My boyfriend and I loved this guest house in Porto! It was an excellently located home base with an incredibly beautiful interior. The owners updated a house that had been in the wife's family for many generations and kept the original stone and beams, adding in some eye-catching industrial style updates. The owners had great recommendations for things to do... More

We very lucky to find the accomodation and loved staying at Alvaro's place. The other comments are just true, there's nothing to add. Moreover Casa dos Guindais was worth every cent! Thank you also for the recommendations finding places to eat and discover.

First off, the owner Alvaro sets the tone. He is gracious, urbane and very proud of his property. Our emails always received prompt attention and his personal greeting upon arrival was flawless. We stayed 8 days in Cristal, a tiny apartment with a balcony over the garden. Big enough for two. The frig and cooking space are minimal but well... More
