A little history about the city of Porto:
Port has always been a market town, and this is evident in the style of the buildings lining the Avenida dos Aliados, the core of the city center.
The city center, unlike other major Portuguese cities that tend to the baroque, is granite and monumental.
The city is quite varied in relation to architecture, where the medieval and the modern, live harmoniously side by side.
The Geography of Porto is hard on the feet, but pleasing to the eye.
The city is extremely hilly, with many buildings built on a cliff overlooking the river, as the apartment is located.
Port awaits you, visit us!

Reviews of this property
Nice and new apartment very close to the Old city center.
The view from the apartment is amazing indeed! Not only during the day, but also during the night.
Strong and fast Wifi.
We found the double bed in the first bedroom very comfortable (although we would have turned it by 90 degrees to have better access)
Service / support from Luis is outstanding.
We note that there is only 1 toilet and since this is located inside the bathroom, this is not ideal for large families (especially when they have daughters;-)
Awesome reception, Luis was still up at midnight to give us the keys and show us the apartment. The flat was clean, well located and equipped. Really recommended!
The appartment has a lot of space, is very new and fully equipped (coffee machine, DVD player with different DVD's and lot of music to watch and hear if you want to...). The balcony is really cool! And Luis was really nice, even when we arrived a bit late to the appartment. You can walk to the city centre in 10 minutes. I would completely recommend this appartment to visit Porto.
Beautiful appartement with a lot of space, close to the highlights of the city. Luis is a very nice host and everything was okay. We love to come back, but then for a longer stay :).
We had a great time in Porto, and Luis Apartment is the perfect place to stay. It is very close to the centre, everything is in a walking distance, and it is also very quiet, so you can get a good nights sleep. The view from the balcony is fantastic with the Douro and Ponte Luis.
The apartment has everything you need. Luis is a great host, very helpful og responds instantly.
We hope to come back another time.

we enjoyed our time in Porto, especially your apartment, very much!
it was a place to rest, to relax and to get new power for the next trip to the surrounding area. The equipment was high class, different coffee machines, micro wave, washing machine ... everything worked fine. Even TV, CD player etc. is there (we didn't use it, there's no need for it within a few days in Porto).
Our personel highlight was the balcony, with a wonderful view to the Douro, the Ponte de Dom Luis I., Vila Nova da Gaia ...
It's a place, from where you really have the opportunities, to discover Porto with all his amazing impressions. And the best ... it's all possible by feet. And this is the way, you should do it!
And, if you're tired afterwards, you know, where to relax.
Best regards and thanks

What an amazing apartment. Close to the metro Sao Bento and near the center of the old town. The stairs (281 steps) down the narrow streets of the old town as you stood on the boulevard by the river Douro. In the apartment, everything was there and it was very cozy. Enjoying a glass of wine you had on the balcony a nice view of the Douro. Luis is a great host. We were over an hour late but he was waiting for us nicely. He explained everything, even where the beautiful things were and where you could eat. Overall a great friendly host of beautiful apartment where we definitely will return, because there is still a lot to see in the beautiful city of Porto.
Wat een geweldig appartement. Dicht bij de metro Sao Bento en dicht bij het centrum van de oude stad. Met de trap (281 treden) naar beneden door de smalle straatjes van de oude stad stond je zo op de boulevard bij de rivier de Douro. In het appartement was alles aanwezig en het was er zeer gezellig ingericht. Genietend van een wijntje had je op het balcon een mooi uitzicht op de Douro. Luis is een geweldige host. Wij waren ruim een uur te laat maar hij stond ons mooi op te wachten. Hij heeft alles uitgelegd, ook waar de mooie dingen waren en waar je lekker kon eten. Kortom een geweldige vriendelijke host van een prachtig appartement waar wij zeker terug zullen keren, want er is nog veel te zien in de mooie stad Porto.
Very good stay in Porto, the apartment is very nice and well located. Luis is very welcoming and friendly
Très bon séjour à Porto, l'appartement est très agréable et bien situé. Luis est très accueillant et sympatique
We got an excellent warm welcome! The apartment is neat and had everything we needed including an amazing view onto the bridge Ponte Luiz 1. The apartment and surroundings are quiet and the rolling shutters make the bedroom pitch-dark. The station Soa Bento is less then a 10 minutes walk. So is the old city, the bus stop to Campanha (if you want to visit Coimbra) and the supermarket. The communication with Luis went very smooth. He organized a taxi for us on the day of departure and the three of us went home with a smile on our faces!
