Why Jorge chose Porto

Located in the interesting fine arts area with a characteristic wooded atmosphere where there are relevant architecture examples of the town, traditional and fair trade shops, restaurants with traditional Portuguese cuisine, supermarket, pharmacy, bank and cash dispenser less than 150 m away. Down the street, you can see the Douro River. Good transport links: bus stop 50 m away, metro station “Campo 24 de Agosto” (direct line to the airport) 100 m away and Campanhã and São Bento stations 800 m away. If you arrive by car, there is a garage with direct access to the garden at your disposal. If you arrive by plane, at the airport, take the underground and stop at the “Campo 24 de Agosto” station in the centre. Once on the Campo 24 de Agosto Square, follow the street lined with trees, Duque de Saldanha Street, the house is less than 100 m. If you arrive by train, take the underground by the train station.

What makes this apartment unique

It is composed of the main house dating from the end of the 19th century and the contemporary architect building where the house that we rent and the garage are located. It enjoys privacy with its garden and separate entrance and garage. The house has a very functional architecture with a strong link between the inside and the garden, ponds with koi fish and water plants. There is a very particular atmosphere inside which is the result of the coexistence of contemporary design, subtle and different lights and 19th century Portuguese objects such as pieces of furniture, the fireplace, the sink in the bedroom and the painted tiles.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

At the risk of this lovely apartment never being available when we want to return to Porto, we must highly recommend it. The clever use of space and tasteful furnishings nestled in a lush garden with fountains and koi pond created a serene haven from the bustling tourist areas. We found great neighborhood restaurants, cafes and convenient markets yet we were able to walk everywhere to see the sights. Having the parking for the car we drove from Lisbon was convenient but we never had to use it except to drive into the Douro Valley.

Correspondence with Jorge was always prompt and thoughtful. His charming sister, Manuela, welcomed us and there was the ever pleasant Isabel to contact with any questions.

We loved it and hope to return!!

Porto is beautiful and so is the property. The only neg is that it is a 25 min walk to the action

  • 4 of 5

The Garden house is beautiful -- well equipped quite quiet and close to many amenities including a supermarket and at least 5 bakeries that make delicious coffee. The pro with respect to location is that you are with the local Porto people, the downside is that you are a 25 minute walk from most of what is in the old town. You can take an uber. Check in itself was easy and was given excellent and clear information. The sleeping space was comfortable and mattress nice and firm. Bathroom small but manageable. The kitchen and sitting area were nice. The garden is beautiful and if you have a vehicle there is an indoor parking space. I would have given a 5 star rating if it was ten minutes closer to the heart of Old Porto

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed the apartment, the garden and the city. Concerning the distance to the city centre / historic centre... indeed it is 10 minutes, around 1 Km. Even the distance to Ribeira is 1.5 Km (15 to 20 minutes walking).

Charming

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully designed upscale apartment with gorgeous gardens & koi ponds in a quiet neighborhood on the fringe of Porto’s historic district...an easy walk to everything you want to see & do in Porto... the apartment is accurately depicted in the photos & is immaculately clean...Jorge & his sister Manuela couldn’t have been nicer & more accommodating hosts...Jorge not only has impeccable design taste but I suggest you follow his advice on restaurant recommendations because they were all great... I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Porto

Enjoyed our Stay in the Lovely Garden House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Garden House for 3 nights last week and I would recommend it highly. The highlight is the lovely garden with beautiful fish and plants --it is very relaxing and peaceful. The unit inside was beautiful but small --there were 4 adults in our party and it was tight. I think the space would be perfect for a couple or a couple with a child. I really liked the neighborhood --it was a real neighborhood and not touristy at all and there was a grocery store and bakery down the street.

The hosts were very helpful with directions and recommendations for restaurants. They also left us port wine and and cheese and crackers which were appreciated. They are very friendly and hospitable --even calling for an early morning taxi for us.

Although the unit is small it is very comfortable and stylish. We really enjoyed our time in Porto and I would recommend the Garden House to anyone visiting this wonderful city!
