Step directly from your ancient cobblestone lane into this private sunlight-filled, 19th-century home with its charming view of the Igreja do Carmo, Lisbon's soaring monument to the 1755 earthquake.
A quick three-minute walk to the Rossio, Casa Travessa provides easy access to shops, restaurants and transportation... while hidden away on a quiet residencial street. Compact and cozy, Casa Travessa is a perfect base for exploring Lisbon.
Available in April 2005, decoration is still in progress but, as with Casa Joaquina, will feature handstitched Arraiolos rugs, Portuguese furnishings and local artwork and pottery. The bedroom has a double bed and the living room provides a sofa/trundlebed which easily converts to two comfortable twin beds. (No uncomfortable sofabeds allowed!)
NOTE: Casa Travessa and Casa Santana are in adjacent buildings, conveniently providing privacy and proximity for family and friends traveling together.
