A spacious loft full of light and great views of old town Lisbon, right in the heart of historical Baixa. An oasis of rest and comfort in walking distance from the castle, Tejo river, restaurants, theaters, night life, and the main public transports.
Our Loft (165 sqm) offers varied possibilities to relax and rest - either on the balcony comfortably seating in the "chaise long"-sofa while appreciating the view of the castle and blue sky, or inside lying down in the hammock, or in the XL sitting-sack taking a nap or watching TV, or reading a book in the sofa, or even lying flat on the floor on top of a wool carpet in the zen room. You can even watch and listen to seagulls and swallows.
Each piece of furniture and decoration was carefully choosen to make the space cosy and we hope you will feel it and enjoy it!
The kitchen is entirely equipped, including coffee machine, oven, microwave, water-boiler, water-purifying jar, and all cooking utensils and spices, so you can cook as you wish.
There is free wireless internet always available, a DVD player and a stereo. Feel free to listen to our CD's ou pick a book from our shelves. We do want you to feel at home!
The loft can confortably accomodate 4 people, either 4 adults or a family with children. The main bedroom has a very confortable king-size mattress. The 2nd bedroom has 2 single thick-foam-mattresses on the floor, on top of a wool carpet, which are also comfortable. One can use them together as a double bed or separate as 2 single beds.
It is possible to accomodate 2 more people, to the limit of 6, if you don't mind to sleep in the open space / living room, on a mattress on the floor (we can provide the extra mattress). Each extra person costs 25€ per night.
Interaction with guests
If you need any assistance considering the house, feel free to talk to us - we will keep track of our email and answer shortly. And let us know about special wishes or requests prior to your stay, we will try to fit them. We can also give you tourism and sight-seeing recommendations, if you let us know about your interests.
Other things to note
In hot days putting the blinds down keeps the house more comfortable. Most of the evenings there is a cool breeze coming from the river, so opening the many windows will make the Loft very pleasant. On the rare occasions where there is no night breeze, you can use the fan and the air-conditioning.
Note: Air-Conditioning is up to 3 hours per day included in the price of your stay; if you use it longer, there is an extra fee of 10,- Euros/day.
The Loft is on the 5th floor of an historical building, with a well kept staircase, with wide and easy steps (there is a photo).
We ask you to take good care of our furniture and personal objects.
There will be a general cleaning at the end of your stay, but there is no cleaning service during your stay. But if you wish we can arrange cleaning service while you are at the appartment, for an extra charge.
