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!
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.
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.
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.

Newly refurbished house, was better than the add.
More than enough equipment.
Balcony overlooking the river.
Good local restaurant opposite.
Good welcome pack.
Organised taxi for us.
+ small touches like many wall sockets had UK converting plugs, drinking water jug and glass by bed etc.
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.
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.
