If you want a romantic getaway, optimal location to world-class (and many unrecognized) restaurants and picturesque beaches, with the cozy, personable, and amazingly considerate hosts- this is your destination. The pictures are precisely what you will experience.
We visited Porto for a shortened week and were pleasantly surprised by this experience. We were treated to an amazing European breakfast every morning, poolside in the garden. How do you like your coffee? Meia de elite? Galão? You got it. We rented bikes- the owners set us up with bike routes and suggestions for shops. Wanna be adventurous? How about a surf lesson? They connected us with that too. Maybe not adventurous but a foodie at heart- the recommendations we received were spot on- not just good food, but creative, off the tourist path, and enough that we frequented several multiple times. Honest and thoughtful suggestions, tailored to our interests, by and far the best place we have stayed, ever.
The owners take immaculate care of the garden and home, over-extend their thoughtfulness and friendliness, and share a unique and personal experience for visitors. Oh yes- and breakfast- the pictures don't quite do the flavors and experience justice- you must visit to gain full appreciation! 5 stars is no question. If we make it back to Porto- we will be looking to stay in the garden- if it isn't booked out!
