I believe I understand what the foreigners want when in Lisbon, as I am a foreigner myself. I grew up in Canada and I have now adopted Lisbon as my home.

Francois purchased this apartment in 2008

I once resided in the Alfama district and it made perfect sense to rent a vacation apartment in this area. It is the most typical quarter where you feel like in a village within a big city. There are no supermarkets in Alfama, only local shops. It's the old Europe atmosphere.

The apartment is small but cosy. Many say it's all they need.

Authentic apartment in a lively district

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is situated in a nice neighborhood in the heart of Alfama - the old (and still) worker's district of Lisbon. It was well-prepared for our stay and especially for the needs of our baby: The owner arranged for a baby bed and a bouncer. From the very beginning - that is even before arriving - the contact with the owner was very helpful and friendly, be it in regard of how to get to the apartment or what to do in Lisbon once arrived. The home is a tiny place in a house that has kept its medieval structures (unfortunately the water pressure in the shower has, too) but still provides enough space for two and a half. It is furnished with an eye to detail and very comfortable. We took our breakfast every morning in the Alfama bakery next to the apartment - don't miss it, it's very good, friendly and not expensive. In the evening you don't have to go to a Fado place as you can hear Fado until midnight - the neighborhood is really authentic and communicative. For people who don't mind a lively environment Alfama House is just perfect.

A taste of the real Lisbon

  • 5 of 5
We loved the contrast between the modern amenities in the apartment and the older, more traditional surroundings of Alfama. This meant we were able to enjoy our holiday in extreme comfort, while at the same time experiencing a taste of the real Lisbon and the good-nature of the people of Alfama. The festival of Santo Antonio was fantastic and we feel very lucky to have timed our visit for this period. The service we received from Francois was very attentive and we would not hesitate to return to the same place as we know that we would get the very best service and be in a part of Lisbon which really inspires us.

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5
The Alfama House was everything we expected and more! My boyfriend and I just got back from our trip to Lisbon and it was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Francois answered all of my questions about Lisbon and about the apartment right away, easing all of my concerns. The apartment is the perfect size for a couple and the location is fantastic. We found it very easy to walk to the downtown area as well as the subway when needed. Breakfast at the bakery only a few doors down from the apartment was very good, we went daily! Overall it was an amazing experience and we would recommend it to anyone looking to rent in Lisbon!

cosy comfort in a fantastic city

  • 5 of 5
The kitchen and bathroom were just renovated before our arrival.
The appartment is very cosy, clean and everything is there to relax from a bussy day of sightseeing.
It is easy to move around in the city, the train /metro-station is nearby.
Also the friendly bakkery, just a few houses away, was very handy. You can have breakfast there or take away sandwiches.
There are enough restaurants in the neighbourhood.
The pc and free internet is also a plus!
We will advertise Lisbon and we will be back!

A perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Alfama House for three nights in October. We wished we could have stayed longer. The apartment and its location was the perfect ending to our two week journey through Spain and Portugal. The Alfama House is centrally located and walking distance to some of the best parts of Lisboa. And when our feet would carry us no further, the public transportation (train, trolley, subway and ferry) system was very easy to reach and navigate from the Alfama House. We couldn't have asked for a better experience in a more culturally rich community. The apartment met all of our needs, and the opportunity to submerge ourselves in the Alfama District, has left a lasting impression that we experienced something very special and unique we will never forget.

Francois, the owner of the Alfama House, left us a hand written guide to the Alfama District, which we took advantage of. In particular, dinner and the Fado performances at Dragao de Alfama, were amazing. We also took the ferry across the Tejo River and had sunset drinks at Atira te ao rio and then a clams and crab dinner at Cabrinha. Make time for these experiences, you won't be disappointed.

Francois also left us a voucher for a complementary breakfast at the bakery a few doors down from the Alfama House (same side of the road). Their ham and cheese (with butter) croissant sandwich topped our list of favorite breakfasts.

We fell in love with Portugal and can't wait to return and stay at the Alfama House again.

Lovely apartment, great service

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely little apartment situated in the heart of Alfama, a charming pedestrian district (which is very hilly, so not recommended for people who don't want a little exercise!) Two metro stops from the centre of town (or a short walk and the 28 tram to most tourist destinations) this is a lovely apartment which has everything you need (washing machine, nice lounge with TV and stereo, comfy bed, fridge freezer and hob). The contact Francois is lovely and incredibly helpful, and check in and check out was easy and fast. Excellent value for money, would stay here again,
