Great place for adults to stay to explore Porto

  • 5 of 5

Location - easy walking distance to city centre - Porto is quite hilly so be prepared. We had one person in the group who struggled to walk back so he got a taxi back. Make sure you have the address and/or a map with you to show the taxi driver where you are staying. It cost approx 5 euros for a taxi back to the house.

Layout - the house is on three floors and is magnificent. It has recently been renovated and was in excellent condition throughout. A huge central staircase gets you up to the top to the kitchen and access to the outside garden. It was lovely to relax in the shade in the garden for breakfast or after a day in Porto.

Amenities - the house is split into 5 guest rooms which all have an ensuite and a kitchenette. Each room was exceptionally clean and the bed linen was spotless. There was also air con in each bedroom which came in very useful since it hit 35C while we were there (July 2016) . We hired the whole house so were able to use the upstairs kitchen and garden each day. The kitchen was well equipped.

Catarina arranged a pick up for us at the airport. She met us at the house and provided breakfast for the next day. She recommended a nearby restaurant for an evening meal, took me down and booked us in. She told us to call her if there were any problems but we didn't have any. The restaurant was excellent and made a great finish to a long day. She called in with the local speciality of custard tarts over the weekend, and was also there to say goodbye as we left. She couldn't have done more to ensure we enjoyed our stay.

Recommendation - I would recommend this accommodation to family and friends as long as there were no small children and everyone was mobile.

Restaurants - The nearest one was called Casa Nanda (down the hill, first restaurant on the left). Excellent local food. The nearest one going up the hill was on the right hand side at the top of a hotel and called Restaurante Portucale. We went in and checked out the wonderful panoramic views across Porto but decided it was too expensive for us. Instead we kept on going up the road and went in the next restaurant on the right hand side called Restaurante Solar D'Allegria (opposite Mourinho's cafe) . This was very reasonably priced and again served excellent food. The starters were huge and the service was very good. (So good we went again on our last night.)

Porto is a fantastic city to explore and the local people are very friendly. Would definitely like to return.
