Santa Clara 1728, Lisbon
The place where guests are welcome as longtime friends. In the old cultural area of Lisbon, Santa Clara 1728 is a house with castle-like interiors, at times grand or minimalist but ever enchanting. The views take a cue from the glorious design too, with the river and the Pantheon right outside.
Santa Clara’s 6 suites - all of which are incredibly spacious - accomodate friends, couples or families (up to 2 adults and 2 children per suite).
Pictured here is suite Santa Clara (70sqm), with clean airy lines mixed with natural tones of stone and wood.
The two types of suites, Tejo and Santa Clara remain pretty similar: both have views over the river, a sitting area and a bathroom with a bathtub as well as a shower.
Purity and minimalism define the feeling of the suite. The exterior architecture spills over through the large bay windows while the room offers all the characteristics of a luxury stay (coffee machine, complimentary mini-bar, incredible bedding and bathroom amenities).
No TV in the suite, the view is the star of the show. A candle-light evening in the oversized bathtub is mandatory.
When rehabilitating the building, the project respected the original heritage of the neighborhood. Santa Clara 1728 fits among Lisbon’s cultural and historical city center beautifully.
Feira da Ladra, the popular flea market across the street is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays. 50 meters away, the National Pantheon and the Monastery of Sao Vicente de Fora both have incredible views over the Tajo and the sea of orange tiles from Lisbon’s roofs.
As Lisbon has been built on seven hills, Alfama neighbourhood is filled with viewpoints (miradouro) most of them a walking distance from Santa Clara. The one from São Jorge Castle is panoramic and breathtaking !
Santa Clara 1728 is perfectly located to wander around in the narrow and paved streets of the old town.
A communal dining table is at guests disposal all day long. In the mornings, breakfast is set here: a mouth watering assortment of cheeses, jams, homemade bread, fruits, freshly sqeezed juices… Chef José offers different dish every morning, made with enthusiasm and care.
Just like in any home, meal time is when everything happen and it’s a perfect time to ask for recommendations on the day ahead.
At the back of the property, a vast courtyard contributes to the relaxing vibe of the place. Chairs, loungers surrounded by plants - a quiet place to unwind after a busy day of visits. A living room area with a coffee machine and sofas is also available.
