Joao was a perfect host. He always responded very quickly and helped us out on some travel difficulties we had. The appartment was perfect for our needs. It had the amenities we needed, food is such good value we tended only to stay in for breakfast. Local food shops and small supermarket on the next parallel street, metro 5 minutes away. The appartment is an array of cobled streets with charecterful buildings, little individual resteraunts scattered amongst the properties. You realy felt like you were living with the locals. The street is lovely and quiet even though it is in the centre of Lisbon. For 4 people it is a perfect appartment, for 6 you would probably need to be family or very close friend.
