Portugal’s capital city, Lisbon is a heady mix of scenic hills and idyllic coastline. A popular European mini-break destination, the city also attracts large numbers of visitors who come to stay on a longer term basis, be it for work, study or leisure, many of whom choose to rent a short-term apartment while they’re here.
There are several companies across Portugal – and in Lisbon itself – that will help you find monthly or even weekly rental apartments in and around the city. To help you find the right one for your needs, we’ve done some research and selected three that we’d be happy to recommend.
Having researched all of the options, we’ve picked HousingAnywhere as our number one tip for finding short-term rentals in Lisbon. When we searched for tenancies starting in April, we discovered a total of 85 properties available across various parts of the city, with prices starting at €495 per month for a studio apartment. The website also features comprehensive neighbourhood guides, new listing alerts, a customer support team, and an instant messaging service for landlords & renters. A generous cancellation policy allows for full refunds if you’re not happy with the property and alert the platform within 48 hours of the start of your rental period. Service fees include a one-off charge equal to around 25% of a month’s rent.

All of their apartments are allocated to the company, ensuring that during your stay you’ll find like-minded people enjoying the delights of Lisbon for a limited period.
