Located in a narrow alley of old Alfama, this 1st-floor apartment is tranquil and stylish. Tall windows with original wooden shutters and fresh white floral curtains, exposed stonework on the walls of the kitchen and cozy bedrooms are some of the features of this charming apartment, entirely suited to holidays or work. Singular and attractive interiors combined with historical exteriors are the key elements for making the most of one of Europe’s trendiest cities.
In a beautiful historical quarter and entirely renovated, this apartment is part of a narrow and discrete alley where cars are not allowed. Its interiors are stylish and comprise wooden floors and original wooden shutters combined with low-key colors, cozy rooms, excellent beds and a nice, spacious common area. The general feel is that the interiors have been very tastefully decorated, always with the guests’ comfort in mind.
Historical Alfama dates back to the time of Arab occupation (ca. 8th, 9th century AD), which is probably why it is packed with so many Fado venues, as the traditional Portuguese song is supposed to have been influenced by the Arab culture. Quite typical and not at all uncommon is to listen to Fado amateurs singing their hearts out from the inside of their own homes! This charming quarter is also jammed with centuries old monuments, quaint grocery stores, charming shops, a flea market and labyrinthine alleys. On foot, you can reach most of old, historical Lisbon.
You can also marvel, day in day out, at the glistening Tagus river from Alfama’s highest spots. The Fado Museum is another of Alfama’s highlights.
The apartment’s quiet alley is walking distance from some of Lisbon’s “relics”: 5 min to the Fado Museum, Panteão Nacional (where the Portuguese royal family and prestigious Portuguese are buried) and São Vicente de Fora convent; 10 min to São Jorge Castle or the Se Cathedral;15 min from one of the world’s most beautiful square, Praça do Comércio, and the elegant downtown buildings; a little further away, are the aristocratic Chiado and the alternative Bairro Alto with a trendy nightlife. Of course, you will also have to explore Belém – the Museum quarter. So please take a bus or a tram and spend some time there. Loads to see in Belém!
Nearby, less than a 5 minutes walk, runs the ultra-famous 28 tram line which crosses some of the best historical quarters, as well as Santa Apolónia metro and train station which links Lisbon to the whole country. The metro network reaches a good part of Lisbon. Metro and buses can also take you to Cais do Sodré train station which serves the beautiful Cascais and Estoril summer resorts, or to Rossio train station from where you can reach Lord Byron’s beloved village of Sintra.
