This is a renovated apartment, keeping some of the original house characteristics and to which was added a refined decoration and charm. It has two bedrooms, a comfortable living room where you can watch TV or have a meal, a nice and quirky kitchen where you will find all the utensils and a small bathroom.

Come and enjoy this beautiful apartment. We will do everything to make your stay magical and unforgettable, providing tourist information, maps and practical advice to visit our city!

Nice property: everything as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Property was in a great location, had all the amenities that we needed. Plenty of restaurants in the area and not far from all forms of transportation. We explored the surrounding area mostly on foot and really enjoyed Lisbon and what it has to offer.

Nuno was a gracious host and went out of his way to make sure we had all the information we needed to explore Lisbon and the surrounding area. Communication via email and text was prompt.

The apartment layout was good for 2 people and the master bedroom was quiet and spacious. Others noted that the bathroom is small which is true but it was OK for us.

We do not hesitate to recommend this property.

Really good stay. Cosy Appartement, everything you need, very good location

  • 4 of 5

Nuno was really helpful. Gave us good informations and was very available. We loves the location of the appartement, visit Lisbonne by foot and metro/tram from there. Restaurants/supermarket at walking distance. Everything you need in the appartement, very clean and confortable. The only négative point is the neighboor who is really sensitive to the noise...we are a family with a 3 years old boy and a baby of 4 months and he was constantly nocking on the floor at the minute that we get in the appartment.

Without that, overall really good stay!

Thanks again

We were first time visitors in Lisbon and explore the city was the number one priority. The location of the apartment helped us a lot. We love to walk and still capably doing this, so this is what we've done in Lisbon. From the location of the apartment it was really easy to accomplish. We use to live in Europe capitals, so we know about apartment sizes especially in historical center, so we did not expect huge spaces. We returned to the place for slipping and relaxing time only anyway. The appartment was clean, with two separate bedrooms without windows, but we did not mind. The kitchen had all we needed for quick breakfast that our sun delivered from Pastelaria Alfama Doce 30 meters down the street every morning. Hot shower and clean bad this all we were looking for after fantastic dinners in local restaurants. Nuno was very informative, met us at Fado Museum and accompanied to the apartment with detailed introduction of the neighborhood on the way. Maps and flyers were waiting for us in the appartment table. Thank you Nuno, very pleased.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a perfect location! Walking and exploring fantastic views, restaurants, historical sites, friendly neighbours and enjoying the lovely music of Fado by our window in the evenings! It was clean and cozy, it offered everything we needed to be comfortable. Our host Nuno was gracious and accomodating. He picked us up from the airport and delivered us back for our return flight home. He took the time to explain points of interest, safety, transit and kept in touch throughout the week to ensure our comfort and needs. We would definitely return to this lovely apartment. Thank-you Nuno for all your care and attention.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My mum & I spent 10 nights in Nuno's apartment in Nov/Dec 2015. He kindly picked us up from the airport upon our arrival and, on the day of my mum's return home (I stayed on a little longer), very generously picked her up at 5.00am!!! Nuno showed us around the apartment and recommended some local restaurants, as well as a supermarket and a laundrymat. He also explained how to get to the major tourist attractions in and out of town.

The apartment is ideally located on a quiet alley (no cars) near the Fado museum in Alfama, an 8 min walk from Santa Apolonia train and metro station and an even shorter walk to tram 28. It is newly renovated, well appointed and very comfortable.

We will certainly recommend it to our family and friends, especially given Nuno's friendliness and generosity.

Car: not necessary

You are just 5 minutes away from all that is important in the most historic part of Lisbon, on the hill of the São Jorge Castle, the birthplace of the beautiful city of Lisbon. Less than 5 minutes walk from the city center, a few meters from "Belvedere Portas do Sol ', the' Castle of St. George ', the' Pantheon ', the' Fado Museum ', the' Military Museum ', the' Flea Market ", all kinds of public transport, shops, cafes, typical restaurants, fado houses, bars, art galleries, craft shops ...

If you want to do a different program and 'escape' Lisbon do not forget that you have the magnificent beaches of Costa da Caparica, crossing the bridge on April 25 to the other side of the Tagus River, or the beaches of the picturesque village of Cascais or the indomitable Guincho beach, a favorite with surfers and any lover of water sports. Everything about 30 minutes by private car or even making use of public transport. Do not forget also the possibility to visit the magnificent town of Sintra, classified as World Heritage by UNESCO, all her magic and full of splendor - a romantic realm where majestic palaces, a castle of fairy tales, royal properties and fascinating mansions emerge in the middle hills and lush forests.

Alfama is a historic district que Maintains much of the character and neighborhood life it has had for centuries. Stroll around the narrow streets and alleys and find out for yourself. The house is right in the heart of it. Near lies St. Stephen's Church, with its beautiful viewpoint overlooking the river and the old city rooftops.

The streets around the house are dotted with small groceries where you can buy much of the food you need- cafes, small restaurants and, of course, some of the most famous Fado houses in town. The Fado Museum is Also nearby, as is the National Pantheon and Lisbon's flea market (Tuesdays and Saturdays).

This cozy apartment is 7 minutes walk from Lisbon's main railway station (Santa Apolonia) Which Also Has a subway station que connects to the airport Within less than 40 min. Coming from the airport by taxi shouldnt take no more than 15 min.

There are two secure car parks (one open air and one covered auto silo) Within a short walk from the house.

The house location makes it a perfect base for exploring Lisbon city center: 5 minutes walk from the famous 28 tram line; 10 minutes walk from downtown (Low); 15 minutes walk from the Castle; and 5 minutes walk from the subway station connecting to other city highlights
