Modern Portuguese Tradition & Hospitality

Facing the mouth of the Douro in the heart of Porto, this small luxury hotel in Portugal offers what “portuense” hospitality truly means. A passionate family project developed and designed by three sisters, the hotel allows for a connection to the past while firmly rooted in the present, offering a taste of tradition and a tranquil, modern oasis in the city. 

The 19th-century townhouse has been meticulously restored with a minimalist aesthetic, pairing vintage and contemporary Portuguese designs that are stylish yet unpretentious. Step through the “Two Doors” and discover a welcoming atmosphere that flows with Portuguese generosity.

Duas Portas has received the “Clean and Safe” stamp from Turismo de Portugal. For 2020, in addition to being able to book each room individually, it is now possible to book the entire house, which can host up to 18 people in eight suites, with various communal areas, kitchen, patio as well as a peaceful and sunny garden. Inquire for details.

Special

Book the entire property for up to 18 guests, starting from €600 per night, with a minimum stay of two nights. This rate includes VAT but does not include the Porto Municipal Touristic tax which is €2/night/person. Please inquire for more details.

Description

Set along the banks of the Douro in the heart of Porto, this beautifully restored 19th-century townhouse is a labor of love and a family passion project, conceived and designed by three sisters and born out of the desire to share the “portuense” hospitality. 

The restoration brings a taste of modernity within the historic context of the city, combining vintage pieces with furniture exclusively designed for the project with a meticulous attention to detail. Bright pops of colors and rich textures create harmony and simplicity.

Each of the eight individual rooms are unique and simply decorated in dreamy whites, four rooms look out toward the river and sea, while the rest overlook the gardens.

At the back of the house is a peaceful garden, offering a well-positioned retreat within the city, inviting guests to relax in a tranquil setting.

Breakfast is served daily with traditional homemade flavors, using high quality seasonal, fresh and unprocessed ingredients sourced locally.

This small luxury hotel in Portugal offers a tailored, caring and attentive service to its guests, in a tranquil seaside location, just minutes from the city center.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Breakfast served daily, housekeeping included, wifi throughout, TV in each room, bathrobes and slippers provided. AC in four of the rooms.

Optional sightseeing and tailored guided tours, airport transfers and car rentals, spa and beauty treatments, laundry and ironing, childcare upon request with fees. Access for people with reduced mobility, parking and bicycles for guest use.

AROUND

The seaside neighbourhood of ‘Foz do Douro’ offers some of the best areas along the Douro for a leisurely promenade along the riverbanks and some of the most spectacular views of the city from the nearby Miradouro de Santa Catarina viewpoint. Porto is the second largest city in Portugal, but its historic center, the Ribeira district with its cobbled streets, old storefronts and plazas, is still largely preserved and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996.   

Rich in Medieval history, the city is also famous for Santa Catarina street for shopping, traditional Fado music and the acclaimed Cafe Majestic along with Batalha Square where most of the city’s important cultural events and shows take place. Sights not to miss include the Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves and Rem Koolhaas’ Casa da Música.

And while in the city that created Port wine, enjoy the many cellar tours offered.
