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!

Stunning first floor apartment in traditional neighbourhood close to Douro and Atlantic

  • 5 of 5

A really beautiful flat, thoughtfully and imaginatively renovated and furnished with a view to character. The main bedroom is particularly lovely, with a large comfortable bed and tall French windows overlooking one of the narrow cobbled streets of Foz Velha, a former fishing village on the mouth of the Douro, on the northern edge of Porto. There is a beautiful park at the bottom of the road, and easy access to central Porto by bus or on the old tram. Several Atlantic beaches are easily accesible on foot. We love this flat and hope to come again soon! We found the kitchen well stocked, and Ariana has great style.

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.
