My Oporto House is part of a restored building dated 1850, which is classified by UNESCO as World Heritage!

It's located in the heart of historic Oporto city centre, in Douro riverside quarter known as Ribeira, surrounded by the most beautiful and important sights of the city like Palace of Bolsa (Stock Exchange Palace), S João Novo Palace, Dom Fernando Wall, S Francisco Church, Palace of Arts, Hard Club, Douro and Port Wines Institute, House of Henry - The Navigator, Ribeira riverside area, Dom Luis I Eiffel bridge and Port Wine Cellars.

In this quarter, you can stroll around the narrow twisting streets, enjoy the colorful facades of the houses, once painted once tiled, taste the most tipical food in busy 'tascas' or restaurants or take party in one of the most lively bars in Ribeira or 'Galerias de Paris'!

Despite its prime location, the house is situated in a very quiet and silent place, so the guests can have a good nights!

Outside the apartment, within walking distance there is a Bus stop, a Taxi terminal, a Porto Tram City Tour stop, a Bus City Tour stop, Guindais funicular, Douro's boat cruises, a Car park, Shops, Supermarket, a Police Station, a Municipal Tourism Office, Restaurants, Bars all you need in one place!

Relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The White House is a spacious studio apartment with a small balcony. We looked forwards to returning after a long day out. Isabel picked us up from the airport and pointed out key locations on the way here that was really helpful to help get us settled. She texted us with key events throughout our stay and made sure our stay was the best possible. It is a great location with the river front only a 5 minute walk away. Although there are great restaurants nearby also such as Intrigo. She has a book that guests write in and leave tips and recommendations of where to go, so you will never be stuck of knowing what to do. Overwall we had a spectacular holiday enhanced by both the kindness of Isabel and the comfort of her lovely apartment! Thank you Porto!

Beautiful experience

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in Porto was short but wonderful. My husband, daughter and I loved the fully renovated and fully equipped apartment in the heart of the historic centre. Isabel was a very attentive host and ensured that we were well taken care of, thank you!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 days in Porto were fantastic. The apartment was clean, very comfortable and had everything we needed. After walking all day around the city it was nice to come back and enjoy the quiet space. The apartment is in the perfect location for exploring by foot or hopping on the tram or bus. Perhaps the best part was the kindness of our host, Isabel. She was available to answer any questions, make reservations at restaurants and offer suggestions of things to see and do. We would recommend this property to friends and family without hesitation.

Beautiful studio apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed Porto and found the location of this apartment excellent. It looks just like in the photos. Isabel was faultless in her communication with us and was ready for any questions we had. We had unseasonably warm weather though and despite being in an older style building it did get quite warm. Isabel said she is considering getting airconditioning. This obviously would not be a problem if you are travelling in the cooler months. There was a fan/ heater. Being in the centre of the city, you should also be aware that it is at times noisy from the street ( people not cars) but you would find this anywhere in such a location. The kitchen was great. Isabel provided plenty of dishwasher tablets and coffee capsules for the espresso machine. Washing machine was also good. In summing up - a great place to stay if you want to be self sufficient.
