The Home of The Poet came to life due to its location. As the first house in our collection of rental homes, it is located on the street where the historical Portuguese writer Raúl Brandão was born, and after whom the street was named. Being our first home, it sets the tone with its catchy name, adopted both for the enterprise’s name as well as for its vision, which is the one to provide the guests and visitors of Porto with the finest and most attractive homes that it can manage. Situated in Foz Velha, a short walk from the river Douro, the Atlantico ocean and the garden of Passeio Alegre. The latter will have its construction finalised on March 2019, and it is just a short walking distance from the first house, on the street Rua do Montebelo.
The house now named Home Of The Poet was bought in 2011. It was an old abandoned house, that was bought with the purpose of creating exquisite accommodation in a charming residential area of the city of Porto, called Foz Velha.

It now has also two balconies facing the river and a facade composed of recovered blue and white tiles, so a typical of the Porto housing aesthetics.
