Luis is the best! He is your consummate host in Lisbon, offering you a great central location for home base, a mobile phone for emergencies, and a fabulous breakfast to send you off for the day.
Our terrace room was the smallest in the house, but no worries. Great patio with chaises for relaxing and viewing the city. The bath is very tiny, but certainly adequate for most. Just a shower -- no tub. Great memories of tea and biscuits (or pastries from Belem) on the patio --resting the mind and the feet after a long day walking.
Luis had one room repainted while we were there, and he has other accommodations in Lisbon. He is always working to keep his properties in tip-top shape. You will not be disappointed. Very clean and crisp. Full of books. A computer/ printer at your disposal.
Very much a family atmosphere with Luis as the big brother guiding you and giving his susggestions to make your days memorable. So knowledgeable, he is able to help customize your schedule around your special interests. Luis usually stopped by during yummy (lots of choices - breads/ biscuits/danishes, fruit, cereals, eggs, meats, cheese) breakfast or early evening (some sherry or wine perhaps) to check on guests and to see how he could be of help. First class service!
And do not go to restaurants without asking Luis first. We did, and we regretted that first night's "tourist" dinner. After that, we went to Signal and Cafe Buenos Aires-- superb! He made the reservations and we just headed out for a delicious meal.
We missed the Fado as I was under the weather, but the rest of the house went and thoroughly enjoyed an authentic experience. Talk to Luis -- don't fall for the "tourist traps."
Our recommendations of sights -- Tile Museum, Botanical Garden, Gulbenkian Museum, Belem (Tower/ Monastery/ Pastries). Lisbon is a walking city full of one of a kind views and experiences. Public transportation is very easy as well.
We only spent 3 days/nights in Lisbon. We look forward to a return trip and will be looking to stay with Luis!
Note: Lots of steps to get to Zuza and in the house. And the rest of Lisbon as well. :-)
