Be simple, comfortable, central, curious and relaxed, just like Lisboa, in this little apartment located in the historic district of Alfama.

Our place is a cosy little apartment in the heart of Alfama... Lisboa's most emblematic neighbourhood and one of the most rewarding for walkers and photographers thanks to its medieval alleys and outstanding views.

Because its foundation is dense bedrock, it survived the 1755 earthquake and a walk through this residential neighbourhood is now a step back in time. It is a village within a city still made up of narrow streets, tiny squares, churches, and whitewashed houses with tile panels and wrought-iron balconies adorned with pots of flowers and drying laundry.

Very good communication with Sofia arranging our stay. When we arrived Arthur met us and provided the very best and most helpful tips about visiting Lisbon, we really did feel at home immediately and had some wonderful experiences. The apartment is everything it appears and more, in a great part of the city and handy to everything. Thanks for having us!

This is an amazing little flat to stay in the old area of Lisbon. The hosts are very organised and took time to orientate me in the area and answer my questions about Lisbon. i would definitely stay again.

Really great stay, everything was amazingly clean and Sofia did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Would be ideal for a couple, single traveller or two friends looking for a base from which to explore the city.

We loved staying in Patricia & Arthur’s place! It’s the perfect size for one or two guest and a great place to relax at the end of the day. The neighborhood of Alfama is super cute and right outside of the apartment there were always people out playing games and listening to music! Sofia was super helpful and gave us some good tips about taking the metro and getting around the city. She was also very flexible with our check in and check out times which was great!

This is a lovely place to stay. We really enjoyed the Alfama area with it's steep steps and narrow alley ways. We felt very safe and comfortable there. There are plenty of places to eat locally and a small supermarket just across the road, with a larger one at Santa Apolonia station (about 10 minutes away). The apartment had everything we needed, a comfortable bed, an efficient shower and a well equipped kitchen. It was also very clean and very pleasantly decorated. Arthur met us at the apartment and provided us with some very helpful information about getting about, and some suggestions about things to do. Lisbon has a very good Metro system, very simple to navigate, but we also used buses and trams, and we caught a ferry across to Cacilhas and a train to Sintra. Lisbon is a wonderful place to visit.

Great location! Gets a little lively at night but other than that is perfectly situated in the Old town. Sofia was very accommodating and met us later than originally planned due to delayed flight. I would definitely stay here again!
