“The perfect place and position for seeing Porto at it's best”
Reviewed April 27, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A charming house situated halfway up the steep Northern bank of the Douro, 76 Rua Tomas Gonzaga is perfectly positioned for reaching the bustling bars and restaurants of the squares above it and the banks of the river below. The view from the terrace is worth a few hours of your time. Everything is comfortable, well arranged and neatly kitted out and Sofia who manages the property was nothing but helpful and friendly. An ideal place to stay!

“An oasis of charm in an historic city”
Reviewed April 24, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This apartment is so pleasant to be in, from its well placed dining table that overlooks the river to the delightful courtyard that lets one enjoy the setting sun on the river. Although tricky for the taxi drive to find, the location of the apartment is in a perfect proximity to many of the old city sites and close enough to the railway station for all those other adventures. It is surrounded by quirky and delightfully catered for restaurants, as well as a brief walk across the bridge to the many port tasting caves.
We were met by our friendly welcomers and quickly settled into five memorable nights in this charming city.

“Excellent apartment with great facilities and amazing views.”
Reviewed April 3, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This apartment is in a great location with a balcony providing a spectacular view of the river. It was very clean and comfortable and had all the facilities needed. We received a warm welcome from Sophia and our party of three would certainly recommend the apartment for anyone visiting Porto.

“Splendid views!”
Reviewed November 2, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A beautiful, extremely clean and perfectly located apartment. There were 5 of us and the 3 bedrooms were more than spacious. The view of the river from two of the bedrooms and kitchen were of the river. Also a lovely balcony with table and chairs was great. Several good restaurants were very close. We loved our stay.

“Better than a hotel..near shops and transport and a delightful place”
Reviewed September 20, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The only reason I didn't give it five stars was that the second bathroom was only a toilet and washbasin off the kitchen. This could have been a problem with two couples staying at the house.

I am glad you had a good time and found the house ~"better than a hotel" Sadly there isn't room for a second bathroom with shower etc which I know would make it even better than a hotel!

“5* Porto Apartment”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

This wonderful apartment with beautiful views of the river was our haven in Porto. It was spacious, comfortable and sufficiently far away from the madding crowd, yet right in the centre. For us, Porto was a fantastic gem - glorious and inexpensive food and wine, friendly people, amazing sights near and far. The apartment was always wonderful to wake up in and return to - I shall not forget the views! Camilla was always helpful and clear and Sofia was always on hand if we had a problem. We even managed to catch a football match with FC Porto. This will be a most memorable holiday for all of us and we are still talking about the apartment and about Porto.
