Fantastic Stay

5 of 5
Thank you for a wonderful stay. The apartment was very clean and tidy and provided everything we needed. The location was fantastic (as was Porto). Luis and the team in the bakery were lovely people and could not have been more welcoming. We were missing it all as soon as we left.

Just right

5 of 5
The property is in the perfect location, easy to get to all the places to see in Porto. The property is bigger than I imagined, it looks smaller in the photos, but it is still very cute. It had everything one would need for a short getaway. The owners were lovely, Maria very informative prior to the trip and Rui was so kind and informative on our arrival.
