What a fabulous Apartment we had in Porto. This apartment is newly renovated and absolutely beautiful. It probably is one of the best locations in the city. We did have noise from the see gulls. While light sleepers may find this disturbing, we found it part of the charm of being in the center of Porto and on the Duoro River. The apartment is immaculate and Marc was readily available for any type of circumstance. It should be noted that there is just one air-conditioner in the upstairs bedroom. However the breeze from the windows kept things cool down stairs. Restaurants, sightseeing, shops and walking tours are all within walking distance. Located right near the walking bridge over the river makes for fabulous evening strolls by the river. This is a find not to be missed. Charming Porto and delightful apartment.

Exactly as described, exceeded expectations.

  • 5 of 5

My family of three just spent three nights at this wonderful apartment. The description is accurate and the photos are true. The apartment is large, we'll equipped and very clean. The views are spectacular and they never got old. The location is prime. We walked to everything very easily including all landmarks, the Ribeira, the bridge, restaurants, subway etc.

Communication was very good and the woman who checked us in and out was very professional, kind, and friendly. This apartment is highly recommended. It won't disappoint.

Room with a view!

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples staying in this beautiful apartment. Even after a late arrival, we were met with a smile and not to worry, no extra charge, unlike other properties we have been to. The apartment was in an old building with a bright modern interior, spotlessly clean and plenty of room for the 4 of us. In particular, we liked the separation of the 2 sets of rooms, 1 upstairs with it's own bathroom and the other downstairs with an en-suite. The views both front and back were stunning and the small balcony was ideal for a wee aperatif before dinner.

Porto itself was a wonderful place to visit, good restaurants and shops and plenty to keep us occupied for a week. We found the locals very friendly and willing to help a few tourists when needed and obviously very proud of their lovely city.

Although this apartment is quite expensive, it was certainly worth paying for, as they say, 'you get what you pay for'
