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.

And of course, Oporto city with it's historical places, architecture, museums, amazing food, and Port Wine cellars!

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.

I love water sports, the beach, a beautiful sunny day and good food, if you are looking for tips in Portugal, feel free to ask for advice.

Wish you the very best,

Cesar Nogueira purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Cesar Nogueira chose Porto area

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.

Beautiful, spacious, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate, modern, very spacious apartment with every comfort provided. Perfect for chilling out. Very secure gated community.

Well equipped kitchen. Beautiful lounge. Large comfortable sofa. Large balcony with sun loungers. Good bathrooms. Big bedrooms with spacious wardrobes. Nice clean, secluded pool with easy access steps. Very peaceful. Property is approx 50 metres from the beach. Vila do Conde is a ten minute drive away. Delightful city with another good beach and pretty gardens, cafes, market day, etc. The apartment is approx half an hours drive from the centre of Porto.

Great customer service from the owner. We really enjoyed our stay and will be returning for more! Thoroughly recommend this apartment.

The property was everything we imagined and more! The apartment is very large & totally modern. There were 5 adults & we loved the roominess of the apartment, modern finishes including 2 bathrooms with lots of towels even for the beach! The beach is a stone's throw away with a neat little restaurant facing the beach! We enjoyed several sunsets over the ocean. The beach is beautiful, fine sand & very clean. The apartment has an umbrella & wind screens you can take to the beach with you. We found easy access to the highways for our day trips to Porto, Braga, Coimbra and Vila de Conde. The food is wonderful & we spent about 1/2 of what we expected as the prices are extremely reasonable! The people are friendly & inviting. We always felt safe wherever we travelled. It was truly a vacation of a lifetime & we will be back again. We would highly recommend this rental property!

A Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was modern, spacious and well equipped. The handover of keys went very smoothly. The immediate area was quiet and peaceful. Very close to a lovely sandy beach, although the sea is the Atlantic, so is rough for small children but perfect if you want to try surfing. The apartment has a really lovely shared pool which never became too busy. We chose to walk into Vila de Conde most evenings which took about 30 mins. We found some great restaurants, which were incredibly reasonable, and everyone we met was helpful and friendly. We spent a couple of days exploring Porto which was an interesting and beautiful city.

Elegant appartment

  • 4 of 5

We had some lovely days in that extremely elegant, comfortable and spacy appartment. Wonderful beaches, ideal for walking and beautiful towns can easily be visited. The restaurants are nice and cheap compared to Germany. We really enjoyed the days in Vila de Conde.

The owner and the local manager did everything to make our stay fine. Improvements were accepted willingly.
