'WHITE HOUSE' APARTMENT - IN THE HEART OF OLD LISBON - GRAÇA / ALFAMA

Alfama Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom apartment for maximum 5 people near São Jorge Castle

This apartment is on 3th floor of a centenary building with 1 double bedroom and a twin bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and a bright living room. Located in a very typical and historic area on one of Lisbon’s seven hills. Across the road you find a typical Portuguese bakery, I'll recommend you to try Pão da Avó (Grandmother’s Bread). Within a 5 minute walk you are in the castle; on the opposite side at the same distance, you get to various museums and monuments. You also cannot miss the exciting city tour, taking the famous tram No. 28, it stops 50 m from the apartment. All kind of restaurants, shop and important churches and museums are easily accessible by walk.

Lisbon City: The capital of Portugal since its conquest from the Moors in 1147, Lisbon is a legendary city with over 20 centuries of History. The Alfama is one of the oldest quarters in Lisboa. Since it largely survived the earthquake of 1755, the area still retains much of its original layout. Adjacent to the Alfama are the likewise old quarters of Castelo and Mouraria, on the western and northern slopes of the hill that is crowned by St. George's Castle. Every year in June, the streets of all three quarters come alive with the feasts in honour of the popular saints. The Graça quarter and the churches of São Vicente de Fora and Santa Engrácia are within walking distance of this area. Radiant skies brighten the monumental city, with its typical tile covered building façades and narrow.

Suitability:
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • pets not allowed
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • non smoking only

Comfortable apartment

  • 4 of 5
This was a small but comfortable apartment and we had a wonderful 5-night stay. Location was convenient to public transportation as well as many shops and restaurants. One should be warned that it is the top floor with 3 flights of stairs totaling 35 - not a problem if you're in shape, but could be difficult for some. Lovely view from the terrace. 2nd bedroom is just barely fits the bunk beds that are in it and there is no closet in the other, larger bedroom. But it was clean, comfortable, and the owner arranged for our taxi to the airport, which made things very easy. TV and wireless worked without a hitch. Had a lovely stay.

excellent vacation in Alfama - Lisbon

  • 5 of 5
Everything was absolutely splendid!
The service from Ms. Silva was great - the apartment was very clean and in a fantastic part of the city! The owner: Mr. Gomes was extremely helpful.Despite the distance, there is absolutely no problem to reach the apartment from the airport. We thouroughly enjoyed the area of the city, Alfama and will definitely be back for another stay.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this apartment to others!

dik in orde!

  • 5 of 5
appartement was zoals beschreven. Onthaal was ietske minder omdat de mijnheer geen engels kon. Goede bedden, wat ook belangrijk is. Er mochten wel wat leuke adresjes gelegen hebben, bv waar de bakker is en dergelijke. Heel mooi gelegen in de Alfama-wijk. Niet voor mensen die niet goed te been zijn : het app is gelegen op de derde verdieping met steile trap! Gezellig ingericht. Was zijn prijs/kwaliteit meer dan waar. Een aanrader. Eigenaar was per mail direkt bereikbaar. App. is voor 4 personen, doch ik zou er 2 volw en 2 kinderen van maken (stapelbed). Wel weinig opbergruimte voor kledij (kast zit achter stapelbed, wat niet praktisch is). conclusie : ik zou er direct terug naar toe gaan.

Fantastic Alfama-Lisbon Home Base

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from Portugal and had a fantastic time at the White House. We travelled most of the country but loved the Alfama district and Lisbon most of all. The apartment was a fantastic home base for us with everything we needed. It is very clean and well equipped.

The apartment is in a very old and vibrant neighborhood (the Alfama is one of the few areas to retain some of its pre-earthquake character) with views over the rooftops to the hills beyond. The tram is in easy walking distance as is the metro.

I cannot say enough about the owner who is extremely responsive and helpful, even delivering a baby seat in person for our two year old daughter.

The place was fantastic as was the service and detailed instruction and help provided by the owner.
