“The Perfect Place In Porto”
Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This lovely townhouse is modern and spacious with all the necessary amenities for a comfortable and serene self-catering holiday. The view is simply breathtaking! We spent a lot of time on the terrace, captivated. Early mornings were a slow reveal, as the fog drifted off, while in the evenings we were serenaded by acoustic guitar wafting across the river.

The location is absolutely ideal. Access to shops, restaurants, taxis, trains and metro is available within a few minutes' walking distance. One can walk across the bridge to the historic city centre in ten minutes. There is so much to discover in Porto and this was the perfect home base for our trip yet a welcome haven when some relaxation was in order.

Many thanks to our gracious and charming hosts/owners, Rita and Fernando, who provided invaluable assistance with airport transfers, a day trip to Braga and providing local information and recommendations.

Our family of four had a wonderful stay at Porto Vista and we returned home with incredible memories . Porto is a magical city and this should be your starting point. Very highly recommended.

“Fantastic place to stay in porto”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Four of us rented this lovely townhouse to celebrate our 60th birthday. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well appointed and in particular had a fabulous large balcony overlooking the druro river. It was easy to walk to local shops for provisions and also an easy walk across the bridge into the main town but far enough away across the river to avoid excessive noise at night. Fernando the owner was incredibly helpful , making rcommendations and organising our airport pick up with Antonio who ended up being our private driver throughout our stay which was really great.
A fabulous place to stay. Will definitely be returning.

“Fantastic house, wonderful views.”
Reviewed June 16, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Loved this house and the location, perfect for Porto views and Port wine caves. House was exactly as promised and all arrangements smooth. Good to have use of a chauffeur (Antonio) to and from Porto airport and for other trips out (we were in Porto for a wedding and subsequent holiday), this was all arranged by Fernando. Would come back in a heartbeat!

“The perfect place to visit Porto”
Reviewed October 23, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Fernando's place is just great, it's even nicer than on the pictures! The view from the balcony is amazing. The location is perfect to visit both Porto and Villa Nova de Gaïa. Fernando gave us all the information we needed to spend a nice weekend ( how to reach his place, nice restaurants, closest shops....). I recommand you to book the place when you go to Porto, you won't regret.

“The perfect position in Porto”

This apartment has spectacular views (one of the photos is the view from the balcony!) and is finished to the highest standards. It could not be in a better position about 40 metres away from the top of the cable car It has a garage if you need one ( we didn't). Fernando met us to show us round when we arrived and was the perfect host giving great advice on the best places to eat, drink and see.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Porto and loved this house.

“Perfect Stay Perfect Location Perfect Holiday”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Never been to Porto before - have passed through not stayed.

Firstly the city itself is quite extraordinary. To look at it you are mildly impressed, but when you get there and dig deeper, layers and layers of new discoveries unfolded! One minute we were in a sort of 'grundgy' district, the next it was very upmarket with restuarants that could sit alongside London equivalents. The city is very 'honest', it's not finely tuned and polished, there's a rawness about it that is appealing.

The river estuary on the mouth of the Atlantic is defintely attractive and there are many very nice suburbs like Foz,Matosinhos and on the other side of the river Miramar, Espinho.

The town-house itself, it's not an apartment which is what we initially thought, is in the most amazing location with probably the best accommodation views in Porto. We had lunch in the nearby very chic Yateman Hotel 5* Hotel and our views were better!!

The internal furnishings still look and feel new and the service and welcome was warm friendly and informative. Getting around was so easy, cable car and metro 3 minutes walk, supermarkets, restaurants and cafes all withing easy 5 minutes walk. The Port Cellars are 5 minutes walk too - which was 'dangerous' - far too easily accessible!

Foz beach is actually walkable - 35 minutes but can be reached by tram or was 10 minutes in the car - lot's of great restaurants right on the beach!

All in all we had a fab time and are already planning a trip back in November for my birthday!

Highly recommended!
