Unique view of the river and the city's pristine light (apartment facing South and West). This is like living in a boat. Gorgeous historical neighborhood full of Pombalian, charming architecture. Quiet area with great vibe people. Ideal for a couple!
I tried to make this place a representation of myself. I'm a french nomad dreamer who is in love with the world, its people, its sounds, its beauty. I studied/worked/volunteered in eight countries so far, it's been a fun ride and I hope the place reveals this energy!
You will find it very light and aerial during the day (I love to open up the windows to feel the marine breeze), and will really enjoy the end of day, ocre light that steps in from the West windows. There are basically six windows with a view of either the river or the 25 de Abril bridge, which is quite unique!
Most of the furniture is vintage or self-made to fit the space as I envisioned it, to enhance the oceanic experience that the views offer. Travel memories make all of it more cosy and true; they are most valuable to me.
The walls are a bit "busy" with photography, paintings (or even herbariums from my travels), but that is because I am a very visual person surrounded by artistic vibes.
The space is really great size for a couple, with good living room / dining room space, a proper bedroom, a large bathroom (did I mention thats 'll with views?!), and a great kitchen to cook typical Portuguese bacalhau!
One thing to note: the apartment is on the last (fifth) floor with no elevator, but that is the price to pay for such a gorgeous view in Lisbon!
Échanges avec les voyageurs
I will try my best to be around, but if not, my nice neighbors can help you out! In particular, you can tell the guys from La Boulangerie down the building that you are staying at my place, they will take care of you!
I will be sending you a lot of good tips for restaurants, bars, sights and my city favorites of all kind!
Usual things of course. Please take great care of the things that are special to me (travel memories, family objects, paintings, etc.)

Professionally: I studied management in France and Singapore, worked five years at a private equity firm (in NYC and Hong Kong), volunteered in equestrian / wine related activities in Argentina, worked at a microcredit company operating in Africa, and moved to Lisbon to work in real estate and start a graphic swimwear brand called VAGUEDIVAGUE.
I love ecclectism, visual creativity, vibrant and peaceful cities, galoping on race horses on infinite Argentine beaches, sliding on water or the air, under or above it, the Sun and around, dogs, drawing on tshirts, winter fires in the forest, imaginative photography, smiles, electro and folk and indie and alternative notes in colourful festivals, life on the road, orgasmic food, pigments.
L.O.V.E to dance (I actually make holes in my socks doing so), body paint, dance again, listen to nothing or the ocean. Enjoy a surfing day or hit the road to the Coast on a vintage bike. There, camp and galop on the beach with a wild horse.
A good meal with good old and newly recruited Friends and meeting random people on the other side of this little yet immense world who live in such a different referential, or one that is surprisingly so similar, despite the amount of magma between our homes. I love trees. REALLY (both wild and in my apartment). I make herbariums with travel flowers.
Love to look at the stars and realize how absurd all of this is. Most of all, I love to be in love (can be painful, but the burn is worth it).
Oh and well, I guess you've guessed, I like words, and all the funny things we can do with them! Play folk guitar and sing along.
That's it for now! Last but not least: I'm VERY clean and respectful of others' places as much as mine!
