We kept and recovered as many elements of this historical Porto building as possible, using portuguese experts and artisans, this way respecting and celebrating the building’s long history.
During your stay we will offer a selection of portuguese organic foods for your breakfast.
The building consists of 4 spacious one room apartments and 3 also large studio apartments. Which makes it an unique choice for staying in Porto.
It was in 2012 when we first saw the building in Rua de Belmonte, right in the middle of Porto’s historical centre. Despite the general degradation a lot of the original historical elements were preserved. With an amazing central staircase, ornate ceilings and hardwood custom doors, these were the elements we wanted to preserve.
7 different apartments were made in the buildings 5 floors. 4 being one room apartments and 3 being studio apartments, each of them large and roomy, which isn’t very common in Porto accommodations on the town centre. 2 of the apartments also have a lovely view of the river Douro and the Porto Cathedral.
Our objective is to create a unique and personalized experience, making our guests feel at home with total comfort, all the while respecting the unique history of this 18th century building.
I enjoyed the beautifully renovated appartment, which is shining from cleanness and style. Due to its location - best fresh pastries, local market, tasty restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance + breathtaking views from the top appartment to the city - one of the best accommodation experiences. Also children loved to stay in this old and mysterious building, which they thought was magical - playing hide-and-seek and inventing stories kept them busy, while observing the birds on the rooftops. First timewithin our tours in European cities, we preferred staying in the accommodation, instead of staying out and exploring the city. The appartment itself is a sightseeing. Finally, we were spoiled by our host who provided us with carefully picked breakfast items (one of my kids loved pasteis de nata’s) and warm welcome. Suurepärane kogemus - soovitan soojalt!
Warm hospitality. Spacious and beautifully fitted out. A heritage building restored retaining it's original aesthetic. Great attention to detail. Delicious, consciously sourced bits for breakfast. Great position. It was a treat to stay in such an historic building. For the discerning traveller.
This property is truly a gem. My husband and I had a great experience with our 3day/2night stay. The place was nice and clean. It’s a great size bed, a good size area for dining, and a couch to lounge on. It had a kitchen so we were able to cook quick breakfast before leaving for our everyday walks around Porto. In the pantry, there is a bag of coffee, tea, cinammon, nuts, etc... and fresh breads and pastries in a bag by the door greets us in the morning. In the fridge, there is a box of eggs, fruits, yogurt (all organic). The bathroom is well kept. The aroma of the hair and body wash is fab. I normally bring my own hairdryer during trips because of my hair’s thickness, but they have a good one that worked perfectly. I should mention, I got spoiled by their 4-ply bathroom tissue. The location was near to 90% of the places we wanted to see. So, its a perfect spot for travelers and vacation seekers. In the morning, it was an easy area to try nearby coffeeshops but since we had great food already in the property, we saved the trip of breakfast hurdles. At night, the property is a great spot because you can go to the restaurants nearby which is literally a minute of walking and yet you don’t get bogged down of the noises. When we searched for Google photos of the facade, it still showed the old property. In actuality, it’s a beautiful big green door which is twice the size of a regular house door that leads to 3-4 flights of stairs. We stayed at the second floor. And it was lovely.
No sé muy bien por dónde empezar ya que el apartamento es una pasada. Su espacio, su decoración y sus servicios son fantásticos, no falta detalle. La cama es extraordinaria tanto por sus dimensiones como por la calidad de la ropa de cama y la comodidad del colchón y las almohadas. La ducha es estupenda y las toallas suaves. Por si fuera poco el apartamento está ubicado en una zona estupenda y los propietarios te facilitan el desayuno diariamente así como el servicio de limpieza del cuarto a diario. Vamos como estar en un hotel pero con más espacio.
Apartamento impecable en zona estupenda para conocer la ciudad. Difícil estar mas céntrico, todo a mano. El apartamento genial, superó mis espectativas. Alida y su marido encantadores, nos enseñaron la impresionante reforma que han echo en todo el edificio y es una verdadera pasada manteniendo la esencia arquitectónica del edificio antiguo. Techos altos con molduras y escalera central dignas de foto. Todo nuevo, echo con mucho gusto y el resultado se ve claramente al pasar la noche allí. Tranquilo, muy cómodo, desayuno buenísimo con productos ecológicos. Hemos estado 3 días mejor que en casa... para repetir y recomendar sin ninguna duda.
A place with a very special energy, every little detail tells a story! We felt right at home and the breakfast was delicious. Great location, it’s right next to the Ferreira Borges market and the amazing stock exchange palace.
