These renovated apartments for sale in Lisbon are also ideal for those who either want a pied-à-terre in the capital for sunny, cultural breaks or want a hands-off rental investment with a guaranteed yield of up to 5%. Nestled in the residential neighbourhood of Santa Catarina, these apartments are close shops, restaurants, schools and the leafy Jardim da Estrela. From this convenient location, Príncipe Real and Chiado are both within walking distance and the main highway is very accessible too for those who commute by car.

The property

Situated within a traditional Portuguese building with a tiled facade, this development comprises 10 apartments with one or two bedrooms. Ranging from 44 to 90 sqm, all apartments boast bright open-plan living and dining areas with large windows facing the main street where the iconic tram 28 passes through. Many apartments have Juliet balconies and one of the ground floor apartments has a private terrace for making the most out of Lisbon’s 300 days of sunshine. 

The apartments have wood flooring and use a warm palette of colours to create an intimate, homely atmosphere. High-end finishes are featured throughout and the properties come with equipped kitchens and bathrooms and air conditioning. Future owners can also choose the colours and materials used from a selection of styles and can upgrade to premium hardwood flooring and stone basins.

Investment potential

What makes these properties so exciting is that they all enable Golden Visa investors to access the acclaimed Portuguese Golden Visa programme at the lower €350,000 rate. Opportunities like this, are very hard to come by and with the Golden Visa programme changing at the end of the year in Lisbon, investors have a narrowing window of opportunity to take advantage of this.

Thanks to their great location and ideal sizes, these Lisbon apartments for sale are perfect pieds-à-terre or rental investments. Future owners have the option to either enjoy the property themselves or if they do not wish to use it, they may rent it out using the provided service and benefit from guaranteed rental yields of 3% or 5% depending on the size of the apartment.


Perched atop one of Lisbon's famous seven hills, this sunny residential neighbourhood is home to the Miradouro de Santa Catarina which is one of the best viewpoints in Lisbon and offers stunning views over the Tagus river and the 25 de Abril bridge.

Comprised of narrow streets lined with pastel-coloured buildings, Santa Catarina is very charming and has a real village-like atmosphere. The neighbourhood boasts an ever-growing array of restaurants and one of the most well-known eateries here is the quirky Pharmacia. Plus, the action of the city centre is never far away. From here, chic Chiado and Príncipe Real are just 10 minutes' walk away or you can hop on the iconic 28 tram which will take you into the heart of the capital.
