“…Our family of four adults and two children loved our stay at Casa Joaquina.
…[It] is perfect in so many ways–from the central location, to the many restaurants nearby, to the great amenities (including the basement pool-and-air-hockey table for the kids)…”
– Ckmckn (TripAdvisor July 2014)

This cozy, Alentejo-inspired 19th-century townhome will be your home away from home while you are in Lisbon.

The house is much bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside, and it’s packed with extras. Casa Joaquina has a downstairs gameroom (perfect for teens!), an X-box and a Smart TV. And while it’s true that this is our most famly-friendly holiday rental… if the adults want to use the goodies too, we won’t tell!

Hidden on a private cobbled lane — right across from Casa Villa Serra — in the heart of Lisbon’s medieval Historic Preservation District, Casa Joaquina 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 sipping wine on the rooftop terrace while looking out over the roofs of Lisbon or curled up on the sofa, this holiday rental is the place to relax with — or without!– your family.

What else does our family-friendly holiday rental have to offer?


These amenities are specific to Casa Joaquina. For a more complete list of amenities (linens, fully equipped kitchen, etc.) and services (orientation tour, pre-arrival shopping, and so on) offered at all of our properties, please see our Amenities page.

Pool-and-Air-Hockey Table

The spacious downstairs bedroom is also a gameroom. The small pool table converts to an air hockey table with just a simple flip.

Smart TV and X-Box

If you get tired of the Cable TV channels, this vacation rental has a smart TV and an X-box, which also functions as a DVD player. The X-Box Kinnect and a couple of goofy sports/adventure/dance games means there’s fun for the whole family.

Book and Games Library

There are guide books, novels, board games and a few toys at all of our houses, but–as our most family-oriented rental–Casa Joaquina has by far the largest collection.

Gas Grill and Dining Table

Perfect for an evening barbeque and outdoor dining.


Aside from the ironing board, washing machine, laundry detergent and iron that we have at all the houses, Casa Joaquina has a separate dryer.

 Central Heat

All of our houses have heat, of course, but Casa Joaquina has adjustable radiators throughout the house, controlled by a central boiler.

We had a very nice week. Lots of good food, especially Solar 31 just down the slope. We recommend the ferry across to have lunch. And, most important, ask the [tourism office] for directions to the secret elevators up to the Castle of St. George. Apartment was convenient & well appointed. Thanks, Mel & Grace, […]
