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!

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.
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.
Our hostess, Susana, was very pleasant, gave us suggestions and answered our questions. The apartment is modern and well furnished. The bed was quite comfortable. We liked having the two bathrooms and the easy-to-use washing machine. We loved being in the Alfama neighborhood with the friendly people, local cafes and street musicians. I would definitely recommend this apartment with the note that there are lots of stairs to climb.
Susana is wonderful and the Alfama location is perfect. Having two bathrooms was very convenient and there was enough closet space and drawers to make us feel at home. But if you are not into climbing stairs this might not be your best choice.
Really a 5* apartment!!
Suzanna’s hospitality was super an she gave us a lot of interesting tips about the culture, restaurants and neighborhood. You can see and feel that she loves her country and city by the way she talks about it! She is honest,nice to talk to, open minded and has her heart on the right place. The apartment is very spacious and cute. Nicely decorated! Nice and clean bathroom(s) and kitchen. Clean sheets and towels. The bed is cozy but very comfortable.
In the morning you can have breakfast in the sun while sitting in front of the mini balcony on a pouf.
Suzanne, we will come back !!!
Lisbon is awesome! Susana was a great host, made it easy when we arrived, and gave us a few recommendations on what to do and where to eat.
The apartment is really cool, with enough space for the few nights we've spent there. It's nicely decorated and in a great neighborhood. There's a few very good restaurants and bars at walking distance.
I can only recommend Susana and her apartment to anybody that would like to go to Lisbon.

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 ...
