Overview

About the property

The comfortable, newly furnished and renovated 3-room-apartment is situated in the heart of the old town on the 2nd and 3rd floor of a white typical Alfama-house which was build more than 100 years ago. All our pictures are originally taken at the apartment.

The holiday apartment is one of the only in the old city center which offers an unspoilt view over the river. You will enjoy the special location offside any street. No noise by cars, motorcycles or tram will disturb your dreams.

Every building in this area is a listed building under monument protection. You reach the flat by several narrow alleys, passing some fishmonger stores in small houses, soccer playing children and old people on stone benches. A lot of buildings are already renovated, other are still in this phase, but this does not affect Alfama in its uniqueness. Restaurants, shops, pharmacy, cleaning and video stores are nearby and the city centre of Lisbon is at walking distance (10 minutes) away.

Further information: The apartment is allocated over 2 levels with open inner stairs. The bedroom is situated in the upper part and has a completely glassed oriel which offers a stunning view over river Tagus. Here you can enjoy your wine in the evening sometimes even listening some fado-music in the background. And here you can let your gaze wander over the nearby church of St. Miguel to the Tejo and the 17.2 km long bridge “Vasco da Gama” and the nature protection area on the other side of the river.

The holiday apartment is one of the only in the old city center which offers an unspoilt view over the river. You will enjoy the special location offside any street. No noise by cars, motorcycles or tram will disturb your dreams. Please be aware that during the first 2 weeks of June local festivals will take place in the area. During these days there will be many people and noise in Alfama, also at night.

For 'star watchers' we have a telescope available.

Comfortable apartment in the heart of Afalma.

  • 5 of 5

Before our arrival, the owners were easily contactable and provided us with clear instructions to a rendezvous with their representative. The flat is comfortable and well equipped with sea views over the rooftops. Located in the heart of Alfama, an attractive and vibrant neighbourhood with transport links close by. It’s hilly, but then so is much of Lisbon. I highly recommend this apartment and would happily return myself.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a local place to stay from where we could walk and poke around. The place was wonderful, and everything just right and as promised.

Not for the faint of stairs

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful property with an amazing view but challenging to access for anyone not used to climbing steep stairs every day (but then again anyone like that would struggle all throughout Alfama). Also be aware that everything in the flat is German, not a problem as my partner and I are both fluent but was a bit challenging for the American couple with us.

Other wise it was perfectly set up for us with binoculars for watching over the amazing view, spices and oils in the kitchen and even board games!

Fantastic apartment in the centre of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a great stay in this beautiful apartment, right in the centre of the old town in Lisbon.

It's exactly as described on the advert, clean and well maintained, with all facilities, a good amount of space and a fantastic view over the river from the upper room!

The central location is perfect for exploring the whole of the city.

Overall a great experience and would have no hesitation in returning!

Très bel appartement, très typique, au cœur de l'Alfama

  • 5 of 5

Je vous recommande cet appartement en duplex très fonctionnel, très bien situé au cœur de l'Alfama, du Tramway, des restaurants dans le Baixa. Appartement au calme. Nous y avons passé 4 nuits début avril 2017. Très propre, bien entretenu et bien équipé. Pour 4 personnes, cet appartement en duplex était une excellente adresse.

Lisbon is often described as the city of superlatives. On the famous viewpoints, the Miradouros, you experience incredible moments. You are always confronted with the extremes of old and new. Palaces decorated with the famous azlejos (blue tiles), iron elevators in the inner city, very interesting old graveyards are just as worth seeing as the modern scene in discos and bars at the docks and the large shopping malls. Cultural events of high quality will enthuse you as well as the small bakeries with the typical Portuguese pastries. The distance to the beaches and to the sport facilities are about 30 minutes by car. If you decide to rent a car you can leave it at the car park of Santa Apolonia Station - a few minutes of walking distance - at a price of about € 8 per day. Because of the very central location of our flat we recommend to use the favourable public transports.
