Boutique Hotel in Porto

Canto de Luz

the Hidden Gem of Porto

Canto de Luz - Boutique Hotel Porto

In 2008, we discovered the ruin that stole our hearts. Some 5 years later, we opened our doors as a luxury “Maison D’Hôtes”, brimming with French hospitality and design flair. Re-invigorated and re-imagined in 2021, la Maison goes from strength to strength with the opening of our new 2 bedroom private villa with pool, Villa Almada.

In summer 2023 we opened two new Duplex Garden Villas – These luxury one-bedroom mezzanine villas are set in our tranquil gardens and feature their own private outdoor patio and seating space and fully equipped kitchens.

Our breakfast has become part of Porto and Tripadvisor folklore. Homemade and organic, it changes daily and is made using the freshest ingredients from Porto’s markets.

Canto de Luz boutique hotel Porto is perfectly situated in the heart of the old town – just a few minutes’ walk from all the key locations but still set back from the main streets to offer the peace and tranquillity we are famous for.
