“A restful, happy and joy filled stay in Porto”

Where do I start?

We stayed in a wonderful newly built flat in Rua do Bonjardim, Porto, quite a steep climb up from the town, however we were ideally placed for the best shops, restaurants and sights just a short walk away.

Especially the Rua de Santa Catarina and roads arounds provided all the top shops, restaurants and friendly cafes one shopaholic should need..

We arrived late on the Sunday evening, after delays at the airport, but this didn't deter our hosts from waiting to welcome us to their lovely little garden flat.

They spent time showing us the whole flat and garden area, then presented us with a bottle of local wine and many hints of places to visit and sights to see all over Porto.

The flat was a little gem on the hill, it was smart, incredibly clean and tidy. We were provided with a lovely compact and attractive flat, with easy access to the garden terraces, where we spent may happy hours, sun bathing, eating to drinking a nice sundowner drink in peace and quite.

The apartment provided lovely appointed bedroom area with adjoining bathroom, providing powerful hot showers. Very clean! The flat's decor was well appointed with a comfortable feel, the lounge area was small and airy, with a television, ample sockets and wifi added to the experience.

The kitchen had all the necessary equipment, and implements, and we cooked many lovely fresh food meals, and ate them under the sun and the stars with a lovely bottle wine or Port. Yum!

As a Coeliac it was amazingly easy to find good wholesome food and I was never made to feel awkward about asking, and always felt welcome.

Stairs seem to be popular in Porto and along with the hills we certainly built up our calf and leg muscles and what stamina we had by the end of our holiday.

We loved walking and when we had had enough, there was always a new restaurant, cafe or a metro station close by, with clean and safe travel at any time of the day or night.

Trindade Metro station was a god send and provided a hub to all the main parts of Porto. Our hosts we so welcoming and provided us with personal tours and made us feel like part of the family. We had great days out and had many wonderful and memorable experiences with them. They couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was the best possible, encouraging us try new foods and experience the real Portugal.

Porto is definitely the place to start in Portugal and staying at this apartment made the package complete.

So much to enjoy, still more to do. Thank you to Trip Advisor and our hosts for providing this apartment and a wonderful friendly, relaxing and restful Portugal experience.

This was our first time using Trip Advisor and our first time to Portugal.
We found Trip Advisor full of useful information and was able to trust it.

We contacted our hosts several times prior to arriving each time they were prompt courteous and extremely caring.

We arrived into Portugal later than originally planned we were given advice to travel by the Metro- which was clean efficient and very cheap. When we arrived at Trinidade Metro , we apologised to our host for running late- they had waited for over an hour, yet they were warm and welcoming. They gave us a complete guide around the property and gardens and explained where the major tourist attractions were, also gave us a botle of local wine to welcome us. The property was spotless with 2 sets of bed linen and towels as we were staying two weeks. The appartment had a double bed in the eave of one end of the appartment. a good size powerful hot shower sink and toilet -SPOTLESSLY CLEAN. A narrow lounge with sofa /bed table amd chairs a colour tv . A kitchen with hob microwave fridge sink all again SPOTLESSLY CLEAN. Outside there was a wash room and a garden with two tiers to sit outside.
The appartment is on a hill, however the Metro is less than 8 minutes away so getting around is very easy. The hosts also had left details of Tours which they operate themselves. We went on two different trips one each week, Both times we were met at the appartment each time on time, we were taken by the family and were made to feel very welcome and saw things most organised trips do not touch. I t was refreshing to have hosts who were passionate about Portugal and good broad knowledge on history and districts. Thoroughly recommend them and present far greater value than organised trips . Even after we had checked out they still cared , we handed our keys back at midday were not due to fly out till 8pm. I suffer sometimes with Stomach issues and did so was stuck in Porto, they organised to collect me and my partner and take us to airport so that I didnt have to worry - from beginning to end the Care warmth of both hosts and Porto itself is what we take away -THANK YOU -ps there is an error which we expected there is only one bathroom -apart from that the property is clean accurately advertised
