Studio Two bedrooms

Guy devant un tres beau temoignage.

April 2017 :

I have more french testimonies than english ones but these ones are good ones. I appreciate a lot the visits of Irish, American ( I have lived in San Francisco for a while ) and «pure» English, not to mention the english secondary language countries with east european accent or others ...
Here after are the testimonies in English, much more are available on the french equivalent page and several in the spanish section.

Sylvie and Bob from Prigonrieux -France - ( November 2015 )

C'est avec regret que nous quittons ce petit studio «sous les toits« où l'on se sent «comme à la maison», et Lisboa pleine de charme où nous avons eu plaisir à nous balader, à notre rythme, au hasard des rues et des quartiers, avec un petit coup de coeur pour la Mouraria... Merci Guy pour ta gentillesse et ta disponibilité... Tout était bien...
I love also the apartment : the paintings, the lamp above the entrance, the view outside. Also the closenesse of the tramway and the station. Now we know a good adress to stay in Lisbon : «Livbon»! Thanks.

John and David from Spain ( April 2015 )

Once again in Lisbon, this enchanted city!
Once again staying in this delightful appt of Guy's, so well located in the centre of this magnificent city. Easy access by train, tram, bus, very comfortable appt with everything you need. Thank you Guy we will return.
Very best regards.
PS : Well worth the 3 day drive to get here.

Caroline et William de Montreal ( Juin 2014 )

Deja 5 jours que nous sommes ici, a profiter de la magnifique ville de Lisbonne et des environs. Ville agreable et securitaire, ou il fait bon flaner et decouvrir... Les gens de Lisbonne sont a la fois accueillants et discrets, et nous laissent entrer dans leur univers a notre façon.
Ce fut un plaisir de vivre un temps soit peu au Portugal, ou la langue est agreable a ecouter... Merci a Guy pour un appartement chaleureux et accueillant ou il fait bon se refugier apres nos longues journees ensoleillees...

Guy et Lorraine de Montreal ( Mars 2014 )

Agreable sejour et de nouvelles connaissances. Un endroit a recommander et un hote accueillant. Nous esperons pouvoir y revenir. Ce fut pour nous un printemps premature.

Marina et Oleg de Paris ( Janvier 2014 )

Meme si je suis déja venue à Lisbonne auparavant, je suis contente de pouvoir dire, tout comme Oleg qui vient pour la premiere fois, que 30 rua da Silva sera desormais le veritable point de depart et le repere principal dans notre decouverte de l'univers Lisboete et - pourquoi pas - lusitanophone.
Un tres grand merci au proprietaire des lieux a l'origine de cette magie. ( et de ma part un grand merci a Oleg qui me permet d'envoyer un peu de russe aux amis que j'ai la bas )

Earl et Jonathan de Brookyn NY ( Decembre 2013 )

Merci bien Guy, pour un sejour chaleureux et agreable a Lisbonne. L'appartement se trouve tres proche de beaucoup de decouvertes lisboetas, le musee Gulbenkian, les ruelles et les restaurants du Bairro Alto, et meme les fameux pasteis de Belem!
Vous souhaitons boas festas.

Lisbon is fantastic city, climate is perfect and people are friendly. Here is so much to see and do. This area is lively in a good way. From this street you can find everything. Studio is nice, full of light, calm, relaxing. In the night you can see the moon from a roof window! Especially I want to say thank you to Guy. He made staying here safe and confortable. Surely will come back again to Lisbon.

Katleen and Mike Austin TX ( July 2008 )

What a great vacation we have spent in this wonderful apartment on Rua da Silva! We feel that we avoided the "occidental tourist" role(s) by staying in the Santa Catarina area in our "home away from home" ... We will certainly recommend this wonderful apartment to all our fellow travelers. Thank you, Guy, for making our vacation such a rich experience, we hope to see you in Austin one day.

Joseph from New York-Brooklyn ( September 2007 )

Having never been to Lisbon or Portugal, all I knew came from guidebooks and the stories of friends. Truly I have had a wonderful experience, and in eight short days I believe I have seen ...  une grande mercie à Guy for opening his home to visitors such myself. Staying in the studio allowed me to step directly into the life of someone who lives in Portugal ...  muito muito obrigado pour tous!
