It is a beautiful apartment having a wonderful mix of original features and clever modernisation which maintains it's original charm. The large french windows open onto a little balcony which looks directly across the river to Porto. It is a magical view at any time of the day and particularly at night. Porto is a most beautiful city untouched by modernisation and this apartment is right in the centre of all the sights. As if all that was not good enough the most special thing about this apartment is the owner Ermelinda. She is the warmest kindest persom you could hope to meet. We were very late arriving and were worried that we were keeping her waiting so late at night. However when we arrived she welcomed us most warmly, in fact she had some port waiting for us and had even made a delicious cake for us. During our stay she was most helpful and obliging and from the very first contact she answered all messages straight away. We couldn't recommend this apartment highly enough. Marie & Brian

Everything you need is there and Maria is avert good hostess, very helpful. The flat is ideally situated for transport links into Porto. Afurada is a bustling but not too noisy village and it's surprising what can be found hidden among the streets. We found parking nearby and it's possible to park outside for loading and unloading.
