This is where the famous “Port Wine” is kept, among centuries-old cellars, streets and stone walls. As soon as we open the door, you’ll realize that you’ve just entered one of the best-kept and most sought-after secrets in the historic area of Vila Nova de Gaia.


Unlike any other cruise you can find in the city of Porto. Far from mass tourism and river traffic, we favor contact with nature and tranquility. Have a “non-touristy” experience on board an elegant Italian boat just for you!

" Best place we have ever stayed at. Every morning, there was a sack hanging on the doorhandle to the apartment with fresh bread and some sweet cakes. Theres coffee and tea facilities, and in the frigde there was free ham, cheese, butter, fruit juice. The best place we have ever stayed. We also went on a tour on the Douro river on a private boat with the owner of the studio, it was really nice.

"Our best experience on Booking, no exaggeration! Spectacular! Location, comfort, quality, kindness, attention to detail and disposition of the host... A rare gem. Perhaps the best experience so far in my long relationship with Booking. I will never tire of recommending it to friends and acquaintances. Well worth it, the perfect complement to a beautiful city. "
Luís - Chile
" Our home in Gaia! We stayed here for a long time and it was our base for visiting other towns in the region on short trips. The accommodation is very comfortable and complete! It has everything you need, even washing machines and tumble dryers. Fresh bread and pastries delivered to the property's door every morning and all the makings of a good breakfast available. The hosts are extremely kind and available. It was our second time in Porto! On our return to Porto, I won't even bother looking for another property!”
João - Brasil
