Amanda and I have come back from a relaxing and really interesting 5 days in Porto. Eduardo and Alexandra's apartment is all we wanted. It is spacious, well laid out, clean, and very comfortable. The wood burning stove for which Eduardo provided wood was a real treat. We slept so well. A bit too well. Getting up for long runs on the promenade to central Porto, returning for a late breakfast, before heading out to experience the delightful Porto. The location of apartment is great. Foz is charming and is blessed with a number of excellent restaurants and independent shops. Public transport to central Porto is frequent and easy. It's only a 5k/15 minute journey on the bus. You could even walk it in an hour if you fancied. Thank you Eduardo and Alexandra; our stay was fantastic.
Alexandra's studio was quite delightful and very well equipped. We found Alexandra very helpful in recommending places to visit and places to eat. It was good being able to use the bicycles too!
We have spent such a lovely time in Porto.
As an introduction, I totally recommend this destination. This town is beautiful, the weather was perfect, we spent 3 days eating grilled sardines :) and biking here and there, nice people all over the place even though we didn't speak portuguese. Well, the list goes on and on.
The flat is awesome, real clean with tasty decorations, a really nice kitchen, great beds. You have here anything that you need to cook. A beautiful lighting comes in. The garden is always in the sun light and there are flowers everywhere and if you're looking for colors, you just need to stand outside. It's peaceful.
The apartment is located in a typical (I suppose) porto old area and I don't have words to describe how charming it is.
It's a great location because you are between the sea and the town.
Easy to find when we first arrived.
When you arrive, Alexandra and her Husband are welcoming you properly and you can feel that those people are kind. They gave us bikes and it was such a great idea ! Alexandra took the time to show us many things on the map and explained to us things about the town and about the Sao Joao, the celebration they do there every year. She sent me a list with restaurants and this list had perfect details on.
Thanks again Alexandra, and we will come back !
Alexandra and her husband are also wonderful persons, and their studio in Foz is a great place to rest and discover Porto. Although we have some rainy days, we could enjoy the incredible views of the ocean from the coastline and from the castle. The neighborhood is full of charm and it's very easy to get to Porto downtown by bus. You can also take the historic tramway.
Alexandra is very kind and is always there to help you and to take any measure to make your stay more enjoyable.
We highly recommend Studio Foz to rest, enjoy local charm and discover unforgettable Porto.
Alexandra is a very good host she helped us on what to do around, she also gave us very useful bikes :)
The place is very cute and very well located to me Foz in the best neighborhood to stay in Porto
I recommend her place a lot
Our stay at Alexandra's place was wonderful. Alexandra was really patient and took the time to provides us with a lot of informations and hints for restaurant and things to do. We really appreciate. The apartment is super nice with everything you need, even a cosy fireplace! There are also bikes, and you can do so nice tours. We will definitely book this place again when we come back to Porto and also recommend it to friends and family. Thank you
Wonderful! The studio is perfect with all the necessities and many luxuries on hand. Very comfortable beds and the fireplace was beautiful in the cool nights.
Alexandra was a great host - she welcomed us warmly, made sure we had all the information needed and when she found out we liked local experiences, sent me a long list of restaurant/eateries suggestions. And a late night request for more wood was quickly filled with a smile.
Our time in Porto was great in part because of this place. Thank you, Alexandra.
Alexandra gave us a wonderful journey. She is a perfect hostess and tour guide for us in Porto. She recepted us late at night, kindly prepared food in the fridge, and gave us useful information for touring. We spent two days in Porto and it was wonderful. She also lent us two bikes for cycling to the beach nearby, and ordered a taxi to pick us to the airport in the last day. We could not expect more from her. It is a lovely studio with a great location - it is located in a peaceful area, which can access to the city center by bus very conveniently. It is very very neat and clean. I love the decoration inside, as well as the nice small garden. I would love to go back to Alexandra in my journey to Porto next time! Five stars!
Alexandra is the perfect host. She is wonderful in giving us all the informations we need to have an enjoyable stay in porto.The flat near the sea in an historic place is perfect for exploring the town. The apartment is quiet , very clean, nice and confortable. When we come back to Porto, we'lll stay again in this studio.
Apartment very clean and equipped with every comfort, located in a quiet and peaceful area. Alexandra has even provided us with the basic condiments for cooking and a bottle of milk, water, bread, butter, jam, ham. If I were to return to Porto would stay in this apartment. I recommend it to everyone.
