First of all, i'm sorry to write you in english but i don't speak portugese very well .

I just read your e-mail regarding my apartment located in Rua da Oliveira ao Carmo, 35, Chiado, Santa Maria Maior, 1200-309 Lisboa.

It has 3 rooms : 2 bedroom , 1 living room, 1 bathroom, 1 kitchen(70 m²).

I bought this apartment for my daughter during her studies in Portugal, but now she's back home permanently, so I'm renting the place for unlimited time. Before we go any further, I would like to know a little something about you, like how many persons you intend to live in the apartment, and for how long. The flat is exactly like in the pictures, furnished and renovated. The utilities (water, electricity, wireless broadband Internet, digital TV, etc.) are included in the price of rent ,you will have one parking spot , the rent is 600 EURmonth . The guarantee deposit is EUR 600,00, and you get it back, when you decide to leave the apartment (you will have to give me at least 30 days notice). As for me, you can rest assured that I will never ask you to leave the apartment. My daughter is building her life here, and i am too old to move to Portugal, so we won't disturb you.

You can use my furniture, or you can also use your own if you prefer. If you decide to use yours, you will have access to a very large and well-ventilated cellar, where you can store my furniture.

Now, a little bit about myself so we can get to know each other better. My name is Carmela Rosa Mariani and I'm 56 years old ,Company Director of Mediolanum Farmaceutici S.p.a. from Milano/Italy, planning to retire in the next 2 years. I have a lovely husband, Franco and a 26-year-old daughter, Francesca. I am very proud to say that soon I'm going to be a grandmother). Another member of our family is a 8 year old Labrador which we all love, so, I have no problem if you will keep pets.

The only inconvenience is that my job doesn't allow me to leave Milano even for one single day. We just hired some new staff and I'm in charge of their training.

But this won't affect you at all. I can make arrangements to rent the apartment from Milan (on my expense of course).

Looking forward to hear from you soon.

All the best from Italy!
