What we like about this property

The beautiful city of Porto in northern Portugal is often referred to as Cidade das Pontes – or the City of the Bridges. And this property pays homage to this nickname. It’s a collection of six minimalist contemporary apartments named after the city’s six famous bridges. And it features stunning views over the rooftops, the river and the bridges. A really cool vacation rental in Portugal that sleeps up to 24 guests.

Description

These six apartments are located on the bank of the River Douro near the Dom Luís Bridge. A double-decked metal arch designed by Teophile Seyrig, a student of Gustave Eiffel, the bridge opened in 1886, spans the river between Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia, and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This dramatic setting inspired the names of these six minimalist, modern apartments. The largest is D. Luís itself, which is ideal for families, two couples or a group of friends. The bridge has two decks, and this apartment has two bedrooms with room for six guests, as well as a deck with a stunning view of Porto. 

Da Maria is the smallest of the apartments, with one bedroom that sleeps two guests. S. João, Freixo Arrábida, and Infante all have one bedroom and a sofa bed, with enough space for four guests. Each apartment has a bathroom and a kitchenette. 

Design-wise, the apartments couldn’t be simpler. Bare wood, concrete, utilitarian furniture, no clutter, no frills, with breathtaking views and an unbeatable location. A great vacation rental in Portugal for couples, families or large groups.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Daily housekeeping, in-room breakfast, wifi, cable TV are included in the rental price. There is also a patio, and a store with regional products, ideal for purchasing gifts or souvenirs, or using in the kitchenettes.

AROUND

Porto is the second largest city in Portugal, and has a beautiful historical center, designated a World Heritage Site in 1996. According to Lonely Planet, “humble-yet-opulent Porto entices with its higgledy-piggledy medieval centre, divine food and wine, and charismatic locals.”

But there’s more to the city than its past. Buildings like Álvaro Siza Vieira’s minimalist Museu de Arte Contemporânea and Rem Koolhaas’ Casa da Música bring the city into the 21st century. It’s a city full of public art and spirited nightlife. Yet it’s only minutes from the beach town of Foz do Douro, the coastal path and sandy beaches.

    Fabulous location with panoramic view of the old town. The apartment was lovely and comfy. We loved the small details: there were fresh flowers in the living room and bathroom :), there were two umbrellas in case there is rain, and it was actually raining so they proved very useful. Staff were super super sweet, friendly, polite and helpful. Mostly sweet things for breakfast: muffins, croissants etc to which we were not used to so we asked for some scrambled eggs and from then on, each morning, we got eggs as an addition. :) We did not even need to ask for it. They really made us feel at home there. Would go back anytime and we recommend it to everyone.

    Oh! Porto is definetely one of the best located accomodations you could find in Porto, or Vila Nova de Gaia, to be exact! It is located just by the bridge Dom Luis I on the Gaia bank of the Douro. The view from the hotel room is awesome – just overlooking the picturesque old town of Porto. Everything is right nearby – the old town as well as the portwine cellars. The staff is very, very friendly and caring and one can really feel the pleasure and joy they have with runnig this hotel. We got one of the most comprehensive introductions to the city as well. The rooms are modern and comfortable. Breakfast with local products is supplied to your room on request. I definetly can recommend this hotel.

    The staff is very welcoming and to our little care. The breakfast is gargantuan :) A basket filled with good things. Our accommodation was spacious, well laid out, very pleasant northern spirit and a superb view of the Douro. A terrace is also accessible, unfortunately the rainy weather did not allow us to enjoy it. The hotel is very well located, a few meters from the bridge that separates us from Porto. We were able to leave our bags at the hotel on the last day and we were offered umbrellas. It is very pleasant. In addition, they make the effort to speak French and speak it well. Thank you all for this beautiful stay :)
