Alfama-Lisbon, The Window of The World
“The Window of the World” is located in the very heart of Alfama, Lisbon’s most emblematic district.
Alfama is a kind of village in a big city, full of narrow streets, small squares, churches and ancient houses.
Many people in this neighborhood have lived here their whole life and have a strong sense of community.
Alfama has influenced poets and novelists, musicians and movie directors, and it’s crowded of traditional Fado houses. The district is of unbelievable beauty, and it must be experienced to be fully appreciated. Alfama is charismatic and unique, untouched by globalization.
“The window of the world” apartment has been completely renewed at the end of 2011.
It is a duplex of around 80 sq.m, located on the 3rd and 4th floor and it can host up to 6 people.
At the entrance level there are the kitchen, the dining room, a bathroom with shower and a living room with a sofa bed for two people. Upstairs there is a large suite with a fully equipped bathroom (with a shower cabin and hydromassage) and one sofa bed for two people. Towels and bed linen are included.
'The Window To The World' is there to give you a pleasant staying with all comfort and it is very close to the Museum of Fado, the Pantheon, and a few meters from the railway station of Santa Apolonia and the Lisbon Metro, shopping, cafes, restaurants, fado houses, bars, flea market, museums, galleries art, craft shops…
To make it short: this house is right in the center of your perfect staying and it will open for you…its window on the world!
NOTE-If this house does not have the dates you want we have other homes that may be available.

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.
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
Very important NOTE:
NO SMOKING HOUSE
In case it is found that smoked in the house we will remove the deposit an extra cleaning fee of 100€.
This is a serious matter, the Guest that will use the house then they can have serious health problems because of term smoked in the house, (as has happened with previous guest with asma). Not only in health and the fact that a house smelling of tobacco is VERY unpleasant and very uncomfortable.
We had a lovely stay in Lisbon at 'Window to the World'. Susana greeted us warmly and enthusiastically told us about Lisbon and the wonderful Alfama neighbourhood.
The apartment was perfect for our stay. Comfortable, very well equipped, spacious and in a fantastic location. Located on the third floor means it is quiet and private (and you only have to carry your luggage up the stairs once, so it's well worth it!). The bed was very comfortable and we slept well each night we were there. The apartment also has two bathrooms and the showers are great. It also comes with its own clothesline out the window so you can hang out your washing in true Lisbon style.
And of course Alfama is the best neighbourhood to stay in to experience Lisbon!
Thanks Susana for making us feel so welcome. We highly recommend you as a host and the 'Window to the World' as a great place to stay!
Nous avons adoré Lisbonne. Appartement très bien situé au coeur d' Alfama, acceuil parfait avec toutes les informations et recommandations pour les visites aux alentours. Ma fille de 12 ans a beaucoup aimé ce séjour, vie de quartier, petites boutiques, poulet braisé et petit bar sur la placette en bas de l'appartement. Milles merci à Susana pour tout. Je recommande chaleureusement!
Der Aufenthalt in Lissabon war wirklich toll. Nicht zuletzt durch die super Lage der tollen Wohnung. Das Zetrum ist gut zu Fuß in 10 Minuten erreichbar. Kleine Supermärkte, Cafés und öffentlich Verkehrsmittel sind auch in unmittelbarer Nähe.
Durch die zentrale Lage ist es Nachts etwas laut, aber dass war uns vorher bewusst.
Susana ist unkompliziert, freundlich und sehr gut erreichbar.
Susana was very insightful in describing the opportunities offered by the city. The apartment was exactly as described.
As a point of attention, the stairs are very narrow so you must be willing to some sort of a climbing :)
We had a very pleasant stay in Lisbon and willing to come back in the future
Unser Fazit fällt absolut positiv aus!
Die Wohnung war wie beschrieben sehr geräumig und mit allem ausgestattet, was was wir für unseren Aufenthalt benötigt haben. Die beiden Bäder waren perfekt, um sich am Morgen/Abend im Bad nicht in die Quere zu kommen ;-)
Zudem war die Lage der Wohnung perfekt, um die Stadt zu erkunden. Viele der schönsten Aussichtspunkte der Stadt waren fußläufig zu erreichen, zudem gab es unweit der Wohnung alles (Bäcker, Schlachterei, Cafes, Restaurants, etc.), was man sich wünscht.
Weiter haben wir uns sehr über die Kommunkation mit Susana gefreut. Sie hat uns stets geholfen, wenn wir mal ein Anliegen hatten, zudem gab es den einen oder anderen Tipp, den wir gerne entgegen genommen und in die Tat umgesetzt haben.
Wenn wir uns wieder für Lissabon entscheiden sollten, werden wir auf jeden Fall wieder versuchen, diese Wohnung zu bekommen!
We really enjoyed our stay in Lissabon. The flat is right in Alfama, you can hear the music from the streets, hear the laughter and smell the sardines from the barbecue outside. Susana was very friendly, she lives close by and is always there, if you have a question or need some help.
Thank you Susana for allowing people the opportunity to stay in such a lovely apartment. Situated in a great area, the apartment is close to lots of bars and restaurants, and is only a short walk to trams, buses and the metro. Alfalfa is a very special place, people watching in the square with a jug of sangria is a must. The apartment itself was perfect, very clean, quiet at night, and has a very homely feeling. Susana was a great host, meeting us to give us the keys at 8pm and provide us with some local recommendations. Would stay here again given the opportunity.

Om værten, Susana
We are a portuguese couple that at the beginning of our married life we have been fortunate to find a house in the center of Lisbon in a neighborhood that we only known the name - Alfama. We were welcomed with open arms by people who do not know us, but they treated us like family. The demonstrations of friendship and good neighborliness were daily ... were undoubtedly one of the best years of our lives. But the family was growing and the house no longer met the conditions for a biger family. We can't give away the house ... it's really special. Then came the idea, why do not provide this experience to others?
The reason why the house is called 'Cats House' is because when we lived there, we had five cats and lovingly to our neighbors and friends called it the House of Cats, and found it good to leave it with that name to remember the happy times live in Alfama and of course in memory of ours cats.
And the will to receive grew even more with this experience, and came "The Window of the World," and other people's homes and friends from a friends who give us their homes to receive the same love and care we receive in our house ... and thus also come to be our as well ...to receive with the same desire and taste as I have received in the Cats House I hope you like and welcome.
I sincerely hope to those who choose to come to stay in Alfama, which are as happy as we were ...
Susana and João
