We created our home with real love, trying to keep the old spirit of the building. We believe it's different and special place, where everyone could feel relaxed and happy. It's located right next to Sao Miguel church and 5 min. from Santa Apolonia station. Sao Miguel square is beautiful and romantic, keeping the magic of Alfama with its local people, always shouting, laughing and busy with their daily stuff. The space is small, but enough for 4 people with all you need.

The space

NB!!!Check in after 10 pm should be discussed.
The apartment itself is about 40 m2 and it is located in a great historical building, right between a popular fado restaurant and Sao Miguel church. It has a spacious living room with two windows that let a lot of sun during the day, connected to a cute little kitchen. Here you can make your own dinner and enjoy it at the big dinning table. The kitchen is equipped with all the utilities you may need, it has a big fridge, oven, stove and a microwave, also dishes, pots and pans and everything. In the kitchen closets you can also find coffee, tea, sugar, salt, some herbs, olive oil and some other basics for preparing a meal. The couch can also be transformed into an comfortable double bed. There is a separate bedroom with a comfortable queen size bed, big wardrobe with hangers and an extra bedside closet. Typically for the old houses in Alfama the bathroom is small. Here you will find soaps, shampoos and of course clean towels. There is also a washing machine with the washing liquids provided.
NB!!! Please note, that check in after 10 pm should be discussed before making the booking.

Guest access

The apartment is located on the third floor of a historical building, which means NO elevator, but surprisingly for the old houses in Alfama the stairs are not so steep and narrow, so going upstairs with luggage is not so difficult.

Interaction with guests

If I am in town I will be happy to show you around and introduce you to the good spots in Lisboa. When I am traveling I try to stay online all the time and can also give some directions and help you if you need, but you can also count on my friend Maria who will be there to cover for me. Anything you need, please always contact only me via the Airbnb platform.

Other things to note

NB!!! If you plan to visit in June!!!

Please have in mind that big celebrations and loud parties are part of the Portuguese nature, and as Sao Miguel square is one of the main spots in Alfama, during holidays it gets pretty busy here, especially in June.
For those of you who are planing to visit Lisbon in June you should prepare yourself to experience something amazing. June is the moth of celebration here. The streets are all covered colorful paper decoration, lanterns and lights, there are barbecues, bars, stands with typical Portuguese treats. Popular music sounds from everywhere and people are hanging out dancing on the streets till the small hours. Fridays and Saturdays there is a stage with live music just behind the Church, these days are the peak of the party so don't rely on going to sleep before 4 am. Even with the windows closed you have the feeling the bands are playing in your living room so just better grab a bottle of vino verde and learn to party with the locals. Also be ready for clouds of smoke coming from the sardinas BBQ downstairs. The other week days are a bit calmer, but still have in mind that all the madness is happening right under your window.

Central, in the middle of Fado, Fish and red wine, this flat is perfectly located for a stay at the heart of Lisbon. We fell in love with the city and always looked forward to returning home from long strolls through Lisbon since we really loved the style of the flat. Viki was a very reliable and kind host to us. We would always come back to this holiday paradise!
