Location and description of the neighborhood:
The house is located in the very emblematic and well-known neighborhood of Alfama. The drying clothes hanging from the windows, the narrow and steep streets, the flower pots hanging from windows, the fado houses... these are some of the trademarks of the most photographed area of Lisbon.
Fado, which is an old and uniquely Portuguese genre of music, is unbeatable in this part of town. Take advantage of its close proximity, visit the Fado Museum, and lose yourself in the many small rustic bars (tavernas) where you can enjoy drinks and traditional food.
Located nearby are the stunning viewpoints of miradouro de Santa Lucía and miradouro de Graça. The historic neighborhoods of Graça, Chiado, Bairro Alto, Bica and Santa Catarina are all walking distance. The apartment is well served by transport (Tram 28, bus and metro); and just 20 minutes from the airport. Countless cultural points of interest are found nearby (theaters, museums, monuments, exhibitions and animation).Just 25 minutes away is Costa da Caparica (an endless coastline on the other side of the bridge) ,the coastal towns of Cascais and Estoril, and the magical hills and palaces of Sintra.
A 5 min. walk from the apartment will take you to the Panteão Nacional, that dates back to the XVI century and has a large dome that rises and can be spotted from many places in Lisbon. Inside you will find the mausoleum of some the most important historical Portuguese figures. Just a few steps away is the flea market or 'Feira da Ladra' which can be translated to 'Thieve's market'. Here, people set up their stalls every Tuesday and Saturday and you can find an infinite amount of cheap bargains, vintage articles and clothes, antiques, old books and music discs, electronic equipment, and anything else you can imagine. 10 minutes away, heading towards the centre along the river, you will find Lisbon's gates, known as 'Terreiro do Paço'. Here, let yourself be amazed by the splendor of the largest and most visited square in Lisbon, the Praça do Comercio. Continue up north, and explore the commercial area of Baixa where you will find an array of shops, selling a variety of products, both Portuguese and foreign. Finally, you can have a meal along the river in one of the many restaurants.
The Santa Apolonia Metro (and Train) Station is just 3 minutes away by foot, and with it's network of 4 lines allows you to get to any part of the city. Taxis are also readily available just in front of the station.The route of Tram No. 28 also passes nearby, the nearest stop being in Rua Escolas Gerais.

This place was amazing, the picture do not do it justice! It's wonderfully decorated, close enough to enjoy the city and night life & conveniently just down the road from the train station.
I booked the houe for 7 friends and there was more than enough room. Everybody was very impressed with the location and the house itself.
The host was equally amazing! He was always around if we needed and offered a lot of valuable advice to enjoying our holiday. Quick to respond to emails prior to booking and happy to answer any questions.
I definitely recommend Lisbon as a holiday destination & this house to stay in - you won't be disappointed!

Our host was lovely and extremely helpful in giving us the main information of places to go in Lisbon, from restaurants to clubs. He also provided us with basic foods and drink upon arrival too which was very nice! A very nice guy!
