Hi from Dublin,

Two senior citizens arriving in Porto airport 23/08/13 for 1 week.We would love to spend our holiday in a nice town or village in a rural area not a lot of tourists.Typical Potugese restaurants bars etc.We will not be hireing a car and will be depending on public transport.

Any advice would be appreciated.

You won't have much choice as transfer time from the airport to the railway station in Porto is already at least half an hour. There are a few busses leaving from the airport. For instance the bus to Guimarães takes 50 minutes. Guimarães is a Unesco World Heritage and lovely. Although it is a city, it feels very intimate. It has a beautiful historic old center.

You could locate yourself just outside Guimarães, for instance hotel Casa de Sezim which is surrounded by nature and have a rural experience.
