The Experience

On the first street built by King Dom Manuel connecting the merchant area on the Douro with the 12th century cathedral. The feel now is private, smart yet relaxing as you step in to a very friendly welcome and… 16th century granite walls, ancient tile panels and stuccoes, super fabrics, paintings, antiques and objects collected from all over the world and displayed with great style by the owner. Whether you’ve chosen a suite with city or garden views, with balcony or patio; all are quiet and seductively comfortable, with marble bathrooms.

Breakfast continental-plus style at the convivial dining table decked with hand-painted porcelain or out in the small garden, or in your room, before heading out to explore. Staff will help plan your itinerary, book restaurants, beauty treatments, port tastings, a day trip up the Douro valley to Pinhão. Spend a while in the candlelit sitting area with its well-stocked honesty bar and fascinating décor before heading out to eat.

The neighbourhood

In the historical centre of Porto - a UNESCO Heritage Site - the Rua das Flores buildings date from 1542. The now trendy, charming street has cafes, bars and jewellers and there are plenty of excellent local restaurants, at every price level; it’s a good idea to book in advance. All Porto’s major sites are within 10 minutes’ walk; it’s 5 minutes on foot to the main station and to public car parks

Maria Irene Schultze

Maria Irene Schultze is Portuguese and was born in Porto. Widely travelled, she is passionate about art, history, travel and hospitality – and is an exceptional host. What is now the Maison Particulière caught her eye as a crumbling, historic beauty desperately in need of rescue. After 5 years of meticulous preservation and renovation work it’s now an outstanding setting for Maria’s hosting style
