ROMANTIC APARTMENT, HEART OF PORTO

Sao Nicolau Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment at Center, Downtown at Ribeira, UNESCO World Heritage

Hello,

My name is Pedro and I have for you a beautiful apartment that stays in the heart of Oporto, only 50 meters from the river. The apartment stays in a zone considered as UNESCO World Heritage, in a very typical street.

All the major attractions of the city are around and near the apartment, you are only 1 minute from the riverside area of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia, where are located the wine cellars of Porto and the famous cruise tours to make the Douro Valley.

The building is of the year 1900 and has already received an architecture award. The apartment has a romantic style and will receive you with great comfort.

The apartment has a very good bedroom with a large bed, 1 bathroom, and a very nice guest room with a sofa that becomes bed for 2 persons and another individual sofa. It has also a dining room and a cellaret with some wine bottles for you. At the balcony, especially for smokers or to enjoy a glass of wine you find a small table and 2 chairs.

It has complete modern facilities for 4 persons.

When you arrive in Porto we will meet personally at the apartment. From the airport you can come by taxi (20 or 25 Euros) or by Metro to 'Sao Bento' station (near 30 minutes), and then go down all way through Rua das Flores.

At the apartment you will find a city guide plan that I made myself. It is a complete guide that includes all my favorite spots in Porto.

If you are looking for a real Oporto living experience this is the place with soul and well being that you are looking for.

Hope you enjoy it!

My name is Pedro, I am 35 years old and I consider myself a son of Porto. I lived all my life in Porto and I think it's one of the most amazing cities in the world.

Pedro Resende purchased this apartment in 2010

I bought this apartment 2 years ago because I fall in love with it.

I consider this property your best choice for holidays in an apartment in Porto. In an historical street, and in an historical building. In the area where Porto has born, 50 meters from the river and full of restaurants, bares and sightseeing interest around. Here you can feel the real experience of being an Oporto citizen.

Romantic apartment, comfortable and well decorated. I design a cellar to provide the comfort of a bottle of wine to tourists.

Fantastic Location

This lovely and clean apartment is located in a charming old part of town which makes it easy to walk to most of the interesting sights in Porto. Pedro waited for us outside of the apartment and warmly greeted us. He also arranged to have a taxi pick us up early in the morning to take us to the airport. Such a wonderful host!

Porto is a rustic town full of charm and romance. The port cellars are amazing and strolling along the river with street performers playing beautiful music was quite enjoyable. There are plenty of beautiful sights to see in Porto and the prices were incredibly low compared to other European cities. Most of the people we encountered in Porto were warm and friendly. We would love to come back to Porto in warm weather to explore the beaches and enjoy this beautiful city some more.
Owner's Response: Thank you very much Betty for your time to write such a nice comment. And you are completely correct, Porto is nice both in winter and summer. I'm very happy that you have enjoyed your stay.

Lovely apartment in historic Porto

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 13, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
The location in Porto was fantastic. We could walk to everything in the city and take a quick trolley ride to the beach.

The property itself was great. Very well maintained, nicely decorated and was very clean. Pedro greeted us at the apartment and was very friendly and helpful in showing us around the apartment and giving us recommendations for restaurants and things to do in Porto. Not to mention, he brought 2 bottles of wine to welcome the 4 of us that were staying there.

At one point during our stay, our key wasn't working and we were locked out of the apartment. We called Pedro and he immediately came to meet us and help us get in (turns out, we just weren't turning the key enough times– oops!). The point of that being that he was extremely responsive when you need anything at all.

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend staying here. Not a bad comment to say about this property or the host. If we come back to Porto, we would stay here again.
Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your words so kind to me. Was a pleasure to meet you!! All the best for you!
