Tejo I + II - sunny, stunning river view, fantastic location in historic center


This self-catering 6-bedroom apartment, part of old Alfama, is a must if you enjoy views and traditional neighborhoods. In typical Alfama, where Fado was born, with extensive views over the river, cruise ships, and the misty south bank of the Tagus, this is the apartment for you! Six colorful bedrooms and 4 renovated bathrooms and a toilet, a living room with a honey-colored wooden floor and a lovely, private balcony is a fantastic environment for a large group of people. Its tastefully decorated interiors are constantly enhanced by the ever-changing sunlight reflected on the river, which can best be enjoyed at sunset, on the apartment’s balcony, with a glass of wine in your hand. 4th floor without lift.


This apartment is part of a renovated 18th-century building in the historic center of quintessential Alfama. High ceilings (3.30 m) and tall windows are some of the apartment’s features. Located on the 4th floor (no lift), it faces the awe-inspiring river front and the boats passing by. On Sundays, you can often witness sail boat races from the lovely French balcony, our favorite part of the house. The living room is spacious and tasteful. Classy yet informal, it has pure white walls, white painted chairs and wooden doors and, for a touch of extra elegance, just a few splashes of color. This room is next door to the charming dining room. Both rooms overlook the Tagus, as does one of the bedrooms. The other 4 bedrooms offer views over the apartment’s back and side street - overlooking the impressive National Pantheon and a cascade of little houses and striking buildings - and there is one windowless bedroom. They are all comfortable, cozy and brightly decorated. The 4 bathrooms and toilet have been renovated and the kitchen is fully equipped.


This typical quarter, close to monuments such as São Vicente de Fora convent or the Panteão Nacional, is home to souvenir shops, good value for money restaurants, the 'Feira da Ladra' (the flea market on Tuesdays and Saturdays), the Fado Museum and also some of Lisbon’s best Fado venues.

Enjoying a traditional dinner to the sound of Portuguese guitars and the dramatic voices of Fado singers, will make you enter a state of inexplicable melancholy which the Portuguese call 'saudade'.

This apartment is exceptionally well situated to explore the maze of winding alleyways, cobbled stone streets, old fountains and beautiful aristocratic façades. On foot, obviously. On your way, you’ll also come across grocers, shoemakers and other artisans who have been selling their products for over 40 years! This is real, genuine Lisbon, the one most visitors fall in love at first sight.

The apartment is within walking distance from some of Lisbon’s highlights: 5 min from the Fado Museum, the National Pantheon (where the Portuguese royal family and prestigious Portuguese are buried) and the convent of São Vicente de Fora; São Jorge Castle and the Sé Cathedral are about 10 min away; Praça do Comércio and downtown Rossio square no more than 20 min; aristocratic Chiado and alternative Bairro Alto quarters - about 25 min. Of course, you’ll also have to explore Belém - the museum quarter. So please take a bus or a tram and spend some time there. There’s loads to see in Belém!

Nearby, less than a 5 min walk away, runs the ultra-famous 28 tram line which passes through some of the city’s best historical areas, as well as Santa Apolónia metro and train station, which links Lisbon to all the major cities. The metro network reaches a good part of Lisbon. Metro and buses can also take you to Cais do Sodré train station, which serves the beautiful Cascais and Estoril summer resorts, or to Rossio train station, from where you can reach Lord Byron’s beloved town of Sintra.

Amazing view in cosy neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with a production crew for a shoot in Lisbon and we had a blast. The apartment is cosy, rooms and beds are good and there are 2 kitchens. The living room is a bit small but we annexed one bedroom and that was perfect.

Be ready to excercise your leg muscles by taking the stairs up and down to the 4th floor. But you do get used to it.

The bedrooms were clean and quiet and the crew friendly and helpful.

Thank you Fatima and Carlos!

Tejo I & II - awesome flat, awesome company!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 adults (4 couples) that rented the Tejo I & II apartments. AWESOME! I've rented a lot of places around the world and this is a really quality company. Fatima was our contact and she was GREAT! Check-in was very informative with lots of local advice given (the restaurant suggestions were spot on). Fatima was EXTREMELY helpful, even coming to the flat, when one of our group had a serious ankle injury and needed to go for xrays.

The flat was great. Plenty of room to stretch out and a great view with wonderful breezes off the water. Maybe the only larger apartment in the historic center of Lisbon that has a bathroom for every bedroom for this size of a group. It's in a great location, with lots of quaint streets, restaurants, and Fado clubs nearby. Very safe. I walked down the street alone as a female one night at 3:30 in the morning on a weekend (looking for our driver to take us to the airport)and had no fears. We walked here (dragging our wheeled luggage) from the Santa Appolonia train/metro station on arrival and it took maybe 5 minutes for our large group. This station was very convenient.

Yes, it's a long climb up the stairs to come home, but that's probably why I ate SO WELL on this trip and didn't gain any weight.

Beautiful views, plenty of space, and friendly, helpful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this apartment with a group of 11, 5 adults and 6 kids. Everyone loved it! It was in a great location: near the Santa Apolonia station, near many delicious restaurants, and close to the water with beautiful views. We would recommend this apartment to everyone. Even our youngest (4 year old) could do the four floor climb with energy after a long day - because he knew he was "home" to this wonderful apartment. Thanks so much to our hosts for helping us to have an amazing first visit to Lisbon. We'll be back!
