WINDOWS ON RIVER TAGUS: COMFORT AND ROMANCE IN HISTORIC ALFAMA

Alfama Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Enjoy amazing views of the river from this luxury 860 square foot duplex in the heart of Lisbon's historic district of Alfama. Walking distance to the most pictoresque restaurants and Fado places, but also very conveniently located very close to the metro, bus and train station. Stroll down a pedestrian cobble stone street, to enter the first floor of this ancient house completely rebuilt in 2010.

This light-filled apartment combines contemporary art and design with traditional materials, such as the Portuguese stone and wooden floors. On the first floor it features a fully equipped kitchen (washer & dryer, dishwasher, double oven, freezer), a dining area, a living with a leather Queen size sofa bed, entertainment (Clavinova Yamaha piano, CD/DVD player, TV) and a bathroom with shower. On the second floor, the master bedroom with a wonderful en-suite bathroom (with bath tube) and even more stunning views over the river.

Welcome package available.

For us it was love-at-first sight: living here is just beautiful!

I work in the public sector but I have a passion for painting and visual arts, so I seize every opportunity to participate in contemporary art workshops and be close to colours and creativity. I am a mother of a little baby and enjoy family outings with her, especially when she gets the attention of the whole restaurant! Like her mother she is a born traveller and already crossed the Atlantic twice back and forth before one year of age.

beatrice covassi purchased this apartment in 2010

I fell in love with Lisbon where I used to go often for work and then I fell in love with my husband, who is from Lisbon! So, we decided to buy this lovely romantic spot with views on the river to renew every year our passion and breath the Atlantic breeze from the other side of the Pond.

The stunning views of the river, the light that fills the place, the quiteness at night (with the exception of the feast of S.Antonio on 12 June when everybody is in the street), the beauty of living in an old district (Freguesia in Portuguese) of Santo Estevao where people are mostly locals and there is still the feeling of belonging to a community. All this makes staying in Santo Estevao a unique experience and we can't wait to go back every year. It gives a different pace and a different texture to life.

Great apartment very well situated in Alfama, close to our favorite sushi restaurant "Bica do Sapato". We know Lisbon quite well but thanks to this apartment got to know Alfama lot better.

We really enjoyed staying here

We really enjoyed staying here in this flat and in Alfama. The atmosphere was great and we loved the views of the Tejo. We liked the sightseeing bus tour and the market at Cais do Sodre. After the nice food and wine we really have to make a lot of sports at home.

We had a wonderful time in the Alfama. The wirling streets, the delicious food, the Fado music, and perhaps especially the beautiful tile work seemingly everywhere - all made for a most charming stay.

Memorable stay in historical Alfama

I rented this cute apartment for 2 weeks while i was taking an intensive Portuguese course downtown. Loved coming home to this warm and very well equipped abode--modern in the midst of the charms of Alfama, including the close neighbourly relationships, which helped me practice my language skills. People are very friendly, there are a couple of small grocery shops nearby, bakeries and restaurants. The subway is just 5 minutes walk--could not be more convenient... At the same time you can set off on foot into the medivial little streets and romantic walks of Alfama. Perfect for a short holiday!

Fado houses. Alfama is the heart of Fado, the traditional Portuguese music that speaks of love and saudade. Some are just a few munutes from our place, already in Rua dos Remedios. A part from several and good traditional ones, such as the Mesa dos Frates, look out for the ones that advertise 'Fado vadio': this means that singers are not only pro but also locals who know how to sing fado. The quality is mixed but the entertainment is guaranteed.
