Overview

About the property

Beach apartment with private sunny terrace, 5 minutes from the beach

Casa do Terraço is a spacious and light two-bedroom apartment, on the ground floor of a quiet building with four floors. It’s located in a residential area, only 5 minutes from the beach of Leça da Palmeira. The private terrace with barbecue is the ideal place to relax, sunbathe and have your meals. The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary appliances. The first bedroom has a 1,60m double bed and an ensuite. The second bedroom takes up to four people: one 1,40m double bed and one single bed which can be pulled out into a double bed. It’s perfect for a family, two couples or a group of friends who want to stay near Porto, but not in the city centre.

Within 2 minutes you can walk to bakeries (for bread and pastries) and a grocer’s. Supermarkets, restaurants, banks, chemist’s and other shops are 10 minutes away. Leça is 10 km from both Porto city centre and the airport. To get from the airport to the apartment, you can take a bus (25 minutes until the church, in the centre of Leça) and walk 10 minutes from the church to the apartment. A taxi journey from the airport will take about 10-15 minutes. If you wish to go to Porto, there is a bus stop 1 minute away from the apartment and the journey takes around 45 minutes. Alternatively, a 20-minute walk or a bus will take you to the nearest Metro station (Matosinhos-Mercado).

Leça da Palmeira is a residential town with all the commodities of a city (restaurants, bars, shops, cinemas), but living at a slower pace and two steps away from the sea and the beach. There is a marina (including a sailing school), a cruise terminal (port of Leixões), surf schools, a swimming-pool on the beach, a park (where you can go jogging, relax, have picnics, swim, play tennis), horse-riding facilities, children’s playgrounds, etc.

Superb apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five days in this apartment and definitely enjoyed it. The rooms are very spacious, clean and decorated tastefully.

One of the highlights is the beautiful garden with great seating area. Although it was still spring time, we could definitely enjoy a sunny breakfast and lunch outside already.

The location of the apartment is superb, right next to the beach where there are quite a few nice places to eat and drink. The town of Leça is very cozy with many friendly people.

It was very easy to get in touch with the host and the stay was very well arranged.

Overall a great experience and whenever we go back to the Porto area, we will for sure stay in this apartment again.

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was ideal. Roomy, tasteful and impeccably clean.

The host was really nice and helpful and even told us interesting stories about the history of Leça.

Leça itself is a gem. Very accessible, especially if you come by car. It's close enough central Porto that you can enjoy the city, but it's removed from the noise and mess of the old town.

It's a short walk away from the beach and from one of Portugal's most beautiful ocean pools, and the sunny terrace is ideal for long, lazy breakfasts.

Definitely recommend it!

Nos ha encantado, la casa es tal y como se ve en las fotos. Repetiríamos sin dudarlo. Recomendable!

  • 5 of 5

Camas cómdas, situación ideal para vacaciones tranquilas pero cerca de todo. Para visitar Oporto, Guimaraes, Aveiro y alrededores. Tanto Joana como su padre, Antonio de lo más amables y pendiented por si necesitabamos cualquier cosa. La terracita es ideal para comer o cenar relajadamente.

Vacances de mai 2017

Bonjour

L' appartement est tout à fait conforme aux photos présentées, calme et propre. Les contacts avec Joana auparavant et Antonio, son papa qui nous a accueillis ont été très chaleureux.

La cuisine est équipée avec tout ce qu'il faut, la literie est excellente.

La proximité de la plage est aussi appréciable car en 2mn à pied, tout comme le tram de l'autre côté du pont .

Malheureusement, le voisinage est très bruyant : les chiens aboyant toute la soirée, les talons à l'étage du dessus de la chambre parentale à 3h, 6h du matin...et j'en passe, nous ont un peu refroidi. Nous passions toutes les journées à l'extérieur et aurions aimé pouvoir prendre un peu de repos dehors en rentrant mais impossible !

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre avis. Je suis à la fois désolée d'apprendre que votre séjour a été teinté par du bruit du voisinage. Je ferais les démarches nécessaires auprès du voisinage pour signaler les problèmes que vous avez vécu et éviter que ça se reproduise dans le futur. Merci et à bientôt! Joana

Adorámos o apartamento! Para além de ser muito acolhedor, estava totalmente equipado e não nos faltou nada.

A descrição da localização e das comodidades é exacta e as fotografias não enganam. O apartamento estava limpo e bem mantido e o proprietário foi muito prestável.

Recomendamos este apartamento a famílias e grupos de amigos porque está bem equipado para ambos.

Sehr schöne Wohnung in guter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Urlaub in Leca da Palmeira. Die Wohnung ist gut ausgestattet, groß und in einer guten Lage. Man ist sehr schnell am Strand und nach Porto gelangt man auch problemlos. Im Voraus erhält man schon viele Informationen zur Gegend, zum Transport usw und vor Ort wurden wir mit großem Engagement und Hilfsbereitschaft durch Antonio versorgt. In diesem Sinne werden wir gerne mal wieder kommen.
