The house was amazing, immaculately clean and well planned, being on three levels. Sophia who looks after the property, met us in the early hours of the morning when we arrived. She had provided milk, bread and butter which was much appreciated as well as arranging for her son, a taxi driver, to collect us from the airport. In addition,...

A charming house situated halfway up the steep Northern bank of the Douro, 76 Rua Tomas Gonzaga is perfectly positioned for reaching the bustling bars and restaurants of the squares above it and the banks of the river below. The view from the terrace is worth a few hours of your time. Everything is comfortable, well arranged and neatly kitted...

This apartment is so pleasant to be in, from its well placed dining table that overlooks the river to the delightful courtyard that lets one enjoy the setting sun on the river. Although tricky for the taxi drive to find, the location of the apartment is in a perfect proximity to many of the old city sites and close enough...

About the neighbourhood
Our house is within easy walking distance of the main railway station Sao Bento from which it is possible to take a train to explore Portugal. A particulatrly lovely trip is up the river Duoro and you can see the vineyards for the Port wine (see above).<BR>It is a two hour train journey to Lisbon. There are national parks and unspoilt countryside all around - for these a car is probably necessary but car hire is cheap.
Car not needed
How to get there
Easy Jet, Ryanair, TAP all fly direct to Porto. It is a 2 hour flight and there is no time difference between the UK and Portugal.<BR>A taxi from the airport will get you to the house in 20 minutes. The metro which goes to Sao Bento station (10 minute walk to the house) will take maximum and hour.

Nearest Beach: 2.0 km.
