The authentic Lisbon experience awaits with this charming apartment nestled in Santo Estêvão, deep in Alfama’s historical heart. Located in a pedestrian alley, away from the busy city traffic, the apartment features a balcony facing a playground with mature deciduous trees and garden benches. You will be able to enjoy a drink while listening to the birds and overlooking the typical neighbourhood's bustle.
The apartment is bright and luminous as there are windows in every room, including the bathroom. It is spacious and comfortable. The TV stand is on castors, so that you can put it where is most comfortable to watch, and put it away when not needed. The kitchen equipment includes microwave with grill, fridge with freezer, an electric-induction stovetop, blender, toaster, and an espresso coffee machine. Cook pots, kettle, coffee maker, cutlery, plates, bowls and fancy stemmed glasses are also available so that you can immediately start to make the best of your Lisbon stay. There is no washing/drying machine as there is a self-service laundry just around the corner (literally 50m away).
The neighbourhood has plenty of shops and cosy restaurants, including fado houses. Within walking distance, you will find inspiring Miradouros with views across the Tagus river, the old city, and the Lisbon Castle. Miradouro de Santo Estêvão is just there, and Miradouro da Graça, Miradouro de Santa Clara, Miradouro das Portas do Sol, and the Lisbon Castle are all within a 10-minutes walk.
The typical Lisbon yellow tram nº28 is the closest public transportation (3 minutes walk to the nearest stop) followed by the subway (blue line, 5 minutes walking) at Santa Apolónia, where many buses and regional trains are also available. The Santa Apolónia combined train/metro station hosts a very convenient supermarket. For the enthusiasts, Lisbon city bikes are available at the Cruise Terminal (5 minutes walk). Downtown Lisbon (Baixa), where you can find many brand shops and other points of interest, is around a 15 minutes walk.
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.

We vouch for all our flat offers! If one does not look like it does on our website, you will get your money back and we will arrange compensatory accommodation for you.
How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancellation policy).
