Porto - must be visited: Porto has an excellent new airport (received ACI Airport Service Quality awards last year) and several companies operating. Ryanair established recently a hub. Airport is connected to the city centre by Metro.

One of the oldest cities in Europe, Porto has enjoyed World Heritage classification since 1996. Perched on the banks of river Douro, one of its six bridges was designed by Gustave Eiffel, whose signature touch is immediately recognised.

Along these very banks, visit the iconic cellars and discover more than 30 Port wine labels, most of which are world-famous.

Within the town of Porto itself, lovely vast panels of Portuguese tiles, in all number of intricate designs and colours, can be admired in Carmo Church, Almas Chapel, the interior of Sao Bento station and indeed along many of its rustic streets. The town is equally rich in historic monuments and outstanding examples of Baroque architecture, such as Sao Francisco, the Santa Clara churches, town hall.

Porto - Comtemporary architecture: In more recent years, Porto has carved an enviable reputation for its contemporary architecture, two laureate Pritzker prize Siza Vieira (1992) and Souto Moura (2011) including modern designs such as the Serralves Comtemporary Art Museum and House of Music, both of which host permanent exhibitions and shows.

By train one day journay: Costa Verde lies in the Northern region of Portugal, and includes wonderful, charming cities such as Braga, Guimaraes and Viana, all located just 50 – 70km from Porto. Day trips are easily organised from Porto’s Sao Bento Station.

Don't miss Douro valley, also a World Heritage landscape, train from Sao Bento station, goes up the river Douro to the vineyards where Port Wine is produced.

Very nice property - excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Jaime met us when we arrived and provided very helpful information about local attractions, shops, restaurants and historical features.

The studio is walking distance to everything - Cais da Ribeira, Sao Bento Station, the D. Luis bridge, Historical buildings.

Easy bus trip out to Matosinhos - a must visit for the fish restaurants. Perfect location!

More than big enough for the 4 guests that we need to accommodate.

Jaime also left us a bottle of wine and a bowl a fruit... Nice touch!!!

Beautiful apartment(s), landlord who saved the day

  • 5 of 5

I don't know why it has taken me so long to write this review. My partner and I stayed in Jaime's apartment last November. We were taking part in an academic conference and hoped to spend a day or so exploring Porto after the conference. We were forced to book new flights and to extend our stay on three separate occasions because of a Portuguese national strike, heavy snow in England and Ireland that closed airports, and an unofficial Spanish air traffic controllers' strike. Through all of this Jaime was an exemplary host. For a very reasonable daily fee he allowed us to extend our stay in his apartment, and when we had to vacate because new tenants were coming, he helped us to move into another apartment in the building (his brother's). We loved our unintended holiday and had a wonderful time. As I say, I don't know why it has taken me so long to write this review, especially as we are still talking about what a good time we had. I would heartily recommend the apartment to any of my friends or family, and would like to take the opportunity to thank Jaime again for his great help and courtesy.

Excellent choice of a very convenient place!

  • 5 of 5

The flat has a perfect location and one can easily get to the old town Ribeira, as well as to the whole downtown city of Porto,.The flat is 3 minutes walk from the beautiful railway station Sao Bento, so it is very convenient for people travelling by train. The place was very clean, with everything necessary, with Internet facilities and TV, the second floor room is romantic and excellent for teenagers. The owner was very kind and very helpful, thank you very much Jaime! We followed all his instructions what to see and where to eat and we are grateful for his recommendations. Especially for the recommendation to see Lello bookshop - it is the most impressive bookshop we had ever seen! Porto is a fantastic town, artistic, different in its diffferent parts, Douro river is so beautiful, and the bridges are pieces of art; the ocean is very near and should be seen. We had an unfogrettable stay in Porto and we should strongly recommend the town and Downtown studio to all our friends and interested in travel to Portugal people.

Perfect choice!

  • 5 of 5

Astonishing place at Porto's downtown. Perfect for a 3 member family. Porto is a city that invites you to take long walks along its typical streets. Jaime's place is a perfect start point as it is strategically well situated behind São Bento railway station ,150m from Aliados and round the corner, Santa Catarina Street.

Hoping to go back next year!

Couldn´t ask for more!!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and seven friends spent a fabulous girlie weekend at the studios in February 2011 celebrating a 50th birthday. It was perfect, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and most of all ideally located in the old part of the town. Jaime was extremely helpful and had thought of everything to make our few days very special. Thank you Jaime we hope to be back with our husbands next time!!
