About the property

Right in historic downtown Porto, spacious 4 bedrooms apartment with 3 bathrooms

This charming apartment is perfect for a stay with your family or friends. Everyone will be comfortably lodged since there are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The apartment is very well located at a 10 min distance walk from the center. This Art Deco house was recently restored respecting its original style, but offering at the same time modern comfort (central heating, double glazed windows, ...).

The apartment has: 1 room with a double bed + 3 rooms with 2 single beds each. One of this 3 rooms is a suite with bathroom. Then you have 2 other bathrooms, an equipped kitchen, a living / dining room and 2 balconies. Linens and towels are included (and also a hairdryer).

The apartment is on a second floor, without elevator. You'll have exclusive access to it. Two baby beds and seats can be provided.

To do the laundry, this is how it works: give us the laundry, we do the washing and retrieve it as soon as possible (the same day or the day after). In order to dry the laundry, you’ll find a drying rack where to hang it. The price is 5€ per each machine (around 6kg / 13lb). Extra set of towels during the stay: 2€ per set.

The check-in and check-out times are flexible, unless guests arrive or leave on the same day, in which case the check-in will have to be made after 2pm and the check-out before 9am.

Central heating is included in the price for stays from October to April. From May to September the price indicated is without heating, but you can require heating if necessary and pay €6/24h.

About Cíntia

Hi, my name is Cíntia. My sister Carolina and I are renting this charming apartment in an art deco building in Porto!

What makes this apartment unique

Although situated in the center of Porto, a few minutes walk from most points of interest in the city, the apartment is very quiet because it is located on a residential street and it mostly faces the back side where there is a garden and a nice open view.

Map

Car: not necessary

As it is located downtown it is very easy to have access to public transports:

There are 2 bus stops in the street and you can almost always find taxis up the street; the apartment is 5 minutes from the Lapa Metro Station and 10 minutes from Trindade Metro Station.

If you fly to Porto, you can come to the apartment from the airport catching a cab (around 20€ per cab, 20 min) or using the metro (around 30 min, up to 30 min wait, 2.30€ per person). I can inform you about the schedules of metros leaving the airport after your arrival time.

SÃO BENTO train station is right on the city center, about 15 min on foot from the apartment. At the CAMPANHÃ train station you can catch a cab to the apartment (around 5 min), or you can use the subway (around 15 min). There is a metro station with the same name right next to the train station (you just have to go out from the front door and the metro station is on your right side).

We were extremely impressed with the exceptionally high standard of the accommodation (most spacious) - beautifully furnished and very, very clean. The location was centraal and perfect for us. The owners were most helpful. It was a real joy to stay there! Merci. Obrigado!"

Une excellente adresse à Porto !

  • 5 of 5

Pour les 4 couples d'amis retraités partis à la découverte de Porto, cet appartement était parfait : spacieux, proche des transports en commun et des petits commerces. Voiture inutile pour visiter la ville. Train au départ de Sao Bento parfait (et peu onéreux) pour s'éloigner vers Braga, Guimaraes, Aveiro ...

L'accueil chaleureux des propriétaires qui parlent parfaitement français est un atout supplémentaire. Cintia est toujours là pour répondre à nos demandes, avant et pendant le séjour. Carolina est le relais idéal pour organiser une visite de la célèbre cave où elle travaille.

Une adresse à retenir pour une belle découverte de Porto.
