Rental Location for a Month in Lisbon and another in Porto

Jump to last reply

Hi all! It's been a while but I'm back to trip planning.

We will be heading to Portugal (1st time) for 3 months (89 days) Apr-June 2016. I have been thinking of starting with a month in Lisbon, then picking up a car and wandering through the country (with a detour to Seville) for the next four weeks, and finishing up with 3 weeks in Porto.

I need to line up apartments in Lisbon and Porto ASAP but I'm struggling with location within the cities, so I would really appreciate some help.

Our main interest are eating, cooking, food shopping (no other shopping), wandering, visiting sites, sitting down in cafés to people watch with a glass of wine in hand. We are not really party people so we want to be able to retire at night to a quiet apartment.

I'm a runner so proximity to a safe area to go out by myself in the morning (not in the wee hours) would be a big plus.

If someone wants to recommend a particular apartment, we need one with a great kitchen, at least one bedroom (not an open studio) and would love some outdoor space (terrace or big balcony).

Soon I'll be starting new posts for the middle portion of the trip. But I really need to get the apartment thing going now that we have air purchased.
