CONDE REDONDOThe apartment is a wonderful place for a relaxing stay in Lisbon. The equipment provided is above average as well as the excellent rooms. Antonio met is in the apartment even though we were late and explained all the facilities a well as the WiFi . The views aren't the best but the neighbourhood is quiet and there are a number of good local restaurants in the area including Alto Minho (about six minutes walk away). The website photos don't do justice to the size and we had more than enough space for two couples. The selection of DVD's and kitchen equipment is a great bonus. For £460 for 8 nights was excellent value and I have already recommended this to family for a short break. Thank You Carlos and Antonio.
CASA GINJAModern well equipped apartment in middle of alfama district, close to many shops and restaurants.
ALFAMA 4 EVERWe had a really nice time in Alfama-the location of the apartment is superb for the exploration of this part of the city, the two neighbouring fado bars add a special flavour to your evenings/nights and there are many little shops around plus a supermarket at the railway station in the vicinity. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Thanks !

The best of Lisbon
Lisbon was one of the most important cities in the world in past centuries and this is reflected on the number of important historical landmarks in the city; the Castle of São Jorge is a must-see thanks to its history and amazing views from the hill; in Belém, the Tower of Belém and the Jeronimos Monastery are two of the most important places in the city, just like the Monument of Discoveries. To go up to the top part of the city, you have to take the Santa Justa Elevator or the Bica Elevator. If you’re passionate about art, the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum will quench your thirst for it. The cuisine in Lisbon is also delicious and you have to try all the bacalhau dishes and the famous pastéis do Belém cakes as well as listen to fado in Chiado, something that nobody should miss out on.
Rossio is the city centre, where you can go shopping and eat in fine restaurants. For something more authentic, Chiado and Bairro Alto are perfect for a few drinks and dancing in the streets when night falls, just like in Alfama, a great place to rent cheap apartments in Lisbon. In Baixa, you can enjoy all the new city rebuilt after the earthquake and there’s a great atmosphere by the river. Meanwhile, Principe Real is the perfect place for those who want to go designer shopping.
When to visit Lisbon
Summer is when Lisbon has its highest temperatures, averaging well over 70ªF and with much less rain. Portugal is a country where it rains a lot and in winter it can rain quite regularly, although temperatures are moderate and around 55ºF. That’s why between July and August is when Lisbon shines at its fullest, more than any other time of year.
Transport in Lisbon
The trams in Lisbon are famous for their yellow colours and ancient appearance, definitely the most emblematic way to get around. Lisbon taxis also have a reputation, mostly about getting you from A to B too fast for comfort, an amazing experience without doubt. Its airport is well connected with the city centre by public transport.
Festivals in Lisbon
Gastronomic festivals in Lisbon are the most outstanding ones all year long, especially Peixe em Lisboa in April or the Chocolate Festival in March. In June, the Festas de Lisboa, in honour of the city’s patron saint St António, fill the city with colour and music. In Autumn, it’s time for film festivals such as Doclisboa.
