It is well located within easy walking distance of all the main attractions. Also as it is close to river and the bridge it is convenient for walking across to Gaia and the Port Houses.

Our apartment was light, bright and airy with lots of space. Our host was excellent even arranging a taxi to collect us at the airport. The location could not have been bettered with fantastic bars and restaurants on our doorstep. The area felt truly authentic and full of charm with really friendly locals. All in all we had one of our best city breaks ever. We loved Lisbon but Porto was even better.
