About the property

Self-catering apartment ideal for city and cultural visits

Our cosy apartment is ideal for city and cultural visits. A few minutes away from the main historical monuments in Lisbon, as well as of the nightlife. During your stay you can enjoy the romantic surroundings, or relax in our patio.

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have about the cultural agenda or others before arriving, we are happy to help.

We hope to see you soon in Lisbon!

Apartment and Surroundings: Our apartment is located in Alfama only a short distance from the Sao Miguel church. The apartment is equipped with a kitchenette (oven, refrigerator, cooker and washing machine) and has room for up to 4 people, it has a living-room (with sofa bed), a bathroom and one bedroom (double bed). The house was completely renovated in 2007, but preserving its original characteristics and its entrance patio.Nearby you can find little shops, cafés, restaurants and a pharmacy.

What to do: Our guests will receive a map of Alfama with all the important information to make their stay as interesting as possible. Alfama is one of the oldest parts of Lisbon, offering interesting architectural and cultural sites. Fado has its origins here and there are several restaurants serving typical food to the sound of live Fado. June and July are the months of the local festivities, when Alfama is decorated with all colours. In those months, small food and drink stands are set up everywhere, inviting the visitor to try the typical grilled sardines. June 13th is the day of St. Anthony, Lisbon’s patron Saint. On the eve of that day, there are processions and folkloric marches of Lisbon’s oldest quarters, including Alfama, in his honour.

In the first half of December, Christmas concerts are organized in the churches of Sao Miguel in Alfama, “Igreja da Graça” and “Igreja do Menino de Deus” in Encosta do Castelo. But Lisbon has a lot more to offer!!

ground floor appt

  • 4 of 5

We agree with the April report . In fact this is what made us choose our appt but ground floor Compact , darkish for day light but internal lighting good ,very clean ,well decorated, very well equiped kitchen and bathroom ,patio bottom of high buildings but some sky but very welcome to use . In a good area to be with locals ,shops and restaurants . Recommended ones very good We were lucky to be there at festival time .

We were met on time to go to the appt in Alfarda but from airport the taxi fare is 7/8 euros not 15 We got caught in fixing the price at 15 euros ! Even though the airport tourist office said 18-60 Euros for a taxi voucher and advised 15 Euro if we took a taxi ourselves . The return taxi fare was the same . 7/8 euros Lisbon is good for a short break

Owner's Response: Taxi fares in Lisbon depend on the amount of luggage that you transport, the traffic conditions and of course the day/night time. So you can't expect exactly the same rate for the same route everytime.

The best picture of Alfama

  • 5 of 5

It was our second holiday in Lisboa. We had a great time in this apartment. It is very well located, in the heart of Alfama, so you can truly live like a local.

Nearby are shops, coffe shops and a lot of verry goods restaurants. Tram 28 and the subway are at maximum 5 minutes walk.

The apartment is very cozy, very well equipped and very clean. The internet is fine. The photos accurately describe the reality.

We were over for 2 weeks, Isa, the owner, changed the bed linen and towels and she cleaned the apartment, very appreciated by us. Isa is verry helpful and kind. We would highly recommend this apartment.

Wunderbare Ferientage in Lissabon

  • 4 of 5

Die Wohnung ist schön und praktisch eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Im vorliegenden Innenhof konnten wir jeden Tag gemütlich frühstücken. Auch am Abend und in der Nacht ist es dort relativ ruhig, da die Hauptwege der Touristen und die Lokale ein bis 2 Straßen entfernt liegen. Hier sind die Nachbarn noch Lisboas und es gibt viele kleine Geschäfte gleich unterhalb.

Isabell hat uns mit vielen Tipps versorgt und so hatten wir unvergessliche Abende auf der anderen Seite des Tejo und besonders im Fado-Lokal A Baiuca gleich um die Ecke.

Lisbonne for the first time ... not the last !!!

  • 5 of 5

Appartement situé en rez de chaussée avec, comme le montre la photo un petit coin de terrasse très appréciable pour les petits dejeuners et l'apéro le soir .

L'appartement est situé dans le quartier le plus sympa et le plus pittoresque de Lisbonne. Il est très bien situé pour ceux qui aiment marcher, et découvrir à pied ou avec les transports en communI.

Isa a très bien équipé l'appartement et avec goût, les meubles, le linge de maison, tout le nécessaire pour des vacances touristiques y est . Vous ne manquerez de rien car elle est allée jusqu'à prévoir la lessive pour la MAL.

Grand merci à ISA et surtout n'hésitez pas, vous ne serez pas déçu par le lieu et le cadre .

Pure Alfama

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the apartment and spent a fantastic holiday in Lisboa. We were warmly welcomed and we felt immediately at home. Very nice, clean and charmant flat in the heart of Alfama. It was very convenient to all the sights. The metro stations are very close too. Isa was extremely helpful, kind and gives an excellent service. We would highly recommend this apartment.
