The Rabelo boat is a traditional Portuguese boat, which for centuries held the job of transporting people and goods along the river Douro. It is native of the Douro region; it exists nowhere else in the world. Its history is closely linked to the production and trade of Port Wine. Although no longer in use, we can still admire these graceful vessels belonging to Port Wine Companies on the banks of the River Douro, in the cities of Porto and Gaia.

Due to its excellent location the Rabelo apartment at the riverfront is perfect for exploring the historical center, it is surrounded by cafes and shops that make this area one of the main tourist areas of the city. Here everything is accessible within a short walk to the main tourist attractions of the city located within a 15 minute walk, the Church of San Francisco, São Bento Station, Avenue of the Allies, Porto Cathedral, etc.., and within walking distance to Gaia/ Port caves.

Animation during the day and night gives the Ribeira and the surrounding areas a unique touch of history, tradition, excitement and beauty.

You just need the time and curiosity to see what the city has to show .... either for a few days, a weekend or a week.

-Free public parking around the apartment, as well as a paid parking site directly in front of the apartment, there is public transportation (buses, electric tram & metro) to the various attractions, beaches and nearby towns.

“The most fantastic service, best location, and sweetest amenities!”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2014

This is all you need to know: the best location to stay in Porto, being Porto, is directly on the river across from the port cellars and around the corner from the old town. The Sao Francisco and the Tree of Jesse two minutes away and another two minutes to the Cathedral District. The best apartment to have is one that is fitted is if you designed it, put all your heart into it, own it and ensured it has all the amenities you want in an apartment. The best host you can have is someone who lays out all your best economical and tasteful options, regardless of your style, has high energy, is generous, thinks as a guest and is very available. This is Cristina and her family's apartment. She turned us on to the francesinha, the total local sandwich, at the Verso Em Pedra downstairs. She and her family waited for us and saved us a free parking spot to save us a couple euros across the street. She took us to a cafe 50 meters away for a cappuccino and toast breakfast special for 1.40 euros. She laid out the specific routes for the port wine experience. The apartment. The view of the port boats on the river, in our face, not peekaboo. Juice, Keurig, treats for us to our heart's content. Found out where were were going next and led us by phone along a remote road to one of our best meals in Portugal. It's more than where we stayed, it was how it was delivered.
