“Comfort and views in a great location”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in October 2018

We were wonderfully surprised at the lovely view from this apartment and how close it was to the riverfront and beaches - the photos don’t do it justice. Not only that, there are great bars and restaurants on the riverfront only about 200m from the door. The 500 bus runs frequently to the centre of Porto, taking only about 15 minutes. The apartment is spacious and airy and the bed was sooooo comfortable.

The photos don't really do this apartment justice. It is light and airy and has lots of space.
We had a great week here.
Afonso and Pedro made sure we had everything we needed to relax quickly into our holiday and were available without being intrusive. Ideal. We got a great guide to local amenities and plenty of maps and good advice on local restaurants.
The apartment is in a mainly residential block so quiet but the riverside at Foz with some bar/restaurants is a short walk down a few steps.
Foz itself has plenty to offer, all within strolling distance and we were happy to be based here.

There are plenty of buses and a couple of routes to Porto (15-20 mins) and you can get unlimited public transport for €15 for 3 days on an Andante card. Alternatively the vintage tram stop is a couple of minutes away (tram €2.50 per trip). It is a simple riverside walk to Porto old town too and took us 75 minutes with stops for photos along the way.

We enjoyed making use of the balcony, and the great views of the river, crashing Atlantic waves and passing fishing and sailing boats.
Kitchen was well equipped.
We booked airport transfers through the owners for convenience and that worked well too.
Would definitely recommend this apartment.We were sorry to leave.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This apartment provided just what my husband and I wanted from our holiday, a city break combined with some serious relaxation. It was very spacious, clean, in a quite residential area and had marvellous views from 3 rooms, its location where the river meets the sea was just perfect. Sometimes we walked the 5-6 km along the river into Porto, other times we took the old tram for 2.5 euros one way. If you walked the other way, you took in the various beaches (breezy and rocky) on the Atlantic coastline. Two very good supermarkets were a 10 minute walk away. The riverside is just 5 minutes down some steps from the apartment. We were looked after beautifully by Afonso and then latterly, Pedro. Afonso organised our pick-up from the airport which worked like clockwork and then, when we hit a problem of our own making, effortlessly resolved it for us, appearing within 5 minutes of our call for help. Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you.

“Wonderful apartment, great views”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This apartment has wonderful views of the river and ocean but is some way out of town. This suited us as we were on a private tour and were dropped off each night and picked up again next morning. Afonso, who manages the property, is incredibly quick to respond to any issues and was extremely helpful to us.

We cooked for ourselves each night but one. On that occasion, we went to a new restaurant (Pisca) by the river, a short walk away. It was excellent!

This is probably not where you want to stay if you haven't driven to Porto but it is possible to get to the centre of the city by tram during the day.

“Superb Porto by the Sea”

Great apartment and location where the river meets the sea. Comfortable and spacious with fantastic views from the kitchen, living room and bedroom. Plenty of buses, and the tram, 5 minutes walk away for central Porto taking 10 minutes. A great bakery down at the water front and good walks along the seafront. Afonso very helpful during our stay. Perfect for visiting the lovely city and having a seaside base. Why stay in a hotel with an apartment like this!
