1991 marks the beginning of a very happy Portuguese-German relationship that started in Berlin during our three-year training to become travel agents. After successfully completing the training, we spent several years gaining valuable experience at specialist travel agencies in Berlin and Lisbon. Eight years later, we took one of our Lisbon friends up on his offer to buy his apartment in Lapa. Having renovated as well as having carefully decorated and furnished the apartment, we regularly spent the winter months in Lisbon with our young daughter. During this time, we developed a keen interest in historic building features, design objects and the restoration of antiques.
Many friends and guests visited our apartment, which prompted us to consider expanding. In 2005, we were able to buy a house in the old town district of São Vicente / Alfama from our former pharmacist Senhor Pereira who had recently retired. Once again, we put a lot of effort into renovating and furnishing four new apartments over a period of two years. This became a tremendous success giving us the opportunity to turn what we love into a profitable business. We have been offering our lovingly restored and furnished apartments to our guests since January 2007 – with excellent feedback. Our highly-motivated teams based in Berlin and Lisbon are committed to giving you the best holiday experience possible. All our apartments are carefully selected. New apartments are only accepted onto our website if everything meets all of our requirements. All photos are taken and descriptions are written exclusively by us. From our first vision up until today, our business has come a long way and we are proud to say that, as of 2017, as many as 18 Portuguese families can live from it. We believe this is the epitome of sustainable and fair tourism.
We are looking forward to offering you beautiful and carefully-selected new apartments in Lisbon in 2017. Using our vast experience, we furnish and decorate the majority of the apartment ourselves. We thoroughly enjoy working closely with the apartment owners, many of whom have become our friends. We are passionate about providing our guests the pleasure of discovering this fascinating city by staying in one of our Lisbon-Holiday-Apartments.
