Imagine a cozy and bright home in Porto's World Heritage historic and vibrant city center… this apartment (sleeps 4) has a fantastic natural light and a calm, cozy atmosphere. Here you will find all the commodities for a perfect stay, either if you came for a short visit or for a longer period with the family.

The space

The first impression when opening the front door is the natural light that illuminates the entire house: two windows show you the city roofs and the bell tower of the historic Trindade church, reminding that you are right at the UNESCO world heritage city center. On the other side, a window and a balcony give you a glimpse of the green backyard gardens. And a roof window allows you to gaze at the stars.
The house is a 60 m2 duplex that occupies the 3rd floor of a fully renovated early 20th century building.
It hosts comfortably 4: in one independent room (with a double bed) and one mezzanine (with twin beds). It has one bathroom and a well equipped kitchen/living room with a nice balcony where you can enjoy a glass of Porto wine. We provide you towels, bed linen and all the gear needed to prepare meals (e.g., microwave, toaster, oven and stove top, pots and pans, cutlery and crockery).
The home decor leverages on the typical atmosphere of the historical center of Porto (granite stone, high ceilings with pine wood), but adds modern and cozy elements (plants and green, books, home-made crafts and charming timeless objects).
Free high-speed internet (in the entire house), cable television, air conditioning (hot and cold), and a washing machine are also at your disposal. Here you will find all the comfort needed for either a short weekend or a longer business visit, alone or with the family.
Please notice that the staircase up to the mezzanine and its height is likely to make you less comfortable if you are travelling with small children (especially those with a climbing spirit). Aside from that, there is space for a baby crib in the main room and children are very welcome.

Alex and Nuno's place was absolutely perfect for our week long stay in Porto! The airport pick up and check in was very smooth and the place was very clean and homely. The apartment is also conveniently located, nearby many restaurants and bars as well as the river. Definitely try some of their recommendations as all the food we had was great!

We had a wonderful stay in Porto and this apartment is a great base. The Porto Concierge welcome was great and we appreciated the small welcome gift. It was perfectly central for us and the furnishings were lovely, only thing to be aware of is that there are a lot of stairs both getting to and inside the apartment. Not a problem for us but could be a deal breaker for others

Dear Megan, We are happy that you enjoyed our apartment as a base to discover Porto city center. It is a pitty that the renovated historical buildings downtown don't have space for an elevator. Guess it's part of the charm ;)

Great place in a great neighborhood. We rented Alexandra's and Nuno's place after hiking the Camino de Santiago in Spain. Perfect end to the trip. Good hosts and good communication.

We had a great long weekend in Alexandra & Nuno’s apartment. The location was perfect as it's literally a couple of minutes walk from Trindade station when arriving by train from the airport. There are a numbers of cool bears/restaurants right on the doorstep down Rua da Picaria where we had some great food and cocktails, and all the sights we wanted to see were within walking distance. They were also very accommodating when we arrived slightly later than planned due to a delayed flight. The apartment itself is compact but very well designed and has a clean and bright feel to it. Overall a great place to stay !!!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Alexandra and Nuno's. The location was great. Close to everything without being too close to the hustle and bustle (downtown can be loud late at night). Apartment was sparkling clean and recently renovated. The apartment is up 4 flights of stairs so keep that in mind if physical fitness isn't your thing ;) Apartment is perfect for 2 people. Any more than that and the shared space would be very tight (balcony seats 2, couch seats 2). Overall a great time and we would recommend this apartment to friends!

Response from Alexandra & Nuno:
Dear Molly, we are very glad you enjoyed so much your stay in Porto and our apartment. Its true that the apartment is not huge, but feedback we had so far from "4-guests" about the 2 bedrooms and shared space is very positive.

We are the ones behind this apartment: 2 young scientists raising 2 beautiful children that love to be in contact with nature. We lived in many different places, but we now settled in Porto (and felt in love with Porto and the Douro Valley), though we still travel a lot, for work and for fun. When abroad, the thing we miss the most is the coziness of home at the end of a great day. Probably this happens to you too. Thinking on that, we created your "home in Porto" with the things we love the most: plants and green, books, home-made crafts and charming timeless objects. We hope you enjoy it as much as us!
