Perfect location and wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time in Porto and in many areas of Northern Portugal. This apartment was perfectly located for day trips...Coimbra, Aveiro, Braga, the Douro Valley...

Marc was a very welcoming and gracious host. He was so patient and helpful with our late arrival and gave great recommendations on restaurants in the area as well as how to find grocery stores. The park next to the apartment is so big! and absolutely beautiful! Be sure to take some time to enjoy it. You can walk all the way to the beach. Marc is rightfully very proud of it. A nice stop at the end of a long walk is at the Songwich restaurant...a glass of beer and a snack on their outdoor terrace was lovely.

The apartment was well appointed, well cared for and comfortable. We were a party of four adults. We found the second bedroom and bathroom a little small for two adults...that bedroom and bath would be better for two children, but we managed very well and would definitely stay here again!

Our introduction to Portugal was perfect! Thank you Marc!

Porto

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Porto. The apartment was not downtown but it was in a great area right at a beautiful huge park with great restaurants and grocery stores close by. It was easy to get downtown, cabs came very quickly. Much better to go that way than try to find a parking place. The apartment was great except the bed in the second bedroom was difficult to get out of and the bathroom very small.

Great apartment & welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

After a long drive from San Sebastián what a joy to be warmly greeted at this apartment which presents exactly as shown in the advertisement. Ideally located close enough to Porto, about 25 minutes on regular buses ( stop 200 metres away ) & in close proximity to the ocean ( about 10 minutes walk). All of this, a well appointed apartment with balcony overlooking huge leafy park & a good host! Would we recommend? Most definitely

Great

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment ideal for two couples as it would be for a family of four. The location is prime. The appliances are excellent, the view is outstanding, and the cost is quite reasonable. If we return to Porto, we would definitely wish to stay there again.

Modern Apartment in the Parque Has it All!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time visiting Portugal, but our first time in Oporto. The apartment was actually located in front of the Parque da Cidade – literally in front of this lovely and enchanting Parque. It is in one of the best areas in Oporto, and is the perfect choice for people wanting to stay out of the city proper, yet be close enough (25min bus ride) to the city. The bus, which runs every 20 min is directly across the street from the apartment, so a car is not necessary.

The house is tastefully decorated and is a comfortable retreat from the city. The view from the balcony – which we sat on everyday with a glass of port or wine – was just as pictured, with the park below and the ocean in the distance. It is a modern, up-to-date apartment supplied with every cooking utensil, dish and appliance that would be needed to make a family meal – or a romantic dinner for two. There were lots of English channels on the tv if you have the time or energy after spending a wonderful day in the city of Oporto. And it’s always a treat to be able to pack light because you have a washer and dryer in a separate room on the balcony.

We took walks through the park and in 20min, ended up at the ocean, another surprise. There are many delicious restaurants in the area by the ocean in Matosinhos; again, it is accessible by bus (15 min) or by walking. One restaurant in particular, São Valentim, was recommended by Marc and was a gem. Also, try the exceptional Italian restaurant, Restaurante Pizzeria Pasta Fresca and Pizza. The owner and chef, Sergio Crivelli, is charming and passionate about his food.

The owner, Marc, stayed in communication with us before our stay and met us at the apartment. He made his wifi available to us and ordered a cab to pick us up and take us to the airport. We highly recommend a stay at this modern and comfortable apartment for a memorable stay. You will love waking here in the morning and returning at the end of each day.
