VERY QUIET AND SUNNY WITH STUNNING VIEWS OVER ALFAMA ROOFS AND TAGUS RIVER

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.

Suitability:
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

  • 5 of 5
une petite rue tranquille dans un quartier historique (donc, fréquenté par le tourisme)
pas de bars branchés (mais des restaurants dans les rues voisines)
pas de commerces (mais tout près: de quoi remplir le frigo, faire plaisir à ses amis au retour "au pays", manger un bout tranquille dans la douceur de la nuit, écouter du fado)
des gens qui passent, en tout respect et curiosité, un peu déroutés par les arabesques urbaines de l'Alfama
un appartement adorablement agencé et entretenu, ultra pratique, bien équipé
une vue magnifique sur le Tage et les variations d'intensité de la lumière de Lisbonne
de la musique de qualité - variée - à disposition (CD)
quelques chefs d'œuvre cinématographiques (DVD) à disposition pour les moments où on se repose d'avoir arpenté les collines de Lisboa
des quartiers populaires, moins touristiques, tout près (Mouraria, Graça)
la gare de Santa Apolonia à proximité
les quais
le tram 28 (que l'on prendra, ou dont on suivra les rails pour suivre son chemin)
une literie confortable
des serviettes de bain
et tout le matériel de cuisine nécessaire pour se fabriquer soi-même les quelques plats de poisson que l'on pourra improviser, ou cuisiner en suivant les recettes dans les livres de cuisine à disposition (je vous recommande le magasin de poisson surgelé de Graça - du choix et des prix imbattables pour un citadin d'une autre ville d'Europe)
des livres à disposition (histoire, tourisme, fiction)
un endroit où on se sent bien
ailleurs (Lisboa !!) et à la fois au plus près de soi
un appartement agencé avec l'intention manifeste que les hôtes s'y sentent comme chez eux

merci Cristina

Come in - and find out the heart of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely amazing. Well equipped, spacious apartment right in the middle of Alfama, where you can hear Lisbon's heartbeat better than everywhere else. We stayed there in June - while Lisbon went mad celebrating it's Festa. But: No problem at all, a little noisy and rather lively, but nothing that kept our little children from sleep in Casa d'Alfama. Cristina, the apartment's owner, was a very helpful person. And if your are looking for something to complain about: Yes, it takes a rather long time till the water comes out really hot out of the shower. But if this is something that really pisses you off - you'd better look out for another place than Lisbon.

Owner's Response: Dear Olivier
Thank you for your nice and colorful review.
I have to make 2 small remarks, so people don't get wrong ideas.
1. June is the month of the celebration of Saint Anton, the saint venerated in Lisbon, and there are many cultural events and music festivals going on all over Lisbon. On the night of the 12 there is a big celebration party and on that day Alfama and the other popular neighborhoods are really noisy. You have to surrender and join the party…
But otherwise the apartment is very quiet and you hear no traffic or noisy people, like for instance in Bairro Alto.
2. In the apartment the water is warmed up by a gas water heater. Unlike with an electric water heater, you have to wait a few minutes until the water, while running, warms up. But you do get warm water after 2 minutes.

Apartment with wonderful views.

  • 5 of 5
This apartment with its wonderful views and magnificent location, has stolen our hearts. We have had a super experience, and will definitely choose this apartment again, when we're going to Lisbon next time. We love the location in the heart of Alfama and with the district's many restaurants and Fado deals.
Youy can even hear the Fado songs from the balcony in the evening.

great apartment

  • 4 of 5
really lovely apartment, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. it was lovely to have so much room (just 2 of us went but the flat could easily sleep 4). other than the taxi driver struggling to find the place when we arrived from the airport all went really well. we liked being able to walk to the local supermarket,shops and a range of nice restaurants were on the doorstep (our favourite was the lovely pateo 13, you must try this if you go). was great to sit in the evening looking out at the tagus and drinking the local wine. a very enjoyable stay :-)

The apartement is in the middle of alfama! Nice fado restaurant around the corner.
The apartament is as seen in the photos. Very cosy and lots of space. Nice kitchen. All rooms were clean. Good WiFi
Christina is a good host and provided a detailed map of the neighborhood with lots of suggestions for bars restaurants etc.
We liked bistro gato pardo for lunch and dinner!
You can walk to the miradores and the castle. Of course we also took the tram 12 across the Barrio.
We recomment staying here when you are in lisboa

Thank you for your review. Since I don't see any negative remarks in your comments, on the contrary, I would like to know how could I improve my offer to deserve 5 stars…
Best regards

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
Cristina est une hôtesse accueillante et discrète ; son très bel appartement est admirablement bien situé, très bien aménagé et calme. Nous nous sommes tout de suite sentis "comme chez nous" tout en étant ailleurs. Séjournant souvent dans des gites ou appartements locatifs, nous sommes en mesure d'apprécier, par comparaison, celui de Cristina à Alfama. Très vivement recommandé !
