My boyfriend and I loved this guest house in Porto! It was an excellently located home base with an incredibly beautiful interior. The owners updated a house that had been in the wife's family for many generations and kept the original stone and beams, adding in some eye-catching industrial style updates. The owners had great recommendations for things to do in the area and spent a lot of time making sure that we had everything we wanted. They included a lot of nice little touches like a small pitcher of port in each room and umbrellas to borrow in case of rain. The house is located right next to the bridge that leads to the port houses, which we loved. Definitely a place we would recommend to other travelers.
