To travel by substituting useless services, illusory conveniences. This is the promise of The Visionaire Apartments. But why does this hybrid space really make a difference? Let’s say that here we find all the advantages of the premium hotel business and the advantages of an Airbnb rental. So an almost supreme freedom.
Let’s take two examples that mLet’s take two examples. Personally, what disturbs me the most in the traditional hotel business is the standardization of common spaces, the often rapidly limited surface area of the room, but above all, the obligatory passage in front of a reception that looks more like a checkpoint.
With an Airbnb rental, there is no one to “take care of the special attentions” and you have to keep the place clean, especially if the rental exceeds several days. The Visionary Apartments bring together the best of both worlds: everything the house represents and a concierge service that gives us the attention we deserve.
By freeing myself from the constraints of a traditional hotel, I was able to feel “at home” from the very first moments. Even if my first reflex was to put down my suitcases and to get lost around the Praça da Figueira which is just next to the hotel, I still felt at home.
When I came back with my fresh food, I found a certain balance, as if I was living in this place. To be honest, since the beginning of the Roadness adventure, I rarely had the opportunity to cook for myself and since the apartment has a fully equiped kitchen, I took the time to cook for myself. It sounds simple and obvious, but it’s exactly on this kind of details that the whole concept of The Visionaire Apartments is based. A certain idea of belonging in order to conquer a new form of freedom.
Therefore, very quickly, we find our bearings and time no longer matters. We don’t go home to slump down in front of the television, but on the contrary to enjoy this place again. The minimalist decor leaves room for your inspirations. It’s exactly what you need to feel at home for a few days. No extravagance and objects from the 4 corners of the world.
The Visionaire apartments are a contemporary interpretation of a 16th century merchant house, decorated with woodwork, tapestries, printed textiles, tiles and pottery, blending the Portuguese style with African, Asian and Oriental influences. Details, particularities which bring to the travelers a dimension necessarily based on precious moments.
In this place it is possible to take some time for yourself for a yoga lesson, to invite friends to dinner with a breathtaking view of the Costello de S. Jorge or even to read in the living room or in the bedroom.
We live in an era where curiosity has become a cardinal value. The Visionary is part of this approach. More than just a place to stay, it is an excellent experience to live in the Portuguese capital. This place is for those who love to travel alone or in groups, for frequent travelers, walkers, nomadic businessmen?
