A 16th century neoclassical house in pretty Porto, the M Maison Particuliere has been transformed into a unique and eclectic property by a mother and son duo.

Property Details

The owners of M Maison Particuliere have a passion for history, art, and travel. These great loves are reflected in the unique décor of the boutique hotel. Each room is a feast for the senses, and feels like its own museum collection.

Just steps away from the beautiful city streets is the M Maison Particuliere, adored in a palette or bold colors. Striped wallpaper, glimmering chandeliers, sculptures, and tapestries all emulate the experience of being a guest in the home of a well-traveled friend. Black and white marble tiles are seen underfoot. At night this property takes on an ethereal glow with tea lights scattered about.

Each of the 10 suites differ in design and décor. Soft headboards enhance the comfortable beds and trinkets and artwork are carefully staged in each abode. Freshen up in the marble bathrooms, and look up to the wood-carved and Italian stucco ceilings. The inner area of the hotel is covered in 17th and 18th-century tiles extending up to the fourth floor. During their refashion, the owners made sure that the preservation of the architecture was paramount.

One Suite has a bold pink wall with Salvador Dali lithographs, a 19th century French fireplace, and a Maharaja painting. Step on onto the large private balcony to observe the pretty cobblestone streets below and the red tile roof homes that fill the spaces towards the river.

Local wine is sipped in the garden overlooking the Serra do Pilar Monastery. Learn about the wine making process at the Port Wine Cellars. Breakfast is served at the hotel, and other meals are discovered in the area’s many restaurants nestled by the Douro River. Fresh seafood is the main dish on most menus.

Just a short step away from M Maison Particuliere is a busy square with cafes and music; the perfect place to watch the people of Porto go about their day. Get lost in the narrow streets of the historical center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its mix of architectural styles, monuments, churches, and museums. The Church of Santa Clara and the Church of St. Francis are symbols of the Baroque period with gilded wood carvings. There is so much to see and learn in Porto with secrets around each corner, and the M Maison Particuliere has the same allure.
