Away from it

I have a board on Pinterest - 'Away from it' and today have been posting this amazing guest house I've been reading about called Miss'Opo. It looks and sounds right up my street. 
love the logo on the door and the intensity of the light coming through the glass
theatrical shelves
industrial meets opulence

Set up by 2 long-standing friends in 2011, they decided to create a project together, local to where they grew up and converted an old textile factory into a guest house. 

The location is Porto, Portugal and having visited the Algarve for the first time last year, it makes me want to jump on a plane and experience some more, particularly as Porto benefits from a by the sea location, similar to Barcelona!

What I'm loving about it, is that it has the backdrop of the old town, I'm always drawn to that part of a city, and they have paid specific attention to making their guests feel at home by providing local food and culture as the cafe is open to the public and hosts art events and small concerts!

Just checking flights for Autumn as I think by then, I'll need a little break to celebrate a successful launch!
