This cosy and quiet apartment called ‘Alfama I’ is located on the top floor, penthouse, of a complete restored house from the 1720′s in the very heart of Alfama quarter.
The living space is around 28 sqm (20 sqm groundfloor plus 8 sqm mezzanine) but due to the high ceilings the flat appears very appealing, airy and spacious. The apartment consists of an open space with a comfortable kitchen plus dining area and ‘lounge’ area. There is also a classy bathroom. The mezzanine above allows for ample and comfortable sleeping. On the mezzanine you will find a bed with an comfortable mattress 1.60 x 2.00m (which in fact consists of two mattresses of 80 cm with a mattress pad on the top – the mattresses can be separated if you wish).
You get to the mezzanine by a mobile staircase/ladder. Should you prefer not to climb the ladder you can choose to sleep on the comfortable sofa bed on lower floor. From the living room window you have a view of the old town and of the Tagus bay. The kitchen and the bathroom are tiled, whereas living-bedroom has fine polished wooden floors. The apartment has been completely restored in 2009.
When you leave the apartment you enter into Lisbon’s unique architecture beauty with small alleys, old houses and traditional shops, restaurnats and cafes. The famous Alfama quarter not only starts in front of your door – you are in the middle of it!
