Great 1 bedroom flat in Lisbon (Alcantara) for short/medium stays

This is a modern flat with 1 double bedroom, 1 living room, kitchen and bathroom (total of about 70sqm). It is bright, stylish, and has everything that is needed including cable TV, Wi-Fi connection, and a well-equipped kitchen (with dishwasher, washing machine, and microwave). It fits 2 people comfortably but one extra person may sleep in a folding bed in the living room. The building has a lift and is fully accessible. There is an underground parking space that can be made available by request.

The building is part of a larger residential project built in a former factory site. The project is contemporary, featuring large windows in all the flats, but the old chimney has been retained giving charm and character to the adjacent public spaces.

Location: Conveniently located close to the river and between two main touristy areas (Baixa/Chiado and Belém) with easy access by public transport (buses, trams and railway). Baixa is 20 minutes away and Belém is 10 minutes (or a nice 30 minutes walk). The 25 Abril Bridge gives access to the beaches on the south side of the river and the nearby train station to Cascais.

There are several universities and research institutes nearby or in a good commuting distance such as: School of Agriculture (ISA), the University of Lisbon Campus in Ajuda (that includes the Faculty of Architecture - FAUL, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, and School of Social and Political Sciences - ISCSP), Lisbon School of Economics & Management (ISEG); Lusíada University; Champalimaud Foundation, and IADE.

The neighbourhood: Alcântara is a former industrial neighbourhood with a creative vibe that retains features of a traditional Lisbon neighbourhood such as the seafood eateries “Marisqueiras”. There are shops, restaurants and supermarkets nearby as well as the LX Factory, a former factory that hosts creative industries, restaurants, a beautiful bookshop and events. The river is a stone’s throw away and you can enjoy the bars/restaurants in “Docas” or walk along the beautiful riverfront. There are interesting museums nearby: Oriental Museum, Ancient Art Museum, and the new MAAT (Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology
