With labyrinthine cobblestone streets beckoning to be explored and wonderful views over the glittering Tagus, authentic Alfama is undeniably one of Lisbon’s most captivating bairros. Offering all the comforts of modern living whilst retaining the historic charm of the original building, these nine apartments enjoy a superb setting with wonderful city and river views.

Nestled on a cobbled street lined with colourful facades, a Pombaline building is being transformed into an intimate collection of renovated nine apartments. Respecting the aesthetic and history of the neighbourhood, the original Pombaline facade and detailed wrought iron balconies will be beautifully rejuvenated.

From this sunny, tranquil spot, the Tagus river and the cathedral are a few minutes away on foot as well as a good selection of shops and restaurants, some of which have live fado music events too.

The properties

Whilst preserving some of the historic elements such as the painted and moulded ceilings, the beautiful azulejos and the 19th-century murals on the walls, the apartments will be renovated so that offer the highest standards of modern comfort with parquet flooring, bathrooms finished with Lioz stone and sleek kitchens with integrated appliances. These light-filled properties have high ceilings with wooden details and most have French doors opening up to south-facing balconies - perfect for enjoying a coffee outside under Lisbon’s 300 days of yearly sunshine whilst taking in the wonderful views over the city and the Tagus beyond.
