Charming late 19th century flat in old historic Mercês (now Misericórdia) district, one of the most appealing historic districts of Lisbon, near Praça das Flores, 100m, Praça do Príncipe Real, 350m, and at walking distance to the Parliament, 200m, and many other interesting spots such as Bairro Alto, Chiado, Santos, the river, etc, without the disadvantages of being noisy or crowded. Quiet street with abundant trade in the neighbourhood: small markets, cafes, restaurants, antiques, old books, old Portuguese tiles and fashionable up-scale stores. A number of historical and cultural buildings are in the vicinity – churches, museums, opera and monuments – and lovely romantic gardens. It's a little bit like living in a small village...
The flat was recently (June 2014) and genuinely restored. It is composed of 2 bedrooms, a spacious living room, a bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen leading to the living room, a small balcony and a storeroom. All woodwork (doors, windows, etc) were kept and thoroughly restored to their initial condition. The total area is of 70 m2 (753 ft2).

We had a wonderful time. The apartment was clean and very comfortable. The owners were welcoming and helpful. The neighborhood had a nice park, grocery store, cafe, bar and restaurant. The location was within easy walking distance of the main sights and close to train stations for day trips.
I would go back tomorrow and recommend it to all my friends. Enjoy!

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour en famille dans cet appartement confortable, propre et aménagé avec goût. La literie est de bonne qualité. Il est bien situé pour découvrir le centre de Lisbonne, à pied ou en empruntant les transports en commun. Jorge et Margarida parlent très bien français et sont des hôtes accueillants et disponibles. Nous recommandons cette location.

We stayed here for four days and had a marvellous time, despite the rain! It is a lovely flat with all amenities provided. The area is quiet, has local shops, bar and restaurant and is very close to the botanic gardens, museums and other tourist attractions. We were met by Margarida at the flat and had a very helpful introduction to both the flat and the area. Jorge dealt very quickly with a plumbing problem and resolved it very efficiently. Nothing was too much trouble, including booking us cabs for a very early start on leaving. We would definitely return to both Lisbon and this flat, both are charming.
