About Mario Junior
Hello, my name is Mário Júnior and I have been living in Porto for 40 years. Born in Angola, I was raised in Porto ever since and so I consider myself a true connoisseur of the city. I am a professional translator and interpreter. An enthusiast of outdoor walks, I particularly enjoy organising visits and bike tours and explore the city. Above all, I hope you make the most of your stay.
Mario Junior purchased this Apartment in 2015
What makes this Apartment unique
Despite being located in the heart of the city, this building stands in one of the safest areas of the city. With a lot of high street humdrum during the day, there is much to do: stroll along the parks, visit the traditional trade shops, pay a short visit to the El Corte Inglés department store or enjoy a good meal in one of the many cafes available. Although very close to the nightlife (about 10 minutes away on foot), the building is located distant enough so as not to disturb your rest and comfort.
Spacious well-equipped apartment only 15 minutes walk from the city centre
Porto is a beautiful city and the modern Metro system is a revelation! This comfortable apartment with it's 'Art Deco' style is perfectly situated to explore the city. The proximity of the Camara Gaia Metro stop means that you can get the Metro from the airport almost to the front door with only one change. So no need for a Hire Car unless you want to travel out of the city! The apartment has air conditioning, comfortable beds and two bathrooms. It has a main kitchen and a separate kitchenette all equipped with modern appliances. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit!
Thank you so much for the review, Guy! Um abraço! :)
Perfect location! Great Appartment!
The apartment was perfect for our party of seven. Each night we took a five minute walk to the grocery store and picked up fresh fruit, vegetables, and the fresh fish was fantastic. The apartment is basically located right at the metro stop; so handy. With the bakery feet away from our front door, we took advantage of fresh bread and sweets. We walked to the river and along both sides to take in the vendors, fantastic restaurants, and lots of Port and Wine tasting. Walking is the way to travel, you never know what treasure you will find. Take good shoes, one day we walked almost eight miles; found lovely paintings on the buildings and stairways. So much history, beautiful, clean, and safe. We would definitely stay at this apartment again, I can't stress enough how perfect the location was. Thank you Mario, your apartment made our trip a huge success.
Thank you so much, very kind of you! Really happy to read that you enjoy the city

Appartement très bien situé
Appartement conforme à l'annonce. Très bien situé, à 20 minutes à pied du centre de Porto. Tout est accessible à pied ou en métro. La configuration de l'appartement est un peu étrange, mais nous étions 8 et chacun a trouvé son espace. Très bel accueil de Maria.
Obrigado Aurelien! :)
Dommage pas de parking sinon bon emplacement pas trop loin de tout
Appartement spacieux avec tout ce qu'il faut
Vraiment très spacieux
Nous avons été très bien reçu par la soeur de Mario. L'appartement est idéalement situé dans un immeuble de 2 étages. Le tramway est aux pieds et tous les commerces également. restaurants à proximité. Porto est à environ 15 mns à pieds.
Appartement très vaste , très bien équipé et confortable. Literie excellente. Conforme aux photos. nous étions 7 et nous avions nos aises.
C'est vraiment très facile de découvrir Porto depuis cet appartement. Je le recommande vivement.
Merci Sylvie! :)
Located in the centre of the Porto district, this apartment promises to make your stay extraordinary. With wide spaces and a modern décor combined with traditional design, this space aims to provide your stay in Porto with a sophisticated, rustic and comfortable tone.
Only 5 minutes away by metro from downtown Porto, this space enjoys an ideal location at Avenida da República, within the urban centre and close to the best department store in the city of Porto, El Corte Inglés, and 15 minutes away from Gaia's Cable Car. If you wish to visit the city's landmark, the famous Torre dos Clérigos (Tower of the Clerics), please know that it will take you only 25 minutes on foot to get to the most emblematic monument of the city of Porto.
The space is also 30 seconds away on foot from the nearest metro station, 5 minutes away from the train station of General Torres and 20 minutes away from the International Airport Francisco Sá Carneiro. If it's more of your liking, you will also find a taxi rank and bus stops just outside the building.
Being Porto the city of Port wine par excellence, this apartment is just 15 minutes away, on foot, from the Cais de Gaia (Gaia's Pier) and of the main Caves de Vinho do Porto (Port Wine Cellars). There, you will also have access to a significant cluster of restaurants and bars that feed Porto's nightlife.
If, on the other hand, you are more keen on nature, the surrounding area is full of traditional shops and green spaces, suggestive of long walks. The pedestrian crossing along the D. Luiz bridge over the Douro is also a great alternative and an almost mandatory activity during your stay in the city of Porto. You may also enjoy the best view of the city from a belvedere which stands within a 10-minute walk from the apartment. The Monastery of the Serra of Pilar is a must to capture some of the best photos of the city or enjoy a romantic moment with your better-half. If the weather allows, you may still pay a brief visit to the beach located just a few minutes away by car or taxi or to the natural bird-watching observatory in the waterfront of the parish of Afurada.
