Alfama Apartment Rental Photos and Description
A fantastic 2 bedroom apartment with a terrace and the best view!
The apartment is on the 3rd floor (no lift/elevator)of a 18th century palace built by Conde (Count) de Penafiel, the royal postmaster, and the building still displays his coat of arms carved in stone. Laid out on two floors, it consists of a living room, study, hall/dining area, ample bathroom and kitchen with original 18th century hand-painted tiles and stone fireplace surround, roof terrace and two double bedrooms. It should be noted that the bedrooms are under the eaves of the building and therefore standing height is limited (although the 6 foot owner has lived there happily for many years)and the stairs leading to the bedrooms have limited handrail protection making the flat unsuitable for disabled people or young children.
The owners, who still use the apartment as their home, provide local information about to getting around, where to eat and what to see.
Sleeps 4 with possibility of an additional person on the futon in the study
Due to the lack of lift/elevator in the building and the stairs inside the apartment, this property is not suitable for disabled people or children under the age of 6.
