From start to finish, Alex could not have been more helpful and considerate.
The apartment was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. It was based in an excellent location and we made full use of the balcony overlooking the ocean with its beautiful sunsets.
The local bus service, situated close to the apartment, ran punctually and regularly. We found buying a 3 day Andante tour card a very convenient way to travel around the city, via bus, metro, train or tram.
There are good restaurants nearby as well as a large local Supermarket.
We thoroughly enjoyed a full day trip to the historic Douro valley, which may sound expensive at 80 Euros, but included a guide, with driver, in an air-conditioned coach, a tasty 3 course lunch at a family- run restaurant, situated high on top of a mountain surrounded with stunning views of vineyards; a river cruise and ending with a wine tasting!!
However, how nice it was to return to our lovely apartment at the end of each visit. Thank you Alex for everything & sharing your home with us.
