Can there, down the street, drink free sample of the famous wines that give prominence to this region, coming to fruition in many other historic and monumental attractions. If you like wines be careful because it can become uncontrolled because of so much free wine temptation. At the bottom of Rua Serpa Pinto (near the pier) there is an official tourism agency where you can choose the places to visit and plan their vacation days. One week will be the ideal place to experience the best that is offered here.
There is a store that sells just below all food and beverage products, as well as any other material you need in your day-to-day for your personal comfort and hygiene. There are many restaurants nearby.
Among those already mentioned, one of the features that makes this very attractive apartment is a must see and the fact of being beside a train (Devesas - Vila Nova de Gaia) station and 750 meters from the underground (General Torres) station.

Reviews of this property
Sehr schön eingerichtete und saubere Wohnung. Der Gastgeben Armando war sehr nett und hilft bei Problemen gerne aus. Die Wohung liegt in unmittelbarer Nähe zu den berühmten Portweinkellern. Ins Stadtzentrum beziehungsweise zur nächsten Metro-Station sind es zu Fuß jedoch zwanzig Minuten.
Reviews for this host's other properties
Great thanks to Armando for nice hospitality (and help to find the building at time of arrival; Google maps was 700 meters wrong).
We really enjoyed the stay. This flat is very spacious - i think even up to 6 persons will feel very comfortable.
The flat is on most upper floor / 4th floor (stairs) and offers direct view to the sea. Close to highway exit which makes it comfortable to get around. Pizza shop next house. Couple of other shops (Lidl, Farmacia, restaurants, train station to Porto, etc) in 5 minutes driving distance.
No noisy neighbours, so we had a great sleep all nights.
For cold days (and I think there are very few ones) Armando has electrical heaters in the flat.
2 bathrooms w towels, living room, big kitchen w table, 3chairs, gas oven & microwave (and all you need for some cooking if you want); 2 sleeping rooms with big wardrobes and space for luggage (beds ary very OK ... not too soft / not to hard, in good condition). If I´m correct ... the double-bed is 2x2m.
We found the flat excellent cleaned and with modern appearance. The flat obviously is not for private usage of the owner, so you won´t encounter any personal belongings or private equipment there.
Flat TV (Portugese, Spanish, English, Italian, French channels) and Wlan available.
We used the underground car park in the same building (direct access from the stairways without getting wet when its raining outside). All save. We received remote control to get access. One car park is assigned to the flat at no extra cost.
All in all we had a very good place for the money.
Armando, the owner, was very helpful when arriving and easy key handling at the moment of departue.
A really nice landlord. We have been in this appartment for 5 days without any problems. The appartment is a place to easily have a relaxed and nice time. Anytime again!
Armando gave us a very warm welcome. The flat was very clean, comfortable, , nicely decorated and had everything we needed and more, including heaters and a well equipped kitchen. The location is very convenient with quick links to the main roads and Porto on one side and Granja beach and Miramar golf courese within a few minutes drive. Armando also gave us very good tipps and we had an excellent and very good value dinner out and made good use of the pastellaria for breakfast nearby. Thank you for a lovely stay!
We had a wonderful stay. Armando is a friendly, helpful and pleasant gentleman. Undoubtedly repeat.
Hemos tenido una maravillosa estancia. Armando es un señor amable, atento y agradable. Repetiremos sin duda alguna.
Very nice spacious apartment! To the beach about 2km, nearby there is a bakery, a small fruit shop, a butcher and a small supermarket (1,5 km). Until Lidl about 3 km (direction Espinho). There is also a bus service to Porto (about 35 minutes), or according Espinho that we have used very often. Missing in the apartment we have a washing machine and a vacuum cleaner, otherwise our stay would have been perfect.
The host Armando is a very nice and helpful person, whom we thank once again all my heart.
Sehr schöne geräumige Wohnung! Bis zum Strand ca. 2KM, in der Nähe gibts einen Bäcker, einen kleinen Obstladen, einen Metzger und einen kleinen Supermarkt (1,5 KM). Bis zum Lidl ca. 3 KM (Richtung Espinho). Es gibt auch eine Busverbindung nach Porto (ca. 35 Min), oder nach Espinho, die wir sehr oft genutzt haben. Vermisst in der Wohnung haben wir eine Waschmaschine und einen Staubsauger, ansonsten wäre unser Aufenthalt perfekt gewesen.
Der Gastgeber Armando ist ein sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Mensch, dem wir nochmals vom ganzen Herzen danken.
Enjoyed a week at the cottage at Armando, who welcomed us warmly. A great host who make us wish for the sentence. We used the bikes to ride along the beach. Shop around. Well little shelter, but we knew: excellent price / quality ratio. Because you have a terrace near the beach is a fine stay for a week.
Een weekje genoten in het huisje bij Armando, die ons hartelijk verwelkomde. Een prima gastheer die het ons naar de zin wou maken. We hebben de fietsen gebruikt om langs het strand te fietsen. Winkel in de buurt. Wel klein onderkomen, maar dat wisten we: prima prijs/ kwaliteit verhouding. Doordat je een terras hebt en vlak bij het strand zit een prima verblijf voor een weekje.
A very friendly and helpful host, and the apartment very near the beach (nice and big, with good sand), and 25 minutes from downtown by car port
Un Anfitrion muy agradable y atento, y el apartamento muy cerca de la playa(grande y bonita, con arena buena), y a 25 min del centro de oporto en coche
Beautiful beach beside the site. The perfect, clean and although it seems small studio is very comfortable. It has everything you need, and if you need anything there is Armando, the anfitiron. Charming and helpful. A few minutes from downtown Porto. We had a great few days. Armando thanks for everything.
Sitio precioso al lado de la playa. El estudio perfecto, limpio y aunque parece pequeño es muy confortable. Tiene todo lo necesario, y si necesitas algo ahi esta Armando, el anfitiron. Encantador y servicial. A pocos minutos del centro de Oporto . Pasamos unos dias estupendos. Gracias Armando por todo.
The studio is very small and cramped, but otherwise nice and especially clean. However, the apartment is pleasant in the summer than in the fall / winter, because it is very dark, when you can not leave the door open, but have normal one is mostly just for sleeping in the studio, that's why ....... Armando is very, very nice and helpful. So we would not hesitate to book again.
Das Studio ist sehr klein und eng, aber ansonsten schön und vor allem sauber. Allerdings ist die Wohnung im Sommer angenehmer, als im Herbst/Winter, da sie sehr dunkel ist, wenn man die Türe nicht offen lassen kann, aber normalerweisen ist man ja überwiegend nur zum schlafen im Studio, von daher.......Armando ist sehr, sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Also wir würden es jederzeit wieder buchen.
