". . . LOVED it. It was spotlessly clean, beautiful decor, and had a great terrace with a beautiful view that we barbecued on, had our vinho verde on(!) and really enjoyed. It's also in a great location."

Perched above the Praça dos Restauradores -- and next to Casa Villa Serra -- this beautifully restored 19th-century townhome is located in the heart of historic Lisbon.

Hidden on a private cobbled lane in the heart of Lisbon's medieval Historic Preservation District, Casa Pátria is one of twelve traditional 19th-century homes that once formed a tiny, self-enclosed village known as "Villa Serra Fernandes."

Today this sleepy "village" is just 8 minutes walk from the Rossio (Lisbon's fabulous main square) with 24-hour taxi stand, world class restaurants, theatres, museums, shopping, metros and the lovely Sintra train station.

Casa Pátria's three-story, tiered floor plan is flooded with Lisbon's famous sunlight. It's perfect for those who will value the dramatic use of open spaces throughout the house.

New! Virtual tour of Casa Pátria:
