We recently spent a couple of nights at the Guesthouse Douro. We were enchanted by the city of Porto, the vibrant music and magic of the boardwalk below our window overlooking the Douro River. Our hosts Carmin and Jaou quickly became family who helped us find authentic restaurants, guided us to sights to see, and seemed to have all the time in the world to chat with us when we returned in the evenings from busy days of walking and exploring. Jaou's breakfasts were works of art, and truly delicious. Carmin is full of fun, yet helpful in every way.
