The high ceilings (3,30 m) , big windows to the river and decorated walls gives this apartment a very special brightness and charm. From the spacious and modernly decorated living room you can admire the river Tejo, its estuary known... as "Sea of Straw" due to the golden reflex of the sun in the water and the boats passing by.
Ideal for 6 but up to 10 people can sleep in it maintaining some comfort.

This flat is really beautiful and really trendy. It has recently been renovated so that everything is in a good condition. Right in the heart of the alfama you have a lovely view on the Tejo. The neighbourhood is lively and noisy, so sleep is an issue. The local travel ageny 'Heart and Soul' is very, very good, so thank you Monica!!
Unfortunately we booked this flat on Wimdu, which was a mistake because Wimdu secretely charches you 10 % on top of 'Heart and Soul'. And on top of that we had to pay a booking fee, which is another 10 %!!! So all in all we payed a bit more than 20 % on top of the 'Heart and Soul' bill, which is definitely too much.

Great apartment. Beautifully refurbished but also with a classical feel. Great walking distance to all sites in alfama and only 10 - 15 minutes from the main plazas. The staff were extremely helpful and answered all our questions and proved to be a great resource for a local authentic experience in the city.
Just like the photos!

My family and I have rented apartments all around Europe and the us. This was by far my favourite. It was beautiful, spacious, and spotlessly clean.the alfama district is a great location, and Goncalo our host was so helpful. This was an amazing experience. Lisbon is a beautiful city, with so many things to see. We didn't make it to everything we wanted to see so we will be back in Lisbon and we will stay Remedios 1 again. I would recommend this apartment to everyone.
Lovely apartment in the old alfama neighbourhood

Great location, close to the city centre and handy for the castle. Accomodation on the second floor may not suit people with limited mobility (lost of stairs). Apartment facilities were good. Service of the Heart & Soul Rep. was excellent - good advice on transport, restaurants etc.
Alfama neighborhood- very nice and close to everything you want

What a great service we received from Goncalo! He was there to welcome us, showed us everything we needed to know about the appartment and even gived us a map of the city and let us a notebook full of practical informations!From the begenning of our stay till the end, we felt like we had someone to rely on. The appartment was very nice, well decorated and clean, with a fully equiped kitchen (nothing we needed was missing or not in very good condition),dishwasher, washer/dryer.
The only thing we liked least was that the street was a bit noisy at night and we could ear some of it from two of three rooms.The noise was coming from people celebrating « Festas dos Santos populares » wich is going on only during the month of june.
To conclude, I realy felt like I was received at a good old friend's home, with delicate attentions in every room.
Oh! And the location was excellent! Very easy to access from the airport or bridges. By car, just follow the signs for city center and santa apolonia train station. It's behind it.
Loved our stay in Lisbon!

We absolutely loved our stay at our comfy apartment in the alfama district of Lisbon. The apartment is located in a very authentic Portuguese neighborhood where there are several restaurants and fado bars on the same street. The location could not be beat! The charming apartment was very spacious for 4 adults. We really did appreciate having 3 bathrooms too-- that was a big plus! Make sure to bring your own shampoo and soap for the showers (I brought mine, but others in our group didnt). The apartment is located on the 3rd floor-- us 3rd floor, which wasnt a problem for us, but could see where it would be a problem for those with mobility issues though. The kitchen is supplied with dish soap, laundry detergent, and dish towels. The washing machine/dryer was a big plus for us as well!
Heart and Soul Lisbon did a great job in communicating with me from my very first inquiry. Sandra was there to greet us when we arrived and promptly showed up when we left. She was wonderful!!! She gave us a map of the city and advice and tips on what to do, what to see and where to eat, etc.. We received our deposit the day we left. Everything with Heart and Soul went smoothly and with no problems whatsoever. If we ever went back to Lisbon again, I would definitely seek them out again. Would highly recommend staying at one of their apartments. Thanks again!

Nossa estadia na morada Remédios foi perfeita. A aparência externa do prédio é um pouco antiga e isso pode impressionar um pouco na chegada, mas o apartamento é amplo, cozinha bem equipada, banhos quentes com toalheiros elétricos para conforto. Quando estávamos lá, um pequeno problema elétrico na lâmpada da escada no primeiro e segundo andares dificultava o acesso ao apartamento à noite. O staf foi gentil e cuidadoso quanto às informações. Sem dúvida, voltaríamos a locar com a Heart & Soul em uma próxima ida à Lisboa. Só temos a agradecer.
Real Lisbon experience;)

Amazing place! All apartments from Heart and Soul are nicely decorated and in perfect conditions. The service is excellent and they really care about your stay. Eduardo and Paula Miranda, gave us the best recommendations of what to do and what to see there. The localization couldn't be better. I spent one week there and my kids felt like being at home. The best way to visit and really feel Lisbon. Don't stay anywhere else!
Oliveirinha Villa and apartment in Remedios Street
Left on 01/02/2013 for a stay in December 2012 | Mar Marinah
We were 5 young people in our late 20s looking for a fun and relaxing vacation in Lisbon. Fatima and Goncalo managed to provide us with wonderful accomodation! Oliveirinha Villa was perfect! It was spacious, well-maintained and had good facilities for us to use. The view from the third floor bedroom was breath-taking and it's easy to get around from the apartment to other parts of Lisbon.
Another high point for our trip was getting to know Fatima and Goncalo. Fatima was able to help us out when we needed a last minute accomodation due to some transportation issues and she and Goncalo went out of their way to work with us past their working hours and during Christmas Eve as well. For that, we are very grateful! The second apartment we stayed in at Remedios Street was lovely. It had so much character and charm and was again, very well maintained.
I would like to thank Heart&Soul; Lisbon for making our trip to Lisbon such a memorable one.
And I would definitely recommend anyone to trust them with good accomodation. =)
If i were to go back, trust me, i'll contact Heart&Soul; Lisbon again!

10 of us rented this apartment for a weekend and I have to say that while the pictures were absolutely beautiful, the apartment was even more beautiful. We felt like we were staying in a five star accommodation. It was super clean, the view was lovely, the rooms were more than gorgeous and comfortable. I am recommending this apartment to everyone I know and if I ever go back to Lisbon, I will stay here!!!

Fatima and Eduardo took great care of us, and we were sorry not to meet Fatima in person. She was a great help when we rented the apartment and gave all the information I requested. Eduardo met us on time at the apartment but had actually gone to pick us up at the nearby Metro station. Somehow, we missed him. He took great care to explain everything to us and to recommend restaurants, etc. The alfama is a wonderful area to stay because it's the oldest part of Lisbon and doesn't feel "touristy." We enjoyed meeting (and watching!) neighbors, and we loved the apartment---great sunrise views, and quite spacious for four of us. Very clean and comfortable. We couldn't get a picture on the TV (perhaps the aerial needs to be moved?) and couldn't get the DVD player to work, but no big deal. Not good for young children. Metro is a short walk away as are many major attractions. We enjoyed nearby the flea market, the castle, the other districts---everything. Unfortunately, our dollar wasn't strong against the Euro, so there were no great deals for us.

Estuvimos en el apartamento 6 amigas en el pasado mes de Julio. Es un lugar espectacular, además de que Fátima, que fue quien nos recibió, nos dio una magnífica bienvenida. Sin lugar a duda, repetiremos este año y volveremos a cualquiera de sus estancias, porque además de nuevas y confortables han conseguido darle la verdadera esencia de Lisboa. No lo dudéis, es un acierto el alojarse con ellos en Lisboa.

I loved to stay in this apartment! The best light of Lisboa, with this gorgeous view over the Tejo!
And so confortable! Very nice bathrooms, the bigger room is excellent, calm. The other 2 are ok.
Kitchen very well equipped, and I keep very good 'souvenirs' from the breakfast at this table, in a sunny June!
Definetly a good place to stay! Or to live!

We spent our first few days in Lisbon in this great place. We were two families with 3 teenage-adult kids, so the three bathrooms were ideal. The place is wonderful; it's up-to-date, well appointed and comfortable. And it's in a fabulous location - close to the train and shopping and right in the old historic part of town. Fatima is a wonderful hostess, she was helpful and informative about where to go and what to see.

good services: available, clean and efficient.
Very confortable and well equiped flat.
I was there with two childs, my wife, my parents and my brother. Large flat with 3 toillets and 3 bedrooms (+1 extra bed). Great decoration.
The single problem I have found was related with parking. No allowed parking nearby the flat.
Excelent location on alfama neighbourhood (historical) with easy connections to other touristic places in Lisbon.
Frühstück mit tollem Blick über den tiefblauen Tejo
Left on 09/28/2011 for a stay in September 2011 | Katja
Die Kommunikation klappte sehr gut, der Check inn verlief schnell, sehr nett und reibungslos. Die Wohnung ist weitläufig und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet - alles ist neu. Vom Wohnzimmer, dem sogenannten Masterbedroom und dem kleinen Schlafzimmer (letzteres geht vom Wohnzimmer ab) hat man einen ganz tollen Blick über den meerähnlichen Fluss und kann Kreuzfahrtschiffen beim an- und ablegen zusehen. Auf dem französischen Balkon standen wir nachmittags mit einer Tasse Tee und genossen den ausblick.
Der dritte Raum ist ebenfalls sehr geschmackvoll, man hat einen Blick über einen Hof. Die drei Bäder sind ein zusätzliches Plus, (zwei Bäder geräumig, eines klein, aber mit allem was man braucht, alle modern und sehr geschmackvoll, tolle Dusche). Einziger Kritikpunkt: die Kissen waren zwar ebenfalls neu aber für uns doch etwas zu sperrig und dick. Zum Glück gab es eine zahlreiche Kissenauswahl, so dass wir dann doch noch das richtige gefunden haben. Die Lage des apartments im alfama ist natürlich toll, nachts durch die Gassen zu laufen, draußen zu sitzen, Fisch zu essen, Wein zu trinken, das war ein Traum. Wir haben uns im alfama sehr sicher und gut aufgehoben gefühlt und die kleinen Gassen mit den Orangenbäumen geliebt. Am Wochenende, zumindenst im Sommer, kann es auch nachts auf der Straße etwas laut werden. Wir haben uns sehr gut erholt und würden diese Wohnung auf jeden Fall wieder buchen. Es war eine entspannende und luxuriöse Erfahrung.
