WHAT TO DO  –

  • There is so much to see and do without having to leave the neighbourhood – the local attractions are right on your doorstep! Walk to the old plazas and cafes, browse the antique shops, booksellers and vintage treasures (especially around São Bento area). Many boutique shops, galleries, picturesque streets and restaurants are within walking distance of the apartment. Get lost in the maze of streets or take the nearby Metro to access major shopping centres.
  • If you would rather take it easy and spare your soles why not get a Tuk Tuk from your doorstep and have your own private tour of Lisbon? It is a ride you will never forget!
  • Don’t miss the incredible view of St. George’s Castle over the river from São Pedro de Alcântara – it is even more beautiful in the evening. Electric tram nº 28, to get on at the end of the street (be careful with pickpockets), going to Castle and Mother Church (also Antiques Market). You can also get on nº 28 near the Metro station Baixa-Chiado, near the well-known Brasileira coffee house. Suggestion: take the  trolley and go to Lisbon’s famous flea market – Feira da Ladra – held every Tuesday and Saturday. About 5min. from the house is also the Opera House (Teatro Nacional de S. Carlos).
  • Indulge yourself in a shopping spree in Principe´s Real trendy fashion stores or farmer’s market every Saturday…
  • Apartment Chagas is located less than 10min walk from Cais do Sodre train terminal where you can catch the train to the Cascais coast and beach. This apartment is in an excellent location for those wanting to explore the downtown city and all its points of interest such as the Castle, Jeronimos Monastery (Belém area – worth taking the tram!) and Rossio.
  • Take a trip to the magical Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage site, easily reachable by bus or train. Sintra was the first place classified as a ‘Cultural Landscape’ in 1995.
  • Patrícia has put together some information about the apartment and neighborhood, which may prove helpful during your stay: Info recommended by Patrícia
  • From golf, wine tasting, antique shopping, walking, to nightlife, theatre, sightseeing … Lisbon has a lot to offer… and from apartment Chagas there is quick access to shops, restaurants.

    The apartment has a spectacular view from both the sitting room and balcony over the rooftops down to the Tagus river with the 25 April bridge in the middle distance and beyhond. It’s a fabulous aspect both during the day and night. We spent hours just soaking up the city from our perch.
    Even the indoor private car park had windows with views!
    It has a most relaxing feel to it – from the books to browse through to the polished wood floors and (I am almost sure) the Beidermeier furniture – classy yet homely.
    Cafés/restaurants/grocery shops all within minutes’ walk at the very end of the road which is jolly handy.

  2. My partner and I enjoyed a fabulous weekend in this hidden oasis in the very desirable and central neighbourhood of Chiado. With spectular views across the river and nearby restaurants and shops just a few minutes walk away, the quiet tranquillity and tasteful decor offered a perfect retreat from a busy days sightseeing. We had a great long weekend full of good food, drink and adventure – and this place played a key part in our enjoyment of our citybreak. I really couldn’t recommend this apartment more highly – we intend to book it again for next year. We just love Lisbon!!

    This is the perfect place to stay while visiting Lisbon. It is spacious and comfortable with a gorgeous view; centrally located…within easy walking distance to city center.

    After a short taxi ride from Lisbon airport to Apt Chagas, we were warmly greeted by Patricia and her husband. We had some small requests in advance of our arrival and these were fulfilled, we were delighted! What a week we had in Lisbon and what a comfortable stay we had in Apt Chagas. Comfortable, mod cons galore, spacious, elegent and full of surprises. By surprises, we refer to the fairly extensive artwork on display throughout the apt. Each day we discovered a new piece of art to admire and discuss. Fabulous view from the balcony of some of Lisbons skyline, the river and the 25 April bridge. Location is second to none, you can walk to shops, restaurants, train station (which goes to Sintra) and various attractions. We had the best holiday in years, thanks to the efficient booking experience, genuine hospilaity and of course the apt , which make up the Apt Chagas experience!! We would love to return!

    • Dear Mr McFadden,
      Thank you so much for your kind comments. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and had a good experience in this beautiful city… we hope you do return 😉

    We had a wonderful stay in the Apartment Chagas. The apartment is beautifully furnished, in a great location with outstanding views across to The 25 de Abril Bridge and Cristo Rei statue. Many thanks to Iza and Patrica for the kind welcome and hospitality. We will hope to book the same apartment on our next visit to Lisbon.

    What a wonderful way to spend a few days in Lisbon – the apartment is brilliantly located being both central and within an easy walk of Metro and Tram 28 stops, but also in a safe, quiet area with the large patio window and balcony looking across to the Tagus. The very high standard of furnishings, art, equipment and facilities mean that all practical and aesthetic needs are more than met (how nice to walk into somewhere and find it’s just as lovely as the pic’s!). The booking and communication, including travel/transfer information and tips, are so efficiently handled by Isabel whose apartment it is, and Patricia her daughter was so welcoming, helpful and a delight to meet at the beginning and end of our stay, including booking our return taxi. And Lisbon…………possibly now our favourite European city, and so much more to experience on future visits! Tip: Feb weather a little mixed (only to be expected and we were prepared) but we got to do and see everything we had time for on this trip, including the brilliant Oceanaria (perfect on a partially drizzly day) and eating a seafood lunch under an orange tree in the sunshine!

    • Dear Cathy and family,
      Thank you so much for the nice comments and travel tips. Patrícia did mention you were planning on coming back. So glad you enjoyed Lisbon – it is a wonderful, ancient city.
      Note: I am actually a friend, helping with the reservations – I am glad I was of help … and shall you require more in the future, please just send word! Thank you again, Isabel

    Dear Isabel and Patricia, just a quick note to thank you again for our stay in this wonderful home, it was everything I had hoped for and more. The perfect city centre location but very quiet and peaceful. Everything was spotless! I enjoyed it so much and hope to come back again to explore Lisbon more and to relax in such beautiful surroundings. I would recommend anyone who has a few days to take a trip to Sintra and to the coast, so easy and very worthwhile! No end of great place to eat within a short walk too. Flora.

    • Dear Flora – Thank you so much for the nice comments and so glad you had a good stay – we really hope to welcome you back. Regards from all the Apartment Chagas team.

    What a beautiful apartment. Tastefully and elegantly decorated, two lovely bathrooms, great view over the river and bridge from a spacious balcony. Everything you could possibly want. Central location in upmarket area, everything on the doorstep. Would definitely go back. Wonderful service also from Patricia, Iza and Isabel from start to finish. Can’t fault this apartment and would highly recommend.

  10. We stayed in Apartment Chagas a few weeks ago before the holidays. Without a doubt, it is the most beautiful rental apartment we have ever been in! The Chagas apartment team are three lovely and generous women who are a pleasure to work with. Everything was made perfect and truly magical for our stay in Lisbon. The apartment itself is so tastefully decorated that I found myself able to rest my eyes anywhere in any room and be delighted with what is there. It is arranged for someone who wants to be at home in the most comfortable and yet glamorous way. We can not imagine a better situation, a nicer group of people to work with or a more attractive location. We thank you from the bottom of our heart for making out stay in Lisbon something we will remember for the rest of our lives. It was a real highlight!

    We really enjoyed the time at Apartment Chagas. The view at night was spectacular. It is so central to many of the Lisbon locations. The apartment is beautiful and was wonderful to go back to at the end of the day. We could have a rest and then go for dinner in the area. Two places we really enjoyed for dinner were Estes da Bica and Restaurante Floresta do Calhariz.

    • Thank you for your review – the view is something extraordinary! and you can walk just about anywhere from the apartment. Glad you enjoyed your time in Lisbon! Many thanks from the Apartment Chagas team

    This is our second visit to Apartment Chagas and we returned because we love it!! As noted by other guests, one of the highlights of the apartment is the terrace and the beautiful view it offers. We enjoyed the sunsets each evening and on a couple of mornigs we enjoyed the sunrise.

    The apartment is very spacious and has everything that you will need. Regarding the location, you cannot get a more downtown location – you can walk to many of the attractions, train stations and restaurants. There is a supermarket at the top of the street (5mins walk) and a small shop selling fruit/vegetables – they have the tastiest tomatoes!!

    Thank you Patricia and Isabel for making our holiday so special!!

    We look forward to our next visit and we left feeling enchanted!

    Tom & Maria

    Couldn’t believe how lucky we were to be staying in such a beautiful apartment with stunning views over a gorgeous city. We all loved Lisbon and would love to visit again! We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather which meant that we tended to sightsee rather than visiting museums. However, we felt that even if it had been less pleasant weather, there would still be plenty to do! Sintra’s worth seeing if you have time, good overview of the city from tram 28.
