We had a wonderful time staying here. Getting to port houses and to Porto is easy and convenient. Great restaurants surround the apartment with today's seafood catches. Thanks for everything!
Lovely apartment in a beautiful location
We were a family of 4 adults and the apartment was perfect for us. Modern, spacious and clean with plenty of storage. Having 2 toilets was a bonus and the shower is very powerful. João brought us extra towels. Beds are very comfortable with memory foam mattress and plump pillows. There is a washing machine, drying area, good hair dryer, iron and everything you need for cooking when you are not dining out. There are lots of cafes and restaurants as well as some little grocery shops and a pharmacy very close to the apartment. The bus stop can be reached at the end of the road close to the pharmacy and the laundry wash house which is still used by the locals. There's also a taxi rank on the main road and a ferry crossing at the other end of the street. A taxi to Porto centre will cost around €10 and takes 10-15 minutes. The supermarket can be reached in 15 minutes on foot but there is a bus that will take you there. The nearby museum gives a bit of insight into the history of the village and you can still see traditional locals going about their business. Don't let the fact that there is no garden put you off. You can make like the locals and sit at the front door or head to the end of the street as we did and sit by the water. However, you will probably find youself sitting in one of the many cafes. Most people you will pass are very friendly so be prepared to say bom dia or boa tarde as you pass 😀�.
Great stay. Quiet place to come back to sleep after exploring.
Had a really nice stay. Joao was easily reachable every time we needed anything. The area is very safe and it has everything needed for your stay. There is a great bakery right on the corner and they sell a delicious soup. Prices are very good! I would definitely stay here again. Going to Porto is a 20 minutes bus ride. If you want a car it is relatively easy to find parking.
clean, great location, excellent comfort... perfect
more than perfect... great value for money... authentic location
Thanks you very much for your review. We are trying our best to try to feel like at home!
Un séjour parfait et authentique
Nous avons passé 5 jours magnifiques. Porto est à 25 min de marche où 4 euros en uber. L’ appartement est parfait et le petit village de pêcheur est peuplé de gens sympathiques avec des restaurants où les produits sont frais et excellents. A refaire et sans hésiter nous reprendrons le même appartement.
Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine à Porto. Le quartier d'Afurada est authentique, peuplé de gens simples mais chaleureux. L'appartement est très fonctionnel et propre. La proximité des commerces ( boulangerie, mini-épicerie, cafés et restaurants) est très appréciable.
