Great character flat in the historic heart of Lisbon

5 of 5
We had a fantastic family stay at Susana's and Julien's flat, which was clean, well equipped, located in the historic heart of Lisbon, and offered dramatic views from the master bedroom balcony. Susana and Julien were very helpful and responsive throughout - nothing but positive experiences!

Lovely accommodation in the heart of bustling Alfama

5 of 5
Excellent apartment with all mod cons for our stay. Vitor was lovely and really helpful. He picked us up from the airport which was important as we wouldn't have found the apartment on our own. Walkable distance to central Lisbon and lots of local cafés, restaurants and bars. Highly recommend.
