About us

CASAS DO PORTO is not just another lodging unit!

ABOUT US

Our company was created in 2012 with the aim of, from the concept of accommodation, expand its services and offer its guests a set of alternatives that will enrich their experience in the city of Porto. We started with 5 apartments and today we have a total of 8 units divided between 1 and 2 bedrooms.

Our objective is therefore not only to offer accommodation to those who visit the city of Porto, but much more than that. Above of all, we're focused on our customers. Because we know that all people are different in their tastes, their needs and their wishes, our challenge is to try to understand these differences and help them to have an unforgettable experience.

But because before being hosts we are also tourists, we know that a tourist experience is not only the places where we stay, but most of all the experiences we live, the things that we eat and drink, people we met, places we discover, smells we try to identify ... and because we also know that alone we can do nearly nothing, we create a group of partners (restaurants, tour companies, tourist guides, etc.) who help us to provide this experience to all our guests who honor us with their presence.

We believe that this is the best recipe that will allow us to offer the best service level,which above of all because it is based on Honesty, Rigor, Sympathy and Permanent Availability, from which we never give up.

Testimonials

Spacious; clean; excellent location; outstanding service

"There is little to add to the glowing reviews below. Customer satisfaction is the rule here, and it works. Every query we had before and during our stay was answered quickly and helpfully. We felt welcome: thanks to Barbara, Olivia and Rui. The experimental loan of a large-format smartphone with preloaded apps worked well..."

Wonderful stay!

"The apartments were situated in the perfect location and were spacious and clean. We wished we had more time to enjoy it - it was such a wonderful companion to the charming city of Porto. Rui & Olivia provided great tips and guides right from booking and Barbara was extremely attentive and responsive for anything we needed while we were there. Overall a fantastic experience..."

Fantastic Weekend

"These apartments were recommended to us and boy did they deliver. The apartments are spacious and very well appointed, in a fantastic location and provide a great breakfast. They couldn't do enough for you both before arriving (well worth the 25euro cost for a private car transfer) and while you are there."
