The space
CLEAN & SAFE certificate (establishment according to health measures from the tourism of Portugal)

• Lots of natural light during the whole day will give a fresh and invigorating stay, and separate spots of artificial light during the night will provide the setting for a relaxed, romantic evening. It's the perfect place for wintery, cold days, snugging in the sofa watching a movie or doing other creative things. :)

• Beautiful decor, with plenty of pillows to lounge around.

• Gorgeous and romantic mezzanine with a nice, comfortable bed, and space for storing your clothes and belongings. If you like to see the "world" from above, you can always open the protection doors and enjoy an aerial view from the living room.

• Big sofa-bed in the living room with real matresses (2 meters long x 1,6 meters wide), and an extra sofa for lounging.

• Lovely Terrace for romantic dinners over a glass of wine, or a chat among friends.

• You will have full access to a mini library with fictional books written in English and Portuguese, and a small library with technical and artistic photography books. You are welcome to leave your own books if you wish to upgrade the library for future guests.

• Living Room
Super fast WIFI, Air Conditioning, 2 sofa beds, center table with seating pillows inside, table for 4 with 2 chairs and 2 stools, 24 inch TV with 100 channels, cinema projector with HDMI and Chromecast (just bring your phone, tablet or PC and stream the movies to the projector), board games, playing cards and dices.

The projector has HDMI connection, and a Chromecast device. If you have Netflix, or related, on your phone or computer, you just have to cast it to chromecast, same thing for youtube videos, or even the entire screen of your computer/phone if you'd like to see a movie with a movie player like VLC.

I'm leaving a small pendrive on one of the USB ports, that you can use to copy your movies and see them directly from the projector (just in case you can't connect with chromecast).

• Kitchen
Pretty much everything... fridge, freezer, microwave, oven, induction burner, toaster, capsule coffee maker, italian style coffee maker, kettle, deep sink for easy cleaning, ice breaker, multiple pans and plenty of cooking equipment.

• Bathroom
Toilet (great to have when you really need to go) ;)
Washbasin
Big shower (spacious enough for 2)
Toilet paper
Towels
Air dryer
Shampoo and body gel
SOS kit

• Mezzanine
Big comfy bed. Great for daydreaming while watching the hypnotic wood beams with the romantic lights on, two clothing storages and a medium size cloth hanger and pillows to lie down on the floor reading or snoring.

• Hall
Jacket holder, umbrella basket and a slate running door (the one that gives access to the bathroom) for your chalk artistic sketches.

Guest access
Access to the complete LOFT. It will be your own private house.
PLEASE read the House Manual, further below.

Free luggage storage at The Porto Concierge - Welcome Center.

Other things to note
•︎︎ The apartment is located in a quiet building. Please be careful with the noise levels during late night hours. There can be some noise from traffic outside during the day, but it is fairly muffled.

•︎︎ The apartment was conceived for people to enjoy it in a clean environment, and for that reason we ask our guests to take off their shoes as soon as they get inside the house (there is a special bench for that). The house floor is made of warm pine wood, and you will feel much better walking on it with your socks or barefoot. That way you can also enjoy sitting or lying on the floor (with or without pillows).

•︎︎ The LOFT is located on the 3rd floor. No elevator. You will have to climb 66 steps. Nothing much... just be aware of it if you think that might be a problem.

•︎︎ Check-ins and check-outs are flexible, EXCEPT in cases when there is another guest coming/leaving the same day. If you're arriving in the morning, please be advised that you might have to wait till 14h00 to check-in (that's the earliest hour for check-in when a previous guest is leaving in the same day).

•︎︎ We know that giving a specific check-in time is not always easy due to travel constraints, but please inform the concierge of your updated check-in times in advance, so you don't have to wait at the door if you happen to arrive earlier or later than expected.

•︎︎ The photos of the house were captured with a wide-angle lens to provide the highest amount of coverage. Wide-angle lens have the tendency to make things look bigger than they are, a distortion effect that can't be avoided. The house will look smaller in reality. It has an area of 45 square meters. But it has enough space for 4 people, with all the necessary amenities for total comfort. :)

Hi there, my name is Goncalo and I'm a photographer and filmmaker. A lot of my work is spent travelling, meeting and connecting with other cultures, creating the base for meaningful visual stories, some of which get to be published in places like the National Geographic Traveller. I've been to Malaysia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Morocco, Australia, Canada, USA and many EU countries (Spain, France, UK, Italy, Greece, Croatia, Netherlands and Germany), but I still prefer to live in good ol' Portugal - warm people, amazing coast line, delicious food, fantastic mountain trails and a real sense of security. :) I'm also an outdoor aficionado, and a regular practitioner of stand up paddling and climbing. I love and cherish the simple moments in life, like eating on a terrace with friends, while drinking a glass of red wine. As a guest I'll probably be your cleanest visitor. I like to have things tidy and organised, and I care for the places I stay in like my own. I spend my time exploring the city/town and surroundings, and use the house mostly for sleeping. As a host you will be treated like a special guest, and guaranteed that nothing is missing, so you can have the most comfortable experience. Once inside, it's your house, and I expect you to live it like your own. I'm not really driven by mottos... but cherishing and savouring the moment is something I live for everyday. Looking forward to meet you!
