Host Review Score

Rosa Soares
This property has the best rating for location and cleanliness given by guests. The property can be seen in youtube in RED HOUSE BY THE RIVER. It is located in a magnificent place in front of the river Douro, where you can contemplate the lights of D. Luiz I Bridge and Vila Nova de Gaia to reflect on the Douro River. The view is stunning especially at night, when everything is lit up, it is a very peaceful place to stroll, run, fish. The apartments located on the 1st and 2nd floor on the left can enjoy the back part of the house which has a yard with a century-old spring of natural water that produces a very appreciable and relaxing sound. Maximum stay of 4 nights for 2 bedroom apartment, 1 bedroom apartment and studio apartment.
Hello, my name is Rosa Soares born and raised in the property that now I invite you to visit. I had great pleasure in decorating the apartments, so I took advantage of pieces in them to maintain the moth and the character but to make them look beautiful, cozy with charm and very functional. I love to communicate and especially to receive and share interests. I will be glad to receive you.
The place where the property is located has as main tourist attractions about 100 meters the funicular to visit the Fernandinas walls. At the same distance of 100 meters, you can see the D. Luiz I bridge which is the most charming in the city of Porto. Start the descent with one foot in Ribeira, where you can find the widest variety of restaurants and start a beautiful boat trip. Across the river, in Vila Nova de Gaia you will find the famous Port wine cellars, such as Sandeman, Ofley and Porto Calem. About 1,100 meters away you will find the São Bento railway station, the Clérigos tower, the Porto coliseum, the Lello bookstore and the Bolhão market.
