Simply great. Beautiful done old house. Great garden. Nice rooms. Unique breakfast through the daily cake backed by Grandmother (except the Monday morning one of course). All organized and otherwise made possible by Marta and Pedro and their staff. What it is that makes more visits inevitable we cannot lay the finger on. Just go and see.

I spend 3 nights here with a friend and it's the most amazing little guesthouse you can imagine. We got a simple but lovely and clean room with a door out to the garden. The people who owns it are very kind and very helpful and they give all their guests a map with their own recommandations. The breakfast is small but with very high quality and homemade cake every day... I would definitely go back here again. If you don't like to walk you should probably consider somewhere else, it takes ca. 30 mins to go to Ribeira - but I obviously felt like it was worth it.

Room Tip: Ask to get a room in the back of the house, with a view to the garden.

Overall we had a very nice stay at Porta Azul.

Pros:
- B&B is located in a charming old house with great architectural features
- Room was very spacious and clean with high ceilings
- Breakfast was delicious and plentiful (the homemade cakes are the best!)
- Pedro and Marta treat you like old friends, extremely welcoming and helpful
- Nice touch to be given Port wine in your room on arrival

Cons:
- Our room faced onto the road which we found quite noisy at night with street traffic
- Some small details (such as refilling our empty hand-soap) were not completed
- Unfortunately we cannot recommend the B&B's laundry service, some of our clothes came back bleached and stained after sending them to the laundry service (which we were charged 10 Euros for), I had to pay at another B&B to have the majority rewashed (Pedro told us they had never had a problem with the laundry before, so not sure if this was an isolated incident)

Overall, we would recommend staying at Porta Azul.
Thank you Marta and Pedro for your warm hospitality!
