Lisbon apartment description

Comfortable, sunny apartment rental apartment in the heart of Alfama, the oldest most picturesque neighborhoods in the center of Lisbon. Owned by a New York City Artist. It is on the third floor of an 18th century typical Alfama house with lots of sun in the day and cool for sleeping in the night in summer. Sleeps three adults, there is also a baby crib. Newly renovated with old Portuguese style. A small balcony looks out on the tiny streets of this old neighborhood.
This is a 100% Non-Smoking apartment.
(This apartment is in the same house as my other Listing #250892 and can be rented together if you are 2 couples or two families traveling together. They are completely separate, each with same amenities.)

It is only a 5 minutes to walk to the Castelo Sao Jorge and 3 minute walk to the famous Feira da Ladra (flea market), and a 3 minute walk to the River Tejo, with restaurants with terraces on the river. And, you can travel around Lisbon on the delightful, picturesque electric tram # 28 which is a 1 minute walk from the apartment. It is a 5 minute walk to the new Metro Station in Sta. Apolonia Train Station. (Lisbon's main terminal) In the station is a Pingo Doce supermarket open until 11PM, very convenient!

The neighborhood is filled with many authentic Fado houses, cafes and restaurants. Alfama is the oldest part of the city with tiny streets to discover.

The apartment has a separate bedroom with a double bed, ( for 2 people) a sunny living room with a sofa bed (for one person), and dining table. A complete kitchen with gas stove, microwave, fridge, toaster, washing machine. The apt. is equipped with cable TV (English + French, CNN, BBC, Portuguese and other languages), stereo, radio, iPod doc. Excellent, fast Wi-Fi. A full bathroom with shower. Hair dryer.
From the windows you have a nice view over the small square Largo de Santo Estevão In winter time the apartments are heated with electric heaters and there are fans for summer cooling. If I am not in Lisbon I have a very responsible manager who is there to help if there are any problems or questions.
Includes cleaning, towels and sheets. Minimum of 3 nights preferred.
Price includes everything, there are NO EXTRA CHARGES.

Check in after 12 noon / Check out 11 AM
If you are arriving earlier, you can still go to the apt., leave your bags, check in, and then go out so the cleaner can come. The apt. will be cleaned and prepared by 3PM.

                                  The Alfama neighborhood is famous for it's special architecture and atmosphere, labyrinth of old streets, good restaurants and authentic Fado Music houses. Even being a 10 minute walk to the center of Lisbon, you enjoy feeling like you are living in a medieval town. We are a 3 minute walk to the famous flea market and lovely churches, musems, shopping, bars and great little restaurants. The Miradoro in Graça - a 5 minute walk, you can have a beautiful view over the city while enjoying a wine or coffee. And very important, English is now spoken widely in Lisbon in almost every shop and restaurant.


                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 2006

                                  About the owner: I am a woman artist. I live in New York and Lisbon.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Lisbon:
                                  Lisbon is a very charming old world city, not on the regular tourist trail. It has lots of outdoor cafes on every street. The art, music and food of Portugal is found in abundance in Lisbon, the capital. I chose the Alfama neighborhood because of it's ancient feel, tiny streets with very few cars, people who have lived there for many generations keeping their old traditions. You are in the city and at the same time in a tiny village with an atmosphere of another time. I am a painter and find the city beautiful and inspiring.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                                  The apartment is a 3 minute walk to the River Tejo, the large river that runs through Lisbon to the Atlantic. It is a short trip to Estoril beaches by public transport. The famous TRAM #28 which is 1 minute walk from the door, takes you on an enchanting ride through the tiny streets and hills across Lisbon. You don't need a car in Lisbon, public transport and taxis are very abundant and not expensive. Lisbon is a 'secret' city that lives on it's own time. Portuguese people revere their quality of life, which I have found emphasizes eating good fresh food (excellent fish) and drinking the wines of the country, which is another wonderful discovery.
