This is a quiet apartment, very romantic and with great views (waterfront). Not balcony outside out , but the living-room , itself it's a balcony seeing the boats go up , come down ,see birds marines .... At downtown Oporto . Center Oporto.

Oporto is famous for its Port. Visit one of Oporto's most traditional establishments, for a tour and tasting. Oporto is so picturesque: with the old wine boats plying the river in front of you, and traditional port lodges behind, the medieval old-town clinging to the opposite bank and the skyline punctured by the Cathedral and numerous churches

The UNESCO protected old-town, a veritable tangle of 14th century lanes tumbles to the river and a beautifully restored waterfront. Tiny antiquated shops are everywhere, and, straddling the river itself, are six stunningly intricate bridges, one of which was designed by Gustav Eiffel.

Tiny antiquated shops are everywhere. Straddling the river itself are six stunningly intricate bridges, one of which was designed by Gustav Eiffel. Take the Eiffel designed bridge (D. Luis bridge) across the Douro to Gaia (5 minutes walk) and visit the Port Houses of Ferreira, Sandemans, Croft and Barros amongst others where you can take a guided trip and sample the delights of Portugal's oldest export.

Take a day trip up the river inland and see a country that hasn't changed that much for hundreds of years - trips leave ca 8am and return in the evening with lunch provided.

Green environment: Porto and North Portugal has so much to offer your family for short breaks and day trips. There are many activities available to keep you and your family busy. Visit the Serralves Museum art gallery, the Clerigos Tower, the Bookstore Lello (one of the best in world for its beauty), observe the contemporary architecture in the Casa da Musica, walk between caves and taste a Vinho do Porto . Take trip inland up Douro River and see a country that hasn't changed that much for hundreds of years. (The river cruises do not run from 31 October until March. However, trips between the bridges are available all year round). The boats leave at 8:00 am and return in the evening with lunch provided.

Be at one with nature in the green vineyards during the Spring and the Summer. See the wine harvest from the beginning of September until the middle of October.

Fun in family: Visit SEA LIFE. Swim or surf in the ocean or visit our park with 80 hectares. Here you can run, jog, play soccer, cycle or have a picnic where the countryside meets the sea. You can jog for 12 km from our flat to Parque da Cidade, following the river and the sea, each step offering a changing landscape at one with nature – an impressionist painters dream

Braga , Guimarães e Coimbra.

Braga with its Sanctuary of Bom Jesus, the City of new technologies. Guimarães known as the place where the country was born – 'The Cradle City'. Coimbra, the city of students with its famous university, and close by the Roman Empire ruins at Conimbriga.

A fantastic place to stay when visitng Porto

  • 5 of 5

The appartment is situated in a well kept house overlooking the busy waterfront. It was fantastic to watch all the activities going on , we could sit at the window for hours. The location is ideal for reaching both the centre of town and the port wine caves on the other side of the river. The appartment is exactly like it is pictured and was very nice to stay in. Despite being in a busy area we never had problems with noise. Really an ideal place to stay and very friendly and helpful hosts. Thanks Fernando.

Fernando should be the Portuguese Minister for Tourism

  • 5 of 5

Barbara and I were lucky enough to stay here a couple of years ago. A beautiful apartment with everything you would need in a lovely location with a stupendous view in a magical city. What more do you want? A great host? Well, yes. You've got one in Fernando. What a gentleman! Extremely welcoming, proud of his great city and country and a real ambassador. Thanks Fernando. We will be back. Michael and Barbara finucane

Ideal and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as advertised, even better than I expected. I really enjoyed sitting by the window and taking in the view of the Dom Luis I bridge and the comings and goings of the river traffic. The location was ideal, right on the Ribeira close to restaurants, sights, and a quick walk across the bridge to the port caves. The nearby funicular made it easy to get up and down the hill to the train station and upper parts of the city. The apartment was clean and in excellent working order. Fernando was extremely motivated to be sure we enjoyed our visit, and provided an abundance of information. He provided airport transfers at our request. I heartily recommend the apartment and would not hesitate to stay with Fernando again.

The Apt with a MILLION DOLLAR VIEW

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this quaint apartment for five nights and we wish it could be for a life time. The view is so fabulous for watching the Duro River and all the boats coming in and out of the port. We loved watching the birds, the locals along with tourist walking the board walk, and the sun coming up each morning. The bedrooms are at the back of the apartment and we were always isolated from any street noise. The location is ideal for tourist attraction and some of the better restaurants are around the corner. The apartment is furnished with everything you might need for an extended stay. And last but not least is Fernando. He is such a delight and charming, you will be in good hands having him as a contact while touring the country. He welcomed us with a bottle of port and snacks as he does with all his guests. He is one out of millions as well.

Great Location for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this very central apartment. Fernando was very helpful with travel information before and upon arrival. The apartment was perfect for our family despite being on the 3rd floor. It was comfortable and had everything we needed including a cot for our infant. The apartment is quiet despite being in the middle of everything and the views are fantastic from the large windows. Fernando made us feel very welcome with special local touches. Thanks again.

Wonderful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect. We spent 4 nights and wished it had been more. An amazing view, well furnished, comfortable and in the best location. Fernando could not have been a more gracious host - we were greeted with snacks and a bottle of Port, and he was able to pick us up at the train station and took us back when we when it was time to leave. This was the perfect location for walking around the best parts of the city and Fernando filled us in with so much historical information about Porto. I would definitely return if I ever go back to Porto.
