Great location

The building was erected on the historic walls of D. Fernando, at the foot of the river, near the place where the tobacco used to be negotiated. The name of its street JARDIM DO TABACO is still there to witness it.

The space
This flat was completely renovated in 2010 and offers all the modern comfort, although it has preserved its period’s character.
All bedrooms and living room have air conditioning.
Its internal space is its second asset! A bright lounge/dining room of 40 m2, 3 bathrooms. A LCD with cable and all its audiovisual equipment, DVDs and CDs, a favourite addresses book will satisfy the most demanding. The spacious bedrooms own all 2 individual beds convertible in double beds ( 2 double beds with 1, 60 x 2, 00 and 2 double beds with 1,80 X 2,00 ) on request. In the kitchen, provided with all the modern equipment necessary, it is its spectacular chimney with the exposed brickwork that will leave a deep impression.

Guest access
Its localization is its biggest asset: near the museum of the fado, a few minutes away from “praça do comercio” and Baixa Pombalina, the Castel of São Jorge and from Casa dos Bicos. Its area is served by public transport; the subway, the typical tram of Lisbon and the bus.

You are between the lanes of the medieval district of Alfama and the river which bathes the city. You can follow along the Tagus the South of the capital up to the sea or explore the trendy and elitist zone of the Docas.

Location

Lisboa, Portugal

There are a supermarket open 7 days a week, between 8 am - 10 pm with take away options !

The district :
ALFAMA is the oldest district of Lisboa, the only one who survived from the terrible earthquake of 1755. It kept its very pecular ambiance of village with its narrow streets, its hundred of stairs, its Dead end Streets and « becos ». A lot of mistery here. We hope you will like to loose yourself here by wandering around. Two very nice white churches around : Sao Miguel and San Estevão.

You will reside on the heart of Fado's district in a remarkable environment while staying at the proximity of the most importants touristic places of the capital. You will be at few minutes by feet from Praça do Comércio (the most central place of Lisboa where you will find the tourist office) and the Baixa district. A perfect place for shopping, you will find there international brands as traditionnal portuguese clothes and decoration shop.

There is a bike rental shop at 500 meters from our flat which also rents electric bikes, very useful with all the straight hills of Lisboa.

By crossing the Alfama district you will find the line 28 streetcar (that you can see on every postcards of Lisboa !) that will bring you in few minutes in the other districts of Lisboa : Baixa, Bairro Alto, Santa Catarina, São Bento, Estrela and finally Campo de Ourique.

Bus goes from Santa Apollonia to Cais do Sodre. From this railway station, you have got trains going to Belem, Sintra, Cascais and its beaches : carcavelos or praia do guincho for example. 728 bus goes directly to Belem!

Shops, Restaurants & bars
You will find the local supermarket « Pingo Doce » at Santa Apolonia for the everyday stuff open from 8 AM to 10 PM.
The biggest flee market of the city « Feira da Ladra »stands two times a week, on Tuesday and Saturday, at Sao Vicente da Fora, just behind the Penteão, at 10mn away by walk.

For a gastronomic experience there is a delicatessen, a pastry and a very good bakery on the Largo do Chafariz de Dentro, the lovely square at 50 meters from home just in front of the Museum do Fado. There are few traditionnal portuguese restaurants there that put tables outside : a perfect place for a typical lunch in the sun. Our favorite restaurant : the one at the top right corner: excellent & very cheap grilled fish !

BY NIGHT, you are in the heart of the district of the best fado clubs. A very good one is at the bottom of our building, in Beco do Melo : Guitarras of Lisboa. But we think the best is in Rua dos Remedios : Mesa de Frades. Don’t forget to book your table !

Later you could have a drink outside at Ginjinha da Sé, Pois Café or Ondajazz. For the nightclubber, we are also very closed to the mythic nightclub of Lisboa : the Lux Frágil !
