Excellent,handy for airport & Porto !

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very spacious ,well fitted out & clean,it has a magnificent sunlit terrace/balcony that overlooks the sea .

There are pleasant easy walks up & down the beautiful sandy coastline to many good restaurants and bars ,can especially recommend "O Diogo" about 10 mins walk up the coast at the entrance to a traditional little fishing village.

If you have a car it's a reasonably easy drive to Vila do Conde or to Foz do Douro then into Porto ,better still park in Foz then walk or hop on a bus.

Only downside was the usual problem of demented barking dogs,but hey that's Portugal for you 😣

Fantastic terrace

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment for just under a week. The terrace is fantastic and the apartment is lovely. We would definitely recommend a car as it is a very residential area and if you want to see more of the area working out the buses is quite hard work. We eat in every night using the facilities which were very adequate and shopping at a fantastic local supermarket just 5 minutes walk away. When we arrived and we asked a taxi driver to take us to the apartment we were worried when he had never heard of the area and when he asked other taxi drivers and they looked confused we were beginning to panic, he eventually found the vague area where we were staying on his tom-tom ! When it came to coming home even though we spent time searching the area for taxis we found non at all, the bus stops were nearby and the buses seemed regular but no signs of timetables and most people didn't speak english or Spanish so it was hard to work out how we were going to get back to the airport. We eventually just went and stood at the nearest bus stop and after not too long a wait and two buses later we arrived at the airport. We would recommend the accommodation which is beautiful but would say definitely hire a car.

Séjour à Lavra

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passés 10 jours de vacances ensoleillées dans ce superbe appartement bien équipé et bien entretenu. Superbe terrasse pour profiter de la mer. Nous avons pu visiter Porto, Braga , Guimaraes, Aveiro et bien d'autres villes encore grâce à sa situation. .Nous recommanderons cet appartement à nos amis .

Très bel appartement avec grande terrasse vue mer

  • 5 of 5

Très bel appartement complètement conforme au descriptif.

Situé à 100m de la plage (surveillée) et à 250m d'un centre commercial avec une excellente boulangerie (et de très bons natas)

Immense terrasse avec vue sur la mer, avec salons de jardin et table pour manger (un tout petit peu juste pour 5 personnes).

Le garage en sous-sol est très appréciable (attention tout de même aux voitures surbaissées - ce qui était notre cas, mais ça passe).

L'appartement est très propre, avec deux belles chambres (deux lits doubles), une belle salle d'eau+WC, une belle salle de bains+WC et un séjour-cuisine comprenant un canapé lit.

Etelvina, la personne qui accueille (et habite dans une maison en face) ne parle que le portugais, mais on arrive à se faire comprendre.

Chemins en bois balisés le long de la plage, idéal pour se balader ou faire son running !

Le quartier est très calme (quelques aboiements de chiens parfois, mais rien de bien méchant).

Nous recommandons complètement !
