Green Park Residence is a very modern apartment (2007), in the Metropolitan area of Oporto, at Granja beach, 15 minutes driving from Oporto, and 5 minutes walking from the beach. Enjoy a delicious healthy breakfast, a comfortable bed and relax. Go to the beach or swimming pool (sea water or fresh water), or SPA, do some trekking, birdwatching, bicycle rides, surf, fish, golf, horse riding, light aircraft flights, or just have a nice walk through the 15 Km footway along the beach (these 15km beaches have earned a premium quality water and it's classified with blue flags). There are 3 hypermarkets around. Here you have all the options very close! 25 minutes walking through the footway from the railway station. At the beginning of 2011, I started to go to Porto by train everyday, instead of using my car. Usually, I use the footway and I feel that the quality of my life has been improved! It’s a beautiful and ecological opportunity to relax every morning. And I start the day full of energy! Espinho which has come from a group of fishermen and became into an important water resort in the 19th century, being visited by a lot of people due to it's well known sea water therapeutic effects, and very well situated, considering the railway built in 1870. Espinho offers you, as well, an important Casino, a water resort, where you can find thalassotherapy, as well as lots of hotels and restaurants, where famous sea products can be eaten. Espinho is well known for the fishing port and the wonderful fresh food. If you love to eat well, especially fresh fish...you are in the right place. Here you can see the true Portuguese tradition.

Raquel's Oporto beach and nature is a really lovely place to stay in porto if you're looking to escape the city and see a bit more of portugal than just touristy areas. We had a really great time here, the beach is close, the room is good and Raquel is an extremely nice and friendly person. I would definitely recommend this place, especially in the summer for the beach!
Thank you for your kind words! We keep in touch ;) Raquel Ribeiro

If you are looking for ideal place for your holiday where you will feel much more better than in some unpersonal hotel, try Oporto Beach & Nature. It has perfect location, near to the sea and nature (coast is very nice and provided many opportunities to sport and relax) but also near to Porto-centrum by train (about 20 minutes). If I will travel to Portugal in future, I book my accommodation again at Raquel. She is so pleasant, nice, helpful, communicative person. This is the best place to stay in Portugal!
Dear Klara, thank´s a lot for your words. You are a very special person. I´m very happy to had the opportunity to meet you. We keep in touch!
