Mother and Son in Porto, Portugal - improving the art of hospitality
Welcome to our self-catered apartments!
Located on the historical center of Oporto, in the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Center, you'll find a building that belongs to our family for four generations.
After my mother (Lu'is grandmother) passed away in 2010 I inherited this building and found a really degraded space with a lot of structural problems and fierce tenants.
Having one apartment vacant me and my sons decided to refurbish the entire apartment and prepare it with all the needed amenities for a modern and cozy experience.
And we decided to rent it for tourists.
The first of our apartments came to daylight in May 2012. Our yellow apartment.
The experience was so overwhelming with massive bookings and great reviews that we decided to "tackle" the rest of the building.
And so we did.
In October 2012 the building went to major refurbishment works with all the structural, electricity, plumbing and communications being changed.
We repaired all the commons spaces, painted all the walls and ceilings, changed the windows, repaired and changed the floors, changed all the bathrooms and kitchens while maintaining at the same time all the qualities that give this building it’s finesse.
There wasn't a single square inch that we didn't touch!
The rest of the apartments came to the market in June 2013 and the bookings went sky high!
Right now we have 8 apartments: Blue (6 pax), Yellow (6 pax), Green (2 pax), Pink (2), Brown (2), Orange (2), White (2) and Grey (2).
Again all the critics are excellent with major emphasis on the quality of the apartments and the warm welcomes that both I and my son Luís provide.
This is a family business made with love and with respect for the guests that come here.
We want you to feel at home in a foreign place and we like to consider you as more than guests.
You are our friends that come to visit our beautiful city.
Be prepared to a personalized check in, with our mostly enjoyed briefing on sightseeing, Oporto History and local tips!
So, enjoy our apartments!
