Interaction with Guests
We're of the neighborhood, local people. We are always available.
Susana is dedicated to guests the whole time.
We like to be with the guests in the evening with a cool drink, to share a bit of our country and get a bit of the country of origin of each guest.
This neighborhood beyond its charm has a very special thing - its authenticity. It's a neighborhood full of life with people who inhabit it and we have everything from the simplest to the fanciest. In a word - unique
We are in the city center. There is metro, bus and mythical electric 28 is in a few steps away.
The downtown is within walking distance.
I do not want to impose rules for your vacation stay, but still would like to make some notes.
The apartment is in a residential area and we have an excellent relationship with our neighbors, and so we would like to continue.
Please respect the neighbors.
Is always nice to find the apartment estimated.
Wir hatten einen fantastischen Urlaub bei Susana! Die Wohnung ist toll, wirklich mitten in der Alfama gelegen, vom kleinen Balkon aus kann man bis zum Tejo gucken. Alles ist sauber und sehr liebevoll eingerichtet. Susana hat uns sehr nett empfangen und war immer für uns ansprechbar.
Situé au cœur du quartier populaire de l'Alfama (donc à 5-10 minutes de l'hypercentre de Lisbonne), l'appartement est exactement comme sur les photos, on s'y sent vite bien et tout est prévu pour vous y accueillir (serviettes, literie, vaisselle et ustensiles de cuisine très nombreux, il y a même un appareil pour faire des gaufres!). Susana n'étant pas disponible à notre arrivée, nous avons étés accueillis très gentiment par son amie Katia, qui nous a rapidement montré l'appartement et surtout très bien conseillé sur quelques sites intéressants de Lisbonne et des environs (c'est notamment grâce à elle que nous n'avons pas loupé la Quinta da Reigaleira de Sintra), ainsi que quelques bonnes adresses pour manger (notamment le restaurant Alpendre, pas très loin). Malgré des températures estivales assez élevées, l'intérieur de l'appartement n'était pas trop chaud, sans doute car il est traversant donc permet de laisser des courants d'air. Nous sommes restés 4 nuits mais avons beaucoup visité la région, donc finalement passé assez peu de temps dans l'appartement, c'est presque dommage !
Unser Aufenthalt war wunderbar. Susana und ihr Ehemann sind sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und entspannt. Die Wohnung selbst liegt genial mitten in Alfama, mit tollem Blick aus jedem Fenster. Bett und Bad waren sehr komfortabel. Insgesamt absolut weiter zu empfehlen!
Susana was very welcoming and helpful, her flat was as described, very well located and pretty well fitted out, although better suited to a couple than two singles. A sharp knife in the kitchen would be good! But a nice place from which to experience Lisbon.
Susana's apartment is a really good accommodation to stay in Lisbon. We spent 6 nights in this very clean and modern apartment and enjoyed every minute of our stay. It has everything you need and is located in the heart of Alfama, to my mind the coolest part of the town. Susana provided us with very useful restaurant and sightseeing tips which made our life a lot easier. If we come back, we will definitely stay at her place again.
We had a great stay at Susana's apartment which is perfectly located in beautiful Alfama close to Portas do Sol. The apartment was clean and well equipped. Susana gave us a warm welcome on our arrival and useful tips for restaurants close to the apartment. Definetly recommend this place for a stay in Lisbon.
Staying in the Alfama was a unique and special cultural experience that I really enjoyed. The apartment was beautiful and comfortable and Susana did a wonderful job to make sure that we were comfortable and well-informed. I would recommend staying here to anyone.

About the Host, Susana
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 well ...to 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
