Canto de Luz is that restful, intimate, classy, relaxed and contemporary place that gives your stay at Oporto an added dimension of fascination. As in everything that exudes refinement, the details is what makes the difference. Its owners know how to offer you in a discrete way what your perceptive sensibility is capable to enjoy. Be open and enjoy it... More

The hotel is located on an interesting street in Porto that belies the gem that you'll find behind the door at 539 do Almada. The host and hostess cater to your every need, the interior decor is very creative and the garden situation adds to the positive ambiance. The breakfasts are wonderful and were quite varied over our all too... More

It was a pretty impressive spread and delicious with homemade jams and baked delights.. Andre and Brigitte were very helpful with information on places of interest and where to... More

Canto de Luz's unassuming front door hides your own private oasis nestled within the quaint little town of Porto. The proprietors are the sweetest French couple who treat you like family. The entire property is top notch, we couldn't have been more pleased with our accommodations. A five star homemade breakfast catering down to the tiniest detail simply blew us... More

Impressive bed and breakfast! Brigitte and Andre prepared very good combination of accommodation and food. The house has very good location, beautiful rooms and awesome breakfast!!!. I do not remember that I had such good breakfast over last years (and I travel a lot). Apricots baked with almonds and rosemary are just not forgettable. And homemade marmalade, it is just... More

We spent 3 nights at Canto de Luz and agree wholeheartedly with all of the outstanding reviews. The house is beautiful and spotlessly clean, with stylish (but personalized) touches throughout. Breakfast was the best we had during our trip, delicious and varied each day. The location made it easy to explore the city on foot. I will say one thing:... More

One of the best B & B's we have ever found--anywhere. Conveniently located for site-seeing. Clean, quiet, modern, spacious room and bath, in a recently totally renovated building with elevator. The host couple, Andre & Bridgette, are friendly and infinitely accommodating, with a good command of English (they are French). Breakfasts, served inside or out in a private courtyard, were...
