Se Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom apartment, sleep 5 in centre of Porto, with private garden

The Manor house is a XVII century listed building,with 3 independent apartments placed in the oldest part of Porto in the heart of the historical centre that has just been classified as world heritage. Belonging to my family since the XIX century it has just been recently restored.

Born and raised in Porto, half french, half portuguese. Lived for a short time in France, and worked in Porto with the british comunity. I am always curious to learn more about other cultures and understand what our guests expect from a stay in a very unique city like Porto.

This property was bought by my great-great grandfather, it stayed in the family since. A few years ago my sister and I decided to buy it from our uncles. It is now our duty to share history of our culture with our guests and provide the best experience possible.

This Manor as 300 years old, some areas didn't change at all since the original construction such as the floor made of chestnut, the iron balconys. You can still feell the mood of a XVII building with the wonderfull view over the Douro river. It is a safe neighborhood, and very quiet area.

AWESOME PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This place was amazing . Is a little bit old on the inside but the patio and the view make up for it . we stayed there a couple of nights and really enjoyed our time there . Alexandre was super nice and very helpful . Very accomodating of our needs . Also we had some other familiy members visiting and he was able to accomodate them for a very reasonable price on the same building . Staying here made our stay in Porto unforgetabble . Eating breakfast or having drinks in the patio was so pleasent . I would go back and stay there again .

Do not leave anything in your car ... they will break your windows if they think there is somethi8ng there that has value . Other than that , amazing place !

BEAUTIFUL VIEW IN HISTORICAL SURROUNDINGS.

  • 5 of 5
This property comes highly recommended. We stayed for 1 month and we couldn't be happier. The house is roomy and has a great terrace with a beautiful view. The pictures almost doesn't do it justice, as you can see most of Porto and a great portion of the Douro from the house. It's very central located in the old and historic part of the city, with very short distance to everything. We've had friends and family staying with us in the house, and everyone was very satisfied with it. We will all recommend it if anyone we know wants to visit Porto.

GREAT APPARTMENT, GREAT LOCATION, GREAT VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 1 week in this appartment (3 adults and 3 kids). The location is perfect for us and perfect for kids too as they have a lot of space to play. They can also watch DVD's and play outside on the safe terrasse. It is also very easy to come back home when they feel tired as the appartment is very close to most worth visiting sites.
The appartment is well equiped: we appreciated having a small computer with wifi connection at our disposal. Alexandre, the owner is very nice and helpful.
The view from the terrasse is amazing, one of the best of Oporto I think.
We really enjoyed spending our holiday there and will definitely return.
