Wonderful apartment great stay

  • 5 of 5

Prime location with a nice terrace and fabulous bathrooms! Marie had arranged for a great driver who got us at airport and directly there plus ther was wine on our arrival which was perfect. The 4 of us had a great time walkingq to all the little shops and restaurants. Marie was a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely go back

Lovely home but challenging area

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was well equipped and comfortable however those renting should be aware that the Alfama district is very difficult to access by car as normally it is only for residents and there are metal barriers that raise and lower. It is very hilly and the nearest parking garage is several blocks away and 20 € per day. Access to our apt was 3 very steep flights of stairs so those with mobility issues would find it challenging. The apt was advertised with a washer and drier but came only equipped with a washer and np drying rack or closeline. Also the area was very noisy at night 3 out of 4 night as the apt backed onto a street of restaurants and bars so bring ear plugs. I spite of the challenges the area was charming

perfect Lisbon experience

  • 5 of 5

We cannot imagine having stayed anyplace else during our Lisbon vacation. The Alfama was by far our favorite neighborhood, and especially because most of the rest of the city was swamped with tourists in July. This apartment is in a part of The Alfama that isn't accessible for most taxis and Ubers, which makes it both a bit inconvenient and wonderfully out of the way of traffic and noise. We found the trade-off worth it. It helped a lot that Maria arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport who had access to the street.

The apartment itself is as beautiful as it is comfortable. Very historic, full of character, well-stocked with everything necessary. Maria was out of town during our visit, so a charming neighbor (Antonio) let us in. And even though she was on vacation, Maria managed to get a broken shower fixed within just a few hours of hearing about it.

We loved everything about our stay here.

Great getaway in Alfama

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for five nights in May with another couple and it was a great apartment to rent. Especially during the Champions soccer final - away from the crowds at the end of the day. The son of the owner picked us up at the airport - which was very helpful. The apartment came with wine, beer, water, fruit and honey which was a pleasant surprise. You just mark down what you eat and drink and leave cash at the end of your stay. Delicious honey! The washing machine was great! The owners leave a manual about the area with restaurant and food shopping recommendations. On the first night we went across the street for Fado and dinner - such a great experience. To get around, no need to rely on Tram 28, just walk to the right when leaving the apartment and head down the hill to the Apolonia station and take the metro anywhere. Get a pass for the number of days you are in town. The pass includes the tram and all buses too. The owners were great, dealt with a clogged shower drain quickly. If you have mobility issues, you may struggle with the Alfama area, and the stairs to the apartment, but otherwise a great deal for a lovely apartment. So nice to have a little terrace too.

Alfama Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A wonderfully modern , clean, and well equipped apartment in the heart of the Alfama District. Old world charm with narrow cobblestoned streets with lots of nearby sights. Convenient small markets, restaurants, and easy walking to public transportation. For those with limited mobility, the area is quite hilly and there are two flights of stairs to the apartment. Comes complete with TV including English language stations and free internet access, fully equipped kitchen with a full range of appliances, and a washing machine. Accommodated two couples comfortably with very nice separate en suite bathrooms.

Owner was most helpful both in helping with arrangements as well as advice on local transportation restaurants and sights.

Highly recommended.

beau séjour

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé 5 jours très agréables, au mois de novembre le soleil était présent avec 20 degrés; nous avons pu prendre nos petits déjeuners sur la mignonne petite terrasse. Le gite est magnifique et bien situé, Alfama est très joli .

Nous avons apprécié le chauffeur à notre arrivé à l'aéroport, très sympathique , cool pour arriver à l'appartement.

Bien reçu par Antonio;

nous recommandons cet appartement pleins de charmes
