Very roomy, wonderful balcony with nice views of the river. Nice walk along the river into Porto
Great location,wonderful views from the balcony. Bus and Metro very close by. Wonderful food and service at the nearby gas station. Great memories
Large apartment close to river
Really nice apartment very spacious with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Close to the river it took us about 30 minutes to walk to the centre of Porto, there is a bus available but we chose to walk. The apartment was clean and tidy and Filipa was there to meet us.
Lovely apartment, I would stay again for sure
We arrived at Campanha station and walked the ten minutes down hill to the apartment. I’m 40 years old and in 40 year old shape, it would be a long walk with luggage for older people so I would recommend a cab in that situation. The apartment is quite large and we were very comfortable with six people, I would say 8 people would also be comfortable. The terrace is wonderful and has a great view. The living room was great to relax in and the air conditioning very much appreciated as we visited in the middle of a heat wave. Despite the heat the AC kept the sleeping areas very comfortable.
The walk to the main area of town is 20 minutes and very nice in the evening. A taxi to the Sao Bento station was 5 Euros and takes maybe 10 minutes.
Overall it was great for our stay. Our only complaints are the 10 minute uphill walk to the metro station and the lack of a grocery store close by (there is a small grocer about 10 minutes walk away).
Very spacious, well maintained apartment
This is a beautiful apartment with a wonderful view from the spacious balcony overlooking the Duoro River.
It was a short walk to the main part of Porto where there was so much to see and do, Gaia was also a wonderful spot to visit the Port cellars.
Felipa was extremely helpful with suggestions of areas to visit
Excellent apartment and very accomodating owners
We had a great time during our stay in Porto. The apartment was clean and tidy and the owners were very helpful and responsive. There is a huge balcony overlooking the river which is where we spent most of our time when we were in the apartment. The apartment is about a twenty minute walk from the city along the river. There are plenty of shops, cafes and a metro station up the hill from the apartment in Campanhã, which is about a ten minute walk. I would highly recommend staying in this apartment if you are visiting Porto.
Five star VRBO
My family and I stayed at this home for 2 nights. The rooms are spacious, the house is super clean, and the view of the river is wonderful. It is away from the restaurants and shopping, but that is what we preferred. We took a cab into town and didn't have to worry about parking. We loved staying here and would return if we visit Porto again.
