Why Jorge chose Porto

The apartment is on the ground floor / basement of our family house, located in the attractive neighborhood of Fine Arts, which allows you to visit Porto on foot.

The area is very beautiful, wooded and has important buildings of the cityscape. It has traditional shops, restaurants of traditional Portuguese cuisine, supermarkets, pharmacy, bank and ATM within 100 meters.

At the end of the dayyou can return with the assurance to relax comfortably in this apartment taking a port wine in the bath or dinner in the garden!

It is very well served by public transport to visit more remote areas of the center, with bus stop at 50 meters, and the metro station "Campo 24 de Agosto", with a direct line to the airport, at 100 mts .

If you arrive by plane take the subway to the center of Porto at the airport and get out at "Campo 24 de Agosto" in the center. Once in the Campo 24 de Agosto, take the street Duque de Saldanha, lined with trees, where the house is located within 100 meters.

If you arrive by train take the metro next to the station.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has a very functional architecture with a strong link between the interior and the garden with tropical vegetation, fish pond and aquatic plants.

The atmosphere is very unique, as it combines pieces specifically designed for the apartment, as the sinks in the bathrooms, with several pieces of Portuguese antique furniture that give you comfort and tell a story!

Absolutely Incredible!!! The hosts are amazing! Perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, NO WORDS!!!! This place was incredible, and the hosts were amazing. Manuela gave us a great description of what to do and where to go in Porto. The recommendations were spot on, thank you so much! The apartment was super cool - and Manuela and Jorge went out of their way to make us feel at home. WHEN we come back, we are staying here. I can not express how beautiful and welcoming they were. Manuela was a huge help navigating Porto! Thank you so much for your hospitality. We will be talking about our stay for years. Please take care of your little sharks for us, we loved them, and your beautiful apartment and garden! If you are looking for a place to stay in Porto, this is it! Thanks again, hope to see you soon!

A Taste of Elegance

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing - a study in creative architecture! Jorge was a wonderful host, giving us great details about restaurants and markets near by. He's also very enthusiastic about his home and the surroundings (wonderful garden) and quite welcoming. The apartment really is in walking distance from the center of things, meaning it takes about 10-15 minutes. You do need good directions, however, as there are many winding streets, etc. The kitchen is modestly equipped but we didn't plan on doing lots of cooking. We should have asked Jorge about the heat because we were cold at times (in April) and I trust he would have helped us quickly. He was very responsive via email. It's quite an elegant place to stay so be sure to save time to enjoy it. Could easily entertain while staying there. It's unique!

Owner's Response: Dear Mary Lou, I am very glad you have enjoyed the apartment. It was a pleasure to meet you and host you. I could not imagine that you didn't manage to turn on the heating system, you should have asked us (there is allways someone at home), or send me an SMS / WhatsApp / email... in order to be more comfortable. Best wishes, Jorge

A charming apartment in a quiet neighborhood, waking distance to the center of town.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment close to the center of town and one block from the Metro. It’s in a quiet neighborhood, near a grocery and restaurants. Jorge and Isabel were extremely helpful. The apartment had lots of amenities. They left us coffee and cheese and fruit and plenty of toilet paper. I highly recommend staying here.

Architecturally unique, perfect attention to detail and beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5

The apartment exceeded our expectations! The design and materials were beautiful as well as very functional. Sitting in the lovely garden added to a relaxing experience. Manuela and Jorge provided valuable information about the apartment, neighborhoods and places to visit in the vibrant city of Porto. We loved our first visit.
