Five minutes for to arrive the wines caves . Across the Douro River are the famous Porto Wine 'Caves'.

This apartment is located on the waterside in the UNESCO World Heritage area.

This is a quiet apartment, very romantic and with great views (waterfront). Not balcony outside out , but the living-room , itself it's a balcony seeing the boats go up , come down ,see birds marines .... At downtown Oporto . Center Oporto.

Oporto is famous for its Port. Visit one of Oporto's most traditional establishments, for a tour and tasting. Oporto is so picturesque: with the old wine boats plying the river in front of you, and traditional port lodges behind, the medieval old-town clinging to the opposite bank and the skyline punctured by the Cathedral and numerous churches

The UNESCO protected old-town, a veritable tangle of 14th century lanes tumbles to the river and a beautifully restored waterfront. Tiny antiquated shops are everywhere, and, straddling the river itself, are six stunningly intricate bridges, one of which was designed by Gustav Eiffel.

Tiny antiquated shops are everywhere. Straddling the river itself are six stunningly intricate bridges, one of which was designed by Gustav Eiffel. Take the Eiffel designed bridge (D. Luis bridge) across the Douro to Gaia (5 minutes walk) and visit the Port Houses of Ferreira, Sandemans, Croft and Barros amongst others where you can take a guided trip and sample the delights of Portugal's oldest export.

Take a day trip up the river inland and see a country that hasn't changed that much for hundreds of years - trips leave ca 8am and return in the evening with lunch provided.

Green environment: Porto and North Portugal has so much to offer your family for short breaks and day trips. There are many activities available to keep you and your family busy. Visit the Serralves Museum art gallery, the Clerigos Tower, the Bookstore Lello (one of the best in world for its beauty), observe the contemporary architecture in the Casa da Musica, walk between caves and taste a Vinho do Porto . Take trip inland up Douro River and see a country that hasn't changed that much for hundreds of years. (The river cruises do not run from 31 October until March. However, trips between the bridges are available all year round). The boats leave at 8:00 am and return in the evening with lunch provided.

Be at one with nature in the green vineyards during the Spring and the Summer. See the wine harvest from the beginning of September until the middle of October.

Fun in family: Visit SEA LIFE. Swim or surf in the ocean or visit our park with 80 hectares. Here you can run, jog, play soccer, cycle or have a picnic where the countryside meets the sea. You can jog for 12 km from our flat to Parque da Cidade, following the river and the sea, each step offering a changing landscape at one with nature – an impressionist painters dream

Interesting cities near Oporto: : Visit :

Braga , Guimarães e Coimbra.

Braga with its Sanctuary of Bom Jesus, the City of new technologies. Guimarães known as the place where the country was born – 'The Cradle City'. Coimbra, the city of students with its famous university, and close by the Roman Empire ruins at Conimbriga.

The trains are fantastic and are not expensive ..

Ideal and comfortable!

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was exactly as advertised, even better than I expected. I really enjoyed sitting by the window and taking in the view of the Dom Luis I bridge and the comings and goings of the river traffic. The location was ideal, right on the Ribeira close to restaurants, sights, and a quick walk across the bridge to the port caves. The nearby funicular made it easy to get up and down the hill to the train station and upper parts of the city. The apartment was clean and in excellent working order. Fernando was extremely motivated to be sure we enjoyed our visit, and provided an abundance of information. He provided airport transfers at our request. I heartily recommend the apartment and would not hesitate to stay with Fernando again.

The Apt with a MILLION DOLLAR VIEW

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this quaint apartment for five nights and we wish it could be for a life time. The view is so fabulous for watching the Duro River and all the boats coming in and out of the port. We loved watching the birds, the locals along with tourist walking the board walk, and the sun coming up each morning. The bedrooms are at the back of the apartment and we were always isolated from any street noise. The location is ideal for tourist attraction and some of the better restaurants are around the corner. The apartment is furnished with everything you might need for an extended stay. And last but not least is Fernando. He is such a delight and charming, you will be in good hands having him as a contact while touring the country. He welcomed us with a bottle of port and snacks as he does with all his guests. He is one out of millions as well.

Great Location for family holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed a week in this very central apartment. Fernando was very helpful with travel information before and upon arrival. The apartment was perfect for our family despite being on the 3rd floor. It was comfortable and had everything we needed including a cot for our infant. The apartment is quiet despite being in the middle of everything and the views are fantastic from the large windows. Fernando made us feel very welcome with special local touches. Thanks again.

Wonderful Apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment was perfect. We spent 4 nights and wished it had been more. An amazing view, well furnished, comfortable and in the best location. Fernando could not have been a more gracious host - we were greeted with snacks and a bottle of Port, and he was able to pick us up at the train station and took us back when we when it was time to leave. This was the perfect location for walking around the best parts of the city and Fernando filled us in with so much historical information about Porto. I would definitely return if I ever go back to Porto.

Wonderful apartment, wonderful location

I stayed in this apartment several years ago and was more than pleased. The space is beautiful, the location is fantastic, and Fernando was extremely kind and helpful. I would definitely stay here again if I were to come back to Porto.

Perfect riverside location

  • 5 out of 5
This was our last stop on our 19 day Portugal trip, including Lisbon, Sintra, Estremoz, the and Douro Valley.

We drove from the Douro Valley and Fernando's Vista Allegre "cottage." Yes, twice with him! And we were so lucky. He is a wonderful and generous host. We left our rental car at the airport and he drove us to his city apartment with its wonderful location and easy access to all the old city restaurants, sights, the bridge across to the "caves," etc. The apartment was very comfortable and easy to live in although we only had breakfasts "at home"....unlike at the "cottage." We walked endlessly, out and about every day all day, took the funicular to the upper city, walked across the bridge, got lost and never did find what we were looking for but looked, saw, and breathed the city for four days and marvelled the ancient buildings. We bought stuff and ate wonderful seafood especially.

We were taking the high-speed train back to Lisbon to fly home the last day and Fernando was very gracious and generous to take us to the station instead of needing a taxi. He is exemplary. Before retiring, I was in the hospitality business for 18 successful years and well recognize the little but important things that he does to make his guests feel happy, well informed and safe. He is a prize. Debbie and David, U. S. Virgin Islands
