Première découverte de Porto en ce mois de mai. Nous avons fait le choix d'un appartement central (à quelques mètres du métro qui nous amène de l'aéroport et de tous les sites touristiques), à la décoration tendance et cosy, à partir des photos du site. Le contact avec José et Teresa a été très réactif et déterminant pour la réservation. Nous avons aussi rencontré Juan qui nous a accueilli et pris le temps de nous montrer les lieux à visiter et les restaurants. Nous avons été aussi enchantés par toutes les petites attentions qui font le charme de cette location. Et il y a aussi la ville de Porto pour laquelle nous avons eu un véritable coup de cœur. Nous reviendrons surement et très surement nous aurons plaisir à vous revoir José, Teresa et Juan. Merci pour tout, Jocelyne & Frédéric (France)
Jocelyne, merci pour votres aimables paroles :) Oui, nous faisons notre meilleur pour vous aider avec la decouverte de la ville pendant votre sejour. Et le bien-etre quand vous etez chez l'appartment est aussi un partie important de les vacances ;)
Merci et... à bientot!
Cordialement, José, Teresa et João
Amazing, amazing, amazing! Only great things to say. Our airline was having a pilot strike and we arrived at 4:30 in the morning. Jose had no problem letting us in at this time. He stayed up all night for us! So so kind. The place is modern, spacious, and clean. Great location. Also very quiet with a comfortable bed. Full recommendation.
The place itself is very nice, but what makes it brilliant - people who work in the apartment. Always open and smiling, Teresa made our stay in the city even more pleasant. Upon our arrival she made a brief presentation with must see places in Porto and gave recommendations on places to eat, which turned into a great meals and evenings. The apartment looks exactly like on the provided photos - bright, spacious, clean, with nice details and with all you might need in the kitchen and bathroom. Highly recommend this place for stay in Porto.
Ira, I got blushed reading such kind words. We hope we made our contribution for a great stay in this small, but lovely city. It was a pleasure to welcome such a nice family, remembering also your preety daughter and, of course, her happy frog :)
Best whishes, Teresa and José
My partner and I had a great stay and would be very happy to stay again without hesitation. The space was bright, comfortable and quiet. The kitchen and bathroom were very nice to use. The location was perfect by the market and the hosts were all very friendly. The wifi could be slightly better, but we use our computers a lot and it wasn't a huge issue.
Simply awesome! This is a place to stay in Porto! Excellent location, very nice, spacious, clean and cosy appartment, just like a real home! Teresa's help and guidance on the paces to see was extremely useful!
We'll definitely be back!
The apartment was a wonderful place from where to explore Porto. Most probably the best value for money in Porto: a great, spacious apartment (we were 2) in the best of locations: literally one minute walking from the station (which is connected directly to the airport).
Teresa and her colleagues were extremely helpful. Any question we had, whether it was about what or where to eat, what to visit or what to see: there was always an immediate answer.
I wouldn't recommend this place if we would come back to Porto, since I'd want this place to be for myself and unexplored. But; since we only have one life, I'm safe to say to any future tenants: this is the perfect place to visit the wonderful city that is Porto. No complaints whatsoever, we had a wonderful time.
City of Porto was wonderful, Bolhao apartment "Pumpkin" was wonderful, our host Teresa was wonderful and our stay - you are guessing - was wonderful!
We were welcomed by Teresa. She is amicable and helpful, kind of a host you can only wish when in unknown city. She gave us useful tips about where to go, what to see, how to get around and most importantly where to eat since Porto has delicious food.
The apartment was very clean, functional and it looked like exactly as on the pics which is something that happened to us for the first time. It is very homey and they paid attention to each and every detail.
When we come to Porto again we won't search for another accommodation, for sure!
