Perfect Pied a Terre in Porto

  • 5 of 5

We were two sisters on a mini break in Porto. Henrique's apartment looked perfect and it was. Nicely and simply furnished, quiet, and off the tourist beaten track but close enough to join in the fun. Henrique was a sympathetic host, met us kindly on arrival even though we were delayed and allowed us to leave our suitcase in the apartment on the final day until our late afternoon departure. This was a blessing as wandering around the hills of Porto with a heavy suitcase can spoil even a city as lovely as Porto. Henrique recommended a couple of restaurants which worked nicely for us. We were able to walk to all the major attractions although the hills added quite a few steps to our progress! We loved Porto and hope to return and would definitely stay in Henrique's apartment if it were available. We only had breakfasts in the apartment as restaurants and markets were too tempting. There is no washing machine but there is a laundrette just across the street for long stay guests. Three minute walk to the Mercado for excellent produce. Cafes within two minutes walk both up and down the street and five minutes to Cafe Majestic if you have the funds for breakfast there!

Bijou apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This well appointed apartment was perfect for our 4 days in Porto. The beds were really comfortable though we could have done with an extra pillow.

Lots of hot water, trouble free WiFi and we felt safe and secure here

The balcony caught the afternoon and evening sun and was great to relax in after a busy day seeing the sights.

We couldn’t believe how quick it was to walk to the D. luis bridge to get across to the port houses. We took an English tour at Ferreira which was great ( make sure you pre book any port house visit)

Henrique was a great host from the moment we booked, he gave us some great restaurant tips too. We would definitely recommend staying here!

Good experience in Porto

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was as described and in an excellent location. We were able to walk everywhere and enjoyed being so close to the pedestrian street of Santa Caterina. Unfortunately we were unable to use the balcony much because it was cool and rainy most of the time. The apartment was clean with comfortable beds. All we really needed for our stay in Porto.
