Location

Porto, Portugal

Porto it's one inspiring city for the sciences and arts .

Oporto it's famous for its Porto wine . Visit one of Oporto's most traditional establishments, for a tour and tasting.
Oporto is so picturesque with the old wine boats plying the river in front of you, and traditional port lodges behind, the medieval old-town clinging to the opposite bank and the skyline punctured by the Cathedral and numerous churches .

10 minutes the faboulous bookshop Livraria Lello , the totally unique spectacle of an amazing interior architecture . the Harry Potter’s library in Hogwarts. In fact, J.K Rowling lived in Porto teaching English in the early 1990s .

The UNESCO protected old-town, a veritable tangle of 14th century lanes tumbles to the river and a beautifully restored waterfront. Tiny antiquated shops are everywhere, and, straddling the river itself, are six stunningly intricate bridges, one of which was designed by Gustav Eiffel.

Take the Eiffel designed bridge (D. Luis bridge) across the Douro to Gaia (5 minutes walk) and visit the Port Houses of Ferreira, Sandemans, Croft and Barros amongst others where you can take a guided trip and sample the delights of Portugal's oldest export.
Take a day trip by car or cruize up the river inland and see a country that hasn't changed that much for hundreds of years - trips leave 8AM and return in the evening with lunch provided.

Green environment:
Porto and North Portugal has so much to offer your family for short breaks and day trips. There are many activities available to keep you and your family busy. Visit the Serralves Museum art gallery, the Clerigos Tower, the Bookstore Lello (one of the best in world for its beauty), observe the contemporary architecture in the Casa da Musica, walk between caves and taste a Vinho do Porto . Take trip inland up Douro River and see a country that hasn't changed that much for hundreds of years. (The river cruises do not run from 31 October until March. However, trips between the bridges are available all year round).
The boats leave at 8:00 am and return in the evening with lunch provided.

Be one with nature terraces in the green vineyards during the Spring and the Summer. See the wine harvest from the beginning of September until the middle of October.

Fun in family:
Visit SEA LIFE.
Swim or surf in the ocean or visit our park with 80 hectares. Here you can run, jog, play soccer, cycle or have a picnic where the countryside meets the sea.
You can jog for 12 km from our flat to Parque da Cidade, following the river and the sea, each step offering a changing landscape at one with nature – an impressionist painters dream.
Interesting cities near Oporto: :
Braga , Guimarães e Coimbra.
Braga with its Sanctuary of Bom Jesus, the City of new technologies. Guimarães known as the place where the country was born – 'The Cradle City'.
Coimbra, the city of students with its famous university and the Bookstore Joanina . Coimbra are close the Roman Empire ruins at Conimbriga.

The trains and bus are fantastic and are not expensive
