A spacious double bedroom.

  • We had a wonderful weekend in porto. Joao's appartment is very well located to explore the city. Our room was nice and tidy and there was breakfast each morning. Joao was a good host and told us a lot about where to go and what to do.

  • We had a real great time in "A Casa Formosa" and would go there again anytime. The apartment is extremely cosy, loving and stylish arrangend. It's actually as nice as you can see it on the pictures! Moreover everything was clean, and we got fresh bread or rolls every day.

    João is the best host you can imagine: communicative and extremly caring - but not obtrusive. We got some good tips for restaurants, cafès and activities in Porto. And it was always a pleasure to have some words with him - during the breakfast or other occasions. Nicest accomodation we ever had with Air BnB!
