Style Notes

Vintage chic. The 100-year-old building was sympathetically renovated in August 2016, keeping many of the original features, such as the wooden floors, elegant windows and high-wall skirting boards. Much of the furniture is rescued pieces from antique markets and adds a vintage feel, contrasted by sleek modern touches. Portuguese designed and handmade furniture such has the black leather sofa and the vintage wooden arm-sofa lend this place a cozy vintage charm, while industrial chairs and modern Portuguese designer illustrations provide contemporary counterpoints.

We had a lovely time at this place which is well located with a 20min walk downtown and a nice food hall and a grocery store nearby. The house is neatly decorated, and the hosts are very welcoming, including providing great tips and guides for local sightseeing, tours and eating out.
