A neighbourhood full of history & traditions, where everyday life unfolds with a different pace, it's easy to forget the fact that we are in the centre of the capital city of Portugal.

Not only is this apartment situated within the quiet & calm closed community of Bairro d'Estrela, but is also just 3 minutes walking distance from the highest and most magnificent viewpoint in all of Lisbon - Miradouro Senhora do Monte.
Guests will not only have access to the entire apartment, but also to the entirety of the Bairro Estrela d'Ouro where there is on-street parking. You can also visit the wonderful Manor House on the premises - now converted into a retirement home.

Interaction with guests
I am always available to provide you with any information you might need to know about Lisbon. I will offer you tips about the best places worth visiting as well as where you can enjoy true, authentic Portuguese meals at the best prices.
All of my apartments are within 5-10 minutes from where I live - which was a choice made with you in mind as well as the personal service I enjoy to share with my guests. So, please never hesitate to contact me as needed.
In the neighborhood of Graça, between Rua Senhora do Monte and Rua da Graça, next to the famous tram 28 and the viewpoint of Senhora do Monte, a hidden village is still hidden in the heart of Lisbon ... The neighborhood Bairro Estrela D Ouro.
It was built at the beginning of the twenty century by the industrial Agapito Serra Fernandes to house his family and his workers. From here he also made his residence, just as in the middle of the Graça street (rua da Graça) he built a cinema - Royal Cinema - the first cinema in Lisbon to produce a sound film. Today there is no cinema, thus giving place to a supermarket, and of these times already left there remains only the facade and the clock inside.
Let yourself be missed walking the streets of the neighborhood (which all of them gave names of their families) rosalina, virginia ... And marvel at the details left ... Stars on the sidewalks, stars forged in iron ... Marvelous Wall coverings ...
This is the identity of Lisbon ....
I'm always available to provide you with personalised information that will make your holiday a genuinely pleasurable experience.
