Oporto is so picturesque: with the old wine boats plying the river in front of you, and traditional port lodges behind, the medieval old-town clinging to the opposite bank and the skyline punctured by the Cathedral and numerous churches .
10 minutes the faboulous bookshop Livraria Lello , the totally unique spectacle of an amazing interior architecture . the Harry Potter’s library in Hogwarts. In fact, J.K Rowling lived in Porto teaching English in the early 1990s .

The UNESCO protected old-town, a veritable tangle of 14th century lanes tumbles to the river and a beautifully restored waterfront. Tiny antiquated shops are everywhere, and, straddling the river itself, are six stunningly intricate bridges, one of which was designed by Gustav Eiffel.

O apartamento tem uma vista deslumbrante para o Douro; numa rua encantada! Restaurantes, artistas populares, gente mergulhando da ponte, gente cantando, mil pessoas passando, diversas línguas, diversas culturas, alegria contagiante! Ficar à janela do apartamento olhando o Douro e vendo a gente passar! Além disto, o apartamento tem todo o necessário para prepararmos boas refeições, tomando um bom vinho. Fernando é muito atencioso, responde rapidamente a qualquer solicitação. Obrigado, Fernando! Voltaremos ao Porto e ao seu apartamento!

We had a lovely stay in the Porto apartment overlooking the river! Fernando was an excellent host. We would certainly stay there again and recommend his place to friends.

Silvia K Sep 2018

Fernando is a very attentive host. From the moment we rented his property, he provided directions , parking information, suggestions of things to do in Porto and much more. The property location is perfect, in the hearth of the historic Ribeira with the two living room windows facing the Doro River and the Bridge Luis I. Absolutely perfect! The unit was very clean and had everything we needed for our 4-days stay. We felt like home and will certainly stay there again the next time we visit Porto. Thanks Fernando!

The flat is light and airy and well equipped. The view over the river is lovely. A number of restaurants - some of them very good - are just yards away. The riverfront is lively in the evenings but the bedrooms in the flat are quiet. Access to all of old Porto and Gaia is easy by foot or using the funicular. And you can pick up a taxi close by. We thoroughly recommend this flat.

Andy Jul 2018

This was our 2nd stay here, and we hope to stay here again in the future. This top floor property on the river front has an ideal location for a stay in Porto. The apartment is well equipped, and furnished with all you need. The owner, Fernando, is very welcoming and gives helpful advice about the city. The aircon works well, really useful in the hot weather. The kitchen is well equipped, although with all the nearby restaurants, we didn't do much cooking. Will definitely stay here again next time we are in Porto

Ed S Jun 2018

Porto was the last stop on our 2 week Portugal adventure. We dropped our car off at the airport and took a taxi to the river front where Fernando met us and showed us to our apartment. He took extra care to make sure we were oriented, recommended several excellent restaurants that we ate at, and gave advice on transportation early on our departure day. His communications and instructions made sure our stay was a memorable one. The apartment was in excellent condition, and had everything we needed to enjoy our time in Porto. We would love to come back and stay again.
