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.

Best B&B I've ever stayed in!

5 on August 19, 2016

We stayed here on a trip to Portugal and we wished we had been here the whole time! Andre and Brigitte have a beautiful house that is stylish and vibrant and tranquil. Their breakfasts were the highlight of our day with homemade goods and local produce. The rooms were beautiful and the bathrooms as well! They were very welcoming and helpful explaining suggestions for bars and restaurants and things to do. We liked it so much we wanted to know when they open again so we can come back! It's the best bed and breakfast We have stayed in!

Le bonheur à Porto

4.4 on August 09, 2016

On est sûr de ne pas se tromper en rendant visite à Brigitte et André qui sont comme certaines personnes dans ce monde près à vous donner du bonheur et il y en a dans cette maison d'hôte avec quelques hirondelles sur les murs synonyme de bonheur au Portugal. Nôtre chambre qui donnait sur le jardin était une belle suite parentale avec une grande douche et son gel douche bio, wc lavabo et un grand lit. La chambre a du parquet sur toute la surface du sol sur plancher béton ainsi que le balcon avec ses lames de terrasse bois. Après une bonne nuit Brigitte et André vous prépare un merveilleux petit déjeuner maison avec plein de bonnes chôses, on est pas obligé de tout manger mais personnellement on a goûter à tout par gourmandise et c'est du bonheur. Brigitte et André on chacun leurs spécialités mais on vous laisse la surprise de les découvrir, de toute façon tout est bon. Ensuite on vous invite à écouter les conseils qu'ils vous donneront sur les restos, bars, et lieux d'intérêts à découvrir puisqu'ils les fréquentes quand ils ont un moment. Après tout cela on peut profiter pleinement de Porto grâce à ce couple adorable que sont Brigitte et André. Merci à eux vraiment pour tout ce qu'ils ont fait pour nous, tout simplement du bonheur.

The perfect place to stay in Porto

5 on July 28, 2016

We had the pleasure of staying in Canto de Luz during our 4-night stay in Porto. Brigitte and André are wonderful people and hosts. They take you in like family. The room was beautiful, modern, and super clean. Our room had the best shower and bed you could imagine. The breakfast has a lot of variety and it is served in their kitchen/patio with a nice view. Also, Brigitte and André offer you many homemade products. The location is very good. Close to restaurants, entertainment and public transportation. We really felt pampered and missed not having more places as spotless like this for the rest of our travels! Without a doubt, we recommend Canto de Luz 100%.

Wonderful stay

We spent 3 nights at Canto de Luz and agree wholeheartedly with all of the outstanding reviews. The house is beautiful and spotlessly clean, with stylish (but personalized) touches throughout. Breakfast was the best we had during our trip, delicious and varied each day. The location made it easy to explore the city on foot. I will say one thing: when choosing your room, be aware that the garden-facing rooms get full afternoon sun, so the third floor room got a little warm. With the slider open, though, it cooled off nicely at night.

Un lugar encantador en el centro de Oporto

5 on July 19, 2016

Nos hemos encontrado como en casa. Un lugar super agradable gracias a la amabilidad de Brigitte y André, con sus esquisitos desayunos y sus sugerencias para visitar la ciudad de una forma muy especial. Habitaciones muy cómodas y un edificio con un diseño encantador. Seguro que recordaremos siempre nuestra estancia en Canto da Luz, que repetiremos y recendaremos a nuestros amigos.

Séjour très agréable grâce à des conseils avisés, un cadre charmant, un petit déjeuner royal... et Brigitte et André aux petits soins!

Si vous voulez séjourner à Porto, c'est là !

4.6 on June 21, 2016

Si vous allez à Porto et que de surcroit vous êtes français, il n’y a qu’un endroit où séjourner : la maison d’hôtes Canto de Luz, idéalement placée au cœur de la ville à 15 mn des bords du Duro, l’accueil étant assuré par Brigitte et André, installés ici depuis quelques années, qui ne sauront quoi faire pour vous rendre votre séjour des plus agréables. Petits déjeuners variant chaque jour dans lesquels les talents de confiturière et de pâtissière de Brigitte vous raviront, André, qui, s’il ne cuisine pas reste attentif à vos moindres désirs, se joignant à elle pour vous conseiller sur les choses à voir, les ballades à faire et les restaurants à fréquenter. Une dernière chose : les lieux sont constitués de 4 niveaux de mezzanines (ascenseur pour les moins jeunes !) éclairés a giorno par un toit en verre, la cuisine au 1er donnant sur un jardinet rempli de cactées et plantes diverses, les chambres étant à l’avenant, spacieuses et confortables. Et si en plus, comme nous, vous avez du beau temps, vous ne pourrez qu’être ravis de votre séjour.

Superb Guest House

5 on June 18, 2016

We have stayed at Canto De Luz on more than one occasion. The house is an amazing fusion of modern and traditional, offering the highest standard of accommodation. The breakfast is excellent and Andre and Brigitte are the very best of hosts. You will not be disappointed.

Quality all the way

We couldn't fault this delightful b and b. We stayed four nights, very friendly hosts, breakfast superb, attention to detail and first class food. Even freshly squeezed orange juice which we much appreciated.

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.
