Typical character 1-bedroom apartment, located in the historic district of “Estrela”, known for being a residential district, accommodates up to 3 people. In the surroundings you will be able to find “Basílica da Estrela” a XVIII Century convent right in front of “Estrela” Garden, the perfect place to start enjoying what the city as to offer. In this street, between the two places, you’ll find the famous “28” tram stop.
Previously known as “Lapa” this specific part of “Estrela” district is packed with small palaces and mansions that have been reconverted to adapt to the new needs of the population. Here you’ll also find over 10 different embassy and the most important, the “Palacio São Bento” that is currently Portugal’s house of parliament and also “Palacete São Bento”, our prime-ministers official residence. It is here in Estrela, this eccentric and glamorous neighborhood, that stays Casa da Estrela.
Looking at the building you get this feeling like it stopped in time. The narrow building hallway doesn’t allow the addition of an elevator, meaning you’ll have to climb a few steps in order to reach the property.
The apartment is also very picturesque, bursting with character and charm, as the neighborhood. The hard wood flooring across the apartment, combined with the amazing “cage structure” created against earthquakes by Marquês de Pombal makes it very rustic and welcoming. The flat was opened to let in more light, the kitchenette and its breakfast table separates the dining area and finally, the living room by the windows inviting you to sit and relax before heading back out to explore the city.
