Women wash their clothes in public tank and dry the clothes on the wires giving a festive air to the place.

Located 100 meters, Douro Marina with boats from around the world.

All right in front of Porto, 10 minutes from the bustling downtown. You can reach the Port in several ways. In Gaia Historical Center (3 Km on foot) you can also take the Gaia aerial lift near the Port Wine Cellars. Gaia Historical Center and then cross the river in Ponte D. Luís I is in Ribeira, the historical center of the World Heritage.

Down the street, you can cross the river by boat (every 30 m). The boat ticket is € (plus 1 € if you have a bike). On the other side of the river you can take the bus (line 500), the tourist or tram (Porto Tramway City Tour, line 1, every 30m).

Bus stop at the end of the street, in front of the river (Line 14 - Gaia Metro, Line 18 - Porto Boavista - House of Music, Line 27 - Porto Historic Center).

A 3 km walk along the river will take you to the Port Wine Cellars in Gaia Historical Center. After crossing Bridge Luis I will be in Ribeira - Porto Historic Center. Keep going along the river to the area on the side of the Gaia pier. There you will find shelves to protect the bikes so that, if you wish, you can visit the Port wine cellars.

You will see on the river Douro anchored picturesque rabelos boats that in the past used to transport the wine from the Douro Valley north to the Port cellars in Gaia to be aged and bottled. There are also card / gift shops and a variety of restaurants with international and Portuguese cuisine. You can board a cruise boat up the Douro River from here. At the end of the avenue side of the pier cross the Luis bridge and turn left to Porto Ribeira.

Of course you can also walk using this route to the Port, but you have to be very fit and imagine that you will have to return by bus. Otherwise you can get Andante tickets at the airport to use on the bus near the apartment, which the will lead to Ribeira de Gaia or in Porto or Avenida dos Aliados for a good navigation radiating out of the center.

Fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

Well located and well equipped studio flat. Everything you need is there and Maria is avert good hostess, very helpful. The flat is ideally situated for transport links into Porto. Afurada is a bustling but not too noisy village and it's surprising what can be found hidden among the streets. We found parking nearby and it's possible to park outside for loading and unloading.

Experiencia satisfactoria

  • 4 of 5

Casa a un paso de todo y alejado del bullicio. Todas las comodidades para pasar unos dias, aunque algo de frio en el piso las primeras horas de estancia, hasta que el radiador caldeo la casa. Por lo general muy confortable.

Maria, la dueña, muy atenta con nosotros para la llegada y para todo lo que nos hiciera falta.

Recomendable sin duda alguna.

Kleine authentische portugiesische Wohnung nahe des Fischerhafens von Gaia

  • 3 of 5

Recht ruhig gelegen, authentische portugiesische Nachbarn im Fischerort, die sich abends grillend und lautstark auf der Straße aufhalten.

In der Wohnung allerdings kein separates Schlafzimmer und etwas dunkel da einige Glühbirnen defekt. Kühlschrank lautstark, Herd ohne Ofen, aber die Vermieterin hat ausgeholfen..

Ansonsten sehr sauber, nette Vermieterin, gute Ausstattung der Wohnung.
