This is what you would expect from a top hotel! But it is not in a hotel. It is a beautiful apartment with an incredible view of the river and the port wineries. Isabel is quite a host, starting from the time we rent the apartment to the time we leave. And on top of that nice touches like top of the line soap, port wine and Pasteis de Nata that are welcoming us when we check in. Super nice kitchen, nice bathroom and very comfortable bed. Really, there is everything you need to enjoy Porto: Walking distance from a grocery store and a very good restaurant (Intrigo) and 10 min to the centre of town. Clearly, I am highly recommending this place for couples who want to enjoy the beautiful city of Porto. If I could more than five stars, I would do it. Book. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Isabel!
The apartment was well located in Vila Nova de Gaia. Both bedrooms were comfortable with beautiful view of the Ponte Luis I over the river Douro from the terrace leading from the double bedroom. We were met at the apartment by Maria in the evening and she was able to show us the apartment and tell us the necessary arrangements for leaving. The apartment itself was well equipped with a convenient place to park at the rear of the apartment. There is also a bus stop a five minute walk from the apartment with access to both the waterfront of Vila Nova de Gaia and Porto itself. The taxi fare from the river front of Vila Nova de Gaia was reasonable, there are plenty of bars and restaurants to chose from and also all the port cellars which you can tour and sample the different ports. The views from this side across to the Porto side are well worth viewing, particularly with coffee (or wine) and the local custard tarts (Pastel de nata).
