Great large bright condo by the sea. The place was clean with a kitchen well equipped with the basic necessities which we greatly appreciated. The place is well situated to visit Porto by subway and the Douro valley by car. We loved it! We would highly recommand.
Fantastic apartment with all amenities,loved it.
A lovely spacious apartment ideally situated near to the beach, we had everything we needed in the flat which was tastefully furnished. Only 5 mins walk to the beach not on the beach but still close enough.
Only negatives were
1. Owners agent Paulo didn't have the property ready on time it would have been nice if he let us know so we weren't hanging around 3 hours or more, he also arranged to meet us on the Friday evening for return handover but didn't show up, unreliable.
2. A couple of the apartments in the same block own dogs which are left unattended and bark constantly, very annoying..
Beautiful apartment and great location
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.
Excellent property in a lovely location so close to the beach
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.
Thank you very much Rebecca, we hope to see you soon!
Great beach location
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 quiet place
We had a wonderful week in Portugal and the apartment was excellent. Spacious, bright, clean and quiet. Would absolutely go back!
Nathalie and Marc, thank you so much for your preference and your kind review, we hope to see you again next year! Best, Cesar N.
