Nice location, we felt very welcome by Estela. We loved the garden, with even a cottage full of toys. Kids loved it. Garden full with fruits. The only thing we were surprised by were the planes flying over frequently.

Nice and cozy apartment with a very cute garden. The apartment is not in the centre but it was not a problem for us. With an uber it was easy to Get to the centre of Porto(6-9€) . The area is very quite :) I recommend it to a family travel like ours :)

We spent five nights at Estela's place with our two little boys. The garden is a little paradise and Estela's soup was so delicious! Communication is easy and totally friendly! Porto is nice but it takes 30 minutes to go to the city center by bus which was a little bit a hassle with the kids. But all in all very nice!

For us it was a great experience to stay in Estela's apartment. It's situated in a nice and quiet neighborhood with everything you need around the corner: public transport to the city center and to the beach and a big supermarket. The house was very clean and all essential equipment was available. But the beautiful garden is what makes this place really a treasure. Fresh fruit trees, with fruit that could be enjoyed every morning, beautiful flowers everywhere and so many little corners with small collections that could be discovered during our stay. And not to forget Estela's warm, kind and joyful personality, her homemade soups and all kinds of other attentions. Estela is the best host you could wish for, after a week it felt a bit like family. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and I certainly hope to come back here one day!

Estela's place is lovely. The garden is a big draw, it is a wonderful place to relax, full of flowers and fruit trees. The house itself has all amenities and is comfortable for four people. The local neighbourhood has lots of conveniences, bakery, bank, shops, cafes etc. If on public transport, getting into town is a bit of a journey, 1hr, but uber is available in Porto and reasonable for taxi rides, and the beach and park Ciudade are a short 30-40 minute walk (or there are buses!). For our purposes that suited us perfectly. Would go back!

Porto is full of pleasant surprises: history, culture, gastronomy, and above all - people. And our stay at Estela's family house confirmed that yet again. A town house: quiet, peaceful, with uncomplicated decor, and an absolutely charming garden. All functioned well. The wireless internet in the house itself was off a couple of times, but it was an extension from the other building and such connections are prone to instability. We could get online easily if seated in the garden, or on the terrace next to Estela's exquisite library. Estela is such a fine host — prior to our arrival, communication was prompt, accurate and welcoming. During our stay, we felt truly cared for. We had a most enjoyable stay and, given the chance, will return with no hesitation!

We only booked a few days before arriving as I wasn't sure what we wanted to do. The house is as the description, more than enough space and equipment for us. The garden is lovely which drew me to the property originally. We ate our dinner outside a few times which was a nice way to end the day. We didn't want to be too close to the centre of Porto as we visited Northern Portugal as well. So for that the location was ideal. We used the bus as directed by Estela into Porto, which was straight forward. We used the local supermarket which had a deli that sold ready prepared meals, as good as home cooked. We had a hire car which we had no issue parking outside the house. The other days we drive to Braga, Bom Jesus and the seaside town of Viana Do Castelo. All highly recommended. The most disappointing part was our visit to Porto FC on the last day, which must be the most boring football grounds we have ever visited. One evening we visited a local restaurant (suggested by Estela) where we had a nice local meal. Estela was a an excellent host. She made us feel very welcome and that we had everything we needed' but at the same time allowed us our privacy.
