The Apartment is set at Calçada do Castelo Picão in the Madragoa quarter, an old and typical working class neighboorhood where fishermens and the fishwives used to live. There´s a Lisbon icon called "varina" that has its origin here, which gives the name to this apartment and is the fishwive with a basket full of fish on her head proclaiming sayings to sell the fish! Here we can find typical portuguese tascas to eat, but very close from here in Santos district we have two of the most emblematic nightlife places in Lisbon: Avenida 24 de Julho and Santos. Also in Janelas Verdes street we can find one of the most important museums in Lisbon: The Museum of Ancient Art. Just a few steps from the apartment crossing the charming Largo do Chafariz e das Janelas Verdes square, you will find this magnificent museum considered to be beyond any doubt the richest and most beautiful in Lisbon with important art collections from the 12th to the 19th century including collections of painting, sculpture, drawings and decorative arts, mostly European and Oriental, and also representing the relationships established between Europe and East following the voyages of discovery began in the fifteenth century that Portugal was a pioneer nation. Next to the museum a peaceful belvedere with insights and viewpoint to the river, Lisbon’s harbour and the 25th April Bridge. Here we highly recommend the ”le chat” cafe esplanade next to this gazebo, one of the best esplanades for sure in Lisbon with stunning views and a modern design.
Going eastwards trough the Janelas Verdes street you find yourself in Santos, the design district and also where we can find the hottest nightspots in Lisbon such as Kapital, Kremlin, or Plateau discothèques among others. Crossing the railway line and already by the riverside you will find open spaces, bicycle and race lanes, the Port of Lisbon and even day and night bars with the best terraces of Lisbon on the Tejo waterfront, as is the case of the Meninos do Rio. On the opposite side and climbing the Lisbon's typical streets from the apartment and heading north, we will find Lapa, a charming and aristocratic neighbourhood. Little by little we perceive the change: from popular, working-class streets with a Renaissance feel down below, we now stroll through the diplomatic and aristocratic air of the Lapa district where large single family mansions, small palaces and gardens surrounded by embassies were built. This must be the "safest area in Lisbon for sure!
The area is well served and connected with public transportation: the bus 727 takes you to the city centre in just 15 minutes and the trains in Santos can take you to Belém, or even outside Lisbon to Estoril and Cascais.

QUINTINHA TERRACE - Sunny apartment next to bairro alto

The apartment was very good for our stay - big rooms and nice outdoor terrace at the back. It is well equipped and fairly quiet for the location. Jorge´s colleague met us when we arrived.

Principe Real I up to 2 guests with king size bed

Die Unterkunft war sehr toll - eine sehr schöne, geräumige und gepflegte Altbauwohnung mitten in der Lissabonner Altstadt mit guten Anbindungen zur Metro, Bus und Innenstadt. Wir waren schon traurig, wieder abreisen zu müssen.

ALFAMA S. RAFAEL 4 - low budget and great location

L'appartamento si trova in un angolo molto caratteristico di Lisbona ed è consigliabile per una coppia giovane amante della vita notturna dato che nella piazzetta adiacente c'è un ristorante in cui si canta il fado fino a tardi.Rumoroso.

Alfama S. Rafael 2, great location

Many will tell you that Alfama is a dangerous area, but it is not true, we were very good and we felt surrounded with sympathy and affection. The apartment is also properly close to St. Apolonia station, so it's easy to move around by undeground or rail (rail is very useful if you also want to visit Sintra or Parque des Nacioes District) The apartment directly faces a small square where there is a lovely restaurant (where they play fado every night) so you do not get bored! The house was a nest for two, very clean and equipped with what was necessary. Jorge was there to help us with anything we could need. Not recommended for those with mobility problems, there are two sets of stairs to climb and no elevator, the building is old but very well preserved. Fascinating and charming place to stay.
