Lovely homely apartment in a quiet location close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Spent 6 nights in this lovely apartment. We were greeted by the owner who had left fresh fruit and bread for our stay. Situated in a great complex with pool and playground for the children. 10 mins walk to the lovely beach which our kids loved. Easy access via the trains to Porto, 15 mins away. Great place to stay and use as a base to explore Porto and the surrounding area. We would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to return again in the future.

Muy acogedora

  • 5 of 5

Es un apartamento amplio, con dos dormitorios grandes y dos baños completos. La decoración es muy hogareña. En general, tiene de todo y las camas son muy amplias. La dueña, Cristina, es muy amable y servicial, además te indica sitios cercanos donde puedes comprar, comer, etc. La urbanización tiene piscina y, bajo solicitud, puedes utilizar la barbacoa y las mesas dispuestas para ello. Oporto está a 15 minutos, y mi consejo es visitarlo las veces que sea necesario pues es una ciudad encantadora, vetusta y bulliciosa. Mi valoración es muy positiva y recomiendo este apartamento para disfrutar de unas excelentes vacaciones.

gemütliche und schöne Wohnung, sauber, strandnah und nah zur Bahn

schöne, saubere und gemütlich eingerichtete Wohnung. Die Vermieterin ist super gast-(freundlich). Wir wurden spät am Abend bei unserer Ankunft mit Wein, Wasser, Fisch und Brot in Empfang genommen. Alles läuft unkompliziert. Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Wir können die Wohnung weiter empfehlen. Thank you Cristina.

Hält auf jeden Fall was sie verspricht !!!

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung entspricht den Bildern. Sie ist sauber und gut gelegen. Man kann vor dem Haus parken oder in der Garage.

Ein Zug (ca. 5 Minuten Fußweg) fährt nach Porto. Wenn man sich mal durch gefragt hat (zum Teil mit Händen + Füßen ;-))ist es sehr praktisch und Porto gut zu erreichen (wirklich sehenswert).

Die Gastgeberin Christina ist äusserst hilfsbereit und sehr freundlich. Man kann sie während des Aufenthalts jederzeit über das Handy erreichen oder ihr Nachrichten hinterlassen.

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt dort wirklich genossen und die uns gegebenen Tipps auch ausprobiert.

Wir würden oder werden dort evtl. sofort wieder buchen.

Vielen Dank für diesen freundlichen Empfang und Betreuung.

Peaceful place

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place to stay, with peaceful surroundings and view of the garden. The sandy beach is not far from there on foot, and the station to Porto also. The pool is too cold for April, but we really enjoyed the place.

Wunderbare, geräumige Wohnung

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung befindet sich in einer ruhigen Gegend, sie ist sehr geräumig und mit allem, was man braucht, eingerichtet. Weiterhin ist sie ideal als Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge nach Porto oder in den Süden, das Meer ist zu Fuß in knapp 10 Minuten erreichbar.

Wir waren mit unserer 4jährigen Tochter und verbrachten einen sehr schönen, entspannten Urlaub (ohne Auto) dort.

Der Kontakt zur Vermieterin Cristina war sehr freundlich, kompetent und unkompliziert.

Fazit: jederzeit wieder!
