From the crotchet tablecloth to the wicker chairs and exposed stone walls, there's a lot of lovely traditional charm in this home. Set in the Graça neighbourhood, it feels quintessentially Portuguese, with antique furniture and an eclectic interior. The cosy kitchen is strung with pots, pans and old branches, while two living spaces host velvet sofas, towering bookcases and intimate writing desks. The bedrooms are similarly retro, with parquet flooring, maps on the walls and heavy wooden shutters to keep out the hustle and bustle from the cobbled streets below. The charms of the capital are in easy reach, though you can get a taste of the atmosphere just as well from the roof area. Overlooking terracotta roofs and out towards the ocean, the terrace has loungers and a dining set, perfect for alfresco drinks come evening.
