Charming and immaculate - with a special touch

  • 5 of 5

Dulce has created a truly European experience with all possible amenities, including a lovely carafe of port! The apartment is well designed, small but chic. It is in a great location, easy to access all the major tourist sites. It is on the top two floors, so you will get your steps in😅�

Brilliant location wonderfully equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in Porto at Dulce’s apartment. Even tho’ our flight came in after 9:30 at night, she not only met us at the apartment, but arranged a taxi from the airport. It is conveniently located close to the Torre dos Clerigos and all the sites of the old town. Although we misinterpreted the number of beds, there is a queen bed in the upstairs bedroom and the couch folds out into a second bed. The apartment is beautifully appointed and Dulce had left us a carafe of port and a generous supply of cookies and coffee. The front window looked out to the west and we enjoyed beautiful sunsets from the couch. There are tons of great restaurants within walking distance. Coffee and yummy bakeries are steps away! We would highly recommend Dulce’s apartment to anyone staying in Porto. One thing to be aware of.. the 1st floor is really the 2nd floor to North Americans. If you have problems with stairs.. this might not work for you. (Many thanks for Valentim for hauling our cases up to the apartment when we arrived!)

This place was lovely! Decorated with great taste! Clean and classy! And we could walk to all the areas in Porto that we wanted to explore. Dulce gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants within walking distance, as well. We would stay again in a heartbeat!

An excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights here and were really comfortable. It is a narrow house that has been converted into two apartments, ours being the duplex one. The conversion has been done to an excellent standard, having some lovely architectural features. The location of the apartment is quiet and ideal for visiting Porto's attractions. The booking and arrival arrangements went very smoothly, we were given lots of useful information. Our hostess Dulce was very welcoming and the decanter of port that she left was appreciated. I certainly would not hesitate to recommend this apartment

Dulce nous a très gentillement accueilli dans son charmant appartement duplex très central dans Porto. Nous avons pu profiter de tout à pied, balades et excellents restaurants du quartier. Un excellent spot à recommander.

Apartamento muy bonito, limpio, cuidado y todo al detalle.

  • 4 of 5

Pasamos unos dias estupendos en Oporto y alrededores, el apartamento muy bonito, muy limpio, cuidado y todo al detalle. El recibimiento y trato de Valentim estupendo! Como negativo, cuando llegamos por la noche no estaba encendida la calefaccion y en el piso de abajo, donde esta el sofa cama, pasamos bastante frio ya que la escalera del duplex esta abierta y comunica con la escalera general. Por otro lado, mientras hicimos el check in, dejamos las maletas en el coche, lo abrieron y nos robaron el equipaje y camaras de fotos. Por lo tanto a pesar de ser muy centrico, la zona no es segura y recomiendo dejar el coche en el parking cercano de Clerigos aunque es bastante caro.
