Neighbourhood

Porto soothes the soul. Portugal’s second city, it’s completely different in style and vibe to Lisbon. The rich history of the city is woven into everything you come across, from the food, the wine, the docks and commerce and even its people. 

It’s the kind of city where people come for a weekend and stay a lifetime. Edgy yet opulent, the city has art on every corner, from galleries and museums to street art to edgy modern art and graffiti installations, each telling the story of a different time and slice of Porto living.

Getting around

Within Porto you can walk everywhere, but there are also a plethora of other options from bike and electric scooter rental to Uber and Bolt, as well as municipal bus and train services. 

Porto is approximately 3 hours by train from Lisbon Apolonia Station, or 2.5 hours by road to Lisbon. You can reach Porto airport within 15-20 minutes by car / taxi.

We have limited private secure parking is available only 5 doors up – you can book it online after making your reservation.

“We stayed for a week at Canto de Luz and loved every minute of our stay. The staff gave advice on where to go, where to eat and how to get there. The breakfasts were culinary feasts. Our room was perfect: well-appointed, with all we needed to enjoy our stay. Location, location, location: not too far from anywhere, interesting local restaurants and boutique shops, walk everywhere.”

"We had an amazing time at this beautiful boutique maison, Everyone took great care of us. On arrival we sat with a cup of coffee and a chat with Mario who told us everything we needed to know to enjoy our first trip to Porto. The recommendations of where to eat were fantastic. Canto de Luz is the most beautifully restored home and our bedroom was perfect with an amazing bathroom. Thank you for making our trip to Porto out of this world.”
