Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom + Mezzanine City View Flat

About the apartment

Centrally located in a quiet square, the flat is within walking distance to most of Porto landmarks, with easy access to major transportation lines.

The building has been completely renovated in 2014 to the highest standard, providing all the comfort of a modern house while maintaining its beautiful original features, such as its staircase or its windows in traditional Portuguese style.

The flat comfortably accommodates 6 people and it’s your perfect home away. Whether you are a family with children or a group of friends looking for a home away, this is a place you’ll be looking forward to come back to after a day out in the town.

With 125 square meters, the flat occupies the entire 3rd floor of the building.

The flat is very bright, with plenty of natural light coming from windows on three sides.

The flat has two bedrooms, one master bedroom, double bed and on-suite bathroom, and another bedroom also with a double bed. There is a second complete bathroom. There is also a charming mezzanine with two single beds that can serve either as a third bedroom (accommodating 2 people) or a relaxing sitting area. A small balcony overlooks the city. Bed linen and towels are provided.

The living room is tastefully decorated, including a dining table sitting up to 6 people. There is also a tv and free wi-fi internet throughout.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the appliances and utensils necessary for you to prepare your Portuguese inspired meals, or simply prepare breakfast before you head out.

Access to the apartment

The apartment is located in the heart of the city and easily accessed by all means of transportation. Trindade Station is only 5 minutes walk away, and Sao Bento station is 15 minutes walk away.

If you happen to be travelling by car there are parking facilities nearby (50 meters from the flat and open 24/7). I’ll be happy to assist you with that.

There is also free street parking from 8 pm to 10:30 am.

Interaction with Guests

Starting from the very beginning till the end of the stay, guests will be accompanied.

We’ll personally greet you at the flat and take the time to explain how everything works, what’s around in the neighborhood and also give you suggestions and advice for you to enjoy our city to the most.

About Porto

Overlooking the Douro River, Porto is one of the most ancient European cities. It was born and developed from the northern bank of this river during the Middle Ages. One of the most significant aspects of Porto and its historical centre is its landscape, combining harmony with the urban structure and presenting a frame of rare beauty. The city was classified as World Heritage by UNESCO in 1996.

When discovering Porto, you will find many surprises. Besides its welcoming and historical environment, Porto is also contemporary and artistic. This is shown not only in the streets, architecture, monuments and museums but also in the terraces, restaurants, nightlife and shopping areas.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Filomena and Ana

Great Apartment in an easy to reach location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this apartment and were warmly greeted by the owners who made us feel very welcome along with showing us the various appliances and features of the apartment. The flat is a very short 4 minute walk from the Trindade metro station which itself is directly connected to the Airport via a 25 minute metro ride. We were two adults with two children and the size of the apartment was ideal, it allowed the children to go to sleep without being bothered by lights being on and evening chatter. The bedrooms were all well sized and the kitchen, dining area and living space accommodated us all very comfortably. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this to anyone looking for a comfortable and well sized flat to use as a home base while exploring beautiful Porto. It is important to note that the flat is on the top floor of the building and there isn't an elevator, this was not an issue for us at all but might be for some.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a most comfortable flat in a fantastic location. Everything you need is provided. Filomena and Walter are wonderful hosts and gave us lots of information on the town and restaurants. We were even treated to a bottle of wine and fruit on arrival. We can't fault this flat and highly recommend this as the best accommodation in Porto.

A beautiful place to stay in Porto!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three days in this beautiful top floor very spacious apartment. Filomena was a wonderful host, greeting us when we arrived, and explaining everything about the flat and giving us many suggestions for restaurants, groceries, sights, etc. Her attention to detail could not be missed in the decor and little touches of comfort that made this place truly a delightful home away from home. It was within walking distance to all the sights and close to the metro should anyone decide that walking was too far. Comfortable beds and linens, household items were there for our use. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this flat to anyone visiting Porto.

Beautiful flat and very kind hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our wonderful hosts welcomed us with wine and fruits and kind recommendations. The flat was very spacious with comfortable beds and lots of storage and good heaters that kept us warm during our cold March stay. We did not cook but the kitchen was well equipped. Grocery store is downstairs and good restaurants were close by. And the metro is around the corner with lines that easily goes to the main train station or the airport. Highly recommend and would stay here again if visiting Porto.

A beautiful flat in a very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

An excellent stay in a beautiful, comfortable, and very clean flat. We were met at Trindade station by Filomena's friend who took us to the flat and who showed us everything. The location could not be more convenient, very easy walking distance from Trindade metro station, a direction connection to the Airport and to Campanha station. While the 'sights' could easily be reached on foot, the neighbourhood felt real, with local shops and restaurants very close. Thank you!
