About this listing
With its main entrance off an inviting little street in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage area of the Ribeira, this building and its surrounding block of houses have stood overlooking the river Douro for over seven centuries. In 2006 the building underwent a complete renovation of both façade and interior, providing luxurious comfort and functionality while preserving traditional architectural style and appeal. The very granite rocks that remain the shell of this house date back to the mid thirteen hundreds. They have witnesses the rise of medieval Oporto, the birth of the Port trade on the other side of the river, the construction of the 19th century Eiffel bridge and the new 2010 funicular from which passengers look back at the house along the opposite river-bank. This comfortable space in one of the most beautiful and scenic spots in Portugal and equipped with all the moderns amenities required for a luxurious and comfortable stay offers ideal conditions for anyone visiting Oporto or the northern region of Portugal for business or pleasure.
A stylish, south-facing 50m2 apartment in a traditional building filled with light in the prime location overlooking the river Douro and the wine lodges of Vila Nova de Gaia. Ideal for a holiday break to enjoy the architectural and gastronomic delights of Porto.
Danish designed and fully-fited contemporary kitchen gives the option of dinner parties, with access through French doors from both dinning/living room and the suite to small balconies with magnificent views. Furnishing includes dining table, sofa bed, workdesk, a generous double-bed and spacious cupboards. The ensuite bathroom is well appointed in the modern Portuguese style.
just feel at home, with a amazing river view
Great location! Awesome View of the Port!
The pictures don't do it justice!
Extremely helpful staff! Catalina was so helpful giving advice what to see in the city!
Beautiful city! Thanks Catalina! Thanks Go2Oporto!
WOW - what an amazing apartment. Views to die for and everything you could possibly need for a holiday in this delightful town. Well appointed kitchen and a fantastic coffee machine. Quality fittings and fixtures throughout the apartment. So close to great restaurants, bars and shopping. The apartment is on the first floor, only a few steps to reach a lift, which is very handy if you have a lot of luggage. Checking in was very easy and we had not trouble finding the office - our apartment was only a few doors down. Great recommendations on anything we wanted to know and anything that needed attention was dealt with immediately. We'll be recommending to all our friends and would most certainly return to this gorgeous apartment. We loved it!
The listing was accurate, and the neighborhood was very lively with lots to do and close to everything. The apartment, although close to Ribeira activity, was in a quieter area.
The apartment was beautiful. The view was tremendous. For the price, this apartment cannot be beaten. We were greeted, and given an explanation of the surrounding neighborhood, sights to see, and restaurant recommendations. The rental office is right down the street if you have any questions, which is very convenient. We loved the apartment and would definitely stay there again.
Selvom vi først ankom lidt over midnat, blev vi taget rigtig godt imod - endda med et glas portvin.
Fantastisk lejlighed som ligger helt perfekt. Billederne lyver ikke - det er endnu smukkere i virkeligheden.
Her vender vi helt klart tilbage til næste gang, vi skal til Porto.
We had a wonderful time at this Riverside Apartment. The weather in Porto was cool and a little rainy at times. We were so glad we had booked an apartment with the amazing views of the river to enjoy sipping our welcome glass of port!
Having arrived later than arranged and rather stressed out after our GPS failed to work properly, Catarina met us and made us feel right at home and welcome. Suggestions for dinner were spot on for the 2 nights that we stayed. Will definitely be recommending to friends. A very positive 1st airbnb experience!
