Well after a few months of hard hard work, our first Lisbon apartment is ready to go. Our first offering in the Lisbon market is the ground floor of this beautiful typical townhouse, located in Lisbon’s wonderful Principe Real neighborhood.
This is the first of three beautiful apartments we will be offering our guests, all part of our Novo de Loureiro (New Laurel Street) townhouse. The pretty pastel pink facade is quintessential Lisbonesque. The entire building is being renovated floor by floor in order to combine the beautiful surroundings with very comfortable and trendy interiors. The process is moving along quickly, despite the huge undertaking we had to accomplish. Imagine what the ground floor looked like when we first received the keys….
The ground floor Laurel Lover’s Hideaway moved quicker than expected. We only had to redo the electricity and plumbing, install a new bathroom and kitchen and give the entire apartment a full head to toe painting….
As always, our apartments all have cable tv, and high speed WiFi, top quality sleeper sofas in the living area, and top quality queen size beds to ensure our guests a great night’s sleep.
Although a fan of contemporary decor and style, I still appreciate some of the unique historic designs we find in many European settings. Portugal is famous for it’s beautiful, bright and colorful Azulejo tiles. These tiles include Moor and Asian influences through the centuries and add a nice touch to a modern setting as well.
Our first apartment is ready for rentals and we will shortly be adding on two more beautiful apartments including the first floor two bedroom/two bathroom unit, and the duplex located on the top two floors of our Laurel Hideaway townhouse. Coming soon…..
