Remedios VI -sunny terrace with river view, fantastic location in historic center

HIGHLIGHTS

How amazing is this? A 1st-floor apartment with views over the river and cruise ships. A unique place where the bright sun blends with the blue river, the brick-colored roofs and small, traditional houses cascading down one of Lisbon’s 7 hills. This is a sun-drenched, 2-bedroom apartment with a lovely terrace and nice interiors, where multicolored cushions have been placed in every room. Our guests love this apartment in which every piece of furniture and detail has been carefully chosen to create an atmosphere of cheerfulness and good vibes.

DESCRIPTION

This apartment has a great distinctive feature: its lovely terrace overlooking the river, the cruise ships, the Maritime Museum and hundreds of rooftops that remind us of little terraces in the typical Portuguese nativity scenes (please check out this unique form of art at the National Museum of Ancient Art). It’s a wonderful spot to have breakfast or a drink at sunset. For very hot days, there’s a canvas awning to protect guests from the heat. There’s a main bedroom and a smaller bedroom without windows (the smaller one has a door to the hall, but also a connecting door to the main bedroom - quite useful for parents with small children).

The living room includes tiled walls and a big, highly decorative clock over a sofa, as well as an area with a sofa bed. The fully equipped kitchen is very functional and the bathroom includes a heated towel rail.

NEIGHBORHOOD

The apartment’s location is perfect, not only as it is next to some national 'jewels', but also because it’s close to streets where the locals greet each other from balcony to balcony and buy food from nearby shops, many of which haven’t changed for decades! This is the true soul of Lisbon, a lively, fascinating quarter with layer upon layer of history.

This fascinating quarter is a unique combination of centuries-old monuments, craft workshops, hidden palaces, lovely corners, old-time cafés and hanging bougainvillea that bring color to white-washed walls and lively squares where you can have a lovely meal for a very reasonable price - sardines are typical, so don’t forget to eat some with the usual baked potatoes, grilled peppers, maybe a crème brûlée for dessert, accompanied by plenty of sangria (or wine). Fado restaurants and taverns are also numerous here, because Alfama is the true heart of Lisbon’s Fado, a song whose influences go back to the time of Arab occupation (8th - 12th century AD). Yet, it only became Portugal’s national song in the early 19th century, when the Portuguese royalty fell in love with it (as did everybody else). Since 2011, Fado has been considered part of UNESCO’s intangible heritage.

This is a neighborhood of people who chat from balcony to balcony, where they sometimes hang out their clothes to dry. Typical and traditional, Alfama is a soulful quarter where locals are intense, monuments are beautiful and the many streets and corners wonderful to photograph. This is probably Lisbon’s most romantic quarter. From here you can reach most of old, historic Lisbon on foot. 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 with at first sight.

The apartment is within walking distance of 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.

  • 4 of 5

Nice appartment close to train station and a grocery store. Walking distance to Castelo de Sao Jorge and other spots.

We got personal information when we came and also a nice surprise with a bottle of wine and cookies.

The terrace was perfect and our most used area in the appartment!!

Highly recommend this appartment when staying a few days in Lisboa.

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just how we pictured it- beautiful! I can't say enough amazing things about the owners. They made us feel so comfortable and were constantly checking in to make sure we were having a great experience. They gave us unique recommendations around the city for restaurants and bars, called an early morning taxi for us, and were always a phone call away. Thank you for everything! We'll be back!

Nice apartment in good location.

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed in this apartment for 5 nights. Centrally located in the Alfama district of Lisbon, it was conveniently located to many sights we wanted to see. We traveled by train from Porto arriving in Santa Apolonia station, just two blocks from the apartment. We were able to leave our luggage in the office right next door to the apartment, and later at check in we had a thorough orientation to the apartment and area.

Many restaurants and cafes nearby, a short uphill walk to Sé Cathedral and Castle Sao Jorge. Also an easy walk to Praça Comercio area with shopping, restaurants, cafes.

This was an ideal spot to ride the train to Sintra, catch a ferry to Cacilhas, and also bus/tram to and from Belèm.

The apartment was clean and well equipped, with comfortable bedding in master bedroom. Staying 5 nights, we did feel that for more than the two of us, the small bathroom would have been challenging, and hot water in the shower was sometimes in short supply. One other possible concern would be street noise which does to go on each night into the wee hours. We did very much enjoy the wonderful terrace where we sipped wine and port each evening.

Finally, on the morning of our departure, we were easily able to get a cab to the Lisbon airport for under 15 euro. All in all, a very nice rental.

Remedios Apartment. Alfama

  • 4 of 5

Very nice apartment with a great terrace and view.Excellent location. Homely feel with the inclusion of necessary items that you don't travel with (coffee, sugar, tea, salt, washing up liquid etc). Tight second bedroom and could have done with air con for the extreme heat we experienced. Would recommend its use to others. Owners very friendly and welcoming.
