Remédios I - sunny, fantastic river view, in charming historic neighborhood

HIGHLIGHTS

If you’re coming to Lisbon, you couldn’t possibly choose a better apartment. Located on a hill in the heart of Alfama, Lisbon’s oldest and most fascinating quarter, this bright apartment is ideal for families or groups. Sunny and spacious, it affords glorious views over the beautiful Tagus estuary. If you’re a romantic or tend towards contemplation, this is the best place to enjoy a view that will remain with you for the rest of your life. Lovely interiors, a sun-drenched living room, scenic views and beautiful surroundings are this apartment’s main features.

It’s also right next door to some national 'jewels', such as the convent of São Vicente de Fora, Sé Cathedral and São Jorge Castle. There are plenty of restaurants and Fado venues in the neighborhood, as well as the lively, picturesque flea market on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Our guests love this apartment because of its river views and 'authentic' Lisbon location.

DESCRIPTION

Once you open the door to the apartment you’ll be struck by the scenic, incredibly blue water of the river Tagus. Trust us, it’s a view that will remain with you for the rest of your life! So, to make the most of this scenery, take a seat, pick up a glass of wine in one hand, maybe a book in the other, and just dream away!

Impeccably renovated, this homely apartment offers 3 bedrooms (1 with a double bed, the other 2 can have a double bed or 2 singles) and 3 bathrooms (with showers, one is en suite). The 2 bedrooms with river view include traditional balconies, with decorated iron railings, tall windows and unusually high ceilings, as does the spacious and comfortable living-room. The other side looks onto a blind alley with quaint cobblestone streets.

NEIGHBORHOOD

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.

Great location - Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. Our flight arrived late and we were still personally greater by Francisco who showed us around and made us feel at home. The washing machine was out of service but we had great support. Our laundry was picked up, cleaned and returned the same day -a very nice touch. It is a great location within walking distance to the train/metro station and many of the sites. We had a great stay.

Great View with Old World Charm

  • 4 of 5

6 of us stayed a week in Lisbon visiting Sintra, Cascais, and Lagos by train.The apartment has old world charm and a great view of the river with close proximity to train, metro, bus, tram, ferry,and taxi. There were many stores, grocery and restaurants in the Alfama area that served excellent food. The staff of Heart and Soul were helpful, responsive and lots of fun.

Great Apartment in Lisbon, clean, spacious, quiet, well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

3 couples stayed here at the end of Sept 2017. We had a good introductory meeting with Francisco where he provided information about Lisbon and our neighborhood. He left us with a bottle of wine and cookies as a welcome. The kitchen had some essentials supplies to get us started. The apartment was clean and the rooms comfortable. It was quiet considering it was in the city. The location was very convienent. Would recommend the apartment to others.

Clean and bright apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay in Remedios I. Check-in was seamless and the apartment is an easy two minute walk from the nearest train station. The apartment itself has several rooms and is well-designed for a group or family. It is also equipped with everything you might need with respect to cooking and cleaning (although the washing machine was broken during our stay). The location is fabulous, in the middle of the Alfama district on a charming mostly pedestrian street with a variety of shops, mini mercados, and restaurants. It was also conveniently located to walk (between 15 minutes to 30 minutes through lovely old streets) or catch the metro (two minute walk to the station) to the must-see sites in town. We would certainly stay here again.

We had a great stay in the wonderful apartment Remedios I and we enjoyed the nice neighborhood with small shops and good restaurants. We were 2 families travelling together and the apartment fulfilled our expectations completely. Lisbon is a great city and we will for sure come back to stay again at this property. Thanks also for the nice support from the team with all our questions!!!

perfect holidays

  • 5 of 5

The appartment was exactly as described with all facilities/equipment you might need during your holidays. The Alfama district is full of local restaurants with great simple/ local food, Fado you can hear when walking the small streets in the evening , local bakeries with fresh bread in the morning, if you appreciate all those little things this is perfect place for you. It is also great location for further trips to explore Portugal- car parking is close by, underground/train station are also very close. Last but not least - I have never experienced better customer service and I have stayed in many appartments / towns around Europe. It was far more than expected starting from our arrival when flight was delayed and check in was very late in the night, through list of recommendations what to see and where to eat in Lisbon (each place was great choice for us and we would not get to all of them without the guidance), till departure day with all help offered.
