"...the best experience of our European vacation. The view was spectacular!
We would stay in any of Deb's properties again and would love to come back to Lisbon."

This beautifully restored 19th-century vacation rental townhome is perched directly above the Praça dos Restauradores, offering unobstructed 180º views over Lisbon's red-tiled roofs.

Hidden on a private cobbled lane -- right next to Casa Pátria -- in the heart of Lisbon's medieval Historic Preservation District, Casa Villa Serra 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.

Whether stretched out on the terrace or curled up on the sofa, the city is literally at your feet; there's nothing else
like it in Lisbon.

From the front door, your living room is straight ahead. The marble stairs, to the right, lead up to the kitchen and terrace.

Quality Portuguese materials are used throughout the home, including flooring of natural cork, marble and ceramic tile.

Casa Villa Serra's terrace is the place to enjoy your morning breakfast pastries from the corner café
or a cold glass of vinho verde on a lazy Lisbon afternoon.

Casa Villa Serra has three bedrooms: one queen bed (160x200cm) and two double beds (140x190cm).

(Although occupancy is capped at six people, with advance notice we can prepare the sofabed
if a fourth bed is required for singles travelling together.)

Every bedroom set is hand-made and represents a different Portuguese century: 1600s, 1800s, 1900s.
Combined with our custom-made orthopedic mattresses and foam pillow-toppers, we think they provide the
perfect night's sleep. As for our luxury linens, we were thrilled when the notoriously difficult-to-please
Sawday's Special Places to Stay inspector declared them "immaculate."
