He was very thoughtful and generous to leave us a bottles of red and white wine from Douro which was a treat as well as other basic requirements. The online description of the property is accurate. Shops and restaurants are all within easy reach and 2 cafes within walking distance for breakfast etc... I would most certainly go here again and highly recommend it. Thanks once again Ricardo we had a lovely time.

Muy cerca del metro para visitar Oporto. La ventaja de tener plaza de parking en el mismo edificio. Supermercados relativamente cerca. Televisión muy antigua. Nos defraudo un poco la zona en la que se encuentra. Tienes la gran ventaja de tener playa y paseo marítimo muy cerca, pero fuera de eso, la zona no es muy agradable para pasear.
