Apartment in Alfama - Lisbon

Allow yourself to stay in Lisbon and live like a local.

In the House of Cats happens. It is located in a privileged area in the heart of Lisbon - Alfama.

This is the oldest neighborhood, more authentic, more lively, original and one of the most typical of Lisbon. Alfama is unique, resembling a small village in the center of a great metropolis where people meet and greet every day there is a great complicity between the neighbors.

It is known for its restaurants and fado houses, as well as the Popular Saints celebrations, especially on the night of St. Anthony, from 12 to 13 June.

The Cats House date of 1935, and although small, is remodeled with all the comfort and full of the spirit that breathes in the Lisbon area. Every detail has been designed with much love and provide for an unforgettable stay and typically Portuguese.

The Cats House is very sunny and consists of a dining room with seating for 4, one double bedroom, den, kitchen and a living room that accommodates two people. The kitchen has all the usual appliances and utensils, the bathroom with what is necessary for their welfare, towels and bed linen are included. So the House of Cats is prepared to provide a pleasant and full of comfort.

This home has had (since we do this) several improvements in the area of comfort and decoration ... is now more beautiful and comfortable ... example is that now have an entirely new kitchen, we have not had the opportunity to take good pictures to illustrate ...

The house has no central heating (in Portugal is rare) but the house has mobile heaters for winter and fans for summer.

The Cats House is situated very close to the viewpoint of the Portas do Sol, the Castle of São Jorge, the Pantheon, the Fado Museum, being a few meters of transport, shops, cafes, restaurants, fado houses, bars, flea market , museums, art galleries, craft shops ... is in the center of your stay perfect.

NOTE-If this house does not have the dates you want we have other homes that may be available.
House rules
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.

Please whenever you leave the house for you visit the city or upon checkout please check if the lights, heaters (for those who stay in the winter) and fans (for those who stay in the winter) and all electrical appliances that can be used (coffee machine, stove, towel rails ...) that are turned off.

Not only because it is a matter of environmental conscience are saving energy the the World but mostly to avoid accidents disproportionate since they have turned on without proper surveillance and hours without proper use ...

I apologize for asking this, but unfortunately it is a recurring situation that can ruin your holidays and create unpleasant episodes.

Any questions I am always available ...

Thanks and have an excellent stay
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

The flat in Alfama was very cosy. Susana was really helpfull in terms of finding nice restaurants and having a good time. The flat was very clean and equiped in a quite usefull way. What we didn´t like so much was the thing that the flat was quite small, even for two, and made for really small people. When you are taller than 1,80 m it´s dificult (doors, bed, shower, roomsize). And we really would love to have had the indicated balcony, but there wasn´t. I guess that in Portugal a french window is called balcony.
But anyway, good centrical situated, good working WIFI, clean and equiped in a usefull way with much love.

Susana's extraordinary. Very friendly, smiling and always available when needed.
Apartment cozy and very consistent with the description, very well placed in the historical center of the city. It is very easy to radiate in the city for its location.
We had a great weekend.

The apartment is very nicely furnished, everything is available, what you need. The location is great, right in the historic center of Lisbon, and (still) very quiet. Susana is very very helpful and friendly. The only drawback to the apartment: the shower is quite small and the bed is shorter than a standard bed (approximately 1.90 m). For large and / or broader guests so not so good. Otherwise, everything top!

We had a great time in Lisbon ! The Cats House is very cute, it's obvious that Susana and Joao have paid attention to details so that you feel just like at home, and you do ! When you have visited the city all day, what a pleasure to come back in "your" home to rest ! And it's perfectly located : near the station, the metro, the historic tram 28, and you can also easily reach a large part of the city center on foot. Above all, Susana is a perfect host, always available to give tips and help if you neef id ! Thank you ! Our holidays were a sucess !

Hi Susanne, Thanx for your hospitality. We had a great time and enjoyed Lissabon. Unfortunality, our bag was stolen from the locker in the station. We put it there on our last day after checking out your great appartment. I think it happens more tourist. So please give your next geasts that warning. Don't use the locker at the apolonia station. We had to catch the plane zo we couldn't go to the police. Besides this, we had a great time! Thank you.
