Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Porto - My Oporto House

2 - 4 persons

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!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous choice in a very beautiful city. The owner Isabel was so easy to work with throughout our experience. Emails were answered promptly prior to our stay. she had a great list of restaurants and other travel information for us when we arrived. She even for a small fee took us to the airport to continue our travels. How convenient! lovely lovely person. The place was spotless, with a large bathroom, great shower, full kitchen with a washer. A great location that was minutes from the train station (we walked there with large suitcases), minutes from the water and tons of restaurants. It was easy to return for a rest and/ or a change of clothes and more touring. Very quiet street with loads of friendly people. Would definitely return. Oh and the bread, butter and water was a great touch when we arrived......thanks again Isabel for sharing your home with us

Lovely flat in the heart of the Ribeira!

  • 5 of 5

Before even coming to Portugal, the owner had shared her recommendations for the surrounding city of Porto. She made sure we knew exactly where to go and ensured to meet us to give us a tour and the keys - welcoming us with bottled water, a loaf of bread and butter! Parking was not possible on the street, but a parking area 100m away for 20€ daily was safe and convenient. The flat is quite central to many tourist attractions - for example Palacio da Bolsa is just down the street and around the corner! It is also just up from the river and the many riverside bars, restaurants and the river cruises. The owner made dinner reservations for us for each night of our stay and she kept in touch with us daily to ensure there was nothing further we needed. When there was a need, she responded promptly and was so kind. If we return to Porto, we would definitely use this flat again and recomend it to friends and family!

A perfect property for a stay in Porto!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying in this beautiful apartment while in Porto for our honeymoon! The apartment was within walking distance of everything and exactly as pictured/described in the listing. Really loved the large windows/small balcony for sitting at the end of the day, drinking a glass of port. Would definitely stay there again!
