This light-filled duplex, is the perfect place for those willing to experience the Lisbon old center. It is right in the heart of the city and on the other hand, far away from the busy and noisy capital :) The studio is very cozy and nice, great choice for an economic stay without renouncing the deserved comfort of a visitor.
Upper floor, kitchen, 1 double bedroom and 1 wc. Lower floor, 1 double bedroom, 1 lounge with sofa-bed for 2 and 1 wc. Cable TV and free WIFI in both floors.
Located on Pena, a historical district of Lisbon and one of the seven hills of the city. On the studio's street is the birthplace of Amália Rodrigues, the Fado's Diva. A bit up the street, the visitor can also find the house where Luís de Camões (portuguese famous poet) lived.
Many tourists pass through Pena every day, down and up the hill!
Down the hill, is Rossio, Praça da Figueira, Avenida da Liberdade, Largo de São Domingos and Rua das Portas de Santo Antão.
Up the hill, 5 minutes walking from the studio, you can get to Campo de Sant'Ana with its nice garden "blessed" by Dr. Sousa Martins, saint to whom many offer their devotion, right in front of the beautiful and graceful building of Faculty of Medicine of Lisbon. Above you can also visit Ascensor do Lavra (old lift) and a few meters ahead, Jardim do Torel. Here you can have a comfortable rest and watch the beautiful sunset, with its amazing views on the Avenida da Liberdade and Baixa. The experts say that in the trendy and cozy café of Torel, one can eat the tastier chévre toast of Lisbon (something not Portuguese, but very tasty!!!!). The Jardim do Torel, surrounded by splendid old palaces, is (still) one of the treasures of the romantic Lisbon, saved from the confusion of other points of the city. Keep the secret ;)
For organic enthusiastics, it is available on demand an organic basket with fresh vegs and fruits. I pick it up in an organic farm in Azeitão, a little place 30 Km's away from Lisbon, worth a visit (ask me how!). Azeitão is a picturesque place, untouched nature with fresh oceanic breeze and "birthplace" of the delicious Tortas de Azeitão and Queijo de Azeitão, as well as region of great awarded wines.
The kitchen is equipped with stove, refrigerator, washing machine, toaster, coffee maker, kettle, electric juicer, all the necessary utensils to prepare meals. Hair dryer, heaters and fans, TV, WI-FI internet and local phone are also available.
