The arts and residence Casa do Conto (House of Tales) is a charming building in the emerging Cedofeita area in central Porto. It is the result of a restoration project to convert a 19th-century bourgeois home to host demanding and discerning guests in an atmosphere of striking cultural imagery. An innovative project which could only have been possible in the urban setting of a city.
All the ceilings in the rooms have been engraved with low relief “stories” embossed in the cement which talk of the concept of the “house” and of this house in particular. The tales were created by different authors and are related to Porto and its architectures. They restore the memory of the old town evoked and almost crystallized in this new building.
Casa do Conto provides as standard a set of services with the aim of enabling guests to enjoy a unique and welcoming environment.
The house boasts a Reception with waiting area, Lounge with fireplace, Library, Dining room with patio and Garden with fruit trees.
