The house has a nice terrace where you can drink something or have a meal while enjoying the gardens and Formosa River. The House has one bedroom (with King Size Bed) and there are also two single beds on the Living Room, so this house accommodates up to four people which means that this house if perfect for a couple with 2 children (we can supply an extra matress for a 3 children). We are keeping a large pine tree next to the house. This way, the house has lots of surrounding shadows keeping it fresh because we don't like to have A/C at the house.
From the terrace you can enjoy the nature of Ria Formosa protected Natural Park. This area of Algarve is also fresher (from 28 to 33 degrees during the summer). The gardens are available to all resort guests. It is a big garden where you can rest or read a book.
We supply towels and bed linen too. The kitchen is fully equipped to make your own breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is also a dishwasher and a washing machine. You will have free and unlimited wireless internet at the resort's reception from 8:00 a.m to midnight. We have just replaced the old 14" TV that you see on the photos by a new LED 22" TV
Private parking in front of the house (at 50 meters).
The house is at 250 meters from the Swimming Pool and tennis court. You just have to walk 4 minutes to get there. On the other hand, is long enough to keep peace and quiet during the day (avoiding the rush of the children at the swimming pool) and during the night (avoiding the noise of the night activities at the lounge area near the pool).
To go to Barril's famous beach, residents will have to cross a rustic bridge to the beach island just in front of the resort and take the rustic train (free of charge for our guests) that takes 6 to 7 minutes on a great trip over the Formosa River Natural Park and arrive to the beautiful beach of Barril placed at the island called "Ilha de Tavira". Barril Beach is very well known in Algarve for his high quality. You can rent a canopy or a sun umbrella. You can also enjoy the bars, restaurants, nautical sports, shops and Ice Cream shops on the beach. Train trips cost 2,4€ (Both ways) per person but it is free for our guests (we supply 4 free passes).
The nearest village to the resort is Santa Luzia and it is at 2,4 Kilometers which means you can walk to this village. It is a fisherman's village, so there are lots of nice restaurants to eat fish and sea food. But you can also eat nice meat dishes.
If you are looking for a modern, fancy place and/or with a very active night life, this is not the best option. If you are looking for rustic place, for a relaxing stay in Algarve surrounded by the nature, this will be a very good experience on this quiet and beautiful natural resort.
We accept Late check-in until 01:00 and late check-out will be accepted if we don't have new guests check-in on the same day you leave.
The House is a part of the "Pedras D'el Rei" Resort. At your arrival, you should go to the village's reception. There you will get the villa keys and the cards that will give you the free access to the Swimming Pool and to the Train that goes to "Barril" Beach.
When making the check-out, please only deliver the keys from the front door at the reception. Leave the keys from the terrace door and terrace gate inside the house, above the kitchen's table.

A casa é pequena e pouco pratica para um casal com duas crianças.
A casa tem pouca iluminação natural, julgo que está feita mais para o verão e não para quando os dias estão frios e nublados
A localização é boa, pois fica dentro do aldeamento que tem áreas verdes para as crianças brincarem e fica muito perto da praia.
Most beautiful appartment in Porto! In the middle of the town with everything you need. Cristina, you should mention that there is a hairdryer :-).
Wonderful stay in Porto in great location !
We arrived at midnight and our hosts were already expecting us. They were extremely friendly and gave us very valuable information on the city. We felt very welcome in the apartment which we had rented for 11 days. The two rooms are spacious. The hallway is big and contains closets for belongings. The kitchenette contained all kinds of equipment which we did not use. But we used the electric water heater to prepare our morning tea which we enjoyed on the small balcony in the morning sun.
The location is absolutely excellent, 10 minutes from the Douro Ribeira, 15 minutes to Bolaho market. Just a couple of houses up the road is a small bistro serving wonderful little dishes of organic food.
A great big thank you to John and Christina. We will definately visit Porto again and this apartment will be our preferance for accomodation!
Great appartment in a central location!
Super location. Don't understand how our booking went wrong - we were looking forward to the romantic flat with love seats... The equipment in the flat we were in was very basic, and the lighting poor - expecially in the kitchen area. (It is a great flat to be enjoyed in g o o d , sunny weather!)

Cristina & John are very nice and helpful people, giving lots of information at arrival. House in the middle of Porto old town (pedestrian zone), many nice shops, bars and restaurants in the neighborhood, very close to the river and many sightseeing spots. Don't bring a car, parking is difficult. Flat very clean and decent, well-equipped. Only one negative point: the ventilation of the downstairs restaurant is somewhat annoying, since it's close to the windows and runs half of the night.
Anyway: Thanks for the nice stay, we enjoyed Porto very much!
I have stayed in several rented flats through Wimdu and other similar sites in several different countries and this was my best experience so far. Christina and João were welcoming, professional, and comprehensive. I had immediate responses to text messages upon arrival to Porto to provide accurate descriptions for arrival to the flat and they were there to greet me at the time they said they would be. Amazingly, these details which might appear simple to fulfil, are often forgotten about or messed up entirely by hosts. Before leaving us, Christina and João made sure we were comfortable and had everything that we needed. This included a comprehensive list of printed recommendations of bars, restaurants, activities and suggestions for our stay.
The flat itself was beautiful. A modern conversion in an old building which the photos don't really do justice. There is a big entrance space that leads to a large bedroom (very comfortable queen sized bed), a perfectly proportioned bathroom (great shower and bathtub, bidet), and a kitchen/living room. The bedroom and the kitchen/living room had floor to ceiling windows that looked out on the old buildings at the edge of the old district of Porto and let in beautiful natural light in the morning. The location of the flat was perfect, with everything in walking distance.
I would not hesitate to stay here again. 10/10.
Wonderful hosts, both Cristina et her husband John. The directions to get to the apartment could not have been more accurate. Then during our 1st meeting they gave us very useful information on restaurants (which we visited and which were excellent). They also told us about a Fado dinner night, but when there was no Fado that night they looked for another place. We called immediately and booked the last table. It was fabulous! Many many thanks!
We stayed in Porto for a week and we really felt at home in this appartment. The kitchen was well equipped with all the tools you might need to cook a meal or make an espresso or tea. Christina and her family gave us a warm welcome, some advice about where to go and contacts to go surfing.
Even though during the day there was roadwork in front of the house, it did not bother us, since the appartement was located on the other side of the building. (Besides, the work seemed to progress quickly.) Instead we enjoyed waking up to the sounds of seagulls and church bells.
From the appartement you can easily walk the whole old town or simply use the close by public transportation to reach more dinstant locations. We strongly recommend trying it out for yourselves and have a great time experiencing Porto!
it was a very nice holiday in this nice, clean flat, with a great view to the cathedral, especially in the night. 5 minutes to the river and the center, 2 minutes to the bus to the beach. the hosts are very sympatic and helpful. we would book it again. thank you very much!!
