Lovely apartment in the heart of Alfama. We loved the winding streets and village atmosphere. The pictures of the apartment are very accurate and everything was as described. We liked the pictures of the local area on the walls and we felt that there was a lot of space for the money. Susana was very easy to communicate with and gave us thoughtful recommendations for restaurants and activities.

Susana apartment was nice, well decorated and charming. It's very conform to the photos so there is no bad surprise. It's located near Tramways, which is very usefull once you become tired of climbing stairs after few days ;-) Susana and her colleagues are very helpful and flexibles, especially for the arrival and departure. I recommend it :-)

Lovely, cosy little flat in Alfama, a charming historic district. A little difficult to find, only because Alfama itself is easy to get lost in but Filippa, Susana's colleague, was standing by waiting to check us in when we arrived in Lisboa. Everything is true to the pictures, the flat is a perfect size for two (and maybe another person or child) and very clean - we felt quite at home. We enjoyed going to the nearby local bakery, Alfama Doce for one of the best pastries in Lisboa, talking to local owners of restaurants, shops and Fado establishments. Lovely times, thank you for the hospitality, Susana and Filippa!

We are a portuguese couple that at the beginning of our married life we have been fortunate to find a house in the center of Lisbon in a neighborhood that we only known the name - Alfama. We were welcomed with open arms by people who do not know us, but they treated us like family. The demonstrations of friendship and good neighborliness were daily ... were undoubtedly one of the best years of our lives. But the family was growing and the house no longer met the conditions for a biger family. We can't give away the house ... it's really special. Then came the idea, why do not provide this experience to others?

The reason why the house is called 'Cats House' is because when we lived there, we had five cats and lovingly to our neighbors and friends called it the House of Cats, and found it good to leave it with that name to remember the happy times live in Alfama and of course in memory of ours cats.

And the will to receive grew even more with this experience, and came "The Window of the World," and other people's homes and friends from a  friends who give us their homes to receive the same love and care we receive in our house ... and thus also come to be our as (URL HIDDEN) receive with the same desire and taste as I have received in the Cats House I hope you like and welcome.

I sincerely hope to those who choose to come to stay in Alfama, which are as happy as we were ...

Susana and João
