Un vrai coup de cœur.

Review Submitted: 2019-11-26 22:30
Tout est parfait autant la situation de l'appartement, que l'appartement lui-même. Paulho est à l'écoute et prend le temps de venir nous chercher à l'aéroport, il nous explique le quartier et est de très bon conseil. C'est parfait et l'appartement est très bien situé. Un vrai coup de cœur.

Very nice apartment in a great location

Review Submitted: 2019-11-12 22:33
Paulo is a fantastic host and made me feel welcome from the minute I booked. He even picked me up from the airport, despite having just returned from a trip 2 hours before me. He gave me a short tour of the neighborhood and explained everything I needed to know.
The place itself is very nice and in a great location. It was easy to explore the city from there and only a short walk to the Metro. The listing is exactly as described, with great views, a well equipped kitchen, and plenty of space for 2 people.

Paolo is an amazing host who goes above and beyond to accommodate guests of the flat!
He kept in communication with us even with a lot of problems that came up in our travel plans, picked us up from the train, and showed us around the neighborhood before taking us to the apartment. He gave us a great recommendation for food on our first day - one of our favorite meals we had in Lisbon.
Oh, and the view is STUNNING! We will certainly be back.

Review Submitted: 2019-09-29 21:48
Paulo's apartment is cute and cozy and very well located in the Alfama district, everything is at walking distance, yet not noisy at night.
The attention by Paulo was outstanding, the communication was swift and responsive and we very much appreciated being picked up from the airport. A real plus were also all the first-hand local tips (we loved A Muralha - great local food at very affordable prices).
All in all, we had a great stay in Lisboa, definitely a recommendation and we would always come back to stay at Paulo's apartment - many thanks Paulo!

We received a welcome as warm as the sunny day we arrived on

Review Submitted: 2019-09-27 15:05
This apartment is in a great location for accessing Lisbon, particularly if you enjoy walking.
We were met at the airport by Paulo. We received a welcome as warm as the sunny day we arrived on. Paulo gave us great tips about the area, its restaurants and the city including how to get travel cards for transport etc. He kindly helped with our luggage as the stairs up to the apartment are quite steep . He was only a text away if we needed anything.
The property has lovely views, is bright and airy really clean and comfortable. It was a perfect base for us to explore Lisbon. All the major train stations are within walking distance. A tip if you plan to eat in occasionally, is to use the small supermarket located in the Santa Apolonia train station just short walk away. Well stocked with a great choice of fresh produce.

Paulo is really a super host! He picked us up from the airport, gave us a little tour through the neighbourhood (helped a lot so we could recognize some points because it can be a maze in lisbon with all the little streets and stairs haha) and he took our suitcase all the way up!
The apartment is lovely, exactly like in the pictures and the view is AMAZING! Paulo was also very helpful during the stay and even brought us a gift because my husband and I are just married ❤️. Definitly recommend this place!!

Loved this quirky little spot.

Review Submitted: 2019-08-02 16:37
Loved this quirky little spot. The apartment has amazing views — once you're up the narrow wooden stairs it's like being the crow's nest of a ship. It's also on one of Alfama's cute, steep, traffic free streets so it's very quiet and surrounded by a friendly community of local people, a quick walk to the flea market and all the bars and fado spots.
Paulo made everything incredibly easy for me by picking me up from the airport in the morning, storing my bags, taking me on a mini-tour of Lisbon and checking in regularly. Would definitely stay again.

We were so pleased with Paulo’s kindness, picking us up from the airport late at night, giving us a tour of the surrounding area and leaving us with a bottle of wine.

Very clean, beautiful view and is in the perfect location for exploring Lisbon

Review Submitted: 2019-07-20 0:42
We were met off the plane by Paolo who drive us into Alfama, gave us a tour of the area and pointed out his favourite restaurants and cafes to get food at. The whole trip Paolo was on hand to answer any questions that we had, checking in to make sure we were ok and coming in to fix the hot water when the boiler was low one day. Overall the flat is very clean, has a beautiful view over looking the water and is in the perfect location for exploring Lisbon from. My only slight complaint is that after 3 days of taking showers, the shower room did start to small of damp, however this was not a problem and didn’t hinder our experience of the place at all. I would definitely recommend Paolo’s place to friends and family visiting Lisbon!

Très sympathique appartement au cœur de l’Alfama à Lisbonne.

Review Submitted: 2019-07-01 22:40
Très sympathique appartement au cœur de l’Alfama à Lisbonne. Donne sur une petite place très calme. Coin résidentiel, sans bruits de jour comme de nuit. L’appartement est situé à 10min à pied d’une station de métro et de la gare qui mène à l’aéroport.
Paulo est venu nous chercher à l’aéroport et nous a fait faire un petit tour du quartier en voiture pour nous donner quelques repère, puis il nous a conduit à l’appartement. Il nous a également offert une bouteille de vin du coin! Pour le retour à l’aéroport, nous avons pris le métro.
L’appartement est parfait pour un couple, tout le confort y est, la vue sur le Tage en prime. Les escaliers pour monter à l’appartement sont un peu raides. Mais ça vaut le coup d’être au 3ème et dernier étage de ce petit immeuble ancien: la vue sur le Tage et les toits de l’alfama est magnifique et sans vis-à-vis. Je recommande ce logement sur Lisbonne!

This is a unique apartment for two in Alfama with a fantastic view of the river. Paulo was a great host, picked us up at the airport and provided lots of information ahead of our stay on choices of tourist sites. We were aware of the stairs so were prepared with our luggage. The apartment had everything needed and a welcome bottle of wine was a nice touch. We very much enjoyed our first visit to Lisbon!

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit in Lissabon!

Review Submitted: 2019-05-21 0:13
Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit in Lissabon! Das Apartment ist zwar klein, hat aber viel Charme und Seele - und alles was es braucht. Die Lage ist prima, mitten im Leben aber dabei sehr ruhig. Der Ausblick ist phantastisch und man kann nachts prima mit offenen Fenstern schlafen. Die Abstimmung mit Paulo lief super und absolut reibungslos. Die Treppenstufen hoch ins Apartment sind tatsächlich sehr schmal und die Treppe recht steil - aber das ist der Konstruktion der schönen alten Alfama Häuser geschuldet.
Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Wake up in Paulo's apartment and look at the Tejo through the rooftops of Alfama is already a unique reason to choose this place. Paulo is very kind, helpful and available. The apartment is in a very quite part of Alfama, very comfortable, sunny and with a wonderful view. Very well located to walk around in Alfama and close to the metro and trams to visit the city. For sure a good choice to enjoy Lisbon!!

What a lovely apartment!

Review Submitted: 2019-03-31 16:43
We were received by Paulo who gave us a thorough explanation of the surroundings, as well as what to see and where to eat. Paulo was very kind and helpful and always available when needed.
The apartment was truly a fantastic good surprise!! It's located on the last floor of a small building with an amazing view of the river and Lisbon rooftops, right in the middle of one of Lisbon’s typical neighborhoods (Alfama). It’s close to grocery shops, restaurants, bars, 5 min walk to the river, but yet in a quiet street, so while at the apartment you do not hear any noise. The area was safe and we had no issues in strolling around day or night.
It’s a lovely apartment (spotless clean) perfect for 2 persons with a full equipped kitchen (though we did not cook much), a nice living room with a lot of light. One of our favorite spots in the apartment was the dining table close by one of the window’s where we had breakfast while enjoying the boats passing by the river Tagus and the sunlight coming in.
It was a marvelous experience, and for sure we will return soon to this location!!! Thank you Paulo and Luis for the hospitality!

Paulo, por otra parte, es una persona muy disponible, incluso ha venido a recogernos al Aeropuerto de Lisboa. Es una persona atenta y amable, que cuida los detalles y que está presente si se le necesita para cualquier duda. Además, es un muy buen anfitrión a la hora de explicar Lisboa y Alfama, también de cara a qué visitar y dónde comer. Un anfitrión con mayúsculas que nos ha hecho de Lisboa una experiencia inolvidable.

Accueil exceptionnel, localisation dans le quartier le plus authentique et la vue magnifique sur le Tage.

Review Submitted: 2018-08-20 23:00
Nous avons passé 5 jours à Lisbonne en août 2018. Les points positifs de cet appartement sont : - L'accueil exceptionnel de Paulo : attentionné, disponible à tout moment, parle bien français et nous a donné des conseils de visites pour notre séjour. -La localisation dans le quartier de l'Alfama qui est le quartier le plus authentique et celui que nous avons préféré. Se trouvent de nombreux restaurants et petites boutiques proches de l'appartement. 10-15 min pied pour arriver au centre de Lisbonne, station de bus et métro à quelques minutes. -La vue sur le Tage qui est magnifique. -L’appartement est petit mais bien agencé, fonctionnel, bien décoré, on s'y sent bien. Point relativement négatif: -les escaliers raides et étroits pour accéder à l'appartement mais c'est tout à fait supportable (même pour des gens pas très sportifs comme nous).

It was my first experience with Airbnb. I'm an Airbnb fan now :-). Paulo is an amazing host. We got so many tips on how to spend our holiday in Lisbon already before our staying and also during the staying from him. Communication with him was also great. All the time I felt his support. I was very pleased with the free pickup offer at the airport. I really recommend this host and flat in a charming location.

Paulo is a stellar host and we would definitely come back.

Review Submitted: 2018-07-04 23:46
We had a WONDERFUL time staying in the Alfama neighborhood at Paulo's place.
From the moment we booked the reservation online, Paulo was super responsive over email, sending a ton of recommendations and advice for our stay. Once we arrived, Paulo continued to go above and beyond, picking us up at the airport, showing us around the neighborhood, and making sure we were settled at the apartment. We communicated by text over WhatsApp while we were there and he proactively checked in and was super responsive when we reached out.
The apartment is cozy and up steep steps, but perfect for a young couple. It has everything you need, including the gorgeous views exhibited in the posting photos. It is super walkable to everything, from the Alfama itself to city center and bus and tram lines.
Paulo's recommendations for sites to see and places to eat were excellent--we had a wonderful brunch at a place he recommended and were very glad we did a day trip to Sintra per his recommendation. He also told us where to watch the World Cup on the big screen in the main plaza, which was an exciting and unique event.
Paulo is a stellar host and we would definitely come back to Lisbon and stay at one of his places again.

Mooi appartement op een geweldige lokatie in Alfama

Review Submitted: 2018-06-27 23:41
Mooi appartement op een geweldige lokatie in Alfama. Dichtbij mooie bezienswaardigheden op loopafstand maar ook dichtbij de metro/treinstation Santa Apolonia waarmee je de hele stad gemakkelijk kunt bereiken. Het appartement is compleet, schoon en comfortabel met een prachtig uitzicht. Let wel dat je trappen op moet lopen om er te komen!
Paolo is een fantastische host die er alles aan doet om je een prettig verblijf te laten hebben. Het ophalen van het station, de persoonlijke tips en het tussentijds checken of alles goed was voelde heel prettig en welkom!
Zeker een aanrader, ik zou weer deze accommodatie boeken!

We will always book this jewel again

Review Submitted: 2018-05-28 9:35
Lisbon is a great destination for a vacation and we were absolutely happy to have stayed in Alfama, as this district is cozy and beautiful but still not to crowded or loud. We felt like at home at Paulo's apartment and loved the view. You find everything you need to prepare food in the kitchen. The shower looks small but is super comfy! All in all we will always book this jewel again.
PS: Leave your high-heels at home and rather pack some sporty shoes as Lisbon is full of hills to climb :)

Man kann sich nichts besseres wünschen, Paulo als Gastgeber zu haben. Er ist sehr aufmerksam, bereits vor Antritt der Reise gibt er interessante Tipps für die Erkundung von Lissabon. Besonders schön ist, dass Paulo uns vom Flughafen abgeholt hat und gegen ein kleines Entgelt auf Wunsch auch wieder zum Flughafen gebracht hat.
Die Ferienwohnung ist nett eingerichtet, die Lage ist phantastisch, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind ganz in der Nähe, auch jede Menge Kneipen, man ereicht alles sehr schnell, man ist mitten im Geschehen, ganz toll, die Aussicht von der Ferienwohnung über die Dächer auf den Rio Tejo ist einzigartig und bemerkenswert.

Une valeur sûre pour un séjour réussi

Review Submitted: 2018-05-04 0:20
Le point fort de ce logement est son emplacement, dans le quartier le plus typique de lisbonne, proche de la gare, station métro, superette ( à la gare).Il est aussi très calme, sur une placette en haut d'une volée de marches. La vue exeptionnelle sur le tage, la bonne literie, la déco très cosy en font une valeur sûre pour un séjour réussi.
L'acceuil de Paulo qui n'est pas avare de conseils sur sa ville, est très appréciable.
L'accès à l'appartement peut surprendre, un escalier étroit et très raide, mais ça ne nous a pas posé de problème, vu la topographie de la ville ce genre d'escalier doit être très courant.

Review Submitted: 2018-04-21 23:27
We had a wonderful time at Paulos apartment. The view is fantastic and we had everything we needed: a comfy bed, a coffeemaker and a well-equipped kitchen.

Sure, you have to climb some steep stairs to get there but it is definitely worth it. The bathroom is small but nice and also here you find everything you need: hairdryer, smooth towels and a great shower.

The surrounding is very charming: we endlessly walked through the small streets, climbing stairs and found a new highlight around every corner: small restaurants and "miradouros" overlooking the city.

If we will come to Lissabon again one day we would definitely ask for this place.

Going to a new place for the first time and without knowing where to stay and go, we rely mostly on the host feedback and willingness to help.
Paulo is the best host my wife and I have experienced. He is very clear and quick in his communications, he is also very friendly, honest and with a willing to help at any time attitude. All of his tips to go places were great.
We stayed in his apartment in Alfama, which was perfectly located in a residential area. The apartment has everything we needed: a good bed, good kitchen with all you need to cook, and a good view of the river. The apartment is clean and relatively new. It is a bit small and ideal for a couple.
If going to Lisbon, I highly recommend Paul apartment in Alfama and his great customer service!

Paulo's apartment was a great place to stay in Lisbon and he is a super host.
The old Alfama area is interesting to explore and the apartment is also close to the train and metro station so you can easily explore the rest of the city. The apartment is decorated nicely and kept very clean. If you have difficulty doing 3 flights of narrow stairs or climbing steep hills, however, you should probably stay elsewhere

Review Submitted: 2017-11-17 23:26
Nous avons passé 4 jours à Lisbonne dans l'appartement de Paulo dans le vieux quartier d'Alfama. L'appartement est très bien situé, proche du métro, épicerie et restaurant. La vue est "magnifique" sur le Tage, le soleil et les toits. L'appartement est fonctionnel propre et charmant. Il ne manque rien. Juste l'escalier est raide mais on s'y habitue très très vite. Pour nous le quartier Alfama est le plus authentique. Nous avons adoré. Et surtout l'appartement est très très calme. On entend aucun bruit pour des nuits reposantes. Lisbonne est une très belle ville et Paulo par sa grande disponibilité nous conseille et nous donne des astuces de visite etc. Dans l'appartement il y a également tout un tas de brochures, cartes etc pour rendre la visite de Lisbonne plus facile. Nous conseillons cette appartement à tous (sauf si vous avez des problèmes pour monter un escalier raide).

Encore une grand MERCI à Paulo d'avoir rendu notre séjour inoubliable!

Stayed in this very cozy and neat apartment for 5 nights in July 2017. The location was excellent, in a quiet area of Alfama but still close to everything. The apartment was just like in the photos, and there was a wonderful view to the river. To be noted that the staircase to the flat is very steep, so not suitable for anyone with mobility problems. I warmly recommend for couples wanting to spend a romatic time in Lisbon.

Paulo is an excellent host, very helpful and caring - could not ask for better.

Paulo's apartment in Alfama is cozy, clean, full of character with amazing view of the ocean. The apartment is located in the heart of Alfama, everything you need is easily accessible.
Paulo came to pick us up at the airport and gave us a small tour of the vicinity. He also made a couple of recommendations on the restaurants and wine bars, we followed his advices and the places he recommended really rock! Paulo helped me carrying my suitcase all the way up to the third floor - on those narrow, steep stairs, a huge help! We will definitely stay at Paulo's place again!

A brilliant break in Lisbon!

This is the second time that we have stayed in Lisbon and the second of Paulo's apartments that we have rented. It was fab! The views across the red roof tiles to the beautiful river were amazing. We could watch the cruise liners come and go and at night see the twinkling lights of the towns across the estuary. As before, Paulo is a great host - he collected us from the station where we arrived and escorted us to the apartment which is compact but has everything you could need. He is a very friendly helpful guy and arranged for us to have a taxi back to the airport at the end of our stay as he was actually away on holiday himself then. This is a great base for a holiday in a lively city with wonderful views - go there and see for yourself and meet Paulo!

Our visit to Lisbon was divided in two phases, in each we were Paulo’s guests. Both apartments were small sweet, impeccably clean and well equipped. Both were in parts of the old city (Bica and the Alfama), giving us walks, shopping and good places to eat. Paulo's enthusiasm, love of his city and knowledge of its culture really heightened our experience. Paulo’s special places became our special places. If you are lucky enough to stay with Paulo, you will never forget it! We love you Paulo!

Notre rencontre a l'aeroport ou Paulo nous attendait a l'heure, avec un sourire eclatant? Le trajet jusqu'a la "maison" et les explications en français (quelle joie!) pour comprendre un peu Lisbonne; ses conseils avant le depart pour ne pas rater des lieux qui ne sont pas forcement indiques dans les guides touristiques et, evidemment, l'appartement en haut d'un escalier tres raide (mais on s'y habitue assez vite). Et la vue une fois en haut, par dessus les toits, vers le Tage... une beaute ! L'appartement est ideal pour deux personnes, charmant, avec tout le necessaire a la cuisine, salle de bain, sejour et "chambre a coucher".

On trouve tout ce qu'il faut a proximite : petits commerces, restaurants (excellent raport qualite/prix), la gare, le metro, bus etc...Pour visiter Lisbonne il faut de bonnes jambes, mais ca vaut la peine et le quartier (Alfama) et vraiement le plus pitoresque (a notre avis).

Avec encore un grand merci a Paulo pour tout,

We loved our three day's in Paulo's flat! A real taste of "old Lisbon" in the heart of the Alfama, but with every modern convenience you need to make yourselves at home. So conveniently located near the train/subway station, and with lots of small mercados, wine bars, snack shops and restaurants within an easy walk. The stairway is a challenge, but just part of the whole fun experience.

Paulo is the perfect host- eager to please and bursting with enthusiasm about the city he loves. The ride from the airport was fun and informative, and sure beat a cab! Thanks, Paulo, for a marvelous stay!

Lovely Alfama

Review Submitted: 2016-12-15 22:55
Had a wonderful time in Lisbon staying in this cosy apartment overlooking Alfama and the Tagus river for 10 days. Apartment came with everything you could need and Paulo was a great host. The views from the apartment were so wonderful that staying in on a rainy day was a treat.....a bottle of wine, a good book....

This location was a perfect jumping off point for exploring the rest of the city either on foot or with the Santa Apolonia train/metro station right down the street. Made it easy to take day trips to Porto and Sintra. Granted, the steps to the apartment were long and steep but the apartment had such spectacular views, it made the effort worthwhile. Plus, those extra calories burned climbing the steps just means you can eat more pasteis de nata, right? I had a lovely time here and several great conversations with Paulo, who was part of what made the visit so special. This was my second of what I hope will be many trips back to Lisbon which is a place I have fallen in love with. I would definitely stay here again.

Great apartment in romantic Alfama

Review Submitted: 2016-10-26 22:47
Lisbon is a must to visit, and this very charming apartment is a super place to stay. Alfama is the most romantic part of the city. The apartment has a beautiful view over the house roofs and the river. It's located at a very quiet place, but just a few steps from vibrant restaurants, cafes, bars and small stores. The apartment is clean and newly renovated and has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Paulo is the best host I met during three weeks of extensive traveling around Portugal, picking me up at the airport at no extra cost, sharing his knowledge about the city, checking during the stay that everything was all right. I warmly recommend Paulo and his apartment to anyone going to this wonderful city.

Stay Here!

Review Submitted: 2016-10-06 17:03
My wife and I stayed at Paulo's apartment in the Alfama this past September for four days. What a tremendous introduction to Lisboa! Paulo kindly picked us up at the airport and drove us to the apartment, providing a useful and humorous travelogue along the way. Warning, there are many (often very steep) steps up to the apartment. But given the location in this ancient city this should not be a surprise. Nevertheless if you are elderly and have heavy luggage, you might want to re-think this. The apartment was exactly as described -- yes, small, but comfortable. Everything worked, i.e. appliances, shower, etc. and we lacked for nothing.
Best feature -- the view!!! Each morning we would look out over the clay tiled roof-tops of Alfama towards the River Tejo as the ships came and went. This recently reno-ed studio in the heart of the Alfama was definitely a "pinch-me"place to stay.

The description of Paulo's place is so true. My wife and I spent 4 nights in this modern but rustic apartment and we loved the location, the view and the special attention received by Paulo. Our morning coffee looking over rooftops at the river was great. Paolo was kind enough to pick us up at the airport and give us a quick tour of the key places on our route to the apartment. We were close enough to restaurants and shops and within a 15 minute walk to the lively city centre. There are many hills, steps and steep roads all over Lisbon which we thoroughly enjoyed. So many "wow" moments in this city. We would stay at Paulo's place again for sure. Thank you.

C'est ça : Cozy Historical Alfama with Best View

Review Submitted: 2016-08-09 23:22
3 appartements, 3 quartiers différents ... pour un super séjour de 15 jours à Lisbonne. C'est une très bonne façon de découvrir la ville sous des angles différents ! Et c'est ce que nous a proposé Paulo, notre très sympathique hôte, qui parle impeccablement français et qui nous a fourni beaucoup d'informations et de conseils sur la ville avant notre voyage.

Une deuxième partie de notre séjour s'est déroulée dans le typique quartier d'Alfama et dans ce joli petit appartement avec vue sur les toits et sur le Tage. Un vrai bonheur.
Petit, mignon, bien rénové et parfaitement aménagé, ce charmant appartement, conforme à la présentation, est au troisième étage (avec un escalier bien raide) d'un petit immeuble situé près d'une placette très paisible et d'une jolie ruelle en escaliers comme il y en a tant dans ce quartier. Merci à notre hôte Paulo de nous avoir accompagnées au plus près en voiture ! Idéal pour arpenter le dédale des rues d'Alfama : monter, descendre, se perdre dans le labyrinthe des ruelles étroites, croiser le tram, découvrir une partie des monuments historiques de la ville ( cathédrale Sé, château Saint Georges) essayer les multiples petits restos du coin, écouter du fado le soir, se reposer aux miradorou de Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen ou de Santa Luzia après avoir gravi les collines sinueuses d'Alfama par 30 degrés et s'émerveiller devant les vues imprenables....

Un joli souvenir ! Et un accueil toujours parfait et prévenant de Paulo.

Got Me Out of Bed in the Morning

Review Submitted: 2016-06-15 15:34
After wonderful evenings of dinner, Fado and exploring Lisbon, we were tempted to sleep in. Then I would recall the fantastic views from the apartment windows and literally jump out of bed! We loved drinking morning coffee while looking out at the red clay tile roofs and the River Tagus, that iconic Lisbon view. This area of Alfama is perfect with intimate restaurants, Fado houses (go to Mesa de Frades housed in what was once a chapel with walls covered in beautiful azulejos), mini grocery stores with all you'll need, welcoming residents and a neighborhood dripping in atmosphere. There is even a laundromat right around the corner and, of course, it also has lovely wall tiles. We also really appreciated that most of the tourists can be found near the castle so you can enjoy this apartment in an authentic way. We spent a week here and found it hard to leave.
Yes, there are steep stairs and small quarters. You are, after all, in an area that was built by the Moors in the 1100's! It definitely captures a certain time and place. So, if you have no real physical limitations, just enjoy yourself.
You can rest assured that you are in good hands with Paulo! Nothing quite like traveling for what feels like forever and having him pick you up at the airport (at no additional charge). He then showed us around the neighborhood and helped with luggage. He is a great host and "ambassador" for Portugal: charming, insightful and so informative (thinking his educational background in art history may just help). He was also very responsive to questions, emails, calls:) beforehand. Obrigado Paulo!

Wonderful Apartment!

Review Submitted: 2016-06-04 18:53
We stayed in this Alfama apartment for slightly over two weeks at the end of April / beginning of May and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The apartment is small but charming and very functional, there was nothing lacking that created a problem for us. Paulo is a delightful host, checking in with us periodically to make sure that everything was okay and to offer suggestions about what to see, do or eat. Of course, being in the Alfama district in Lisbon in a newly renovated apartment is hard to beat!! There are so many great restaurants (you must go hear the Fado at Mesa de Frades), museums (Museo do Azulejo is a must), and sites nearby that we had no need of a car the entire length of our stay. In other words, this apartment serves as a great base for exploring Lisbon. One thing that is noted in the website and must be repeated ... the apartment is on the third floor and is reached by stairs that are quite narrow and very steep. We had no problems but someone with mobility concerns may find them challenging. Other than that one caveat, we doubt that you will find a better place from which you can enjoy such a beautiful city!

Séjour Fantastique

Review Submitted: 2016-04-24 23:45
Nous sommes allés en couple à Lisbonne lors des vacances d'avril 2016, pendant six jours. Nous avons loué un appartement dans le quartier de l'Alfama à Paulo. Nous avons fait connaissance avec Paulo dès notre arrivée à l'aéroport de Lisbonne car il nous attendait pour nous conduire à notre logement . (prestation gratuite!) Ce dernier est situé au dernier étage d'un petit immeuble typique de l'Alfama. Nous avons été enchantés par celui-ci car extrêmement bien situé, au calme, lumineux, très bien équipé pour un couple, décoration cosy et moderne ,près des commerces....Nous avons l'habitude de voyager et avons des éléments de comparaison par conséquent vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés. Le must de cet appartement c'est son propriétaire: Paulo. Il est très chaleureux, empathique, a à coeur de nous faire découvrir sa ville en nous envoyant avant notre départ de nombreux conseils de tous genres: culinaires, transport, quartiers à découvrir... Il a été très discret pendant notre séjour mais s'est assuré de notre bien-être en nous envoyant deux mails durant nos six jours à Lisbonne!

Alfama is the oldest and most traditional of Lisbon’s neighbourhoods. Its existence can be traced back to the period of Moorish domination from the 8th century onwards. Its name comes from the Arabic Al-hamma, meaning fountains or baths and referring to the numerous water sources that used to exist and feed various fountains..

Spreading along the south east slope that descends from the mediaeval São Jorge Castle, meeting with the River Tejo and just 10 minutes walking from the apartment, we are able to find some of the most important touristy sites and monuments that Lisbon has to offer. These include Sé Patriarcal de Lisboa, Lisbon’s Cathedral and oldest church dating back to 1147 and also seat of The Archdiocese, The Monastery of São Vicente de Fora which, is a 17th century, mannerist styled masterpiece, The National Pantheon, where some of Portugal’s most important historical characters are buried or The National Museum of Fado. Other notable places of interest are The Casa dos Bicos, famous for its Gothic Architecture from the 16th century and Nobel Prize winner José de Sousa Saramago’s Foundation Headquarters, Terreiro do Paço, the royal residence from the 16th century until the 18th or the flea market known as Feira da Ladra or 'Thieves' Market'.

Alfama is also one of the old neighbourhoods where Fado runs through the blood of its people. As the purest expression of the soul and the feelings of the Portuguese, Fado can and should be enjoyed in the many restaurants and bars everywhere or simply heard through an open window in a private house.

There are several ways to discover the secrets of Alfama. Walking calmly through its picturesque labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares or taking a ride on the famous number 28 tram are two of the most enjoyable. And the breathtaking views from Santa Luzia and Portas do Sol overlooking Lisbon and The Tejo River should not be missed.

Today, Alfama is a vibrant neighbourhood with its recovered architectural heritage that combines history with a cosmopolitan feel, offering a variety of restaurants, bars and craft shops that will delight those who visit us.

Welcome to Alfama.
