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. And Porto being a very dense city, you are actually 10 min away from its city centre by car!
Guests have access to everything in the apartment. There is all kind of modern equipment, baby facilities and games and books in seven languages. Please understand that this is the reason why I need to ask for a deposit.
I will not interact much as I am renting the apartment in periods where I am absent. I will leave everything in the apartment according to your needs.
It is a mixture of city and countryside. Thanks to the building's position (in a cul-de-sac) there is no traffic at all and all you see is fields around you. But make 100m and you are on the main streets, with public transportation.
As you go further the more exciting locations are naturally related to the water - ocean or river. Fisherman village Afurada, especially since its new Marina has been achieved, is an exciting clash of very old village culture and chic and modern. The seashore, where special efforts have been taken in order to preserve the dunes, has countless restaurants and bars. These beaches are definitely surfer beaches! And there is a golf in Miramar, some 5km further south.
Public transportation (STCP bus line 902) to Porto center, bus stop 100m away from the house.

"A beautiful welcome, beautiful apartment and amazing views"
We were welcomed by Emmanuela who was a beautiful lady. The apartment was stunning and spotless and had all we required for our stay. We were welcomed with a ten year old bottle of port and biscuits. … More
