The Apartment is set at Calçada do Castelo Picão in the Madragoa quarter, an old and typical working class neighboorhood where fishermens and the fishwives used to live. There´s a Lisbon icon called "varina" that has its origin here, which gives the name to this apartment and is the fishwive with a basket full of fish on her head proclaiming sayings to sell the fish! Here we can find typical portuguese tascas to eat, but very close from here in Santos district we have two of the most emblematic nightlife places in Lisbon: Avenida 24 de Julho and Santos. Also in Janelas Verdes street we can find one of the most important museums in Lisbon: The Museum of Ancient Art. Just a few steps from the apartment crossing the charming Largo do Chafariz e das Janelas Verdes square, you will find this magnificent museum considered to be beyond any doubt the richest and most beautiful in Lisbon with important art collections from the 12th to the 19th century including collections of painting, sculpture, drawings and decorative arts, mostly European and Oriental, and also representing the relationships established between Europe and East following the voyages of discovery began in the fifteenth century that Portugal was a pioneer nation. Next to the museum a peaceful belvedere with insights and viewpoint to the river, Lisbon’s harbour and the 25th April Bridge. Here we highly recommend the ”le chat” cafe esplanade next to this gazebo, one of the best esplanades for sure in Lisbon with stunning views and a modern design.
Going eastwards trough the Janelas Verdes street you find yourself in Santos, the design district and also where we can find the hottest nightspots in Lisbon such as Kapital, Kremlin, or Plateau discothèques among others. Crossing the railway line and already by the riverside you will find open spaces, bicycle and race lanes, the Port of Lisbon and even day and night bars with the best terraces of Lisbon on the Tejo waterfront, as is the case of the Meninos do Rio. On the opposite side and climbing the Lisbon's typical streets from the apartment and heading north, we will find Lapa, a charming and aristocratic neighbourhood. Little by little we perceive the change: from popular, working-class streets with a Renaissance feel down below, we now stroll through the diplomatic and aristocratic air of the Lapa district where large single family mansions, small palaces and gardens surrounded by embassies were built. This must be the "safest area in Lisbon for sure!
The area is well served and connected with public transportation: the bus 727 takes you to the city centre in just 15 minutes and the trains in Santos can take you to Belém, or even outside Lisbon to Estoril and Cascais.
However we are quite flexible to let you in earlier or checking you out later depending on the apartment´s occupancy! We can confirm you all these arrangements the day before you arrive.
Late Check in: Check in after 22:00 has a 20 EUR fee.
An Amount of €150 for stays under 15 days, and €300 for stays of 15 days or more will be asked to you as a guarantee for damages. This amount is to be paid when checking in, in cash and should be refunded to you when checking out.
This procedure may be substituted by the details of the credit card with witch the reservation was made.
The apartment will be ready and cleaned for you before your arrival. Fresh towels and sheets are also provided and all is included in the total price.

very large apartment - centrally located - very friendly and reliable agency - all the best - clean and tidy - not brand new but for a few days completely ok
sehr große Wohnung - zentral gelegen - sehr freundliche und zuverlässige Agentur - alles bestens - sauber und ordentlich - nicht mehr ganz neu aber für ein paar tage völlig ok
We had wonderful days in her apartment! The view is stunning! Not only the river but from all the windows (too bad they were not very clean). Everything worked flawlessly (kitchen, bathroom, wifi super fast, plenty of dishes, clean linen). The location is also good, with bus 714 you can easily reach all major port locations.
We enjoyed the day very much! Thank you for everything!
Wir hatten wunderbare Tage in ihrer Wohnung! Die Aussicht ist umwerfend! Nicht nur auf den Fluss sondern aus allen Fenstern (schade waren sie nicht ganz sauber). Alles funktionierte einwandfrei (Küche, Bad, wifi super schnell, genügend Geschirr, saubere Wäsche). Auch die Lage ist gut, mit Bus 714 erreicht man schnell alle wichtigen Anschlussorte.
Wir haben die Tage sehr genossen! Danke für alles!
Very nice, newly decorated, spacious and quiet apartment.
Everything is there, whether in the kitchen, bedroom or bathroom.
Ideal for two people but can also accommodate three or four people.
Suggestion --- a second access to the bathroom., As the third person must through the bedroom. Sorry!
The apartment is good, bus lines and shopping facilities are just around the corner.
It's worth it, we felt very comfortable, every time again.
Thanks ... Heinz, Doris and Theresa
Sehr schöne, neu eingerichtete, geräumige und ruhige Wohnung.
Alles da, ob in der Küche, Schlafzimmer oder im Bad.
Ideal für zwei Personen, aber auch Platz für drei oder vier Personen.
Verbesserungsvorschlag---einen zweiten Zugang zum Bad., denn die dritte Person muss durchs Schlafzimmer. Leider!
Die Wohnung liegt gut, Busslinien und Einkaufsmöglichkeit sind direkt um die Ecke.
Es lohnt sich, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, jeder Zeit wieder.
Danke...Heinz, Doris und Theresa
Lovely apartment! It was clean and spacious.
Small point for improvement: there was a dishwasher, but there were no dishwasher. This would be handy.
Heerlijk appartement! Het was schoon en lekker ruim.
Klein puntje voor verbetering: er was wel een vaatwasmachine, maar er lagen geen vaatwastabletten. Dit zou wel handig zijn.
Positives: the housing situation, the size of the apartment is well maintained
The downside: the bathroom door to the kitchen and no light in the portal, we had to come up with the mobile light because there's nothing there.
Lo positivo: la situación del alojamiento, el tamaño del apartamento, está bien cuidado
Lo negativo: la puerta del baño da a la cocina y no hay luz en el portal, teníamos que subir con la luz del móvil porque no se ve nada.
Beautifully apartment with stunning views over river and city. Very nice and friendly minibar / mini market just around the corner, authentic Portuguese, like the whole neighborhood.
Disadvantage kits: little tight in terms of crockery when you are with the four. No closing some interior door in the apartment.
Fraai appartement met prachtige uitzichten over rivier en stad. Erg leuke en vriendelijke minibar/ minimarkt direct om de hoek, authentiek Portugees, net als de hele buurt.
Nadeeltjes: beetje krap qua serviesgoed als je met zijn vieren bent. Geen enkele binnendeur in het appartement sluit.
the apartment is centrally located and well groomed the views are breathtaking But the major flaw is the inability to get close to the door to unload luggage also have to climb to fourth without elevator that looks like a floor 11 and to finish the bathroom has a Main unbearable smells unfortunately we repeat this apartment
el apartamento es céntrico y está bien arreglado las vistas son impresionantes Pero el gran defecto es la imposibilidad de poder acercarse hasta la puerta para descargar el equipaje además hay que subir a un cuarto sin ascensor que parece un piso 11 y para rematar el baño tiene unos olores a cañería insoportables lamentablemente en este apartamento nos repetimos
A beautiful apartment. Very bright, very quiet, nicely designed, centrally located, great view from the balcony and the windows over the roofs of Bairro Alto and the river. Key and apartment handover uncomplicated and fix. Kitchen facilities so-so, but the basic equipment is okay. Small problem: the hot water thermal baths we have not got to work, but this was not as critical in the future of our stay. The stairs to the apartment is long and steep, so nothing for people with knee problems. But that has not affected us thank God, everything was cool and my daughter and I are satisfied.
Eine schöne Wohnung. Sehr hell, sehr leise, freundlich gestaltet, zentral gelegen, super Aussicht vom Balkon und den Fenstern über die Dächer von Bairro Alto und über den Fluß. Schlüssel- und Wohnungsübergabe unkompliziert und fix. Kücheneinrichtung so làlà, aber die Grundausstattung ist okay. Kleines Problem: die Warmwassertherme haben wir nicht zum Laufen gekriegt, was allerdings bei der Kürze unseres Aufenthaltes nicht so entscheidend war. Die Treppe zur Wohnung ist lang und steil, also nix für Leute mit Knieproblemen. Aber da uns das gottseidank nicht betroffen hat, war alles cool und meine Tochter und ich sind zufrieden.
easy arrival and departure, typical old house with enough space for 4 people, nice view of the Tagus River and the old town, central, interior of the accommodation in order, but only 2 of 4 hobs available.
unkomplizierte An-und Abreise,typischer Altbau mit ausreichend Platz für 4 Personen, schöner Blick auf den Fluss Tejo und die Altstadt, zentral gelegen, Einrichtung der Wohnung in Ordnung, jedoch nur 2 von 4 Herdplatten verfügbar.
We had a stay with three People and we enjoyed a lot. The flat was absolutely great, clean, quiet and nevertheless central. The correspondence was trouble free. We have even got 2 Keys and there was a Hairdryer actually. Next time we would like book it again. Big thank you!
