Downtown Shelter (Casa da Praça) it's an apartment located in the heart of Aveiro’s center. Five minutes walking will take you to the main points of interest: the Ria, the Museums, Bars and Restaurants, the “Art Nouveaux” buildings, the typical streets of Beira-Mar, the Saltworks, the “Ovos-moles” (traditional sweet). You can enjoy a nice Portuguese meal, the sun in a nice café at just one step from home!
Downtown Shelter it’s at 7 km from the beach and 45 min. by train from Porto and Coimbra.
We wanted our house to be a comfortable space that can accommodate until six people. In both rooms you may choose between a king size bed or two single beds. Apart from a big kitchen, great for (also great) meals, you - and the kids - can play and read in a room with a foldable teepee, books and games for all ages. If you are a bike lover and enjoy a ride throughout the city, beach and surroundings, we also have two bikes waiting for you (we only charge a deposit that will be returned at the end)!
Downtown Shelter it's your new home, during your stay you are free to explore it.
We look forward to help you enjoying your rest/fun time in the best way possible. Whether finding the suitable spots for you, whether letting you quietly exploring and improvise your trip. It's your choice.
Due to its very central location, next to most of the city hot spots, you could hear some occasional noise. We have, though, equipment which will help you to spend a comfortable night sleeping (earplugs) plus three windows in the windows and blinds to reduce the sound coming from the outside.
Sou uma amante da natureza, adoro passeios de bicicleta e a praia em dias frios de inverno. Não dispenso momentos à mesa entre amigos e família: uma boa conversa acompanhada de petiscos! Gosto de fotografia, cinema, ler ao sol e o teatro completa os meus dias levando-me a sonhar.
A Luna, a Violeta, a Pitucha, a Nina e a Dori são os nossos animais de estimação e fazem parte da família! Viajar, viajar sempre que possível, mas confesso que adoro o regresso a casa!
Espero conhecer-vos em breve!
I´m a nature lover, I enjoy riding by old bike and I love the beach on cold winter days. I don’t miss a moment with friends and family around the table: an interesting conversation with a good meal! I also like photography, cinema, reading at the sun and the theatre completes me and let me dream.
Luna, Violeta, Pitucha, Nina and Dori are our pets and are family to us! Travel, travel everytime I can, but I confess: I love getting home again!
See you soon!
