The Shale House is an original slate house of more than 300 years, totally restored and inserted in the middle of nature, to offer you a peaceful stay at the gates of the wonderful city of Porto. Within a 5 minutes walking distance, you can take the train and get to the historic centre in 20 min (15min. by car). The Shale house has the capacity to accommodate 6 people, as it has one double bedroom and one twin room, both with private bathroom, and a mezzanine with a double sofa bed.
On the ground floor there is the kitchen (equipped with fridge, microwave, oven, stove and the basic kitchen utensils), a living space, a wc and the twin bedroom with private bathroom. On the first floor there is the double bedroom with private bathroom and the mezzanine. The shale house maintains the freshness during the summer and, for the coldest days, there is a wood burning stove to keep you warm. Outside the house there are green spaces and a huge terrace where you may take sun baths, have a nice barbecue and, on the warmest days, refresh yourself in a typical tank. For sports lovers, there is also a wooden pavilion that you may access to practice gymnastic or yoga. If you’re coming by car or any other vehicle, you can park it safely within the property.
