Because I want charm inside and out

Will I like it here?

We certainly think so.

Are you looking to base yourself in one of Lisbon's most charming neighbourhoods? Grab this very stylish 1-bedroom apartment, and let the adventure begin.

Really? Tell me more…

You will love Alfama. There is history around every corner, and you'll be within walking distance of some of the city's most iconic spots. Walk to the Miradouro de Santa Luzia for an unforgettable sunset, or explore the Moorish castle of St. Jorge.

We think this apartment is ideal for a fun-loving couple looking for a super stylish setup. This classic abode boasts lovely polished wooden floors, fashionable furnishings, and some quirky art adorning the walls. It's a looker.

Your top 3 reasons to rent here:

  • The beautiful living room.
  • The sofa in the living room folds out into a bed.
  • The 28E tram passes by right across the street.

But you need to know this...

  • The apartment is located on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator – get in a free leg workout every day.
  • The bedroom is furnished with 2 single beds – push them together if you need a double.
  • There was some construction taking place across the street when we visited.
