With a magnificent and privileged balcony overlooking the Tagus River, where you can sit and relax at any time of the day and night.

Integrated in a Guest House in the middle of the heart of Alfama.

The space

With air conditioning and a balcony.
With shared bathroom with another room.

Alfama is the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon. These little houses are a part of this particular world. Actually, all this area was once part of a palace where the Counts of Vila Flor used to live. Therefore, we feel a great deal of responsability handling a place with more than four centuries of history! These houses have been renovated respecting all of its history. They integrate both present and past. Because of that, the result is a unique space in Lisbon, different from anything else.

The Guest House is an old Villa. This village is where they resided workers who worked the Palácio Vila Flor.

This space was recently renovated and transformed into a GuestHouse with various types of accommodation

- Independetes Homes.
- Rooms with shared baths. (Breakfast included)
- Rooms with private baths. (Breakfast included)

Every day your rooms they are made and clean.

The houses has 3 levels. The ground floor which has a kitchenette with a small living room. The 1st floor has a toilet and a bedroom. Then has a mezzanine above.

The cottages and rooms have in common with the other guests is the patio. Also has other common structures ... are common to all the Guest House spaces.

The place is in an excellent location, just two minutes away from restaurants, shops, fado.
There's public parking available nearby (depending on the area, there might be some charges.

For us, Lisbon is not a postcard. It's a real place with real people, history, traditions. We believe at Vila Flor you can experience all this naturally.

We're of the neighborhood, local people. We are always available.
Susana is dedicated to guests the whole time.
We like to be with the guests in the evening with a cool drink, to share a bit of our country and get a bit of the country of origin of each guest.

This neighborhood beyond its charm has a very special thing - its authenticity. It's a neighborhood full of life with people who inhabit it and we have everything from the simplest to the fanciest. In a word - unique.

You should know all our photos are of things that are in the apartment or that you can see from there. We invite you to come and find all these small details and angles and to discover your own. That is the best way to explore Lisbon, at a slow pace, eyes wide open to little surprises...

I do not want to impose rules for your vacation stay, but still would like to make some notes.

The apartment is in a residential area and we have an excellent relationship with our neighbors, and so we would like to continue.
Please respect the neighbors.
Is always nice to find the apartment estimated.

In addition, the only rule I really want to impose is that you please have fun and enjoy our beautiful city. Spend a memorable vacation.
This is my greatest desire.

Thanks a lot

Very important NOTE:

In case it is found that smoked in the room we will remove the deposit an extra cleaning fee of 100€.
This is a serious matter.
The Guest that will use the house after they can have serious health problems because someone smoked in the house, (as has happened with previous guest with asma). Not only in health and the fact that a house smelling of tobacco is VERY unpleasant and very uncomfortable for everyone.

Susana was always available to answer questions, make suggestions, and serve as a very knowledgeable tour guide. The location was excellent, right in the heart of Lisbon destinations. Continental breakfasts were beautifully served and substantial. The Purple room itself was cute, quaint, but probably most appropriate for people who are comfortable sharing a bathroom.

Susana was very helpful, enthousiastic about Lisboa and very good to reach. She was very nice and gave me some good advice on the neighbourhood, places to eat and drink, and ofcourse on fado! The guesthouse is very well located on the edge of Alfama, within short walking distance of all you want! Breakfast was very nice. The purple room was very nice, and looks just like on the pictures. It is located on the back of the building, with the window onto the river Tejo and some of the big cruise ships, interesting! However, for me the street below was rather too busy and next time I would try and get a room that is on the inner side. Would definitely recommend this lovely place.

Susana and her Team made sure that we had a very comfortable and relaxing stay at her charming Airbnb. The building and interior emphasizing style and authenticity. Breakfast was rich and it lacked nothing at all. Besides, the location in the middle of this old urban district is ideal also due to the proximity of public transports. Great place !

A lovely place to be, clean, quiet and with a great view. The location is beautiful and very well connected to the rest of the city. Susana and all the staff were extremely nice and made me feel at home. Susana's tips on the city allowed me to enjoy the city as a local rather than as a tourist; I had exactly the holiday I was looking for.

We are a portuguese couple that at the beginning of our married life we have been fortunate to find a house in the center of Lisbon in a neighborhood that we only known the name - Alfama. We were welcomed with open arms by people who do not know us, but they treated us like family. The demonstrations of friendship and good neighborliness were daily ... were undoubtedly one of the best years of our lives. But the family was growing and the house no longer met the conditions for a biger family. We can't give away the house ... it's really special. Then came the idea, why do not provide this experience to others?

The reason why the house is called 'Cats House' is because when we lived there, we had five cats and lovingly to our neighbors and friends called it the House of Cats, and found it good to leave it with that name to remember the happy times live in Alfama and of course in memory of ours cats.

And the will to receive grew even more with this experience, and came "The Window of the World," and other people's homes and friends from a  friends who give us their homes to receive the same love and care we receive in our house ... and thus also come to be our as receive with the same desire and taste as I have received in the Cats House I hope you like and welcome.

I sincerely hope to those who choose to come to stay in Alfama, which are as happy as we were ...
