Very comfortable and well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is extremely well equipped, we wanted for nothing while we were there, it is very clean and comfortable and in a convenient location. There is a train station and taxi rank just one minute walk away and both the town centre and the beaches are just a short taxi ride away if one does not want to get a train. There is a lovely bakery across the road where we got fresh bread every morning and a convenience store just a few doors down that provided us with all of our needs for the week. Andrea was very helpful in her directions and suggestions and we would stay here again if we return to Porto!

Home from home in beautiful Porto

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is modern, spacious and clean and was very comfortable for our stay. It is about 1 minutes walk from Villa Nova de Gaia train station and there is a grocers, bakery and pharmacy literally on your doorstep meaning you wont have to go far for the essentials! Porto is a beautiful city with many restaurants and cafes and comes alive at night. Andrea was very helpful to us during our stay and made sure that we had everything we needed. We will definitely be staying again!

Top Notch, Good Location

  • 5 of 5

First, it was so gracious of the owner's father to pick us up at airport at 7:00 am when we arrived, and to take us to the airport when we left Porto. The apartment is very well appointed, with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. There is a good bakery across the street, and other small shops nearby for basics. The apartment is conveniently located for transportation - bus stop right in front, Gaia train station 5 minute walk, 1 km walk down to the Gaia side of the Douro River. We definitely recommend a stay at this apartment.

Hello Andrea, we wanted to thank again for your hospitality. We can confirm that we felt well very much at home, in your apartment. Everything has been so how you described it. We will recommend to anyone, to live in your apartment. It is also very central to the old town of Porto by car. One of the most beautiful cities I know in Europe. We also had our connection with Skype to uncovering the videos with you, and we want to say that you're a very sympathetic woman. We wish you all the best for the future of you and your husband. Maybe we will meet at some point even in Porto. Love greetings from Harald and Karsta, Germany

Beautiful Apartment and lovely place for holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We just come back from Porto me, my husband and our two young children and we had a lovely time in Porto. This apartment is exactly as you see it on the pictures, very clean, fully equipped, specious... The location was perfect near the train station to Lisbon, to many beaches, to the town center... the bus stop also is just outside the apartment. Local shops within 3 mins distance, the cafe with delicious cakes is just outside the apartment. The town center is within 10 mins distance with the bus less with the train, with beautiful building, lovely cathedrals, lots of shop... The father of the owner and the owner herself were very friendly, very helpful. In this apartment you will feel like you are really at home. This type of holiday can be for all, families with young children, couples, 55 and plus, younger people... We will absolutely be back to Porto and this apartment. Thank you for everything.

We will come back

  • 4 of 5

Porto is a beautiful city, with lots of nice spots and an absolutely distinct ambience, and the house is just 20' walking from its very centre.

The apartment and the building are new, nice and confortable and it has got as many facilities as you can need. Everything that is said in the advertisement it is in there (even more). Besides, there is no problem to park the car, for free. And the owners are absolutely kind and reliable. They promised us another bed and they carried out to the letter.

The state is calm and safe, though you can find very close groceries, cafés, and bakeries. We were there a whole week with three small children and we spent a great time with no even just one problem.

The best, you can feel as if you were at home in this apartment in this fantastic city, while the footpath to get to Porto needs to be improved, it is a bit "shabby", specially walking with children.

It is worth a holiday in Porto and this apartment is a good place to rest.
