The city has recently constructed a number of cycle tracks that cross the city and run along the river and seafront, and one of these passes right a 200m by the apartment - you can rent bikes , walk or jog. For bird watchers there is even a new conservation area on the river Douro with a viewing point.

For kids there is a new Sea life centre , many play places , rickety old trams (a tram museum too), surf school, and plenty of child-friendly parks, including the enormous Parque de Cidade, and the very old Palacio Cristal with its views over the river. Portuguese restaurants are very family friendly and eating out with children is not only affordable but remarkably stress free.

The apartment is also ideally situated as a base for exploring the north of Portugal, including such places as the Peneda Geres national park, historic centres of Guimaraes (40 mins drive) , Braga (35 mins) , Viana do Castelo (40 mins), Coimbra (1 hour) and the Douro Valley. Even Santiago de Compostela is only an hour and a half by car. There is easy access to motorways and parking both on and off road directly outside the apartment.

A car is not necessary in Porto (especially the centre since parking is impossible), but can be very useful for exploring further afield.

Inside the apartment is extensive information on where to eat, how to get around and what to see.

AS PROMISED AND EVEN MORE

  • 5 of 5
Me and my newly wed wife had a perfect honeymoon at River place 1. Everything was just as promised on web, and Pedro did his part perfectly. We were in contact few times before our arrival, questions, confirming our schedule and so on. Pedro replied always quickly and everything went really well. Even our worry about very early flight back home and very very early (04:15am) pickup to airport was noproblem at all! Pedro gave very good information about Porto, good places to visit and eat (Santiago F!!) The apartment was perfect for our needs, location and the view to Douro is fantastic. Everything is close, public transport works well and restaurants are close, only few hundred meters, plus or minus 30 meters in altitude ;-) I can and I have recommended River Place to everybody and my friends, as well as city of Porto/Vila Nove de Gaia as a very pleasant place to visit.

ABOVE AND BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS.

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five was welcomed to Porto by Pedro, a very friendly man with lots of information about the city and the neighborhood. The apartment is exactly as it seems and the kitchen pantry was stocked with the basics. A nice addition was a refrigerator full of milk, juice, and butter. The local shops were very helpful. The apartment is in a good location-just a short walk to transportation...including the red tour bus, the train, and the sky tram. My three children were thrilled to find the toy box in one of the rooms and my husband and I enjoyed the view. The bonuses were the updates by Pedro on traffic and possible bus strikes through emails. There is plenty of entertainment for all kinds of interest in the area. We have shared the information about the apartment with most of our friends and want to return to this establishment in the future. This was by far the most enjoyable stay we have had of anywhere we have visited.

WONDERFUL COZY APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was the perfect place to stay for visiting Porto and Gaia. The view from the apartment of the Porto riverfront is phenomenal, and just outside the apartment there is access to restaurants, boat tours, a play ground, Port Wine tasting, small shops, and it's all within walking distance of Porto.
We were very warmly greeted by Pedro and Rosário, like they are welcoming us into her own home.
The apartment appears to be newly renovated. It was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare our own meals there. Rosário had even provided us bread, juice, milk, port wine, and cookies.
The river Douro is a source of constant interest with riverboats of all kinds, and an occasional helicopter. Amazing to step out from your apartment, walk 2 mins along the riverside and to step onto your day cruise boat for breakfast! One morning the Porto Half-Marathon happpened right outside our window! We also saw festival events - bands and broadcasts across the river.
The port wine cellars are on the same street as the apartment so you can go for a different tasting every night if you wish! The station is within easy reach (walk with funicular and/or cable car - which goes right above the apartment!). It's easy to go on day trips - don't miss Guimaraes.
Where else can you see from your window helicopters, trams, cruisers, rowing boats, bands, cable cars,and two incredible bridges. It's an incredible cityscape - have no doubt, it's the best location for seeing Porto and Gaia!
I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to visit Porto and I would definitely stay at this apartment again.

A WELL SITUATED SPACIOUS AND CLEAN APARTMENT.

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is situated in Vila Nova de Gaia, a quiet quarter just across the river from la Ribeira which is a short walk away. Being on this side of the river has the advantage of having a great view on the old town. Also the Metro is close
The owner is a friendly guy who did everything in his power to make our stay as pleasant as possible, he picked and dropped us off at the airport and gave us a warm welcome. The apartment itself has recently been renovated, which gives it a clean and spacious atmosphere. All in all definitely a recommendation.

The apartment enjoys a prime location opposite the River Douro. Located in Ribeira de Gaia, is a few minutes walk from the Port Wine Cellars and the historic center of Porto. About 2 minutes walk from the apartment are many restaurants with typical regional food, cafes, bars,and main shopping streets. If you want to visit the city of Oporto, just need to cross the bridge D. Louis, and into the heart of Oporto where you can enjoy unique features of the historic center of Porto (without transport) .)

One of the oldest cities in Europe, Porto has enjoyed World Heritage classification since 1996. Perched on the banks of river Douro, one of its six bridges was designed by Gustave Eiffel, whose signature touch is immediately recognised.

Along these very banks, visit the iconic cellars and discover more than 30 Port wine labels, most of which are world-famous.

Within the town of Porto itself, lovely vast panels of Portuguese tiles, in all number of intricate designs and colours, can be admired in Carmo Church, Almas Chapel, the interior of Sao Bento station and indeed along many of its rustic streets. The town is equally rich in historic monuments and outstanding examples of Baroque architecture, such as Sao Francisco, the Santa Clara churches, town hall.

Porto - Comtemporary architecture: In more recent years, Porto has carved an enviable reputation for its contemporary architecture, two laureate Pritzker prize Siza Vieira (1992) and Souto Moura (2011) including modern designs such as the Serralves Comtemporary Art Museum and House of Music, both of which host permanent exhibitions and shows.
