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 ..

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.

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

We spent 3 nights in this apartment located on the river with amazing views of the bridge, the board walk and the evening lights. Set amid the buzz of the city, the most picturesque part of Porto. Accommodation was simple, clean, with all the comfort needed.Greeted with a bottle of port, tray of bread, dips, provided with computer. Rental car parking nearby along the river. Best restaurants step away. Quiet sleep despite the nightlife, great ambiance. Loved it!

My family (two young daughters, my husband and I) stayed at this apartment for 3 nights in July 2013. It was perfect! Fernando was simply amazing. He provided us with so much information prior to our stay and was always quick to respond to any questions we had prior to our arrival. He even helped me figure out the bus schedule to get to our next location. He picked us up at the airport and drove us to the apartment and at the end of our stay kept our luggage in his car so we could wander around for our last few hours without dragging our bags with us and then he brought them to the bus depot for us. Talk about service! The apartment's location is PERFECT for exploring Porto. It is quiet and very well maintained. I would highly suggest you choose this apartment if you are planning a trip to Porto.

Our group of 4 (2 couples) loved staying her for 3 nights. It provided us the perfect ending to a wonderful 9-day Portugal vacation. This apartment was simply furnished but well outfitted and we couldn't have hoped for a better location - walking distance to many sites, restaurants and bars and we also couldn't get enough of the amazing view from the living room - day and night!

Icing on the cake was Fernando himself...so accommodating and gracious and a wealth of info. on all things Porto We would highly recommend a stay in this apartment and only wish we could have enjoyed a longer visit there ourselves - maybe next time! N. DeMerritt
