Wonderful views of Porto and the Douro

  • 5 of 5

Marc's apartment offers visitors an almost 360 degree view of Porto and the Douro. If we weren't getting up close to Porto and its history by walking up and down its steep hills, we were enjoying the tremendous vantage point from the balconies of the apartment. Everything was as advertised - lots of space, comfortable bedrooms (with views!), well equipped kitchen and modern bathrooms. It's in a very busy area with hordes of tourists but the street noise never reached beyond closed balcony doors. It's easy to walk and explore both sides of the river - be sure to climb up to the top of the Ponte Luis bridge. So many restaurants to choose from but we particularly enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Vinhas D'Alho (2 minutes from the apartment) and their wonderful Fado singers. Reservations a must. We used Uber to get around when we tired of walking up the hills - all the drivers were great. We were sad to have to leave Porto - we'll be back!

Huge, luxurious, best location in Porto - such great value for the money!

  • 5 of 5

We can't imagine a better rental in Porto! A very large two bedroom two bath apartment with full kitchen, dining room, and very large living room. Very modern and luxurious. Amazing location - only one block to the waterfront and a number of nearby restaurants. The master suite upstairs has a large deck with an amazing view of Porto, the bridge, and Gaia. Our only small disappointment is the apartment's lack of any essentials like coffee, sugar, paper towels, etc, in the kitchen and shower soap or shampoo in the bathrooms. Not a big deal, but renters should be prepared (or go to a nearby store).

Owner's Response: Thanks. We do provide essentials, probably the cleaning lady has forgot to refill it. In such cases, please ask and we will be glad to provide.

Perfect Porto Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Wow. This place is awesome! It is literally the nicest HomeAway apartment that I have stayed in over the last 10 yrs. The location is fantastic. The views from the upstairs bedroom are spectacular. It is clean and modern and spacious. I really can not say enough about how beautiful the views are from this place. Everything was perfect.
