Porto for insider: The stylish Casa1015 is located between Douro and Atlantic Ocean in the vibrant Foz neighbourhood. The house from the 19th Century is situated in one of the narrow, winding streets which are typical for Porto. The renovation was designed by the Pritzker Prize winner Eduardo Souto de Moura and thus the refurbished and expanded building surprises with modern architecture. Soft colours, natural stone and wooden floors, combined with the simple and elegant furnishings create a relaxed, intimate atmosphere.
The house was operated until 2015 as a B&B under the name 4Rooms Porto and can be found under this name in many publications, it is now a holiday house with only 3 rooms.
