If you want to know Porto, but you'd like to get away from the fuss of the city, this is the place for you! It is close to the city center but has the charm and tranquility of the countryside. A romantic cottage where you can relax and be enchanted!

The space
My cottage is a unique place in this city. It's near the center and all the touristic spots, but it maintains the necessary distance to create a peaceful and quiet atmosphere, that you would find in the countryside. When you come through our doors, it seems as you've been transported to a different place: everything is green around you, you can hear the birds singing, the air is fresh and at night you can see a sky full of stars.
All of this just a few minutes away from a metro station with tonnes of connections (VISO).
The cottage is designed for 4 people (max), with 2 double beds. It's ideal for couples, families or groups of friends who want to share a genuine travel experience.

Guest access
The cottage is like a "studio appartment", with every area in the same room, except for the bathroom, and is equipped with:
- 1 king-size bed and 1 double-bed;
- a small kitchen, with the basic appliances (stove top, fridge, microwave, toaster, water boiler and coffee maker) and all the utensils you'll need;
- 1 bathroom, fully equipped (1 "waterfall" shower, 1 toilet, 1 sink);
- a living room with a sofa and a small library;
- a dining table that can work as a working desk;
- a swing for 2 people to relax, in the porch outside;
- various children's swings, in the trees;
- many chairs to relax in the sun;
- 1 hammock, available during the summer months;
- and a herb garden and fruit trees, in the backyard, where you can pick up some oranges if you want for your desert!

The cottage is located in the middle of my parents' property but has total independence from the main house. This allows everyone to maintain their privacy.
The guests won't have access to the main house, but are invited to enjoy the green areas that surround it.

Other things to note
If you need LAUNDRY taken care of or a RIDE TO/FROM THE AIRPORT, please let me know by text. We have options available for you!

Our neighborhood is not touristic. We live in a residential area, served with all the shops you may need (ex: supermarket, pharmacy, grocery store, restaurant). Very close by we have a metro station (Via Rápida - Viso) and various bus stations, that can take you downtown in minutes!

I'm a world traveler, food geek, infinitely curious about people, cultures and ways of being. Since I was young, I dreamed about crossing the world, living abroad, learning all the different languages and expressions. AirBnb has a been the perfect platform for me, for a more interactive and genuine way of traveling and knowing the world.
