The space

This apartment is an expression of my love for Nature and also my love for my city, Porto. Inspired by one of Porto's landmark's, Jardim Botânico - the old home of Sophia de Mello Breyner, famous Portuguese poetess - this 4 bedroom apartment has everything you need plus loads of green to get you in a peaceful mode. I wanted to create a space that, although it's located in a big city, would also bring that fresh touch of Nature.

• There are 4 bedrooms available, with a total of 3 double beds, 2 single beds and 2 bunk beds, all with comfortable mattresses and pillows so you can have a great night of sleep.

• The 3 existent bathrooms all have showers with good water pressure so you can take a nice comfortable shower after exploring the city. There is also a hairdryer for your convenience.

• dishwasher
• laundry machine
• oven
• microwave
• toaster
• citrus juice maker
• magic wand
• coffee machine and complementary capsules, as well as tea and all the utensils for you to cook your meals if you feel like doing it.

• The living room has a nice big TV with international channels if you fancy watching a movie or simply relax.
• You also have a balcony at your disposal which has a small lounge area where you can relax while having breakfast or a glass of wine at the end of the day.

Stunning apartment, very spacious and Sofia was very friendly and accommodating, even had a glass of port wine ready for us when we arrived all tired from a days walk through the hilly Porto. We were a group of 6 people and this apartment was super comfortable, so when someone needed space, there was always a room available to hide in and relax :). Also having 3 bathrooms was great, the queue for shower in the mornings was never an issue. We were a bit concerned about the distance to the center before we arrived, but it really isnt that far and worked perfectly for us. Btw the Uber there is super cheap, so if you share an uber with 3 people, it already is cheaper than taking metro into the city. Would definitely recommend this place for families or group of friends. Thank you Sofia for letting us stay there. We would love to come again.
