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. Above: The communal lounge has an eclectic mix of vintage and new furniture. Above: A midcentury light fixture illuminates the space.
