I could have stayed on that lovely veranda until the end of time. The location is ideal , right in the heart of Ribeiras and yet not at all noisy. The woman who helped me with check-in (Joanna) was outstanding in every way. She was quick to volunteer valuable information and is just genuinely sweet to deal with. The market is wonderful and very close by. When I checked-in I was told that there was no washing machine but that there were laundry facilities nearby. That was a bit of a challenge as I had been relying on that feature. Also apartment had no facial tissues in dispenser, no kitchen towel for dishes and only two paper towels remaining.

Its really bright and spotlessly clean and has everything needed for a perfect stay. We loved the authentic feel of the apartment and the terrace where we had our breakfast in the morning. It is also really quiet at night-time while being just a short distance from the centre of Porto. There is a great viewing point just down the street where you get a fabulous view overlooking Porto. Both Luisa and Ligia were really friendly and helpful with everything we needed.
