About the property

Building with lift, apartment for 12 guests, 4bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, A/c

Welcome to our very first Oporto apartment- RE1 could not be a better way to start. With fabulous views over the Douro river and a step away from the bustling district of Aliados and Clerigos this place is the definition of central. RE1 is a 4 bedroom apartment, with 2 full bathrooms, AC, heating and all of the amenities. It features a large balcony in the living room and smaller balconies in 3 bedrooms. It is located in an elevator building- and high accessibility (3 small steps from Lobby to the street).

The unit sleeps a maximum of 12 people, distributed between the 4 bedrooms (two triples, one double and one single) sofa bed and folding bed. All bedrooms can be offered with single or king size beds. With a sofa bed for 2 and a folding bed, we can sleep up to 12 people in the apartment. The apartment has AC throughout and it is bright facing south with fantastic views of the river.

You will enjoy FREE WIFI and cable channels with choice of foreign language programming. Great amenities, such as, for example hypoallergenic luxury microfiber duvets, Egyptian cotton bedding and soft luxurious bath towels, will contribute for your comfort. We also offer a complimentary basics pack including some toiletries (with shower gel/ soap, etc.), a breakfast pack (coffee/ tea/ sugar); spices and condiments and some cleaning essentials. e. We also offer a few extras, designed to make your stay more pleasant: beach towels, beach umbrellas and local cellphones are available for a small fee during your stay.

There are two full bathrooms in the property (one with a bath tub and shower, the other with a shower enclosure). The kitchen is fully equipped- from superior quality plates and dishes, to pots and pans, small appliances such as coffee makes, food processor etc, you will find everything you need should you choose to cook. There are a number of supermarkets and grocery stores nearby.

RE1 has a Tram stop right by the building, as across the street you can hop on the Hop-on/ Hop off city tours. Less than 3 -5 min away on foot you will find a number of restaurants, shops and the bar area around the Galerias de Paris street. The nearest Metro station is about 10 minutes away (São Bento and Aliados). There is on street parking, and underground garages in the main square by the Hospital of Santo Antonio and Clerigos.

Try and go for a jog by the river Douro margin simply by heading right as you exit the building.

Inquire about adapters for US and UK appliances.

Close proximity of key historic sights in Porto will enable you to discover the city on foot- Clerigos tower 4min; Galerias de Paris 5min; Aliados Av- 7 min; Theater district 8-10 min, Ribeira -10 min, Gaia and the Porto wine caves crossing the bridge a leisurely 15-20 min walk. The pedestrian shopping district of Santa Catarina is less than 15 min away on foot, and the art district around Miguel Bombarda streets are 7-10 min away. Try to vist the nearby Foz, at the mouth of the Douro for a relaxing afternoon overlooking the sea. A bit further ahead sample fresh and delicious seafood in the picturesque village of Matosinhos.

Good location! Plenty of space for large group

  • 5 of 5

Nicely located apartment. The lady who checked us in and out was extremely nice. Beautiful view of Porto from the 6th floor. Apartment has all the necessary amenities. Only negative aspect is there is no easy parking in front of the building, even for quick loading and unloading luggage as there is a cable car track that runs in front.

Room with a view of celebration

  • 5 of 5

I traveled with my 2 daughters to Portugal to celebrate their birthdays. We stayed in a fabulous apartment with views of the Douro River. While there, the celebration of St. John the Baptiste happened. It was so exciting and we joined in on the celebration, we had a blast. From our balcony we saw fireworks on display over the Douro River and could hear the music playing there as well. The sky with dotted with lanterns, it was magical.

The apartment is large and very comfortable. The 3 bedrooms were very comfortable, the 4th was tiny and only used it for the bathroom. WiFi was great. The kitchen was fun to cook in. There are no ice cube trays, you might want to bring your own.

Don't let the outside of the building scare you, the apartment was great. We could walk everywhere, even over the bridge to Gaia, where the Port Caves are.

There is a market about 2 blocks away, shopping and outdoor restaurants nearby.

Maria, our house manager, was very good with information and actually getting us involved with the celebration activities. She also arranged for a taxi to pick us up and take us to the train station on our departure.

I would highly recommend this apartment and would definitely return.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The flat is lovely, well appointed and very clean and comfortable. Wonderful views, excellent location. The only thing missing was an ice cube tray! There were 7 of us so we had plenty of space although wardrobe space was very limited. I would happily recommend this apartment.
