Things to do

-Douro River: Few places in the world yield a more soothing view than the banks of the famous Douro River. A walk down the front of this clean river lined with pretty buildings is a revitalising experience but what’s even more relaxing is taking a seat in one of the cafes there and taking in the riverside scenery with a chilled beverage or ice-cream in your hand. Boat tours along the river are available on demand.

-Monuments: From their holiday homes in Vila do Conde visitors won’t have to travel long to see the centuries-old buildings scattered in Porto. The Sao Francisco Church is one of these must-visit edifices. Construction of this building began in the 14th century and was finally completed in 1825. Famous for having an interior lavished in gold and its Baroque styling, this church stands out from the many others in the city. Another building worth taking the time to see is the Neo-classic Palacio da Bolsa which was opened in 1891.

-Cultural events: Porto hosts a number of annual events which tourists can join in. Summer visitors can participate in the Sao Joao Festival which takes place between 23rd and 24th of June. The highlight of this fete is stuffing oneself full of sardines, boiled potatoes and red wine. Queima das Fitas is a major event celebrated every spring.

-Estadio do Dragao: The Stadium of the Dragon is the fortress of one of Portugal’s most successful football clubs; FC Porto. Holidaymakers residing in Vila do Conde holiday rentals can take advantage of their proximity to this outstanding facility to take a tour of one of Europe’s finest football stadia and get pictures of them taken. They could also buy themselves tickets and get to watch FC Porto in action.

-Food and drink: A trip to Portugal always promises a treat for the taste buds and Porto does not disappoint in this regard. One of the eateries tourists will want to check out is the ODE Porto Wine House. This ambient establishment serves authentic Portuguese cuisine whose ingredients all come from farmers in the vicinity. The food is immaculately prepared and the wine is top of the range.

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.

The pool is brilliant and mostly peaceful. We rented a car but did not take it into Porto due to the traffic but the bus service was cheap and efficient. Last one 23.30 and taxis cheap also at 10 to 12 E. The beach is very beautiful and uncrowded with life guards as the waves can be very strong and dramatic. They stood close by and watched over our children as they played in the waves. You can rent little tents on the beach if you want to and there are several casual eating places in strolling distance(t he better one vista mar next road from the beach.) Had lots of towels and hot water. The beds were very comfortable with cotton sheets and rooms are quiet at night. The ground floor was safe for our young family. We had efficient service from the owner who gave us information about the local area. The apartment was liked by all three generations of our family. We didn't see any British families but our children played with Portuguese and Spanish kids on the beach. People are very friendly in Northern Portugal. The best meal was at a seafood restaurant about 20 mins walk south on the main road or boardwalk by the sea, excellent fish. Also ate very well in the centre of Porto market, clams*2, sardines*2 , wine 1L ,bass, bream, chips, pop, potatoes for under 30E. We would book again.

Our flight times were changed to a later departure time a few weeks before flying, so Filomena and her husband kindly picked us up from airport. As it was around midnight that we arrived at apartment Filomena had been kind enough to have got some provisions in for us , which we were really grateful for. The appartment was lovely, consisting of entrance hall, a comfortable lounge/ dining room, large well equipped kitchen ...both with doors leading to a large balcony. Bathroom with shower cubicle and another bathroom with shower over the bath. 2 good sized bedrooms . The master bedroom had a balcony . Wifi is available. The appartment is across the road from the beach with snack bars and restaurants near. Lidl is just down the road and the town is 10 min walk with bars and restaurants. There is a market on a Friday in the market place (opposite the tourist office) Filomena emailed me in the week to check everything was good and I knew if we did have a problem she would help. I would recommend this appartment to my family and friends and would stay there again. Thank you Filomena it was a pleasure to meet you.
