In the morning it looks like you wake up between the beginning of the last century, inside an Eça de Queirós’ novel, and you are about to meet one of his characters. Then, late night this neighbourhood gets transformed into of one of the best areas of night life full of young people. Between lunch and dinner time, its an exciting discovery of culture, food and history, 5 minutes away from Portugal's most important museum (Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga), churches , palaces, wondering through the narrow streets, there are incredible little restaurants and shops to discover. (no retail international chains here!)
The 4-window L-shaped living room has a beautiful space and luminosity, a quite corner to read and relax and a spacious dining area. You might love the unique library in the other side and explore a random book off the shelf you never discovered before! With 3 bedrooms and 2 marbled bathrooms (one en suite) and a fully equipped kitchen make up the rest of a lovely ground-floor apartment facing an XVIII century church and a hundred steps away from the train that runs along the beautiful, sunny Portuguese Riviera (ca 25 km up to Cascais).
