Grandmother Chic in Portugal, with Rooms for Rent

January 11, 2016

Emanuel de Sousa, an architect, and his finance sister Patricia de Sousa teamed up in 2012 to open Rosa Et Al, a six-room guesthouse in a 19th-century building in the arts district of Porto, Portugal, with a midcentury vibe, accented with unexpected homey touches (including afghan throws crocheted by Patricia). The hotel’s small concept shop offers design books, homemade limoncello, local Portuguese wines, and more; also on offer: wine tastings, special events, and workshops and retreats (including Knitting Mindfulness, focusing on crochet, tricot, embroidery, yoga, and meditation). We’re booking our tickets now.
