Apartment for up to 6 guests, suitable for a group of friends or family. It is located right in the heart of Porto, in the downtown (Baixa) area, where you can walk easily everywhere. The surrounding environment is incredible, with a panoramic and green view over the river. All the windows have a lovely view to the Dom Luis I Bridge (designed by the engineer and disciple of Gustave Eiffel) Perfect for everyone who wants to visit not only the historical center and the river side, but also the beach side. There are a lot of popular beaches, close to where the Douro River meats the Atlantic Ocean. Right next to all the main hotspots in the city, such as:  . Wine sellers • Aliados • Clérigos Tower • Lello Bookshop • Majestic Caffé • Coliseum of Porto Among many others, like restaurantes and bars! It is very close to the Porto Cathedral, one of the most emblematic monuments of the city. The apartment is equipped with everything you might need for a great stay in Porto!

Located in the historic old town

Porto's old town is full of crumbling pastel-colored houses. It's peaceful and relatively untouched – despite being designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it's still off most tourists' radars.
