Alfama & Se, the oldest district

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Travessa de Santo António da Sé, Lisbon, Lisbon 1100, Portugal

The Space

Welcome to Alfama & Sé (cathedral) apartment situated in the maze-like district that proudly bears the title of birthplace of Lisbon and still maintains many traditions, not least its role as fado heartland. For three thousand years the hillside of Alfama was occupied by Arabs, Romans and Visigoths but now can be occupied by you, in this charming and comfortable apartment. You'll feel like you're in your "home in Lisbon" and not in a house decorated to welcome tourists.

But do not think Alfama was lost in the past: an increasingly younger population has revitalize it. The proof of this is this apartment on the third floor of a building recently renewed and it is the ideal choice for those of you who want to discover the origins of Lisbon and at the same time stay in a quiet and safe area. It is fully furnished and receives enough sunlight.

DEFINING EXPERIENCE
From the apartment, wander around Baixa (Lower Town), Lisbon’s heartbeat, take a tram to Belém for a custard tart or climb aboard the tram No 28 to Miradouro da Graça to avoid the uphill slog. All this is only a few steps away.
On June 12, Alfama remains one of the best neighborhoods to celebrate the Santos Populares (People’s saints), so, in this order – dress up in an outlandish costume, stuff your face with sardines, down a barrel of sangria and then, when you’re suitably inebriated, take a pot of basil, a paper carnation and the best love poem you can write (you had better make that two barrels of sangria) to your secret lover. I guarantee she (or he) will love you for it!

  • Great suite, in a fantastic location! Hugo was a great host and told us lots about the city. The suite was as shown with a nice kitchen and living spaces. We really loved the location it couldn't be better really super close the center of everything and near some very good restaurants. I would easily recommend:)

  • We had a great time in Lisbon thanks to Hugo's very nice and ideally situated apartment. It's 50m from the Sé Cathedral, in a central and charming neighbourhood with typical narrow streets.

    The apartment itself had all the comfort we needed with two nice bedrooms and a well equipped kitchen (dishwasher, toaster, washing machine...). Hugo was a very friendly host, he gave us very helpful tips about the city, the places to see, the good restaurants....

    We definitely recommend Hugo's apartment to anyone who wishes to have a pleasant stay in old central Lisbon.

  • Awesome stay
    Hugo was the perfect host.
    He was a wealth of information, accomodating to our schedules and, in addition, he speaks fluently English and French.
    The apartment was perfect, comfortable and very well located. An advice, ask Hugo to tell you about Tabernas. The best of Lisbon is just next to the apartment.
    Definitely the best place in lisbon

  • Petit appartement dans le vieux quartier, bien placé pour les transports ou les visites à pieds, bref, c'était bien pratique et très agréable.

  • I booked Hugo's apartment for my parents. They stayed there 8 nights and really enjoyed their time. The flat was clean and tidy and very well located. Apart from the historical surroundings they enjoyed the local bars and restaurants. Hugo met them upon arrival and gave them information on the tourist attractions. Overall they had an amazing experience!

  • Hugo was a great host. His apartment is clean, convenient, spacious and ideally located. I would definitely recommend it to my friends coming to Lisbon.

  • We stayed at Hugo's during our holiday in Lisbon, and we had a wonderful time. The apartment is lovely and clean. It is located right in the center, only a few steps away from the cathedral, the tram stops, and a metro station. Nearby restaurants and cafés serve excellent Portuguese food, and the apartment itself is in a small, quiet street. The perfect location for a holiday. Hugo has been incredibly friendly and helpful, answering any of our queries and sharing his extensive knowledge of the area. We know where to stay next time we'll be in Lisbon!
