Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Lisbon District - TagusView

The comfortable, newly furnished and renovated 3-room-apartment is situated in the heart of the old town on the 2nd and 3rd floor of a white typical Alfama-house which was build more than 100 years ago. All our pictures are originally taken at the apartment.

The holiday apartment is one of the only in the old city center which offers an unspoilt view over the river. You will enjoy the special location offside any street. No noise by cars, motorcycles or tram will disturb your dreams.

Every building in this area is a listed building under monument protection. You reach the flat by several narrow alleys, passing some fishmonger stores in small houses, soccer playing children and old people on stone benches. A lot of buildings are already renovated, other are still in this phase, but this does not affect Alfama in its uniqueness. Restaurants, shops, pharmacy, cleaning and video stores are nearby and the city centre of Lisbon is at walking distance (10 minutes) away.

Further information: The apartment is allocated over 2 levels with open inner stairs. The bedroom is situated in the upper part and has a completely glassed oriel which offers a stunning view over river Tagus. Here you can enjoy your wine in the evening sometimes even listening some fado-music in the background. And here you can let your gaze wander over the nearby church of St. Miguel to the Tejo and the 17.2 km long bridge “Vasco da Gama” and the nature protection area on the other side of the river.

The holiday apartment is one of the only in the old city center which offers an unspoilt view over the river. You will enjoy the special location offside any street. No noise by cars, motorcycles or tram will disturb your dreams. Please be aware that during the first 2 weeks of June local festivals will take place in the area. During these days there will be many people and noise in Alfama, also at night.

For 'star watchers' we have a telescope available.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a local place to stay from where we could walk and poke around. The place was wonderful, and everything just right and as promised.

Not for the faint of stairs

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful property with an amazing view but challenging to access for anyone not used to climbing steep stairs every day (but then again anyone like that would struggle all throughout Alfama). Also be aware that everything in the flat is German, not a problem as my partner and I are both fluent but was a bit challenging for the American couple with us.

Other wise it was perfectly set up for us with binoculars for watching over the amazing view, spices and oils in the kitchen and even board games!

Fantastic apartment in the centre of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a great stay in this beautiful apartment, right in the centre of the old town in Lisbon.

It's exactly as described on the advert, clean and well maintained, with all facilities, a good amount of space and a fantastic view over the river from the upper room!

The central location is perfect for exploring the whole of the city.

Overall a great experience and would have no hesitation in returning!

Bestens eingerichtet, perfekt gelegen, traumhafte Aussicht aus dem Dachfenster.

  • 5 of 5

Wir habe. Zu dritt eine Woche in dieser kleinen und sehr gemütlichen Ferienwohnung verbracht. Die beiden Schlafzimmer waren dafür perfekt. Der Empfang war herzlich, alles klappte einwandfrei. In der Wohnung gibt es einen vom Vermieter angelegten Order mit sehr hilfreichen Empfehlungen zur Stadt und zur Umgebung. Die Lage hat uns sehr zugesagt. Um die Ecke gibit es einen Bäcker und einen Tanteemmaladen. Abends liegen die Fadorestaurants auch in den umliegenden Gassen. Nachts war es absolut ruhig und wir haben in den guten Betten wunderbar geschlafen. Insgesamt ein Glückstreffer und sehr zu empfehlen!

Eine traumhaufte Wohnung in einer wunderschönen Stadt

  • 5 of 5

Gerade zurückgekehrt aus Lissabon und leider schon wieder im Alltag eingetaucht, möchten wir es doch nicht versäumen eine hohes Loblied auf die traumhafte Wohnung von Herrn und Frau Hempel in der Alfama zu singen. Den wunderschönen Blick beim Frühstück und vor dem Schlafengehen aus dem Fenster im Dachgeschoss auf den Tejo werden wir so schnell nicht vergessen. Die Wohnung ist wunderschön und hervorragend ausgestattet. Sie liegt zentral in der Alfama und trotzdem wird man nachts nicht von einer unangenehmen Geräuschkulisse gestört. Die Betreuung vor Ort und auch schon zu Hause von Herrn Hempel ist sehr nett und fürsorglich. Wir können die Wohnung mit bestem Gewissen weiterempfehen und würden bei einem weiteren Besuch in Lissabon jederzeit versuchen, uns hier wieder einzumieten. Ein großes Lob und vielen Dank an Familie Hempel.

Lisbon is often described as the city of superlatives. On the famous viewpoints, the Miradouros, you experience incredible moments. You are always confronted with the extremes of old and new. Palaces decorated with the famous azlejos (blue tiles), iron elevators in the inner city, very interesting old graveyards are just as worth seeing as the modern scene in discos and bars at the docks and the large shopping malls. Cultural events of high quality will enthuse you as well as the small bakeries with the typical Portuguese pastries. The distance to the beaches and to the sport facilities are about 30 minutes by car. If you decide to rent a car you can leave it at the car park of Santa Apolonia Station - a few minutes of walking distance - at a price of about € 8 per day. Because of the very central location of our flat we recommend to use the favourable public transports.
