About Susana Carvalho

I grew up in Porto, but living now in Liverpool we bought the apartment in Porto to keep in touch with the city.

Susana Carvalho purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Susana Carvalho chose Porto area

We bought this apartment close to where I used to live because it is in an ideal city centre location, but at the same time in a quiet street and with a courtyard to relax in.

What makes this apartment unique

Having your own outside space in the city centre felt like a luxury we couldn't resist.

Excellent location to explore Porto!

  • 4 of 5

Susana was very easy to communicate with and her apartment was clean and very comfortable for 2 couples. Bright and airy with minimal road noice. Her mother, Porcia, met us at the apartment and was very welcoming and informative. The location was perfect for exploring Porto by foot if you enjoy walking. There was a little market around the corner and very good local restaurant 10 minute walk away. Stairs up to the apartment will prepare you to walk the streets of Porto to the river. Excellent accommodations for the price and would highly recommend.

Clean & Bright

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this very bright apartment. All the amenities as described. Lots of stairs to get to the apartment but once we got our luggage up we were fine. Close to shopping, restaurants, etc. It was a bit noisy outside on the weekend nights as we left the windows open due to the weather. The fan helped with the heat in the apartment circulating the air. We enjoyed our 3 day stay.

Wonderful city and nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

The best thing about this rental is the central location which let's you easily walk to points of interest and downtown. There are two grocery stores near by and a great fruit and vegetable market around the corner. Plenty of snack bars within walking distance to choose from so you can try some Portuguese food. The space has a good lay out with all the furniture necessary for a comfortable stay...I was just missing a few utensils in the kitchen since we stayed for three months and I like to cook. Something missing in the ad is that it's a third floor walkup with a private entrance so the staircase is steep. I wanted to mentioned it due to luggage or for anyone who has health problems. The courtyard is not in the same floor as the apartment so you have to use another staircase from the kitchen door to get to it and it's shared with the ground floor apartment but she has made it so you have privacy. We stayed during winter which meant cooler weather but electric heaters were in each room to keep you warm enough. Overall a good place to stay and the owner is helpful if a problem arises.

My husband and I look forward to another visit to Porto in the future.

Modern apartment in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment, was modern, clean, easy to get to by the metro and not far from bus stops if needed. Having two bathrooms was a real bonus as we were up early each morning to sight see. We were not sure of the exact time we would get to the property, so we rang the housekeeper who was there in a few minutes, she was very helpful and showed us where the nearest supermarket was and also the direction for the quickest walk into town. There are a few good Portuguese restaurants in a street not far from the apartment - very reasonably priced. Oporto is a wonderful city to visit and explore and trip up the Douro River is a must!

Perfect apartment. Very comfortable and very nicely furnished including everything in the kitchen. Grocery store is a 2 minute walk. Metro is a 6 minute walk with easy access to historic Porto. Neighborhood is very quiet. Definitely recommend.
