The ALFAMA CHARMING APARTAMENT - SURFBOARD born after the sucess of the host´s first apartment - ALFAMA CHARMING APARTMENT - TILES (you may see the reviews of the previous guests on the respective announcement).
The apartment is also located in central Lisbon, in its most historical district - Alfama. It was in this area where Fado - Portuguese traditional music - was born and where tourists may find the most beautifull sights, both in architectural and landscaped terms. Here it´s possible to find old buildings near the banks of Tagus River!
At 100 meters from Tagus River, with easy parking, near subway stations (Terreiro do Paço or Santa Apolónia), bus and tram (nr 15 and nr 28) lines, from the apartments it´s easy to move around the city to enjoy the most important monuments, the best restaurants, shopping areas and the coolest nightlife.
From the ALFAMA CHARMING APARTAMENT - SURFBOARD it´s possible to walk to the Castle of Lisbon (São Jorge), Casa dos Bicos (Fundação Saramago), Fado Museum, Lisbon Pantheon, Military Museum, Santa Apolónia Station, Chafariz D´el Rey, Lisbon Cathedral and Lisbon Downtown.
Who comes to Lisbon and not strolling through the alleys and small streets of Alfama, who does not drink a glass of wine or eat some sardines while is listening a voice singing fado in a traditional house of fado does not brings home the real spirit and magic of this beautiful city!
The ALFAMA CHARMING APARTAMENT - SURFBOARD was recently renovated and combines comfort with the pleasure and privilege of being in a historic building and in a centrally located environment. Dare to spend a few days in Lisbon as a local! Since Alfama it´s also a residential district you may live like the real people from Lisbon!
The concept of this apartment born of the paisson of the host - Surf - and the essay of place a vintage surfboard in the roof of the lobby! We tried to create an explosion of colors in the living room with pieces that remember us the nature mixed with contemporary elements with a refined artistic finish.
The apartment offers the following facilities:
- One bedroom (2 Pax);
- One big day-bed in the living room (+ 2 Pax);
- Sheets and towels;
- Fully-equiped living and dining room;
- Fully-equiped kitchen;
- Hot water;
- Cable TV;
- Internet (wifi);
We hope you enjoy your stay in the most beautiful European capital and you may trust that we are at your disposal for any support or assistance you may need during your stay. Your satisfaction is our success! We want to welcome you warmly!

It´s always made an email communication to the guest prior to check-in. The host will be present for the check-in in order to introduce himself and he will be available during the stay for further assistance.
Alfama is one of the oldest districts in Lisbon and combines the most traditional and typical side of the city with a relaxed atmosphere highly demanded by tourists.
Close to the subway network (Terreiro do Paço), to the tram lines 15 and 28 and with a large concentration of taxis nearby. Public parking at the door of the building. Located at 12 minutes from the airport by taxi and 7 minutes walking from Santa Apolónia train station.
Thanks Alexandre for being such a great host! The apartment was incredible and you were always available and accommodating to our needs! Thanks again!
It was a lovely place to stay and was our first experience of airbnb. The location was great in Alfama and there were several authentic delicious Portuguese restaurants within a few minutes walk. The host wasn't available to meet us that weekend but dispatched his charming father in law to greet us. The appartment has everything you need and is clean, decorated in a simple but artsy style - we felt instantly very at home here. I recommend it!
We stayed at the Surfboard Apartment for 3 nights, the Apartment was just as it was described and as you can see in the pictures: it was well decorated, clean, with excellent Wi-Fi, fully equipped kitchen and located very centrally. We had everything we needed! Although Alexandre was away during that time (pity we couldn't meet in person, maybe next time!), he organised everything well for us and welcomed us with a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolate. All in all, really pleasant stay to enjoy lovely Lisbon city!
Alexandre couldn't have been a better host! He was so helpful and accommodating. Anytime we needed anything he respond immediately. He had great information about everything in Lisbon. We felt very welcomed! The apartment was adorable, and plenty spacious. It was also very clean! The location of the apartment was great and we felt very safe. Alexandre place was perfect for our stay in Lisbon! I highly recommended it!
Perfect location to explore Lisbon. Alexandres apartment is very cozy so we felt very at ease. Everything we needed was there. Shower and beds were great by the way. We would go back to this place for the second time, without a doubt.
We had a pleasant time in Lisboa. The apartement was great for the four of us (kids 4,1). Although our flight was cancelled and we arrived very late, Alexandre was helpful and fast to show us everything. Perfect! And it is in walking distance to the sightseeing stuff.
The apartment was as described. Alexandre is very friendly and met us. He was very happy to answer our questions. The apartment was clean and centrally located. I would definitely visit again and recommend it to others.
The time I spent in the surfboard apartment was indeed a time well spent.
The apartment was tastefully decorated and fully equipped both in room and kitchen. There are brochures that helped me to navigate the city and there's even cable TV!
It is located in Alfama arena so it is easy to reach and close to other area in Lisbon, walking distance to Fado Museum, Castle Sao Jorge, Se Cathedral, Comercio and other main attractions of Lisbon. I could easily go to the other parts of Lisbon as it is close to bus and tram.
Alexandre was a wonderful host. He didn't have the chance to welcome me but he sent his family to welcome and explained the apartment. We met later and he recommended me places from local point of view. He was also easy to contact at all time. He even ordered me taxi as I had to leave Lisbon very early.
This place is highly recommended and I will surely back.
We had a wonderful time at the surfboard apartment. Alexandre is a wonderful and very thoughtful host, the flat was immaculate, very tastefully furnished, and in a perfect location. We will surely book here again on our next trip to Lisbon!
We stayed at the surfboard apartment for 3 days. The apartment was clean, well decorated and had everything we needed. Alexandre was very organized and emailed us the directions and provided parking instructions (lots of metered parking outside the apartment). The apartment had excellent WiFi internet, cable TV and comfortable couch, with a well stocked kitchen (great for making your own light breakfast). The location is close to down town, and right below the apartment are several convenience shops which is great for getting water and fruits. We went and ate at the cute Cafe Pois and Cafe Cruz near by with delicious lunches and dinners. Great Stay!
