- For a low fee, our taxi service will be waiting for you at the airport arrival hall and drive you to the apartment. Have a stress free arrival knowing you are in good hands right from the start.

About Francois

I believe I understand what the foreigners want when in Lisbon, as I am a foreigner myself. I grew up in Canada and I have now adopted Lisbon as my home.

Francois purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Francois chose Lisbon District

I once resided in the Alfama district and it made perfect sense to rent a vacation apartment in this area. It is the most typical quarter where you feel like in a village within a big city. There are no supermarkets in Alfama, only local shops. It's the old Europe atmosphere.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is small but cosy. Many say it's all they need.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Nice cozy apartment that we spent three nights. Host greeted us after a short walk from the train station (straight shot to the airport). Decent wifi, close to all sorts of old Lisbon by foot.

A Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here twice. Francois is an exceptional landlord. He responds quickly to emails and cares about his guests. The property is ideal for a couple, or maybe a couple with one child, who want to experience Lisbon. We enjoy the Alfma district of cobbled alleyways and bars with Fado in the evening. We also used the property as a base last summer and took the train to the beaches most days. It's good, basic, very well maintained self-catering accommodation and to us it felt this time like coming home. We'll use the property again. We consider Francois to be one of our Lisbon friends.

Great rental for your time in Lisbon!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at Alfama House. It is a great little apartment in a fantastic location. Francois is very friendly and helpful. I have already recommended this property to friends! I would definitely stay here again.

The stairs up are a bit tight, so I would caution against having tonnes of luggage. The apartment is very clean and provides an excellent space for cooking your own meals - there is a grocery store a few blocks away. The TV and internet both worked great. It was useful to have a computer so we didn't have to plan the rest of our trip on our tiny phone screens. Having in suite laundry was probably the best part for me (I had been travelling for 4 months at that point).

There was one of the best pizza place ever just around the corner from the apartment (can't remember the name!!) and I would highly suggest it.

Authentic apartment in a lively district

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is situated in a nice neighborhood in the heart of Alfama - the old (and still) worker's district of Lisbon. It was well-prepared for our stay and especially for the needs of our baby: The owner arranged for a baby bed and a bouncer. From the very beginning - that is even before arriving - the contact with the owner was very helpful and friendly, be it in regard of how to get to the apartment or what to do in Lisbon once arrived. The home is a tiny place in a house that has kept its medieval structures (unfortunately the water pressure in the shower has, too) but still provides enough space for two and a half. It is furnished with an eye to detail and very comfortable. We took our breakfast every morning in the Alfama bakery next to the apartment - don't miss it, it's very good, friendly and not expensive. In the evening you don't have to go to a Fado place as you can hear Fado until midnight - the neighborhood is really authentic and communicative. For people who don't mind a lively environment Alfama House is just perfect.

A taste of the real Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We loved the contrast between the modern amenities in the apartment and the older, more traditional surroundings of Alfama. This meant we were able to enjoy our holiday in extreme comfort, while at the same time experiencing a taste of the real Lisbon and the good-nature of the people of Alfama. The festival of Santo Antonio was fantastic and we feel very lucky to have timed our visit for this period. The service we received from Francois was very attentive and we would not hesitate to return to the same place as we know that we would get the very best service and be in a part of Lisbon which really inspires us.

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The Alfama House was everything we expected and more! My boyfriend and I just got back from our trip to Lisbon and it was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Francois answered all of my questions about Lisbon and about the apartment right away, easing all of my concerns. The apartment is the perfect size for a couple and the location is fantastic. We found it very easy to walk to the downtown area as well as the subway when needed. Breakfast at the bakery only a few doors down from the apartment was very good, we went daily! Overall it was an amazing experience and we would recommend it to anyone looking to rent in Lisbon!
