Overview

Alfama Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4 (or 6 using the sofa in living room)

Casa d'Alfama was awarded the Certificate of Excellence 2014 by TripAdvisor.

Located in the heart of the medieval Moorish and Jewish neighborhood of Alfama, the apartment has a stunning view over the wide River Tagus estuary. At walking distance of some of Lisbon’s leading museums and monuments, the apartment has a choice of typical grocers nearby as well as family-run restaurants, supermarkets, outdoors cafes, bars and other shops.

The apartment is in a building nestling the slope of a hill, 100 m above sea level, overlooking the river, so while its main, and private, entrance is on the ground-floor, you can enjoy the stunning river view from the second floor balconies on the other side of the building, without having to climb any stairs.

The building is facing south, the apartment is sunny and bright. You can sit in the living room and admire the beautiful light of the sunset over old town roofs and the amazing Tagus water's mirror.

Casa d’Alfama is duly registered in the Tourism Authority of Portugal (#986/AL) and respect Portuguese laws and regulations.

Expérience PARFAITE!

  • 5 of 5

Expérience juste PARFAITE à tous les points de vue. Une hôte chaleureuse, organisée, généreuse en bons plans et bonnes adresses. Un appart spacieux et lumineux, offrant propreté impeccable, bonne acoustique, calme et vue lointaine pour gambader sur les toits de l’Alfama ou plonger dans le Tage (et en prime : un des seuls coins de verdures du quartier juste sous les fenêtres de l’appartement), équipement complet jusqu’aux cd de Fado ou de Jazz et pour couronner le tout un emplacement idéal pour découvrir Lisbonne, situé en plein coeur d’un quartier vraiment authentique et très facilement accessible avec le Tram 28. Encore un grand merci. Une adresse à conserver précieusement!

Wonderful apartment, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in the very heart of Alfama, om a quiet street close to small restaurants and shops. The view from the apartment, across the white houses of Alfama towards the Tagus river, is beautiful. The apartment is well furnished, with a nice collection of books on Lisbon and Portugal, as well as a big collection of music.

Just what I would expect from a city apartment

  • 5 of 5

ENG:

I was travelling alone, writing my next book. The apartment offered everything I needed. Very clean, all equipments in the kitchen, electric heating, furniched with great taste. And no kitch!

As I like to know better the lifestyle of the people where ever I go, these old quarters offered me just what I like the best in modern cities. The height differencies are quite large, but as I have no problems with my legs and knees, I took it as a daily exercise. And as soon I got to know my neigborhood - in few days - I managed to walk the less steep streets.

Nearby there are countless small shops and cafes. It takes 15 minutes to walk to the biggest supermarket Pingo Doce, which has everything you normally need for your cooking. Pingo Doce is quite difficult to find, if you don't know the name and the place, because they don't have the word "supermercado" in their sign at all. The easiest way to get there is to take an elevator seven floors down from the balcony on the Rua dos Fanqueiros 170.

Absolutely happy and thankful, that a friend of mine had been in this apartment before and she recommended this for me. Thanks, Riitta!

And the landlady is really marvellous and helpful. A big thank you!

FI:

Todella mahtava asunto! Korkeuseroja on alueella runsaasti, mutta jos haluat asua Lissabonin vanhassa kaupungissa ja aistia menneiden aikakausien elämää, niin tuskin löydät parempaa sijaintia. Kapeilla kaduilla ja kujilla on paikoitellen vieri vieressä pieniä kahviloita ja myymälöitä, joista saat päivittäiset tarvikkeet. Tai vaikkapa lasillisen viiniä (0,50€) tai kupillisen espressoa (0,60€). (Hinnat tammi-helmikuussa 2015.)

Vartin kävelymatkan päässä on länteen avautuva näköalatasanne, josta kulkee hissi seitsemän kerrosta alas, alueen parhaimman supermarketin Pingo Docen sisäänkäynnin eteen. Kauppa ei ole järisyttävän iso, mutta sieltä saa kaiken, mitä normaalisti tarvitsee. Suosittelen ostamaan kokonaisen kanin, ruskistamaan, hauduttamaan punaviinissä ja tekemään siitä runsailla kasviksilla ryyditetyn padan.

Asunto on erittäin siisti, erittäin hyvällä maulla kalustettu. Ei kitchiä! Kaikki mukavuudet, sähkölämmitys, kaksi ranskalaistyylistä parveketta. Ja upea näköala joelle, suoraan etelään.

Vuokraemäntä on aarre: asiallinen, täsmällinen, huumorintajuinen ja sydämellinen.

Mahtavat puitteet onnistuneelle kaupunkilomalle. Tai työrupeamalle, kuten minun tapauksessani. Wifi toimi moitteettomasti koko ajan!

Well-equiped apartment with a stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent place to stay, in the heart of Lisbon's Alfama district. Dripping with history and charm, close to many fado venues and great restaurants, cafe's, shops and to the Praca Commercio, where so many civic events take place. It was inspiring to watch cruise ships of all sizes come in to port and dock within full view. The owner is very helpful and accommodating, providing everything needed to enjoy our lengthy stay of one full month. We will recommend this apartment to any friends who visit Lisbon in the future!

Una piacevole sorpresa

  • 5 of 5

L'appartamento corrisponde alla descrizione, risulta confortevole e piacevole: cucina ben equipaggiata, una piccola biblioteca con alcuni preziosi libri su Lisboa e per gli amanti del fado qualche CD che ne traccia la storia. Cristina cordiale e dinamica è sempre diposnibile e risolve prontamente qualsiasi problema.
