Overview

About the property

Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 2, Sleeps 7

Located at the heart of Alfama, Lisbon’s oldest and most fascinating quarter, this bright apartment is ideal for families or groups. Sunny and spacious, it offers scenic views to the beautiful Tagus river.Together with lovely interiors, a sundrenched living room and beautiful surroundings are this apartment’s main features. (3rd floor without lift)

Additionally it is next door to some national 'jewels' such as the Fado Museum, São Vicente de Fora convent, Se 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.

Recently renovated, this bright apartment offers 3 bedrooms, one of them with bathroom ensuite (all can have a double bed or 2 singles and the master bedroom can have an extra bed) and 2 bathrooms (with showers, one is ensuite). The spacious and comfortable living-room with river view is connected with the fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare delicious breakfasts and meals. From the balcony you can admire the Tejo's estuary with its golden reflections and the boats passing by while enjoying a glass of wine!

NEIGHBORHOOD

This fascinating quarter is a unique combination of century-old monuments, crafts workshops, hidden palaces, lovely corners, old time cafés, hanging bougainvilleas 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 do not forget to eat some with the usual baked potatoes, grilled peppers, maybe a crème brulée for dessert, together with much sangria (or wine). Fado restaurants and taverns are also numerous here, because Alfama is truly Lisbon’s Fado quarter, 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 beginning of 19th century, when the Portuguese royalty fell in love with it (and everybody else too). Since 2011, Fado is considered part of UNESCO intangible heritage.

This is a quarter of people who speak at each other from balcony to balcony, where they sometimes hang washed clothes. 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, historical Lisbon on foot. On your way, you will also come across grocers, shoemakers and other artisans who have been selling their products for over 40 years! This is real, genuine Lisbon, with which most visitors fall in love at first glance.

The apartment is walking distance from some of Lisbon’s highlights 5 min from the Panteão Nacional (where the Portuguese royal family and prestigious Portuguese are buried) and São Vicente de Fora convent; São Jorge Castle and the Se 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 will also have to explore Belém - the Museum quarter. So please take a bus or a tram and spend some time there. Loads to see in Belém!

Nearby, less than a 5 min walk, runs the ultra-famous 28 tram line which crosses some of the best historical quarters, as well as Santa Apolónia metro and train station which links Lisbon to all 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 village of Sintra.

Alfama Tagus

  • 5 of 5

A terrific apartment, well fitted out, great location for exploring Lisbon, superb orientation and recommendations by Carlos. The binder for both the procedures to follow but more interestingly, recommendations for things to do and see and especially the manner in which they recommend restaurants and cafes by location, cost, type of food etc, is all color coded. We've stayed with VRBO and HomeAway all over the world and this is by far the best "Things to do and see" book we've ever used!
