Lovely, well equipped apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 nights in this lovely, bright apartment situated across from the Balhao market and around the corner from the metro stop. We were able to walk to most sites, and were able to prepare some meals in the well stocked kitchen. (Especially because the market and grocery stores were close by). On our arrival, we were met by Joao’s daughter Lidia, who was very helpful and showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment and it’s appliances. There was lots of good tourism information, books to read, and there was even a bottle of port! The apartment was perfect for 2, and could accommodate 4, but probably only for short stays. If and when we return to Porto, I know where we will want to stay! Thank you Joao and Lidia!

Lovely Porto

  • 1 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Porto and staying in your lovely apartment.A fantastic location with a fruit and veg market just across the street. The apartment was extremely clean with all amenities from washing machine to dishwasher. Even an oven for the odd nights we cooked in.It was easy to get from the airport to the apartment with the metro just a short walk away. We were greeted by the owner’s daughter who was extremely helpful and showed up around the apartment.

Apartment was on the small side but met our needs. It was clean and easy to get to by taxi.

  • 5 of 5

Communication with owners was not great. No phone number was given prior to arrival and we waited on the street for 20-30 minutes before Lidia contacted us to say she would be an hour late. Not sure what we would've done without a phone. After she met us everything was exceptional. She took care of everything and stayed in touch. We had a great time in Porto. Restaurants and shops nearby and market across the street. Metro stop just out the door and lots to see and do.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in this delightful apartment. It is perfectly situated, within walking distance of all the main districts in the city center. It is directly over the road from the Bolhao market which is great for fresh fruit, vegetables, seafood, meat, nata(custard tarts) and wine, There are several supermarkets and traditional bakery/grocery stores nearby for anything else you might need. There are numerous cheap restaurants serving basic wholesome Portugese food in the area and if you want to go fine dining there is that as well. If all else fails or you've misjudged the opening and closing time of restaurants the Leitao(suckling pig) shop under the apartment is always open and the Leitao sandes are pretty good.

The apartment itself is newly renovated and well stocked with all the appliances necessary for a short or in our case longer stay. We dealt mostly with the owners daughter Lidia who was very nice and always asked if we needed anything. We didn't annoy her too much and she didn't annoy us which is how we like it. There is a bus stop on the road outside but the double glazing kept the noise down to a minimum. There is a metro 50 meters away with direct connections to the airport, train station and Casa da Musica bus station.

Porto is a beautiful, vibrant, safe and friendly city and we can highly recommend Joao's apartment

Well equiped apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this well equipped apartment which contained everything we needed for our stay. It is in a great location right near Bolhao metro station and is within walking distance of most of the city's attractions. Communication with the owner was always timely and checking in was a breeze with Lidia showing us around. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone staying in Porto.

We stayed in this well-appointed and immaculately clean apartment April 6-11. João's daughter, Lidia, met us upon arrival, thoughtfully showed us how to work the washer, dryer and dishwasher (not always as obvious as one might think) and pointed out where everything was, including tourist info on Porto and the area. She welcomed us with a lovely bottle of port. The flat is bright and fresh, with big windows and hardwood floors. When the windows are closed, there is almost no sound from the street. The kitchen is well-equipped --even has an oven. Top notch bathroom, too. The bedroom is separated from the living area by wall dividers on two sides. The division works well to maintain the spaciousness of the whole room yet allow for a more private sleeping area. The bed has a firm and comfortable mattress, as does the sofa bed. We slept well. The location couldn't be better. Seconds from Bolhão metro, 6 min walk from the city bus to the airport, so much to see all around. This flat was luxurious for two people, and it would also suit a family of four comfortably. I highly recommend this flat.
