A house where you feel at home

Once Upon a Time...

A Bela Aurora was a private residence built around 1870 in the historical centre of Porto, the people who built it left their mark on this beautiful townhouse with their sense of beauty and style, and their great sensitivity for form. This arts and crafts building is a peaceful home away from home for travellers and it has an informal and relaxed environment.
The house was totally renovated by a young prominent architect/designer. The interiors are furnished with made to measure handcrafts, some family antiques and a few classic design pieces. There are five large high ceiling bedrooms with a beautiful cosy warm light and a very comfortable living space. Some suites face the garden and some overlook the street; most have balconies. The large and beautiful garden is a secret green oasis with its old trees, flowers and singing birds.
