Fantastic Porto Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was absolutely perfect for our family's first stop on our Portugal vacation. We were 4 in total (with 2 children age 6 and 8) and the apartment was a perfect home-base for our Porto travels.

The apartment much bigger that it seems in the photos, and is very modern and extremely comfortable. All appliances worked nicely, including the WiFi. Outdoor parking is convenient to the building and so we never did use the underground spot. The location is terrific, with easy access to highways for driving, and good local services including a nice big grocery market (Pingo Doce) a short walk away.

Marta met us at arrival and was very pleasant and helpful. She gave us lots of great information about the property and the city that was very useful to us.

We highly recommend this property as an affordable and comfortable location for touring the beautiful city of Porto!

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Even if I'm a little bit late, I feel like I have to leave my review for my holidays in Porto. The apartment is amazing, you have that homely and cosy feeling straight away. It's comfortable and actually it looks even better in reallity, spacious and equipped with absolutely everything you can wish for. The owner, Ms. Marta was extremely welcoming and left us all the necessary information for someone who has never been in that area. You can trust her and follow her instructions - restaurants, places to visit, etc. - everything was five stars. I can't recommend highly enough the flat, the owner and -of course-the beautiful city of Porto.

Beautiful Apartment in a great area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during Christmas 2010. The apartment is much prettier than the pictures suggest. It is a large, very nice, well appointed two bedroom, two bath apartment. The owner is very nice and helpful. It's in a wonderful area of town and has the added bonus of underground parking. I'd stay here again. We loved the apartment and really loved Porto.

Muito Obrigado

June 2009

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the apartment in June 2009 and it was fantastic; clean, big and you can see the sea from the living room window. A short 10/15 minute walk from the beach, a couple of brilliant beach bars and some brilliant sunshine - what's not to like?!! We did venture to the concert hall Casa Da Musica which is amazing and has English tours, and the park at the contemporary art gallery is good but not as "great" as the guide books say. Some good restaurants near the apartment but you may want to enjoy the apartment and eat in some evenings. There’s a good supermarket around the corner. Marta (owner) is really friendly and helpful.

It’s an affluent area, so nothing is particularly cheap, but that does mean the area isn’t heaving with tourists.

Portugal's second largest city, Porto is a picturesque and charming destination. Recognized as UNESCO World Heritage, the city has to offer its visitors an exceptionally rich architectural history, an outstanding landscape and particularly the friendly character of its inhabitants. The pleasures of a delicious traditional cuisine, in which the fresh fish and sea food play an important role, are of course not to be forgotten. On the south bank of Douro River, the Port Wine lodges deserve undoubtedly an attentive visit, giving you an excellent opportunity to learn more about the wine culture and to taste its different varieties and labels. The day may continue shopping in the traditional stores downtown, Bombarda trendy quarter or in a modern Shopping Center where design and high quality shops are for your convenience open until late in the night. Casa da Música, the city's new concert hall, confirms Porto's cultural and contemporary architectural vitality.
