We stayed at Casa Formosa every time we visited our daughter who was studying in Porto. What a find! It made all the difference to our trips to the lovely city of Porto. Not only are the bedrooms spacious and light and airy, but there is a comfortable dining-sitting room, 2 terraces to sit outside and a lovely fully equipped...

If you are looking for a true B&B experience and not just a room, this is a perfect solution. We only met Sara briefly but Joao turned up every morning with fresh bread or something else from the bakery for breakfast. The ktichen is fitted out well and the breakfast provisions provided make this exceptionally good value. The room is...

Unbeatable location, immaculately clean apartment, super friendly hosts, and very professionally run. We only had one night in Porto but the host was wonderfully accommodating, greeting us on arrival and giving us a great overview of how to get the most from less than 24 hours in the city. I would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Porto.

My husband and I stayed here in May 2011. The directions given from the airport were spot on and we had someone waiting for us at the apartment to greet us. The location is amazing and the rooms very spacious and clean. We would 110% stay here again!!

We stayed in the top floor apartment for a couple of nights in October last year. I was reluctant to write a review as it is one of those places that you want to keep a secret ;) The apartment was absolutely immaculate with everything we could possibly need. The view from the balcony across the perfectly kept garden was...

although a casa formosa is in the midst of a busy and bustling part of town, the apartment is calm, cool and soothing. we only stayed a couple of nights, but would be back in a second and would wholeheartedly recommend this place.
