This ultra compact city residence sleeps 2 adults and 1-2 kids and is walking distance from the Douro River in the heart of Porto’s UNESCO heritage district. It’s all about the location: this residence does not have much in the way of space to play, but it is just steps away from city parks and museums, plus the lively riverside area. With its white-shuttered windows and stone walls smoothed over the ages, it might be small but it certainly has character, and is in a building that’s over 200 years old. We’d recommend boat trips on the river, port tasting in cellars and playtime in the botanical gardens as just a few ways to spend your time here.

What we love

  • It’s a great location, walking distance from the river and Porto’s key cultural attractions
  • The lounge has a TV and DVD player, plus small dining area for 3 and coffee and port for guests
  • The bedroom is screened from the lounge area by a bookcase
  • There’s also a compact modern shower room
  • And the kitchen is big enough to create a family meal in, with microwave, stove and fridge
  • It works well as a city crash pad for a weekend in Porto with 1-2 kids
  • Travel crib, baby high chair and books and games provided

El apartamento es tal y como se en las fotos, incluso mejor! Hugo fue muy atento y amable en todo momento, resolviendo nuestras dudas y recomendándonos muy buenos restaurantes. Nuestra bebé quedó encantada con los juguetes de la casa :) Si volvemos a Oporto, repetiremos seguro. Gracias Hugo por todo! Ángela y Javier.

Porto, Portugal

Boating, garden mazes and custard tarts

Set on the beautiful Douro River in the north of Portugal, Porto is known for being the birthplace of port. There’s plenty to do in this romantic, family-sized city with those under the legal drinking age however: take a boat trip along the river; splash about at the Water Pavilion; hide and seek in the maze at the Botanical Garden or just amble the cobbled streets, picking up custard tarts and cured meats for a picnic in the park. Our local hosts can help you find the best playgrounds as well as the top wine caves and cellars.
