A beautifully centennial home superbly renovated, with great taste and feel for tradition, with all the modern comforts. The room (Douro) was superb, imaculate and cosy.
Within walking distance to all the must see places, including Ribeira, the port wine cellars just accross the bridge and the subway, we left the car parked most of the time allowing for an awsome three days close-in visit to Porto.
Álvaro was impecable and always available, making us feel at home from the get go. We look forward to come again, and most definitely will stay here next time.
