An arty boutique retreat with a riad-style garden and pool in the heart of Lisbon’s arty Santa Catarina district - includes breakfast and a bottle of Porto wine

Tucked into a labyrinthine backstreet in the heart of Lisbon’s trendy Santa Catarina neighbourhood, Dear Lisbon – Charming House is a quaint boutique hotel with 20 themed bedrooms and a quiet garden reminiscent of Moroccan riads. Creatively designed with a nod to traditional Portuguese decor like azulejos tiles, this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winner affords city views over the jumbled terracotta rooftops and a petite plunge pool in the garden – everything you need for a fashionable break in one of Europe’s coolest cities.

Fuel up for a day of thigh-burning rambles up Lisbon’s steep hills with a buffet breakfast – alternatively, walk a few minutes to the 28 tram stop and hop aboard to rattle up and down the city’s seven hills (and save the legwork). Keep your camera handy for the city’s interesting mix of modern and historic buildings; recent urban developments and slick restaurants sit cheek by jowl with bohemian townhouses and soaring cathedrals in a perfect blend of old and new.

Sample the city’s excellent cuisine in the Mercado da Riberia (Time Out Market) or stroll a few hundred metres to Bairro Alto to shop for quirky fashions and admire the sunset over the River Tagus from one of the city’s miradouro lookouts.
