To see the apartment location in WWW maps, search for: Rua Padre António Vieira 117, Gulpilhares, Vila Nova de Gaia The apartment is located by the beach in Gulpilhares/Vila Nova de Gaia, a few kilometres away from the city of Porto, Portugal. If you land at Porto airport and rent a car, one can get there mostly on highways (with no toll from airport till the apartment). If you wish to come by public transport from Porto airport, you just need to get a metro’ followed by a train, acquiring just one ticket for both: a way to get there is to go by metro to S. Bento railway station and then by train - passing through Campanhã, the other main railway station in Porto - till Miramar station, located at c.a 700m from the apartment.

However, it is suggested that YOU PHONE THE HOST UPON ARRIVAL IN PORTO AIRPORT OR CITY, SO THAT WE MAY MATCH THE SCHEDULE AND THE BEST WAY TO GET TO THE APARTMENT. Total area: 95 m² with capacity for up to 6 people. The apartment is fully furnished offering 2 bedrooms: one with a double bed, the other with a bed-sofa; wide living room with a sofa-bed (not that large for a couple but there is another foldable bed), cable TV & Internet and a balcony with a sea-view. The kitchen is fully equipped (incl. two washing machines). On the ground floor of its «blue building», there are parking spaces on the street and several shops, such as a Chinese one, another for newspapers/magazines and a bakery, a grocery and nearby restaurants including pizzeria, take-aways, etc.. The apartment has a balcony overlooking the sea, as it is at walking distance from the nearest beach, which is beside Miramar beach (hosting the S.r. da Pedra Capela), considered the 10th most beautiful beach in Europe (see Best Beaches in Europe 2015). Along the seaside there are facilities such as a large walkway over dunes along the beach for jogging, a bicycle track, fields for beach football/volleyball, playgrounds and the Miramar Golf Club. There is also an Aquarium, at the Litoral Station of Aguda, a town nearby. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 22929/ALMore

L’appartement est spacieux et conforme aux photos. La plage est à moins de 5mn à pieds. Ce quartier est moins peuplé que Foz do Douro et convient parfaitement aux familles à la recherche de calme. En bas de la résidence, sont présents quelques petits commerce dont une épicerie (cela dépanne bien). Quant au propriétaire, il est très gentil et parle plusieurs langue ce qui facilite grandement la communication.

Un apartamento situado a unos cinco minutos andando de la playa del Señor de la Piedra, que es la más visitada del entorno, aunque cada pocos pasos hay una. Bien equipado, silencioso, con buenas camas y una estupenda terraza para disfrutar en los días de sol. Debajo del apartamento, menos una pescadería, hay todo tipo de servicios: carnicería, peluquería, tienda de topa, supermercado, etc. La estación del tren para ir a Oporto, a 200 metros del apartamento. Aparcamiento más que suficiente en los alrededores. La gente del lugar, acogedora, y lo más importante de todo D. Jaime, es todo un caballero, en el sentido literal de la palabra.

This is a good and very practical apartment on the sixth floor of a condo close enough to the beach to see the waves splashing on the beautiful beach, but removed enough to escape the wind that comes with it. The apartment is neat and practical with all appliances including a ashing machine and dish washer (which we never used), and of course a wifi. Even though we had a car, it was practical to be just a few minutes walk to a train station which we used a few times to go to Porto. The shops, mini-market, paper-shop, pizzeria, etc on the ground floor of the building meant we more or less had it all in-house. Jaime the host is a very helpful and friendly guy - took so much trouble to please, including helping us search for where to hire bicycles! This is not a Sheraton or Crown Plaza, but anyone who needs a neat and practical good value for money place to stay on a quiet holiday can count on this apartment.

La plage est à 2 minutes à pieds ,il y a une superbe vue sur la mer de l'appartement. Quelques commerces en bas de l'immeuble (qui pour beaucoup parlent français) qui sont bien utiles et très sympathiques . L'appartement est très bien équipé et permet de passer un très bon moment. Merci beaucoup au propriétaire qui est d'une grande gentillesse et qui a fait l'effort de parler français. Nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir !

The apartment is well equipped, clean and comfortable. It is approx 30min drive from Porto airport and is well placed. Very close to shops, pubs and beautifull beaches. The apartment looks the same in reality as on the website. Great assistance by Jaime. He is very helpful with all tourist information but not only :-). Thank you Jaime for your hospitality
