  • Fantastic location and so beautiful apartment!
    We stayed in december for a few days , and it was I think the best place we could have rented. The flat is superclean, bright, comfy and so quiet! We slept like babies. maybe during summer the streets are a bit noisier but in winter it was really really quiet. and the view form the balcony is stunning!!!
    there is everything you need to cook your meals which is really nice.
    We also really enjoyed that Ines, susana's niece, picked us up at the airport and took us back when we left ( our flight was at 6am so it was really appreciated!)

    Susana gave us a lot of good tips , and was really quick to answer during the reservation process.
    Thank you so much Susana and Ines, have a wonderful year 2014!

  • With my husband we spent 3 lovely days in La fenêtre du Soleil in November.
    Susana was very welcoming and gaves us some good advices.
    The flat is situated in Alfama's charming area. Just be physically fit as it's going up and down ;-)! We especially appreciated that it was really quiet during the night. Really nice and bright apartment, fully equiped, to 2 min walk from tram 28.

    Only 2 little points (but I think Susana we'll fix shortly): the hot water wasn't hot enough for us and there weren't any window shutters or curtains in the bedroom.

    We definitely recomand this place to stay in Lisboa!!!

  • Very warm welcome, clean and charming apartment with all you need and modern equipments.
    Great location - Alfama is just perfect for discovering Lisbon and there are authentic small restaurants around the corner.
    Susana is the perfect host - very kind person and happy to help with all queries you might have!
    Highly recommend!

  • After a week in a soulless business hotel, Susana's place was inviting, charming, original and 100% local. Be prepared to get lost in the alleys and stairs of Alfama. We were greeted on time, received really useful hints and recommendations for food and alike, and found the apartment in mint condition. And it has wifi that actually works. You will stay where others hop off the 28 to look down from the Mirador Lago Portas do Sol. We enjoyed our stay and liked the way how Susana made herself available to us for questions and even helped us with transfers (7am lifts to the airport are no problem). Thanks.

  • I had a great stay here in early October. The apartment looks exactly like it does in the pictures. It's in a great location, close to transport (tram or metro), and is very comfortable. Susana and her niece Ines were beyond friendly and very helpful. The twisty streets and alleys of the Alfama seemed daunting at first, but they gave me plenty of tips to help me find my way around without getting lost (and provided me with a mobile phone in case that did happen). If I ever make it back to Lisbon, I'd definitely stay here again or at one of Susana's other properties.

  • Très bel appartement situé dans le quartier typique d'Alfama.

  • Susana is a very nice host. We spent some really nice days in the apartment to discover Lisbon. The place was clean, well equipped and offers plenty of space for two people. It was great that Susana provided a mobile phone so that we could always reach her in emergencies. Also, we appreciated the fact that she picked us up and led us the way to the apartment as Alfama can turn out to be a little labyrinth. I definitely recommend Susana and her apartment!

    (Light sleepers should be prepared for the noise in the streets though. Alfama is a quite busy area with many locals. So it wasn't seldom that people were talking loudly in the streets. )

  • Alfama is an excellent location for a holiday flat, quiet for sleeping and endless interesting walks by day, like the bread walk first thing in the morning. Windows into the Sun was the perfect place to stay and became home for us. After a day's visiting the delights of Lisbon we could jump on a 28 tram and return to the comforts of a good shower, a cool drink from the giant fridge, relax in the elegant living room and start cooking in the well equipped kitchen. And all this topped by the generosity of our host Susana who was our guardian angel!

About
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
