We have rented vacation apartments in many cities in Europe including London, Rome, Paris, Vienna, Lisbon, Dubrovnik and Palermo. This charming apartment in Coimbra is among the best. It is well located in the Old Town; you really can walk everywhere. The apartment itself is comfortable and more spacious than it looks on the Internet. It is very well equipped and Rita’s warm welcome which included food supplies along with a bottle of wine went above and beyond. Highly recommended.
We spent a week in the apartment, it had everything we needed and Caroline was exceptionally helpful. The location was perfect for us and we loved the music, some impromptu, in the square below - our window was the perfect viewing platform. We loved wandering the streets and the apartment was just the place to come back for lunch/siesta. Close to public transport so can't recommend it enough
But not only the location. However, it was more than perfect. We found ourselves in one of the most interesting historic courtyards next to the Almedina Torre and Arco. In spite of the constant flow of tourists through the Arc, it was very quiet in the apartment which was completely soundproof. Is was a very nice, clean, spacious and well equipped place that had everything we could need, including excellent Wi-Fi and full kitchen. Our hostess Rita was very helpful with good suggestions, and she also filled up the fridge with delicious food and drinks. We had to walk a short distance from our taxi to the door, but it was not a problem - no steps or climbing, which would be very typical for Coimbra.
