I wanted to plan a special couples weekend in Porto, and this was the perfect spot to do it. Álvaro was extremely helpful right from the start, answering all of my questions and going above and beyond to help me plan a great trip. He recommended food and restaurants which were all fantastic choices. The man knows his food... =)
The guesthouse itself is a renovated marvel, with an excellent location close enough to walk to everything, yet removed enough to have peace when necessary. I would go there again next time I am in Porto.
