The apartment is 5 mins by car (or metro) from the city of Vila do Conde and 20 mins by car (or metro) to Oporto city. The beach is still unspoiled by mass tourism and it's only used by locals (search online for Praia de Azurara for pictures).

There are a few cafes, bakeries, supermarkets, restaurants and a night clube within walking distance.

Getting around - It's really easy to get around, search online for 'metro do porto', the area is served by the red line of the metropolitan, which goes directly to Oporto, airport, Vila do Conde city center, etc. The metro stop is ~20 min walk from the apartment complex.

- A taxi from the airport to the apartment is ~25€.

- The best option however is to rent a car as it will give you the freedom to visit amazing historical places like Viana do Castelo, Braga, Guimarães and of course, Oporto!

I'm a young professional with a passion for traveling. Visited countries include: US, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Uruguay, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Switzerland, England, Ireland, Scotland, Belgium, Netherlands, Tunisia, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, etc.

I currently live in the US with my wife and son but I am originally from Portugal where I have a brand new 2 bedroom apartment at the beach in Vila do Conde.

Why Cesar Nogueira chose Vila do Conde

I fell in love with the area the first time I went there, and I knew I would buy a property there as soon as I could.

What makes this apartment unique

Beach front, closed condominium with pool, very quiet area but still close to restaurants, bars and city life.

A very modern and clean apartment, with all modern conveniences.

  • 5 of 5

A great location for the beach. Wonderful walks along the board walk to the local beach bar, great food and friendly staff. A car would be ideal, however, the metro is approximately 20 mins walk away and convenient to explore the local area and 40 mins from Porto. An amazing city with lots to see & visit. A great atmosphere day or night especially along the river, with amazing cafes and restaurants.

Lovely apartment in beach location.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment with everything you need. All facilities are clean and well maintained. Location is right next to beautiful beach and great local beach bar for coffee, drinks and Pastel de natas. For other restaurants, the town of Vila do Conde is 20-30 minute walk. Metro stop to access Porto is similar distance.

Wonderful place!

Great large bright condo by the sea. The place was clean with a kitchen well equipped with the basic necessities which we greatly appreciated. The place is well situated to visit Porto by subway and the Douro valley by car. We loved it! We would highly recommand.

Fantastic apartment with all amenities,loved it.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spacious apartment ideally situated near to the beach, we had everything we needed in the flat which was tastefully furnished. Only 5 mins walk to the beach not on the beach but still close enough.

Only negatives were

1. Owners agent Paulo didn't have the property ready on time it would have been nice if he let us know so we weren't hanging around 3 hours or more, he also arranged to meet us on the Friday evening for return handover but didn't show up, unreliable.

2. A couple of the apartments in the same block own dogs which are left unattended and bark constantly, very annoying..

Beautiful apartment and great location

  • 5 of 5

Apartment excellent with easy access to beach and short drive into town for shopping and restaurants. The metro line stopped in the town and it was just 40minutes to Porto which was a great day out.

Excellent property in a lovely location so close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Owner is friendly and helpful, and the booking process is very simple. The apartment is fantastic, everything you need is there and it's in a great condition. Lovely views from the balcony and main bedroom. Great access to the beach, which was beautiful. Pool was also really nice. Everything we needed for a stress free family holiday within a very short stroll from the beach. We would definitely visit again.
