Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

A charming, modern studio apartment in the heart of historic Porto. Clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable. A few short blocks to the Ribeira, and close to great restaurants, wine-cellars, and Fado music.

Working with Isabel was easy and stress-free. Before our arrival she sent lots of recommendations for things to do. She even helped us find a secure, nearby carpark with affordable rates. Since this was our first time in Porto, she rode with us to the garage and walked us back along the lively, charming riverfront. In our room was a decanter of complimentary Port and two of Portugal’s famous custard pastries. Isabel also has another, larger property nearby. We would feel confident booking any of her rentals.

Delightful, well designed apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our Porto stay and living in this apartment for a week was a joy! It was conveniently located in easy-to-walk Old Porto with plenty of restaurants and shops. Our street was a block up from the Douro River, a 5 minute walk to the Cathedral and just around the corner from St. Francis and the Stock Exchange Palace. We did not need to use public transportation at any time. As São Bento was less than a 10 minute walk from the apartment, we did take a day trip to Guimarães (birthplace of Portugal). Another “must do” is a full day boat cruise on the Douro. We cruised from Porto to Pinhão but otherwise spent most of our week exploring Porto and over the bridge to Gaia. The apartment had everything we needed, including meeting the more than hospitable owner, Isabel, who made us feel welcomed with her thorough orientation and a bit of port wine! Comfortable bed, great shower and efficient kitchen made our lives luxurious. Although A/C was available, we did not need to use it as the high-ceilings and tall windows kept it pleasant. We would definitely return to this apartment or whatever Isabel may have available (great taste in decor and location!). Porto is a special place!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Isabel for making our stay memorable and going the extra mile (last minute bedding arrangement). You have given us some great tips. Your flat was a gem in the city. Clean, well furnished, cosy and comfortable. Close to all the main sightseeing sites and away from the main streets.

It was my first trip to Porto but I will definitely be back. Amazing city break. Cherry on the top, the weather did not let us down ☺

Thanks again for everything Isabel.
