About the Homestay
Our apartment is very bright, cozy, ethnic décor and open-space. It is perfect for a one single person or couple, even with 1 kid/baby (small bed in request). You will sleep in the kids bedroom, a double bedroom (they will sleep with me don´t worry) :) well, in fact i´ll have na excuse to sleep with them.
Fresh sheets, towels and bathrobes are provided. Shared bathroom. In your room you will have a kettle with tea and coffee, fresh water and some cookies. Continental "homemade" breakfast provisions are provided as: iogurt or milk, normal/toasted bread, jam and butter, orange juice or fruit, coffee/tea, eventually eggs. Is also possible to have a Portuguese meal with us. During week days, bedding, cleaning of the room and shared areas (like the toilet) will be provided. You can access some facilities of the house: shared bathroom, dining room (for breakfast), living room (for a glass of wine, for example) and fast wi-fi connection. Cooking in not allowed.
The apartment is on the 2nd floor without elevator but do not worry because I do it every day even with little children.
Have an unique experience with a young Portuguese family that loves to travel in a nontouristic neighborhood Conde Redondo, friendly and quiet, with shops nearby, like, minimarket, farmacy and a homemade brewery.
We live in the city center, so you can reach easily by walking: Avenida da Liberdade (1km), Marquês de Pombal (1.5km), Martim Moniz (1.5km), Chiado and Bairro Alto (2.3km), The Castel (2.7km).
ABOUT OUR FAMILY AND ME.......................................................................
MY biggest PASSION IS TRAVELLING, discover the unknown and losing myself in the sounds, smells and rhythms of distant countries...but i hate to pack (now I have a minimalist backpack, so it should work!)
Something draws me to Africa and I don´t know why!
I love being outdoors, whether in the city or in the countryside...
I love to dance (almost everykind).
It feels so good to show the world to my kids (Maria Rita 4 years-old and Eduardo Maria 2 years-old).
My life motto: do whatever it´s funny or important!
Because all of this i love to open the doors of my home and meet new people and try to give a local experience in my city.

A perfect stay! Sharing time with Ana Rita and Bruno as a guest in their stylish apartment made my whole Lisbon experience so comfortable and authentic. The family, including two very adorable young children, have become very experienced in arranging short-stay B&B and planned many extra touches such as a welcome letter in English, personal bath robe, hairdryer and complimentary tea service in the guest room. The location is within less than 5 mins walk from Marques de Pombal metro station, or perfect strolling distance (10-15 minutes, max) into the city centre - do remember there's many steep hills if you're booking Lisbon ;-) Ana Rita was extremely eager to help me feel right at home and she generously spent much time chatting socially in the evenings too. Their guest book is already filling up with warm compliments from many different international travellers - all the praise is hugely, hugely deserved in my opinion. *** Thank you so much again! ***
