This cosy and romantic flat is located in the very heart of Alfama (in its more residential area), the most typical neighbourhood of Lisbon, famous for its intricacy of narrow streets, typical restaurants and pubs, where Fado is present every night and has its national museum located (a merely three minutes walking).
The apartment, in the first floor, has one room and one living room, allowing four people to sleep and has good sunlight.
It is modernly and nicely decorated, fully equipped with Wireless Internet and Cable IPTV, were you have everything to cook, Microwave, hair dryer, iron, DVD, etc., and most important of all, displays a familiar touch that will assure you to spend memorable romantic holidays in this very special city.
Very near there's some important monuments, such as Lisbon’s Cathedral, the National Pantheon, St. Jorge’s Castle and the famous market - Feira da Ladra – which is held every Tuesday and Saturday and where you can find antiques, old and second hand books, vinyl records, all kind of paraphernalia; something you simply can´t miss!
WELCOME TRANSFER FROM LISBON'S INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT CAN BE PROVIDED
Thank you Joao for a lovely stay. The little apartment was just right for a couple for five days and such good value. It was simple and fresh and had everything that we needed. Although we had gorgeous weather, the evenings were cold, and it was very generous, given the low rental price, to leave us two heater blowers so that we were cosy. Other plus points were the fact that there was a washing machine and an outside line suspended from the wall. Also, there was a bath with shower and the water was comfortably hot.
We loved Lisbon but it is a big and complicated city, so more specific information about how to get about, the best local restaurants etc. would have been helpful. We run a gite ourselves and find that people who stay with us leave loads of useful tips written in our guest book. Thank you Joao, we have discussed having such a book in your apartment and you have said that your wife will provide one.
Just one last thing....the bed was comfortable but we think that the pillows could be better!!
Even with these comments, which are meant to be constructive, we are very happy to rate your place...and Lisbon....at 5 stars.
Thank you very much for your sweet little place and for your kindness and generosity.
Felicity and John.
This is a cosy and fell situated apartment fitted out with all you need. It is in agreat location to explore the old quarter of Alfam with allof the sites and the tram ride withing walking distance.
The pick up and delivery to the airport is a great help
Highly recomend this apartment
João picked us up from the airport right on time and dropped us off at the apartment, which was clean, well decorated and in a wonderful part of the city. The bed was super comfortable, with plenty of room for two people. The internet connection had wifi and was quite strong and reliable, which was nice for researching attractions while in Lisbon.
While we didn't use the washer, it was nice to have it in case we needed it. We also appreciated the small space heaters for the mornings, which were a bit chilly in February. João also gave us a ride to the airport, which was very much appreciated.
Our favorite attractions/places:
- Alfama, of course. So many small bars to try the house wine at, which was always excellent
- Sintra (superb day trip)
- Belem and its many museums, as well as the Pasteis de Belem pastry shop
- Corkscrew wine bar in Alfama
- Cruzes Credo Cafe in Alfama (my favorite of the trip, with an amazing craft beer selection)
- Chiado area. Very artsy, lots of shops.
- The indoor market near Belem on Saturday with its large fish/meat/fruit/vegetable stalls and the indoor restaurants
Enjoyed3 nights in Joao's delightful apartment. Should have stayed longer. So much to see an do wandering the streets of the old Lisbon on foot and by tram. Apartment is exactly as described. Beautifully renovated in an old building surrounded by small shops, bars and restaurants in the heart of Alfama We ate in each night and kitchen had everything we needed. Joao has a great eye for detail and nothing has been overlooked. Met at the airport by him and his delightful wife even though we arrived at 7.30am. A welcome bottle of wine awaited us. Bed very comfortable. Plenty of hot water. Washing machine for those smelly clothes at the end of a hard day touring. As a seasoned traveller I would recommend Joao's apartment without hesitation. If you want to be in the hub of old Lisbon but a quite street this is the place for you. So much more personal than a hotel room and so much more inexpensive.
Apartment exactly as advertised, very happy with it. Location close to centre and easy to walk to and from. Also convenient to metro and train stations. Owners helpful and friendly. Great value. Highly recommend.
We had a great time at the appartment in Alfama. what a beautifull area it is, the appartment was really beautifull and had everything you need and more for a perfect stay.
The owners are very nice people who will try there best to let you enjoy your stay. We would go back any time there.
Alfama is the most typical neighbourhood of Lisbon, just 10 minutes walk to the amazing Terreiro do Paço square (in front of Tagus river) and downtown shopping area (Baixa); from there is just a step up to Chiado.
Very near there are some important monuments, such as Lisbon’s Cathedral (Sé), the National Pantheon and St. Jorge’s Castle. very near is the famous market - Feira da Ladra – which is held every Tuesday and Saturday and where you can find antiques, old and second hand books, vinyl records, all kind of paraphernalia; something you simply can´t miss!
