Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Alfama - TagusView

The comfortable, newly furnished and renovated 3-room-apartment is situated in the heart of the old town on the 2nd and 3rd floor of a white typical Alfama-house which was build more than 100 years ago. All our pictures are originally taken at the apartment.

The holiday apartment is one of the only in the old city center which offers an unspoilt view over the river. You will enjoy the special location offside any street. No noise by cars, motorcycles or tram will disturb your dreams.

Every building in this area is a listed building under monument protection. You reach the flat by several narrow alleys, passing some fishmonger stores in small houses, soccer playing children and old people on stone benches. A lot of buildings are already renovated, other are still in this phase, but this does not affect Alfama in its uniqueness. Restaurants, shops, pharmacy, cleaning and video stores are nearby and the city centre of Lisbon is at walking distance (10 minutes) away.

Further information: The apartment is allocated over 2 levels with open inner stairs. The bedroom is situated in the upper part and has a completely glassed oriel which offers a stunning view over river Tagus. Here you can enjoy your wine in the evening sometimes even listening some fado-music in the background. And here you can let your gaze wander over the nearby church of St. Miguel to the Tejo and the 17.2 km long bridge “Vasco da Gama” and the nature protection area on the other side of the river.

The holiday apartment is one of the only in the old city center which offers an unspoilt view over the river. You will enjoy the special location offside any street. No noise by cars, motorcycles or tram will disturb your dreams.

For 'star watchers' we have a telescope available. The keys as well as answers to possible questions ou get at the Reataurant Sto. António, just 5 Minutes away.

Fantastic apartment in the centre of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a great stay in this beautiful apartment, right in the centre of the old town in Lisbon.

It's exactly as described on the advert, clean and well maintained, with all facilities, a good amount of space and a fantastic view over the river from the upper room!

The central location is perfect for exploring the whole of the city.

Overall a great experience and would have no hesitation in returning!

Frühstück mit Ausblick!

  • 5 of 5

Für den ersten Besuch in Lissabon haben wir mit dieser Wohnung ein echtes Prachtstück erwischt. Die Ausstattung ist top, voll funtionsfähig und sehr sauber. Die Lage mitten in der Alfalma ist für Erkundungstouren im historischen Viertel, aber auch für ganz Lissabon bestens geeignet. Bus-/Bahnhaltestellen bringen einen überall hin. Anmerkung: die Alfalma besteht zu 100 % aus Treppen, gutes Schuhwerk mitbringen :D Direkt vor Ort wird man vom Hausverwalter empfangen, er spricht sehr gutes Englisch und ist per Mail oder Handy während des Aufenthaltes zu erreichen und kann gute Tipps geben (zum Thema Supermarkt, Sehenswürdigkeiten etc.).

Für uns war es ein gelungener Urlaub, unser kleines Highlight: eine Fahrt zur Cabo da Roca (Per Zug nach Sintra od. Cascais und von dort mit dem Bus 403 bis Haltestelle Cabo da Roca, für die Tour sollte man einen ganzen Tag einplanen).

Ich empfehle die Wohnung mit gutem Gewissen weiter.

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für Ihre nette Bewertung, und natürlich auch für den Tip um zu Cabo da Roca zu kommen. Wir kannten das nur mit dem Auto, nicht mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln. Ihre Familie Hempel

Ein wunderbarer Platz in der Alfama

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist ideal für ein paar Tage in der Altstadt, die Ausstattung ist komplett, wir haben wunderbar geschlafen und die prächtige Aussicht genossen. Durch die Heizgeräte war es auch im Februar sehr behaglich.

Zwei Kleinigkeiten, die mich etwas genervt haben: Der PC, den man freundlicherweise benutzen darf, ist eine vollkommen lahme Ente und die Hauseingangstür ist erstens so schmal, dass man nur unter Verrenkungen durch kommt und lässt sich zweitens nur mit Brachialgewalt und lautem Krach schließen.

Eine traumhafte Wohnung in einer wunderbaren Stadt

  • 5 of 5

Die schönen Fotos, die die Besitzer ins Internet gestellt haben, werden von der Wirklichkeit noch übertroffen.

Diese Wohnung ist ein Kleinod:

Der unübertroffene Ausblick und die Ausstattung sind einmalig, der Kontakt mit den Vermietern gestaltete sich unkompliziert und sehr schnell.

Dona Helena kümmert sich umgehend um die Lösung eventueller Probleme

vor Ort.

Sehr viele Sehenswürdigkeiten, z.B. die Burg, die Kathedrale, Praca do Comercio oder Rossio kann man gut zu Fuß erreichen.

Der Bahnhof Santa Apolonia - max. 10 Gehminuten entfernt - war für uns der Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge mit Metro+Zug bis nach Cascais am Meer

oder Sintra.

Gern sind wir im Supermarkt Pingo Doce im Bahnhof einkaufen gegangen.

Wir haben schon einen neuen Aufenthalt 2015 gebucht - das sagt doch alles!

Ruhige Idylle im Altstadtkern

  • 5 of 5

Während rundherum das Leben tobt, die Fassaden bröckeln und abends Fado erklingt, strahlt dieses toll gelegene Appartment Ruhe, Stil und Liebe aus. Es ist schöner als auf den Fotos. Wir waren zu zweit eine Woche lang da, aber es wäre auch locker Platz für drei gewesen. Für uns war es das erste Mal in Lissabon, so dass wir von der Vielfalt der Umgebung ganz überwältigt waren. Nicht geeignet ist das Appartment eigentlich nur für Leute mit richtig großen und schweren Überseekoffern, weil der Treppenaufgang recht schmal und steil ist, so dass wir uns ernsthaft gefragt haben, wie es die geschmackvollen Möbel alle in die Wohnung geschafft haben.

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für Ihre freundliche Bewertung. Das mit den Möbeln war in der Tat nicht immer ganz einfach. Dort ist manche erzählenswerte Geschichte dabei, die man bei einem Glas Wein teilen kann. Ihre Familie Hempel

Lisbon is often described as the city of superlatives. On the famous viewpoints, the Miradouros, you experience incredible moments. You are always confronted with the extremes of old and new. Palaces decorated with the famous azlejos (blue tiles), iron elevators in the inner city, very interesting old graveyards are just as worth seeing as the modern scene in discos and bars at the docks and the large shopping malls. Cultural events of high quality will enthuse you as well as the small bakeries with the typical Portuguese pastries. The distance to the beaches and to the sport facilities are about 30 minutes by car. If you decide to rent a car you can leave it at the car park of Santa Apolonia Station - a few minutes of walking distance - at a price of about € 8 per day. Because of the very central location of our flat we recommend to use the favourable public transports.
