Picture yourself facing “ postcard” river views on a bright summer evening. Or sitting comfortably facing large windows looking at the winter rain falling on orange rooftops; or waking up early morning, sitting in bed and having the river at your feet. These are just a few highlights of this 2-bedroom apartment, the perfect accommodation for a short romantic break, or a family break, in the heart of charming Alfama. 3rd and 4th floor without lift
Registered as local accommodation: 13702/AL

The space
The wonderful thing about this apartment is that it’s flooded with natural light. Everywhere we look there’s an incredible light and beautiful views over the river, the tiled rooftops, the Santa Luzia viewpoint and the convent of São Vicente de Fora. The interiors are comfortable and modern with a color scheme that captures and enhances the sunlight: walls are painted white and the wooden floor has a light shade of brown. We love both the sloping ceiling bedrooms: the main one has a bright red bedcover and a wooden platform, which allows for the most extraordinary early morning views; and the one with the 2 single beds has a ceiling window from where you can gaze at the stars before you fall asleep.

This incredibly scenic apartment has 2 floors, 2 bedrooms (1 en suite with a toilet) and 1 bathroom with shower. Ideal for a small group of friends or for a couple and their children, it is best for 4, but can accommodate 6 guests. Downstairs one finds the living room with a balcony and 2 single sofa beds with panoramic river views together with an equipped kitchenette and a dining table. Upstairs are the bedrooms: the one en suite includes a double bed and a toilet. The other one has 2 single beds (with the option of a double bed). The bathroom has a shower cabin. There are 2 single sofa beds in the living room. Mind your head when walking round the bedrooms because of their sloping ceilings! The many stairs in the apartment, in the building and in the neighborhood are an invitation to the fitness of the guests! (historic area without access to cars)

Lisbon, Portugal

For sightseeing, Alfama is probably Lisbon’s most interesting quarter, packed with monuments from 12th to 18th century, Fado venues, little restaurants and bars, and about 2 minutes away from the famous 28 tram which will take you through some of Lisbon’s highlights.

The apartment is walking distance from the breathtaking Portas do Sol (“sun’s doors”) belvedere from where you can enjoy the river’s ever changing colors and the outline of Serra da Arrábida mountains.

But you can also start to walk the downhill cobbled stone streets of old Lisbon to reach places such as the Fado Museu, Sao Jorge Castle and Se Cathedral, the breathtaking Praça do Comércio, downtown Rossio and, a little further, the aristocratic Chiado and the alternative Bairro Alto.
