  • Karen Brown's Recommendation:

We have a reader to thank for sharing this wonderful guest house set in Ferdinand’s Wall in the historic district of Porto. Carmen and João discovered the house when they came to Porto on vacation from Montreal and were intrigued to find it for sale. As Carmen explains, all it took was to stand on the balcony to fall in love with the river view, the teensy little house with the black tiles and to know it was destined to be their home. Lots of work, frustrations and complications have resulted in what they term, “a happy ending, or rather, a happy beginning now with our wonderful guests.” One of a string of tall buildings all staggered and sandwiched together, overlooking the waterfront, it enjoys a historic ambiance and yet, is also limited by its narrow parameters. The breakfast room is intimate and has a limited number of tables so you will be asked to select a time slot. Breakfast is a spectacular feast of fruits, Portuguese cheeses, cold cuts, breads, cereals, yogurts, fresh squeezed orange juice. When selecting a room, know that while the waterfront rooms benefit from the river view, those overlooking the street are a little larger. Guestrooms are attractive and comfortable and have up to date bathrooms. Although, not the largest, request room 202 and stand on the balcony and like Carmen and João be captivated by this charming building, its setting and ambiance.
