Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We booked this flat after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor. We had already spent 2 nights in Porto so were able to see many of the city attractions. We took the metro from the city to General Torres station where we expected to find a taxi, but no luck so we had to hump our luggage down many steps...

About the neighbourhood
Modern residential area by the beach, fully served of restaurants, pubs, bars, night life, shopping centers, golf greens, marina, monuments, historic center, all at short distance. An extension of 15kms of white sand beaches in front of the apartment, cycling/jogging tracks at the coast which can lead you to the cellars of world’s famous Port wine, only 6km from the apartment.

A great place to spend your holidays, no matter you go for the beach, sightseeing, historic, monumental or river boat tour or if you mix with the local people, feel the beat of the city and experiment their food, wines, their way of living and their culture.

Definitely, it is not just fantastic for Summer but a great place to stay during the whole year.

The apartment is located a few metres from local seafront restaurants, bars and coffee shops, bakery with freshly baked bread and buns during the whole day; 800 metres from the mouth of Douro river where it meets with the Atlantic Ocean, that is also a habitat of many species of birds at the area; 5 km from shopping centers, 8 km from golf courses, 6 km from Oporto historical area or night life with pubs and live music.
