces, like the Palace of Bemposta, the residence of the queen D.Catarina de Bragança, widow of King Charles II of England, in the early XVIIIth century. Only 100 mètres away, have a walk in the garden of Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, a green space in the center of the city with a public parking lot. Here you will be surprised by the spontaneous religious fervor of Portuguese people who have honored the statue of doctor Sousa Martins in front of the faculty of medicine for more than a century. Don’t forget that you are located at the top of a hill and go to the Miradouro/ Garden of Torel and admire the view over the occidental part of the city, the avenue of Liberdade, the Eduardo VII Park, and the São Roque hill. We have two choices: One is if you want to go down to the center and towards Rossio or two if you want to go by the avenue da Liberdade: walking down the calçada de Santana, a very steep slope leading to the squares of Rossio with many restaurants and shopping zones or alternatively (and a MUST for the return) take the funicular of Lavra, the first transportation to overcome a hill in Lisbon 120 years ago, it links the Largo da Anunciada (at the foot of the hill) with the Travessa do Forno do Torel (at the top).
