Very special experience

By no means this apartment is very special. The location in the Alfama is great and the surroundings ideal for evening walk-outs enjoying the Lisbon authentic life. The apartment is newly renovated and the people responsible for decoration did a fabulous job. There are many things to explore just by sitting and looking around. Beside preserving the old, the kitchen is modernly equiped with what you need for living. The overall feeling is very cosy. Fatima welcomed us and informed the family about all facilities, restaurants and points of interest in the vincinity with enthusiasm.
One had to get used to the fact that there is only one window facing the front yard which can be opend to have fresh air getting in (the pictures don't show this). You won't see the sky from the apartment. In addition, all sleeping and bathrooms are without a window which is cosy but also not expected from the pictures. Air in the rooms can get a bit musty after a warm night. The first floor is just 1.80m from floor to ceiling, we overlooked this information.
In summary: great place and location, nicely and individually decorated, cosy for those who are not open window maniacs. For a family of four it was perfect regarding space for more people it could get crowdy. Price range seems rather high.
