This apartment for rent in Oporto is located at the Cathedral (Sé) Neighborhood, one among the 4 (Sé, Miragaia, S. Nicolau and Victoria) at Oporto historic centre, elected in 1996 by the Unesco as World Heritage.
Oporto's austere fortress-like cathedral (Sé) is where Prince Henry the Navigator was baptized. It's origin dates from the 12th Century. S. Bento's train station is also a must to visit due to the wonderful tiles. It is the beginning of the Douro line and has also connection to the subway and to the line from Campanhã (the connection to the north and south of Portugal).
From here there is easy access to the bridge D. Luis (built between 1881 and 86 after Eiffel's associated Teofilo Seyrig's design) and way to Gaia and the Porto's cellars area, where you can taste some of the best brands. You are also at walking distance of the other historic areas, namely Ribeira, by the river.
The nearest metro stop is S. Bento (50m). The metro can also take you to Póvoa de Varzim, where is a big beach and also one of the most famous casinos. If you prefer you can go to Espinho, to the beach or the casino. If you want to go to Foz (the nearest beach at the North bank) you can take the tramway and will be there in 10 minutes; further there are buses to Matosinhos, where you can enjoy more seaside.

A spotlessly clean, tidy, cosy, comfortable apartment, it was just like staying at a friends place ... nice and home like. We had four nights here and would be happy to stay here again if we are ever so lucky as to return to Porto.
Booking was helpful and prompt. The host was readily available, meeting us on time at the building, assisting with our bags, and settling us into the apartment. Bottle of welcoming port was a nice touch.
The apartment is upstairs, there is a slow lift, we tended to walk the stairs. The central heating worked well. The apartment has two bedrooms; main bedroom has two single beds, bed side tables, chairs, and a large wardrobe, this bedroom opens onto the terrace area. The second bedroom is an internal room, small with a single bed and shelves for unpacking (In the pics it shows a wardrobe in this room ... when we stayed there was no wardrobe, only shelves). The combined kitchen, dining, lounge is comfortable and very well equipped including a clothes washing machine, and this area opens via french doors to the terrace area. There is one bathroom with shower over bath. Plenty of hot water which we Australians like!
Wifi and cable tv (the cable has a selection of English speaking programs).
The terrace area has a good view over the cathedral. The apartment is in a good location for site seeing and we walked to and from everywhere from here.
