Beautiful location in Porto
We arrived and Fernando and Olga were waiting for us at the airport. At the apartment, Fernando was very helpful orienting us around town with a map, suggesting places to see and eat. We found the apartment clean and comfortable. Opening the windows you can enjoy the breeze coming off the water and listen to the bustle of the city below. There is live music every evening. The best part is we could easily close out the sound when we were ready for bed. The master bedroom has an air conditioner which made sleeping more comfortable as it was quite warm and humid during our stay. Everything is within walking distance. When we departed Fernando transpired us to the airport. We found him friendly and very informative. I would highly recommend this apartment.
Fabulous location and wonderful host
Our family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 teenagers stayed here in early July 2019. We were greeted by Fernando who welcomed us with a bottle of port, water, bread, meat and cheese - very welcome after our journey! He gave us detailed information on local shops, restaurants and sights, and all in all set the tone for a wonderful week in Porto. The apartment's location is exceptional overlooking the river within walking distance of everything. In fact it's proximity was particularly useful when our 2 teenagers emerged soaking wet from the extreme boating experience - which they absolutely loved! We had an amazing week in Porto, fabulous hosts, and would highly recommend this apartment.
Porto on the Ribiera
I cannot state how amazing the flat is for location, comfort and ease in booking. Communication was clear, helpful & consistent. Parking is a bit of a walk away. It was confusing to get to the apartment but we followed the hosts instructions and he picked us out of the crowd as we neared the flat. It is on a the main tourist area of the Ribiera but above the fray. I would gladly stay here again.
Large apartment in a terrific location. Close to all the sights. Great host. Unfortunately there was no WiFi and there were too many stairs.
Historic Oporto Apartment
Fabulous location, hosts were wonderful. Fernando picked us up from the station which was greatly appreciated. Comfortable apartment with everything we needed and very secure. Close to many restaurants and right in the heart of old Porto looking over the river.
