“Legend has it that Eça de Queiroz, a famous 19th-century novelist lived here for a while and used the house as an inspiration for one of his books. With the library on the top floor, the paintings and objets d’art, it still feels like a private house. The 26 bedrooms are sunny and tranquil. The leafy courtyard garden, a treat in Lisbon, is the perfect place for breakfast.”
