Maria's place is on a big beautiful beach outside of the Porto city center. The beach is very quiet because it's outside the city, but it's beautiful. If you want a beach to yourself and an apartment with a great view, this is the place to be. The apartment is extremely well accommodated and clean. Easy access by train!

Lovely sitting room with great window and balcony views across the sea. We took lots of lovely walks along the promenade, did our shopping locally, enjoyed cafe Chez, had a great time in Porto which is so close and could have done so much more but not enough time.

Just returned from 9 nights at Maria's place in Aguda and can highly recommend it. The house was just as described, in fact a little bigger than I expected. My three year old was too scared to go up the narrow spiral staircase to the top floor but it would be fine for older children. The house is only five minutes (or less) walking distance from Aguda train station and there are regular, reliable trains to Porto to the north and aveiro and espinho to the south, plus many other destinations. Aguda itself has several bars, cafes, restaurants, a bakery and two local supermarkets in the village. These are all only 1 minutes walk away but it is still quiet when sitting on the balcony in the evenings. There is also a larger supermarket within walking distance. On the beach most people stay within the sheltered cove area, where the waves are not so big. There are rock pools at low tide. Maria was away but her friend Celia welcomed us on arrival and was available to help with anything we needed. A problem with the hot water was sorted immediately. Thank you so much Celia and Maria - we had a lovely holiday! Xxx

Maria was the perfect host and the house is charming. Maria even provided an additional mattress to make my husband more comfortable (he is recovering from a back injury)

Our visit to Aguda was wonderful. Maria's home is comfortable and has a beautiful view of the sea from the balcony. It's in the perfect location; quiet but right in the middle of this tiny village. Around the corner to fresh food grocers, bakery, fish markets, restaurants and bars. The area is very peaceful and quiet - but a short train ride to Porto for more action. The train station is a quick walk. We loved it. Maria was easy to contact, very receptive and helpful with directions and referrals to the best restaurants.
