We had a fantastic weeks holiday staying in Paula's apartment with our one year old daughter.Paula was a brilliant hostess, great communication, checking that everything was okay. The apartment was exactly like the photos, lots of character and the views were amazing. It is worth noting that the stairs to the apartment and Alfama itself aren't for the unfit, it didn't put us off though! The location is central with lots to see, do and eat within walking distance. We had a lovely holiday, thank you again Paula for welcoming us!

My partner and I stayed here for a weekend to celebrate a birthday. From the moment we arrived we felt right at home. The place is a dream, cozy and with a beautiful view; exactly what we were looking for. Every bit of it had its specific charm. If it was not for the beautiful town; we could have spent all day just there. Paula is a wonderful host and she made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Lucky are those who can experience her hospitality. We hope we can come back soon.
