Luxury Flat in the heart of Alfama

Bedrooms 2
Space 742 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Our place is in the centre of Lisbon right in the heart of historic Alfama, close to the Castle of São Jorge and many other popular sights. Alfama is the home of Fado music with buzzy local cafes in enchanting streets.

We've modernised the flat to a very high spec yet kept many of the traditional features intact providing our guests with a local & luxurious experience all in one! You're on a raised ground level so easy to get in & out, especially for families with kids. We welcome you all.

The house has two bedrooms, which accommodate 4 people, yet the living room has a sofa that can be turned into a double bed. Extra guests are charged separately.

The best way to reach the house from the airport is by local Taxies, Cabify or Uber. As mentioned above, Alfama is a labyrinth of streets, which are lovely to explore, but after you left your bags at home. We can also provide you an option to book a private transfer to pick you up from the airport, yet this service is an extra fee and it needs to be booked more than 24hrs prior arrival. Therefore, should you consider this option, please send a private message after your booking is confirmed.

After you settled in your lovely home, most interesting landmarks are within minutes by foot. Should you like to explore the outskirts of Lisbon then metro, trains and buses are within 10 minutes walking distance.

About Vanessa

We are both professionals but first & foremost good friends who own & manage this amazing flat.

We are both originally from Portugal but have lived in many cities throughout Europe including more recently, London.

Travelling is our passion and we recognize how important it is to have a fantastic living experience while visiting a new city; it can make such a big difference to your entire stay.

So let us take care of you while you visit our beautiful city and we are sure you will love your stay with us!

Vanessa purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Vanessa chose Alfama

We wanted to create a property that maintained all of Alfama's historical feel yet provide our guests with a first class, modern living experience internally. We think we've achieved this using some state-of-the-art architectural design, fixtures and fittings. Most of all, you don't have to pay inflated hotel room rates to enjoy tasteful luxury.

What makes this apartment unique

Street level entrance directly into the property hence no climbing of endless stairs; ideal for families with kids

Living room, kitchen, bathroom and main bedroom on the 'raised' ground level which provides additional security.

2nd. bedroom on duplex level

Windows offering sunlight into every room

Recently constructed using very high quality insulation materials. Eco friendly.

Unique stone 'seat' in living room left from original construction.

Outstanding architectural features throughout the flat

Excellent accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Lisbon was fantastic and this VRBO is an oasis! Ana helped us with our arrival, setting us up with a driver because we came in late. The wine and pastries welcome gift were sooo nice. After walking the streets for miles every day it was a great place to come home to. It's comfortable and quiet.

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, bright flat in an incredible location. A bit tight for space in the bedrooms but that was expected. The hostess was kind and helpful. The coffee, wine and treats were appreciated after a long, exhausting trip. Highly recommend this flat.
