Surrounded by centuries-old houses in Lisbon’s Alfama district, this bright apartment located in a colourful, traditional building is a treat for first-time tourists and seasoned visitors alike. A cool Scandi vibe sets a clean, laid-back tone from the moment you walk through the door, with a sofa perfectly positioned by the living room’s tall window to enjoy leafy neighbourhood views. We love the openness of this home’s layout which lets the sunlight pour in from one room to the next, while the bedroom feels like a snug cocoon with its simple yet elegant wood accents. We particularly like the handy vestibule that lets you fall asleep – doors open – to the outside’s breeze. Factor in a luxurious rainfall shower and you’ve got everything you need here for a blissfully relaxing stay. Outside of your home, you’re just a three-minute walk from the Miradouro das Portas do Sol viewing point, a four-minute walk from São Jorge Castle and a fifteen-minute stroll from bustling Praça do Comércio.
Home truths: *The apartment is located on the ground floor and has a private street entrance – there's no access to cars in front of the home
*The host is happy to provide a cot and babysitter recommendations if needed
*Unfortunately, there's no washing machine here
*The bedroom does not have much storage for clothes
*The vestibule in the bedroom leads to an air-conditioning extraction unit which can be noisy with the windows open
*As this home is in the historic Alfama district, the internet is on the slow side – if you need to work during your say, you may want to look elsewhere
*There's no parking here, but we recommend skipping the car and using Lisbon's excellent public transport instead – Martim Moniz station is a ten-minute walk away
