About the property

The Comfort And Freedom Of An Apartment With A Family Connection.

Rental apartments in the heart of Lisbon, by the S. Jorge Castle.

A lovely two centuries old houses in the most typical neighborhood of Lisbon, with all the comfort of modern life.

One-Bedroom apartment fully equipped with free WIFI, satelite TV, fridge, microwave, coffee machine, etc.

The best way to see the city is on foot. But Lisbon has a good transport network that we will teach you how to use :)

There is a parking really close to us, and by the 28 tram line, in Portas do Sol, if you need.

It doesn't get more central than this. There is history in every from the hustle and close to everything!

Beside the Castle, you can walk the narrow streets and patios of Alfama and see the Lisbon Cathedral, all just a few steps away (2 min walk from the apartment).

Let your self go and get lost, it's the best way to know the old part of Lisbon.

Just down the hill, a 5 min walk, you'll arrive in Baixa area, full of shops and people, is part of the experience, a must go. It was all renewed because of the 1755 earthquake and built using one of the first anti-seismic systems in the world.

The famous Feira da Ladra is Lisbon's flea market, and here you can buy just about anything (10 min from us). The best deals are made after 15:00, when the fair dealers are tired and do not want to put everything back in the van. And why not try an original souvenir this time?

The festival of Santo António, on 12 June, is the biggest party of Lisbon! Yes, it's crowded, but lots of fun!

It's a mix between marriages, carnival parades, urban barbecue and a popular party. Unforgettable. And here is the best place to be and live the party as you were a local.

Our hosts can make you a little briefing about Lisbon, including more tricks, questions you might have and suggestions of the best places to visit.

We are also available to help you book restaurants, rent a car or sightseeing tours, in or out of Lisbon. (Sintra, Fátima, Setúbal, etc)

Lisbon maps are available and free.

You willl not want to return to your home again!

Why Sofia Pereira chose Lisbon Region

If you like more than just go on a bus tour, This is the place. Not just because of this great location or price, but because you can engage in the day-by-day city life. This neighborhood is a small village inside a big city. Liked the idea? Come along!

Typical Portuguese building in a Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We found the apartment to be very clean, in an ideal location central to a very exciting City. Alex was very friendly and his advice on local a restaurant was very good. Chapito. A trip in the 28 tram is a must.

Whilst the apartment was small for a family of 4 and it was the hottest time of year also. We would certainly book again for the location alone.

My stay at Casas d'Almedina was just perfect!! Lisbon is a wonderful, amazing city. The apartment was very clean, it is a small building but has everything you might need for your vacations. Sofia was wonderful, always helping and giving us tips and advices about places to see. I loved the fact that the apartment is located just a street down from the Castle, with a beautiful historical neighbourhood, but very quiet as well. We will definitly come back to Casas d'Almedina next time we come to Lisbon!!

Excellent location & sunny

  • 5 of 5

My family of three stayed in this tiny apartment that is located steps away from the Saint Jorge Castle. It was a fun location with easy transportation, great access to restaurants, and close to many of the major tourism sights. The apartment was very clean, sunny, and had a cross breeze which made the whole apartment feel fresh and airy. Sofia provided very helpful transportation information before and during our trip. The apartment is very close to the castle, but can be hard to find because it is on a quiet little street. So be sure to print out the map Sofia suggests before you travel and take it with you. The internet worked well and the little kitchen had everything we needed to cook some breakfasts and dinners. The space was a bit small for us and would probably be better for a couple. We had a hard time finding space for our suitcases and kept tripping over our stuff because there was no storage or extra floor space. The toilet barely fits in the bathroom. The toilet lid (wet from an exuberant flush) did not stay up on its own, but my creative 15 year old devised a tape system to keep the lid up. But still we would choose this place again because the location and price were fantastic. Maybe we'd pack lighter next time to fit better into our favorite apartment in Lisbon.
