Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4 (or 6 using the sofa in living room)

Located in the heart of the medieval Moorish and Jewish neighborhood of Alfama, the apartment has a stunning view over the wide River Tagus estuary. At walking distance of some of Lisbon’s leading museums and monuments, the apartment has a choice of typical grocers nearby as well as family-run restaurants, supermarkets, outdoors cafes, bars and other shops.

The apartment is in a building nestling the slope of a hill, 100 m above sea level, overlooking the river, so while its main, and private, entrance is on the ground-floor, you can enjoy the stunning river view from the second floor balconies on the other side of the building, without having to climb any stairs.

The building is facing south, the apartment is sunny and bright. You can sit in the living room and admire the beautiful light of the sunset over old town roofs and the amazing Tagus water's mirror.

Casa d’Alfama is duly registered in the Tourism Authority of Portugal (#986/AL) and respect Portuguese laws and regulations.

Great apartment. Just like the photographs.

  • 5 of 5

After landing in Lisbon enjoyed a quick ride to the flat from the airport and arrived just as Cristina was getting there too with the keys --- and a good thing too! Taxi driver was trying double the fare to over 20 euros despite showing 10 on the meter, but Cristina was having none of that and was right in the guy's face and ready to go to the police station. Wow! Disgruntled driver was forced to give back part of the fare and sped off in high dungeon. You rock Cristina! The flat met all of our expectations. Roomy. High ceilings with lots of morning sun coming in and a great view of the Tagus. Superbly equipped kitchen came in handy when we decided to cook for ourselves once or twice during our week in Lisbon. Ideal for one couple, but would also work for two couples sharing and comfortable with living in close quarters. When, (not if) we return to Lisbon we'll hope to stay at Cristina's again!

This apartment was excellent. It had everything that you could possibly need and was very clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience here for four nights in April. Margarid was excellent at check in and was full of helpful information and was always on hand to help if required. Thank you. The location is perfect and close to a great variety of shops, bars and restaurants. It a short walk down to the waterfront and has excellent transport links. Cristina provoided fantastically detailed map of the local area that came useful for the duration of the stay. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone looking for a quality holiday apartment.

Wonderful location, so easy to get anywhere in Lisboa.

  • 5 of 5

Treated like old friend when we arrived. We were made to feel comfortable with the amenities of our home as well as the city environment to include transportation. We had to leave for the airport at 3 in the morning and we were given great assistance in securing reliable transportation.

Highly recommend this spot. I've never been to Lisboa but will definitely stay here on my next trip.

Wunderbar gemütlich und gut gelegen

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben hier eine wunderbare Winterwoche verbracht. Die Wohnung lässt einen sofort zuhause fühlen. In einem alten Haus, mitten in der Alfama, mit schönen alten Böden und Türen, geschmackvoll eingerichtet, hat sie alles, was man zum Wohlfühlen braucht. Der Blick über den Tejo bildet einen reizvollen Kontrast zu den engen Gassen, in denen das Haus liegt. Zu Fuß ist es nicht weit zur legendären Straßenbahnlinie 28, mit der man überall hinkommt. Und auch ins Zentrum und zur U-Bahn ist es nicht weit.

Der Kontakt zur Gastgeberin war von der ersten Mail an nett, unkompliziert und zuverlässig, es hat alles super geklappt.

A perfect roost in Lisbon!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect apartment! Well appointed, amazing view, perfect service. Cristina was always available by email when you had a question. She also made a map which was indispensible for getting around the maze of the Alfama. (though we still managed to spend a lot of time getting lost.) (a lot!) (Don't lose the map). The kitchen is well appointed and even has some tea and a little pasta in it. (No guarantee for that - but it was nice to have something when we were too tired to shop or go out.) There are lots of places to lounge and even stretch out. Both the kitchen and the living room have a table and chairs. There are books and cool old postcards to look at. Cristina is a talented and very kind hostess.

I recommend though that you pay more attention than we did about how to use the stove and the television!

Lovely well-equipped bolt hole in Lisbon old town

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment in the heart of Alfama (old town) part of Lisbon. Extremely well-equipped and homely. It doesn't just have what we consider to be the essentials like a comfortable bed, a fridge and a decent shower but luxuries too including a welcoming bottle of wine, lovely views from the French balconies, a music centre, dishwasher, washing machine and every practical/potentially useful item you could think of including a detailed map of the local walkable area, guidebooks, cookery books, cork screw.....even a first aid kit and umbrella! We didn't cook but the kitchen seemed very well equipped and included those items that are irritating to have to buy like washing up liquid, cooking oil and salt. The tap water is perfectly drinkable (as it is throughout Portugal) but there was also a bottle of water chilling in the fridge. Because the apartment has lots of windows, its very well ventilated so no need for noisy air conditioning at night!

Christina the lovely 'landlady' very kindly arranged for a taxi to take us from and to the airport (fixed 15 euros per trip so no problems with getting ripped off by dodgy taxi drivers). She speaks excellent English.

Lots of restaurants in easy walking distance. Our favourite was Os Gazeteiros which have a different set meal every evening. Don't be put off by the lack of choice!

We didn't have or need a car for our 4 night stay. Trips to Sintra (bit expensive) and Cascais (cheap but lovely) were easy train rides away - the stations are an enjoyable 20-25 min walk away.
