The Costa Verde region
Douro is a Portuguese wine region centered on the Douro River in the Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro region. It is sometimes referred to as the Alto Douro (upper Douro), as it is located some distance upstream from Porto, sheltered by mountain ranges from coastal influence. The region has Portugal's highest wine classification as a Denominação de Origem Controlada (DOC). While the region is associated primarily with Port wine production, the Douro produces just as much table wine (non-fortified wines) as it does fortified wine. The non-fortified wines are typically referred to as "Douro wines".
At "Flores" Street everything is very near. You can not lose the excellent environment of the river Douro, where the best restaurants with excellent Portuguese cuisine, bars to relax during the day and shake at night with many people in the street, go to the port wine cellars and taste this nectar of the gods, the house of music for concerts and a lot more to see here in Oporto.
Nearby you can find Clérigos Tower, Bolsa Palace, Ferreira Borges Market, visit the wine cellars of Porto and the Cais de Gaia simply walking across D. Luís Bridge and get the chance to do a Cruise in the River. You can find restaurants and bars from 1 minute walking from the apartment. The Bus stop it's just 4 minutes walking and the metro station at 200 meters. Nearby you can rent bicycles, program a guide visit and get the tram to the beach in a beautiful trip along the Douro river.
Nightlife is just at 500 meters with it's core at "Galerias de Paris".

"This place is in a fantastic location!"
This apartment is a little gem of a studio with everything you need, if you choose not to wander outside to one of the wonderful restaurants, the closest of which is run by a man called Paulo, and is right outside the front door.
The apartment is in a pedestrian street and is gorgeous inside, very modern, inside a classic, at a guess pre-1900 building, surrounded by many similar, some renovated, some about to be brought back to life.
Cristina and João met us at the apartment to show us around, and the Port in the decanter is a real nice touch.
The railway station and a tube stop are about 300 metres away as is the river, and pretty much anything else you need in Porto.
Walk up the hill and you can cross the bridge to where all the Port caves are on the other river bank, and that's a day gone if you're that way inclined.
We were only there for three days but there's loads to do and see. A great city and a great apartment.
