About Mario Junior

Hello, my name is Mário Júnior and I have been living in Porto for 40 years. Born in Angola, I was raised in Porto ever since and so I consider myself a true connoisseur of the city. I am a professional translator and interpreter. An enthusiast of outdoor walks, I particularly enjoy organising visits and bike tours and explore the city. Above all, I hope you make the most of your stay.

Mario Junior purchased this apartment in 2015

What makes this apartment unique

Despite being located in the heart of the city, this building stands in one of the safest areas of the city. With a lot of high street humdrum during the day, there is much to do: stroll along the parks, visit the traditional trade shops, pay a short visit to the El Corte Inglés department store or enjoy a good meal in one of the many cafes available.

Although very close to the nightlife (about 10 minutes away on foot), the building is located distant enough so as not to disturb your rest and comfort.

El propietario tiene un trato excelente y unos detalles geniales. La casa es tal y como se ve en las fotos, o incluso mejor. Está a unos quince minutos andando del puente de Luis I y del centro de la ciudad, aunque si coges el metro que para prácticamente en la puerta de la casa no tardas ni a cinco minutos.

Fuimos un grupo de nueve personas y la casa era perfecta para ese número. Muy espaciosa y cómoda.

En definitiva, estamos encantados con ella.

4 day's stay in Porto march 2016 with 5 persons

  • 4 of 5

It's a very nice and clean appartment in beautiful old style. Close to bus/ metro, shops and centre.

Received good information (sms) how to get at the apartment by metro from the airport.

We had a three day card fot metro and bus for Porto (Tourist Information).

Appartment lies close to Port-cellars.

Old tram to the sea is very nice.

Restaurant chez nous (in centre) is very good.

Decoração 5*

  • 3 of 5

Boa localização apesar de não ser na Sé.

O apartamento tem uma decoração muito interessante, é acolhedor, está equipado com todas as utilidades necessárias, mas a parte do aquecimento central deixa um pouco a desejar....

Uma ótima casa!!!

  • 5 of 5

A casa é exatamente igual às fotografias. É uma casa grande e muito bem decorada. Encontrava-se super limpa e pronta para nos receber.

A localização é ótima, uma vez que se encontra numa avenida principal onde há tudo o que precisamos. Temos o metro mesmo à porta e em poucos minutos chegamos ao centro do Porto.

Tanto o Mário como a Márcia são muitos disponíveis.

Muito obrigada!

Located in the centre of the Porto district, this apartment promises to make your stay extraordinary. With wide spaces and a modern décor combined with traditional design, this space aims to provide your stay in Porto with a sophisticated, rustic and comfortable tone.


Only 5 minutes away by metro from downtown Porto, this space enjoys an ideal location at Avenida da República, within the urban centre and close to the best department store in the city of Porto, El Corte Inglés, and 15 minutes away from Gaia's Cable Car. If you wish to visit the city's landmark, the famous Torre dos Clérigos (Tower of the Clerics), please know that it will take you only 25 minutes on foot to get to the most emblematic monument of the city of Porto.


The space is also 30 seconds away on foot from the nearest metro station, 5 minutes away from the train station of General Torres and 20 minutes away from the International Airport Francisco Sá Carneiro. If it's more of your liking, you will also find a taxi rank and bus stops just outside the building.


Being Porto the city of Port wine par excellence, this apartment is just 15 minutes away, on foot, from the Cais de Gaia (Gaia's Pier) and of the main Caves de Vinho do Porto (Port Wine Cellars). There, you will also have access to a significant cluster of restaurants and bars that feed Porto's nightlife.


If, on the other hand, you are more keen on nature, the surrounding area is full of traditional shops and green spaces, suggestive of long walks. The pedestrian crossing along the D. Luiz bridge over the Douro is also a great alternative and an almost mandatory activity during your stay in the city of Porto. You may also enjoy the best view of the city from a belvedere which stands within a 10-minute walk from the apartment. The Monastery of the Serra of Pilar is a must to capture some of the best photos of the city or enjoy a romantic moment with your better-half. If the weather allows, you may still pay a brief visit to the beach located just a few minutes away by car or taxi or to the natural bird-watching observatory in the waterfront of the parish of Afurada.
