This was my second homestay over and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Right from Helder and his parents who welcomed us like we were long lost friends to the actual property, it was a lovely experience. The house is gorgeous and has ample space, it's well ventilated, and very well maintained. It's like your own paradise in the middle of a very charming town. The pictures and descriptions don't really do it justice, you've got to stay there to believe it. For people who drive, the location is quite convenient. There are multiple cafes and supermarkets around that are very accessible by car, and to a certain extent, on foot! Considering we don't drive, it was very thoughtful of Helder's father Sebastian to drive us to and pick us up from the station, and take us to the airport when we we were leaving. They were very warm and made us feel extremely comfortable. If we go back to Porto, we'd not think twice about staying here again. I would definitely recommend Helder's place to anyone visiting Porto. It made the trip all the more enjoyable. I don't think we'd have loved the city as much had we stayed anywhere else.
