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 City

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.

Alfama

  • 4 of 5

Francois was very friendly and informative. He met us at the Metro and walked us to the apartment. Area has many steep walkways so if you have mobility issues this area is not for you. Apartment was clean, small but sufficient for our needs. Within easy walking distance to the Commerce Square. Alfama was safe with many great restaurants and small grocery stores nearby. Would recommend this apartment to other travellers.

Modern clean design and spotlessly clean. Big living area and comfy bed. Plus modern kitchen & bath

  • 5 of 5

Francois met me at the Fado museum as the narrow streets would be hard to figure when you first arrive. He pointed out all the best local restaurants as we walked. And spent a lot of time making sure I was comfortable with everything in the apt. Plus his nicely written travelers book was very useful.

I can't say enough about the charm of the Alfama neighborhood and this apartment is perfectly located. Make sure you start your morning at Pastelaria Alfama Doce - bakery - for best pastry in Portugal

Great location for seeing the oldest streets of Lisbon

  • 4 of 5

The unit is small and compact but has everything you need for a short stay. The kitchen is well equipped. The host was very helpful in arranging transportation and recommending local restaurants. The unit is up two flights of stairs, so not be suited for people with limited mobility.

Perfect!

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.
