  • Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Paula & Felipe. Appartement très confortable avec vue sur la mer : Praia de Canide. Nous avons profité des vélos mis à disposition pour des balades sur la piste longeant la mer sur une quinzaine de kilomètres entre Porto et Espinho. Porto n'est qu'à 20-30 minutes en bus (ligne 15)...

  • L'appartement est bien situé juste en face de la plage et ça je trouve que c'est un luxe pas besoin de prendre la voiture pour y aller surtout quand on est dans un pays que l'on ne connait pas. L'appartement est suffisament grand pour 3/4 personnes et bien entretenu c'est propre là dessus rien à dire. Petit bémol la douche de la salle de bain de la chambre est petite. Je recommande vivement cet appartement pour le prix aussi qui est raisonnable.

  • We had a fantastic stay at Paula's apparment. The appartment is fully equiped (you can find everything you need) and perfectly located, approx. 300m, in front of the beach. A supermarket and Porto City are easily accessibly by using the bikes or public transport. Paula's warm welcome and local recommendations made this a very relaxing and memorable holiday.

  • Love Portugal and it's people and feel always as being in my "second home".
    An amazing travel, with sea in front, meetings with portuguese friends. Rivercross (douro) over the weekend was so nice !
    Like the Vinho and the delicate food (fish) very much.
    Porto itself is a wonderful city.

  • We have just come back from the holidays in Portugal and are thrilled with the experience we had at Paula's apartment. Together with her husband Felipe, they were excellent hosts. We were very well looked after; picked up from the train station and given lots of information and advice. Not only did they look after us very well, but also became our friends and we enjoyed grilled sardines on an evening out, as well as a cooking seession (delicious monkfish with rice, Portuguese style) together.
    The apartment is very spacious, well equipped and cosy. The seaview is great and the fact that there is 15 km of pristine beaches right in front of you to enjoy makes it a lovely, relaxing holiday. We had a bike for each of us to enjoy and the ride to Porto along the shore and then the Duoro bank was one of the highlights of our stay.
    We highly recommend staying at Paula's apartment.

  • The apartment is just as described, in fact, it is even nicer! It is nicely decorated, bright and very comfortable. Even the fresh flowers you see on the pictures, were there on my arrival. How great is that!
    There is a balcony with an amazing view of the sea, where you can enjoy the sun from the early afternoon till the late evening;. The beach is in front of the apartment, very nice, and not crowded at all. And the supermarket is only a 15 min. walk awy.
    For those who like to be active, there is a walking, jogging and cycling path along the beach. Or you can hop on a bus to Porto or to center of Vila Nova de Gaia.

    Paula was very helpful in getting me oriented and making sure I had what I needed during my stay. She made me feel extremely welcome!

    So if you are looking for a quiet place by the beach, not spoilt by tourism, this is the place to be!

Sou gentil, afável e brincalhona. Gosto de estar em contacto com a natureza. Dificilmente viveria longe do mar...costumo fazer desporto na companhia de amigos e/ou filhos, no final do dia, tais como: correr, nadar, andar de bicicleta e fazer caminhadas. Gosto de ler e ouvir música de estilos variados. Adoro a comida mediterranica, sobretudo a portuguesa, e saborea-la na companhia dos amigos. O meu lema de vida é vive-la intensamente, ser e fazer os outros felizes.
