Staying with Noémia, Carlitos and Jocas was a wonderful surprise!
Me and Roger needed a room for two months, until we could find our own apartment to settle in for the next years, and not only the room revealed privacy, comfort, cleanliness and access to their great garden, as the whole family took us in as one of their own, showering us with affection and the ocasional home-made pastry, inviting us to dinners and parties, introducing us to family and friends, taking great interest in our issues and helping a great deal with the logistics in starting our life in a new country.
We found in Noémia and Carlitos friends for life, and for that we’re extremely grateful. Had the room access to a kitchen, the family’d probably have a hard time keeping us out of their house!
Jokes aside, i strongly recommend staying in this room. If the house is a bit removed from the city centre, public transportation will get you to the most visited sites in Porto in 10-25 minutes. Also, the neighbourhood is really calm and has lots of cheap and good places to eat, supermarkets, cafés and bars and nice squares, so it was actually pretty nice for us!
Obrigada por tudo, família! Nos vemos em breve ;)
