We stayed at Guest House Douro at the beginning and end of our trip to Portugal in July 2012. It was a great place to stay and our hosts, Carmen and Jaoa delightful. Their warm welcome, recommendations on restaurants, places to vist, Port cellars and advice were excellent. The guesthouse is in a fantastic location in the historic centre with a number of rooms with views over the River Douro. We were very comfortable staying there, enjoying Jaoa's artistic and delicious breakfasts, a treat we looked forward to every morning along with white Port aperitifs in the afternoon. A home away from home.
