The Guesthouse CANTO DE LUZ is located in the heart of Porto, close to Aliados and the central metro station (Trindade) directly connecting the city center to the airport and railway stations. Rua do Almada that plunges to the banks of Ribeira adjacent neighborhood where the festive Porto Vitória moved in recent years. The very contemporary interior architecture of this beautiful old building completely renovated enhances the traditional elements of the building. Love with the city and concerned about the quality of the stay of their guests to Porto, the owners will help you discover the many treasures of this city: unusual locations, viewpoints stolen, tasty ideas, share routes and enthusiasm to pass: that is the spirit of the place. The organization of this mansion offers guests a comfortable stay by allowing the independence and privacy. Side garden, large kitchen-dining room extends onto a long terrace ornate wood, where only birdsong breaks the silence. In summer, this is where are served breakfasts. CANTO DE LUZ offers four rooms with hardwood floor, bright, large volumes, where structures of wood, metal and glass punctuate the space and combine with stylish furniture from different eras. Closing CANTO DE LUZ: from 1 December 2013 to 6 February 2014.

Two nights at Canto de Luz

4.2 on May 17, 2016

We stayed two nights at Canto de Luz on May 13th, 2016. The B&B is well located, just a few minutes walk from the metro station Trinidade that takes you straight from/to the airport. The neighbourhood is lively, especially at night, but away from the hustle of the touristy spots, although all major destinations can be reached walking. The B&B takes its name after the luminosity of the place: once you enter the building you are flooded with light coming from the entirely glazed roof; the decoration is simple with a warm vintage flavour. An elevator serves the four floors of the building, and can be really useful when you come back after a day climbing up and down Porto's streets. We had a pleasant room on the top floor, very spacious, clean, and comfortable. We chose Canto da Luz because of its inner garden that we could't enjoy because of the weather conditions. Nevertheless, the spacious kitchen where we had breakfast in the morning was really worth it. Breakfast was just perfect: light and generous, offering local and home-made products (such as pastries, yogurts and jams, for instance). Last, but not least, Brigitte and André, the owners. They're welcoming upon your arrival, and helpful in providing suggestions, advices, and alternative options to enjoy your stay in Porto.

Marvellous stay...

I spent a long weekend at Canto de Luz and had a lovely time. Attention to detail and promoting local territory are key for Brigitte and André. The room was clean and bright - I loved having the kettle and the home-made buscuits! Breakfast was generous and exquisite with homemade and local specialities. Our lovely hosts made every effort to ensure we enjoyed the city. Transport links are good and frequent and the B&B is a short walk from the station. Would highly recommend!

Paradise in Porto

We stayed for 3 nights and appreciated the excellent service and superb facilities. Its walking distance to most of the tourist sites even though we had a car. The breakfasts are a delight, Please do not hesitate, as this is one of the best B&B places we have ever stayed at.

"LA" chambre d'hôtes à PORTO

4.6 on April 19, 2016

Brigitte et André ont été aux petits soins avec nous pendant ces 4 jours. Une chambre d'hôtes où l'on se sent accueilli par des amis, idéalement située pour découvrir cette belle et très attachante ville de Porto. Proche du métro (pratique quand on vient par avion de l'aéroport), des restaurants et du centre ville (et pourtant au calme!). Petits déjeuners et chambres parfaites. Adresse que l'on aimerait garder pour soi mais que nous avons recommandée à tous nos amis!

Las fotos no llegan a enseñar la excelencia de Canto do Luz

5 on April 18, 2016

CANTO DO LUZ, fue una agradable sorpresa... en todos los sentidos. Si bien las fotos hablan de un lugar rehabilitado con gusto, de espacio cuidados, de boho-chic... realmente, dichas fotos, no llegan a enseñar lo que es "sentirse en casa". Desayunos con mermeladas y bollería caseras, hechas con amor. Café "a lo francés". Macedonias y pasteles. Huevos con Bacon. Ummm! Habitaciones muy amplias con duchas de ensueño y una acogedora sala de lectura. La atención de Briggite y André, es impecable. Te hacen sentir como de la familia (sin ser pelotas). Y para mí, el gran detalle. Si llegas a Canto do Luz, después de un día de interminables caminas (y contando que Oporto es tan irregular como San Francisco) que haya ascensor... es un regalo! Repetiremos seguramente. Tanto en Canto do Luz como en Oporto. ¡Muy recomendables!

fantastique !

Un accueil chaleureux, des conseils en or, des petits déjeuner de roi fait avec amour, des chambres très agréables et confortables...bref une réussite totale ! On souhaite à tous le plaisir que l'on a eu à séjourner dans cette maison contemporaine, avec le calme du jardin-terrasse, un luxe en centre ville !

conveniently situated exceptional b&b

Four night stay to explore the city. The attention to detail by these two charming hosts cannot be overstated, they have thought of everything, and nothing is too much trouble.

Beautiful town house

We have just returned from our second stay at Canto De Luz. We thoroughly recommend this delightful townhouse within minutes of the centre of Porto, and close to the metro from the airport. Brigitte and Andre are both very welcoming and offer a high quality accommodation with superb breakfast including homemade and local produce. We look forward to returning next time we are in Porto.

Je recommande fortement cette chambre d hôtes. L' accueil y est chaleureux avec des hôtes très sympathiques, les chambres sont superbes on s' y sent bien dès que l'on arrive. Le cadre est typique avec un calme absolu malgré une situation en plein centre ville du vieux Porto. Le petit déjeuner est divin et très copieux avec chaque jour, entre autre, une nouvelle pâtisserie portugaise (fait maison). Excellent point de départ pour la visite de la ville et de ses alentours. A renouveler pour notre prochain séjour à Porto
