i am finally back from my travels, oh-so-happy to see my sweet pup lucy and sleep in my own bed, and also jetlagged and on the mend from one of those nasty travel colds — but not without fond memories from both spain and portugal. we added on a visit to lisbon at the last minute, and were most fortunate to find the most charming place to stay! so first up on my holiday recap is baixa house — a gorgeous 13 unit apartment in the heart of lisbon. we found this gem via petite passport, as well as a number of other invaluable spots to see on our travels, so be sure and check out world traveler pauline’s beautiful and informative blog!

baixa house was the loveliest apartment to stay in — central to everything including loads of great restaurants, shopping and sites to see all within walking distance and also very afforable. designed by a spanish designer, it was full of unique vintage but comfy pieces and decorated with fresh flowers — it’s those little things that make a place special and memorable. each morning they hung a bag of fresh baked bread at our door and the fridge was stocked with fresh yogurt, cheeses, butter for our bread. there was always fresh coffee and milk, too. we stayed in unit 4b, campo grande — the space is minimalist chic and spare in that perfectly european way — with beautiful morning light, so there was no need to rush out the door to hunt for breakfast. i was content right where i was, eating at the beautiful old farm table and taking in the picturesque view from the fourth floor.

both bedrooms were super charming, too — one with a whimsical mural and the most interesting bedside tables and lamps. the other, with fab orange chairs and a wall of vintage wicker mirrors. both rooms had comfy queen-sized beds and large french doors to admire the view from, not to mention a lovely marble bathroom and plenty of fresh linens and towels. if you’re headed to lisbon anytime soon, i highly recommend looking into a stay a baixa house. more about our trip to lisbon coming up!

    We slept in two AirBNB’s in the spring. Both were lovely. What I found remarkable is that even though they were both not really my taste that they were both very well done in a way that made me feel “Yes this is just beautiful and right.” And I didn’t feel the need to change anything.
    I do see the criticism that Airbnb’s ruin cities cultures by displacing locals. Our first house was in a remote rural area in Italy and you could see quite a lot of “deserted” houses there. If Airbnb could work as a means to revive areas like that, that would be wonderful. Also if hotels recognised that these apartments offer something they are lacking that would be brilliant (we went to Paris with our children, being in a hotel just does not work on a lot of levels).
    This house looks beautiful. I’d love to go to Portugal as well.

    My husband and I stayed at a different property but run by the same company in September 2013. We didn’t need a kitchen/dining area so we optedfor a room with private bath in the Graca neighborhood, also centally located. We even had a tiny balcony with a beautiful view of the city. Our place was just as beautiful as yours and I’m certain it was decorated by the same person. We had a wonderful breakfast each morning in a charming garden. Lisbon is a magical place.
