— How would you describe myhomeinporto in a nutshell?

Juan: “myhomeinporto is a beautiful guest house in the Bonfim neighbourhood of Porto, in northern Portugal. This 1930’s house with a green tiled façade is my home. I wanted to meet new people and offer them a place to stay that feels like home, so I opened up three individual guestrooms to those coming to this beautiful city.”

— Please tell us about the guest house and the rooms.

Juan: “Guests stay in a typical Porto house with three floors and a garden in the back. The original three-meter high ceilings compliment the wooden floors to create a warm atmosphere.

The three guestrooms have double beds, as well as private bathrooms. The top room facing the street also has a balcony. Each room has a different style, so guests may choose from a green room, a yellow room, and a rose room. They feature unique family furniture and elegant decorations, which I have collected over the years living in Portugal, France and Spain.

The green room faces the garden and is flooded with morning light, while the yellow and rose rooms face the street and glisten with natural light in the afternoons. Two bedrooms are on the top floor, with the largest guestroom facing the garden. The third bedroom is on the middle floor, as well as the kitchen and dining room. My private apartment is on the ground floor, and also a library that is available to guests of myhomeinporto.”

— Please tell us about the facilities and services offered at myhomeinporto.

Juan: “I prepare breakfast every morning. It is served in the dining room or, weather permitting, in the garden. Breakfast includes fresh bread, homemade cake, fruit, yogurt, juice, tea, coffee, and other local products, such as ham, cheese, and vegetables.

One of my favourite things to do is to prepare delicious meals for my guests, using fresh food from nearby markets. Breakfast is typically the perfect time to discuss the upcoming day. Of course, I am always available to exchange ideas with guests via email prior to their arrival, and onsite during their stay at myhomeinporto.”

— How would you describe the atmosphere of the house?

Juan: “myhomeinporto is not a big guest house, so there are never too many people there. It’s a very quiet place, with lots of natural light. Built in the 1930’s, we tried to keep the original design as much as possible. In my opinion the ambience is equally as perfect outside as it is inside. The neighbourhood is full of beautiful tiled buildings with coloured windows, and gardens full of flowers and trees. It’s a very welcoming and open atmosphere, where you can hear the seagulls and smell the fresh ocean air.”

— And the interior design was done by you?

Juan: “Yes, I worked as an interior designer for many years. I instantly had a clear idea of what I wanted to do with the house. Actually, doing the interior design was quite easy as the house is so beautiful. It was kept simple in terms of furniture and decorations, so that the atmosphere is light and airy yet cosy with the vintage wood pieces in all the rooms.”

— Who is the perfect guest for myhomeinporto?

Juan: “The guest house is pretty centrally located, but not in a busy area. So, the perfect guest would be someone who doesn’t want to stay directly in the middle of the touristic area, but rather in a quieter home close to it.”
