Use the fully-equipped kitchen to prepare home cooked meals.
The São Bento Metro Station is a 4-minute walk away and offers connection to Oporto Airport and across Porto City. The historic Clerigos Tower and Lello Library are both a 5-minute walk away.
Next to the apartment are a selection of supermarkets, restaurants and bars among other amenities.

Cristina & John are very nice and helpful people, giving lots of information at arrival. House in the middle of Porto old town (pedestrian zone), many nice shops, bars and restaurants in the neighborhood, very close to the river and many sightseeing spots. Don't bring a car, parking is difficult. Flat very clean and decent, well-equipped. Only one negative point: the ventilation of the downstairs restaurant is somewhat annoying, since it's close to the windows and runs half of the night.
Anyway: Thanks for the nice stay, we enjoyed Porto very much!
We spent three days with our baby a year and a half in this apartment.
We arrived about an hour and a half later than expected due to a flight delay and Cristina & John very kindly waited for us to give us the keys accompanied by a glass of port wine "thank you very much !!". They provided maps and a dossier with areas of interest (restaurants, wineries, supermarkets ...) and all this is appreciated when you arrive in a new city.
Very nice and clean apartment with everything you need, though perhaps a television to distract the small at times would have been nice.
Regarding location, just say it's excellent! (Close to everything) and only downside say that just below a bar / restaurant that puts music speaker on the street, which made our first night we could not sleep until 00:00 because of a tour group extremely elated, but our baby and found out !!!!. The other days the music was bearable.
Pasamos tres días con nuestro bebe de un año y medio en este apartamento.
Llegamos cerca de una hora y media más tarde de lo previsto por culpa de un retraso en el vuelo y Cristina & John nos esperaron muy amablemente para darnos las llaves acompañado de una copita de vino de oporto " muchas gracias!!". Nos facilitaron mapas y un dossier con zonas de interés ( restaurantes ,bodegas, supermercados...) y todo esto se agradece cuando llegas a una ciudad nueva.
El apartamento muy bonito y limpio con todo lo necesario, aunque quizás una televisión para distraer al pequeño en algunos momentos hubiera estado bien.
Respecto a la ubicación, sólo decir que es excelente! ( cerca de TODO) como única pega decir que justo debajo hay un bar/restaurante que pone música con altavoz en la calle, cosa que hizo que nuestra primera noche no pudiéramos conciliar el sueño hasta las 00:00 por culpa de un grupo de turistas extremadamente eufóricos, aunque nuestro bebé ni se enteró!!!!. El resto de días la música era soportable.
I have stayed in several rented flats through Wimdu and other similar sites in several different countries and this was my best experience so far. Christina and João were welcoming, professional, and comprehensive. I had immediate responses to text messages upon arrival to Porto to provide accurate descriptions for arrival to the flat and they were there to greet me at the time they said they would be. Amazingly, these details which might appear simple to fulfil, are often forgotten about or messed up entirely by hosts. Before leaving us, Christina and João made sure we were comfortable and had everything that we needed. This included a comprehensive list of printed recommendations of bars, restaurants, activities and suggestions for our stay.
The flat itself was beautiful. A modern conversion in an old building which the photos don't really do justice. There is a big entrance space that leads to a large bedroom (very comfortable queen sized bed), a perfectly proportioned bathroom (great shower and bathtub, bidet), and a kitchen/living room. The bedroom and the kitchen/living room had floor to ceiling windows that looked out on the old buildings at the edge of the old district of Porto and let in beautiful natural light in the morning. The location of the flat was perfect, with everything in walking distance.
I would not hesitate to stay here again. 10/10.
We very much enjoyed our stay. Nice welcome, clean and nice apartment in a charming street and central location in the center!
We hebben erg genoten van ons verblijf. Prettig ontvangst, schoon en leuk appartement in een sfeervol straatje en centrale lokatie in het centrum!
Great apartment, very sweet and romantic. Best location! and above all quiet. The apartment is equipped with everything you need. Cristina and her husband are very kind !!
We will in turn that's for sure!
Tolle Wohnung, sehr süß und romantisch. Beste Lage! und vorallem ruhig. Die Wohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet was man so braucht. Cristina und ihr Mann sind sehr liebenswürdig!!
Wir kommen wieder- das ist schon mal sicher!
We can definitely recommend this apartment.
The location is great (many attractions are within walking distance).
We were warmly welcomed and provided with valuable tips.
wir können diese Wohnung definitiv empfehlen.
Die Lage ist super (viele Sehenswürdigkeiten können zu Fuß erreicht werden).
Wir wurden herzlich empfangen und mit wertvollen Tipps versorgt.
Wonderful hosts, both Cristina et her husband John. The directions to get to the apartment could not have been more accurate. Then during our 1st meeting they gave us very useful information on restaurants (which we visited and which were excellent). They also told us about a Fado dinner night, but when there was no Fado that night they looked for another place. We called immediately and booked the last table. It was fabulous! Many many thanks!
We stayed in Porto for a week and we really felt at home in this appartment. The kitchen was well equipped with all the tools you might need to cook a meal or make an espresso or tea. Christina and her family gave us a warm welcome, some advice about where to go and contacts to go surfing.
Even though during the day there was roadwork in front of the house, it did not bother us, since the appartement was located on the other side of the building. (Besides, the work seemed to progress quickly.) Instead we enjoyed waking up to the sounds of seagulls and church bells.
From the appartement you can easily walk the whole old town or simply use the close by public transportation to reach more dinstant locations. We strongly recommend trying it out for yourselves and have a great time experiencing Porto!
it was a very nice holiday in this nice, clean flat, with a great view to the cathedral, especially in the night. 5 minutes to the river and the center, 2 minutes to the bus to the beach. the hosts are very sympatic and helpful. we would book it again. thank you very much!!
We had a wonderful time in this large three-bedroom apartment. The
benevolent ribbon windows overlook the Parque da Cidade and the
Atlantic Ocean. The old fishing village Matosinhos with very good and
inexpensive restaurants is at walking distance. Matosinhos is the
hometown of Portugal’s most prominent modern-day architect: Álvaro
Siza Vieira. The village houses a couple of his early works, such as
the Boa Nova tea house and a swimming pool overlooking the sea at Leça
de Palmeira. But the metropolis of Porto is not far away. The metro
line takes less than half an hour to reach the city center with its
broad vistas, small alleys in the medieval town called Ribeira and its
wonderful bridges over the river Douro. Porto, a city to fall in love
