About This Listing
Old house restored by unique architecture with plenty of light in the historical Leça da Palmeira, a 1 minute walk from the cruise, 5 minutes walk from the beach, 10 minutes walk from the metro, 10 minutes drive from the airport, 10 minutes Sealife and the 5 minutes from shopping. Close to everything but with the quiet seaside village that the national point of reference of the surf that smells of sea and lets you see seagulls flying on the terrace can offer. At night the mixture of smells of grilled fresh fish opens the appetite. The wine fresh aid in hydration. Very close walk has numerous restaurants for all tastes from full plates to 6 euros and made the most highly displaying its all-star Michelan to prove the good national cuisine some with Fado evenings or jazz .. You can take a ride on the sidewalk at sea signed by the architect Siza Vieira and have a tea or an aperitif in the famous tea house also designed by the same architect 10 minutes on foot and with feet in the sand to see the sunset. The house is beautiful with garden and solarium lovers, sheltering from the sun. It has toys and educational material for kids. Electric barbecue for some homemade snacks you can eat in the moonlight. Are waiting for you.
Sinta-se em casa! É a única regra...
Local reservado a fumadores no jardim e terraço.
We (family of five with kids of 9, 6 and 2 years old) stayed for 5 days in Alexandre's house. Booking went very smooth, even if it was done on rather short term. Alexandre and his wife were very friendly and welcoming when we arrived, shortly explained the house and the surroundings.
The house is very nice, contains everything you need, in particular for the kids, everything was well prepared. While the top floor had somewhat low ceilings for me with almost 1,90m, it provided a lot of charme with the nicely decorated bed rooms. And the roof terrace was the extra cherry on the cake, from which you could even observe the ships in the close-by harbour (at least the top parts of them ;-)).
The house is located close to some smaller shops, bakeries and restaurants, very close to the harbour and the movable bridge, and it is also only 5-10 minutes walk to the beach. Unfortunately, the beach (resp. the waves) in Leca was a bit too rough for our kids, but a relatively short walk over the bridge brought us to the beach of Matosinhos which was much better suited for us - at least during the time of our stay.
So, we very much enjoyed the stay in Alexandre's house in Leca and would fully recommend it for couples and families.
la description du logement était en dessous de la réalité,bien plus joli que sur les photos. Alexandre et sa femme sont trés simpathyques ,l'un parlant français et l'autre anglais l'échange sur les services alentour a était trés facile,tout était pret a notre arrivée,lits,draps et Alexandre nous a mit a l'aise tout de suite en nous disant que l'on pouvait regarder dans les placards si nous avions besoin de quelque chose et il a été joignable facilement quand nous avons eu besoin.
Our trip to Portugal was wonderful! The house of Alexandre also was great for us! We felt very good in the house. We had much space and we often sat on the nice roof-deck to eat or to talk to each other! In the evenings we loved to go to the beach (5 minutes) to drink some wine and to look at the great sunsets! It was really nice to have a Metro station about 10 minutes away to get directly to Porto! In the house we had everything we needed for cooking and living!
We say thank you very much for staying in your house during our holidays!

Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances à Porto. L'accueil a été très chaleureux avec une confiance mutuelle. La maison est à disposition et possède toutes les qualités requises (confort, connexion WIFI, proche de tout commerce, du centre de Porto, de la plage...).
Merci aux hôtes de la maison de faire en sorte que les vacances se passent au mieux.
C'est une très bonne adresse à garder pour une prochaine fois j'espère.
Alexandre's house is one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. Five of us stayed and there was plenty of room. The house is spacious, clean and really felt like home while we were there and we absolutely loved the sun terrace! Alexandre's wife was also amazing, taking time out of her day to drive us around the local area to show us restaurants, super markets and the beach when we arrived. If we come back to Portugal, we'd love to stay here again.
We had a great time in Portugal and Alexander's house is fantastic. And so is the host.was wonderful. He met us at the airport and showed my boyfriend around. He was the perfect host and his house is absolutely beautiful. It looks nice in pictures, but it's even better in person. We had a great time there. It is very close to the beach, to Porto. It is located on a quiet and narrow street, it has a little yard with a wonderful vine over it and a sun deck. I cannot recommend this house enough. Everything is the way Alexandre describes it and more. We hope to come back again, we had the best of times there and everything was perfect and we felt at home at Alexandre's house.
Alexandre's house is beautiful, clean and spacious. I stayed there with a group of friends and we had the best time! It's close to the metro, yet in a quiet area. Further, the kitchen is well equipped and starting the day well is easy (just have breakfast on one of the two terraces!). Alexandre is a really good communicator and an overall nice person (he even picked us up from the airport!) Would highly recommend.
