“Perfect Break apart from a bit of rain”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just returned from a week in this apartment, other than the rain it was perfect. Clean, very spacious, we went with the in laws and nan and we all had our own space and never felt in top of each other. Everything you need is there.
Make sure you visit the little restaurant on the opposite side of the street Cepa Torta, it doesn't look much from the outside but lovely family atmosphere and amazing food!
This part of Portugal isn't full of tourists and is lovely to live amongst the normal Portuguese life.
The 500 bus takes you into Porto which is a beautiful city, full of restaurants, if you go late afternoon you get to see the sunset on the river and then see Porto transform at night!

Thank you to the friendly owners for helping us with where to go and what to do!

Lovely stay!

“Very comfortable and well appointed appartment with easy access to the city centre.”

This is a very comfortable and spacious appartment located just one block back from the seafront. It benifits from two bathrooms (one en-suite) and there is secure parking/garage available.
In the immediate area there is a small supermarket together with a cafe and an excellent restaurant. The city is very accessible using the No 500 bus which runs along the seafront 5 or 6 times an hour taking you into the centre of Oporto in 5 - 10 minutes.
The owner was very welcoming and helpful with local knowledge and provided maps of the city and some travel tips.

“Spacious, comfortable, ocean view, great neighborhood!”

people found this review helpful

We were looking for a vacation rental with parking and with easy access to the Porto city center. This apartment satisfied those requirements and a lot more! It is located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood and is one block from the beautiful beach. The number 500 bus takes you in to Porto via a very scenic route along the beach and the river. The owner was very kind and gave us good advice about getting around Porto. There are some wonderful restaurants within a few short blocks, in particular, Terra, Cafeina, and Casa Vasco. Overall, this was a very satisfying and relaxing stay.

Fully furnished apartment (slightly dated), close to the sea (one block) and with your own parking. Nice restaurant (Cêpa Torta) across the street. A supermarket nearby (a few blocks)
The center of Porto is easy to reach by car or by bus.

4 of us shared this apartment, it is set out on two levels, there is space for one couple upstairs and another down, this worked well. The views of the Atlantic are spectacular and we spent the evenings eating and chatting on the balcony. The locals are very friendly especially in the restaurant opposite where we were offered authentic Portuguese hospitality. This is a great place to stay
