JO&SO_Joana_Sofia_Lacerda

We’re Joana and Sofia, two sisters born and raised in Porto. We love travelling and between the two of us, we have visited over 30 countries. We always try to find special places to stay at – be it a boutique hotel or a simple guesthouse. What matters to us is their character, originality and beauty.

There are a lot of great travel websites out there, but the amount of information can be overwhelming. JO&SO is a carefully selected collection of our very favourite places in Portugal, for like-minded travellers – it’s like a list of recommendations we’d give to our friends who plan to visit our beautiful country.

We visit all the places that we feature, and we get to know the people behind it. We wanted to share their stories with you, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

More Recommendations

We often get requests for more recommendations so we thought we’d share our watchlist with you.

Family-Friendly

Currently, most of the hotels we feature are small and boutique, which means not so great for families. We have created this list for those seeking perfect family-friendly places.
