The apartment is situated in the center of Porto uphill the old town, that makes the walking to the main points of attraction very easily. It has recently been renovated and prepared for a comfortable stay. The past years had been a place that host many foreign students that choose to live here and share their experience in Porto.

The apartment is situated in the second floor and its capable to host three persons, two in the big room and one more in a single room.
Although the apartment is situated uphill the downtown the coming back to the flat is still possible and enjoyable by foot, but you have always the option of using the metro that has direct connection with the old town and the flat, the metro stop “Faria Guimarães” is situated in the same street of the flat and the journey to the old town takes around 5 minutes. Besides that connection you can also use the metro to go till “Vila Nova de Gaia” the neighbor city where all the caves of Porto wine are situated and along the journey you can experience the emblematic bridge of D. Luis I and the river of D’ouro. One metro stop down the flat “Trindade” you will have direct connection with the airport and the beach side.
The apartment is equipped with all conditions and facilities for a comfortable and pleasant stay:
BEDROOM: Private room with plenty light and very cosy. Face to the back of the building that is quiet. Has a single bed and their lines (fresh sheets, pillows, blankets) and a swing chair for relaxing. From my experience I decide to fit a Ikea furniture that has squares for quick storing your belongings and clothes.
BATHROOM: Spacious bathroom where you will have hairdryer, toilet paper and shower gel always available. I’ll give you as well your own towel.
LIVING ROOM: Welcoming place with a lot of light. With dinner table for your meals, music instruments and sofa for relaxing. Sometimes we have friends coming by and feel free to join for some social interaction moments. We also sometimes play board games, feel free to join.

BALCONY: It’s the area of the cats that sometimes they do a bit of mess, and also the area for smoking.
LAUNDRY: In case you need there´s a washing machine in the kitchen and a drying area on the balcony. You have as well the detergent so you can do your laundry.
Interaction with guests
Upon your arrival I will give you a map of Porto if you didn’t get one already and try to mark the most important places around the flat and the way to the points of your interest and the main attractions in the city. Depending of my availability, I´ll be happy to show you around Porto the most interesting places to visit and the less touristic places as well. Me and Lola will be always available to recommend and indicate in the map whatever you are looking for.
Other things to note
There´s two playful and sociable cats (Meca and Lua), if you feel uncomfortable we can find a solution. Sometimes Meca is too active and might dirty something in the kitchen so I ask sorry in advance for that. They are not allowed in the rooms or bathroom and there´s a door that needs always to be close to keep them away for that divisions.
