Overview
Condo/Apartment -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Vila Nova de Gaia, Porto District, Northern Portugal
An exceptionally well designed apartment at a beautiful location. I is a 4-room apartment, not a 1-room apartment! Huge and lively kitchen, a big sunny living room with a balcony sheltered from the wind. The outlet of Douro River within walking distance. Ocean and nature view from all the windows.


The location is very special. It is very close to the outlet of Douro River, on the Gaia side (opposite to Porto city). It is on a small hill so you do see water - river or ocean - from every window. A 10 min walk takes you to a nature reserve with bird observatories. From there a few extra steps to the left: you are in front of the ocean. A few steps to the right on the other hand take you to lovely fisherman's village Afurada with fantastic views of Porto and the Douro river upstream.

About the neighbourhood
The location is very special. It is very close to the outlet of Douro River, on the Gaia side (opposite to Porto city). It is on a small hill so you do see water - river or ocean - from every window. A 10 min walk takes you to a nature reserve with bird observatories. From there a few extra steps to the left: you are in front of the ocean. A few steps to the right on the other hand take you to lovely fisherman's village Afurada with fantastic views of Porto and the Douro river upstream. And Porto being a very dense city, you are actually 10 min away from its city centre by car!
Getting around
You have a bus stop of busline STCP 902 that take you directly to the centre of Porto, or to the Lavadores beach. Also from Afurada (at a comfortable walking distance) there is a little ferry that takes you to Foz, on the Porto side of the river!
Access
Car advised
How to get there
You can come to the apartment by public transportation. Take the metro line until 'Casa da Musica', in the same station above earth you find a bus terminal. Take busline STCP 902 direction 'Praia de Lavadores', and exit a few stops before the end, at 'Alumiara'.
But please keep in mind that it will take a pretty long time, at least an hour and a half. Alternately, take a cab or an Uber and do the same track in half an hour. Uber shouldn't cost more that 20€.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive.
