M Maison Particulière is one of Porto’s most beautiful accommodation options and happens to be located on one of Porto’s most beautiful streets. What’s not to love?
The boutique hotel, which functions more like a private residence, is dripping in five-star opulence. Once you’re buzzed into the fancy reception area decked out with a chandelier, leather sofa and ornamental fireplace, be escorted to one of the ten spacious rooms flaunting individual personality and style.
Options include a room with a private terrace backed with a feature wall of original Portuguese azulejo tiles, a room with a rooftop balcony overlooking the bustling Rua das Flores and port cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia, and a room with an incredible wood carved ceiling (discovered amid the rubble of the formerly dilapidated building). The interior design incorporates attractive textiles and bold colour schemes, while luxurious extras include oversized padded bedheads, curated artwork, fluffy robes and towels, and quality toiletries. The overall feel channels Great Gatsby-like glam in a way that is brave but not garish.
Artwork sourced from around the globe adorns the corridors, and feature pieces can also be found in the dining room where a chandelier illuminates striking red and black-striped walls. Here guests are served a hot breakfast plus pastries, fruit and local cheeses.
To top it all off, the hotel service is genuine and friendly and staff can help arrange tours and private transfers as required.
