It’s a roomy apartments Hi Barb,
Having a wonderful time with Danielle all over Portugal.
Sometimes too much adventure
Like driving from Porto to Sintra and not being able to find our hotel and the GPS just going crazy on us. Ending up in such small mountain roads that the car barely fit and had to back out late at night. Someone was nice enough to guide us to hotel. Luckily there are a lot of nice people on our planet.
We will be back in SF on May 31st. Could you please leave my car keys with your Mom before the 31st so I can get the car and take Danielle home. Thanks again for letting me park the car at your place. Hope all is well with you and that you feel every day a little better. Love Hettywith two bathrooms and use to all the iCal
Wonderful property and wonderful host!
Tiago was very helpful and communicative long before we arrived at the beautiful clean space!
We loved this apartment because it was located near many sites on the walking tour in our book and we picked up a few others based on Tiago's suggestions which were in an extensive document that we studied for all sorts of ideas.
Very comfortable bed, balcony overlooking the street with views of the historic tour and churches and a very well supplied kitchen. Highly recommend..
This a wonderfully spacious and bright apartment. The location is perfect for sightseeing. Tiago was a very gracious host who helped us immensely with recommendations for restaurants and a tour to the Douro Valley (ask him about Alcino) We would highly recommend and look forward to our next trip.
Great host, accommodations and location
We usually have excellent luck with VRBO, but our stay in Porto was the best. Tiago was the best host. Very easy to get in touch with. The apartment and building was spacious, neat and clean. And you could not ask for a better location. And the folks at the coffee shop next door were the sooooo nice! We highly recommend this apartment.
Beautiful, clean and well located
The superb experience that we lived in Porto started way before our arrival. Tiago, the owner, prepared us weeks in advance by sending us detailed documentation about the apartment and the city. We knew before leaving Canada the basics of Porto, what to see, where to eat...
When we arrived, Tiago was there and he made us feel welcome by explaining us the ABC of Porto and by giving us some valuable tips.
In the apartment, we felt like getting into the apartment of a famous photographer. It's artistic and the design is amazing. The master bedroom and the modern master bathroom are upstairs and there also is a door to go on the balcony that gives us access to a nice view of Porto. My daughters slept on the living room couch that opens up to be a double bed. Just in case, there also are two huge bean bags that can be used as secondary beds. The girls used them as reading chairs. It was perfect! The kitchen is well equipped with all a family needs to cook breakfast, lunch or dinner. A second bathroom on the first floor was also great since we were 4. The apartment is on the 3rd floor of the building. For those who don't like to climb the stairs, there's a small elevator where 2 people can fit.
The apartment is 5 minutes walking from Padaria Ribeiro. You have to go there! Breakfast and lunch at Ribeiro will make your stay worth while. However, you have to know the the prices for eating there are at least double the price for takeout orders. Sitting space is expensive! That is true in the rest of Portugal as well. The apartment is within 20 minutes walking of almost everything interesting in Porto. No public transport is needed unless you're unable to walk a few Kilometers.
Overall, we really appreciated our stay at Tiago's house and we recommend it to anyone who seeks both quietness and proximity to the historic center of Porto.
Muito obrigado Tiago!

The apartment is located in the heart of Porto downtown so you can simply walk to enjoy some of the most amazing spots of the city. Livraria Lello, Torre dos Clérigos, Avenida dos Aliados, Rio Douro Ponte D. Luís and all the wonderful bars and restaurants are in the neighborhood. The famous port wine cellars are on the other side of the river at a 20 minutes walking distance. Catch a train or the electric car and a 20/25 minutes journey you will take you to the seaside and wonderful beaches.
