São João Apartment
- 63 m²
Full property description
This is the largest apartment of the Eiffel building with its generous 63 sqm. It was recently renovated and designed to the highest specifications, making it one of a kind. The spacious double room downstairs and the second room in the mezzanine provide intimacy for two couples in two magnificent separated spaces.
Decorated with soft blue colours this studio provides character and atmosphere for a great stay in the centre of Porto.
Gustave Eiffel apartments are in a recently rehabilitated XIX century building in a unique location, both for its fantastic view over the Douro river, just 20 meters in front, and for the typical local neighborhood that will make you feel a traveler instead of a tourist.
It is right in the heart of World Heritage Site of Porto’s historic centre. Just next to the building you have the Guindais Funicular that will take you to the upper part of Porto’s centre and a large variety of walking tours; It is an experience in itself to go up this lift that gives you a breathtaking view over the D. Luis bridge, the river and Gaia just on the other side. The funicular was first build in 1891 but immediately deactivated 2 years later after an accident. In 2004 it was rebuild with modern technology and reactivated bringing back a connection between 2 of the most ancient and traditional quarters, Ribeira and Sé.
If you feel brave enough you can take the alternative of the Guindais stairs and feel the authenticity and history of every corner of the old stone houses.
The apartment is also 2 steps away from Ribeira where you have the cruises on the Douro, a wide offer of nice restaurants with terraces on the river front, the sightseeing bus tours .
On the Gaia side, apart from the obligatory visit to the Port Wine cellars, you have lots of activities like the recently opened cable car that takes you up to Serra do Pilar or the bar and restaurant area of Cais de Gaia.
The location is also fully served by bus lines, taxis and has 2 car parking at walking distance.
