Welcome to Your Luxury Family Holiday Home in Lisbon!

Casa Almada is a spacious air-conditioned 220 square meters / 2800 square feet, 3 bedroom apartment, located in a traditional 1930’s building, which has been lovingly restored and completely renovated for modern living. The building is one of Lisbon’s most emblematic, originally owned by the Marquis de Pombal himself. Casa Almada is on the 4th floor, the lightest and quietest location in the building with no noise from neighbours above which can be a problem in the old town.  

I designed the space for families or friends travelling together to be able to enjoy a luxury stay right in the heart of everything Lisbon has to offer. Gather in the large skylit living room where modern furnishings and abstract local art explore a palette of gold and blue. Enjoy a glass of wine from our drinks station set in the stone archway and cook away in the fully equipped kitchen to enjoy unforgettable meals together. 

Casa Almada is the place where families and friends can unwind and relax in pure luxury, styled like a Luxury Family Hotel in the best location in Lisbon.

The apartment right is located in the heart of the old city:

  • Emblematic 28 tram stops at the bottom of the street
  • The Se or Cathedral (the oldest church in the capital) is just around the corner.
  • Walk Everywhere!  Maximize your time in the city by cutting out metro and taxis – We are 10 mins walk to the Sao Jorge Castle, 5 min walk Tagus incl Riverboat terminal & main shopping areas of Baixa and Chiado.
  • Surrounded by great shops and restaurants
  • Good supermarket & Secure Parking at Pingo Doce only a 3 mins walk


If you are also visiting Porto during your trip to Portugal, why not also stay with me there at one of my fabulous places there? Check out my amazing Villa Almada Porto (2 bedroom with private pool) and Urban Retreat Porto (2 bedroom with patio sleeps 9) as I offer dual location discounts.

Note  – there is no elevator in the building but a wide staircase marked by amazing traditional Portuguese tiles.

Guest Access

You can access the building and the apartment 24/7 with your personal access code. Your personal apartment door code is unique to you and only valid during your stay.

The apartment is located on the 4th floor, like many historical buildings in Lisbon, our building has no lift. However, being at the top is an advantage as you get the most light, best views and no noise from neighbours above you which is often a huge problem elsewhere. The stairs also help you burn off the calories from the fresh yummy Pastel de Nata you will be eating from the local bakery each morning 😉

Guest interaction

I love helping people discover the Lisbon I fell in love with and giving them the chance to experience it the way we do as residents. I respond quickly via Messaging Apps and by phone if you have any questions. 

When you arrive we will normally be here to welcome you personally, but I also provide self check-in via your personal door code if you are arriving late. We are always super flexible to try to accommodate late check-out and early / late check-in subject to other guests arriving or departing whenever we can.

Check out my guidebook on the tablet device in the living room for suggestions of things to do and great places to eat.


Walk everywhere!

The apartment is literally in the best location, a stone’s throw from Lisbon Cathedral (Se), the Castle of St George & 150 metres from Lisbon’s most famous square, Praca Comércio.

It’s only 10 mins walking distance from all the vibrant restaurants, bars, shipping & art galleries in Baixa, Chiado, Bairro Alto & Alfama. Explore the Tagus by riverboat, sample amazing Portuguese food at the Mercado da Ribeira, visit the Aquarium or catch the 28 tram from the end of the street.

Getting around

We are only a 15 minute ride from the airport by car. Metro connection is also possible. 

Being in the very centre, you can enjoy the city on foot and won’t need a car as public transport and Uber / Bolt are fast, cheap and ubiquitous.

If you feel like exploring further, maybe to spend a day at Cascais or Estoril beaches, with direct trains from nearby Cais do Sodré train station. Meanwhile the Metro stations of Terreiro de Paco (Blue line direct to the Zoo) and Baixa Chiado (Blue and Green lines) which are both 5 minutes away.

You could / should also get on board to cross the Tagus River to explore the apartment’s namesake town, Almada.

"Casa Almada is a special place in an exceptional location in the heart of Lisboa, but what really stands out is the extraordinary service we received from Susan and her team. I was traveling with my three young adult children. Susan is a truly special person who clearly cares whether her guests are comfortable and happy. I’m so happy we found this gem. Thank you, Susan for helping to provide an amazing experience."
