Do you know how the Douro River got its name? Then you must see it from our window at sunset everyday.
Located in the old castle hill of Gaia, the privileged viewing point of the Porto house cascade, this accommodation is a cute small loft in a Unesco world heritage site. And it's rigth in the heart of Porto and Gaia - it really couldn't be better placed!
We offer a converted attic designed for total privacy with an independent entrance from the rest of the building. It has two rooms, one small kitchenette, one bathroom and one dining room. One room is equipped with a full size bed with a closet and a small chill out area. The second room has s small twin size bed, bedside table and reading light. There is a fully equipped bathroom and kitchen with toaster, coffee maker, electric kettle, microwave and fridge. The dining room and both rooms have cable TV available with several international channels (most channels have subtitles as we rarely dub the original programs). If there is anything else you need just let us know and we'll try to provide it.
All the essentials are in walking distance: 3 min. to the metro station, 1 min. to the chair lift, 5 min. to the supermarket, 4 min. to the pharmacy, 15 min. to Porto historical center, 10 min. to typical restaurants and stores, and 10 min. to the world known wine cellars.
Also included are the towels, linen, toiletries, maps and tips for your stay in the city, and… the fabulous view over one of the most beautiful world heritage sites.
Join us for a taste of Porto! Cheers!
nice and cosy flat. located on the south part of the river where all porto caves are placed. very good for a couple but not a very tall one...
gisela gave us really good information about the city and places to visit.
Muy buena ubicacion,muy cerca de las bodegas y 200 mtros del centro. Buena vista desde la pequeña ventana y todo limpio. Lastima la altura del techo, un poco baja la verdad, nosotros medimos 1,80 mtros y nos chocamos la cabeza varias veces, y la cocina muy pequeña y baja hacia casi imposible limpiar. Eso se deberia poner en las referencias. Vale la pena. El metro con una conexion desde el aeropuerto te deja a escasos 25 metros.
I could not have asked for a better host than Gisela. She went above and beyond to help us, make us feel welcome and give us information. She was friendly, caring and interesting. The apartment has a lot of character, artistic flair, a fairy tale quality.. and has stunning views over the river and old city. All I can say is thank you! Highly recommended.
Très jolie petit appartement, bien situé, parfait pour deux. Accueil très chaleureux de la part de Gisella. Elle est très disponible et de bon conseil. On espère la recroiser une prochaine fois.
Attention, cet appartement n'est pas fait pour les grands!

It is a beautiful view over Porto, every morning brings a pleasant walk across the Pont Dom Luis I-bridge.
As an extra, Gisela is a nice and helpful host!
It was a pleasure to be Giselas guest. She picked us up at night from the station and gave us a little "overview" about Porto and the portuguese lifestyle :) The apartment is just like you can see on the pictures - clean, lovely and neat. Gisela is a cute and lively person! Thanks again :)
Gisela is a wonderful host, helpful and funny, and her house is lovely and perfectly located ❤️
Gisela es maravillosa y la casa está en una zona maravillosa para disfrutar de Oporto y sus vistas. Además, la casa tiene muchísimo encanto ❤️
