Alfama Verde · Alfama T.M. Green House With a View
Located moments away from the 800-year-old Lisbon Cathedral and the iconic Castle of St. George this hip flat is set in the heart of the old town and walking distance to two undergrounds stations as well as the notorious #28 streetcar that climbs the hills of Lisbon in a classic fashion. The neighbourhood is known as "Alfama" where you will find "Terreiro do Paço" - one of Europe's largest squares from where the Portuguese sailors set ship centuries ago.
One of the best things about this area is that you can walk pretty much everywhere! In any case, there are a lot of options with regards to public transport. A 5-minute walk will get you to "Rossio" from where you can catch the train to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the village of "Sintra". A longer walk (about 15m) will get you to "Cais do Sodré" from where you can get to several beaches in a heartbeat. If it's nightlife you're looking for then "Bairro Alto" is also a small walk away!
The apartment has cable TV, wireless high-speed internet and also heaters and fans!
Guests have total access to the apartment.
I or a local friend of mine will be at the apartment waiting for you to check you in and welcome you to Lisbon. If you need any tips on what to do, to see and where to eat I’ll also be more than happy to assist you!
There are plenty of mini-markets around where you can do your food shopping in case you want to cook at home. There are also some fantastic specialized wine shops in case you want to try the finest Portuguese wines.
Restaurants and pastry shops (if you haven't tried our local pastries then you're missing out!) can be found abundantly with a good price range. For all of this and a lot more, welcome to Alfama!
You can use the taxi service or Uber takes about 20 minutes from the airport to the apartment and on average has a cost of € 15.
By public transportation, take the red line to Alameda, change to the green line to Martim Moniz and take Tram 28 that stops exactly on the street where the apartment is.

Frequently asked questions for this offer
What happens after I make a reservation?
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
What is the standard furnishing of flats?
All the apartments on offer on Flatio must meet certain standards. We require fully furnished and equipped ones, dishes, cutlery and internet connection included.
What is a medium-term rent?
The duration of a medium-term rent is usually 1 to 12 months. Most of the landlords offer long-term rents or rents for just a few days, therefore getting a medium-term rent without Flatio is not that easy.
Can I go through the contract before I make a reservation of the housing?
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.
Can I see my chosen accommodation in person before I sign the lease agreement?
Your time is precious. That's why we've added a virtual tour option to our platform so you can see some of the rentals listed on Flatio from the comfort of your own home.
If a virtual tour isn't available for the accommodation you've chosen, you can contact the landlord and ask them if they're willing to give you a personal tour of the rental unit.
If you move in and find that the rented accommodation doesn't match the information on Flatio at the time the reservation request was sent to the landlord, you can withdraw from the lease agreement under certain circumstances explained in this article in our help center.
Also, under our "secure move-in" policy, we'll assist you with moving to an alternative accommodation if you report within a certain period of time that the rental unit doesn't match the ad and the landlord doesn't fix the problem immediately. You can read the details in our help center.
How can I pay?
On Flatio, you have a variety of payment methods to choose from. You can use your card, payment gateway or bank transfer. Just pick the one which suits you the most.
How can I cancel my reservation?
How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancelation policy).
