The chic-y charmer

Because I want the location and the look.

Will I like it here?

It would be hard not to.

Are you a history buff looking for a charming inner-city spot? Grab this very stylish 1-bedroom apartment, roll up the map, and let the exploration begin.

Really? Tell me more…

You will love the location. Alfama is right in the historic heart of the city. Walk to the iconic Miradouro de Santa Luzia, the Moorish castle of St. Jorge, or simply get lost amongst the wonderful, winding streets. You'll be charmed, guaranteed.

We think this apartment is ideal for an adventurous professional couple looking for a super stylish setup. The decor is on point, and you've got ample space to entertain. There's even a cute standing balcony. Lovely.

Your top 3 reasons to rent here:

  • The beautiful living and dining room. Dinner party perhaps?
  • The cute standing balcony, of course.
  • Alfama is as charming as it gets (and it gets very charming).

But you need to know this...

  • The apartment is located on the 2nd floor and there is no elevator – get in a free leg workout every day.
  • The bedroom doesn't have any exterior windows – great if you like to sleep in.
  • There was some construction taking place across the street when we visited.
