About this listing

Apartamento num prédio centenário, numa rua muito sossegada e ao mesmo tempo central do antigo bairro judeu. Acomoda facilmente 6 pessoas. A cozinha está totalmente equipada e a varanda das traseiras é muito acolhedora!

The space

O apartamento fica no 3ºandar de um prédio centenário, sem elevador, que ao longo dos anos sofreu melhorias sucessivas sem nunca perder a traça original.
Dos quartos da frente vês os telhados do centro histórico e a cidade de Vila Nova de Gaia d outro lado do rio. O sol entra em abundancia pelas janelas e enche de luz um apartamento muito espaçoso, com cerca de 100m2 e 3 quartos.
O apartamento encontra-se totalmente equipado para receber 6 pessoas (com possibilidade de 7), com fogão, máquina de lavar roupa, micro-ondas, máquina de café e chaleira.
O prédio situa-se numa rua residencial do antigo bairro judeu do Olival, numa zona muito típica da cidade do Porto. Aqui irá cruzar-se com a população mais pitoresca da cidade, gente acolhedora e alegre, que enche as ruas com o seu discurso desbocado e contagia com a sua sincera generosidade.
Perca-se pelas ruelas e escadarias da zona, almoce no restaurante “Caraças” (barato e típico), e encontre os renovados cafés e lojas da cidade. Se gosta de exercício, desça até ao rio, alugue uma bicicleta e pedale até ao mar, onde entrará praias belíssimas e esplanadas para todos os gostos.
A zona é segura, poderá estacionar à porta e encontra as paragens de autocarro a 5min, a linha de metro a 10min e animada vida noturna mesmo ao lado, onde a música transborda dos edifícios e as ruas se enchem de gente.
Mas o Porto é muito mais que o centro histórico, aqui encontras museus modernos, casas de espetáculo, praias limpas e cuidadas e surf todo o ano. Num estudo do Forum Mundial de Economia estamos entre aqueles que melhor recebem os turistas, eu confirmo! Venha visitar-nos e sinta-se em casa.

Interaction with guests

I will be waiting for you at the apartment to explain how everything works and to recommend the best places in the neighbourhood

Other things to note

One of the things that I most like in my apartment is to be very central and at the same time located in a very quiet and residential street

Ligia's flat is perfectly located and equipped with everything you would need. The décor is lovely and far more spacious than your average airbnb. Above all, both Ligia and her sister Luisa added to the enjoyment of our stay by providing lots of information and even helping us recover a passport that had been left in Lisbon! They were constantly in touch to ensure we had everything we needed and over the period of our stay found they are very popular in the neighbourhood, which in itself speaks very highly of them. We strongly recommend this flat in Porto.

I stayed in Ligia's and Luisa's flat with a friend as well my 20 month daughter for 4 days. With the 3 bedrooms, that was plenty of space. The apartment is spacious, bright and extremely well located. It is on the 3rd floor which was a bit of a challenge with luggage and a toddler, but Ligia and Luisa were very kind to let us store the buggy on the ground floor every night. They also helped us carry the luggage up... They are both very nice and friendly and were very easy to reach during our stay. In addition to all, they even installed a babycot for my daughter. The apartment was clean. Overall we were very happy with our stay.

We (5 ladies) had a wonderful stay at Ligia's apartment. The apartment is located in a quiet street, but restaurants, bar, shops and the river are very nearby. Actually... everything a tourist would want is within walking distance. I would say it is the perfect location! The apartment itself is clean and comfortable and has all the necessary facilities. I would suggest to place an extra couch or sofas (for groups larger than 3 people) though, but that's just a minor suggestion. Porto has lots to offer, so why stay in right?! Ligia is very hospitable and the communication with her was very adequate. She also arranged two taxi's for us from and to the airport and the drivers we're two very kind gentlemen as well. Overall, we had a very pleasant experience with Porto, Ligia and the apartment, so we would definitely recommend to stay at her place when visiting Porto.

We spent 3 days in the wonderful city of Porto. Ligia is an outstanding sympathic person and her flat was very wide and very clean, but best of all, very central. The inner city of Porto, Ribeira at Rio Douro and even the famous Port Wine Cellars via the bridge Ponte Luis are within walking distance. My special tip: Go for breakfast to the bar O LANCHINHO DA VITORIA left to the church at the end oft he street, only a few hundred meters away. It’s cheap and the owner is very kind. Drink a galao (coffee with milk) and eat a sandwich or a sweety, the perfect start to the day.

We had a great time in Porto. We were lucky staying at Ligia's very nice and comfortable house. Ligia met us at her place , provided the map with information about paces to eat. Everything is very clean and neat at the house and you immediately feel like home. We did not have enough Portugese and she organized a taxi for our departure. She came herself to say goodbye and make sure the 2 taxis were arrived in time. I would definitely recommend to stay at her house. Thanks s lot Ligia. We had an excellent time in the city.

My name is Lígia Santos, I am married with three children and I am a geologist.
I have always loved sport very much: I play volleyball, I do a lot of jogging and biking and have recently taken up rowing in the River Douro, so exciting!!
I am frequently a tourist in my home town. Oporto is a small town, where life is enjoyable and the River Douro meets the sea.
I really enjoy being able to share my passion for my town with my guests. By this days I'm renting 3 apartments in a centenary building of the historic center. My guests always left the apartment tidy and clean and i am grateful :)
