Bookworms listen up – this home showcases such a huge amount and vast range of books, you'll absolutely never get bored. With reads in all different languages, you'll be captivated by the vast variety of literature decorating the home. Just remember to leave the apartment every once in a while, because Lisbon is at your doorstep and you're positioned in one of the most central, picturesque and safe neighbourhoods of the city. Stroll just two minutes and you'll arrive at the Amoreiras Garden – a firm favourite hang out spot for the locals. And with charming cafes, street art, trendy second-hand stores and one of Lisbon's best chocolate shops all within walking proximity of your home, you don't have to venture too far to lap up the best parts of Portuguese local living here.
Home truths: *The third bed is tucked away on the mezzanine level, so you may need to crouch down when moving around up there as there's not a lot of head space
*Guests have to climb four flights of stairs to reach the apartment (there is no lift), so it's not suited to those with mobility difficulties
*Children's amenities including a high chair, cot, books, toys and tableware are all available at the home
*The home's uniquely busy interiors admittedly aren't to everybody's taste
