Interaction with guests
We just want that our guests have a good time in "Lisboa" and experience an authentic feel in "Alfama", by staying in our Traditional Family House. We live close by so we are able to assist and make your stay comfortable.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD: “ALFAMA" is filled with flowers, colorful clothes drying in the windows, little and winding streets. Plenty of cafes, local markets, bars and restaurants can be found in the surrounding area.
June is the main month of the traditional festivities with music, dance and roasted sardines on the streets, but they also extended through the Summer with "Fado", Jazz and other musical events.
From the Traditional Family House we can go pretty much everywhere by walk or by public transports. It`s 5-minute walk from the Metro and "Santa Apolónia" Train Station, the Yellow Bus and the famous 28 Tram.
We can get both City Center and "Rossio" and "Cais do Sodré" Train Stations in 20 minutes walking. From "Cais Sodré" we go to the sunny beaches such as "Oeiras", "Cascais" and Estoril". From “Rossio” we can visit the famous " Sintra" Village -Unesco World Heritage.
We also advise guests to take the boat or the bus and visit our favourite beaches, located on the other side of "Tejo" River ("Costa da Caparica", "Sesimbra" and “Setúbal”). The City of "Setúbal" has long blue beaches just close to the green "Arrábida Natural Park".
