  • Susana is the embodiment of hospitality and friendliness. We felt so much comfortable in this sweet appartment and the name "Heart of Alfama" is the absolute truth. No hotel far and wide, situated very quiet - only small alleyways in the surrounding, no cars. This was my first experience with private appartments in holidays - and was absolutely perfect. I will repeat it for sure. Lissabon was one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been. The flair of this town is absolutely wonderful and very special...

  • Meeting Susana was like meeting with a good family member - a warm and wonderful experience. We received such a good welcome and was introduced to the Alfama neighbourhood which is lovely!

    The flat was just like in the pictures - beautiful and tidy. We felt at home right away! We give our warmest recommendations to Susana and would advise everyone visiting Lisbon to stay in one of Susana's flats! We actually booked another stay with her allready and look forward to another wonderful experience!!!

    November 2013
  • We spent 4 lovely days in Susana's appartment. The location is amazing, really close to the beautiful Portas do Sol view point, and the flat is clean and cosy even if the water jet of the shower is not very powerful ;-). We really enjoyed the atmosphere of the area which is definitely the best place to be in Lisbonne.
    Susana was very considerate and took good care of us and all her tips given at the beginning of week were great.
    WE DEFINITELY RECOMMEND SUSANA'S FLAT !!!! You won't be disappointed

    November 2013
  • Great experience. The apartment is everything what you need for two persons. It is beautiful renovated and looks brand new. The neighbourhood Alfama is fantastic. Susana made us feel very welcome and gave us fantastic suggestions for restaurants and where to go to listen to the real Fado. Time was much to short and we will come back and definitely stay here again!

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 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
