About The Owner

I am passionate about travelling, arts and Lisbon. I spent most of my childhood in this typical neighborhood before moving to Barcelona to study graphic design for three years. Our family lived in this beautiful apartment for many years, where we always welcomed those we love. We would like to share its charm, character and history with you. I am looking forward to hosting you in our family house and hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Excellent accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Have used Home Away for more than 10 years, this apartment was one of the best places to stay. Terrific owner, arranged for airport transfer, met us early with warm pastries, checked on us via email during stay. Very central location, large, beautifully decorated space to accommodate everyone, prompt refund of the deposit. Will definitely use again when in Lisbon!

Beautifully appointed in the best location to experience all the charms of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th trip to Lisbon and the apartment Casa da Sé surpasses any other apartment or hotel room I have had in Lisbon. This apartment is ideally located at a lower level of the historic Alfama neighborhood near the river as well as the Baixa. A few steps up is the castle or castelo. Fado bars abound below. The street just outside the door offers wonderful restaurants ideal for any meal.

The apartment itself is an architectural treat with old world charm and room for families or multiple people traveling together. The building is easy to locate and re-locate after a day of exploring because of its nearness to the historic cathedral.

The host, Inés, was exceptionally communicative and gave knowledgeable advice. I will always be grateful to her for making an iron and ironing board available after our month of travels around the Iberian Peninsula.

All five of us found it to be very comfortable with plenty of bathrooms and a lovely kitchen and multiple dining spaces for those who like to eat in. All and all - a five-star experience.

Great location. Comfortable space.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is located in Alfama, within walking distance of everything that's to see in this beautiful city. There are great restaurants and cafes all around. The apartment is very comfortable for 2 couples and has all the necessary amenities (well stocked kitchen, WiFi, etc.). The hostess, Inês, is very gracious. She makes the check-in and check-out process very straightforward. She is alway available with any questions about the apartment or the city. The only downsides to the apartment are that it's dingy and very noisy from the surrounding apartments. That aside, it's a great place to stay.

Unique and charming house in excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! It is so unique looking and the location was perfect- right in the Alfama district. We were able to walk everywhere with lots of restaurants, bars and shops nearby! Ines was so helpful in recommending places to visit and eat and she even arranged a taxi for us to the train station on the day we were leaving.

The house has everything you need from kitchen supplies, coffee, linens and is very spacious! Our only complaint was that the mattresses were very hard but other than that, the place was perfect!
