It doesn't look like much from the outside - but inside! Wow. A real gem in a great location, fabulous rooms, quiet as can be, great hospitality, and absolutely spectacular and filling breakfasts! The room is close to many great restaurants and an easy walk to the historic part of Porto.

Brigitte and André run a small but absolutely lovely guesthouse in Porto, only 4 rooms but if you plan to visit Porto, we hope you will be lucky enough to get a room with them.. We spent a weekend with them and it was such a wonderful experience. Great room and absolutely fabulous breakfast.

We stayed at this B&B during our recent visit to Porto, and I can say nothing negative about it !
