About this location

Northern Portugal region

Porto is Portugal's second city, situated on the mouth of the river Duoro as it flows into the Atlantic. It is a beautiful historic city which has Unesco World Heritage site status. Unspoilt, easy to explore along cobbled narrow streets, with great culture, shopping and eating. On June 24th there is the Festival of S. Joao with amazing firework displays from the bridges over the river and celebrations which go on all round our house. The climate is good (although it is fair to say it can rain in the winter) but in the summer it is never too hot because of fresh breezes from the river and the sea. There are good beaches and swimming both to the North and South of Porto. Portugal is known as the UK's "oldest ally" and the Port houses which produce Port are evidence of this. Still run by English families, these beautiful warehouses can be seen the other side of the river from the house and are well worth a visit - to learn about Port and to sample!

Porto

Our house is within easy walking distance of the main railway station Sao Bento from which it is possible to take a train to explore Portugal. A particulatrly lovely trip is up the river Duoro and you can see the vineyards for the Port wine (see above).

It is a two hour train journey to Lisbon. There are national parks and unspoilt countryside all around - for these a car is probably necessary but car hire is cheap.
