We arrived by train from Lisbon and were thrilled that we could walk a few blocks to the house. This is a beautiful location with an amazing view of the Douro River. The house has all the modern conveniences. There is a beautiful cobblestone street that winds down to the river where you can shop and dine. A beautiful cathedral right next door to the house. Parking can be a bit tricky, but there is a parking garage a short walking distance away. The house is split level with many stairs which gives it it's charm. Jose, the owner, was wonderful to work with. His assistant Jorge met us upon arrival to walk us through the house and familiarize us with the area. Many Port Cellars just across the bridge. We especially recommend Graham's Port Cellar! The tour was amazing and the port is delicious. They also have an onsite restaurant with an amazing view of the Douro River. Reservations are a good idea. If you want the full PORTO experience, I highly recommend this house. We look forward to coming back! Thank you Jose & Jorge for making this an unforgettable visit!
