We had best experience ever during our stay in this guest house in Portal. The host, Joaquim and Elizabeth made us feel at home, everyday we had different well arranged breakfast, we enjoyed a lot our talk with Joaquim on various topics every morning. They bring a vivid Portugal to us by introducing the history of Portal, the fado music and the traditional food. Our room had been cleaned everyday, and our bed was made like we stay in a five starts hotel! At our arrival, we were given several maps and brochures, Joaquim explained his idea how we could tour the downtown on foot, where we may visit. The house location is very convenient with easy access to the highway and there is a family owned restaurant next door. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. Porto in October is beautiful, and has a good balance with comfort weather and not over crowded tourists. It is a must see city if you plan a trip to Portugal. Highly recommended this home if you travel to Porto!
