The space

“Ilhas” (islands) are a type of construction that appeared in city of Porto in the 19th century and still exist today.
They were the solution found to answer the need for housing, that increased with the migration of workers from the rural space to the industrial city.
“Ilhas” were constructed by the employers and were usually located in the back of the employer’s houses. They are made of rows of 10/12 single-storer houses, with approximately 15m2 are each, placed along a narrow corridor.
This typology appeared due to the kind of land subdivision used by that time. The lot was 25 spans, 5,5 m wide and could reach 100m long. with toilets located at the end of the plot serving all the houses…

The industrialisation of the city led to a demographic growth which in turn led to this kind of housing spreading all over the city, specially near the industries. In the beginning of the 20th century 30% of Oporto’s population was living in “Ilhas”.

The low wages of the workers allowed them to live only in the cheapest types of housing available and those were the “Ilhas”.
My apartments are situated in one of those restored.

Francisca and Mariana have been great hosts! They provided us with a lot of insider suggestions on things to do (and eat) in Porto, which helped us live the city the way people from Porto do. The flat was cozy and literally seconds away from the metro stop, or a 15/20 min walk from the city centre. We would recommand them.

It was great. 10 minutes walking from train station and 15 to city centre. Apartment is beautiful, with everything we needed and more. Other thing is great communication with Nuno and Francisca, every time available, every time helpful. Check in by Francisca was amazing, explaining whole Porto, we got great tips and that is what you can dream of check in. Thank you for this experience.

Nuno went out of his way to make me feel welcome and give me a very extensive review of the sites that were walkable. Super clean, new Ikea finished private room w a pretty ingenious renovation w mirrored glass to let as much day light in as possible while maintaining privacy. A great deal with a genuinely kind host who was nice enough to arrange an airport pick-up for me. I can't recommend this place enough. Thanks Nuno. Thanks Porto!

El apartamento está bastante bien para pasar un par de días, hay algún ruido pero soportable, es muy pequeño pero funcional. NO HAY párking como dice el anuncio y está un poco lejos de la zona turística, pero ni está mal. Las chicas que lo atienden fueron muy cordiales y correctas.
