Great location! Clean, cosy apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Ermelinda was a gracious host and provided a welcoming gift (a cake and Port wine). Communication with her was quick and helpful. The whole experience was excellent and would recommend the property to anyone.

Amelia apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very well situated and suited my daughter and me perfectly for four days. Ermelinda, the owner, is a lovely person who welcomed us with port and a delicious homemade cake. The area was not too busy and certainly far preferable to staying in the busier Porto. Just be aware that this is a studio apartment which is not entirely clear from the website.

Thank you, Ermilinda.

Nice apartment in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice apartment with a beautiful view of the river Douro. A short walk across the bridge gets you to the waterfront with all the action and to the sites of Porto. Our host was lovely, and even baked us a delicious homemade cake and left us some port for us to enjoy. She is committed to providing you with the best experience possible. It would be ideal for a couple, although we stayed there with our daughter and that was fine as well. It's also quiet at night, which is a big plus when you are traveling.

Semaine de rêve sur le bord du Douro

  • 4 of 5

Appartement conforme à l'annonce. Très bel accueil de la part de la propriétaire Ermelinda. Elle nous a reçus avec du porto et un délicieux gâteau. Belle vue, des fenêtres de l'appartement, de la ville de Porto. Très bien situé, près des chais des différents producteurs de porto. Un parking payant est disponible à proximité. Nous avons beaucoup aimé. Seul irritant: le signal wifi faible sinon inexistant dans l'appartement. Nous devions aller dans le corridor. Nous y retournerions toutefois sans hésiter.

Odeur nauseabonde

  • 3 of 5

Appartement bien situé au bord du fleuve Douro, sur le meme quai que les lieux de degustation de Porto.

Dommage que nous ayons du subir en permanence l'odeur d'egout dans le hall d'entrée et dans l'appartement.

The centenary building is located in Gaia riverside overlooking the Douro River and Ribeira do Porto. Located next to the cellars of Porto wine and Customs and Freixo marinas is an ideal location for all tourists who wish to know and enjoy the wonderful cities of Porto and Gaia.

With the beach cleaners just 5 km is easy to enjoy a good day of sun.

If your interest also pass the nightlife of these cities, 100 meters from the building is one of the best areas of bars and restaurants in the two cities (Cais de Gaia and Ribeira do Porto).

It is an area with easy pedestrian access to the most beautiful and emblematic monuments of the city of Porto and Gaia: the Stock Exchange Palace, S. church Francisco, Ferreira Borges market, sé cathedral, Serra do Pilar ...
