Well, it was my 1st time in Portugal. And Vania and her boyfriend were almost the first Portuguese I talked to. Absolutely nice people. Later on I discovered that this is true regarding 99% Portuguese, but it was later:)
The apartment is situated closer to a highway, which I wanted actually. But on the side street - so it is really quite place. And I had a car, so distance to the city center was not relevant for me.
The apartment is huge (new building), the room is fine for two, for me alone - it was a palace. The biggest shower cabin I've seen in my life is here!
They are very flexible regarding check-in and check-out. I came to them late at night and was VERY tired, so Vania's boyfriend nicely parked my car properly in their yard. This was a rented car , my 1st day with this car (drivers, you know what I mean) so he also helped me with some technical information on this model. And I got from them most information I asked for. E.g. regarding Fado place (Coimbra Fado differs from others).
They also have two nice cats, which have their own room! So enough space for everyone:) Very polite and shy animals.
I do strongly recommend the place.
Vania and Joao were very helpful, friendly hosts who were flexible with my group. Very easy to communicate with, highly recommended if you're ever in Coimbra!
There is basically nothing one could possibly reproach to this guys or apartment. Very nice people, cozy and completely new apartment not far from the historical centre of Coimbra.
Vania and Joao are extremely easygoing and willing to help with everything, nothing is a problem and you ll have much to talk about with them.
All above mentioned creates perfect condition for well known “arriving as a guest, leaving as friend" :)
