About the Property
Apartment, 1 Bedroom + 1 Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
(This apartment is in the same house as my other Listing #241764 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 seating looking out on the river Tejo. 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 10PM, 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 sleeps total 4 people. Has excellent Wi-Fi. It has a separate bedroom with a double bed, ( for 2 people) a sunny living room with a double sofa bed, and dining table. A complete kitchen with coffee makers, gas stove, oven, microwave, fridge, toaster, clothes washing machine, electric kettle. The apt. is equipped with cable TV (English + French, CNN, BBC, Portuguese and other languages and many movie channels), stereo, radio, iPod doc. 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. I have a very responsible manager who is there to help if there are any problems or questions.

Fado, the original Portuguese Blues type music, is found especially in the Alfama district. You can go to Fado dinner clubs, or discover little bars with spontaneous Fado singers.
Year Purchased: 2007
Why the Owner Chose São Vicente de Fora, Lisbon, Portugal:
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 # 28 Electrico (tram) which is one 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.
