Neighborhood - This is a very quiet area, perfect for relaxing and resting. Enjoy long walks by the beach, reading a book in total silence, a glass of wine overlooking the sunset, the sun and natural light!

The apartment is 5 mins by car (or metro) from the city of Vila do Conde and 20 mins by car (or metro) to Oporto city. The beach is still unspoiled by mass tourism and it's only used by locals (search online for Praia de Azurara for pictures). It's one of the best beaches for Surfing (rental equipment at the beach - contact details in the apartment). There are a few cafes, bakeries, supermarkets, restaurants and a night clube within walking distance.

Airport - Oporto airport is less than 20 mins (by car).

Golf - Estela Golf 18 holes course is 20 mins (by car). One of the best in Portugal.

Wakeboarding - at the beautiful and scenic Barragem do Ermal, 60 mins (by car).

Short car trips to historical places Guimarães, Braga, Viana do Castelo and the scenic Mountain of Gerês.

And of course, Oporto city with it's historical places, architecture, museums, amazing food, and Port Wine cellars!

Getting around - It's really easy to get around, search online for 'metro do porto', the area is served by the red line of the metropolitan, which goes directly to Oporto, airport, Vila do Conde city center, etc. The metro stop is ~20 min walk from the apartment complex.

- A taxi from the airport to the apartment is ~25€.

- The best option however is to rent a car as it will give you the freedom to visit amazing historical places like Viana do Castelo, Braga, Guimarães and of course, Oporto!

Azurara Beach is home of one of the biggest dance parties in Europe (~45,000 ppl), 'Azurara Beach Party', some of the biggest names of the dance scene have played here. The Beach Party is held 5 mins (walking) from the apartment. The party happens every year around the end of August.

I'm a young professional with a passion for traveling. Visited countries include: US, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Uruguay, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Switzerland, England, Ireland, Scotland, Belgium, Netherlands, Tunisia, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, etc.

I currently live in the US with my wife and son but I am originally from Portugal where I have a brand new 2 bedroom apartment at the beach in Vila do Conde.

I love water sports, the beach, a beautiful sunny day and good food, if you are looking for tips in Portugal, feel free to ask for advice.

Wish you the very best,

Cesar Nogueira purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Cesar Nogueira chose North Portugal

I fell in love with the area the first time I went there, and I knew I would buy a property there as soon as I could.

What makes this apartment unique

Beach front, closed condominium with pool, very quiet area but still close to restaurants, bars and city life.

Excellent property in a lovely location so close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Owner is friendly and helpful, and the booking process is very simple. The apartment is fantastic, everything you need is there and it's in a great condition. Lovely views from the balcony and main bedroom. Great access to the beach, which was beautiful. Pool was also really nice. Everything we needed for a stress free family holiday within a very short stroll from the beach. We would definitely visit again.

Beautiful apartment and great location

  • 5 of 5

Apartment excellent with easy access to beach and short drive into town for shopping and restaurants. The metro line stopped in the town and it was just 40minutes to Porto which was a great day out.

Great beach location

  • 5 of 5

Vila do Conde has the greatest beach and it was just one minute to walk from the apt. The apt itself was great, very modern. Kitchen was well stocked. Close to Porto, we went by train, very cheap and easy. Would recommend this place and would book again.

Beautiful, spacious, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate, modern, very spacious apartment with every comfort provided. Perfect for chilling out. Very secure gated community.

Well equipped kitchen. Beautiful lounge. Large comfortable sofa. Large balcony with sun loungers. Good bathrooms. Big bedrooms with spacious wardrobes. Nice clean, secluded pool with easy access steps. Very peaceful. Property is approx 50 metres from the beach. Vila do Conde is a ten minute drive away. Delightful city with another good beach and pretty gardens, cafes, market day, etc. The apartment is approx half an hours drive from the centre of Porto.

Great customer service from the owner. We really enjoyed our stay and will be returning for more! Thoroughly recommend this apartment.

A LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE IN PORTUGAL

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we imagined and more! The apartment is very large & totally modern. There were 5 adults & we loved the roominess of the apartment, modern finishes including 2 bathrooms with lots of towels even for the beach! The beach is a stone's throw away with a neat little restaurant facing the beach! We enjoyed several sunsets over the ocean. The beach is beautiful, fine sand & very clean. The apartment has an umbrella & wind screens you can take to the beach with you. We found easy access to the highways for our day trips to Porto, Braga, Coimbra and Vila de Conde. The food is wonderful & we spent about 1/2 of what we expected as the prices are extremely reasonable! The people are friendly & inviting. We always felt safe wherever we travelled. It was truly a vacation of a lifetime & we will be back again. We would highly recommend this rental property!
