Casa do Presidente
"A peaceful haven for Lisbon sight-seers and culture vultures.” - Reviewed by Deborah
Imagine Lisbon’s bustling highlights on your doorstep while you bask in the luxury, tranquility and comfort of this captivating home sheltered within ‘the lungs of Lisbon’ – otherwise known as Monsanto Forest Park. Surrounded by pine trees, Casa do Presidente provides a unique, peaceful setting for your city break in one of Europe’s most enchanting cities.
Originally built in 1860, the home was recently remodeled to include all the creature comforts and luxuries that discerning jet-setters have come to crave – all while exhibiting impeccable taste. There is something refreshing about the way antiques contrast with neutral, airy spaces in this home that was originally built as the residence for the Mayor of Lisbon.
Besides city, water and forest views, you are sure to enjoy the spacious exteriors which span approximately 1,000 sqm (almost 11,000sqft). Apart from the main house, there are two cozy annex buildings: one serving the swimming pool while the other provides staff quarters.
Just a 5-minute drive from the most important sights and monuments in Lisbon – including restaurants, shops and museums – this home is the perfect choice for groups who want to sight-see but also escape the hustle and bustle of the city. And, for those who like to stay healthy and fit while enjoying a city break, you can make the most of running and cycling tracks, walks, tennis, golf, rugby, soccer and water sports nearby.
