The Allens are extremely thoughtful, gentle and passionate people. You will see an amazing natural garden that's 150 years in the making. They are pockets of different gardens: Oriental; rain forest ferns and tallest pines.

A beautiful garden with lots of history beautifully recounted by the owners Alberto and Isaura, both experts in their field that made us feel so welcome. I wish I had found this garden earlier, a true gem in Porto.
