Perks for the Parents

This elegant apartment with a lovely garden with lemon trees and play equipment is just across the river from MAAT (Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology). It sleeps up to 7 + 1. This apartment would ideally suit 2 adults, up to 5 children and 1 baby. The house is bright and spacious with a sleek kitchen and ample dining area. A supermarket and local shops are within walking distance so guests can shop locally, cook and enjoy leisurely, warm evenings on the terrace. This is also a sanctuary for parents who can enjoy a glass of wine here when the kids are asleep.

Why Kids Love it

This residence is usually a family home for 4 children aged 1 to 8 so there’s everything you might need for this age group. This includes a baby crib, high chair, toys, books and Lego. There’s also a beautiful, sunny garden with lemon trees to explore and play in and a table for painting and drawing. The big attraction for young children will be the playhouse with a fort, sand pit and slide and the outdoor shower that’s great for cooling off when it gets too hot. Kids will love eating pastéis de nata, Lisbon’s famous creamy custard tarts from the bakery just down the street.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 nights. Maximum stay: 7 nights. Safety notes: there is a baby gate located at the top of the stairs. A baby crib, tummytub or a baby bathtub, and a high chair can be provided on request. Parking on the street is easy and free and there is a free car park at the rear. A bus stop is right outside the front door. Pets are not allowed. This is an eco-friendly house and it uses fan convectors instead of air conditioning. Due to its construction, the house is naturally cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Fly into Lisbon Portela Airport, a 20-minute taxi ride, depending on traffic.

About the Location

This family home is in the Belem district of central Lisbon, on the historical street of Rua da Junqueira. It’s a family-friendly neighborhood filled with tree-lined plazas and parks to walk, bike or run next to the River Tejo Tagus. There are historic sights including the panoramic view from Padrao dos Descobrimentos monument and the UNESCO-protected Belém Tower. Within walking distance is a bakery and a supermarket to buy local produce. Central Lisbon is a 20-minute by taxi or you can get there by bus, train or boat (there’s a river boat stop 10 minutes’ walk away).

Style Notes

Cool, fun and contemporary. This house was renovated for a growing family and has a modern interior set in an historical building with an old 18th century well, which is properly locked with an iron security grid. There are neutral walls with traditional blue tiling, wooden floors throughout and antique furniture mixed with contemporary pieces. The outside space is a gem with the lovely wooden dining table under the lemon tree and the playhouse that will provide hours of fun for the kids. We love the clean lines and white décor; the perfect mix of old and new; and the beautiful tiled exterior.
