Travellers' Choice
Bienvenue Chez Vous - Welcome to your Home in Porto. In 2008, we discovered the ruin that stole our hearts. Some 5 years of loving restoration later, our luxury Maison, Canto De Luz opened to the public. Hiding behind the traditional facade of an elegant merchant townhouse in the centre of the Old Town is a beautiful soaring modern atrium that welcomes you, our friends and guests, to your home from home here in Porto. The French breakfast at Canto De Luz has become the stuff of Porto and Tripadvisor folklore! The menu, which changes daily, is homemade and wherever possible organic, using freshly sourced local ingredients from Porto's markets, served to you at your table - It's a treat to behold. The whole team are very excited to share their passion for Porto, matched by the desire to welcome people from all over the world Chez Vous a Porto. Many of our guests have become friends who come and stay again and again. We would love you to join them. À bientôt !

This hotel is absolutely lovely. We were met by a very pleasant woman who showed us our room and gave us lots of restaurant recommendations. The room itself is fantastic - extremely modern, spacious with a really comfy bed. The breakfast was the best I have ever had in any hotel - freshly made, varied and DELICIOUS. Will definitely be staying again :)

Property's Favourite Review
Beautifully restored old villa in the old town of Porto, very tasteful. Large rooms, perfect bathroom, comfy bed, fantastic staff, wonderful breakfast. I arrived late with a headache and no toothpaste - the lady that welcomed me took me to her private room and from her personal supplies gave me painkillers and a load of toothpaste. I had to leave early in the morning and inquired if breakfast could be served earlier - not a problem! And a delicious breakfast it was served by a lovely, super helpful young lady. Will definitely be coming back here. Highly recommended

Beautiful design and great comfort. Absolutely recommend! The area was central and the neighborhood itself was charming. The lady in charge of the guests was so helpful and nice. Very pleasant, and quite a special boutique style.

Crews of the hotel are really nice and kind with integrity. And the place was so cozy and nice to stay for Porto trip. If my family had a chance to visit Porto once more, we would choose this hotel again.
