About the property

antique furniture, lustres, daily roomservice, person on place

The apartment is located on the top floor of a restored house on the upper edge of Alfama in the historic center of Lisbon. The spectacular view and the characteristic atmosphere of neighborhood are fascinating.

You have an view of what is happening in the streets, but also find absolute silence, if you desire. It's located on the third floor of the house and is supported by a traditional diagonal staircase, which in a straight line from the entrance to the house. The bottom two floors of the house are still in the period before the great earthquake of 1755 and was not destroyed by this. The upper two floors were built in the 19th Century. The flat is very centrally located and has all day sunshine (except, when it is cloudy ...)

Further Details: The apartment has a very central location in a historic building in the heart of the old city of Lisbon. It is well developed and is on the tram line No 28. The Monastery of Sao Vicente, the Castle Hill and the streets of Alfama are a few minutes away. Go on city tours of this place of rest and enjoy the panoramic view from every window. Or stay in the apartment and enjoy the special atmosphere and the high, bright rooms.

Further Information: We have a contact person who speaks English and French on site. If you have questions or need help, she is happy to help you. If you have further questions on housing and the environment, you can call us. You can reach us at the telephone number 0041 7942595 06 (see below).

Specials:: Enjoy a freshly squeezed orange juice in the winter!

We may pick all the oranges of the tree of our neighbour, that are within our range. The tree is in the back yard of the house and we have a special instrument to pick them :-)

Do not hesitate to rent this home. It is beautiful and in a wonderful location. It has everything needed to be comfortable. Its walkable to everywhere from the apartment. It always has a breeze running through it when you open windows. I love the view of the water, church and castle. The owner is helpful from beginning to the end. I am so glad we chose this home to stay in. Cheryl

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time. The layout is quirky but it added to the experience. The view was great and the place was very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed and the beds were comfortable. The lady that helped us went above the call of duty. Thanks!

Really enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We found this apartment to be in an excellent location with a great view of the city. It was in easy walking distance to several sites and a block from Tram #28. There was a nearby grocery store and bakery.

The apartment is in an older building, as it's in an older part of Lisbon, but that adds to it's character and charm. The apartment was clean and well maintained. Bring your own soap and shampoo. The stairs provided a workout when carrying a suitcase, but not a concern for us.

Paula was very helpful with providing local information and arranging a 2am taxi to the airport for us.

We would stay here again without hesitation.

LISSABON - gerne wieder!

  • 5 of 5

Vielen Dank an Herrn Berwert für die vorab Infos und Hinweise per Mail, hätten uns aber für die Zeit vor Ort ein paar aktuelle Tipps zu Resto´s etc. gewünscht. Die Container für Restmüll gibt´s leider nicht mehr.

Haben in der Lago Graca ein tolles und preiswertes Lokal entdeckt ("Jardim da Graca", hat leckeren Vinho verde) und die Erfahrung gemacht, daß die Tram 12, im Gegensatz zur 28, selten voll ist. Die Aussichtsplattform auf dem Tore Vasco da Gama auf dem Expo-Gelände ist, entgegen aller Reiseführer, seit 2004 geschlossen, dagegen sollte man das Oceanario auf keinen Fall verpassen.

Empfehlenswert die CARRIS-Card für 24 Stunden a´ € 6,50, gilt für Metro, Tram, Bus und alle Aufzüge - kann man je nach Bedarf wieder aufladen.

Die Tipps vom Vermieter bzgl. des Taxis vom Flughafen zur Wohnung waren sehr hilfreich (man muß allerdings zur Wartereihe der Taxis) . Vielen, vielen Dank auch an Paula, die uns den Weg zu einem Internetcafe beschrieben hat (mußten unsere Bordkarten noch ausdrucken) und uns für die Abreise ein Taxi bestellt hat.

Es war ein toller Städteurlaub in einer wunderschönen Wohnung , Herr Berwert wir werden gern wiederkommen.

Hanne und Helmut

We had a wonderful stay in a really nice place. Great view, and we didn't mind the stairs, the hand-over of keys was very well organized.

Sehr empfehlenswert

  • 4 of 5

Ideale Lage, traumhafte Ausblicke aus fast allen Fenstern, Balkone in 2 Himmelsrichtungen. Gute Wohnungsaufteilung; ideal für 4 Personen, liebevoll eingerichtet mit antiken Möbeln, passenden echten Holzdielen, echtem Tafelsilber und Orangenbaum vor dem Küchenbalkon. In der Küche fehlte eigentlich nichts, (gutes Topfset). Besondere Pluspunkte: KEINE Mikrowelle (man muß also richtig kochen) und KEIN Fernseher. Saubere, gepflegte, antike Wohnung. (Das Haus ist 150 Jahre alt).

Einkaufsmöglichkeiten ab 100 Meter Entfernung von kleinen Läden bis Supermarkt; die nächste kleine Bar 10 Meter von der Haustür (kein Lärm!). Wichtige Sehenswürdigkeiten dieses Stadtteils Alfama wie die Burg, Kirchen oder Aussichtspunkte nur 10 Min, Straßenbahnen 2 Min, Metro 15 Min Fußweg entfernt. Freundliche, dreisprachige "Schlüssel"-Dame.

Nachteile: enge, steile Treppe in den 3. Stock; "Wohnzimmer" etwas klein für 4 Erwachsene.

Owner's Response: Es freut uns, dass es Ihnen so gut bei uns gefallen hat. Zu einem traumhaften Ausblick braucht es immer einen Aufstieg...Alfama ist bekannt für seine Treppen ;o) J.B.

The Travessa das monicas is a quiet street in the midst of a very lively old town quarter. You'll find many cultural attractions here, as well as good shopping. The house is located at the intersection of the three Old Town districts of 'Graça', 'Mouraria' and 'Alfama' in the heart of the historic Lisbon, with its picturesque streets. Many of the old houses have been renovated in recent years, many are still there. Enjoy the unique 'village atmosphere' in the heart of the World City of Lisbon.
