This beautiful five-bed townhouse is as traditional as they come. Forming part of a terrace on Rua Dr Alves da Veiga, the frontage is tiled as many Portuguese buildings are. The trad themes run through the inside too, with midcentury touches and some modern flourishes. Each room has a double bed, kitchenette, seating area and Nespresso machine. Some even have a view of the garden, which is long, lovely and flanked by trees. If you do venture out to basque in the garden, be sure to pick up a bottle of wine from reception to sip in the shade.
