We had a lovely stay at this apartment. It is spacious, very clean and nicely decorated. It is very convenient to restaurants and the heart of old Porto. Just down the street is the trolly stop that connects to the beach and other attractions in the old city. The river is visible from the balcony and the apartment is a bit more sheltered from the city noise on a less traveled road. Parking is close by (we paid €78 for 3 days) as we drove a car from Lisbon.
Our host, Isabel, was warm and friendly and helped us arrange a wine tour of the Douro wine country and sailing trip with Diogo, a local guide who had incredible knowledge of the area. He picked us up and our door and drove us to the wine country and even stopped at a local bakery owned and operated by the same couple since 1940! Lunch was at an amazing winery where we bought 2 bottles of port. A beautiful sunny October day! I definitely recommend Isabel’s apartment.
Alice and Pedro met us when we arrived and were very helpful. They were both lovely and friendly and kept in contact with us throughout our stay in case we had any questions. The showed us places of interest and their favourite places to eat. The apartment was great. Although on a busy street with restaurants and bars, the windows shut out any noise. It was situated in a part of town that was within easy walking distance to just about anywhere in Porto. I would highly recommend this apartment.
