The ONLY place to stay when visiting Porto!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this Porto apartment for four weeks in October 2016. It was a wonderfully located and comfortable base to explore Porto and I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Porto.

Booking Process: Ana, Marcelo and Marcelo Jnr were wonderful to deal with and replied promptly to all email questions. They helped me to carry my luggage upstairs and left a welcome parcel of milk, juice, bread, jam, bottled water and, of course, some lovely Port wine.

Location: This is a wonderful apartment to stay in whilst visiting Porto and Porto is a wonderful city for touring as it is small enough to navigate by foot. The apartment is located across the river from Porto, in Vila Nova de Gaia, but this affords spectacular views across to the pretty Ribeira area of Porto. This is especially delightful at night when the historic center is lit up to reveal all of its beauty. The apartment is located within easy walking distance of all the major tourist sights as well as cafes, restaurants and shops. In fact, one of our best dining experiences was at the restaurant immediately below the apartment on the ground floor, Sao Goncalo!

Apartment: The apartment is on the fourth floor of the building (no lift but that wasn't any problem) and has a spectacular wide frontage with views across the Douro river from the two sets of double-glass doors and two windows. This allows light to flood into the main living area and also allows for spectacular views across to Porto. The main double bed is comfortable and located off to the side of the main living area but this was wonderful as I would sometimes lie on the bed in the afternoon to read my book with the beautiful view as a back drop. The bathroom is compact, clean and modern. There is a washing machine and clothes-drying rack/pegs located on a balcony just off the second bedroom and this was a great asset. There is also a small room located just near the front door and this was a very handy place to store luggage and other items. All linen is provided and these were of a high quality. The apartment was very comfortable for my four-week stay!

Charming views of Porto Portugal

  • 4 of 5

Great Flat. Great location. Plenty of room for my husband and I, we're so glad we stayed there. It has everything you may need. One thing to consider is the noise. Since you are along the river it is a little noisy, but that's city life. Probably could use some black out curtains cause it is quite bright. But other then that it was great. It's on the 3rd floor so if you have issues with stairs it may not be right for you. The rentors were VERY helpful and welcoming. A great stay to experience Porto :)

Owner's Response: Hello Molly, Thank you for your kind review. We are very surprised you didn´t see that in each window there´s a extremely visible black out. This would have allow you to sleep in deep darkness. If the brightness bothered you, you should have questioned us during your stay. Concerning the stairs, we inform that in the historic center buildings, where the arquitecture ancient and preserved, there is no chance to have a lift whether you are on a 2nd, 3rd or 5th floor. About the noise you made reference to, we are sure it´s very questionable. In another listing website, where we have more than 60, five star reviews, there´s several of them making reference to quietness and even a host saying he slept windows opened. So, the "noise" is a question of personal perception...Regards!

Un séjour très agréable dans cet appartement

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons habité l'appartement pendant une semaine au mois de juillet 2015 et nous avons été entièrement satisfaits. Les propriétaires sont très gentils et nous ont donné plein d'informations utiles sur Porto. Ana, la femme du propriétaire vous écrira dans un français impeccable. Nous avons connu de légers problèmes pendant notre séjour avec la porte d'entrée principale et les propriétaires ont corrigé rapidement le problème. La description faite sur le site internet est conforme à la réalité. L'appartement est très beau, bien équipé et très propre. La vue est très belle sur le Douro et vous pourrez y voir de beaux levers er couchers de soleil. Très bien situé face au Douro, vous trouverez de nombreux et bons restaurants situés à quelques minutes de marche de l'appartement. En plus, l'arrêt d'autobus et les visites des chais de Porto sont à quelques minutes de marche. Les activités et visites à faire à Porto sont nombreuses. Bref, nous avons bien aimé notre séjour dans cet appartement.

Uitzicht op Porto

  • 4 of 5

Eenvoudig pand met rare indeling en een schitterend uitzicht op Porto.

Over de brug ben je in 5 minuten in de stad. Je zit tussen de Port-huizen.

Wij hadden veel regen en het werd een beetje klam in de woning.

Prima verblijf om Porto te bekijken.

Parkeergarage is om de hoek. Er is niet altijd plek. Grotere parkeergarage is een paar honderd meter verder.
