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.
If you want to rent a car, then we can take care of the car rental. We will send you the price quote so you can analyse it and you will just have to pay to the car rental company. The car can be delivered at the airport or at the apartment and the rental company will even wait for you at the airport if the flight delays.

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.
Nuestra estancia fué perfecta. El apartamento muy amplio y en buenas condiciones. La localización estupenda, cerca del mar y con una línea de autobuses que te dejan en Oporto en muy pocos minutos y el recorrido es precioso.
El anfitrión encantador y muy dispuesto.
Most beautiful appartment in Porto! In the middle of the town with everything you need. Cristina, you should mention that there is a hairdryer :-).
"Daumen hoch" für die hübsche Unterkunft im historischen Viertel von Porto. Die Wohnung bietet alles, was man für einen Kurzaufenthalt braucht. Sie liegt in einer Fußgängerzone, von der man alle Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß erreichen kann. Ebenso findet man in unmittelbarer Nähe kleine Lokale und nette Läden. Der Gastgeber John hat uns sehr freundlich empfangen und mit Informationsmaterial über Restaurants, Sehenswürdigkeit....ausgestattet.
Sehr zu empfehlen!!!!
Appartement très agréable et très bien situé pour le surf.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour.
En améliorant l'équipement de l'appartement ce serait parfait. Il manque des verres à vin et des couteaux de cuisine.
Un très bon séjour, nous reviendrons.
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!

Staying at the apartment of Cristina and John was great. Both are wonderful hosts. Cristina and John made us feel very welcome and given us a lot of information about Porto. The apartment was spotlessly clean and decorated with lots of charm. The historic ambience was maintained by a gentle stylish renovation. In the apartment nothing was missing and the views of the cathedral from the balcony was awesome. The apartment is very quiet and is located in the pedestrian zone. Everything is very good erreichbat on foot. We thank our hosts Cristina and John very much for everything. We are happy to return to this place wunscherschönen.

Der Aufenthalt im Apartement von Cristina und John war grossartig. Die beiden sind wunderbare Gastgeber. Cristina und John haben uns herzlich willkommen geheissen und uns viele Informationen über Porto mitgegeben. Die Wohnung war blitzsauber und mit viel Charme eingerichtet. Das historische Ambiente wurde durch eine sanfte stilvolle Renovation beibehalten. In der Wohnung fehlte es an nichts und die Aussicht auf die Kathedrale vom Balkon aus war einmalig. Die Wohnung ist sehr ruhig gelegen und befindet sich in der Fussgängerzone. Alles ist sehr gut zu Fuss erreichbat. Wir danken unseren Gastgebern Cristina und John ganz herzlich für alles. Wir kehren gerne an diesen wunscherschönen Ort zurück.

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!)
