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.

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.

Wir waren zum ersten Mal in dieser wunderschönen Stadt. Unsere sympathische, umsichtige, sehr gut Deutsch sprechende Vermieterin hat uns perfekt auf den Aufenthalt vorbereitet. Die Wohnung ist sauber, gemütlich und stilvoll eingerichtet, liegt ideal und der Blick auf den Tejo ist zauberhaft! Für Fado-Liebhaber: Es gibt ein paar sehr gute Lokale in der Nähe.

Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen!

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

The appartement is perfect situated in the old heart of the Alfama, quiet and with a great view over the old part of Lisboa. Tram and taxi are only a few steps to walk, a lot of monuments - and important, a lot of restaurants - are in the neighbourhood.

Perfect is also the organisation of Cristina, the owner. From the very beginning, contacts by email, pick up at the airport and so on until the end of our week.

So there is nothing to propose to make it better ! Thank you , Cristina, to have the possibility to be guest for one week ! Until the next time !

Appartement agréable , spacieux avec une belle vue

  • 5 of 5

Appartement très propre.Très bien placé, proche des différents centres touristiques, pour tout visiter à pied ou avec le tramway jaune mais sans prendre le métro.

Christina est une hôtesse agréable et prévenante,elle s'est chargée de commander le taxi pour le dernier jour.

Tout est très bien organisé, plan pour accéder à l'appartement, photos, conseils pour le taxi car le quartier est compliqué d'accès en voiture. Bref Cristina a pensé à tout pour rendre le séjour facile et agréable.

Les serviettes sont changées à mi séjour ce qui est agréable.

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre gentil appréciation ! Seulement une petit remarque, pour ceux qui la liront: il n'est pas nécessaire de prendre le metro pour visiter le centre ville, mais, si besoin, le metro est à 600 mètres de l'appartement.
