About the property

Apartment with Fabulous Views

Enjoy these quiet and refurbished apartments where all the rooms have great views over the city, the port wine lodges, the river Douro and Luis I bridge. Both apartments have a spacious living/dining area.

The building is located in an iconic building in the historic city centre, on the hill, halfway between the Cathedral of Porto and Luis I bridge, in Ribeira. To the apartments there is pedestrian access only, along 80 steps/stairs, either down from the Cathedral or up from the river. It may be a drawback if you have mobility concerns, but it does afford you privacy, peacefulness and fabulous views in one of the most genuine quarters of Porto :-)

They are at 2 minutes walk from the famous Ribeira with its restaurants, bars and boat trips, 2 minutes from the cathedral, and 7 minutes from São Bento station.

A great find. Lovely apartment with fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment in a beautiful city.

Claudia met us at the Metro station and took us to the accommodation.

Spotlessly clean and very comfortable; the views over the River Douro are certainly "fabulous"! We really appreciated the extra touches, like the provision of milk and water for our arrival, and even chocolates on the bed!

There is so much to explore in this historic city--- and of course plenty of port to taste! Beautiful churches, amazing bridges, great restaurants; and so much more. THANK YOU.
