The Space

The apartment was rehabilitated and decorated for the comfort of your stay. Fully equipped and furnished, very cozy. Being on the 5th floor allows the apartment to be constantly bathed by Lisbon´s unique sunlight.
Has one sofa bed in the living room and a double bed in the bedroom. The flat is equipped with:
- Cable TV;
- Wireless;
- Kitchenet;
- Iron
- Hair Dryer

It is located in the historic quarter of Alfama and it is very easy to get there. Visiting Alfama is to visit the architecture, the sounds and the smells of old Lisbon. This is one of the most typical quarters of Lisbon. On its narrow and winding streets you will find the hidden treasure of Alfama and on its steep stairs you will be able to breathe the soul of Lisbon.
During the times of Moorish domination, Alfama constituted the whole of the city, which later spread to the West. The great 1755 Lisbon Earthquake did not destroy Alfama, which has remained a picturesque labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares. Lately the neighbourhood has been invigorated with the renovation of the old houses and new restaurants where Fado can be enjoyed. Visitors will find the unique atmosphere prevailing in the streets and alleyways of far greater interest than individual buildings.
Some houses in this quarter still stand on foundations dating from the times of the West Goths, but the whole structure of the area was essentially shaped by the Arabs (due to this, most of the houses, including this one, don´t have an elevator, therefore it's not recomended to people with limited mobility).

Places near by that you cannot miss:

São Miguel Church:
In São Miguel Square (same as the apartment) - Located in the center of Alfama, this church always has tourists passing by, but almost no one goes inside to admire the beautiful interior. It is almost always closed, opening only once or twice a week for Mass on Friday afternoon (5PM) or early Sunday morning. It has one of the richest gilded interiors in the city, which is why it's one of the most surprisingly monumental attractions in Lisbon.
.
Museo do Fado:
Largo do Chafariz de Dentro, N.º 1 (1 min walking) - Entirely devoted to Lisbon's urban song universe, Museu do Fado opened its doors to the public on the 25 September 1998, celebrating Fado’s exceptional value as an identifying symbol of the City of Lisbon, its deep roots in the tradition and cultural history of the country, its role in the cultural identity statement and its importance as an inspiration source and intercultural trade between people and communities.

Feira da Ladra "Flea Market" (5 min walking) - The market is held every Tuesday and Saturday, from dawn to dusk. A myriad of small stalls sell all sorts of secondhand and new products, and other traders simply display their store on a stretched-out blanket.

Nostalgic Tram 28 (10 min walking) - It's perhaps Lisbon's most popular activity: A ride back in time over hills and medieval streets in vintage trams that are still part of the city's public transportation network. They go past some major attractions.

Santos Populares (on your doorstep!!!) - In June, the month of the Festas dos Santos Populares (Feast Days of the Popular Saints), the Lisbon nights are filled with lively festivities that take over the city’s historical center. On the eve of Saint Anthony day Lisbon turns into one big party!

I will be most thrilled to receive you and I will make sure you fall in love with this amazingly beautiful city.

See you soon :)

  • The apartment is located right in the center of picturesque Alfama, perfect for exploring Lisbon on foot.
    It is small but fully equipped and hence well suited for a nice weekend.
    Depending on whether you prefer your bed to be somewhat softer or harder consider using the fold out sofa instead of the bed.

    Claudia has been a very friendly and approachable host who greeted us at the fado museum and was lovely to talk with.

  • We spent four days and nights in Lisbon - and we were very lucky to have stayed in Claudia's wonderful apartment right in the heart of the Alfama neighborhood. The apartment was clean, full of sun, spacious, and had excellent living room and kitchen areas. The views from the apartment in the morning and at dusk were stunning. Claudia was helpful every step of the way with directions to the apartment and they left us a ton of helpful information about things to do in Lisbon. Our first night we went to hear Fado music at a local restaurant called "A Baiuca" - the food was good, the music excellent, and it was right across the street from the apartment. Claudia was also very attentive. During our stay, the shower hose developed a leak. We contacted Claudia and it was resolved quickly and efficiently during the day while we were walking around the city. Overall, we had a fantastic experience. We highly recommend staying here if you pass through Lisbon.

  • Claudia was available when we needed her and offered immediate assistance. The location is superb, so you can easily reach central Lisbon and most of the attractions. The apartment is compact but fully equipped. You really get what you see in the pictures. There is a great view from the windows, and you hear the sound of fado in the evenings.

  • My girlfriend and I spent 5 nights at Claudia´s apartment in Alfama. Cosy apartment in a great location. The apartment had all we needed, including a large refrigerator and freezer. Will definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who is going to visit Lisbon.

  • We really enjoyed Claudia's apartment. The location in the Alfama was perfect and everything in the apartment was just as described. There was a lovely view out over the rooftops of the Alfama and a very nice breeze. The suggestions of what to visit in Lisbon were very nice also.

  • Ondanks dat het niet zo "sunny" was, maar vooral geregend heeft was het verblijf in het appartement van Cláudia en Francisco heerlijk!

    Een kleine studio met alles erop en eraan. Midden in het prachtige oude deel van Lissabon, Alfama. Met eindeloze steegjes, trappen en steile weggetjes.

    Ontbijt absoluut even met een Pastel de Nata en een sterkte espresso bij de buurvrouw. En lees de tips en adviezen voor uitstapjes en "must-see/do" dingen van Cláudia en Francisco even door.

  • Hola Claudia como estas? Obrigada para todo!
    Appartamento molto carino dotato di tutto quello di cui uno abbia bisogno nel quartiere dell'Alfama secondo me il più caratteristico di Lisbona. La proprietaria è molto gentile e disponibile a qualsiasi richiesta . L'unica nota non positiva sono i 5 piani di scale molto ripide (non adatto quindi per persone anziane o con bambini piccoli).

  • Wir hatten eine wundervolle Zeit in Claudias Appartement! Es ist alles vorhanden was man für nen kleinen kurzen Aufenthalt in Lissabon braucht! Man fühlt sich direkt wie zuhause in der frisch duftenden Bettwäsche. Sehr zentral gelegen in Alfama! Zu Fuß sind alle wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten schnell zu erreichen! Fazit: immer wieder gerne
