Romantic apartment in Alfama with an amazing view over the Tagus River
This romantic apartment, renovated in 2006, is located in the most picturesque quarters in the city – Alfama.
It has a magnificent solar exposition and a incredible view over old town of Lisbon as well as the Tagus river, giving you the chance to …
The appartment is located in Alfama with no traffic noise whatsoever, and still less than 200 m to tram 28 and major bus lines. The flat is small with a rather steep access stairway, but it is well maintained, well equipped and very clean. The owner, Maria, is extremely helpfull and gave good advice on local restaurants and authentic fado. She even picked us up at our hotel in Cascais and brought us to the appartment in her own car.
We enjoyed our stay very much.
We are a mature couple and we came back from Lisbon feeling young again. We thank Maria so much for being such a charming host. We found all the reviews to be accurate and truthful. In fact, they exceeded all the wonderful things said about Maria and the apartment. Maria even came to the apartment at 4:30 in the morning to help us down the stairs and into a taxi for the airport.
We were there for two weeks and loved the little community of the people in the neighborhood. We felt like "locals" in just a few days. We generally took a tram out to see the city, but would just tell the cab driver, "Museu do Fado," and be back to the apartment in a few minutes for less than five euros. And on your walk back to the apartment, be sure to stop at the local bakery and buy some patels from Frederickco. Or you can just call him, "D-Co." What a sweet man!
You are welcome to email us in regards to the apartment if you like. We will be glad to answer any of your questions or concerns.
And finally, the best always to the wonderful people of the Alfama, Lisboa and Portugal!
Obrigado and obrigada!

wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit in der kleinen süßen Wohnung. Man kan alles zu Fuß erreichen und ist mitten im Leben. Die Vermieterin ist shr nett, hilft einem gerne und hat viele Tips was es alles anzusehen gibt...
We stayed for 6 days and enjoyed the apartment. Its location is excellent – in the heart of Alfama. There are a lot of restaurants nearby, as well as many with fado. Evenings fado songs could be heard thru the opened window – it is very romantic! Beautiful views and atmosphere make it we would recommend visiting Lisbon as a beautiful city, and also recommend staying at this apartment! Maria was helpful and attentive. Thank you! Obrigado!
The apartment is lovely and really well equipped - you need to be fit for the stairs! Maria was great and really helpful with our queries, her friend met us from the bus as Maria was called away on business and gave us a mini tour of the area which was appreciated and let us get our bearings. Alfama is great, there is a little bakery just down from the apartment and loads of local restaurants/cafes. Vegetarians fare well at the Pois near the Se- easy walking distance. The apartment has a selection of fado CDs and Maria has left some of her personal recommendations for the best fado locally.
Maria met us upon arrival @ a cafe near the apartment and her excitement for her town and country was infectious. She gave us recommendations on things to do/see and walked w/ us up to the apartment to show us in/around. In the heart of Alfama the apartment was recently remodeled w/ new amenities and was meticulously clean. We woke each morning and peered out the skylight in the 1/2 story upstairs. What a view! Just a short walk from the trolley and you're ready to explore. We spent each sunset sitting on the window sill overlooking the river and the other houses below drinking wine/port and eating fresh bread and goat cheese.
We had a wonderful time in Lisbon and would recommend this apartment to any of our friends!
The apartment is excellent, located in Alfama, surrounded by fado restaurants and offering a pictoresque view of the Tagus. It is clean, neat, well equipped and the owner is an amazingly kind person. The apartment is way nicer than the pictures allow it to presume, those who don't believe this, please check for yourselves:))
It is best starting point to explore the historical center of Lisbon, everything can be found between 5-10 minutes walking distance, starting from the Sé Cathedral, getting lost in the maze of Alfama and culminating with the breathtaking scenic points (the miradouro Santa Luzia can be seen from the window of the apartment).
Would recommend it to anybody, hope to come back soon.
We are absolutely thinking the same way like the other residents! Excellent view, good facilities in small space and no sound of traffic. And Maria is a very friendly and fair person. We recommend this for Lisboa lovers who are seeking the real spirit of Lisboa.

Lovely 2 bedroom’ duplex apartment located in the ancient quarter of Santo Estevão in Alfama, , at the heart of the historical centre of Lisbon. Situated near the Castle of S. Jorge, the Monastery of São Vicente de Fora and the ancient flea Market "Feira da Ladra" and next to the mythical tramway nº28.
It’s very easy to go on foot to the ancient neighborhoods of Mouraria, Baixa, Chiado or even Bairro Alto, with their charming shops of traditional commerce.
Close to the apartment there’s an undergound station (Santa Apolónia), a lot of buses and the train (Cais do Sodré), which allows you to visit the beaches of Cascais and there’s also the train (Rossio) which takes you to Sintra.
With a simple and comfortable decoration, the apartment is located in one of the oldest Lisbon neighborhoods, great to visit Lisbon and feel its origins.
