Perfect apartment, perfect location
The apartment was ideal for the two of us, and the front balcony was a real treat since we were extremely lucky with the weather. It was lovely to relax outside in the sun and watch the activity of the boats on the river. Easy walking distance to the restaurants along the river, and to the places of interest in the city, although as previous reviewers have commented, it is very hilly as you walk away from the river into the heart of the city.
A good sized supermarket is a 10 minute walk away along the river (so no climbs). The tram stops pretty much outside the apartment and takes you to the coast, although the tram was busy and we had to catch it at the start of the line.
The port house tours across the river are well worth a visit, and an easy walk across the bridge. We did Taylor's, and spent a very interesting couple of hours on their tour followed over course by the sampling.
Finally, Mario is a great host who really went out of his way to make us very welcome. We can definitely recommend his apartment and wouldn't hesitate to use it again if we return to Porto.
Great Location with Accommodating Host
Apt is small but efficient and comfortable with lovely deck to relax upon. You do have to be fit to get to apt since is on 4th flr of walk up building. Location just along river, with morning view that is postcard perfect. Easy walk to explore city but remember Porto is very hilly but that's part of its charm. We stay here again.
I´m glad you´ve enjoyed your staying.
Thank you for your kind comment.
Hope there might be a next time.
Beautiful views of Douro, great location.
Close to town center, walking distance to all sights. Tram, bus 500 right in front of house. Modern interior. The front and rear terraces are great to sit and enjoy coffee/breakfast in the morning and port in the evening.
Mario was a good host, picking us up at the train station and bringing us home.
Apt is at the 4th floor but it's ok. I am 60 and would stay here again.
It was perfect for us!
We loved this place. As noted in the other review, Mario was great--picked us up from the train station and brought us directly to the apartment--when the driveway in front was blocked, he proceeded to give a tour of the city--down to the beaches and back! He also arranged for us to store our bike rentals, which was really nice. Porto is wonderful, so historical and full of beautiful surprises at every turn. The apartment was close to everything, the view morning and night was beautiful, and the apartment lovely and very accommodating. No complaints. We really had fun renting bikes for two days and riding to the beach on the Porto side and then crossing on the little boat/ferry and riding to and swimming at the beautiful beaches on the Villa Nova De Gaia side. The six bridges boat tour was also quite nice. Great food, great people and a great time. We would stay here again, if every the opportunity arose.
I couldn´t be more happy with your so kind comment, as I´m very glad you´ve loved the place and enjoyed so much your staying in Porto.
vue magnifique sur le douro depuis une tropézienne
appartement très correct situé au 4 éme étage, accueil très sympathique de Mario avec quelques explications sur les incontournables de Porto. un seul bémol les voisins parfois bruyant en pleine nuit, peut être juste un accident !!!!!
Buena situación y acogedor
Muy bien situado y muy acogedor, una pena que estuviera lloviendo y no pudimos aprovechar la terraza. Si vuelvo a Oporto me volveré a quedar aquí.
Apartment located opposite the River Douro, in the historic area a few meters from typical area of Ribeira and its restaurants. Accessibility walk to all the monuments, museums and other sights of the city. Also across the river the famous cellars of Porto wine does not exempt a visit.
