The view out the windows to the river were amazing! Access to the other side right at the the bridge. We road bikes to the beach when we weren’t exploring Oporto city center. Fernando and Olga thought of everything. Fernando even drove us to the airport very early in the morning. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking in. We had been traveling for a while, so having a washing machine was a perk. Large apartment for 2, could have fit a family easily. We felt safe and well taken care of.
Chic is the first thing that came to mind when we entered the home. So different than what was shown on the website. The welcoming amenities of port wine and Portuguese pastries was so thoughtful. The location is great for touring the historic district on foot. Just be prepared for cobblestone and inclined streets. Access to public transportation is just a short walk down the street. There is an excellent authentic Portugesa restaurant, O Bon Talher, just forty steps from the house. It was by far the best food we had in Porto, and we ate at manyrestaurants mentioned in previous posts. The Historic Center of Porto is a must see. Staying at the Design House in Old Porto Historic Center is a must on our return to Porto. As stated in previous post Isabel is a fantastic host. We can not say enough about her desire to make sure you love her city as she does.
