Two bedroom apartment, with 60 m2 in a second floor, located on riverside (forefront) at 2,5 kms. of Ribeira and Porto Historical Center, and at 2 kms. from the river mouth and the sea.
You can walk, cycle or take the touristic electrical tram (every 20 minutes) or the bus (every 12 minutes) to appreciate all the river band, in an open and sunny landscape, from where the old town has grown towards the hills.
Good choice for a pleasant journey in Porto, in a completely equipped apartment (oven, microwave, fridge, cookware, washing machine, kettle, toaster, coffee maker, "expresso" machine, hairdryer, TV with 90 channels, and free Wi-Fi with 30 MB, towels, bath mats and accessories for 4 people). Capacity for 4 individuals in two bedrooms (one with a double bed and another with two single beds). One large living room (20m2) with a modern and functional decoration.
From the windows you can get one of the best views of Porto midway between Ribeira and Foz. Gorgeous view to the Douro river to the sea, Arrábida Bridge and the Center. An apartment located in a traditional fishermen zone, where, even today, you can breathe the scents of the river and the sea mixed with aromas of fresh fruit. You can even cross the river by boat, which stops right in front of the apartment, to visit Afurada (a fisherman village), in Gaia.
The apartment has been decorated and refurnished to offer you a pleasant and modern look with traces of the old Porto culture and soul.

Paulo is the perfect host, we immediately felt very welcome and he gave us great tips. The apartment is beautiful, located just in-between the sea and the city. The view over the river is amazing and the apartment is clean and comfy. Great beds and fully equipped kitchen. Also, it was very easy to arrange our arrival and when we left we could stay in until the evening which was really convenient. Highly recommend this place!
Eurico is the perfect host. He answers quickly when you ask something. He's really friendly. We even got a welcome treat.
The apartment is really nice. There were a few shortcomings, but they know of it, and told us they plan to fix it.
It's a very nice environment, just outside the city center.
We had a good time!
Excellent stay in Porto.
The apartment is convenient and very comfortable : well equipped and with beautiful views.Near the historic center and all the mobility.
Thank you, Paulo & Eurico, for the warm welcome and good advice.

very nice people with good recommondations for dinner and trips. Nice, clean and cosy appartment.
This apartment has an amazing location, with beautiful views! You can see the sun come up in the morning and go down in the evening from you bedroom window, walk distance to the atlantic sea and to the historical city centre.
Very nice local atmosphere, with a small bar (drinks only 1 euro) just next to the apartment playing live Fado music every Tuesday afternoon, a riverside located coffee kiosk opened from very early in the morning and a small cafe with the best home made muffins (still warm :-)) just around the corner. Just in front of the apartment, the historical electric tram (very cute!) passes by and also bus 500 going from the beach/local fish restaurants (Matosinhos) to the historical centre and back stops very near by. Not to forget, the apartment itself is very practical, clean and cosy at the same time, also the hosts Paulo and Eurico are very helpful and friendly :-)
Très bel appartement lumineux avec une belle vue sur le Douro
Le Tram électrique passe juste en bas de la maison trés pratique. Car l'appartement est a 25 mn a pied du vieux Porto .Attention le soir le tram s'arrête tôt 20h45 mais vous pouvez rentrer en taxi 5 euros a partir de la place de l'infente.
Il y a un supermarché a 10 mn de l'appartement .
Paulo est très sympathique et nous accueille avec un très bon blanco verde et de la tapenade verte et nous prodigue quelques conseils et des bonnes adresses.
Je recommande cet appartement
Eurico hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen und das Apartment entspricht den Bildern.Zur Altstadt läuft man etwas länger als erwartet.
El apartamento está a 100 metros de la desembocadura del Duero, es decir, que te asomas por la ventana y lo puedes ver allí mismo, sin que nadie te lo cuente. La situación del apartamento puede no ser la mejor, pero esto se salva co una parada de autobús enfrente de la puerta que te lleva, según prefieras, al centro de Oporto o a Matosinhos. gracias a ello no he tenido que tocar mi coche durante nuestra estancia.
El apartamento está recién reformado, con muy buen gusto y todo aquéllo que se necesita para la vida diaria. 3 supermercados en un radio de 500 metros.
El anfitrón, Eurico, es una persona amable y muy educada. Nos hizo un recibimiento estupendo y demostró conocer las reglas de la hospitalidad.
En resumen, todo fenomenal
Eurico a été super!! L'accueil, sa disponibilité sa gentillesse bref quelqu'un de très bien. L'appartement est très bien nous étions 4. Il correspond parfaitement à sa description. Il est en plus très facile de se garer. Il faut compter 30' a pied pour aller au centre historique de porto.
Super séjour et super hôte.
Apartment is well located in inner City of Porto and the host is very friendly. Unfortunately there is a disco nearby in the neighbourhood,that is a little bit loud on weekend nights.
