About the property


Two bedroom apartment with 60 m2 on a second floor, located on the river front (at the front) 2.5 km from Ribeira and the Historic Center of Porto, and 2 kms from the mouth and the sea.

You can walk, bike or catch the tourist tram (every 20 minutes) or the bus (every 12 minutes) to enjoy the whole stretch of the river, in an open and sunny landscape, from where the old town has grown in towards the hills.

It is a good choice for a pleasant trip in Porto, in a fully equipped apartment (oven, microwave, refrigerator, pots, washing machine, kettle, toaster, coffee maker, hairdryer, TV with 90 channels and free Wi-Fi with 30 MB, towels, bath mats and accessories for 4 people). Capacity for 4 people in two bedrooms (one with double bed and one with two single beds). Baby cot available on request. A large living room (20m2) with a modern and functional decoration.

From the windows you can get one of the best views of Porto halfway between Ribeira and Foz. Stunning view of the river Douro to the sea, Arrábida Bridge and Center. An apartment located in a zone of traditional fishermen, 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 in front of the apartment, to visit Afurada (a fishing village) in Gaia.

The apartment was decorated and refurbished to offer you a pleasant and modern look, with vestiges of the old culture and soul of Porto.

All images shown on the site were taken from inside the apartment or just near the outer wall of the building.

We can arrange one way transportation to the airport.

Commitment to respond quickly to all questions by email within a maximum of 30 minutes (during the day).

No late check-in fees.

Taxi Service Airport / Apartment available for 18 € (22 € on weekends and nights)

Sauberkeit der Wohnung ließ teils zu wünschen übrig,

  • 2 of 5

Positiv: Lage am Douro-Ufer, gute Verkehrsanbindung, Parkplätze in der Nähe verfügbar, saubere Handtücher und Bettwäsche, geräumige Wohnung.

Negativ und ärgerlich: Im Angebot wurde nicht auf 27 steile Treppenstufen hingewiesen, wodurch die Wohnung für Senioren und Behinderte eher nicht geeignet ist. Die Sauberkeit der Wohnung ließ teilweise zu wünschen übrig, Haare auf dem Boden bzw .Teppich, Schimmel im Bade“zimmer“ (ca. 2 qm). Dusche eklig mit Haaren, abgeplatzten Mosaiksteinen, Schimmel. Wegen nicht richtig ablaufendem Wasser die Dusche nur einmal benutzt. Nicht funktionierende Lampen in Bad und Kühlschrank. Kühlschrank war nicht gesäubert und nicht abgetaut, also Eispanzer und Kondenswasser. Essensreste v. Vormieter unter der Microwelle: gut für 1 Cucarracha auf der Arbeitsplatte in der Küche, die leider zu schnell hinter dem Schrank verschwand. Möbel zwar stylisch, aber Ikea-Niveau oder ältere Teile, na ja… Wartungsintervall für Feuerlöscher 2016 abgelaufen. Keine Rauchmelder in der Wohnung.

Nach Beanstandung am ersten Tag äußerte Besitzer zwar Bedauern („letzte Cucarracha vor einem Jahr. Ende des Jahres kommt neuer Kühlschrank“), aber Meldung zu Schmutz blieb unbeantwortet. Nicht hilfreich.
