Most beautiful appartment in Porto! In the middle of the town with everything you need. Cristina, you should mention that there is a hairdryer :-).
We spent three days with our baby a year and a half in this apartment.
We arrived about an hour and a half later than expected due to a flight delay and Cristina & John very kindly waited for us to give us the keys accompanied by a glass of port wine "thank you very much !!". They provided maps and a dossier with areas of interest (restaurants, wineries, supermarkets ...) and all this is appreciated when you arrive in a new city.
Very nice and clean apartment with everything you need, though perhaps a television to distract the small at times would have been nice.
Regarding location, just say it's excellent! (Close to everything) and only downside say that just below a bar / restaurant that puts music speaker on the street, which made our first night we could not sleep until 00:00 because of a tour group extremely elated, but our baby and found out !!!!. The other days the music was bearable.
Pasamos tres días con nuestro bebe de un año y medio en este apartamento.
Llegamos cerca de una hora y media más tarde de lo previsto por culpa de un retraso en el vuelo y Cristina & John nos esperaron muy amablemente para darnos las llaves acompañado de una copita de vino de oporto " muchas gracias!!". Nos facilitaron mapas y un dossier con zonas de interés ( restaurantes ,bodegas, supermercados...) y todo esto se agradece cuando llegas a una ciudad nueva.
El apartamento muy bonito y limpio con todo lo necesario, aunque quizás una televisión para distraer al pequeño en algunos momentos hubiera estado bien.
Respecto a la ubicación, sólo decir que es excelente! ( cerca de TODO) como única pega decir que justo debajo hay un bar/restaurante que pone música con altavoz en la calle, cosa que hizo que nuestra primera noche no pudiéramos conciliar el sueño hasta las 00:00 por culpa de un grupo de turistas extremadamente eufóricos, aunque nuestro bebé ni se enteró!!!!. El resto de días la música era soportable.
it was a very nice holiday in this nice, clean flat, with a great view to the cathedral, especially in the night. 5 minutes to the river and the center, 2 minutes to the bus to the beach. the hosts are very sympatic and helpful. we would book it again. thank you very much!!
We had a lovely stay at this apartment. Christina and her husband were nice to accept us with a late check in, some port wine and the place was romantic and clean. The location was perfect, we explored Porto by foot. There was quite a lot of traffic in Rua des Flores due to work in progress in the city centre, so we woke up quite early. But overall, the place was very nice!
It is a very good appartment in the middle of the Rua das Flores, in the middle of the Ribeira area the straat it is at this moment (april 2013) a very noisy, because they are rebuilding it.
It was no problem for us, because sittng with a cup of tea/coffee or a glass of wine at the open window you can see and hear a lot of different things. We enyod it very much.
The appartment is very close to the bridge and in the Rua das Flores are a good restaurants and also a lot of - little - shops.
We highly recommand this appartment to those who wants to stay for a couple of days in Porto.

The apartment was wonderful and well located. We explored Porto by foot, what is easy and short to walk from the apartment and we discovered that porto is a nice city. All the things wel could think of was in the apartment the neighbourhood. Only thing I missed was salt, pepper, cooking oil and dishwash soap.
The welcom Port was great.
Thanks we had a great weekend.
What an incredible apartment in the heart of an incredible city! The street (Rua dos Flores, meaning "Flowers street"!) used to be the street where noble families of Porto built their houses. Half of them are in excellent condition while others wait to be repaired... And yet one can read the history of the city by looking on these houses. The street is absolutely charming and perfect for couples! The apartment is located just 5 min. by foot from the world famous Porto waterfront. The building is very old, decorated with famous Portuguese tiles (azulejos) and has incredibly beautiful windows and wooden floors. Although very old outside, the apartment is very modern inside which matches the old walls and windows very well. We loved sitting together at the window on the stone benches (which are seen in the pictures and are part of a very thick old stone wall) enjoying our morning coffee. The bathroom is very modern, equipped with everything we needed. The kitchen also had everything one needs to cook, we loved sitting on the couch and enjoying nice Port wine which our lovely hosts have left for us in a beautiful glass carafe in the beginning of our stay. As in many Portuguese houses, the windows have wooden shutters so that one can sleep in complete darkness, one sleeps this way very well. The table where we had dinners was very lovely too, with beautiful old chairs and a romantic small window above it, in the middle of the old stone wall. The communication with the host was excellent, I always got prompt answer and both Cristina and her husband (who let us in on our first day) are very friendly and helpful. There was also a free Porto map waiting for us in the apartment and a book for travelers (please do write down about your experience there!)... The apartment is just 3 minutes away from the beautiful Jardim do Infante Dom Henrique. Please do not miss the old Market building (Mercado), we were positively shocked as it is not a market any more but a beautiful restaurant / lounge with food prepared on open fire and lovely furniture - this is upstairs. We understood that there's a club on the ground floor as well. A good tip to stop by after a long day discovering Porto on your way home for a glass of Port wine. I will stay here again, for sure. Thank you very much, Cristina!
Wonderful stay in Porto in great location !
We arrived at midnight and our hosts were already expecting us. They were extremely friendly and gave us very valuable information on the city. We felt very welcome in the apartment which we had rented for 11 days. The two rooms are spacious. The hallway is big and contains closets for belongings. The kitchenette contained all kinds of equipment which we did not use. But we used the electric water heater to prepare our morning tea which we enjoyed on the small balcony in the morning sun.
The location is absolutely excellent, 10 minutes from the Douro Ribeira, 15 minutes to Bolaho market. Just a couple of houses up the road is a small bistro serving wonderful little dishes of organic food.
A great big thank you to John and Christina. We will definately visit Porto again and this apartment will be our preferance for accomodation!
Great appartment in a central location!
