Perks for the Parents

This simple family-focused apartment in the arts district of Porto includes toys for children and has shops, restaurants and art galleries a short stroll away. The location is great for a family trip - it’s in a quiet residential area with good accessibility right in the city’s historical center. Relaxing at home is a joy when you’ve taken in the sights and the Douro River: the house has a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and TV, and is south facing and sunny.

Why Kids Love it

Ideal for a small family, this apartment is a short walk from gardens, playgrounds and Porto’s center and includes a kids bedroom with toys and books and games (including Legos and Playmobil). There is a TV with 120 channels, a DVD player and a PS4. The banks of the Douro River are around 15 minutes’ walk away, and Livraria Lello, the sumptuous bookshop that reportedly inspired the library in Hogwarts, is under 10 minutes’ walk away.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. The flat is safe and secure on the 3th floor, with elevator access. It has a parking space and a garage for 2 cars. Car rental may not be necessary in this location however; much of the city is walkable and there is reliable public transport.

About the Location

The residence is in the center of ‘Bairro das Artes’ in Miguel Bombarda, central Porto. Porto’s Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport is a 25-minute drive away. Nearby attractions include the National Museum of Soares dos Reis (Carrancas Palace), a museum of fine arts, decorative arts and archeology, along with the Garden of Cordoaria, Gardens of the Crystal Palace and Clérigos Tower.

Accommodation Details

This south-facing 1 floor apartment has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, plus a large open living and dining area and fully equipped kitchen. The bedroom include 1 with a kingsize bed and shower bathroom, 1 with a double/fullsize bed and 1 with a twin bed. These last 2 bedroom share a bathroom with bathtub. There is no outdoor space.

Style Notes

Modern family. This sunny Porto apartment is designed for a family and includes a cozy lounge area, plenty of greenery and antique and contemporary furnishings. Walls are largely neutral with one burst of floral wallpaper; floors are polished wood. We love the central location, comfortable main living space and opportunity to live like a local in the city.

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.
