A room at Lisbon’s most emblematic neighborhood, ALFAMA.

It’s beauty, must be experienced to be fully appreciated. Conquer the small streets at random appreciating the feeling to be a bit lost in the big city.

The space

Alfama is the oldest district of Lisbon, spreading on the slope between the São Jorge Castle and the Tejo river. Its name comes from the Arabic Al-hamma, meaning fountains or baths.

“A labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares”

A kind of village in a big city with the narrow streets, small squares, churches and houses with iron balconies decorated with flower pots, drying clothes and birds cages, bringing joy to most tourists because of it's multitude of medieval streets and magnificent belvederes (miradouros

Guest access

With access to a private and cozy patio where surrounded by flowers (still in construction) u might enjoy a cold drink lying on the sun during summer or a hot beverage during winter.

The kitchen if fully equipped (no microwaves... my option).

Interaction with guests

I'm (very) happy do help during your staying.
I love this city and i spend a fair amount of hours exploring it.
It's always a pleasure to go have company for a walk.

Other things to note

You will be sharing the house with me (David), 3 cats (Kami & Kaze & Bowie).

All my furry companions spend most of the day in the outside area just going inside the house to sleep.

I expect my guests to be animal friendly.

David's place was great for a solo traveller (or a couple), walking distance from a lot of cool places and also close to a metro station. The room was nice and comfy, and there was coffee in the morning. The cats and the dog were good companions and David was very helpful when needed. Would recommend!

David and Ricardo were brilliant hosts, very relaxed and welcoming. They were happy to chat about their city and give advice as to what to see and do. The apartment is in an ideal location, walking distance from the main sights of Lisbon city centre and very close to a major train and metro station. It's in the centre of Alfama, which is an incredibly beautiful part of the city with loads of bars and restaurants. David and Ricardo also run a lovely cafe just around the corner from the apartment, which is perfect place to go for a morning coffee or to sit with a beer. The room is very comfortable and clean with lots of light. Overall, staying with these guys was a very comfortable and laid back experience. The location is perfect for exploring a beautiful city.

Had the most amazing time in Lisbon and loved our stay at David's. The location was fantastic. Definitely felt like we chose a great spot to stay in. Alfama is amazing for walking around and great little restaurants and Fado singers. It was really magical. Also hiring a Tuktuk from the top of Alfama was a highlight. Great way to see Lisbon. David and his partner were so friendly and welcoming. Both very helpful in letting us know things to do around Lisbon. Would highly recommend and would love to go back one day. Very fond memories.

Had a fabulous stay at David's place! Great location, comfortable room, very friendly cats and very friendly host. Had a bottle of wine waiting for me when I arrived, showed me some great places my first night and even though he wasn't feeling well on my second night, he took time to give me some dinner suggestions. Had such a lovely stay thank you

David & his cats made us feel very welcome & gave us lots of helpful local info. The accommodation was as described & the setting was perfect - in the old medieval town of Alfama with lovely narrow cobbled streets.
