Hello,

We're Helena, Ana Rita and Alexandra. Welcome to our family business!

Our experience in the short term is from 2006 when we started renting Casa Lapa, and in 2009 we decided to expand our business and take it to a higher level of professionalism. Most of our Lisbon apartments are fully managed by us so that we can guarantee the quality of service appreciated by guests who have already stayed in one of our rental house. In 2012 we decided to open a Guest House in Alfama, our favorite historic neighborhood.

Whether in our Lisbon apartments, Cascais beach rentals, Arrábida villa or Sweet Lisbon Guesthouse we hope you will have a pleasant stay and experience the beauty of Portugal has to offer.

Of course, there is always room for improvement as we expect your suggestions!

Thank you for staying with us.

Helena, Ana Rita and Alexandra

Great Authentic Location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 4, 2008
  • Stayed: Nov 2007
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we loved the apartment, the location and being in the centre of Alfama. The apartment is exceptionally well catered for, very clean, quiet, (although the surrounding streets can be a bit noisy with the chatter of the local residents, only until 10pm). The consideration of the owners with the items left in the apartment (books, games, equipment, cooking utensils etc.) is second to none. If you are looking for an authentic apartment in a traditional Lisboa area, which is unique and original then this is the apartment for you. However, be prepared for the stairs up to the apartment, which are steep but easily manageable even after a few glasses of wine!

très agréable appartement, dans un Beco très calme de l'Alfama. Très bien situé. Logement fonctionnel, propre, très bien équipé,sans vis à vis, ce qui laisse une vue agréable et prometteuse sur le Tajo. Helena, Laura et Ana sont très sympathiques et hyper disponibles.

Great apartment amongst narrow Alfama streets

A great little apartment, with more character than the photos suggest. Fantastically well-equipped in terms of kitchen gadgets and board games. Also a great location in a very relaxed part of town, with plenty of reasonable restaurants nearby. The only downside is the 30 EUR fee for late evening check-in.

Visiting Alfama is to visit the architecture, the sounds and the smells of old Lisbon. This is one of the most typical Lisbon's quarters. On its narrow streets you'll find a the hidden treasure and on its steep stairs you will be able to breathe the soul of Lisbon. Alfama is one of the most emblematic quarters and one of the most rewarding for walkers and photographers thanks to its medieval alleys and outstanding views.

Because its foundation is dense bedrock, it survived to the 1755 earthquake, and a walk through this old-fashioned residential neighborhood is now a travel in time. It is a village within a city made of narrow streets, tiny squares, churches, and whitewashed houses with wrought-iron balconies decorated with pots of flowers, drying laundry, and singing birds.

It was settled by the Romans and Visigoths (it was also an important Jewish quarter in the 15th century), but it was the Moors who gave the district its atmosphere and name.
