The space

Inside Lisbon's castle walls, where only a few hundreds have the privilege of living; on the first row of houses off the main fortification and with a magnificent river view, consider staying in a house where the light, breeze and views create for a peaceful and serene atmosphere to where to retreat and relax from a day on the town, or recharge by having a morning in.
This is as central and historical as it gets!
Renovated in February 2015 by Portuguese architects POLIGONO to guarantee the comfort of your stay. The house is located on the 4th floor, without lift. Its unique character is nested in the balance between history and modernity. The two-room apartment has been transformed into a single bedroom, maintaining however, its capacity to accommodate two couples. This alteration has given it a new feel, more ample and flooded with light.
On entry you will be immediately confronted with the living room's south facing light, river view, balcony and its wooden structure that constitutes the central element of the house. This living room is furnished with a comfortable sofa-bed, bean bags, cable tv and a dinning area. The snug bedroom, with its alluring bed and inviting castle view will make it hard to leave in the morning. The house has still a fully equipped kitchen and a small-sized but complete shower-room.

The neighbourhood

As the centre of the historic centre from which the city grew, the castle's location is perfect to reach most of the city's attractions and be a great headquarters for your stay. The newly inaugurated assisted path from Baixa together this the several new means of locomotion, as for example the tuk-tuks, make a return home (up the hill) a pleasant and easy experience.
In the near surroundings you will find most facilities you may require, small shops, groceries, cafes and restaurants. But anyway you are only 10 minutes on foot from several highly touristic and therefore well-served areas like Baixa and Alfama.

Within less than 10-20 minutes walking you may:
- The entrance to the Castle is just 150m from your door, it is worth the visit. Catch a magnificent sunset over the city or get acquainted with Lisbon from its most central and widest vantage point.
- Choose one of the several possibilities and stroll down the Castle's hill, get to know its surrounding intertwining streets and squares - Largo do Contador Mor, Rua de Santiago and use Largo dos Loios and Rua da Costa do Castelo for a more horizontal walk, you will find yourself at the end of a few miutes in one of these incredible areas of the city – Alfama, Mouraria, Graça, Alfama or Sé – each has its own particular identity.
- On Tuesdays and Saturdays in the morning Lisbon’s flee market is a short walk away, a great place for a less typical souvenir, at a bargain price. The Market is in the surrounding of the National Patheon and the Monastery of São Vicente de Fora, two outstanding monuments
- Visit 3 of Lisbon’s vantage points and experience 3 of its most precious views at Miradouro das Portas do Sol (6min), Miradouro de Santa Luzia (5min) and Miradouro da Graça (15min).
- Get losts down Alfama’s narrow roads and picturesque squares.
- Hop on the typical Tram 28, just in front of our door, and let yourself be led through several of Lisbon’s neighborhoods from Alfama, Baixa… up and down from Graça all the way to Campo de Ourique.
- You will find several means of transport from the indian inspired Tuk-Tuks to Segway rentals and hop-on-hop-off buses. Just make a pick!

Getting around

The house boasts a prime location, secluded enough not to feel the noise and unrest of the modern city, but just close enough and easily accessible to feel you can be anywhere in "no time". The new assisted path from Baixo do Castelo (a set of lifts and horizontal roads) has made the Castle must easier to reach on foot. If you arrive to Lisbon by plane there are several options, depending on speed you want to arrive, if you want to get to know the city on your way in and budget.
We suggest you take a taxi from the airport (of rush hour it should take longer than 20min and15-20€) or that you come in on bus 708 to Praça da Figueira from where you can walk, catch bus 703 or get a tuk-tuk or taki.
Our apartment is the perfect accommodation for those desiring a truly genuine Lisbon experience, with most attractions at walking distance and a great night sleep waiting every night at the Castle!

Our stay in Lisbon was great. The apartment is very nice and clean. It is well located and with a very nice view. We didn't have the chance to meet Ricardo but he took time to catch up on us news and was available for any question.

Brilliantly located with a great view of the castle from bed. A few low beams if you're over 6ft but otherwise easy to recommend

Just got back from a week at this lovely flat. Everything is as described & if you are looking for a central location that is quiet at night, this place is perfect! Some things are better than described. The light, airy & breezy feel, unobstructed castle & river views on both sides, larger than shown balcony with peaceful rustling trees & birdsong outside (including castle peacocks!). As mentioned in other comments, in order to enjoy these benefits the flat is a hilltop, top floor attic with restricted headroom in some parts, particularly the bathroom. However my husband is 6'1" & coped for a week! The flat was very clean, with a bottle of wine to welcome us (thank you!), a good mattress & we were able to check out later than advertised. Overall perfect for a couple who like it quiet, but with easy access to everything. In the local area there are 2 sets of lifts to get you up/down to the Baixa area, 1 opening directly into Pingo Doce supermarket, so it took only a few mins to get there or to downtown. Very minor 'niggles' were that post sales communication was a bit slow & there were a couple of small maintenance issues, but nothing that caused us any problems or concerns. Overall we would highly recommend this apartment & would definitely return!

We really enjoyed our stay at Ricardo's and Filipa's apartment. It is very cosy and the view of the castle is stunning. It was very kind of Ricardo to let us check out at lunch time and to let us leave our luggage in the apartment during the day before we flew home in the afternoon. We would definetely stay there again!!

Nice and cozy place in the quiet streets of Alfama, ideal for a couple. Steep climb so keep that in mind. The bathroom isn't great for tall people :) We arrived at midnight but Ricardo was very flexible and welcomed us.

Ricardo & Filipa User Profile

Hi, we are Filipa and Ricardo, a young couple happily together for eight years now. Five years ago we found a triplex, with which we fell completely in love.
We both work in marketing, love to gather with friends on weekends, dine out and experience all that Lisbon has new to offer; we love the sun here, the beach, travelling around, music festivals and concerts. We love music!
After all these years, as the family is about to grow, we felt the needed to find another "nest", but we definitely didn't want to let go this one!
So many memories, of the best five years of our lives, dozens of special moments spent in this house led us to keep the triplex to be able to share it with you all now.
The success we have had with sharing the triplex with all of you, and love we have felt in welcoming tourists to Lisbon and making them feel at home, making their visit memorable has together with having found this great duplex in Alfama made us expand to another house, in which we would be delighted to welcome you.
Come and share this experience. Start your visit in Lisbon with us!
