A treat to be in the centre of the city, but down a side street protected from trams. Step inside a superbly renovated 18th-century coach house to find two snug apartments, each with its own entrance. These are not view-filled spaces – ground-floor windows face the street – but are comfortable and cosy and protected from the world.
The living area and kitchen are open plan and you’ll find everything you need to cook along with cheese, milk, ham and fresh oranges. Lovely Teresa thinks of everything, lives nearby and is a tour guide who knows all the off-the-beaten-track places and the fado restaurants and clubs; she also leaves everything you need for breakfast out every day.
Shopping is a delight here; from local millinery to high-fashion stores and even if you don’t buy anything it’s great fun window shopping.
