BEAUTIFUL AND BRIGHT APARTMENT IN SUNNY LISBON HISTORIC CENTRE - ALFAMA

Alfama Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Double Bed, 1 Double Sofa-Bed. Sleeps up to 4 people

Situated in the heart of Lisbon’s most characteristic Old Quarter, just 100 metres from the renowned Fado Museum, this modern 1 bedroom apartment at Alfama is located on the 1st floor of a building totally refurbished in 2012. Tastefully decorated, the apartment can comfortably accommodate 4 guests.

• LCD TV, national and international cable channels, free wireless internet.

• Bedroom with 1 double bed and 1 double sofa bed in the living room. Dining table with 4 seats.

• Kitchen fully equipped with smoke extractor, hob and oven, cooking utensils, washing machine, hot water cylinder, fridge, freezer, microwave, toaster, nespresso coffee machine, hair dryer, iron and board.

COMPLIMENTARY PICK UP FROM LISBON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

Alfama is the oldest and most traditional of Lisbon’s neighbourhoods. Its existence can be traced back to the period of Moorish domination from the 8th century onwards. Its name comes from the Arabic Al-hamma, meaning fountains or baths and referring to the numerous water sources that used to exist and feed various fountains.

Spreading along the south east slope that descends from the mediaeval São Jorge Castle, meeting with the River Tejo and just 10 minutes walking from the apartment, we are able to find some of the most important touristy sites and monuments that Lisbon has to offer. These include Sé Patriarcal de Lisboa, Lisbon’s Cathedral and oldest church dating back to 1147 and also seat of The Archdiocese, The Monastery of São Vicente de Fora which, is a 17th century, mannerist styled masterpiece, The National Pantheon, where some of Portugal’s most important historical characters are buried or The National Museum of Fado. Other notable places of interest are The Casa dos Bicos, famous for its Gothic Architecture from the 16th century and Nobel Prize winner José de Sousa Saramago’s Foundation Headquarters, Terreiro do Paço, the royal residence from the 16th century until the 18th or the flea market known as Feira da Ladra or 'Thieves' Market'.

Alfama is also one of the old neighbourhoods where Fado runs through the blood of its people. As the purest expression of the soul and the feelings of the Portuguese, Fado can and should be enjoyed in the many restaurants and bars everywhere or simply heard through an open window in a private house.

There are several ways to discover the secrets of Alfama. Walking calmly through its picturesque labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares or taking a ride on the famous number 28 tram are two of the most enjoyable. And the breathtaking views from Santa Luzia and Portas do Sol overlooking Lisbon and The Tejo River should not be missed.

Today, Alfama is a vibrant neighbourhood with its recovered architectural heritage that combines history with a cosmopolitan feel, offering a variety of restaurants, bars and craft shops that will delight those who visit us.

Welcome to Alfama.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Really good service from Paolo, including airport pick-up late evening. The location is in the very heart of Alfama,- cant be better! Note, that there is no car traffic in the lane, but some chat from vendors and by-passing tourists. The flat is small but charming and perfect for two adults!



We will definitely be back some time!

It was an excellent choice

  • 5 of 5
So, I also definitely recommend staying in Paulo's apartment. First of all Paulo himself is a very friendly guy. He is very helpful and you really feel it is not artificial. 11 stars out of 10 for the host. Apartment is very clean, it offers enough space for a family with 2 kids. It is equipped with all necessary stuff including washing mashine and washing powder. The location is great. It is in the middle of Alfama, you can feel the city in Paulo's apartment. Lots of small restaurants nearby and a very nice small grocery just outside. During our stay in Portugal we lived in 3 different apartments and no doubt Paulo's one was the best (although we don't complain about the other two).

Quaint apartment to make you feel local

  • 5 of 5
Wow, what else can I say...

Paulo is such an amazingly helpful man who would make any guests feel at home in his apartment. It is clean, nicely painted, has pretty white shutters and kitchen gadgets you would need to make a feast. The quaint living room makes you automatically feel at home.

Paulo has maps and information booklets so you can easily work Alfama out. He fetched us from the airport which immediately put us at ease because we didn't have to find where to go when we arrived at Lisbon Airport. He also even helped us print out our bus tickets which we couldn't find, so helpful!

Even though we didn't stay long, we really enjoyed our stay here and wish we could go back already. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to feel the real Alfama lifestyle, with the cobblestone roads and small restaurants around every corner

Thank you Paulo!

Hidden Gem in Alfama

  • 5 of 5
Bright, stylish and extremely comfortable, we loved calling this charming apartment home for four days! Lisbon is incredibly beautiful, and Paulo is a lovely host. He not only went out of his way to introduce us to Lisbon before our arrival, but he also extended his friendship and concern for a happy stay throughout our time there. His warm hospitality makes you feel as though you are staying with family. (And Paulo's exquisite taste in literature also opened us to entirely new worlds of words and history! Not to mention his great advice on the best place to catch the World Cup... :-) ) We already miss the romantic alleys of Alfama, and the strains of fado and the delicious scent of freshly grilled sardines wafting through the sun-filled windows. You will not regret staying here -- this was our first reservation at VRBO.com, and we could not be more pleased. We already dream of our next return, and we cannot imagine staying anywhere else! Thank you so much, Paulo -- you are a true gem, and so is your Alfama apartment. We really can't wait to visit again!

Owner's Response: Wow, I'm blushing! Thanks for such a glowing review!
I'm sincerely touched to hear that you had such a wonderful time in Lisboa and at our apartment and you can believe me that is an enormous happiness to be able to contribute for you to know much more about our millennial history, our culture or our great food and amazing wines beyond all the natural charms anyone can see.
It was indeed an honour to meet you two and i'm looking forward to welcome you again in a near future and, this time, finally have the pleasure of see our national team beat the US one at the next football world cup. You owe me this... :-))

Great space in the Alfama.

  • 5 of 5
A great little apartment in the heart of the Alfama. Really well equipped kitchen, lovely shower and extremely comfortable bed. The apartment has plenty of space, great use of space and it's light and airy. The windows and the shutters mean that sleeping is no problem despite being in the centre of this busy area. The owner couldn't be more helpful and was kind enough to even pick us up from the airport. Great service. We'll definitely be back.

Owner's Response: As i told you since your first enquiry, once Alfama is the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon and the heart and soul of the city's feasts and our street is in the heart of Alfama, so you would be able to live within this amazing feasts. It's fantastic to know that you survived :-))

It was an honor to receive you two and i sincerely want to thank you for your kindness and comprehension and i'm looking forward to welcome you again soon.

Super séjour à Lisbonne

  • 5 of 5
Location très propre et comfortable, lumineuse et idéalement placée permettant de rayonner facilement dans Lisbonne. De multiples restos et du fado à deux pas, un propriétaire adorable que l'on aimerait avoir comme guide durant le séjour afin de partager sa passion du vin. Si vous êtes comme lui et nous n'hésitez pas à en discuter c'est passionnant. Merci Paulo pour ton accueil et nous reviendrons !

Excellent Host, Excellent property.

  • 5 of 5
We probably planned the one and only week with rain in Lisbon.Despite that:We enjoyed every moment of our stay as the property is very well located in cosy Alfama.Just opposite the door a very nice grocery store. Our host Paulo is a 6-star host.Quickly responding and while we were still at home he provided us all kinds of very useful information for our stay.This made our planning ahead very easy and thus we have been able to visit and enjoy it all.During our stay Paulo gave us another batch of nice tips.The property is clean and very well equipped. We slept very well in the comfortable bed.In short it is well worth to plan your stay in this apartment on the first floor.

Owner's Response: With so much rain you got here in Lisboa during your stay, you decided to soak me and our apartment with such a wonderful compliments that i don't know how to thank you... :-)

But, as you could felt from your own experience, Lisboa has so many more to offer to those who visit us rather than sun and blue sky. Anyway, the next time you'll come back, i really hope you can try to feel some other faces of Lisboa: the dry and sunny ones.

Thank you two so much for such a sympathy and affection. I sincerely will be honoured in having the chance of welcome you again in a near future.
