It is no wonder that these apartments have such excellent reviews, they are exceptional, just like the owners. We arrived to be greeted by Anabela and felt like valued friends she was so warm and welcoming. She had arranged all of our trips and what a great job she did. The apartment itself was outstanding, we overlooked the Douro river... More

Located right on the Douro in the centre of the Ribeira district the apartment was everything we had hoped for. Our airport transfer went without a hitch and Joana met us at the apartment and gave us a great introduction to Porto, along with a map and info pack. The apartment itself creatively uses the space to provide a compact,... More

Forget hotels! This accomodation is the best in Porto - as a family of four adults we had the bottom apartment - we sat on New Year's Day 2014 on the front porch soaking up the sunshine and watching the hustle and bustle of river life on a beautiful winter's day enjoying the Port that Anabele and Joanna left for...

We loved this property right on the Douro river and spent 2 nights here prior to a river cruise on the Douro. The attention to detail from the staff it what is outstanding with this accommodation. At booking time you are given plenty of information about the place you are staying, good arrangements are made to meet you at the... More

The apartment was absolutely perfect. Located in a wonderful building with the best view of the Douro the flat is furnished in a fresh natural and yet very comfortable way. Beds are lovely, the kitchen is very well equipped and the little balcony the favourite spot. Its location is as central as can be and the owner Anabela provides a... More

I booked this apartment early in the year and planned our stay in Porto around staying here. Arrival time was given to the staff and confirmed just before, but despite this we waited in the blazing sun in our motorbike gear to be welcomed. We checked with the neighbour that we were in the right place. No one turned up... More

Ribeira apartments have an incredible location, they are right on the Douro River, with a beautiful view. Additionally, they are in walking distance to dozens of excellent restaurants, shops, a small market, a bakery, as well as the bridge that crosses the river into the Villa Nova de Gaia, where all of the porto wine cellars are located. I stayed... More

What an amazing property--I'm so glad that we were able to stay with you, Joana and Anabela! The location was prime, within walking distance of port houses, city center, and all kinds of tourist sights, and the apartments themselves are divine! I sincerely hope we'll be able to come back one day! Thank you for making our trip to Porto... More

What a wonderful experience! Amazing interior and view...but that we knew. The big plus was the personal communication from the contact ladies and the detailed map of Porto that we received from them with recommendations on great sights to visit!

We stayed here 3 nights in June and absolutely loved it! The apartment is very tastefully decorated and extremely well located. Anabela was extremely helpful with answering questions and providing suggestions both during the planning process as well as when we were in Porto. Joanna gave us a very warm welcome and provided a great overview of the apartment and... More
