Welcome to my bright, open planned top floor apartment with a fantastic view of Portos old city, the Douro river, the famous bridge and the Port wine houses.

My apartment is perfect for two couples or a family (2 double beds) who sometimes wishes to relax and cook dinner at home. When your children go to sleep you can still be part of the nightlife, enjoying the view from the balcony while sipping a glass of wine.
Plenty of free parking on the street but also ask me if my garage is available!

Where you’ll be

Vila Nova de Gaia, Porto, Portugal

In 10 min walking you'll be down at the river where you'll find many restaurants, bars and Port wine houses to choose from. The development on this side has been amazing the last years. I really like the old Mercado nearby where you now can sample different Portuguese foods and drinks. Along the river you'll also tourist offices where you can book river cruises, bus tours, rent a bicycle etc.

In the nearby neighborhood you have two smaller grocery stores, three cafés/bakeries, two local restaurants (one very famous for its 'Francesinha') as well the excellent restaurant at Graham's Port wine house. You also have one butcher, a very local bar and an ATM, all within 1-5 min walking. A 20 min walk (or 3 min drive) takes you to a big shopping center (Arrabida) where you have a big supermarket called 'Jumbo'.

You could walk to the beaches but if you rent a bicycle you will be awarded. It's a beautiful bicycle trip on either side of the river and along the Atlantic there are great bicycle lanes (to Spain in the north and to Spain in the south...).

I grew up on the island of Gotland in Sweden but now live in beautiful Porto. I have a background in HR but have worked as a tour leader in southern Africa the last couple of years. I'm a traveller and travelling, getting to know the world and different cultures is my life and who I am. As a host, I think my own travels have taught me what most guests need or want while abroad for work or on a holiday.

In the apartment you will find a folder with a lot of useful information about Porto, the apartment, the neighborhood as well as ICE.

You may book directly but please write me a short message telling me a little about yourself and the people you're traveling with. I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have!
