Within a cosy atmosphere, unique architecture, and excellent location, Duas Portas is a family project, which is born out of the true “portuense” (people of Porto) desire to host at home.


The restoration of an old house, not shying away from bringing a taste of modernity, gives way to a building that has not forgotten the context in which it is inserted in - Porto.


With wide-open views, the house is situated directly in front of the mouth of the Douro River, a unique location, given its tranquillity and proximity to the sea, and 10 minutes from the city centre.


With a total of eight rooms, all of them unique, four rooms look out toward the river and sea, while the rest overlook the garden.
The architecture by Luisa Penha, allows for the connection between past and present, offering tradition with comfort.


The decoration follows the same line, combining design pieces with furniture exclusively designed for the project. You’ll find attention to detail, from the colours and textures to the materials, creating harmony and simplicity as a whole.
Envisioned, designed and conceived by three women from the same family, Duas Portas offers a tailored, caring and attentive service to its guests.
At the end of the series of spaces that make up the house, one is delightfully surprised to find: a peaceful garden, offering a well-positioned retreat within the city, inviting guests to stop, breath, think and feel.


Duas Portas (Two Doors) are always open and invite you to experience and live the true “Ser Português” (Portuguese way), escaping typecasts and commonplaces.
