The challenge is to get to know Lisbon "living" the day to day of a neighbourhood with its own identity, in the heart of the city, essentially inhabited by the upper middle class of the Portuguese capital. The answer, Apartment Lisboa Pina Classic, ideal for a stay in Lisbon, on business or holiday. Campo de Ourique is a fantastic and emblematic neighbourhood. Streets, shops and cafés to be discovered at every sight, saying good morning to neighbours at every step. If we had to describe this apartment in one word only, it would be, undoubtedly, "classic"; if we could add another, it would also be undoubtedly, "space", a lot of space! All the... rooms are large and have a soul. It is as if every room had its own life; every time we open a door, we are surprised and doubt if we are in the same house. The living and dining rooms are simple, the décor classic and the atmosphere tranquil. The corridor, of British inspiration, leads to all the rooms: the bedrooms that swing between simplicity and exuberance; the bathrooms, spacious and singular and the kitchen of a rustic nature. The whole house is well cared, some aspects of the original construction were maintained, like the wooden floor. It has the capacity to comfortably lodge 10 people and hence perfect for a big family or several families vacationing together who have chosen Lisbon as their destination. Campo de Ourique, formerly a neighbourhood that housed the workers from the factories of nearby Alcântara, today is one of the city's more cosmopolitan neighbourhoods. It is a residential area but with very active and rich traditional shops, large fabrics stores and, recently, gourmet shops. Situated in the centre of the city, it is easy to travel to all the spots that deserve a visit: Pombaline downtown, Chiado, Alfama, St. George Castle, Mouraria, Belém, among others. A hint from someone who knows: catch tram 28 and follow its route along perennial Lisbon.

Additional Location Information
Campo de Ourique, in the heart of Lisbon, is a neighbourhood with a life of its own. A residential area of the mid-upper class and with a great tradition in commerce, it is considered one of the city's neighbourhoods with the best quality of life. Here it is not difficult to see people greeting, families strolling and shopping. Politicians, artists and journalists choose Campo de Ourique to live and mingle. Situated between Amoreiras, Estrela and Prazeres, until the 18th.. century Campo de Ourique was not part of Lisbon's centre. In the beginning it was ony a windy slope where the factory workers from Alcântara lived. The streets of Campo de Ourique are full of shops, cafés, pastry shops, medical surgeries and offices. Two trams, number 25 (Alfândega/Campo de Ourique) and the legendary 28 (Martim Moniz/Campo de Ourique), make the going easy and give a certain charm. To understand the atmosphere of the neighbourhood, walk through the older cafés: A Tentadora (Rua Ferreira Borges, 1), Ruacaná (Rua Almeida Sousa, 31 A/B) and Canas (Rua Saraiva de Carvalho 145 A/B. Irreplaceable are the visits to the Santo Condestável church, authored by Vasco Regaleira and Campo de Ourique produce market, where you will not resist the Mercado Chocolate chocolateer (Rua Coelho da Rocha). For wine lovers, there is paradise at A Garrafeira de Campo de Ourique (Rua Tomás de Anunciação, 29 A). And since the gourmet shops are in expansion in this area, let yourself be seduced by Oil&Vinegar; (Rua 4 de Infantaria, 29) and Portugal Rural (Rua Saraiva de Carvalho 115 R/C). The Amoreiras area is a natural extension of Campo de Ourique, the neighbourhood's symbol is the Amoreiras Shopping Center, opened in 1985. From the beginning, the shopping center became well known for its daring architecture, by Tomás Taveira. It won the Valmor and the Municipal Architecture prizes in 1993. Here the best brands have their shops. A few steps away, visit the Amoreiras Garden or the Marcelino Mesquita Garden, imagined by Marquês de Pombal and the Mãe d'Água das Amoreiras water reservoir (Praça das Amoreiras, 10).

A terrific place to stay for a group of friends or a large family - or if you just want lot´s of space! The apartment is located close to city buses (the airport bus as well) and the Metro. A shopping mall (with a large grocery store) is also located near the apartment. The apartment had a fully equipped kitchen and a good wifi connection which was much appreciated! Our host anna was very friendly. Thanks for a great week! Everyone agreed on going back to Lisbon sometime in the future.
