Arriving in the Alfama and having a sight from the apartment exactly the same as it’s reported in the pictures, is really breathless. The property is clean, you can’t expect a very modern one in the Alfama, but it’s well maintained. The team that own the property is very professional, always ready to give you the best answers to your questions, for a still better visit to this beautiful city. We will return there every time we’ll go to Lisbon

                                                                                                      Last year we spent a delightful sunny Christmas in this apartment. This year we moved on to New Year and although the weather was a bit less sunny (though pretty warm), it was also a delight. You couldn't be better placed for the immediate charms of Alfama, restaurants, wine bars, fado, craft and gift shops – and an outstanding convenience store just 30 yards from the front door, open all hours. The walk into town is easy and the nearest metro and a taxi rank are just down the hill. On New Year's Eve we could watch the spectacular fireworks in the city and around the great estuary from the rooftop balcony (just right for two) and there was the added interest of five cruise ships, including the Queen Elizabeth, turning up in full view just down the road over the period. Just one word of warning, the apartment is on the third floor up some steep and narrow stairs. Aged getting on for 79 I was fine, but if your knees are dodgy this is not for you. Otherwise a perfect winter get away. For real romantics of a certain age go to the tapas restaurant down the steps by the apartment and turn left - at the end of the road (Jardim do Tabaco) on the other side. The food is outstanding, music and service charming and there is a photo of Sean Connery and Michelle Pfeiffer there taken during the shooting of 'The Russia House'. Not to be missed, but you should make a reservation.
