About Us

    - Breathe the history and hospitality of Oporto -

    Welcome to Maison Des Amis

    Maison des Amis, Guest House is located at the historical centre of Oporto, classified by UNESCO as World Heritage Humanity in 1996 and elected the best European destination 2014 by the European Consumers Choice. The building, recently restored by architect Liliana Giesta Ramos, shows all the uniqueness of the city's XIX century domestic architecture.

    Our guests will enjoy a peaceful environment, both inside and outside due to the surroundings of the house and to the gardens of the Palácio de Cristal, situated in about 100 meters.

    When you open the door either you walk, get the tram or bus, you can revive the history visiting the Downtown, Ribeira, Douro River, the Casa da Música,... and the art galleries street, Rua Miguel Bombarda.

    With a warm and welcoming hostess of the house, the Maison des Amis, Guest House combines the charm and elegance of a historic building with tasting of homemade and local products.

    Rooms with a wide area of 40 to 50 m2, some with two bathrooms, offer a place to rest, enjoy and breathe the history and hospitality of Oporto.

    Our guests can also be delighted at the terrace and garden, or at the living room with TV and free Wi-Fi throughout the house.
