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
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.
What a wonderful place to stay! The apartment is gorgeous, well equipped, comfortable and full of character. It's located in the historic Alfama district of Lisbon which is full of life and culture. It's in easy reach of down town Lisbon and walking distance to the main shopping areas and the castle. We stayed here with our two sons (5yrs and 2yrs) and we all loved it. We loved opening the windows and shutters of the apartment to listen to the hustle bustle of every day life going on in the streets below, and at night hearing the Fado music drifting on the air. We were made so welcome by Joao and Paula - they were simply delightful people. It was wonderful wandering around the beautiful streets of Alfama finding tiny shops, friendly locals and coming across street performances of Fado music. We would highly recommend this apartment for anyone wanting to stay in Lisbon. You will be made so welcome by Jaoa and Paula.
This was in the heart of Alfama. Everything within walking distance . Steep walk to the apartment which is part of the Alfama charm. Very clean and Joao was very welcoming picked us up from the airport which was great. Would highly recommend if you want to stay in historical area.
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!
