A peaceful haven for Lisbon sight-seers and culture vultures

"Next to Monsanto Park, here you have Lisbon’s highlights on your doorstep while enjoying peace and quiet." - 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, this palatial home 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 jetsetters 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.

Living Areas

Here, you will experience a lovely marriage between tradition and modern comfort with floors decked in light wood that contrast with marble frescos in blue and grey tones. A sense of peace and serenity permeates the home making it a lovely place to spend time with family and friends on a city break any time of the year.

Inside, you can relax on the ground floor in the main lounge or enjoy the quiet area up the stairs to read a book or enjoy a cheeky siesta. From the ground floor lounge, you can access a quaint terrace through patio doors – one of the many outside areas for relaxing, socialising and dining.

The circular pool is reminiscent of a bygone age and provides a picturesque focal point for guests.
