"A lovely destination at Ribeira do Porto, with the Douro River as its background"

Once Upon a Time...

In one of the most distinguished Oporto locations, the Ribeira, we find a lovely and charming 8 rooms guest house inviting us to discover the best views over Douro.

The rooms filled with portuguese details in its deco, with views over the river or the city. The building dates back to 1872 and opened its doors in 2014, after a profound remodelling process in which the house’s original details where kept intact.

Oporto city, whose historical centre belongs to UNESCO’s world heritage, is a mixture of tradition and modernity, and in this place we can walk the streets and find a city full of rhythm. From the tours to the Port Wine cellars to the local bars routes, the team is always ready with suggestions, in a very close and personal manner.

Let yourself get carried away by the Douro River’s beauty by staying in a room with the river as its background and enjoying a truly unique sunset.

Tiago and Teresa saw, in this 1872 historical building, the chance to build a project that would combine a very comfortable environment with the simple and unique touch of portuguese decoration. They also saw the opportunity to let their city be known in a very personal and local manner. Thus, on May 2014, the 1872 River House opened its doors. A house with two views: The river’s and its owners, that offer the best tips and hints about Oporto.

  • Lello bookstore, one of the oldest in Portugal and one the most beautiful in the world
  • “Francesinhas” at Capa Negra Restaurant
