The apartament is perfect for large groups or families, there are all amenities, plus the owner provided fruits and breakfast essentials, is very attentive and kind. Space and number of bathrooms was important for us, a family of eight travelling also with children, so we were all glad of the accommodation.
Porto is a beautiful town, not so full of tourists as Lisbon now, but with a wonderful vibrant vibe, new artists and restaurants make it an amazing town.
From the apartment to downtown it is a 20 minute-walk, but taxis are cheap, so it is conveniently located, and very safe.
The only downside, and a small one, is there are no elevators- the stairs are not steep, so we only felt it taking the luggage up and down. A small price to pay all things considered. Thanks Fernando and family for all.
We are a group of 9 persons with ages between 30 and 40. We had a great experience in Fernando's apartment. Fernando was very kind to receive us in his restaurant and to present us the big apartment. The apartment is very spacious and clean with everything that is necessary to spend there some great days. Also it is a well decorated apartment and we felt like home! We just need 10 minutes walking to get to the city center. Nearby we had supermakets, restaurants and the metro station "Marquês". We had some meals in Fernando's restaurant ("Solar da Alegria") with 10% discount. I advise to everyone.
