About Ariana Magalhaes

Travelling and meeting new cultures is a passion that I share with my husband. And we love to host people from around the world!

Our accommodations are beautiful hidden spots located in the fashionable district of Foz that were designed to provide a unique and exclusive experience in Porto. We have available a four-bedroom boutique hotel, a two-bedroom apartment and a one-bedroom apartment that I have carefully decorated to make you feel like home...

They are just a few steps from the riverfront and the ocean and only 20 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Porto.

We are thrilled to welcome you in our lovely hometown Porto!

Beautiful apartment in a lovely and historic neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had an absolutely lovely stay in Ariana's apartment in Foz. The apartment itself was very clean, comfortable and beautifully appointed with plenty of room. The master bedroom was especially lovely. We were located on an historic street in Foz, near the sea and very close to the bus directly into Porto's city center. It was all very convenient and easy to access. When we arrived at the apartment, we were greeted with a beautiful bottle of wine, cheese and chocolate and some good information about stores, restaurants, and local transportation. All in all, a beautiful stay and we will definitely return.

Great location - close to Atlantic beaches and river walks and park. Quiet part of city with comfortable walks to stores, small cafes, etc. Ariana is great helpful host who advised on excellent small fish restaurant and places to visit. Apartment is comfortable with lovely master bedroom and nice bathroom. Second bathroom is actually a half bath by US definitions. Apartment is on second floor up narrow stairs, but Ariana insists on carrying bags herself. Be aware, street is very narrow and no parking on that street, but we had no problem finding street parking just down the block on main thoroughfare. Lovely experience.

Lovely Flat, Perfect Location and Warm and Accomodating Hostess!

  • 5 of 5

Our flat in Porto was nice, well appointed and very clean. Our hostess was lovely, friendly and so very helpful in accommodating our needs throughout our stay. She was absolutely wonderful.

The flat is just across the street from the ocean, which has a park that is adjacent to it. There is activity in the park but it is very quiet and peaceful, especially if you choose to take a stroll in the evening. A larger beach area is just down the street and is an easy walk from the flat. Small specialty shops where you can purchase food and wine are just around the corner. We could not have chosen a better place and I heartily recommend Casa Rua Bela. I believe you will be well pleased. We were very happy with our choice of accommodations and all of the amenities connected to it. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant. We greatly appreciate it.

Excellent, great apartment in a very good location

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything we need, well kitted out and very well decorated, looked like new.

Adriana was extremely helpful and caring to make sure we had a very enjoyable stay.

The apartment is a short walk to the beach and all local amenities including a wide range of excellent restaurants.

It is also only a short ride back in to Porto
