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.

Really nice apartment excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The Alfama neighborhood is so unique and this apartment is right in the heart of it. Fado clubs around every corner and the 28 tram just up the steps. We will always cherish our time here. Cristina was so friendly and helpful too. Highly recommended!

This was our first trip to Europe, and our first time to use VRBO! It was a great experience! The property was in the midst of Alfama, lots of little restaurants, Fado music, and history! The property itself was very clean and well equipped with anything a traveller could want to make it a home away from home. Cristina is just a wonderful person! She was helpful with information, and just genuinely cares for her tenants. Thank you Cristina! Should we ever return...this is where we'll want to stay.

Gelungener Städtetripp

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist ein perfekter Standort in der Altstadt.Sie ist zentral,verkehrsgünstig und trotzdem ruhig gelegen.Der ebenerdige Zugang läßt den vorhandenen Ausblick auf Fluß und die Dächer von Amalfa nicht vermuten,aber die Hanglage macht es möglich.Die Wohnung ist für 2 Personen ideal aber läßt auch mehrere Bewohner

genügend Freiraum.Sie entspricht völlig den Bildern und Beschreibung der Homepage und ist gepflegt und liebevoll eingerichtet.Wir haben darin 8 schöne und erlebnisreiche Tage verbracht.Der Highlight der Wohnung ist die Vermieterin Christina,die sehr nett,kompetent und hilfsbereit ein gutes Deutsch spricht und alles perfekt organisiert hat.

Hierfür vielen Dank. Wir werden diese Kombination gerne weiterempfehlen! Lissabon und diese Wohnung ist für Neugierige eine

Reise wert.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying in this bright, airy place. It was warm, but breezes off the river meant that we never used the fans supplied. Very convenient for walking and Cristina very helpful.

Great place to stay right in the middle of Alfama.

  • 5 of 5

It is the middle of Alfama walking distance to groceries, bakery, bus and tram stations. Christina was a wonderful help with a map of the area and information about nearby beaches.
