Overview

About the property

The apartment has been refurbished, is very quiet and is located near downtown ,.

The apartment is part of a building from 1886, the same year the construction of the D. Luís bridge. It is located in the Paths of the Romantic, between the Romantic Museum and the river Douro.

The neighborhood is very quiet and quiet, and the only cars that go to the street are residents. During the day you will hear the birds that live in the nearby gardens, such as the Crystal Palace and at night, with luck, you can hear an owl. The neighborhood is quiet and the environment allows you to enjoy the tranquility of staying at home to relax.

The apartment has a magnificent view of the river and the sea. It has lots of light as it is south facing and has 5 large windows in all directions except north.

The space is comfortable since it has undergone a complete renovation. When booking, you will have access to the whole apartment.

You can quickly access the Romantic Museum, Port Wine Manor, Tait House and Crystal Palace with its gardens, through a walk along the paths of the Romantic.

The Douro River is a 3-minute walk away, and there you can find a supermarket, restaurants, cafes, the Museu do Carro Eléctico and the Port Wine Museum, less than 10 minutes from the apartment.

You can reach the neighborhood of the art galleries in 15 minutes, just above the Crystal Palace.

3 minutes away, there is a bus and tram available, which connect to downtown and the beach. You may prefer to walk, and it takes about 20 minutes to get to the center (Tower of the Clergy and Allies). To reach the sea is a distance of 3 km, but worth it, since the route is marginal to the river and has many spaces to rest, such as restaurants, cafes, gardens and a bird watching spot.

You can also go to Casa da Música, in Boavista, which is less than 2 km from the apartment. For this you have a bus.

People are usually surprised and pleased with the silence surrounding the apartment, the view over the river and sea and the proximity to the promenade areas such as the river, museums and gardens.

Lovely and original apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Porto and in Ines's apartment. It has plenty of light and space and is about 15 minutes walk to the old part of town, through the Jardines de Cristal if you choose, or along the river. Ines is an excellent guide to her city. Would stay again if in Porto.

Clair et bien situé

  • 4 of 5

Appartement bien situé. Proximité des bus, tram, commerces. Mais le centre de Porto est aussi très accessible à pieds, une petite demi-heure de marche. Vue dégagée sur les toits rouges de Porto et le dernier pont sur le Douro

Schön gelegene Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Schöne, geräumige Ferienwohnung in ruhiger, aber dennoch zentraler Lage am Douro-Fluß, Fußweg in die Innenstadt ca. 15 - 20 Minuten. Sehr gute und freundliche Betreuung und sehr guter Service von Ani, der Kontaktperson der Vermieter.
