We recently recovered an old ruin in Trafaria, right by the Tejo river, with the help of Lisbon Architect Inês Brandão. The scenic Belém district lies just across the river, a short beautiful boat ride away. Stunning views and a quiet house with a private garden make this a prime location to enjoy the city of Lisbon, Trafaria's famous sea-food and fish restaurants on the river side, and the amazing coast of Caparica, a long sand beach that stretches over more than 20 km along the Atlantic ocean.

The space
The house is completely new and fully equipped. The garden has a deck right outside the living room, easily accessible through glass doors. One of our main objectives when recovering the house was to maximise the flow between indoor and outdoor areas. There is a barbecue next to the wooden deck, with an outdoor dinning area for everyone to enjoy the amazing weather of Lisbon. You can get delicious meat to grill from the butcher, or fresh fish from the market, right on the main square, a 5 minutes walk from the house.
We hope you will enjoy our garden too, with our tiny little plants and trees that we care for and wish to see grow season after season when returning to our home town for holidays. We have also just installed a large PV Solar system, meaning that your daily energy needs will be met by the sun! The system produces enough energy to allow the Air Conditioning units to keep the house fresh during the hot summer days.
There is also ample space to park a large car in the garden and lots of space right outside the house (free street parking) if you're coming with an extra car or having friends over for a visit.

Where you’ll be

Trafaria, Setúbal, Portugal

Trafaria is an old town that is currently undergoing extensive renovations. Old buildings, some still in ruins, are side by side with renovated beautiful traditional houses. The town main square, with its old church, is just a 2 minutes walk from our door. There you can get a nice espresso coffee, fruits and veggies, meat or fresh fish from the market. The river front, with its amazing restaurants is also 2 min on the other direction, from our doorstep. The town still hosts a big silo for wheat brought by cargos.
When we are home for holidays we never fail to stop for lunch or dinner at "A Taberna" - 2 min walk, down to the river front - and to "Manuel da Gorda" - 1 min walk up the street. Both offer delicious local cuisine at affordable prices.

From our place you can also easily reach the beatiful long sand stretches of Caparica. Very close (5 min drive) you will find the beaches of "Cova do Vapor" and "São João da Caparica", and in 10 minutes you will reach Costa da Caparica. All of them are top Portuguese beaches and are great places for surfing.

I'm a native from Costa da Caparica, the surfers town of choice right next door to Trafaria. After living in Bologna and London for a while, then Barcelona for 7 years - 1 year bartending, last 6 in a lab... go figure - and then San Francisco for a postdoc, I'm now living in Marseille with my family where I hold a long-term position in biomedical and ageing research with the French national scientific research laboratories. I'm always trying to find out something new to do, mostly outdoors. While in Barcelona I became a regular on rock climbing spots and is also where I started windsurfing. After moving to San Francisco I fell for trail running, where you could find me often on the hills of Mt Tam. A good read, a good coffee and good company will do for whenever I'm not running around. Very much into good food, either cooking it myself or exploring the never ending diversity in restaurants around the area. Listening and playing music, movies and laughing together with raising my baby and showing him all the world has to offer are my other hobbies.

During your stay

I live with my family in Marseille, France, but my mother and my brother are still located in Costa da Caparica, a 10 minutes drive away.

I will always be available over the phone, and my family or friends will be able to meet with you in case of an urgent need (lost keys, some issue in the house, etc).

The meet and greet will be done by someone we trust, which makes my mom's life more simple :)
