A very cozy apartment, ideal for families: parents' bedroom + kids room! Or friends.

This is one of the oldest quarters in the city but it is not a "Disneyland feature": it is fully alive of locals who still live and work here, interacting with passerbys and tourists.

The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region
Lisbon is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe (in the world, maybe?).
It is a very ancient city which did not suffer from the world war destructions, so it still has the enchantment of so many centuries added year after year, overlooking an immensely large river (Tagus / Tejo).
ALFAMA, where the apartment is located, is the oldest quarter of Lisbon.
Its streets are winding, going up and down the hills, suddenly revealing breathtaking river views or picturesque places.
Near the apartment (2 blocks up the street) takes place the Flea Market every Tuesday and Saturday. The National Pantheon is there as well, one of the most visited monuments in the city.
The monastery of Saint Vincent (S. Vicente de Fora) is very close, 7 minutes uphill. You can take the famous "28 Tram", a wooden streetcar which goes up and down the several hills of the historical center of Lisbon.
At the streets nearby the apartment you can find many cozy and economical restaurants, Fado restaurants (where the traditional song "Fado" is sung), as well as some of the most exquisite, fancy and expensive gourmet restaurants.
We'll give you all those precise directions!
