Best of two worlds

  • 5 of 5

The flat is very large and light, well equiped, clean and central to public transport lines taking one to Porto or further a field by bus, metro line, regional train or the two bikes that come with the flat. Maria is very welcoming and present in the background should emergencies arise.

The flat is central for both Porto and the countryside, an aspect which too is worth a lot.

The little shop at the end of the road near the beach is a gem. It sells everything and more. Supermarkets are further afield and require a car, but one has no real need for them. There restaurants and coffee shops in abundance within walking distance from the flat.

We had a great time exploring Porto and the coast to the north and south, as well as Braga.

We toured along the river Douro with the rental car and came across beautiful riverside beaches and interesting local restaurants. Trips by public transport were however the preferred mode of transport. Portuguese roadsigns and driving takes getting used to.

We would love to come back and would suggest Maria's place to family and friends.

Schöne Wohnung in Strandnähe

  • 4 of 5

Wir sind sehr freundlich mit selbstgemachtem Dessert begrüßt worden und haben uns in der schönen Wohnung

sehr wohl gefühlt. Es gab auch einen Wind- und Sonnenschutz für den Strand, den wir oft genutzt haben.

Es sollte nur noch mal darauf geachtet werden, dass die angebotenen Fahrräder (die man gut gebrauchen kann,

wenn man nicht mit Auto unterwegs ist) auch in einem guten Zustand sind.
