Yes, you can. The winning feature of this four-bedroom Baixa apartment is its enormous roof terrace and panoramic city views, castle included.

Relax in the Scandi-chic interiors of this two-bedroom apartment with oodles of natural light.

This picture-perfect (see above) three-bed home is as chic as it is comfy. We're fans of the tasteful decor on display, with contemporary pieces and vibrant colours interspersed with the apartment's original features. No, we haven't seen many mint green bathrooms before - but hey, it works.

This compact one-bedroom in Graça screams cosy charm (if such a thing were possible). It even has its own little courtyard-like terrace, perfectly designed for a candlelit dinner in. Of course, there are several local eateries to explore in the area, and São Jorge Castle is just a short walk away.

Plant yourself in Lisbon's city centre in this tidy one-bedroom apartment. Design-wise, we're not overly excited. But the canine portraits are a fun touch and it's incredibly good value for this location. It's also a snug fit so don't attempt to squeeze in more than two people.
Extra points for the river views.
From £55 per person per night, sleeps 2
This home gives off stylish beach shack vibes as soon as you enter. It may not be the biggest or the brightest apartment on this list, but it's the kind of space where you'll instantly feel some much-needed zen.
