Looking for a place to welcome our friends and guests in Lisbon, we stumbled across an enchanting 18th century building, in one of the most romantic Lisbon squares, located in the old cultural quarter of the city. Santa Clara 1728 is surrounded by monuments, beautiful palaces and a park with stunning views of the river.

Charmed by the beauty of the place we soon discovered that we had found our new family home...

The renovation carried out under the guidance of our good friend Manuel Aires Mateus, not only respected the original heritage, but it also added serenity and comfort through the purity which defines his architecture. The outcome was a peaceful home where guests are welcomed as long time friends.


The building's sense of intimacy is accomplished through a sensitive interplay of interior and exterior features.
The generous windows frame the unique brilliance of the Lisbon light which spills over the city
and can be seen reflected in the river below.

There is also a secluded garden to provide moments of quiet relaxation or reading; friends are invited to share a communal dinning table where everything happens around meal times….. just like at home. As a Family House, Santa Clara 1728 is alive with its daily routines, it has a pace, it changes with the seasons of the year…, it invites its guests to embark on an exciting journey, to share its pulse, beauty and charm...
The house is furnished and detailed with a delicate touch, thoughtfully embracing our guests' comfort.

Santa Clara 1728 offers 6 suites, consisting of two different types:

Suite Santa Clara has approximately 70 square meters and comprises of a very large room with river views, a wide sitting room and a bathroom overlooking the garden. This suite accommodates up to 2 adults and 2 children (in adjoining sitting room).

Suite Tejo has approximately 50 square meters and comprises of a very large room with river views, a sitting area and a bathroom. This suite accommodates 2 adults.
