When travel accommodation works out well, everything else seems to fall into place. So it was for my traveling twosome in Lisbon.
Maria’s Airbnb flat was immaculately clean and flooded with light – a welcome retreat when sightseeing legs grew sore.
Thoughtful touches, like a complimentary bottle of wine and a shiny red coffee machine (with a good stock of capsules) make a difference. So does a soft stack of fluffy white towels, and an easy supply of basics (dishwashing tablets, tea towels etc).
It’s the perfect place for two.
Maria was super helpful with plenty of suggestions of how best to experience Lisbon, all with the expert knowledge of a local.
Where is it?
In a lovely, quiet residential neighbourhood just five minutes from the Basílica de Estrela. From there you can take Tram 28E to the city centre, the Alfama district and Castelo de São Jorge, or Tram 25E then Tram 15E to Belém.
