“Sunny apartment with fabulous view”

The view is irresistible of course! The location also works well - old town charm and in walking distance of transport, shops, restaurants, laundrette and main Porto sights. The apartment is modern, airy ( with terraces front and back) and Mario is a very helpful host. He collected us from the train station and responded promptly with local knowledge when we contacted him. The apartment is on the fourth floor (hence great view) and stairs could be challenging for older people with luggage. Mario assisted with this when welcoming us to the apartment.
We enjoyed our six days in Porto very much.

“A comfortable apartment with great views and a central location”
Reviewed September 25, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

We have just returned from a week staying at this lovely apartment which is in a very central 'old town' location on the river front. The apartment is in a quirky old building but is light and modern inside. It very comfortably sleeps 2 people but can accommodate a further 1/2 on the sofa bed in the living area (though probably best for a short stay). There are small outside terraces at the front and the rear. The apartment is a great base to explore the city - very handy for all the attractions and local transport. As previous guests have commented it is on the 4th floor up a steep staircase - so not good for people with mobility issues. Thankfully this is not a problem for us . The 4th floor position means the front outside terrace has a fabulous view of the river - perfect for an al fresco meal and watching the world go by. There is a supermarket about 10 minutes walk from the front door and a host of restaurants and bars within easy reach (yards to be honest). We enjoyed a great meal at Papavinhos (take a right out of the apartment and it is a couple of minutes walk away). Turning left and about 2-3 minutes walk Armazem is a pleasant spot. It is an old port warehouse that is now an antiques store with a very nice cafe bar. Walking a little further along the river you will quickly find the Ribera with tons of bars and eateries.

If you enjoy cycling there is network of easy cycle paths taking you out of the city along the coast to Foz, Alternatively if you don't mind a longer ride you can cross the river to Gaia and cycle down the coast as far as Aguda - Zizzis restaurant in Aguda is really great. We hired bikes from Vieguini Cycle and Scooter hire (located right on the cycle path), the bikes are good quality, well maintained and they are very helpful.

The apartment owner, Mario ,is the most pleasant and accommodating man you could wish to meet. Nothing was too much trouble. He even picked us up from the airpot and gave us a short tour of the city so we could get our bearings. We had a wonderful week in Porto which is a great place to visit and would love to stay here again.

This modern apartment is situated by the Douro in old Porto with stunning views across the river which give an insight into Porto life, everything is close by. It is well equipped with a comfortable bed, living area and good sized balcony. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay. Mario met us at the bus station which saved us a lot of time and taxi fares. A really charming place.

Had an excellent week long stay here. Apartment is a great size for two with lovely terrace overlooking the river to enjoy the sunshine. The apartment is quiet as just outside the heart of Ribeira and bedroom is situated at the back of the building so no disturbance from the roadside.

Mario was brilliant - he picked us up from the airport and was on hand during the week when we needed to get in touch with him.

We're planning on going back to Porto and would definitely stay here again.

“A lovely apartment in an excellent location”
Reviewed June 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This apartment is perfectly located close to the Riberia District,with lots of restaurants,and also the Red Hop on-Hop off Bus that goes past the door.
Mario R is the perfect host,he picked us up from the airport even though it was after 8PM,gave us lots of info and booked a Taxi for our return.
The apartment is well furnished, comfortable and has the added bonus of the outside balcony with views over the river,the only downside are the 68 steps leading up to the apartment on the 4th floor.
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment.

“superb location”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Weekend stay, ideal for accessing old town and riverside amenities. Excellent facilities and three well rated restaurants within 5 ins. walk by river. Need to be healthy to manage uphill walk into heart of old town but well worth it! Mario a great host and very generously picked us up from the airport early evening.
