Riverview Apartment - perfect for a time well spent with family and friends

Bedrooms 3
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Spacious apartment in the Douro river waterfront with a great view.

This is a spacious and comfortable apartment, just by the Douro river. There are three bedrooms and three complete bathrooms, a living room/dining room with a balcony that faces the river, a kitchen and a second closed balcony in the back. There are beds for 9 people (2 doubles, a double sofa-bed and three single beds) and a baby crib upon request.

There's also a garage parking pace for no extra cost.

All we ask for is reduced noise at late hours, tidiness (there are recycling bins just down the street) and that you take good care of the apartment.

Pets are not allowed, please smoke only in the balconies.

The apartment is located in Campanhã, 15 min. on foot from the train and subway station and 2 min. from the bus stop. You can get to Ribeira in 5 minutes by car or bus, though the 25 minute (2 km) walk may be preferable for those who like to go on foot.

We gather all the ingredients for a calm and comfortable stay, so that you can fully enjoy our beautiful city.

Feel free to contact us at any moment with questions about the apartment or Porto.

Have a nice stay!

Excellent apartment and very accomodating owners

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great, cosy and spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

Filipa was a great host!A big bonus there is a BBQ so the weather was nice and we could sit outside!

The river view was great and I would reccommend it to anyone!You can walk to the city centre it takes approx 20-25 min and by cab is just 6euros!

All the best to Filipa, thanks for everything!

Wonderful experience! Not to be missed.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, spacious, and fully equipped apartment with a million-dollar view. The owner is gracious, hospitable, and very accommodating. An evening on the balcony with a glass of port wine overlooking the Douro river is not to be missed. The apartment comes with air conditioning and a parking space in a secure garage. Ideally located.

Aspectos positivos y negativos

  • 3 of 5

Estuvimos 5 noches alojados en el piso. Es una vivienda amplia, con una terraza y vistas al Duero espectaculares, y, aunque está alejada del centro en coche se llega en 10 minutos. Se tiene rápido acceso a las autopistas al norte y al sur de Porto. Otro punto positivo es el parking: todos los días pudimos aparcar en la puerta del edificio. Llegamos un viernes por la noche, y de antemano, Filipa ya nos había facilitado recomendaciones de restaurantes, lo cual ha facilitado llegar, dejar las maletas y salir a cenar. Ahora bien, cuando llegamos se nos informó que había un problema con la pila de la cocina que perdía agua (en efecto perdía mucha agua por abajo y dejaba toda la cocina mojada), y que la lavadora no funcionaba pues tenía la puerta fuera. Según nos dijeron, se acaban de dar cuenta de ello y que lo arreglarían el sábado. Parece que fueron el sábado a arreglarlo y no pudieron, por lo que estuvimos en esa situación hasta el lunes a media mañana que volvieron para solucionarlo. Fue incómodo durante esos días utilizar la cocina. La lavadora definitivamente tampoco la arreglaron el lunes, pero para nosotros ello no fue importante pues no la íbamos a utilizar. Tampoco funcionaba la cafetera de cápsulas y en general creemos que al piso le falta un poco de mantenimiento. Es muy bonita, pero tiene sus años y requiere . En cuanto a la limpieza, le faltaba bastante. Tampoco había productos de limpieza para acondicionarla (estaban los botes vacíos). Por último, quizás lo más grave, es que el último día debíamos dejar la casa a las 5 de la mañana para coger un vuelo temprano, y nos dijeron que dejáramos las llaves dentro de la casa, pero nadie nos avisó que la puerta de calle del edificio podría estar cerrada con llave y casi quedamos atrapados sin poder salir del edificio y sin poder entrar a la vivienda, lo cual nos hubiese llevado a perder el vuelo. Como eramos varios, unos bajamos las maletas y llegamos a darnos cuenta que estaba la puerta de calle cerrada cuando, de casualidad, otros aún no había cerrado la puerta del piso con las llaves dentro. De verdad fue un momento de mucho stress cuándo creimos que nos podríamos salir del edificio y perder nuestros vuelos. Tenerlo muy en cuenta. En definitiva bien, la vivienda cómoda y bonito, pero con situaciones que no habíamos pasado en otras viviendas que hemos alquilado en el pasado.

Tolle Wohnung - Lage etwas problematisch

  • 4 of 5

Super großzügige Wohnung. Gut und geschmackvoll eingerichtet.Sehr nette Vermieterin. Toller Blick auf den Douro.Leider etwas zu nahe an der Autobahnbrücke (die schöne Terrasse ist nur eingeschränkt nutzbar!) und etwas zu weit weg vom Zentrum . Die zwei Schlafzimmer nach hinten sind leise, das nach vorne sehr laut, sodass man nicht mit offenem Fenster schlafen kann.
